DOOM 3 PERFORMANCE BOOST

Found this on a forum...

 

http://www.forumplanet.com/planetdoom/topic.asp?fid=5733&tid=1438663

 

"I dunno if it's just me, but I noticed this trick beefed up my DOOM3 performance by a lot.

 

Anyhoo:

 

In your DOOM 3 directory, find "DoomConfig.cfg" (x:\Program Files\Doom 3\base). Open DoomConfig.cfg in Notepad.

 

Find the line:

 

seta image_cacheMegs "32"

 

I changed 32 to 96.

 

I got a nice boost in performance. I dunno if the tweak worked or not (maybe my machine did something wierd, have no clue), so I'm just seeing if this works for others as well, or if a different setting works better than others."

 

Others report similiar results.

 

New ATI Catalyst Beta Driver Labeled Doom Hotfix

http://www.ati.com/support/infobas...

"These are 4.9 betas, btw. To avoid installing the whole package and just getting the OpenGL driver, open the downloaded .exe file in a program like WinRAR or Winzip, extract atioglxx.dl_ to a temporary folder, expand the file using the command line utility expand.exe like this:

 

expand atioglxx.dl_ atioglxx.dll

 

Make a backup of the atioglxx.dll file in %systemroot%\system32\ and copy the new atioglxx.dll to that folder. That's it."

"WASHINGTON - id Software, the Texas based PC games developer responsible for culture hit series of violent games "Doom" and "Quake" have a new nightmare within a nightmare that is their latest release, "Doom 3".

 

PETA officials have been notified of an "easter egg" gag in id's latest gory and suspsenseful blockbuster "Doom 3" -- an in-game arcade game where the player can toy around punching a turkey and score points. "They think this is just a little, harmless joke, but it's not" says Hardoff Vlemmenkofter, PETA spokesperson - "we adamantly oppose any violence and mistreatment against turkeys amongst all animals - among this turkey hunting and turkey racing. We feel this Doom 3 gag is tasteless and misrepresents turkeys in an unfair and demeaning context."

 

PETA has recently filed a suit against id Software (www.idsoftware.com), hoping to ilk the company of an unknown amount of money for damages. id Software would not comment on the issue at hand. Meanwhile, PETA officials are optimistic of the case. "I think we'll settle this quickly and I am optimistic this will win out in the turkeys favor" remarked Vlemmenkofter.
