Doom 31.3.1

24 May 2020

First-person shooter action game.

Overview

A massive demonic invasion has overwhelmed the Union Aerospace Corporation's (UAC) Mars Research Facility, leaving only chaos and horror in its wake. As one of only a few survivors, you must fight your way to hell and back against a horde of evil monsters.

The ruins of an ancient Martian civilization have unlocked the secrets to teleportation, and the UAC will stop at nothing to harness this world-altering technology. As part of a marine detachment sent to protect the facility, your duty seemed simple enough until the invasion. Now, in an epic clash against pure evil you must fight to understand who is with you, who is against you, and what must be done to stop this nightmare from reaching Earth. DOOM 3 draws you into one of the most frightening and gripping 3D gaming experience ever created.

Features:
  • A classic shooter and a staple for fans of the genre.
  • Real-world physics and killer AI
  • Incredibly scary. Don’t believe us? Turn off the lights and treat yourself to a couple of hours of gameplay by yourself!
  • Battle in team or Deathmatch-based multiplayer modes

"3" stars for Features- Hey, it's Doom! "5" everything else! MacPro Xeon 2.66GHz Quad-Core 3GB RAM/Radeon HD 4870/OS X 10.6 running at max resolution of my monitor with all options on: 1680x1050-runs almost TOO FAST! Way better than what I had to do with the cfg file to get it to run on my old MDD G4 1GHz Radeon 9800 Pro!

I'm running Doom 3 on a G5 Quad with 2,5 Gigs of memory and the maximum reasonable resolution with all features set on is 800 x 600, but hey, it rocks anyway and it looks pretty cool. There's no game with such dense atmosphere. Sure, it's very demanding for hardware, but that's progress, right?

Just thought I would note to MacUpdate staff that this IS a Universal Binary as per Aspyr's notes: 1.3 Rev A Update Changes: - This Patch includes a Universal Binary which allows operation on the new Intel Macintosh. - Improved performance on PowerPC Macs with ATi graphics cards - The minimum supported operating system is now OS 10.3.9 - OpenAL will not function in OS 10.3.9. It will disable itself if you try enabling it.

Wooooohooooo. This game is a stunner, bloody frightening, but awesome. Aspyr does a perfect conversion and runs like a gem of my 1st gen iMac G5. No crashes, no problems (except the odd nightmare) wow

I cannot fault Doom3 much, but i am a G5 user so maybe this is why ;) But d3 is a great game and there's a ton of mods out there to make it even better - check out GTX people. (google it!) Doom3 really needs a G5 Mac and nothing less.. sorry but that's progress and Mac Doom3 will never run quite as well as it should because it's a PORT of another platforms code. So there's always some performance lost bcos it's a PORT. Oh and btw - unpacking the pk4 isn't a good idea. There's no speed improvement and it'll all just take up loads of hdd space! Here's a good link for speed improvements: http://ucguides.savagehelp.com/Doom3/FPSVisuals.htm For console: look inside the base folder which is inside Doom3 which is inside Applications Support. Create a text file called "autoexec.cfg" and have this inside it: com_allowConsole "1" Want more mods for doom3 to extend it's life. google AppleCrypt ;) Overall, doom3 is demanding but worth it. Great gfx and sfx but the first few levels are pretty samey and dull. It gets better later on and i love the Delta levels, there's some great action here. Scary! Buy it

I agree with Jas... Do they actually want people to be able to buy and run this game? Mac owners have always hung onto their machines and (like me), upgrade them until they absolutely die. I've upgraded my processor (Powerlogix 1.4 GHZ Dual), got a pretty good video card (ATI 9000), got lots of RAM (1.5 GB), and this game is STILL a little jerky. No, of course I didn't do the upgrades specifically to run this game, but this is a pretty fast machine! Yea, graphics are cool, but making a game that will run on the machines of your fan-base seems to make some sense to me. Pretty disappointed in this. On the other hand, it does have a good look, but I don't have an extra $3000 lying around to buy a G5!

How to speed up doom 3 on the macintosh platform (this may also work on other platforms but I have no way of testing it) The following .pk4 files in the folder doom 3/base can be decompressed with stuffit expander which speeds up loading of levels and access of individual files during game-play. If an update comes out and you have uncompressed the .pk4 files, you will need to delete the Doom 3 folder and recopy it from the original installation disc, before you install the update or it wont be installed properly, then proceed to uncompressing the files again. pak000.pk4 * pak001.pk4 becomes dds pak002.pk4 becomes models pak003.pk4 becomes sound pak004.pk4 becomes textures pak005.pk4 becomes pak005.pk4 folder~^ pak006.pk4 ~* pak007.pk4 becomes pak007.pk4 folder~^ game00.pk4 becomes game00.pk4 folder ^ game01.pk4 becomes game01.pk4 folder ^ game02.pk4 becomes game02.pk4 folder ^ game03.pk4 becomes game03.pk4 folder~^ ~ 1.3 update file * cannot be uncompressed ^ remove word folder Submitted by Zachary Tiery Stuart

I just got a reply from the Aspyr support: Hello Jeron, While the retail full version of Doom 3 does support third party sound cards, the demo does not. To get your sound working, you will have to disable your sound card and use the built-in audio. Sorry for the inconvenience. Thanks for your interest in Doom 3 and have a great day! ------ Aspyr Support Team

Anybody know how / if the demo or fullgame will support widescreen? Kind of a waste to play "full screen" when its not on my 20 in Apple display. Runs OK with HQ settings at 1024 x 768 on my 1.6 G5 PowerMac and an ATi 9800 Special Edition. Still, I think I would rather pick it up for Xbox and play on the 60in projection screen TV in the living room.

I was unable to mount the disk image file after downloading the demo. Anyone else have a similar problem? Disk Images failed to mount. Reason: not recognized Doom3MacDemo.dmg file (345282412 bytes)

Be warned! This game requires a helluva system to be even playable. I have a Power Mac G4 MDD, dual 1Ghz, 1.5GB RAM with a Radeon 9800 Pro. I have messed with all the settings to try and get good preformance, but it's barely even playable. As soon as an enemy attacks you, the game becomes pretty choppy. Very frustrating. It's even a little choppy on my dual 2.5Ghz G5! That's partially because of the stock Radeon 9000.

Good update for, pretty much, one reason: vid_restart. For some reason, when I launched Doom 3, the Finder's pointer would stay stuck smack in the middle of the screen- from the point the opening video is played, in game, until I quite the program entirely. Enabling the terminal and using vid_restart now not only doesn't crash Doom 3 (forcing me to hard reboot!) but it gets rid of the dang pointer! Yay.

What happened to computer gaming ?Companies spend all this time and money making a game that requires the latest hardware to run,when they should be focusing on making a good game.This is not a good game, especially for mac users.Who wants a cpu hogging,ram hoggin game like this?I would much rather play quake 3,which runs great on even on a 5 year old machine.its always the simple games that are the best,like super mario world for super nintendo.They are the best because they are good games.Who cares about good graphics anyways?Its not the graphics that make a game fun.

top notch gfx and audio. Check out filefront or planetdoom.com for great mods like GreenTech and new sp-maps like Church Of Ruins. Lengthens the game somewhat. 10/10 !!

Wow, Having played the original and doom 2 a while ago on my old P.C. I'd forgotten how good the series was. BUT not a patch on Doom 3 everything about the game is class, graphics and gameplay are in a league of thier own. The game is dark and truly worrying, I found myself jumping at serval points in the game, nearly all of which takes place in little or no light meaning the torch you carry is invaluble and also somewhat of a hinderance as you can't use it while involved in a fight. The only possbile minus to a rake of plus' is I found the puzzle solving element a bit straight forward, but don't let that put you off. Weapons are brillant and using the shotgun to distroy the spiders is most enjoyable. All in all the game will be hard to match on the Mac. Maybe the appearence of Half-Life 2 will change my mind, but for the moment there is NO better game than Doom 3. Enjoy.

This is a great game. I am also running the game on a 1Ghz MDD G4 with a Radeon9600Pro and 1.5GB RAM and get 23fps in TimeDemo with 800x600 med quality and 2x FSAA. I get the same frame rate at 1280x1024, low quality and no FSAA (+/-1-2fps), but I like the look of it at med quality and 800x600. In fact I got NO performance increase when I turned FSAA off at 800x600. If you got playeable frame rates in Halo then you will get same performance in Doom3. Halo for me slowed during heavy fights and so does Doom3 but it is still verty playable. Those of us with a L3 cache rejoice! as it can increase frame rates by 15-30%. Get the game and enjoy.

I JUST got this game today! I'm very impressed that it works so smoothly with my setup: MDD G4 1GHz/10.3.8/Radeon9800Pro/1GB RAM yes, of course it has slight hiccups here n there, but nothing intolerable- I'm AMAZED at how good it looks and how playable it remains! I tweaked the CFG file to utilize cache and raised the alloted memory for that to 32MB (from 20) and disabled shadows (although, oddly enough, the game still retains the shadow effects- just not as intense... and barely noticeable- still scared me more than a couple of times!). You've GOT to play this in the dark! :D Considering I didn't even expect it to run... I can't even express how impressed I am with the performance- Oh yeah, the game itself is eerily fun! Wear a diaper... lol

checkout IMG as there are optimization tips in the forums. Using a dual 2ghz G5 and i now get 46fps in medium and 51 in low. (both at 1280x1024). TURN OFF SHADOWS and any FSAA. Check out the Classic Doom3 total conversion!!!!!!!

Well, its a huge game, millions of lines code, latest inventions on gfx industry. I mean, we need a demo to test it. I think you can give it back in USA saying "it didn'T work" to store but what about overseas? I can't say anything without demo and also of course, I won't buy it that way. If they didn't optimize for G5, Altivec etc. its a big shame.

Optimize optimize optimize ! ! ! Doom 3 looks very sexy but even on my G5 2GHz MP with 1 GB RAM the game is putting a lot of pressure on the hardware. The makers obviously wanted to create a new engine which they would like to sell and which will live for the next few years. So it might take a couple of years before we really know what kind of PC/Mac will be able to handle it. My advice: Buy the XBox + Doom 3

Very unique and impressive game on sounds, atmosphere and graphics. However, it is not yet really "optimized" for Macs, even the top high end G5 with the latest Apple OEM high end ATI or NVidia video card. My suggestion: rent an XBox with the game. :)
