Launch Doom with ZDoom always through Steam?

I've just installed some Doom engine games with ZDoom. I had bought them on Steam (Final Doom, Ultimate Doom, Doom II: HoE and Master Levels), but I would like to configure Steam to always run them with this port.

I just want to change Steam direction. I mean: when I click Doom in my library, instead of launching the default .bat, I want to make Steam launch other file in order to play with ZDoom. Is that possible? I assume that it's just writing the correct line in the game's launch options, but I would like somebody to answer me.

1. If you need to, download a fresh zip of the Zdoom files.

2. Go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common

3. Find the folder of your Doom game(s). Could be "Ultimate Doom" or "Doom 2".

4. Drag ALL files from the ZDoom zip into the Doom game folder.

5. Rename zdoom.exe to dosbox.exe. Just rename the dosbox.exe that's already in the game folder to d.exe or something.

6. Test it by going to Steam and launching it there.

If you want all of your Doom games on Steam to have ZDoom launch when you start the games, then you'll need to put the ZDoom files in all of the corresponding folders. Hope this helps!
