I've used Doomsday extensively in the past on two different PCs: One a Dell home PC with Windows XP (which had a NVIDIA gaming graphics card [64 MB]) -which PC I owned back in the early 2000s. Most recently I had Doomsday installed on a 2007 Compaq laptop with Windows 7 which also had a Nvidia gaming graphics card with 64 MB of RAM. In both of these PCs, Doomsday installed and ran flawlessly.
I recently purchased a refurbished HP Workstation laptop with Windows 7 Professional. The native graphics card of this system is the 'non-gaming' NVIDIA Quadro 3000m -a 2GB graphics card manufactured for business purposes as opposed to being a 'gaming' graphics card. That being said, however, I have 'tested' many games that I was skeptical concerning their ability to be 'playable' on high settings on my current laptop -and so far all of them have been very 'playable'....thus this NVIDIA Quadro graphics card appears to at least be fairly good for gaming.
Very recently I decided to install Doomsday on my current HP laptop. The installation of all versions of Doomsday which I have installed has been error-free and issue-free. I currently have a registered Heretic: Shadow of the Serpents wad installed on my laptop. I had this same wad on my previous laptop. On my previous laptop, when I executed this wad with Doomsday, there were countless 'options galore' in the interface menu of Heretic -including GRAPHICS options which included dozens of settings.
On my CURRENT laptop, however, when I execute this Heretic wad with Doomsday the GRAPHICS OPTIONS are completely absent from the Heretic interface: There is no GRAPHICS menu whatsoever. I have tried installing and uninstalling about 6 different versions of Doomsday engines and it's the same: No graphics options or graphics menu are to be found in my Heretic game.
Why would I have had the graphics menu and options present in the Heretic game on my TWO PREVIOUS PCs......but not on my CURRENT laptop?
