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.

Would it be possible to make a compatibility with the Alpha Shotgun mod?

Great mod! But one thing I think doesn't fit pretty well, is the fact that the minigun, being a .30 cal weapon, needs so many bullets to take down even the lesser enemies, like zombies. Is it posible to buff its damage, and have a lower mag size and ammo pool count to compensate for the damage?

I'm running into an issue with this mod that has something to do with texture quality. Some of the textures are noticeably blurry for some reason. I did some googling and determined that it might have something to do with an option called LOD, but there's a problem.

I can't find this option in the graphics settings! Are these blurry textures just something on my end? Is there not supposed to be an LOD option? Any help that could be provided would be awesome.

Sadly there are still tons of lowres wall and object textures in the game, that have never been replaced by modders since 2004. I guess you mean one of them. So i don't think it's an issue on your side.

Doesn't load Erebus 3 level from RoE for some reason. I just get kicked to the main menu with opened console. Any suggestions?

But overall this mod gave me an opportunity to remember old times of shooting demons, and in HD, and with reworked weapons and sound. Great work guys, couldn't ask for more.

Hmm, try to delete the generated collition data. Go to ..\@UltimateHD\generated and remove the whole "collision" directory.
Have you finished the main game without trouble before you ran into that issue?

Yes, I finished main game without trouble, then started RoE and ran into that issue.
I've already reinstalled Doom 3 and UltimateHD completely and it works like a charm, but nevertheless thank you for the solution.

Here's some more gameplay, if it's still of any use for the author :) I use the latest version of the mod.

I would like to say that the shotgun here is marvelous (my favorite weapon)! Though I kinda miss the vanilla pistol with wooden grip and the greenish vanilla SMG (texturewise only). Also the chaingun's damage is a bit too low to my taste, it feels like it's firing pistol bullets. Projectile spreading is good for balancing high damage and it's there (in your mod) already.
But don't listen to me, this mod is awesome! The sounds are perfect!
Thank you very much for your work!
