Want to play Doom 3 with full lights, no dark corners whatsoever, really enjoying the marvelous locations ? Seeing the buggers is just a collateral =) Yes, I DID NOT LIKE Doom 3, even with the duct tapes mod it was too dark !! But, I played the Resurrection of Evil expansion which is much much lighter and was totalled hooked and begging for more, so ...
Do a first grade simple 2 minute modification of the reknowned "Yet another flashlight mod for Doom 3", and you are ready.
1) Download "Yet another flashlight mod for Doom 3", Yafm-hl.zip (YAFM-Headlight v0.907) by CHaSE. From its homesite http://neherson.narod.ru/ or anywhere else.
2) It contains a readme.txt and the file, yafm-hl.pk4. Open yafm-hl.pk4 with winzip, and extract all to whatever directory you like. (Must be winzip, the Doom 3 pk4 files are just winzip zips renamed to pk4) 3) You'll get 4 subdirectories def guis script sound 4) Go to the script subdirectory, open ai_player.script with notepad or any text editor. Search for the word "height", there is only one in all the file. You'll find these two sentences : sys.setSpawnArg( "light_up", "0 0 0.5" ); // light cone height sys.setSpawnArg( "light_right", "0 -0.5 0" ); // light cone width Change the two 0.5 to 2.5, so : sys.setSpawnArg( "light_up", "0 0 2.5" ); // light cone height sys.setSpawnArg( "light_right", "0 -2.5 0" ); // light cone width
Save with notepad or whatever, and exit. 5) Now save with winzip the four subdirectories, def guis script sound to a file called "yafm-hl.pk4" Mind, .pk4, not .zip ! 6) Copy "yafm-hl.pk4" to a subdirectory called yafm-hl in the subdirectory that contains Doom3.exe. Do NOT copy inside the "base" subdirectory !!
7) Fire Doom3 and in the first game menu, down on the right, click on MODS , choose yafm-hl.
8) The first game menu reappears in a moment, now down on the left choose Options, Controls, OTHER. If you did not f.u., the last control on Other, MUST be Headlight, choose the key to bind it to. 9) Go into the game, press the chosen key, and voila!, the whole cavern lights up, the ceiling, the ship, the far wall, everything!!
On the menu, Systems, tweak the brightness and/or specularity (on Advanced) to your likings. Thanks a million to CHaSE for his marvelous mod !!!
i don`t know how doom 3 can be scary anymore if you make all things light....
nah, use a decent mod to make the game better rather than making everything light. imho.. Strider
ok i did what this post said to do with that mod, and yes it worked but i could not get past the initial message when first get the PDA, when it says click to continue, nothing happend when i clicked, i am guessing thats cause this does not work with new versions of patched doom 3, and sugestions and how to make this work?
basically i just wanna get rid of the dark altogether
All of you know why all the terror movies are DARK ? Try to light up all those movies, like Alien, The Ring, Exorcist and others and they will not scare anymore !!!
ya i realize that, not like i dont get it, i have my own opinions which differ from many of you, so what... how i play doom 3 , has no effect on you
Ah, yes, play Doom 3 in they way you like, everyone has they're own opinions that are perfectly good !
it isn't doom 3 if it isn't DARK! some of these mods completely screw up Doom 3!
dafama can you give me instruction how to install alpha team cause i dont get the instrucions
