Final Doom won't start
I have just bought the final doom from steam but it does not work.
When I run tghe game (every of the four options) itstarts my dosbox and gets stuck with only the background of the titlescreen on screen. Sometimes a little music starts but I can't do anything.
Can somebody help me/has the same issue?
I'am playing on windows 8.

Get yourself GZdoom, or zandronum, or another source port.

dosbox is utter ♥♥♥♥, and source ports work tons better, and allow mods like brutal doom

Did you try hitting escape?

I have the same problem. Hitting ESC does nothing :(
I'm on Win 8.1. I guess this is part of the problem. Would be nice if anyone could help :)

Yea I get the same thing. I extracted zdoom and it can't find the IWAD. It seems like it only looks for doom.wad, doom2.wad and heretic.wad.

Just for information : windows 7 x64 no probleme and play on my screen 2560x1080.
(on win8.1 go to exe and select mode compatibility 7 or xp)

Unfortunately it doesn't work in comp. mode either.
I just downloaded GZdoom. Now the games run just fine :)

Go here, it works for Final Doom. just look for the Plutonia config files istead of the ones in this.
