    I love the new UT and from what I've played it seems much more fun than DOOM.

    Still excited about DOOM beta, just to see how Vulkan runs. Those benchmarks I've seen are very promising, extremely high minimum fps :D

    Yeah, I know it also supports Vulkan. But, the base code for the engine, like all idTech engines, is OpenGL.

    Same thing in my mind, although, I prefer the name Vulkan.

    True.. anyhow looking forward to test open beta tomorrow.

    I just hope that 15hr SP gameplay holds true..My avg doom3 time was ~20hrs and that was fast playtrough.
    When I saw a small doom4 SP preview there wasnt much talk about lvl diversety unlike by doom3.. It seemed like 4 - 5 areas and that's it.

    We could just bug the hell out of them and force them to expand Snapmap until we can remake all the old Doom levels to our heart's content! :knock:

    Then, everyone's happy and id get to make another game for us. :nerd:

    Last time I played Doom 3, I think I finished it in about 8 hours.
    But, that's after years of replaying and replaying. I've lost so many hours to the game.
    But my first time through was easily a 20+ hour experience.

    As for environment variety... id have specified three distinct areas for the new Doom.
    The more industrial settings. Cleaner, up scale science facilities. And Hell.
    Chances are there will be distinctions between specific settings inside each of those three areas.

    Lets see...
    Doom 3 had... the opening area/science labs (which did go on longer then they should've).

    The monorail section, while similar did offer up some different art and texture styles.

    The recycling areas. Again, more grimy, run down and rusted looking.

    Hell

    Older, out dated science labs.

    And the ruins.

    The console seems locked down, the advanced options menu is greyed out, seems locked at 60 fps again. thats bull**** because the bfg edition wasnt and it ran fine. ****ing devs anchoring the physics to the frame rate, what is it, they said they want the same experience across all platforms. its ****ing 2016, doom coming out what, 12-13 years ago? id like to play at 120 fps, once you go 120 fps, everything changes. Also i hope this will really be tweakable. I remember them saying no modding tools, besides map snap (being heavily locked down to snap n place), will be released on pc.

    I remember the guy being interviewed by Geoff Keightly and he was talking about the radial menu and Keightly whipped out a awesome burn "i personally love using the numpad" and the dude like ****ing short cicuited "....uh.. well you can do that too.

    It just works.

    Config is in USERNAME\Saved Games\idSoftware\Doom_OpenBeta

    oh wow, its encrypted. No cfg files of any kind.

    It just works.

    So I just launched the game. I got a warning that the following sequence may stutter on nvidia gpus.

    Warning has been there for exactly 90 seconds.

    LOL.
    Great game.

    10/10 would be warned again :p

    Solid 60fps in the menu though, I guess that counts for something

    Considering the beta doesn't start until tomorrow... it's not surprising the servers are offline.

    The full game will support multiple FPS settings.

    Yeah well, since they're adding maps and weapons as paid DLC I won't be gracing myself with the possibility to play the full game :p

    So, because they are doing the same thing every other FPS with a MP component does with it's DLC... that makes Doom not good enough?

    Okay. Just trying to be clear.

    I'll pass that adhd mGPU-less MP-fest, I'll consider it when it supports mgpu in Vulkan or openGL (what's it gonna be?) to play the SP, but i've seen no SP footage though. Otherwise I stay with Sikkmod (also no mgpu due CF&Sikkmodd :D)
