This is a bit of a gotcha for new users. Once you try to join a server, you're prompted to set a WADseeker path. OK, you do that. You download the file. But you still can't join the server -- Doomseeker prompts to download the file again, like nothing happened.

The "proper" solution is to to Options/File paths and enter the path there, too. But that's not completely obvious and a little unnecessary (you already told Doomseeker where PWADs go). Tweaking Doomseeker to include the Wadseeker download folder would smooth this over gotcha and make Doomseeker faster to set up, since you only need to choose one folder.

This still leaves the question of IWADs. Checking the skulltag/doomseeker folder is a good start, as it's what Skulltag does, and many people c+p IWADs there. An even nicer version would be to open skulltag.ini and see what's under [IWADSearch.Directories] and look there, too.
