Doom 2 Style Weapons and Sounds v1.1
by Killatomate

Description:
Have you ever wondered what it would be like if Doom3 had Doom2 weapons and sounds? Play the original Doom3/RoE campaign (or any custom map) with Doom2 style weapons and sounds. No more reloading. No more hissing Imps. No stamina problems. Only fast paced action and brutal death screams. Ready your weapons and make your enemies scream in pain! All weapons, scripts and sounds have been changed. Many monster sounds have been replaced with Doom2 sounds (or similar custom sounds). AI scripts have been reworked to make enemies scream in pain when injured. Even door sounds have been changed. A lot of time has been spent on balancing to make sure difficulty level remains the same despite high rate of fire and the absence of weapon reloading.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Compatibility:

This mod requires the original Doom 3. The BFG Edition cannot be modded.
This mod works fine with widescreen resolution and HD textures.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Enabling widescreen Resolution in Doom 3:

After patching your Doom 3 installation to version 1.31 you can use custom resolutions.
For 1920x1080 widescreen resolution open the "DoomConfig.cfg" file with notepad and change the following variables:

seta r_customHeight "1080"
seta r_customWidth "1920"
seta r_mode "-1"

then add this line to your config:
seta r_aspectRatio "1"

Pretty hilarious, but that will wreck the dark and horror feel of Doom 3 so I'll pass.

i did something similar but with doom64 sounds, and i added doom64 music to stock maps, makes it WAY more creepy imo, that music suits the doom3 atmos very well :p

i thought about replacing music but then didnt notice any music in Doom 3 (except in the main menu). Since there is no music volume slider in the options and players might prefer creepy atmosphere over heavy metal music i ended up not adding any music.
