This is a commercial WAD and will not be downloaded.
« on: December 16, 2012, 15:43:01 »
Every time I try to connect to a server on my XBOX, it says that DOOM2 is a commercial WAD and will not be downloaded.

Fine with me, I already have it, but why does it keep saying this and never allow me to join a game?

Thankx!

If your version of a WAD does not match the server's version, the client will automatically try to download it. In an IWAD's case, it will just kick you and give the "cannot be downloaded" error. Perhaps your doom2.wad is modified or outdated. Try using an iwad patcher to update it.

Turns out my DOOM2.WAD was corrupted somehow. Must have been when I was running a Hex editor and then slade on it a while back.

Anyhow, to be sure, 1.9 is as high as the version goes right?

Thankx, I was not sure with the release of DOOM 3 BFG edition and all.

Anyhow, you got me going, it is no longer trying to download the DOOM2.WAD! :)
