I been downloading the mod. But I don't have doom 3 installed on my computer yet so I just been downloading the mod in a make shift folder for the time being then planning to cut the files and paste them into where they are meant to go when I install doom 3. Will this work or do I have to download the files into the the doom 3 folder for it to work?

Should work just fine if you place them correctly :)

 

i.e if your temp folder is called "darkmod" and you're using the updater to download it, all you'll have to do is paste the folder into the doom3 folder and run the launcher. If you're not using the launcher to download you either need to make 100% sure you have everything or if you can, run it from the folder once you have everything and it'll just do a final check.

 

the final thing will look a bit like this over-simplistic tree :

c:/
   games/
       doom3/
           doom3.exe
           base/
           other doom3 files and folders
           darkmod/
               launcher.exe
               the tdm pk4's and all the rest

Thankyou, it's working now.

      Say, I know it's been a while since the site got overhauled from the crash. But did we ever figure out if/how to get the recent topics & replies list back? It's not a total deal breaker but it was nice for becoming a thread creeper again...

      Some of you who've been on the TDM discord know I was out of work last Winter, just putting in hrs for the developer portfolio. Currently I've been working a seasonal job to pay the bills and now I'm finally in my last week before I get bumped off. Things will be tight but I'm planning a long off period to make as much content as I can. Big plans in Unreal Engine as well as my most ambitious TDM collab yet! Never been so excited to be a stuck at home to pursue my life's work. With a lotta time and maybe some luck, I'm hoping to get enough art work done that I may start applying around to studios.

      I finally got around to play Prey and I truly loved it. It is an incredible homage to System Shock and Deus Ex. While the gameplay is not en par with those two titles, the game makes up for that with its well written lore and story. The whole "world" just feells so authentic and it features a ton of really god environmental story-telling. Recommended for every immersive sim fan, i.e., everyone on this forum.
