copy your saved games and reinstall then place your saved games back in the folder where they should be....not responsible if the save games dont show up tho as Ive not tried this as Ive had no need.

You might also consider deleting your Doom config file. I haven't played since Monday night , so I don't remember if it has a .cfg file, but I wouldn't be surprised at all. The windowed mode option should be in there somewhere. Deleting the file will force D3 to create a new, generic one.

thanks for the idea vash, i actually just edited my shortcut to +set r_fullscreen 1 in order to put it back into full screen and that didn't work... maybe if i set to fullscreen and reboot it will fix.

i would have had it already reinstalled, but i am afraid of what might happen to my savegames, lol

No problem. Sorry to hear it didn't work... as far as your savegames go, they'll be fine if you move 'em to a different folder, reinstall, and move 'em back. I've been doing this with games for years; save files are, for the most part, fully contained. They just need to be in the right directory.

That is generally true, however, I have had some games where that approach didnt work and the game didnt recognize any saved games after a reinstall. Something like a registry addition inside the game itself telling to look up a specific file. Without that registry addition inside the game itself(not the computers windows registry), it has no reference for a savegame. Remember, usually the approach works, but some games it doesnt. Thats why I gave a warning.

Default Re: Doom3 Died!!!!

grrr... i got doom to work, but my sound is ****ed now. i am assuming this all has something to do with me adjusting the hardware acceleration for d3... i had the problem where it cut out from time to time so i did as activision said and now when i try to play something i must turn my speakers all the way up for it to even be audible; i have tried using the speaker wizard again, i've tried reinstalling the drivers, i've tried everything. this is a global problem with windows, not just d3.


grrr, i'm very upset, i didn't do anything to deserve this

yay! it's a bug in nvidia's drivers, lol... i took the despirate approach of clicking every damn thing there is and see what happens; when i clicked night mode on it went really loud, then i clicked night mode off and it returned to normal (normal being normal volumes)

yay! i fixed it, i was really worried there for a sec i'd done something that couldn't be fixed without a reformat, lol.
