Hi,

Please can anyone help? I'm trying to get Doom CE to play on my HP Jornada 680. I have installed the exe file and the wad file in the same directory and get the error "'HPC Doom' is not a valid Windows CE application". I have tried many versions of the files available on the web, but always get the same error message.

I have also tried other games for Windows CE 2.11 and always get the same message. Do I need any other software or do I have to go into some kind of DOS mode to run it (I can't find any dos mode) like the old Win3.1?

Any help appreciated - thank you
Pete

Hi,
From what you described the problem could be that the doom.exe is the desktop version or it needs to be executed on the PC to extract the files which have to be transferred to the Jornada.

Also, beyond the doom.exe file you will need the .WAD file for the version of Doom you are playing.

Hi Chris, thanks for replying. I downloaded a different wad file and it still didn't work. I then put the files in the root directory of the memory card (rather than a sub directory) and hey it works.

Thanks very much for your help.

This is a quirk of DoomCE. There's been some discussion of this over on HPC:Factor (see the link below for the site).
