Sometimes a player just wants to play episode 1 of the first Doom game without actually playing episode 1 of the first Doom game, and to answer this tendency there's Classic Doom 3 -- a total conversion mod that recreates the entirety of the classic Knee Deep in the Dead experience with Doom 3's engine and graphics.
Without a doubt, the absolute apex of mods for Doom 3 is the aptly titled \"Shrek mod for doom 3\" (a.k.a. the Sherk mod). What does the Shrek mod do It's simple: Shrek in Doom. The mod features an enhanced main menu, easily improving on the original Doom title screen by slapping more Shrek on it, as well as a new weapon: Shrek's frying pan.
Hello,First time modding Doom 3 here, just tried doom 3 open coop and going to play that at my next LAN partyI came here for the flashlight duct tape mod, got doom-3-weapon-mod/addons/flashlight-mods
Can anyone help with a weird issue i am having with this mod. I followed all the instructions to get it to work on an ATI graphics card, but i have this weird issue where the FOV is totally zoomed in to make the game unplayable and fov is giving me motion sickness.
Might be late help but and i dunno if it's gonna help you or not but i remember that what helped me the most was editing cachemegs in cfg file. i got some really nice fps boost. here is thread how to do it : -boost-doom3-fpsperformance/
Installing with the self-extracting installerDownload the file 'Doom3BFGVR_Fully_Possessed_Alpha020_Installer.exe' and execute.By default, the installer will look to install the mod in the default app directory in your Steam library on drive C. If your Steam library is in a different location, or you have installed doom 3 someplace else, browse to the location of your Doom 3 BFG installation. IMPORTANT If you browse to select a directory to install the mod, the installer will append 'Doom 3 BFG edition' to the install path. REMOVE THIS from the install path, so that only the full name of your Doom 3 BFG directory is displayed. Failure to do this will result in the mod files being installed in the wrong directory. Once installed, you should see a folder named 'Fully Possessed' inside your main Doom 3 directory along with some support files and the Doom3BFGVR.exe. Launch this .exe to play.
Perfected Doom 3 is more then just a tweak mod. It attempts to completely overhaul the entire game with new monsters, rebalanced weapons, rebalanced monster stats, better graphics, new gameplay features and much more. It has been met with great appreciation and acclaim by it's users. This mod will bring many improvements to standard Doom 3 and it's Resurrection of Evil expansion.
Can you believe it has been 12 years since Doom 3 was released Yeah. Well, Clear_strelok has created Doom 3: Redux, which overhauls the graphics from Doom 3, and introduces an FOV slider, and restores cut content.
Doom 3: Redux includes new graphics settings which can be adjusted, including different levels of texture quality, an FOV slider, different types of anti-aliasing methods, modern resolutions, and more. You can download Doom 3: Redux right here.

The Doom series is known for its busy modding scene, so it's appropriate that a Doom mod may have just shown us the way to get big budget first-person shooters to work on virtual reality headsets. Using the graphically enhanced \"BFG\" version of 2004's Doom 3, the mod from \"Codes4Fun\" skillfully ports to game to the HTC Vive, generally making it look as though it was designed for the platform all along. Swedish YouTuber SweViver recently posted a video showing off his first spin with it, and so much of it flies in the face of what's normally considered the \"best\" way to make a first-person virtual reality game. Gone, for instance, is the need to move around by \"teleporting\" to spots, which disappointed me during my time with Bethesda's virtual reality version of Fallout 4 at this year's E3. Instead, SweViver walks and runs about naturally using only the Vive controller's touchpad, and he says multiple times that the \"perfect\" 90 frames per second keeps him from suffering motion sickness. Beyond that, the video shows him jumping and using the mod's impressive hand-tracking to handle his gun and flashlight separately as they float before him in place of the controllers in his hands. At one point, he even whips out virtual fists that let him pummel things with the controllers' left and right triggers. \"This is probably the first AAA game that actually works on the Vive,\" he says, and watching him, I can't help but think his demo shows that virtual reality still has plenty of life and promise to it despite this year's disappointments. It's astounding to see how well it works, and it's likely what Oculus had in mind when they announced Doom 3 as a bundled game during the 2012 Kickstarter for the Rift. We've seen other great ports before, as in the case of 2002's Metroid Prime for Dolphin VR, but Doom 3's fluid weapon handling, interactivity, and general creepiness put it in a different class entirely. If you want to try it out for yourself, a Redditor named AerowynX put together a handy page explaining the relatively painless process. You'll even find a couple of graphics enhancement mods. On the off-chance that the thread disappears, here's a direct link to the Github download site.
At the QuakeCon 2007, John Carmack, the lead graphics engine developer at id, said to LinuxGames:\"I mean, I won't commit to a date, but the Doom 3 stuff will be open source\". And like its predecessors, John Carmack has said that id Tech 4 will be released as open-source.
The original requirement of id Tech 4 was that it needed a high-end graphics processing unit (GPU) with fully programmable vertex and pixel shaders, such as the Nvidia GeForce 3 or ATI Radeon 8500, with at least 64 MB of VRAM. By E3 2002, the recommended GPU was \"100% DirectX 9.0b compatible\", such as the Radeon 9700 with 128 MB of VRAM. While the Radeon 9700's DirectX 9.0 features are not necessary to render the game, its advanced architecture, 256-bit memory bus, and efficiency were needed to run Doom 3 at high detail and playable speed. The \"Ultra\" graphics mode included in Doom 3 would not even run on high end graphics cards in 2004 as the engine required at least 512 MB of video memory to display properly and at playable speeds.
id Tech 4 resulted in the obsolescence of DirectX 7 graphics chips such as the widespread GeForce 2 and Radeon 7200, as well as older chipsets such as RIVA TNT2 and Rage 128, and software rendering (with an integrated Intel GMA). Until the advent of id Tech 4, a powerful CPU was able to somewhat compensate for an older video card. While John Carmack initially warned gamers not to purchase the GeForce 4 MX (which casual consumers often confused with the DirectX 8 capable GeForce 4 Ti, though it was at best an improved GeForce 2), its somewhat widespread adoption compelled id Software to add it to the list of supported cards. There have been cases of enthusiasts forcing Doom 3 to run on unsupported graphics chips, such as the long obsolete Voodoo 2, but these are unable to render the per-pixel lighting and bump mapping.
Doom 3 was originally released in 2004, but an updated version entitled Doom 3: BFG Edition launched in 2012 including enhanced graphics and sound, as well as support for 3D displays. Four years later and a developer by the name of Codes4Fun has ported the game for use with the HTC Vive(Opens in a new window), meaning it can be played in VR.
The rest of us decided to try playing the game on our current systems before seriously considering upgrade possibilities. If you're part of this group, you probably discovered that the game is indeed playable on PCs that meet the minimum 1.5GHz CPU and GeForce 3 graphics card system requirements, but you also probably discovered that an upgrade would be necessary to get a glimpse of frame rates above 30 frames per second at resolutions higher than 640x480.
The real trouble begins when it's time to figure out how to upgrade, since several system components have an effect on game performance--namely the graphics card, CPU, and system memory. Having a fast CPU will allow you to hit higher frame rates but only if your graphics card is fast enough to keep up. The opposite is also true. A powerful graphics card won't perform like one when it's paired with a slow CPU. However, don't forget about the system memory either, because not having enough can effectively hamstring game performance, no matter what type of CPU or graphics card you have.
The primary focus of this guide will be graphics cards and basic Doom 3 video settings, but we also examine CPU scaling and memory configurations to identify performance bottlenecks that can prevent a system from reaching its full potential.
We used an Athlon 64 3000+ CPU for our video card testing, because the processor is fast enough to show us the performance differences between all of our graphics cards, yet it's affordable enough to be a realistic upgrade option for readers on a budget.
We see that the frame rate should top out at 70 to 75 frames per second if the graphics cards aren't being challenged. For these cards, the 640x480 test is still more of a CPU benchmark, since we're seeing roughly the same frame rate across a wide range of cards. 153554b96e
