UltimateHD v2.0 and Update v2.0.3 has been released...


This modification works only with the BFG Edition of Doom 3, published by Bethesda, available on Steam!

Ultimate HD v2.0.3 Full: Ultimate HD Patch from v2.x to v2.0.3:
Doom3 BFG UltimateHD v2.0.3 Full UltimateHD v2.0.3 Patch


How to install:

Unzip the whole 7z-Package to your "DOOM3 BFG Edition" main directory
(usually at ..\Steam\steamapps\common\DOOM 3 BFG Edition)

If everything's gone right there should be a "@UltimateHD" directory in your main directory
( => ..\Steam\steamapps\common\DOOM 3 BFG Edition\@UltimateHD)


How to start the Mod:

run "Doom3 BFG UltimateHD.exe" (This starts RBDoom3BFG.exe with the right parameter)

If you don't want to use the included EXE you can also create a shortcut of "RBDoom3BFG.exe" with the following parameter +set fs_resourceLoadPriority 0 +set fs_game @UltimateHD
Should look like this => "..\RBDoom3BFG.exe +set fs_resourceLoadPriority 0 +set fs_game @UltimateHD"

For further Informations please read the UltimateHD Readme



Important Side Note!

This mod uses a dedicated mod-directory called "@UltimateHD" located in your main "DOOM3 BFG Edition" directory. It doesn't mess around with the default "base" directory and it's files.

This Mod will cause huge loading times between levels and intros due to the "generated" ressources process; depending of your system configuration it could take minutes and may look like the game crashed, but it isn't. It will only occur once at the very first start of a new map.

If you already modified your "base" directory, i recommend to make a clean install of Doom3 BFG before you install this mod, because it might have conflicts with modified "base" files.

Here's some more gameplay, if it's still of any use for the author :) I use the latest version of the mod.
Youtube.com

I would like to say that the shotgun here is marvelous (my favorite weapon)! Though I kinda miss the vanilla pistol with wooden grip and the greenish vanilla SMG (texturewise only). Also the chaingun's damage is a bit too low to my taste, it feels like it's firing pistol bullets. Projectile spreading is good for balancing high damage and it's there (in your mod) already.
But don't listen to me, this mod is awesome! The sounds are perfect!
Thank you very much for your work!

Most of the textures used in UltimateHD are from Wulfen texture pack + the new ones from D3 Redux. I'm using almost the same high poly model files that are provided by Hi Def except a handful that were causing errors and crashes. I also added a bunch of own created highres textures that are not included in Hi Def or ImmersiveHD.

Thank you. :) So why Hi Def has 2,8GB?

There are tons of resized textures from Doom3 classic in HiDef. Simply upscaling textures from 128x128 to 1024x1024 doesn't improve them qualitatively that much, but produce higher processing and loading times, as well more download size. I tested the upscaled textures and tbh i wasn't impressed that much. I decided to save that diskspace. (no offense to HiDef)

I am most impressed with the gameplay in this mod bro, the chaingun sounds like the death machine from cod and as always, phorozos particles are amazing, graphics superb, almost makes me wanna buy the Bfg edition. This is by all means the best mod for bfg edition. keep up the great work. I'll be checking up on this page to see what is new.
