Doom this can differ depending on the operating system. The

This section describes environment variables that control Chocolate
These environment variables provide paths to search for Doom
.WAD files when looking for a game IWAD file or a PWAD file
specified with the `-file' option. DOOMWADDIR specifies a
single path in which to look for WAD files, while DOOMWWADPATH
specifies a colon-separated list of paths to search.
When running in PC speaker sound effect mode, this environment
variable specifies a PC speaker driver to use for sound effect
playback. Valid options are "Linux" for the Linux console mode
driver, "BSD" for the NetBSD/OpenBSD PC speaker driver, and
"SDL" for SDL-based emulated PC speaker playback (using the
When using OPL MIDI playback, this environment variable
specifies an OPL backend driver to use. Valid options are "SDL"
for an SDL-based software emulated OPL chip, "Linux" for the
Linux hardware OPL driver, and "OpenBSD" for the OpenBSD/NetBSD
hardware OPL driver.
Generally speaking, a real hardware OPL chip sounds better than
software emulation; however, modern machines do not often
include one. If present, it may still require extra work to set
up and elevated security privileges to access.
