    Im stuck in Hell

    how do you beat the guardian? I kill those flying flashlights then I hit him. I do this until I run out of ammo on all my guns. I even use the bfg at full charge at close range right after i killed the flying things.

    Am I missing something?

    I tried googling this but all the guides haven't gotten this far yet.

    Please help me

    when u get rid of the spotlights, a blue orb thing appears on the guardian's back. u have to rocket that orb. do it like 3 times. and he's dead. none of the bosses were hard

    Well i beat him (which was pretty easy once you know where to hit)

    Now im on the next level which so far sucks. Too many strong monsters and they took away all my stuff again

    I can't play this game for more then a few hours before i get pissed off or bored.

    the good way to play is beat it once with no cheats, then cheat like a mofo. god mode and kill all with a chainsaw. fun as hell

    This is just becoming another genral topic, this should be JUST for posting tips nothing else&#33;
    good point, we all asked to get some seperate topics no point in using them all to dump all sorts of stuff.

    I am not sure but I think this should go here

    link to more mods, map etc

    make me get off my lazy ass, damn u guys , but i&#39;ll post the previous tweaks i posted in my other doom3 thread, which was unpinned:

    tweak number 1 (gives u probably the biggest FPS boost, i changes the settings so most of it is high, but this setting is guaranteed 60 FPS avg on med end comps.)

    change the vars around until u find the "perfect" setting, but sometimes it doesn&#39;t work as you can see for yourself if you head over to planetdoom forums. the "other tweak" you can try and see for yourself, it sure did do some miracles on my crappy comp:

    note note note warning note&#33;&#33; these are Image Settings for 128mb Video Cards note, if you have 64mb card, replace 512 with 256 or a lower number, i&#39;m not sure wat the number is for 64mb cards, but experiment damn u&#33; also note where it says width and height, change to watever u want but make sure it&#39;s "selectable" in doom3 as in dont give random numbers, take "prefixed" ones like 640x480 or 800x600 etc etc

    1) open up notepad and copy and paste this into it:

    2) (COPY ALL BELOW THIS SENTENCE):


    bind * "exec autoexec.cfg"

    seta com_showFPS "1"

    seta ui_showGun "1"

    seta ui_autoReload "0"

    seta ui_autoSwitch "1"

    seta g_fov "100"


    seta image_downSizeLimit "512"
    seta image_ignoreHighQuality "1"
    seta image_downSizeBumpLimit "512"
    seta image_downSizeSpecularLimit "64"
    seta image_downSizeBump "0"
    seta image_downSizeSpecular "1"
    seta image_downSize "1"
    seta image_forceDownSize "1"
    seta image_anisotropy "0"
    seta image_filter "GL_LINEAR_MIPMAP_NEAREST"


    seta r_shadows "0"
    seta r_skipbump "0"
    seta r_skipspecular "1"
    seta r_skipoverlays "0"
    seta r_skipfoglights "0"
    seta r_skippostprocess "1"
    seta r_skipbendlights "0"
    seta r_skipdynamictextures "0"

    //you can change this to whatever you want, this setting works really well, also you can try 640x480, mine is running at 1024x768
    seta r_customWidth "800"
    seta r_customHeight "600"


    seta pm_runbob "0"
    seta pm_runpitch "0"
    seta pm_runroll "0"
    seta pm_bobpitch "0"
    seta pm_bobroll "0"
    seta pm_bobup "0"
    seta pm_crouchbob "0"
    seta pm_walkbob "0"


    3) don&#39;t copy this line or anything below it&#33;&#33;&#33; just the above bolded "code" portion. paste the code into notepad and save it as a cfg (config) file (use the dropdown thingy that says "save as type ". name the file watever u want, i like to call it performace.cfg (don&#39;t forget to add the extension .cfg or it wont work&#33;&#33; save in the base folder (where the doomconfig.cfg file is also found)

    4) run doom3 like normal, start up a level, bring down the console, and then type (note, replace performance with watever u named the cfg file):

    exec performace.cfg (then hit enter) by the time u hit enter and if everything goes accordingly, it should say something like execing performance.cfg or something like that to acknowledge the process is underway (u SHOULDN&#39;T get an error, ur looking for a confirmation)

    5) now, if you really want to (i recommend it), type vid_restart and hit enter

    6) enjoy u lucky bastards, now, whos gonna gimme that cookie FOR REPOSTING THIS , hope this helps.

    go to ur "Base" folder within the doom3 directory (X:&#092;Activision&#092;Doom 3&#092;base)

    open up doomconfig.cfg with notepad/wordpad

    find the following 3 lines (use ctrl+f for faster finding):

    seta image_useCache "0"
    seta image_cacheMegs "x"
    seta image_cacheMinK "x"
    *
    (note: "x" as stated above can be any number, doesn&#39;t matter wat so ever)

    change it so it reads:

    seta image_useCache "1"
    seta image_cacheMegs "half or 1/3 of your ram"
    seta image_cacheMinK "20480"
    now, seta image_cacheMegs "half or 1/3 of your ram" is a diff. kind of varchar, "half or 1/3 of your ram" should be replaced by a number of 1/3 or 1/2 of your TOTAL RAM, my total ram is (right now, new comp still not built) is 640 MB RAM and my seta image_cacheMegs reads as follows:

    seta image_cacheMegs "304"

    MAKE SURE YOU CHANGE "half or 1/3 of your ram" to a different number

    save the file (ctrl+s), enjoy the FPS boost, worked for most ppl.
