thhis is a tweak submitted to d3files and i was kind of confused about it also setting: com_videoRam = "64"

to the amount of video ram you have (128 or 256) you should see a performance boost. i searched in my cfg file for that line "com_videoram" and i couldnt find it do i enter it in the console? =\ i cant figure this one out. also this tweak: "Although setting cacheMegs to 96 (and then 128) in the cfg provided me almost no xtra frames, one thing i did do that drastically improved performance was to extract the .pk4 files into the base directory then delete the original .pk4 files so d3 isnt forever unpacking files...gave a sweet boost =)) hope that helps someone out there...

Some may remember this from old Quake days (just extract them with winRar)

-Klamath:" i wasnt sure what to do here. do i unzip ALL of the pk3 files into my base directory so i have hundereds of little files in there? please help if you can:cool: -thanks

The RAM - in the DoomConfig.cfg manually type in com_videoRam "" with quotes on the ram. The unzip thing - Yes, you unzip all the pak files WITH FOLDERNAMES to your base folder. And btw, this is doom3. Its pk4 not pk3 ;)

thanks for the help. one question when you say folder names do you mean, if i unzipped the pk4 file that was called pak004 then i name the folder pak004 and put all the files from that pk4 in there? also i can use winzip instead of winrar right? AND isnt it "seta com_videoRam """?

Well you could use any u want really. Winzip while extracting you can check a box saying "With foldernames". Winrar basicly displays the folders, and u can just drag them into base and they'll extract to there. It's your choice! With foldernames - the pk4's are packed in a special way, containing folders. If you open one of the pak files with Winrar, you will notice that it has folders. The extracting trick needs you to have all these folders in your Base, with files in of course. If you dont then it wont recognize much of the files, and the game will go crazy on you. To be simple: Open one of the pk4's in WinRar - make sure your base folder is in reach - then select every file/folder in your view - then simply just drag them to your base folder.
