Perfected Doom 3 was started as a simple tweak mod years ago. After realizing that I was still not happy with Doom 3 after making some alterations to weapons and enemy stats I continued to add more to the game. Now Perfected Doom 3 is more then just a tweak mod. It attempts to completely overhaul the entire game with new monsters, rebalanced weapons, rebalanced monster stats, better graphics, new gameplay features and much more. It has been met with great appreciation and acclaim by it's users. This mod will bring many improvements to standard Doom 3.

These kinds of mods are great, improving upon an already good game. I always missed having a secondary fire for my weapons. It felt it a bit lazy/empty to not include that feature in a Doom game, since Doom is one of the pioneers of FPS games and secondary attacks are so common in other FPS games. Thanks a lot!

I've tried to make the mod work, but I simply can't do it. My specs (using the disc version, patched to v. 1.3.1 before applying the mod): Dual Core laptop with 4 Gb RAM, Win 7 64 bit, Radeon HD 6650m. I have updated my drivers from this place, Forums.guru3d.com because all other attempts at updating them lead to every game becoming unplayable. The mod didn't work any better with un-updated drivers.

I can select v. 6.2.2 in the main menu, but I always get stuck on "Initializing menus...". After a while I press ctrl+alt+del to see what's wrong and then I get the "Program has stopped working" error message.

When I transfered the mod's patches I got "This file already exists. Replace?" message and always clicked on "yes" (because the patches should, if anything, contain better data than the files that got replaced). That might be a problem (if it was wrong to replace those files), or not. Not easy to say with computers. See image in my moddb account to see how my Perfected directory looks like and if something is missing/wrong there.

I did actually make a Radeonpro profile of Doom 3 (didn't manage it your way with profiles.xml, couldn't find that file) and unchecked the Catalyst AI box (look at the image in my Moddb account and you'll see), but the mod still doesn't work.

If somehow my mod problem gets fixed, is there a way to make a shortcut directly to the mod. I know about writing something in the target line (for me): "C:\Program Files (x86)\DOOM 3\DOOM3.exe", but I don't know what to add, so that the mod loads directly.

You've installed it properly but your problem lies with Catalyst ai. You have to completely disable it using my method or by using an older set of drivers.

Yes you can load my mod from a shortcut by adding "+set fs_game perfected" to the command line.

Thanks for the quick reply, but I can't find the Profiles.xml file and edit it, so I'm stuck at that part of your method. I tried loading the mod without any Catalyst program installed (like it was when I bought the laptop), but the mod still crashed. I'll see if I can find some way to do fix it anyway.

Well if your using an ATI card and you haven't disabled Catalyst AI then it's definitely on no matter what. It must be disabled. Does Sikkmod work for you? I doubt it would but try it out if you haven't just to make sure it's not mod somehow. Keep searching for other ways to turn that off. Good luck.

I managed to find Profiles.xml after enabling hidden folders/files to become visible. I thought it might be something stupid like that which prevented me from finding Profiles.xml. Lol, the computer does everything it can to keep us with moderate computer skills from finding a solution to their gibberish/non-helping error messages.

I have changed the catalyst AI to "Disable", run MOM and finally got past the loading screen and onto the mod's new main menu screen. BFG (Beautifully F-ing Great) and thanks for all your assistance!

I've got a 1GB HD 5770 (Using the latest drivers) and I'm having the same problem as Barf_Vader. I've disable CatAI using your method and the game still crashes at 'Initializing menus' when using your mod.

I don't know if I can help you, but everytime I tried to install any updated drivers for my HD 6650 (from AMD's *own* site or other sites) it messed up ALL my games, making them all unplayable.

I googled "amd radeon hd 6650m drivers" and came upon this forum, Forums.guru3d.com that suggested I get a modified driver, found here Forums.guru3d.com (click on "mobility card support" there and you'll see that your card is supported as well). After installing that and following VGames instructions (and nothing more) I got it working.

I will be uploading a patch tonight that will replace the 6.2.1 patch and will address the issues with the pumpshotgun that some are having. This will more then likely be my last patch for this mod. I am very busy with a few other projects that I am very excited about and I need to focus on them. If anymore bugs are found then of course I will update with a patch to address them, or if something comes along that must be added to this mod then I'll update it. But more then likely this will be the last patch for PD3. Enjoy.

This is the best complete overhaul I have seen by far. THanks! Makes playing it again like playing a new game. Love, love, love that you gave options for the DoF, bloom, film grain, etc. How did you do the depth of field, tracers, motion blur? Could you do the same with Quake 4?
