Launcher failing to launch game
« on: August 01, 2012, 10:44:07 »
Hello, I'm using Odamex under Arch Linux and when I try to join a server, nothing happens...
I have the path to my WADs (which contains the IWAD for Doom 1 and 2) set in the settings.
Playing the single player, without a server, works fine though.

I feel like I'm missing something that should be right under my nose. Apologies if it's a dumb mistake. What could it be?
Thanks.

I'm assuming that Odamex loads and stays in the full console mode instead of connecting to a server and joining a game.  It's difficult to guess exactly at the problem when you say "nothing happens", so could you take a screenshot for us?  You can do that by simply entering "screenshot" into the console, which I hope will give us all the relevant debugging info.

By nothing happens, I mean quite literally nothing happens. Double clicking on the server's name, hitting the "connect to selected server" button, etc.

Found the problem, I had to set the path to /usr/bin since it was set to my home folder by default. Durr.
