Hi,

I got some problems while playing Doom 3 on new drivers: lagging continuously, I'm always at 5-25 fps. I didn't have this problem with old drivers but I can't reinstall them because I also play some new games like Crysis, Oblivion, Assassin's Creed & more that require new drivers. Is there any patch/mod/recent driver that works well with Doom 3 plz ? Some more details : My actual driver : 175.16 (I also tried the 174, 169 and 162 drivers) OS : Windows XP SP2 pro Doom 3 version : v1.31 Setup: Motherboard : ASUS Maximus Formula SE Processor : Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 OC @ 3GHz Graphic card : MSI GeForce 8800Ultra Memory : Crucial 2x1Go DDR2-800

(and sorry for my bad english, you know frenchs :lol: )

Make sure you have installed all the latest versions of D3, gfx drivers and DirectX !

Any D3 engine (now IdTech4) should run without any lag on a good actual system, i see that you have a very good system up to date, so i think you may have badly configured Doom 3, remove your Doomconfig.cfg on the Doom 3 base (and d3xp also if you have the ROE expansion) folders, then add the Autoexec.cfg from any of my latest mods to both base (and d3xp) folders of your Doom 3 directory (folder), ok ! For example download this latest small mod and take the Autoexec.cfg from the .zip file...:

Cold Breath, Doom 3 Downloads, Doom 3 Single Player

Tell me now if all is fine, now ! :)

VERY IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR ANY GAMER, THIS IS TO FIND, DOWNLOAD AND INSTALL THE LATEST DIRECTX JUNE 2k8 ARCHIVE...: You can find the latest and very important DirectX June 2k8 download file here...:

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=822640AB-0983-4C41-9C70-632F6F42C557&displaylang=en

And the same but web installer only DirectX version here...:

Download details: DirectX End-User Runtime

I recommend better to click on the first link because it enables to download the full latest DirectX, so you have saved on some folder the compressed file always for you to re-install it quickly, because there are many games or games DEMOS sometimes install older versions of DirectX, so after you have installed some game or game demo, if you think that an older DirectX may have replaced your DirectX then for safety just quickly re-install the latest DirectX from that full DirectX file, ok ! :)

Hello again, i want to add something in my statement saying...:

"Remove or rename your Doomconfig.cfg on the Doom 3 base (and d3xp also if you have the ROE expansion) and any mod folders you may want to use, then add my specially created Autoexec.cfg from any of my latest mods to both base (and d3xp) and any mod folders of your Doom 3 directory (folder), ok !"And i want to add something specifically for D3XP (Resurrection Of Evil) users, that is...; Better take the file named Autoexec_d3xp.cfg from any of my mods, in this case if it is a D3XP (ROE) mod, better, then copy it to your D3XP mod folder or D3XP official expansion folder you want to use and finally rename that Autoexec_d3xp.cfg to Autoexec.cfg, ok now ! :)

Done, now, run D3 or ROE and try if it is now running fine and without or at least less lag from now, of course this Autoexecs for configuration text files can be adapted to your own needs, let me explain something very important about configuration files for all IdTech4 engine game users should know...:

The Doomconfig.cfg file is not as important to change, (config. files can be edited from any good text editor, like Notepad or much better TextPad, a programmers Ascii text editor that i personally use it very intensively on my modding works), because almost anything you change or specially add will get removed or unchanged from what they are as standard previously every time you run D3, (or Q4, or Prey... you get it. :D) so the best is to change or create an Autoexec.cfg into the same folder that you have the Doomconfig.cfg you wanted to change to your own preferred settings, of course, make sure first that both Doomconfig.cfg and Autoexec.cfg are both write-disabled.

And for settings that require a video restart you will need to put at the end of the Autoexec.cfg this command...:

vid_Restart

Done.

Now, see an example of my Doom 3/base/Autoexec.cfg (remember that the lines starting with // are treated as comments and NOT executed)...:
