About lights.wad

I'm lost.
You (slayer) said: "All the light definitions are in the DOOMDEFS/HTICDEFS/HEXNDEFS lumps in zdoomgl.wad"

I'm using GZDoom v1.18 and your files:
- lights.wad
- lights.ini
- and there is a 3rd one, not used by me: ecolights.ini

1) I fail to find anymore anything related to those 3 files, nowhere on the net
2) Where to download the very latest lights.ini ? (lights.wad is available on the DRD's download area)
3) No text is explaining the use of those 3 files

Apart the fact that I can't have dynamic lights if I don't use lights.wad, I understand nothing about it and about the ini files.
Can you give me some light about lights? ;-)

What I said is exactly right. lights.wad contains the DOOMDEFS/HTICDEFS/HEXNDEFS from zdoomgl.wad, which is all you need. If you want lights.wad to be automatically loaded, create a folder called 'skins' in your gzdoom folder, and put lights.wad there.

I dunno where you got those ini files from, but they were for the old old ZDoomGL by Kokak, and won't work with GZDoom.

I dunno myself where I got those files...
I'm an old old player of Doom and I guess that I had them with the old old ZdoomGl ?

Anyway, thank you for your answer, and let me tell you how happy I am (like MANY users) with your work.
I never had the opportunity, before today, to thank you for it.
So: merci beaucoup!!! ;)
