Custom Flashlights

Doom 3 Custom Flashlight Textures

To make a custom texture for your flashlight in Doom 3, create a .pk4 file or copy one from your Doom 3 directory and clear it out. You can use a compression program such as WinZip to open and compile .pk4 files.

Once you have an empty .pk4 file to work with, create a folder named "lights" (without quotes). Grab the image you want to use and convert it to a .tga file (256 X 256 pixels is a good size). When you use the image it will be reversed, so mirror your image before saving it. Name the image flashlight6.tga, place it in the lights folder and make sure that folder goes in your .pk4 file. Then, rename the .pk4 file so it is the highest number in your Doom 3 directory. For example, if you have a pak005.pk4 file already, you will have to name your new flashlight texture file pak006.pk4 for it to take effect.

Once you have renamed the file, place it in your base directory and start the game.

Easier kills

Have you ever noticed what happens when you kill an important character and he comes back to life at the next scene? It only happens to the main characters, so take advantage of that.

For example: In the lvl 'Mars City Underground' just before you get outside on mars, there is a security guard standing there with a pistol, I shot him in the head and shot him a couple more times to get rid of the body, then I entered the inner airlock door and continued my mission.

When demons start coming into the UAC facility, you make your way back to the same point. I asked myself "Where is the guard I shot earlier?" His body was never possessed by a hell soul because it wasn't there... think about that advantage you can have...

How to Kill Some of Doom 3's Enemies

Hi fellow Pc/X-box players. I am here to tell you 'the best' weapons to use against some of Doom 3's finest enemies.

Zombie type: Zombie type monsters didn't exactly come from hell, but they were resurrected by the evil souls of hell. All these monsters need is 3-6 pistol shots, or if you like getting nasty then 1 shotgun blast up close should knock them down cold, leaving nothing! Although some zombies like the chainsaw zombie are hard to kill, it would hurt to bring out the machine gun.

Trites and Ticks: Well well well, aren't we all afraid of spiders? No way! These guys are the weakest of the weak, 2-5 pistol rounds should do'em good.

Imps: These guys first scare you when you first meet them, but when you get used to it they become just a little ant to you. 1 shotgun blast up close and this guy burns his way back to hell.

Pinky Demon: These half machine half bull creatures freak me out. They will run at you like a bull until it's caught you in a corner and chewed your head off. 2-3 shotgun blasts up close (I wouldn't wanna get near that thing!) should take it down for good.

Lost Soul: These are the 2nd weakest but the fasted enemies in the game. Just because I said they're weak is doesn't mean your safe, they travel in packs and make a human like cry as they fly toward you. Using the chain gun from far away should be quite easy taking them out.

Hell knight: One of the strongest demons in the game. These guys like to throw green flame at you, or if you get to close he picks you up and throws you across the room. Using a rocket Launcher or a plasma gun from a distance, you can easily make a few hits and runs with the rocket launcher. Just don't get close or...its too gory too explain.

Cherub: An insect like creature with the face of a baby and the body of a bee. They like to travel in small packs. Take a plasma gun from far away and take these things down before they get into your dreams! Or to make it fun, you can take the machine gun or chain gun and spray the place to get rid of them slowly.

Revenant: I guess keeping this guy 6 feet under the ground in a coffin wasn't the brightest plan, now that you see he escaped, found a couple of rocket launchers and mounted them on his shoulders. A chain gun, plasma gun, or rocket launcher do these guys really well.

Cacodemon: Big, floating, slow and easy too kill because it's so slow. The rocket launcher is the perfect weapon to blow a hole in these things.

Mancubus: The strongest non-boss enemy in Doom 3. Because its so heavy and strong, its super slow. Mounted on each arm is a rocket launcher that fires more than 1 rocket at a time. Rocket launcher, plasma gun or a BGF 9k should work on these big demons, but it would take a lot of ammo to finish him off. Keep moving while firing and you're safe.

Boss's: Its up to you how you choose to kill them...

id Software PDA

In the final level, Excavation Site, after going down the elevator into Hell, stick to the left wall. Make sure to stay to the left, or the final cutscene will trigger. You should come to a dead end with candles barely lighting a brick with the id logo in the center. Click this brick and a wall will open to your left. Walk inside the room to find the id Software PDA containing "Thank You" emails from the staff.

lag busters

remember, sometimes people want to enjoy a game without the lag.try turning off the shadows. its just one more texture that your computer has to deal with.
maybe some of the ambiance is lost but for the most part it will not lag as much. also there are some great mods out there that are easy to install and the great thing about them is they give your walk/run speed, ammo and all your health an added boost.
check out doom3filefront.com they have some pretty cool mods from adding more gore to speeding up your game.

Nightmare Difficulty Without Finishing the Game

You will need to edit the DoomConfig.cfg file, located in the /Data/BASE folder. Make sure you backup the file before making any changes. Open the file with Notepad or other text editor. Look for the "g_nightmare" entry. If you haven't finished the game yet, you will see the number 0. Change it to 1, save, and nightmare mode will be unlocked.
