Sorry this may be long, but am really struggling with this.
Some weeks ago I found and ran Doomsday/Kickstart. I loaded in Doom, Doom II, Plutonia and TNT. They all ran well, with no issues.
Over this past weekend I had some heavy computer issues. So I was into a lot of settings and so forth, and during the process of troubleshooting the computer I broke my Doomsday/Kickstart installation. I tried to reinstall it but I cannot get it to work.
I run a clean, updated, Windows XP Home machine, with sufficient resources to run the game.
I have installed the Kickstart and the Snowberry, and neither one loads. It tries.....the screen goes dark, but before it goes any further it gives me some OpenGL BS that's really just getting on my nerves now. I've spent hours pouring thru blog sites, reading and trying various things, and it took me hours to finally figure out how to use the "-allowsoftware" command. This loads the game, but it's so slow and the graphics are so bad the game is unplayable.
I don't understand what was present in my system before that is not present now to allow this thing to load and play.
Can anyone take an orange crayon and draw me some pictures with an explanation so I can get this working...please?
I'm confident that I have all the WAD files in the correct place....and mind you....I loaded the game before and got it to work just fine. I just need ideas to fix the broken pieces.
