Hi,

 

just some questions which i couldnt find fast with the search engine. i'm thinking of buying doom 3 cause of this mod..

 

so, is it in any way preferable to have the doom 3 expansion also installed? and does tdm work with the german version of doom 3 as good as with the english one?

 

Thank you for a friendly answer.

We're not using any language-specific game content like D3 voice sounds, so in actual TDM gameplay there won't be a difference, I think.

 

However, some main menu GUI strings and buttons might be missing in the German language file. I don't have access to a German version of the game anyway, so somebody else would need to check this out.

I am using the German version and it works just fine, except that everything is in English in TDM :)

I thought you couldn't even get Doom 3 in Germany, because it might hurt people's feelings and that is now a crime according to modern politicians.

 

The game is +18, so it is not available on ebay, and not in online shops as a used version.

 

You can only buy it:

 

* via Steam. This means you need a credit card *and* be over 18, too. (You also might get a "cut" version but I am not sure)

* online as the retail version, but that is no longer possible (since D3 is only sold on Steam, see above).

* drive over the border and buy it there, or order it online from someplace else (which becomes rather hard with so many shops now checking your IP and delivering you a "german" version of their shop :(

 

You might be able to get a "bargain bin version" somehow, but these are rather rare (and/or non-existing).

Are you sure about that? I think you can still buy it online without problems (if you're 18).

I don't think any online shop besides steam carriers it, but the 18+ applies, anyway. (And buying online +18 alway entails registering and extra costs just for registering yourself with the store. I think it is 2 or 5 € extra plus some stuff like mailing in a form or a copy of your ID papers).

Ah, yes, the Saturn version must be new, I remember now a collegue of mine told me he bought it a few weeks ago, but I forgot whether it was on Steam or in a shop and assumed it was via Steam (as I know he has Steam and already asked me if TDM runs on the Steam version :)

 

After v1.0 I can convince him to try TDM :)

      Sometimes life throws a curveball - other times it straight up tries to take you outta the game. Been one thing after another lately but I ain't goin without a fight!

      Did I mention how absolutely grateful I am that TDM didn't get (and can never be) assimilated by a huge company like Microsoft, as is what happened to Minecraft?
