DOOM 3 Patch (v1.3.1) - File Description  

This is the newest release from id Software that improves Vista compatibility, the SDK as well as fixes several minor bugs in the game among other things.

Please note that in-game console commands are not supported by Activision(R).

This update for Doom 3 addresses issues found in multiplayer and single player since release. A complete list of what we have fixed and added is below. For future releases and more information about the game, please visit our web site: http://www.doom3.com

Have a look at what awaits you...

    Some of the other features included are:
  • Fix rendering
  • Fix a potential crash in physics
  • Fix an issue with pak downloaded being immediately appended without filesystem restart
  • Fixes to DNS lookup, reduced the stalls

    Fixes for modding/SDK:
  • Fix RevBitFieldSwap issue (affected only big endian platforms)
  • Fix ReadBindFromSnapshot
  • Pass lastPredictFrame to the game (client prediction)
  • Pass HandleMainMenuCommands to the game
  • Allow game to override gui load menu

For additional technical help with Doom 3, please see the Help system that came with the game, or visit the DOOM 3 web site: http://www.doom3.com

A few notes about Vista:

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.

Refer to the readme for more information.

DOOM 3 Patch (v1.3.1) - Readme  
Readme File:

- 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 1.3 update, you will need to re-enable it
in the console (g_nightmare 1). After enabling it in the console, the game must
be relaunched in order for nightmare mode to show up as a selectable option.

- Also included in the 1.3 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".

Fixes & Updates in 1.3.1:
- Tested and improved Vista compatibility
- Fix a potential crash in physics
- Fix an issue with pak downloaded being immediately appended without
filesystem restart
- Fixes to DNS lookup, reduced the stalls
- 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
- Fix Alsa sound backend (Linux)
- Fixes to tty code (Linux)

Fixes for modding/SDK:
- Fix RevBitFieldSwap issue (affected only big endian platforms)
- Fix ReadBindFromSnapshot
- Verbose overflow check in idBitMsg::WriteBits and apply related fixes
- Fix a GetFileList issue
- Expose key states and button states to the game
- Pass lastPredictFrame to the game (client prediction)
- Pass HandleMainMenuCommands to the game
- Pass the GUID to the game (in ClientConnect call)
- Allow game to override gui load menu

Fixes & Updates in 1.3:
- PunkBuster(TM) support has been added.
- 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

- Added UploadImage to idRenderSystem interface. This lets the user blit images
to the renderer.
- Supports fs_game_base; this lets you base a mod off base game + d3xp + your
own content.

Linux specific:
