Summary0000044: Confusion around setting game mode
DescriptionThere's some possible confusion revolving around setting the game mode. I myself (and apparently others?) thought it was done at the engine path setting on first launch or from Preferences | global | game. It is not; instead it is done through File | Project Settings, and then the path is typed in after selecting custom Doom3 modification.

Don't know if this really needs "fixing", or just documenting, but it seems to come up often enough that maybe some consideration is in order.
TagsNo tags attached.

Just wanted to add another note here. I'm currently messing around with deleting my XML files, so I'm finding this out from scratch again - it's not clear what "engine path" is, either. On first launch, you are asked for an engine path. Which? DR or Doom? As a user, I assume Doom, so I browse to it and hit OK. But, the path DR then suggests is /doom3/darkradiant. So I'm left wondering, does it in fact want the doom path, or the DR path? It must already know its own path, so...

"uh...??" (<--- user confusion)

This should be partly resolved by the new initial preference dialog presented to the user. It has to be evaluated if further explanations/clarifications are necessary.

I might as well assign it to you since you've done all of the relevant work on this issue.

Ok, I'll set it to resolved then and see if further confusion arises.
