|
| Questions & Ansuwers:
|
| Q) Why do I need this program?
| A) Because no matter how many optimisations you have it still takes forever for each level to load in Doom3, even on a SATA 150.
|
| Q) What does it do?
| A) Recompresses the pk4 files to different compression factors, this should take much less time to load data and levels at the expense of hard drive |space. Options are:
|    Uncompramised Speed  - footprint = 3.92GB - Uses no compression but keeps the files in a pk4 format instead of spilling them out, where speed is valued over hard drive space.
|    Fastest Compression  - footprint = 1.57GB - Uses minimal compression for faster access whilst still having a relatively small footprint. 
|    Original Compression - footprint = 1.45GB - The original compression factior of Doom3, effectively a undo function.
|
| Q) How do I run it?
| A) 1) Run Defrag (optional)
|    2) Make sure you have got Winrar (www.winrar.com) and that it is |installed to the default directory (c:\program files\winrar)
|    3) Extract the file D3ReCom.bat and m.exe to the doom3\base directory and then double click D3ReCom.bat
|    4) Wait
|
| Q) It didn't work, why could this be?
| A) The program should type out the error just do what it tells you.
