Doom 3 BFG Ultimate

28 08 15 - 02:29

Doom 3 BFG Ultimate is a modification for the Doom 3 BFG Edition with better visuals, high resolution textures, high poly models, new effects and lightning, challanging enemies (they move faster, are more agile and dodge a lot) and modified weapons with more credible ammocount, recoil, firerates, bullet velocity and muzzleflash lightning.

It features:

  • better texture resolutions, higher polycount for models - merged some texture/model packs, see credits
  • better effects by phrozo (improved weapon effect lightning, decals, smoke) - fixed some bugs, added improvements and made them work with BFG
  • improved AI by strelok (monsters move faster, dodge more, react and attack more effective) - made them work with BFG
  • Weapon improvements (semi fire for pistol and shotguns, weaponchange now interrupts reload animation, rebalanced damage, firerates and clipsize for some weapons, dry-fire for kickass minigun when out of ammo - try it ;)
  • workaround to simulate muzzleflash lightning (bullet lightning)
  • reduced the player walking and crouch speed a bit and adjusted the head bob
  • fixed some missing sound bugs from the main game

You can download version 1.0 over a moddb.com.

The id Classics (FINALLY) on GOG.com!

26 08 15 - 19:27

About time! I've been refusing to buy the older id games on Steam since they were release and now they're finally on Grand Old Games!

Grand Old Games (gog.com) sells indie and “old” games from when “we were kids”. From DOS to Win 98 games, most guarantied to work on modern Windows OS's. They even have older Mac and Linux games.

Now on GOG.com is Doom, Doom 2 + Final, and Quake. Right now there is a bundle of all three.

Doom 3 BFG HiDef 2.2

21 08 15 - 11:07

Patches 2.0 to 2.2. Added particles and decals that come up missing in mods. 2.1 included. More model work increasing polys on the Imps head and a bunch of level characters like Helldoll. Did a bunch of ROE models also. Increase weapon textures to 1024x1024 and double ROE monster textures and detail on ones that needed it. Includes a Autoexe.cfg with Resource priority set to 0, should speed up load times a bit. Unzip into your Doom 3 BFG directory. patches are accumulative, so 2.1 is included.

If you don't have version 2.0, you can download it here. You can get the 2.2 patch here (no longer avaialble) or also download a larger file with the generated folder so you don't need to generate the binary assets yourself.

Doom 3 BFG HiDef adds custom hi quality Doom 3 assets to the BFG edition to improve the look of the game.

EDIT: 2.2 patch has been supersceded by a full download of 2.2 here.  The 2.2 patch with the generated folder is still availble.

IqeBrowser Bugfix

21 08 15 - 10:59

Several days ago IqeBrowser 2.11 was released. Apparently a memory access violation crept in there so a new version was release. If you got the previous one, download 2.12 & replace the old one. 

IqeBrowser is a program to open and modify various 3D model formats for export to the Inter Quake Model format (IQM or IQE). You can see a video if it in action below.

Map Jam 6: Fire and Brimstone Released

20 08 15 - 10:48

Map Jam, the Quake mapping get together when anyone and everyone maps out the theme, released their Map Jam 6 map pack. The theme this mapping session was (as the title suggests) Fire and Brimstone. Thirteen mappers participated and released a variety of maps. All single player so you gaming loners (like me) can have a blast!

2015-08/jam6collage.jpg

It's recommended (highly) that you use the Quakespasm engine for this bunch of maps as it's the only engine tested that had no issues running every single one of them.

You can download the map over at Quaketastic and can get the Quakespasm engine over at Sourceforge (note: Sourceforge has been re-working some installers you download from it's site to add extra downloads, if you download the engine and it tries to install something else it has nothing to do with the Quakespasm engine developers).

Leave your comments over at the Func_Msgboard commentents and thanks to Func_Msgboard for providing the news!

IqeBrowser 2.11 Out

19 08 15 - 10:36

What is IqeBrowser? IqeBrowser is a program to browse IQE, IQM (Inter-Quake Model format) and many other 3D models. Any 3D model can be saved as IQM (a binary format) or IQE (a text format) file. Some model processing tools are integrated to resize, shift, rotate, reskin ... the model and also to create/ modify skeletons or animations.

IQM/IQE is a format supported in the Darkplace engine (Quake) and Yet Another 3D Adventure Game (Quake 2).

The latest feature is animation re-targeting, so you can take (for example) a walk animation from one character and apply it to another character. You can download the latest version from moddb.com and be sure to check out the authors project YA3DAG!

Doom 3 BFG Hi Def v 2.0 and Tutorials

08 08 15 - 10:55

Another version of Doom 3 BFG Hi Def has been released. D3BFG-HD takes many of the non-BFG Doom 3 high quality add ons and makes them D3BFG compatible in a single mod. I don't own D3BFG so I can't check it out but it seems to deliver!

You can get the latest over at moddb.com. You'll need the 2.0 version and then the patch.  Some mods for it have also been added to moddb.com.

The author also wrote some tutorials about RBDoom3bfg, the GPL tweaked D3 BFG engine. There's a “Troubleshooting” and “Modding, What to Know”.
