UltimateHD v2.1 has been released...


This modification works only with the BFG Edition of Doom 3, published by Bethesda, available on Steam!





Doom3 BFG UltimateHD v2.1 Full40x40 blankChangelog


How to install:

!!! If you've downloaded the FULL Package, always remove any previous Installation of UltimateHD first !!!

Unzip the whole 7z-Package to your "DOOM3 BFG Edition" main directory
(usually at ..\Steam\steamapps\common\DOOM 3 BFG Edition)

If everything's gone right there should be a "@UltimateHD" directory in your main directory
( => ..\Steam\steamapps\common\DOOM 3 BFG Edition\@UltimateHD)


How to start the Mod:

run "Doom3 BFG UltimateHD.exe" (This starts RBDoom3BFG.exe with the right parameter)

If you don't want to use the included EXE you can also create a shortcut of "RBDoom3BFG.exe" with the following parameter +set fs_resourceLoadPriority 0 +set fs_game @UltimateHD
Should look like this => "..\RBDoom3BFG.exe +set fs_resourceLoadPriority 0 +set fs_game @UltimateHD"

For further Informations please read the UltimateHD Readme


Important Side Note!

This mod uses a dedicated mod-directory called "@UltimateHD" located in your main "DOOM3 BFG Edition" directory. It doesn't mess around with the default "base" directory and it's files.

This Mod will cause huge loading times between levels and intros due to the "generated" ressources process; depending of your system configuration it could take minutes and may look like the game crashed, but it isn't. It will only occur once at the very first start of a new map.

If you already modified your "base" directory, i recommend to make a clean install of Doom3 BFG before you install this mod, because it might have conflicts with modified "base" files.

Is it possible to install only the Weapons Pak without other things?

Hi, I was wondering if there was someone having the same problem I'm having and if there's a solution.
I'm getting installation errors no matter where I download this from. I follow the instructions carefully and every time, a huge chunk of textures will just not seem to install. And no matter where I download it from, it always different ones. Please if someone has a solution to this, please tell me, because I really want to play this mod.

What app are you using to extract the package? Try 7-Zip if that's not already the case (http://www.7-zip.org/)

I'm running this with HDR + soft shadows disabled for performance (have an AMD 270x), and while it generally looks and plays great, one issue is that the characters sometimes have flat shaded polygons popping in and out on their faces when moving around a light source:

Is this an artifact of having disabled HDR/Soft shadows? I don't get this with the Hi-Def mod with both HDR/Soft shadows disabled as well though, although I greatly prefer your mod. Note this is on a clean install of Doom3 as well.

Sorry not sure about this, could be an engine or cvar problem. If it doesn't happen with Hi Def you could replace the RBDoom3BFG.exe with the one in his mod (the newest one should be in one of his patches). I also had a lot of shadow glitches without HDR but those glitches changed their behaviour with every new gfx driver release. ;)

Turns out it's the HalfLambertLighting unfortunately. Unless HDR is on with it enabled I'll get the visible polygons, the cfg I was using for the hi-def mod for performance didn't have it turned on which is why they didn't show up when using it.

Ah well will just live with it until I upgrade and can play with HDR+Shadows at 60fps.

Thanks for the reply. Knowing AMD's GL drivers who knows, albeit I am on the latest beta so perhaps I'll revert back to the WHQL ver. I'll also give the latest RBDoom3BFG.exe a test and report back if any changes.
