UltimateHD v2.0 and Update v2.0.3 has been released...


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

Ultimate HD v2.0.3 Full: Ultimate HD Patch from v2.x to v2.0.3:
Doom3 BFG UltimateHD v2.0.3 Full UltimateHD v2.0.3 Patch


How to install:

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.

This mod seems to automatically make the game more difficult. Is that intentional?

I'm getting black scribbles in the left half of the screen during gameplay. Do you know what I should do to get rid of them?

@egold: i already answered it in the HiDef comments but for integrity here again: if you have a huge dark square, starting from the lower left corner, covering more than 1/3 of your whole screen and using a nvidia card, the latest driver is causing this. If you roll back to v378.78 it's gone. The only way to get rid of this issue with the actual geforce driver (v381.65) is to turn of softshadows. r_useShadowMapping 0
This issue appears with any rbdoom3bfg release.

In UltimateHD you can edit the cfg\*.cfg file that is loaded via autoexec.cfg to take permanently effect.

the question is
How to effectively use your guns in this mods?
Pistol is straight forward as well shotgun machinegun and grenades
Plasma gun is basically a upgrade machinegun

Oh. Most of the time i'm using the chaingun in critical moments when i'm low on health and a lot of enemies are in the area. Just hold the trigger and spray 'em to death ;)
However, i suggest to play the game on veteran difficulty.
