    I finally found it! It looks awesome. The game seems to run ok (5-15fps) at 640x480@16 on my GeForce2 MX400 64MB. Thanks for the heads up!

    It's encoded in divx v4 - nothing special.

    That is totally weird. I still can't play those videos. I'll try on my roommate's computer later. Still seems strange to me though.

    I have all that installed. I watched it on my roommates computer. It looks pretty sweet. I just wish I could either play it on mine, or watch the videos. I have been able to watch anything else, just not this for some stupid reason. Oh well I figured a way to watch it.

    Read up above in this thread Steg - it tells you how to launch a game. If you lauch a game the way you're doing it then yes - it will crash - unless you located the update that makes it not crash ;)

    Well I just found some sort of "patch" for the alpha. It's called Doom III_Multifix, and it fixes various things like the menus, for example you don't have to go to the console to start a new game now you can go to singleplayer and it won't crash, fixes a few performance issues, I now get a total of 14-27fps now, which is quite an improvement from 2fps, if you don't have this patch I recommend you grap it. It's weighted at 2.02 megs and you can grap it either from Kazaa or you can search it on google.

    Just a reminder to everyone to be careful with downloading this file. As it is a highly wanted one by a LOT of people, so I am sure there have been virii made into it. Just notice the file size before you download and run it.

    Don't wanna have to try and fix a virus problem from someone downloading the wrong thing.

    Oh thanks Poertner, I forgot to mention that. It HAS to be 2.02 megs or else its a fake or some sort of virus, like Poertner has mentioned. So if you watch what you're downloading you'll be fine:cool: .
