D3_1_3 (1.3)


What's New in Version 1.3.1


  • v 1.3.1:
  • We've tested Doom 3 and Quake 4 to run fine on Windows Vista, provided you have an OpenGL ICD installed (provided by your GPU vendor). Both NVidia and AMD/ATI have released an OpenGL ICD in their latest driver line.
  • If no OpenGL ICD is present, the default OpenGL driver is a wrapper to D3D provided by Microsoft, which lacks the necessary features to run id games with their full performance and graphical impact.
  • The install CDs (and DVDs) for Doom 3 and Quake 4 will install the game fine under Vista. The Quake 4 installer may require you to install Flash Player first, and Vista may pop occasional warning windows but in the end you will get a working installation.
  • Tested and improved Vista compatibility.
  • Fix a potential crash in physics.
  • Fix an issue with pak downloaded being immediately appended without filesystem restart.
  • Updated the code to gcc 4.0 compliance, for Mac OSX universal binaries and GNU/Linux x86 binaries.
  • Threading implementation for Mac and Linux is more compliant with the Win32 behaviours.
  • v 1.3:
  • PunkBuster(TM) support has been added. When enabling or disabling PunkBuster(TM) on a server, the game must be restarted before the change takes effect.
  • EAX(R) ADVANCED HD(TM) support in the sound engine contributed by Creative Labs(R). Doom 3 base game comes with room reverb data.
  • To utilize EAX(R) ADVANCED HD(TM) in Doom 3, you must have 100% EAX 4.0 compatible sound card. Please refer to your sound card manufacturer for details on whether or not your sound card supports EAX 4.0.
  • Sound Blaster(R) Audigy(R) 2 users who wish to utilize the new EAX 4.0 feature in Doom 3 should download the latest Creative Beta Drivers for the card released on April 5th, 2005. Not using these drivers may result in game instability while using EAX 4.0.
  • Server provides .pk4 file download URLs (http/ftp), client has internal download.
  • New class of .pk4 files: 'addon paks' are only referenced when the map is loaded in.
  • .pk4 downloads and addon paks come with a number of fixes to the 'pure server mode' filesystem code.
  • Fixed ragdoll bounciness.
  • Fixed how Doom 3 detects LAN client vs. Internet clients.
  • LZW compression of render demos.
  • Fixed command line parameter passing.
  • Added a Quake III-style graph of the connection quality for network clients. It can be toggled with the console command net_clientLagOMeter 1 or 0. This displays a graph of how much the client predicts ahead of the server. Note that as a host you can specify a client's minimum prediction ahead of the server with net_clientPrediction followed by the number of milliseconds. Increasing this value may help with lag.
  • Saved Games from previous versions of the Russian version of Doom 3 cannot be loaded after installing the 1.3 patch. Also, when saving games with Russian characters, names with same amount of characters overwrite each other after installing the 1.3 patch. It is recommended you use non-Cyrillic characters when creating saved games in the Russian version of Doom 3.
  • v 1.1:
  • It is recommended that any user modifications that have been installed to the
  • Doom3 directory be removed before installing this update. These modifications
  • are not supported by Activision and may not be compatible with some of the new
  • features that are included.
  • Using this update will reset your progress in whatever map you are currently saved in. When loading a saved game, the player starts at the begining of that map with their inventory intact.
  • Using this update will reset the Nightmare skill setting. If you are playing in Nightmare mode before applying the 1.1 update, you will need to re-enable it in the console (g_nightmare 1).
  • Also included in this update is a Win32 dedicated server executable. This
  • allows servers to be run under Win32 without a CD Check. You can launch this
  • with command line options or configure it through the console once launched.
  • Just launch "Doom3Ded.exe".
  • Querying a cvar (typing name with no value on the console) now also prints
  • out help text.
  • Updated some cvar docs.
  • Fixed desktop crash when loading a QuickSave made when during influence in
  • EPD Lab in Alphalabs 1.

  • Made print screen bindable.
  • Made Alt-Gr (right alt) bindable separately for European versions. For

  • affected by the update.
