A quickie Duct Tape modification for DOOM 3 is now available. The mod addresses the absence of this essential tool and provides the ability to attach your flashlight to your machine gun.

the argument about the flashlight hilighting the new lighting tech is akin to taking huge pictures of red apples and yellow bananas when color photography was first introduced

after people got past the obvious, inspirational works were created

now that we have a boring, overly-long tech-demo of lighting, perhaps a real developer with imagination will crank out a masterpiece

Yeah, but who's fault is that? It's the gamers. If you don't have the self control not to use it, don't whine about it later.

Not entirely, some games rely on you quicksaving, having poor autosave locations. Plus sometimes you don't even realize you are doing it! I need to be saved from myself!

This is the only problem I have with the game. Who in their right mind wouldn't have a flashlight on all the time in a situation like demons invading in the dark. I would find whatever way I could to resolve that problem. Switching between a flashlight and gun only serves to remind I'm playing a games and ruins the imersion, reducing the gaming experince.

The first MOD crew to come up with a GRAPPLING HOOK will forever be my heros. God I miss playing Quake/Quake 2 CTF with the grappling hook.

My woman would prefer to light my computer on fire and be done with it. She got into Myst for a short time, but that was the closest thing to getting her to play first person. She digs some of the Xbox games, but very few. Mostly the older arcade style stuff.

I just spent 3k building a new Uber Athlon 64 FX-53 machine, and her new favorite thing to do is play freaking SOLITARE on it, just to piss me off.

Last night i walk into my office and see her sitting at my desk and I say.... Can you NOT play solitare on my $3000 gaming machine, when you have a perfectly good computer of your own to play it on? She simply says "No".

Gotta love 'em.

He cut the possum's face off then cut around the eye socket. In the center of the belt buckle, where the possum's eye would be, he has placed a small piece of wood from his old '52 Ford's home made railroad tie bumper. Damn, he misses that truck.

She never 'got' Half-Life, preferring to shoot the scientists...

Thats funny, mine did the exact same thing.

The thing is she likes to shoot things, and right now shes not too worried about the story of whatever game she plays. you should have seen her in half life though.

She got pissed off at the hazard course due to its length and tons of content, and then got pissed off when riding down the big elevator with all the face huggers falling down after her. We called it a day after that.

oddly enough i was reading penny arcade and Tycho made the comment that Doom 3 will make true gamers out of non-believers. I came home later that day and she was slowly working her way through the intro to D3.

She gets pissed at the flashlight switching and darkness but this mod and a bit of gamma adjustment should sort that out. i figure the more training she gets with this and Q3 the safer i will be in buying expensive graphics cards!

I mean to think -- he can hold 10 weapons but can't hold 10 different flashlights to strap onto every weapon?
Yeah I was wondering that too

Many of you complain and whine so much about this whole flashlight thing. One of the big selling points of Doom is the new dynamic lighting technology. If you constantly had a light (or even worse, nightvision) the whole backbone of the game would be lost. It was a game design decision, not some overlooked detail.

And if you want to look around with a flashlight, well now you can with this mod. I really don't understand why there is always fussing back and forth about this game. If you want the light, download the mod (there have been times I wish I could use my pistol and my light). If you want to play the game with a more suspensful approach don't get the mod. End of story.

The FNG does not wear the Marine Helmet - which is a full face system with integrated display (likely has multiplie vision modes). In the Cut Scenes the other marines are wearing a HighTech helmet, but our FNG does not.

I want to see the Sentry Bot Flashlight mod. Each sentry bot carries a flashlight instead of a Chain Gun. Watch mutiple light sources follow you around and wreck your frame rate



/No one commented on my previous post #6 mentioning this

im getting my g/f into gaming with Q3 and now Doom3
Good call with the choice of games - it strikes me as funny that whenever games come into my conversations with my girl mates, that games that are perhaps perceived as more 'girl orientated' (Sims, etc) are not what they wish to play. I had a girlfriend who was an Atomic Bomberman obsessive, although she was truly awful at it. She never 'got' Half-Life, preferring to shoot the scientists... still, we all played through HL at least once doing that

"All I ever think, though, is wouldn't night vision be standard that far in the future in that dim a base?"

id should have some prize patrol that searches for the 400 billionth person who makes a joke about 'technology so far in the future but no flashlight on guns? lollers!' and awards them a million dollars for being so funny and insightful!

Thank god we have people like this to point out the potential 'real-life' short comings of a video game that features demons and portals to hell. Without you, surely id would not realize how ungrounded they are in reality. I mean to think -- he can hold 10 weapons but can't hold 10 different flashlights to strap onto every weapon? LOL! John Carmack is such an idiot.

The game is ridiculously easy in the lowest two settings, though

im playing though it on hard, its tough and u have to keep a mental note of where health is incase u need to backtrack too it, but its still pretty damn fun.

IMO the duct tape mod doesent ruin anything as its only on your machine gun.

In many ways it adds an extra dimension to the game (heh) as you have to be even more carefull with your weapons, do u take the safe route of using the machine gun, but being screwed in close quarters, or use shotgun/flashlight combo and hope u can switch in time. of course the other problem ive seen with this mod is that u easily over use the machine gun and suddenly the mod isnt that usefull!

anyways, thats just my 2cents. i dont think the mod detracts from the game one bit.

I haven't looked at the mod yet, but there are some scripting files in the .paks, so if you take a look at those you'll see some neat stuff. That's likely how this one was done.

DOOM3World.org is one place I know that has a lot of tutorials, so check them out.

It's the distant future, we have high tech weapons. We went to the past to design our Mach-2 Gattling gun. But we couldn't figure out how to put a tac. light on a pistol.

Most games with quicksaves lose the tension because its hey I can just save after every jump or after every enemy I've shot.

Yeah, but who's fault is that? It's the gamers. If you don't have the self control not to use it, don't whine about it later.




I will think peaceful, happy thoughts about my new video card, in hopes that it will work.
