    What are the optimal specs to run Doom 3?

    Sorry if this has been asked a lot. I wasn't sure how to search for this. If I run Doom 3 at full screen, I get very slow and choppy gameplay, even with the lowest graphic settings. I have the screen as small as it will go (something like 600 x 800) and it runs pretty well. My specs are: Windows 7 64 bit Pentium Dual CPU E2200 2.2 Ghz NVIDIA GeForce 7100/nForce 630i 3G RAM Is this enough to run the game well, or do I need to get more memory or something?

    What are the optimal specs to run Doom 3?

    Yeah, go easy on me. I don't know a Quadro 6000 from a Powercolor AX5770.

    What are the optimal specs to run Doom 3?

    So you think I should replace my CPU and install a discrete graphics card?

    What are the optimal specs to run Doom 3?

    Thanks for the input. Yes, the one I have is an integrated graphics card. I really don't know much about modern gaming, so a lot of these terms are new to me. Could I get away with simply replacing the graphics card with one of the cards that have been suggested, or do I need to do more? As far as memory space goes, I think I have about 80 gigs free.

    Good Mortal Kombat emulators

    I've heard that there are a few emulators that you can download that allow you to play certain old school games on a PC. Specifically, I'm looking for Mortal Komabat 1 and 3...can anyone recommend any sites?

    Do you like Final Doom?

    Yeah, Plutonia's pretty solid.

    "Faked 3D Bridges"

    So I'm playing Requiem, and I've heard that this megawad introduced concepts like faked 3D bridges. I just played Town of the Dead (Map 13), which apparently has a couple of these. My question is, why are these referred to as "faked 3D" bridges?" Doesn't the original Doom have 3 dimensional architecture, including bridges?

    Do you like Final Doom?

    I like Final Doom. It's probably the one I played the most when I was a kid, next to the original Doom, of course. There definitely is some filler, but I think between both "episodes" there are around 30 really good maps. I just finished playing Plutonia for the first time in years. I forgot how challenging it is at times. I've never been able to beat map 30 with no cheats...I've seen demos, so I know it's possible, but jeez that map is crazy. I remember as a kid, I preferred Evilution, because I was really into the futuristic techbase maps, and it was also something I could beat with no cheat codes. I think I gained more appreciation for Plutonia this time around; very few of the maps are actually bad, and maps like Speed, Compound, Tombstone, and Anti-Christ are just excellent. It's been a while since I played Evilution, but I remember really liking Wormhole, Lunar Mining Project, Ballistyx, Heck, and Nukage Processing.

    Requiem Map 4 Fireworks

    Has anyone else found this map to be very glitchy? I just played it, and I found 3 points where I'll literally sink into the floor and start being attacked by a creature. 1) At the beginning, I entered the building, hit the two switches and entered the room with the lava pit. Directly in front of me were 4 shotgun shells. I stepped onto them and sank into the floor as though i were using noclipping mode, and a Hell Knight (apparently located beneath the floor boards) started scratching me. 2) Adjacent to the lava room, there's a room with a pool of water with a Medkit in the center. I hit a switch causing a circular staircase to rise. I walked up the steps to a sort of balcony, overlooking an outdoor area. I sank into the floor again, and got chaingunned. 3) There's a room made out of black and white stone. Imps are attacking from behind bars. To reach a switch at the top of the room, I have to activate a staircase. I ascend the staircase, move towards the switch and I again sink into the floor to be attacked by Hell Knights. These bugs aren't mentioned in the Doom Wiki. Has anyone else encountered them?

    Requiem Map 4 Fireworks

    I see. Thanks. Maybe I'll try doing that for Daedalus as well, since that WAD was also glitching on me.

    I'm using ZDoom, and I'm not using any cheats.

    Music for Requiem

    So i just downloaded Requiem, and it's playing the Doom 2 music in each map. I see another wad file in the folder that I downloaded called reqmus.wad. I can only assume this contains the music. I have both WADs in the same folder, the same one containing the ZDoom executable. To play, I'm dragging the Requiem wad onto ZDoom.exe and going from there. Is there a step that I'm missing? Sorry if this is a dumb question, and thanks in advance for your help.

    Music for Requiem

    I should have thought of that. Thanks!

    Doom Novels at PC Gamer

    Yeah, the books were weird. Especially the fourth one, which has practically nothing to do with the game at all.

    Do all Megawads end the same?

    I was just wondering if every Doom 2 megawad has the same ending as Doom 2? So far I've only played Plutonia and Evilution, so I guess technically I haven't played any of the free megawads like Requiem or Memento Mori, but I was just curious if any of them deviate from the Icon of Sin/Baphomet ending.
  17. So I'm thinking of checking out some of the megawads available online and I'm trying to narrow down which one I should try first. Don't worry, I'm not asking for a list of recommendations, I've used the search function to research the most popular megawads. I've heard that Memento Mori is designed for co-op gameplay, but can still be completed in single player mode. I was just wondering if you think it's worth checking out even if I don't intend to play it with someone?
  18. Cthulhunicron

    Is Memento Mori worth playing in single player?

    Thanks for the input, everyone. Requiem is another one that I've been thinking of trying. I have Icarus downloaded right now, so I'll probably start with that one. I've played a few levels and I dig the map design, though it seems a bit too easy. I love the part in one of the early maps where you enter a room on the ship, and you can see stars passing by.
  19. I know this has been asked before, and yes, I searched and looked at some old threads and they weren't very helpful. I understand how to drag .WAD over the ZDoom executable to play it. I've done this with Doom2, Evilution, and Plutonia Experiment, plus a couple WADs I downloaded, and the WADs in Maximum Doom. On my Master Levels CD, there is a file marked "Master." In this folder there is a file called DEICE, a Windows Batch file marked INSTALL, a file called MASTER.1, a file called MASTER.2, and a DAT file called MASTER.DAT. I don't see any WAD files. I've tried dragging all these files onto the ZDoom executable and it just takes me to a prompt asking me which WAD I'd like to open, and it gives me a choice between Doom 2, Evilution, or Plutonia. If I select any of those three, it takes me to the selected WAD, but not to any of the Master Levels. Maximum Doom works fine, as it's a folder full of WADs which I can open with ZDoom, except for the Doom 1 wads...for some reason, those won't open. Can someone help? Thanks.

    Daedalus is crashing in ZDoom

    I changed the compatibility mode like you said, and it still didn't work.

    Daedalus is crashing in ZDoom

    I just downloaded Daedalus (awesome so far, btw. Cinematics, level hubs, and actual missions in Doom? who would've thunk it?) but it's freezing on me every time I try to get to the engine room from engineering. I'm not sure if there's multiple ways to get there, but just to be specific, it's the elevator (or transport shaft) in the room with the 4 imps in cages and the revenant in the center of the room. So I kill the 5 of them, and then push the button to activate the transport, but when i enter the transport, the game freezes and all the demons in the next level start leaving trailers as they move around. It's like the Doomguy took some LSD before entering the engine room. Can anyone help? I'm using ZDoom in Windows 7, and I believe I have the newest versions of it and Daedalus.

    How do I play the Master Levels in ZDoom?

    Well, it's not that big of a deal. I can now play the Master Levels, and that's all I really wanted in the first place, so thanks for all your help. If someone is bored and doesn't mind giving me some pointers as to how I set up the in-game menu, that'd be cool, but it's not essential.

    How do I play the Master Levels in ZDoom?

    I downloaded that and I can't figure out how to make it work. I have the ZDLMenu.pk3 file in my WAD folder (I'm not really sure where I'm supposed to put it) but I don't know what to do next. The written instructions in that link weren't very helpful.
  24. Cthulhunicron

    How do I play the Master Levels in ZDoom?

    Correction...some WADs work when I drag them to the ZDoom icon, and some take me to the Entryway.
  25. Cthulhunicron

    How do I play the Master Levels in ZDoom?

    Success! Sort of. So, I have the WADs installed, thanks to DOS BOX. However, the only WAD that the ZDoom exe will let me play is Attack. If I try to load Black Tower or any of the other ones, it takes me to the first map of Doom 2. Is there a way to load each Master Level in the actual game? I have something called ZDLMenu.pk3 downloaded into my ZDoom folder that's supposed to help with the map selecting process but I'm not sure what I'm supposed to do. Sorry about all the noob questions, and thanks for helping me.
