????? Dude the sound is great in this game.

And if people would just play the game and stop just staring at the walls you would not be worried about low texture(That I dont see)

I have 2 speakers on my desk, and one sub woofer. When people talk in the game it sounds like it was staticy and flat. And not when it's comming through my radio. When comming through my radio it's even worse cause the static effect is already there. Ths sound effects I don't really notice any problem. But it's probably still there for me. I have a sound capture program I'll run sooner or later

But I actually have a Bachelors in Computer Science... does that mean I have full license to make completely irrational and erroneous comments about the game engine?

If so, I'd like to get a running start:

  1. Doom 3's game engine can output at least a full three more gigatexels than Far Cry, Railroad Tycoon and Monopoly! combined.
  2. Doom 3's engine is capable of producing exactly 12.83219 watts of power if you plug your PSU into your cat.
  3. Want to make Doom 3 run better? Break out that butterstick, because your GPU needs some lovin'.

I upped it to 800 resolution with medium detail, and get about the same, but only when I turned off high detail special effects. I wanted at least a solid 50, and I can't even get that with the lowest settings

The light really annoys me. It's one thing to have bad aim, another to not even know where the freaking bad guy is. I'd like at least enough light to see the guy, and still enough darkness to add the creepy factor

The gameplay is ok so far, havn't gotton past the pistol and shotgun. But with the darkness, the lag, and the crazy monsters with major advantages over my pistol, I dunno if I really wanna. Waste of 50 bucks. Maybe E-bay is a better option than playing it...

It's the ****ing 512 ram.

problem with your sound card, turn off hardware acceleration, or bind a key to s_restart and hit it when the audio messes up; ktnxbye

There's a reason we have an official feedback thread. Whether you hate or love it, post it there. I'm sry but you're opinion doesn't require its own thread.
