    I don't, I may after I get a spiffy computer. I wonder if they'll take advantage of 64-bit...

    I stopped into Best Buy the other day while tC was getting tinted, and stopped in my tracks.....I was hoping to see "Linux Disk Inside" on the box, but oh well. Im not a gamer, but I'll buy THIS game.

    I hear it's unplayable unless you have the latest and greatest everything.

    Yeah, I got it 3 days ago. It's fun. I'm not in absolute awe though.

    the greatest flaw with doom3 in my opinion it the constent dark just get's annoying after a while, there should be greater variation in the light, but it's playable on my machine.
    1.4 ghz amd thunderbird, 512 ddr, geforce 4 128 ddr
    but I do strongly recommend more ram

    There is a setting in the config file that you can change to make it run more smoothly on middle of the road machines. Its something like ram_cache 32, you can set it to 256 or so, depending on the amount of ram you have. Google should be able to give the details.

    Agreed

    -edit-

    Ha, I just stumbled onto this on Blues News

    http://ducttape.glenmurphy.com/

    Under the crazy presumption that a roll of duct tape has to exist somewhere on the Mars facility, the Duct Tape mod allows you to do the obvious, and stick a flashlight onto to your machinegun.
    I was darn close to complaining that there's no tactical flashlight.
