Yes, this is the real thing. This is the leaked demo for Doom III. We've played it and it rocks, check out our screenshots.

This E3 Doom III demo contains three playable levels and is available through different file sharing programs. Some are legitimate and some are not, therefore download at your own risk.

Instructions for playing Doom 3 demo:

1. Visit http://www.rarlab.com and download WinRAR version 3.0. After you download WinRAR, install it. Open the rar file for Doom 3 which you downloaded (doom_iii.rar) using WinRAR. Once the file is open in WinRAR, click the "Extract To" button, choose a directory to extract the game to, and hit "ok." After the files are done extracting, open the folder which you extracted it too, and go on to step 2.

2. In your Doom_IIIbase directory, open the runact.cfg file.

3. Comment out the last line. In other words, add the "#" sign in front of the string "devmap $e3_intro" so it looks like the following:

#devmap $e3_intro

4. Launch the game using the main exe file.

5. Press the tilde key (~) to bring down the console (just like Q3)

6. Type the following: exec runact.cfg

7. Hit enter, and wait. Seriously, it takes about 5 mins to load all the everything.

8. Once it is done, you can launch the intro movie, or play yourself.

9. From the console, use the following commands:
map e3/intro (Loads intro movie)
map e3/e3_1 (Loads first map)
map e3/e3_2 (Loads second map)
map e3/e3_3 (Loads third map)
map fred/e3bathroom5 (won't work for some people)

Changing controls:
From the console, type: bindlist

This will list all the currently bound keys and their functions. Use the page up and page down keys to scroll through the list. The controls for standard movement are not bound to the regular WASD config, so type the following to put it back to normal:
bind w _forward
bind s _back
bind a _moveleft
bind d _moveright

Checking FPS: type com_drawfps 1

If you experience any problems, please go to the MegaGames Forums and post your questions there. http://www.mgforums.com

Doom III Leaked Demo!

yeah i got the doom 3 leaked demo and it runs well on my AMD athlon xp 2500 (running at 1833Mhz). it looks sweet with a ATI radeon 9600se. and anyone wondering where it is its on imesh its hard to find but its there.

Doom III Leaked Demo!

@JACKO, Yeah, i have heard of some guys running ungodly systems getting somewhat decent performance, but i doubt it, The system i actually have is pretty bad ass, and my cousins even more so, and it still has problems. Mostly when monster and other AI are present ETC. ALong with scripted sequences. I can get FPS in the high 50's, but when monsters arrive , it chugs pretty bad. But i dont care, Just cant imagine what the final game will be like :) looking forward to it VERY much.

Listen, if anybody has a Fx5200 and is wondering why it is running bad is because u wasted a 100 bucks on a card that is slower than a Geforce2mx200. Also anybody with a Celeron is screwed to, a 1ghz P3 is faster than a 2.4ghz celeron. Also Doom 3 is not DX9 it is OpenGL2.0. So to play it with all the shaders and decent FPS and things you will need a Geforce FX 5600+ series card or a Radeon 9500+. With atleast a p42.0ghz or a AMD Xp2400+.

Jorma your gay..ok now that we got that out of the way...even though this will not run good on any computer right now it runs 93.8 fps maxed with every option with a ti4600 and the new nv30 runs it at around 173 fps with every option maxed according to the nvidia nv30 presentation given at the unveiling of the NV30 So no worries we dont need to upgrade but im gonna anyways the NV30 is amazing just goto nvidia.com and watch the movies and put on a pair of diapers before ya do....goodbye ATI

I have the answers to most of your questions. For the first half of you that are looking for the demo...I can't give the exact location because it would be shut down, but I can tell you that I found it within an hour using Google and reading Doom III forums. I found a direct download site that broke the download up into 24 .rar files that are each about 20 mb. I got about 60 kbps from this site and it didn't take any time at all to download the whole thing. The version that I found was the Beta 2 (newest release). Now for the rest of you that are running into either a flashing grey screen or just a solid grey screen, I have the answser for you too. You will first need to download the latest driver for your card (even if you are using a Geforce). After that is installed, you will need to download a program called "RiveTuner". This is an emulation program that is made to simulate other cards. Once you install this program, Go to the main menu ->driversettings->customize->Open GL-> compatibility. From the drop down menu, select nv40 emulation. Hit apply and you can run the Doom.exe file and you're good to go! This should fix most of the problems that people are having on this forum...

The comments here are a perfect example of how stupid gamers are. Don't say you can't open a config file, because I know you can!Chances are if you're posting how you can't find a working download link, you didn't look anywhere outside megagames. Use any search engine and I guarantee it'll bring up dozens of links. Maybe a handful will have the demo for download. Learn to open your damn eyes and shut you stupid non english speaking mouths.DO NOT use Kazaa! I repeat, DO NOT USE KAZAA! Do you want spyware installed onto your computer? Download Kazaa. If you want to stop being an idiot join an IRC channel and ask somebody to send it. There are tons of them.

LoL! Jorma Pllleaze, that sux.*Clear Throat*I have a:-Dual 2 Gighz P4s (Power Drainage galore)shoulda gotten AMD for that but whatever.-1512 Megs of ram.-80Gig HD-10MB/s Connection.-Oh and GeForce 4 Ti4600 (Might get the new one before Doom 3 comes out).So please dont brag, it makes you look dumb when someone else has something better to brag about. So "Jorma your gay.."

Doom III Leaked Demo!

i finished downloading it on my 56K yesterday :) was it worth it? probably not - I have a fairly decent computer, and when fighting enemies i got about 0 fps!!!! lol. its like watching a slideshow of screenshots. so if i could give some advice - if you don't have a p4 2.8gHz with radeon 9700 pro card, and 1024 MB of ram, then i'd spend my time downloading screenshots and promo movies instead, and wait for the demo to come out - 'id' will probably push for a closer release date for the demo now that this leak has occurred

hey Jorma, there's always a bigger fish, my XP 2000 is overclocked so it runs an 2200 speeds, which is as fast as P4 2200MHZ. Overclocked GF4 Ti 4400 to run a Ti 4600 speed. 11250 3D marks it only cost $1100 to build because I spent weeks finding which websites have the lowest prices for each individual part. I know there are plenty of computers out there faster than mine and anyone who has posted something. The record score for 3D Mark 2001 is 20045 3D Marks!!! Fooye on the record, cause it was made with a ATi card, as soon as the FX comes out, thats sure to change. If the demo runs slow, don't think you need to upgrade, the demo isn't a demo, it's part of the game designed to run on only the creaters computer using his specialized software. The demo (leaked keep that in mind) is crap. The game isn't anything spectacular, it's game engin has alot to offer, but I think it is the same old story. From the previews, it doesn't even have multiplayer!!! The creators even said it was somewhat limited as to gameplay, I score games by three things, graphics, gamplay, and the physics of the game. I rate it 10 in graphics, 5 in gameplay, 9 in physics. out of 30 points, I rate it at 24. Remember, don't sit there and say beat that, cause somebody will!!!

hey guys listen when i try that rivetuner thing i get like a black screen but it has some screwed up colors in it i need help. i tried it with nv20 and 30 emu but it gets to map and saysmap e3/e3_1 .96 is out of date: i need freaking help!

Doom III Leaked Demo!

Everybody, don't get all mad if you can't get the demo, or it doesn't work, I played it and believe me there are better games, not graphically, but in every other aspect there are better games. Besides, a official demmo is bound to come out, then it will work fine. If one doesn't, that will make the game all that much better when you finally do get it.
