    How to play custom maps?

    Hi, I'm fairly new to the whole source port thing, and I have no idea whatsoever how to get custom maps to work with Doom Legacy. I'm trying to play some of the dwango maps multiplayer and can't figure out how to get it working in Legacy. Can someone help me out here? Thanks.

    How to play custom maps?

    Yeah, I figured out how to do it using the launcher - thanks though. I've started using jDoom anyway, it's so much nicer with the hires textures and the 3d models. Now I need to get it onto my schools computers for some old school deathmatch fun - and we don't have any cd-rom drives. Floppies it is then...
  3. Hey all, I got a Nostromo Speedpad n52 yesterday, it's great. I've made a Doom 3 profile for it and thought you guys might be interested in it. Here it is: http://zygar.co.nz/nostromo/profiles/Doom3.zip picture: http://zygar.co.nz/nostromo/images/doom3.png

    Has anyone else done this?

    I had been recording footage in Doom 3 a a few days ago with Fraps. Now, I never restart my computer, and I forgot Fraps was running (not recording though.) Now, today, I was in Comms transfer in the crawlspace and I saw the skeleton. I took a screenshot, with F12. This was my fraps start recording button also. The game slowed down a tiny bit, but not noticeably cause my computer is l33t, so I didn't notice anything wrong. I encountered the chainsaw dudes, which was quite funny, especially the way they run around like spastics making gorilla noises while trying to cut you into pieces, I had a chainsaw duel with one and then tried to save. "Not enough hard drive space," it said. I was obviously confused so I exited Doom 3. Then I saw 2 new icons on my desktop. They were both avi files. I right click on one and sure enough, it's about 4gb, and the other one is about 1.5gb. I open them up and between them there is 1/2 an hour of footage! I thought it was quite amusing that I managed to use all my free hard drive space without noticing. So has anyone else done this?

    Has anyone else done this?

    I download a LOT of mods for games like UT2004. My UT2k4 directory, infact, is nearly 9gb.

    What the heck is an armor shard?

    Everyone knows that you EAT armor shards and it makes your skin harder.

    I was, that's why I didn't notice that it was happening.

    New Doom info from QuakeCon (exp pack etc)

    An expansion? Awesome.
  9. Once I've learned the map editor, I'm probably gonna remake Dead Simple from Doom 2. Can you imagine how much fun that would be with the new engine? I loved that map on Ultra-Violence. Anyway, what will your first map be?

    Upgrade question: Processor or Video Card?

    Personally, I'd advise getting a gigabyte of Corsair ram, because your vid card is fine, and so is your CPU. However, if you want to get another CPU, grab a 2500+ barton and overclock it to 2ghz. 3200+ speeds!

    Gamestop about to ship game?

    And it turns out that it was a computer error.

    Aussie Doom 3 release date!!!

    Here in New Zealand I'm getting it on the 3rd. So we're getting it before all the Americans! (timezones- the 3rd here is still the 2nd in the US)

    NOT a Intel vs AMD thread

    Go for the AMD, they're better for multimedia and gaming. P4's are better at maths work and video encoding.

    Maybe they shouldn't display concept art?

    I reckon the old Doom 3 logo looks better than the new one...

    You thieving bastard!

    I've preordered it and I'm getting it before alot of the other people here in NZ. gpstore.co.nz always has games a few days before retail stores like EB has them. My friend got UT2004 from them a week before I got my preordered copy.

    First Doom 3 retail edition benchmarks!

    I want to see 1280x1024 benchmarks using a radeon 9600pro. Cause that's what I have, and it'll probably run like crap.

    Carmack and Cloud in-game

  19. Hi there, I'm building a new computer within the next 2 months and so far have picked out these components (prices are in NZD. $1NZ is worth about $0.60USD.) CPU: AMD Athlon 64 3200+ = $528 pp.co.nz Motherboard: MSI K8N Neo Platinum: $264 ascent.co.nz RAM: 2x Corsair 512MB PC3200 DDR (400Mhz) CL2 Memory with Platinum Heat Spreader: $452 pp.co.nz OS: Windows XP Professional = $281 pp.co.nz Monitor: Samsung Syncmaster 172X = $1008 ascent.co.nz Graphics card: Gigabyte GeForce 6800 GT video card, 256MB DDR3, GeForce 6800 GT, 8XAGP, VIVO, DVI: $825 ascent.co.nz PSU: Antec 550w ATX dual fan: $250 ascent.co.nz Optical: Sony CRX320A Retail 52x32x52x 16xDVD Internal IDE: $128 pp.co.nz Case: Antec Super Lanboy ATX case: $223 ascent.co.nz Mouse: Logitech MX510: $108 ascent.co.nz Keyboard: Logitech Elite Keyboard: $96 ascent.co.nz Hard Drives: 2x Western Digital Raptors WD740D 74GB 10000rpm: $886 ascent.co.nz Misc storage: Sony MPF920B, 1.44MB, Internal, Floppy Disk Drive, Black: $20 ascent.co.nz Audio output: Zalman ZM-RS6F Theatre 6 5.1 Channel Surround Sound Headphones: $91 Sound Card: SB Audigy 2 PCI OEM: $156 pp.co.nz Anyway, what do you think? I'm basing this around Doom 3 and running it really well. I'm currently deciding whether to keep the 2 raptors or just have 1, using it for Windows and games, and use another bigger hard drive for files and applications. Dunno how much effect not having the 2 raptors would have on loading times and game performance. EDIT: Oh shit, wrong forum. Can someone please move this to the "Everything else" forum? thanks.

    Wonder if they based anyone off Romero?

    Geforce FX 6800 (ultra)

    Price and speed. I'd say go for the 6800GT, which is faster than the 6800, and only a tiny bit slower than the ultra, at a fraction of the price. Also, the Ultra requires 2 molex connectors for power, IIRC. Go for the GT.

    My future gaming machine- need comments.

    Well, we sold our old house and are nearly finished building our new one, and this computer just comes as part of the house cost. Therefore we pay it off with mortgage I believe. Even if we don't, my parents know that I need a decent computer and are willing to pay that much if some components (aka: screen) don't need upgrading later on.

    This is NZD remember. It works out to about $3327USD.

    Graphics Card Thread

    I'm thinking of putting a GeForce 6800GT in my machine, because it beats the Radeon X800Pro in OpenGL, and stays even with it in Direct3d, and they're both a similar price. (full specs here.)
