Wad (console command)

From OdaWiki

The wad console command loads a wad file at runtime, it can also load optional dehacked and bex patch files along side it.


wad pwad [...] [deh/bex [...]]
wad iwad [pwad [...]] [deh/bex [...]]

First command loads a pwad, along with optional pwads, along with optional dehacked or bex patch files.

Second command is identical to above, but must have an iwad specified first.

NOTE: iwad files such as doom2.wad can have .wad omitted, but pwads (eg hr2final.wad) must have them, same with patch files.
