My new PC and Doom 3

Recommended Posts

The door lag is caused by the on the fly decompression of the data. Unpack all the pk4 files and you will see a big difference. You can also set the cfg to use cache, which it doesn't do by default I think, enabling this will also help lessen the lag. Check this site.

Well, with me, I have a 9800 Pro 128, a 64 3200+ and 1 GB of ram. I've played it on Ultra, and it lagged when ever i opened doors and certain scenes. So i'm baseing it on that.

Sa,e here,excpet 3000+ and 512MB RAM. Medium Setting is flawless. Anything higher than that and the game is still very playable, but lags when opening doors.

 

About Doom3: Jesus christ the atmosphere is tense. I've just gone past the point when the big bull/dog-type thing appears the first time.

There was a severe lack of Pinkys in the game. But that's a good thing since they are bitches...

Indeed they are. I found it useful to go to PlanetDoom and familiarize myself with other demons.
