Hey guys, just another newb asking thos stupid annoying questions, so bear with me... I have only done any modding in either half life (looooong time ago) or Halo (not so long ago). Anyway, when I go on forums asking abbout editing Doom 3's characteristics (such as ammo, damage, etc.) everybody says "go to Doom 3\Base\def\." Now, here's my problem: There's no def folder! I've even searched my computer for .def files, and only 5 or 6 have come up, used by other programs. So, other than modifying these, is there any thing else i can do, or any programs to use? AAAAAaaany way, im heading off to vacation for a few days. Cheers!:beer:
i know where the def files are they are inside of the pak files
but how you look inside the pak files i have a tool that can look in paks but only half life paks:uhm:
All you need to do is associate the .pk4 extension with winzip. Alternatively, rename pakXXXX.pk4 to pakXXXX.zip Both will work.
Uh Oh How I Turn The Zips Back To Pk4s !
A good thing you did mods with half life. Unlike jdoom HL has to be water tight or else it doesnt even load its the same thing with doom 3. So until a good editor is out just mess around with the in game one.
i have been reading online and i have yet to find any tools for modifying doom 3. i know the sdk has yet to be released and the in-game editor is for making levels. what i dont know is how ppl are making mods (such as theducttapemod) for doom 3. Can someone link me to a guide or some helpful source ?
you have to have a little programming knowledge to know how to mod, or at least know what your looking for.
kill9OUh Oh How I Turn The Zips Back To Pk4s !
I need to create a rubber stamp for this :uhm: OK, here it goes: Easy way In the base folder, create a new text file. open it and type the following line: ren *.zip *.pk4 Save as "zip2pk4.bat" (with quotes!!!) double click the new file. Voila! :cool:
