How to Download .WAD files in Windows 10
« on: September 12, 2020, 03:15:31 AM »
Is there somebody that knows how to get Chex .wad files to work on computers with Windows 10? I can download and play Chex Quest 3 just fine since it was an application file. But I can never access the Fan Projects which only shows games with .wad files. Can someone help me how to do it right? I will appreciate it. Thank you for your time and consideration.

Sure thing!

You're missing two things:
1. A Source Port (Which is the application you're missing)
The mod should tell you what source port is required in either the post/place you got it from, or in the readme.txt file that came with it. (Assuming such a file is included). If you can't find that, I believe most mods use GZDoom, which you can find here:

2. An Iwad to go with the wad from the mod you just downloaded.
It should also be mentioned by the source you got the mod from. If it's not, an Iwad is generally the wad that comes with ChexQuest or ChexQuest3. ChexQuest's wad is called "doomu.wad" or "Chex.wad", while CQ3's is called "Chex3.wad". If one doesn't work, you can try the other.
Chex.wad Link: It's a bit hard to find here, but you want (I think). The download section here seems to broken, so this is the only proper one I could find at the moment.
ChexQuest3 link:

Now all you really need to do is have all these files in one folder, drag the mod's wad file onto GZdoom.exe and it'll run it, then it'll ask for an iwad (It should provide a list, choose which one you want). And play. If the mod you downloaded came with a .bat file, you can try running that, which will attempt to do the same thing as drag and drop.

Long Answer:
Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.
I know what you're thinking. No, I don't like peanut butter.

If I had to choose between the real world or the Chex Quest Fan forums; I'd choose the Chex Quest fan forums.
