(MD5sum: b4661171f295478e45db484315278512)
Release Notes:
Development Test 1 ver. 2.3.1 (07-04-2009):
updated to ZDoom 2.3.1 and GZDoom 1.2.01, plus fixed AppInfo so that DLauncher shows up in the new menu.
Development Test 1 ver. 2.3.0 (08-03-2009):
Updated to version 2.3.0 of ZDoom and version 1.2.0 of GZDoom, as well as laod game implemented in DLauncher.
Development Test 4 (04-02-2009):
Level warp implemented in the Single Player tab.
Development Test 3 (29-01-2009):
PWAD support in DLauncher, plus fix to the double click issue.
Development Test 2 (26-01-2009):
fixed DefaultData problem in DLauncher.
Development Test 1 (25-01-2009):
Initial Release

Notes:
There is two launchers for ZDoom at the moment. one is just done in NSIS (ZDoomPortable.exe), and the other is done in AHK (DLauncher.exe). DLauncher still needs a lot of work, and if anyone feels the need to work on it, feel free to do so.
Also, IWADS go into App\IWADS . If you're looking for wads, I would have to say Freedoom which is an open implementation of the Doom wads.

Didn't work with the wad in

Didn't work with the wad in /App/IWADS but works fine with it in the same folder as the zdoom exe

OS is windows vista home premium SP1 if that's of any importance (doubt it)

Thanks for this though Smile

:O I love you!

AWESOME!
Time for some dooming!
Biggrin

Also, I fixed DLaunchers Problem.
What you have to do is go to the .ini files in
X:\Portableapps\ZDoomPortable\app\ZDoom
and
X:\Portableapps\ZDoomPortable\app\GZDoom

open both .ini files and paste this over the original IWADSearch.Directories:

[IWADSearch.Directories]
Path=.
Path=$DOOMWADDIR
Path=$HOME
Path=$PROGDIR\..\IWADS

Do it to both ZDoom and GZDoom, put the WADS in the IWad folder in
X:\Portableapps\ZDoomPortable\app\IWADS

and DLauncher should work afterwords.

hmm, I thought i did that.

hmm, I thought i did that. I'll see if i can fix that.
EDIT: I also forgot to mention in the original post that this also includes GZDoom. to use it with the NSIS version, just copy Other\Source\ZDoomPortable.ini to the main directory. DLauncher can change between the two in the Advanced tab.

But there’s no sense crying over every mistake,
You just keep on trying till you run out of cake.

Considering the .wad files

Considering the .wad files are available on ID's website, I think that makes it legal to download them.

possibly. I would have to

possibly. I would have to talk to john about wether or not its allowed.
quote (from http://www.nongnu.org/freedoom/download.html):

Complete IWAD - located under freedoom-iwad
    Complete independent Doom II game.
Ultimate IWAD - located under freedoom-iwad/ultimate
    Provides all the resources found in The Ultimate Doom. Allows the full catalog of PWADs for Doom 1 to be used.
"Demo" IWAD - located under freedoom-iwad/shareware
    Cut-down version of Freedoom with a smaller download size. The demo IWAD contains the same complement of resources found in the original "shareware" version of Doom.
FreeDM - located under freedm
    FreeDM is a project whose goal is to create some high-quality deathmatch levels. It uses resources from the rest of the Freedoom project to create a stand-alone deathmatch IWAD. 

so if we can we should be able to get the Complete and Ultimate versions in to provide Doom 1 and 2.
also, forgot to mention that DLauncher now has PWAD support (same as IWADS, except they're in App\PWADS)

new version, has level warp

new version, has level warp under the Single Player tab. quick note on it, if you get an error saying that the level doesn't exist, swap it to use the other level type.
Explanation: Doom 2 has a different level layout. instead of using episodes (E1M2) like Doom 1, it has its maps in groups of 32 (MAP16). Doom-style warp is done via -warp 1 2 whereas Doom2-style warp is done with -warp 16. So using Doom-style warp (-warp 1 2) on Doom 2 won't work, as E1M2 doesn't exist within the Doom 2 IWAD (but MAP16 does).

Nice!

I just downloaded ZDoom, for the first time ever, in fact, in this portable version. I haven't played Doom at all, either (a little Woolfenstein 3D in middle school, though). I didn't see any problems when I was running it. Nice work! Especially the smiley in the "About" section of the program.

Hey! Where'd it go?

Cool, thanks for testing it. There hasn't been any ZDoom updates in a while, hopefully randy (the dev) is still working on it.

i love whomever made this portable

I'm a doom freak so when i found this back here i lost my mind. I bought the original doom,hexen and heretic games from id software back in the day so when i attempted using the iwads,i found that the dlauncher works perfectly and recreated the original doom on my flash drive. then i went looking for the freedoom wads and i compiled a 2 gig database of them. So what i have left is a whole gigabyte of pwads that work with dlauncher and with the original iwads,it recreated the game and expansion pwads as one entity. As far as i can tell, i perfected dlauncher 2.3.1 cause it works on windows 98-win7,and the finished game is 1.3 gigs. all of it works perfectly. the origianl game iwads and the freedom iwads all work and i been having a field day ever since. Thank you for all of your hard work making doom portable possible. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. you guys truly rock!!

Still in development

The release team is currently going through the list of applications in testing and preparing applications for release. As a result, we need to know if this is still being developed.
