Doom 3 to use Quake 3 Engine

In defense of the use of the Quake 3 engine for Doom 3, Jim Dose, one of the leading programmers claimed that the engine will be stripped and rewritten string by string.

In reply to eager gamers, Jim Dose claims that there are new things to be expected of the engine, in the words of the man himself:

" The engine is being completely rewritten, just piece-by-piece. Currently, the renderer, shader system, and game code are completely new. The cgame and network code have been removed. The animation system is currently being written from the ground up. The sound system and UI are still in place, but will be rewritten by Graeme and Robert when they are finished with the mission pack. At some point along the way, John will probably write a new network system.

So, even though we are not starting out with a blank sheet of paper, the final result will be a full rewrite."

both Unreal and Quake 3 were good games there is no need to make stupid posts simply for the sake of looking like a mindless fool. As for the news that Doom3 uses Quake3 as a base...I'm not overly surprised, this idea will allow them to test the code much better during the developement, and make for MUCH easier de-bugging.

Actually, I think anyone who bashes a game for no particular reason is flat-out gay and deserves anal reaming. I think Counterstrike Rocks. I was never a fan of the Quake series of games, but are pretty neat, and we wouldn't have some games we have these days if it weren't for them. Sin has really nice MP play too. Just so overlooked. Unreal rocks total ass all the way around. Team-play against bots is even really nice. I still play Kingpin online as well..it's just hilarious. I've been waiting for Duke Nukem Forever, well, forever. Can't wait!

well, well, well... a big jerk n ' MOFO called himself as anonymous hate niggaz!, well i think it's too bad pal's coz i'm a nigga n' i don't have this kindda feelins ya know?...by the way, i hope doom 3 with the base of Q3 code can be a real good FPS game, however, ID software may have a MOFO ace in his pocket coz the developers inside this comp. has been developin' something long time ago... so we'll see tomorrow when the game comes true!...I'm a Q3 lover, however i love UT too, so, i don't know how all of you make this kindda shit.... ¡both games r' real good buddies!, i said!

Personally, I never liked the Doom series. I did however enjoy the quake series for some reason or another. Isn't it annoying that all we have these days is just sequals? I think the third game in the Doom series really is being released to late and is not needed at all. Counterstrike rocks!

The way you people are arguing I think you are all pathetic. I have no problem with them using the Quake 3 engine, so long as they can decrease the loading times for everyone that doesn't have a PIII 1,000 Mhz computer.

You guys need to chill out and take it easy with the game bashing.I like UT and Quake 3 as well as Half-life. They are all good so y not play allof them instead of comparing them all the time. I mean who cares which game is betteror which system is better. Just play the games you enjoy and dont worry about the ones you dontjust chill

Doom 3 to use Quake 3 Engine

I play all games- a create my own- ki engeneer , wizzard of sound, and awesome in grafix- it does not matter what people think- what they do is important. play the game- i know its not objective but my feeling is that with id soft there are some kind of magic- ut hl sof df - are games- are 3d are shot ems . but the essence of the game lives in idsoft. its like blizzards starcraft i dont like these games- think - having time- alway slow and beeing sure what to do- I WANT SOME ACTION. i dont think that to push a button to open a door inholds that thing of action I am talking about. im not here to **** god or the skull of jesus, iam here to thank idsoft- keep going- since kommander keen until now- its magic..and the only thing i dont know-- where to get this great 16:9 screen - they use to build there level... who knows the label, the producer- where to get this stuffcu in the future - where the forth dimension - the time - will be gone in the games. get ready for the most evel hardcore game ever exist and pray that you will survive.
