    Oh, that's gonna look just sweet on a machine with a better graphics card.

    Like, of course, we will all be buying when this comes out.

    You remember Quake II? Everyone went out to get new hardware (first gen graphics accelerators) just to play it.

    But hey, it was worth it.

    Sorry - I don't remember the file info - I deleted it long ago and am now waiting for the game to go on sale... :( Sorry I can't help you out with this, though the whole exe thing sounded kinda scary if I understood what I think you were trying to say.

    hey Ollie30001

    yea u downloaded the right file.actually the file is not an exe.there are two versions of the alpha on kazaa .one is named doom_iii.rar and the other is named sumthing like doom3.e3-demo-alpha-leak.rar .so once u download the file open it up with winRAR (this is a program) get it from

    http://www.rarlab.com/download.htm

    using this program extract the file u downloaded to any new directory.then go run the game.i recommend u download a patch for doom 3 from kazaa.just search for "doom patch" and ull get it.apply the patch.then ur ready to go.
    for more help on how to run the game go to http://www.geocities.com/ladoom3helpla/config.htm

    Slow!

    My Doom III is only running at 3-5 fps, peaking at 7 occasionally on my laptop.

    I've got:

    2.2Ghz mobile M processor
    512MB laptop RAM
    40gig HD which is about 20gigs full

    i'm getting the doom iii slideshow! ;)

    I'm gonna guess here since you didn't fill in your video card in your profile, but I would say it's your video card.

    I'll have to side with Papa, assuming your laptop has a GF4Go or maybe ATI 9000 Mobile then I really doubt it will ever run DOOMIII smoothly.

    I've just got a generic Toshiba video card. Does anybody have a config file for a slightly lower end comp? I highly doubt I can put a new vid card in this thing, and I just bought a new PC (server, not gaming) so I can't get a new computer...:dead:

    Does anybody know where to get the files for the lost souls, and other missing meshes? I've been trying to spawn some creatures and it just crashes and gives me an error.

    gahhh

    i have this downloaded and i cant get it to work...


    it does the flickering bit on my screen


    and whenever i try to install the NVIDIA driver it requests, it wont recognize my GeForce 5900XT...

    i guess the driver predates the card :-/


    any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
