Edge Shell/Launcher(ESL)

Description / Descripción

Edge Shell/Launcher (ESL) is a simple to use graphical front end (launcher) for use with the DOOM Source Code port EDGE. The purpose of this launcher is to set the command-line options for EDGE by simply clicking what you want and then launching the game, instead of repeatedly typing commands or making multiple shortcuts. It *should* work with most other source ports, albeit in a more limited fashion than with EDGE, but be careful if you do. It was created by me, Luke Brennan (AKA Lobo in Doom circles) and came about due to frustration with the command-line arguments when I was creating my TC, and the fact that I noticed there are a lot of MS-Dos virgins out there!

 

Features / Caracteristicas

  • Drag and drop loading of Wad files.
  • User-defined config files (*.elc files). You can now save personalized configurations to have different port configs for different projects. Is that cool or what!
  • Recent file list, which holds the last 5 ELC files you've opened.
  • 4 Customizable Buttons that you can use to call your favorite Doom editing Apps
  • Supports different languages. Choose language from inside ESL (at the moment only English and Spanish)
  • ESL warns you about possibly dodgy wad names/paths when you're adding a wad to load.
  • Support for Deh/Bex/Hwa files ("Get add-on" button)
  • NEW "Package It!" feature to aid in distributing your TC/Mod, which will create a zip with all your TCs files and a MiniLauncher GUI program to run your TC in the source port of your choice, so the end user doesn't need to use commandline arguments to enjoy your work.
