File Description

New edition of this tool intended to shorten Doom 3's loading times. It expands the list of compression choices and adds more friendliness to it.

flexable has cancelled any future version that would add support for WinZIP. But I could possibly make him change his mind: check this link http://www.info-zip.org to see why :)

Warning: because this tool encourages you to alter native Doom 3's game files, it could possibly prevent you from playing online. Use it at your own risks!

|
| Questions & Answers:
|
| 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:
|    Decompressed Mode ---- footprint = 3.92GB - Uses no compression but keeps the files in a pk4 format instead of spilling them out, where maximum speed is valued over drive space.
|    Faster Compression --- footprint = 1.57GB - Uses minimal compression for faster access whilst still having a relatively small footprint. 
|    Original Compression - footprint = 1.56GB - The original compression factior of Doom3, effectively a undo function.
|    Highest Compression -- footprint = 1.55GB - Uses maximum compression to save on disk space at the expense of load time.

| 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 z.exe to the doom3\base directory and then double click D3ReCom.bat
|    4) Wait
|    5) Run Defrag again (optional)
|
| Q) It didn't work, why could this be??
| A) The program should type out the error, just do what it tells you.

+----------------------------------------------------
|
| Future Versions:
|
| Cancelled!! 0.33 WinZIP support (Winzip command line support would only be available for registered users who had downloaded a command line addon, as such very few users would benifit from such a feature and so it will not be supported by this project.)
|
+----------------------------------------------------
|
| History:
|
| 24-08-2004 0.30 - Added higher compression method, program is user more friendly now.
| 23-08-2004 0.22 - Added insufficient disk space failsafe, code streamlined.
| 20-08-2004 0.10 - First release.
