File Description

After a hiatus of almost 4 months, cleandesperado is here to once again, put a smile on your face! If you are tired of sacrificing quality of your Doom game, just so you can get a little more performance then have we got a file ready for your immediate enjoyment! What will this file do for you and your gaming adventure? Well, with it you can tune the game's settings, and create a config file. Every setting has its own description, and most of them have pictures also!

Some of the Main Categories include: Graphics:

  • The title says everything. Not just resolution, but AA, AF, muzzle flash, particles, blood effects, light multiplier and many other settings!
Sound options:
  • Occlusion, EAX, OPENAL, Speaker System, Reverse audio channels, and many other settings
Game options:
  • Gravity, gun position (X,Y,Z), Movement/Run speed, Third person view, Time scale, enable nightmare difficulty level, etc.
Network settings (helps to improve your pings!):
  • Allow downloads, max rate, prediction, Number of sending move commands
And many other settings!

You can find four presets by default in the Doom 3 TWEAKER (you can save presets also). You can load any of them by clicking on the 'Load Preset' button, and selecting it.

  • 1 - Minimum Quality.prs
    • If you want to get the MAXIMUM FPS possible in Doom 3, use this preset. It's useful if you're playing on a very old machine. Note: some textures, texts will become unreadable.
  • 2 - Low Quality.prs
    • Using this preset gives you more FPS. The different between the Minimum Quality preset and this preset, is that the Gun is shown in your hand, and the texture quality is slightly better.
  • 3 - Maximum Quality.prs
    • Use this preset if you want to boost doom3's graphics to the highest level.
  • 4 - Set everything to default.prs
    • This preset sets every setting to it's default value.

Other functions: Import cfg files Create/load language files (langeditor included) Delete cfg files Doom 3 Tweaker is a must have for every Doom III gamer that wants to squeeze as much optimal performance out of their gaming rig that is possible...start your download so you can start your gaming enjoyment! With this tweaker you can generate configuration files for doom 3. Naturally the Tweaker has much more options (cvars) than you can found in Doom3's main menu! In the tweaker every option has a description, and most of the options have Pictures also, so you'll clearly understand what does that particular setting do!!! If you don't want to examine every option, you can load one from the 5 presets. Naturally You can create your own presets also! The Doom 3 tweaker has a language editor (included), so with your help, it can be multilingual.

    • Some of the changes in this version include:[/b]
      • Updated descriptions
      • New settings (5): Subwoofer volume, Show hit percentage (+picture), toggle zoom, toggle run, toggle crouch (+picture)
      • Pictures added (2): Time scale, Bumpmap quality
      • Mono lights option removed, since it only makes difference for GeForce3 cards, which are really rare today.
      • Now you can set Client Prediction to negative values (minimum: -100)
      • Minimum value of r_brightness and r_gamma is now 0.5 (instead of 0.1) because below 0.5 they aren't valid.

About:
################

Hello and thank you for downloading my Doom 3 tweaker!
With this tool You can tweak your doom 3 settings very deeply.

Note: You'll need the .net Framework 3.5 (maybe 2.0 is enough) to run this application!

Version: 1.5


################################
What is a config file?
##############################

Every config (configuration) file (<whatever>.cfg) stores Doom3&apos;s settings. If you set something in the menus, it&apos;ll be saved into a config file, so the game can read it, and apply it at it&apos;s next start (so it won&apos;t forget your settings).
But usually there are more settings than you can find in the game menus. To modify these settings, you must edit the configuration files manually, which is not so easy, because you won&apos;t know which setting what does. 
Fortunately, I collected the most useful settings in this tweaker which can save your settings into config files.

Notes:
-Doom 3 can load config file from the Doom 3 Base directory (doom3 install pathbase,  an example: C:Program FilesDoom 3base)

-To execute a config file, you must type the following into the developer console (myconfig is the name of your configfile): exec myconfig.cfg
(you can bring down the developer console by pressing Ctrl + Alt + ~   or Ctrl + Alt + 0 in the game or in the game menu.

-Doom 3 will execute the autoexec.cfg named config file at every startup (naturally if it exists).


################################
How to create a config file:
##############################

1. Launch the Doom 3 Tweaker
2. Load a preset, import an existing config file OR tune the settings manually (you can read detailed descriptions, and see pictures about the settings by clicking on the &apos;?&apos; button).
	2a. if you want to use this set later, you can save it as a preset. note: you can import a ready config file also.
3. Click on the &quot;Save config file&quot; button
4. Search your Doom 3 base directory (doom3 folder path, where the doom3.exe is + &quot;base&quot;  for example: &quot;c:Program FilesDoom 3base&quot;
5. Click on the save button
	6a. If you saved your config file with &quot;Autoexec.cfg&quot; name (default), just Run Doom 3, and enjoy your new settings!
	6b. if you changed the name of the config file (for example myconfig.cfg), run Doom 3, and type in the console: exec myconfig.cfg

Note:	If you followed 6b, you should enter the console the following: vid_restart
	This will apply some of the graphical settings, like video mode, texture quality, etc.
	To apply sound related settings enter the following into the console: s_restart

	To open the console, press Ctrl + Alt + ~ (tilde); (this may be Ctrl + Alt + 0 with some european keyboards)
	

########################################
Tweaking Quake 4, Prey, ETQW:
######################################

Quake 4&apos;s configuration variables, are very similiar to Doom 3&apos;s configuration variables.
This means you can use this Doom 3 tweaker with Quake 4, since the settings are the same.
Some options may work for Prey, since it&apos;s built upon the idTech 4 engine too.
If you want to tweak ET: Quake Wars, use my ETQW Tweaker (website: http://cleandesperado.googlepages.com )


#########################
Tips, hints, notes:
#######################

-Click on the &apos;Def&apos; button to set the setting to its default value.
-Click on the &apos;?&apos; button to see the description, and picture (not avaliable for all of the settings) of the particular setting.
-In the presets folder, you can load some presets.
-You can import the configuration file created by the game, with the &apos;import cfg file&apos; button.
-You can save your settings as presets.
-You can clear a Combo-listbox by selecting it&apos;s content (like a content of a textbox), and pressing delete. Then it&apos;ll be ignored when the Tweaker builds the config file.
	Combo-listbox actually works the same as the textbox, but it has some predefined values.


#######################################
Presets:
#####################################

You can find 5 presets by default in the tweaker. You can load any of them by clicking on the &apos;Load Preset&apos; button, and selecting it.

1 - Minimum Quality.prs		If you want to get the MAXIMUM FPS possible in Doom 3, use this preset. It&apos;s useful if you&apos;re playing on a very old machine. Note: some textures, texts will become unreadable.
2 - Low Quality.prs		Using this preset gives you more FPS. The different between the Minimum Quality preset and this preset, is that the Gun is shown in your hand, and the texture quality is slightly better.
3 - Maximum Quality.prs		Use this preset if you want to boost doom3&apos;s graphics, and audio to the highest level. Note: if your sound card supports OpenAL, and EAX 4.0, don&apos;t forget to enable them also.
Set everything to default.prs	This preset sets every setting to it&apos;s default value.
Doom 2 style.prs		This preset gives Doom 1-2 like gameplay. It will incrase the running and walking speed, speed up the time by 10%, and incrase the brightness. The gun will be showed in the middle also.

Note:   after loading a preset you must create a config file in the Doom3 base directory (and execute it, if it&apos;s filename is not autoexec.cfg), to apply the settings!
Note 2: the &apos;doom 2 style.prs&apos; preset needs to be executed each time after a map has been loaded!
