Recommended Posts

I just replaced my old laptop and my new one is giving me troubles when I try to run Doom3 (gotta have that working before I can install darkmod right) I appologize for asking this here but I don't like Doom and I am not part of the doom community (I bought doom3 so I could play TDM).

 

before we get too far here are my system specs:

Toshiba qosmio X505

Intel Core i5 CPU m450 @ 2.4 GHz

4 GB RAM

Windows 7 64-bit

NVIDIA GTS 360M 1GB video card

not too sure about the sound card I see something called connexant HD and NVIDIA Hi definition sound but I don't know if that means it's an integrated card or discrete. hopefully sound isn't the issue. . .

 

any way I installed doom3 to C:\Program Files (x86)\DOOM3

 

I took out the space doom likes to put between "doom" and "3" because I remember reading a while ago that the space there could cause issues with TDM. I also notice there is an empty file C:\Program Files (x86)\DOOM 3 that was created with game install.

 

the install seemed to work correctly, at least I did not get any error alerts and it said it was successfull but anytime I try to run Doom I get this error message very quickly:

That log looks like Windows 7 is halting write-access for Doom 3. You're starting it with admin privileges, right? And the Contents of /Doom3/ is not set to read-only?

 

Side note: I have gotten TDM to start up without ever having run Doom 3 first.

nbohr1more got it right the first time. boy do I feel dumb for some reason I thought my version of Doom3 was pre-patched. yeah I'm a dummy today. so it is working now, thank you very much for the help but I have another question. I have a wide 18~ish inch monitor and the game doesn't display all the way out to the side. the top and bottom meet up well but there's close to 2 inches of black nothing on either side of the game. my screen resolution is 1680 x 945 the closest I can get the game setting to that is 1680 x 1050 but the black side don't seem to change any from me adjustingz resolution or aspect ratio. the game seem pinched side to side to me. is there any way I can get the game to display fully from side to side?

 

thanks again

Open the console in Doom3/Darkmod (CTRL+ALT+~) and type in:

 

seta r_customHeight 945

 

Then hit enter. Then type in:

 

seta r_customWidth 1680

 

Then hit enter. Then type in:

 

seta r_mode -1

 

Then hit enter. Then type in:

 

vid_restart 1

 

Try that.

I always assumed I'd taste like boot leather.

      When I was a young man my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have him around. As I grew older I was amazed at how much the old man had learned in such a short time.
