The Classic Doom 3 modification is a remake of the original Doom game, by id Software. The main emphasis is that of bringing the older game up to date in a modern graphics engine. The project makes use of all of Doom 3's advanced graphical features while retaining the feel and gameplay of the original game. The project will only cover the shareware levels due to many reasons that include the following : - We are bored of converting over peoples stuff and want to create something of our own. - The mod started off as a fun way to learn how to mod for Doom 3, and we all feel we have learnt what we need to make our own project. - A more minor reason is the legalities of remaking anything past the freely available shareware episode. Our latest build is version 1.3.1 which is the final version that we plan to release. This version is numbered 1.3.1 to reflect the fact that it has been tested to work with Doom 3 patch release 1.3.1, and thus works both with Doom 3 on steam and windows vista..

Flaming Sheep Software recently released version 0.56 of their modification "Classic Doom 3" for the Doom 3 graphics engine. If you haven’t played this mod yet, the main emphasis is on bringing the original game bang up to date making use of all the advanced features that the latest offering from id Software provides.

Just over the halfway mark, the team have managed to re-create the first five levels from the shareware episode and aim to have the full shareware episode complete for their next, and final release. Every level has re-recorded music that has been created with real, live instruments for a full-on audio and graphical assault on the senses.

The screenshot accompanying this news post is an image from the level E1M2 that is a new addition to the project for the release of 0.56. Two other levels are also added extra's that brings the total level count to 6 so far. Due to the number of maps, the mod will take the average player around 45 minutes to play through completely.

Please post any comments or suggestions in the relevant areas of the official Classic Doom 3 forums located at:

If you haven’t tried the project out already, or, if you have played an older version, try the latest release now to see how far the project has come since the previous outing 6 months ago!

Well the only thing I did not like was the music...though it was cool and appropriate at times, its constant playing seriously gave me a headache and took away from some parts that could have been 'scary'. Other than that it is a great remake!

By the time we have the final release out there will be the ability to change the music volume in the menu system. At the moment we are still working on the smaller features like this so hopefully by the time we have our next release, all of these niceties will be added.

Glad to hear you enjoy the mod and hope you keep tracking us until we have finished in the next few months.
