so heres a doom launcher
download : {LINK REMOVED}

put the exe file in your doom folder where doomx64.exe is,

the launch just looks like https://s24.postimg.org/r9ojqbz1x/doom_launcher_1_1.png

and has 3 buttons for gamemode, also

sets r_windowHeight/r_windowWidth to half of your current desktop resolution and sets r_refreshRate to current desktop refresh rate

which fixes alt+enter screen flickering

has a little folder button under the vulkan to open your saved games folder too

if you have a empty box show up on your scree, then you need to open the steam client, because its a bug in steam for you to authorize the commandline, which is`nt a big problem, you can just add the launcher as a external game

Nice. In another thread I was hoping a bot launcher. Pick map, number of bots, gametype, launch.

upto you
I don't think a guide is necessary. Don't you think it's selfexplenatory?

I don't think people would notice it, So a Guide might help finding the tool.

This looks awesome, no need to set parameters and launch quickly that what players want. It make skip too long and boring bethesda icon video too?

you can make a execConfig.cfg in your saved games folder [] to add your own cvars instead of using the launch options, but there arn't many cvars left most people need to change, probably just mouse and joypad cvars, bind your own keys

back from the banned...
Why is this utility adding a bunch of launch options to doom?

because i don't care for n00bz

it gets your desktop refresh rate for current resolution and sets the r_refresh cvar
it gets your current desktop resolution size, and sets the window sizes for when you use alt+tab or alt+enter an is always current desktop resolution / 50

having both set should stop the flickering when you go from windowed to fullscreen mode

its sets fullscreen mode which also stops flickering, it skips intro videos,

in executes a config to include to bind your own keys and mouse settings

and it also sets the render api cvar for openGL or vulkan so people don't end up with renderAPI -1

My resolution is 1920 X 1080 and I run Doom full screen. This launcher lowers my resolution. I would like the option of using your launch options or not. Some of what you have I already have.

no, fullscreen you have whatever resolution you set in the main video options in game

the r_window cvars are for when you use alt+enter to switch to windowed mode, which then you will have a window half the size of your desktop resolution. amd press a;t+emter to back back into fullscreen mode with the ingame video setting and probably without any screen flickering

its keeping it real, if you get that skype call and want to watch doom without that spectator mode, or whenever a SDK is released

I see. Thanks for the explanation. I will push the button tonight.
