Rename the EXE. At least, for those who haven't bought it through Steam, but most likely most did. Though renaming the EXE (into anything, it can be from DOOM3.EXE to DOOM 3.EXE, BOOM3.EXE, or anything else, just not doom3.EXE.) on a Steam version will most likely not work.

It will work, also there's no need for a separate exe, just another shortcut to the desktop with this command on .

I believe you read my comment wrong, I said RENAME the EXE. I never said to created another one. But I guess this method you have with the shortcut is good as well.

I didn't say your method won't work, i just suggested an easier method .

But you said there's no need for a separate EXE, which I never mentioned another but the DOOM 3 EXE. I think you read the instructions wrong, but other than that, your method's probably easier.

For Steam version, you can add launch options.

1. go to "Library"
2. right-click in the game on game list
3. click on "Properties" in the right-click menu
4. go to "General" tab
5. click on "Set Launch Options"
6. add "+set fs_game sikkmod"
7. click "Ok" and "Close"

Game will start with the mod from Steam menu/shortcut

However this is going to force the game to directly start with the mod loaded preventing players from playing the default game, So they just need to follow the informations given above .

@ An Unknown Player

Hey mate, I am trying to get SIKKmod working with Quake 4 (CD Version 1.4.2).

The first method I can do, and it starts with SIKKmod but getting wierd shadow issues. (Dark, blocky shadows which flicker alot).

Method 2 produces a crash, method 3 I presume is doom 3 only?

I'm running an R9 390 - any advice would be appreciated!

I suppose the mod isn't designed to work for Quake 4 (unless you got it from here : Moddb.com ) , i'm not sure , i have not yet tested , i'll let you know once i figure out the way to do it .

Steam User here, STILL can't get this to work. Followed all instructions to a T, including the ones specifically for Steam users. The graphics are still glitching out.
