it lurks in a room on the first map, i havent seen the water in that either. Actually I would check out the doom alpha, the shots everyones got have that cool scene with the monsta eating the zombie in the bathrooms, yikes! on a 56k tho 380megs is not very realistic.

Much better sized download is the final fantasy XI benchmark, weighing in at a light 11mb. i will use this to make my iron crawl instead, anyone interested can pick it up from

i sure hope the final of ff xi doesn't look like the benchmark. its like looking at a ps2 game on a computer monitor. the bad blurry textures are magnified.

ok guys here is my benchmarks ...

AtlonXp 1900+ ,Geforce4 ti400 ,1GB ddr ram..

in doom3 i got at 800x600 high quality settings
, noaa/no af

1)30-45 fps with no monsters ,
2)and and average of 10-15frames with monsters fights
3) in one scene which there is a big explosion in droped to 5fps ... hehe..



my friend benchmarks ,,\
p4 1.6 @ 2.2GHz ,radeon9700pro ,512 megs DDr

1) from 45-60 frames with no monsters
2) an average from 18-25 frames with monsters fights
3)in the same scene above the performance dropped up to 5fps


the game is very playable from 20-30 frames , because its
doesnt require the blazing speeds of multiplayer deathmatch
games like quake/unreal games..

from 14-20 frames is was still playable in my Geforce4 but not smooth .. the only times it was near imposible to play (1fps) ,was
in very close combat fight with the fireball demons

in those same close combats the radeon9700pro performance
dropped few times up to 7fps!!! ..

so it is interesting to see ,that this game biggest problem
will be its performance ,while it was playable at 800x600
in the radeon9700pro ,you will need a more powerfull system
if you dont ever want to experience huge drop in frame rates .

graphics are Good to me ,but not impressive as quake3 was
when the first time i saw it..textures really needs more work..
the dynamics lights looks good in the game , levels have lots
of polys . bumpmaps were nice too.

but the most impressive thing for me in the game was the physics engine ,much better that anything i have seen.

im looking foward for the final game ,its well worth the money
,im really sure it will be a great game..

I am curious to see about CPU dependence. Is it going to be like UT2003 where my nice Radeon 9700 is useless when there is AI in use? I have a 2000+, but I guess that is not enough anymore. BTW, how is the 5.1 sound? I remember back when EAX and A3D were just starting, they really sucked.

my friend benchmarks ,,\
p4 1.6 @ 2.2GHz ,radeon9700pro ,512 megs DDr

1) from 45-60 frames with no monsters: around 45 fps for me not 60
2) an average from 18-25 frames with monsters fights: same here

3)in the same scene above the performance dropped up to 5fps:
yep

Overall the performance for an alpha is very good. Be sure to set a higher priority time and disable some shadows as well as close of all background apps.
