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 :)

      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.
