  1. LICENSE

See COPYING.txt for the GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE

ADDITIONAL TERMS: The Doom 3 BFG Edition GPL Source Code is also subject to certain additional terms. You should have received a copy of these additional terms immediately following the terms and conditions of the GNU GPL which accompanied the Doom 3 BFG Edition GPL Source Code. If not, please request a copy in writing from id Software at id Software LLC, c/o ZeniMax Media Inc., Suite 120, Rockville, Maryland 20850 USA.


  1. GETTING THE SOURCE CODE

This project's GitHub.net Git repository can be checked out through Git with the following instruction set:

> git clone https://github.com/MadDeCoDeR/Classic-RBDOOM-3-BFG.git

If you don't want to use git, you can download the source as a zip file at https://github.com/MadDeCoDeR/Classic-RBDOOM-3-BFG/archive/master.zip


  1. COMPILING ON WIN32 WITH VISUAL C++ 2013 EXPRESS EDITION OR NEWER VERSIONS

  1. Download and install the Visual C++ 2013 Express Edition or newer Versions of Visual Studio Community.

(NOTE: If you install it with Visual Studio Installer make sure to check "Desktop Development in C++")

  1. Download and install DirectX SDK:

    a. For DirectX SDK (June 2010): It should be available with the game files of DOOM 3 BFG Edition, or you can download the Steam Common Redistributable from Steam.

    b. For alternative DirectX SDK: For Xinput and DirectInput, they are usually installed with Visual Studio Community, but you can also find and download Windows SDK based on the version of Windows you are using. For XAudio2, the only 2 alternatives are either the Windows 8 or later SDKs or XAudio2.9 which requires to download and set on your user/system PATH the nuget CLI Package Manager

  2. Download and install the latest CMake (recommended 3.8 for compile and run out of the box).

  3. Generate the VC projects using CMake by doubleclicking a matching configuration .bat file in the neo/ folder.

  4. Use the VC solution to compile what you need: Classic-RBDOOM-3-BFG/build(Lib&cpuType)/DoomBFA.sln

(NOTE: The pre-built binaries are made wth buildAL(x64/x86))

  1. Download the latest stable ffmpeg shared from https://github.com/BtbN/FFmpeg-Builds/releases (only 64-bit available)
  2. Extract the FFmpeg DLLs to your current game directory

NOTE: The Working Directory has been set the default install directory of DOOM 3 BFG Edition on C: drive NOTE 2: Compiling and running it under Visual Studio Debugger it also requires to run the game on windowed mode (VS Debugger + Fullscreen = not a good mix) so you must Right Click on RBDoom3BFG Solution in Solution Explorer go to Properties select Debugging and put on Command Arguments +set r_fullscreen "0"


  1. COMPILING ON GNU/LINUX

  1. You need the following dependencies in order to compile RBDoom3BFG with all features:

    On Debian or Ubuntu:

     > apt-get install cmake libsdl2-dev libopenal-dev libavcodec-dev libavformat-dev libavutil-dev libswscale-dev
    

    On Fedora

     // ffmpeg-devel is found in the rpm-fusion repo. Can be enabled from Gnome Software if not already enabled
     
     > dnf install cmake SDL2-devel openal-devel ffmpeg-devel gcc-c++
    

    On ArchLinux

     > sudo pacman -S sdl2 ffmpeg openal cmake
    

    On openSUSE (tested in 13.1)

     > zypper in openal-soft-devel cmake libSDL-devel libffmpeg1-devel
    
     For SDL 2 replace "libSDL-devel" with "libSDL2-devel".
     "libffmpeg1-devel" requires the PackMan repository. If you don't have that repo, and don't want to add it, remove the "libffmpeg1-devel" option and compile without ffmpeg support.
     If you have the repo and compiles with ffmpeg support, make sure you download "libffmpeg1-devel", and not "libffmpeg-devel".
    

    Instead of SDL2 development files you can also use SDL1.2. Install SDL 1.2 and add to the cmake parameters -DSDL2=OFF

    SDL2 has better input support (especially in the console) and better support for multiple displays (especially in fullscreen mode).

  2. Generate the Makefiles using CMake:

    cd neo/ ./cmake-linux-profile.sh(recommended retail profile)

  3. Compile RBDOOM-3-BFG targets with

    cd ../build make

    or

    make -j (for faster compiles)


  1. INSTALLATION, GETTING THE GAMEDATA, RUNNING THE GAME

If you use the prebuilt Win32 binaries then simply extract them to your C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Doom 3 BFG Edition\ directory and run DoomBFA.exe.

The following instructions are primarily intented for Linux users and all hackers on other operating systems.

To play the game, you need the game data from a legal copy of the game.

It requires Steam or GOG Windows Installer.

Even the DVD version of Doom 3 BFG only contains encrytped data that is decoded by Steam on install.

Steam:

On Steam for Linux you right click on the game in your library and select Properties, from there just check the last check box you will see and then right click it again and select install. To get the game files just right click on the game select Properties -> local files -> Browse local files.

Alternatively on Linux and OSX the easiest way to install is with SteamCMD: https://developer.valvesoftware.com/wiki/SteamCMD See the description on https://developer.valvesoftware.com/wiki/SteamCMD#Linux (OS X is directly below that) on how to install SteamCMD on your system. You won't have to create a new user.

Then you can download Doom 3 BFG with

./steamcmd.sh +@sSteamCmdForcePlatformType windows +login <YOUR_STEAM_LOGIN_NAME> +force_install_dir ./doom3bfg/ +app_update 208200 validate +quit

(replace <YOUR_STEAM_LOGIN_NAME> with your steam login name) When it's done you should have the normal windows installation of Doom 3 BFG in ./doom3bfg/ and the needed files in ./doom3bfg/base/ That number is the "AppID" of Doom 3 BFG; if you wanna use this to get the data of other games you own, you can look up the AppID at https://steamdb.info/

NOTE that we've previously recommended using download_depot in the Steam console to install the game data. That turned out to be unreliable and result in broken, unusable game data. So use SteamCMD instead, as described above. GOG:

Alternatively with the GOG installer, you can use Wine to install the game. See https://winehq.org/download for details on how to install wine for Linux and Mac.

Once Wine is installed and configured on your system install Doom 3 BFG edition using the downloaded installers from gog.com:

wine setup_doom_3_bfg_1.14_(13452)_(g).exe

(there will be several .exe files from GOG, make sure all of them are in the same directory)

Once this is complete, by default you can find your Doom 3 BFG "base/" directory at ".wine/drive_c/GOG\ Games/DOOM\ 3\ BFG/base".

Extra:

Additionally in Ubuntu you can open the RBDoom3BFG file with the text editor and add the missing paths on it and save it as .desktop. This will give you a desktop shortcut for Ubuntu. (NOTE: I don't know if other operating systems support this file)

Also you can install www.mono-project.com. Which allow you to use CDL.exe natively on linux. After you have install mono, download the latest release of this project and extract the CDL.exe in the same directory DoomBFA is.

Anyway:

  1. Install Doom 3 BFG in Steam (Windows version) or SteamCMD, make sure it's getting updated/patched.

  2. Create your own Doom 3 BFG directory, e.g. /path/to/Doom3BFG/

  3. Copy the game-data's base dir from Steam to that directory (e.g. /path/to/Doom3BFG/), it's in /your/path/to/Steam/steamapps/common/DOOM 3 BFG Edition/base/ or, if you used SteamCMD, in the path you used above.

  4. Copy your DoomBFA executable that you created in 5) or 6) and the FFmpeg DLLs to your own Doom 3 BFG directory (/path/to/Doom3BFG).

    Your own Doom 3 BFG directory now should look like: /path/to/Doom3BFG/ -> DoomBFA (or DoomBFA.exe on Windows) -> avcodec-58.dll -> avformat-58.dll -> avutil-56.dll -> swresample-3.dll -> swscale-5.dll

  5. Copy paste the base directory from the source code directory to the base directory on your own Doom 3 BFG directory (/path/to/Doom3BFG).

(Optional if you want EAX on Doom 3) Download this addon https://www.moddb.com/mods/classic-rbdoom-3-bfg-edition/downloads/roe-addon and extract it to the directory on your own Doom 3 BFG directory (/path/to/Doom3BFG)

  1. Run the game by executing the DoomBFA executable.

  2. Enjoy

  3. If you run into bugs, please report them, see 11)

Additionally for the Final DOOM wads you must legally own them (either aquired from retail,steam or GOG) and then copy the two WADs on the /path/to/Doom3BFG/base/wads.

And for the Master Levels you must legally own them (either aquired from retail,steam or GOG), make a folder named "master" on /path/to/Doom3BFG/base/wads and copy all the 20 wad files on this folder.

Otherwise the game wont let you play this expansions (because there are no files dah)

For the zBFA.resources:

  1. Copy paste zBFA folder to your own Doom 3 BFG directory (/path/to/Doom3BFG) (Optional) Copy paste the base/renderprogs folder in the zBFA folder

  2. Open DoomBFA.exe with the launch argument +set com_allowConsole 1

  3. Open Doom 3 and activate the console (press ~ key)

  4. Type writeresourcefilewithdir zBFA

  5. Copy paste from C:\Users<username>\Saved Games\Id Software\DOOM BFA\base\zBFA.resources to your own Doom 3 BFG directory (/path/to/Doom3BFG) \base\maps


  1. OVERALL CHANGES

  • Flexible build system using CMake

  • Linux support (32 and 64 bit)

  • Win64 support

  • OS X support

  • OpenAL Soft sound backend primarily developed for Linux but works on Windows as well

  • Bink video support through FFmpeg

  • PNG image support

  • Soft shadows using PCF hardware shadow mapping

    The implementation uses sampler2DArrayShadow and PCF which usually requires Direct3D 10.1 however it is in the OpenGL 3.2 core so it should be widely supported. All 3 light types are supported which means parallel lights (sun) use scene independent cascaded shadow mapping. The implementation is very fast with single taps (400 fps average per scene on a GTX 660 ti OC) however I defaulted it to 12 taps using a Poisson disc algorithm so the shadows look really good which should give you stable 100 fps on todays hardware (2014).

  • Changed light interaction shaders to use Half-Lambert lighting like in Half-Life 2 to make the game less dark. https://developer.valvesoftware.com/wiki/Half_Lambert

  • True 64 bit HDR lighting with adaptive tone mapping and gamma-correct rendering in linear RGB space

  • Enhanced Subpixel Morphological Antialiasing For more information see "Anti-Aliasing Methods in CryENGINE 3" and the docs at http://www.iryoku.com/smaa/

  • Filmic post process effects like Technicolor color grading and film grain

  • Additional ambient render pass to make the game less dark similar to the Quake 4 r_forceAmbient technique


  1. CONSOLE VARIABLES

Check here: https://github.com/MadDeCoDeR/Classic-RBDOOM-3-BFG/wiki/3.-New-Parameters


  1. KNOWN ISSUES

None.


  1. BUG REPORTS

DOOM-BFA is not perfect, it is not bug free as every other software. For fixing as much problems as possible we need as much bug reports as possible. We cannot fix anything if we do not know about the problems.

The best way for telling us about a bug is by submitting a bug report at our GitHub bug tracker page:

https://github.com/MadDeCoDeR/Classic-RBDOOM-3-BFG/issues?state=open

The most important fact about this tracker is that we cannot simply forget to fix the bugs which are posted there. It is also a great way to keep track of fixed stuff.

If you want to report an issue with the game, you should make sure that your report includes all information useful to characterize and reproduce the bug.

* Search on Google
* Include the computer's hardware and software description ( CPU, RAM, 3D Card, distribution, kernel etc. )
* If appropriate, send a console log, a screenshot, an strace ..
* If you are sending a console log, make sure to enable developer output:

          DoomBFA.exe +set developer 1 +set logfile 2
		  
	You can find your qconsole.log on Windows in C:\Users\<your user name>\Saved Games\id Software\DOOM BFA\base\

NOTE: We cannot help you with OS-specific issues like configuring OpenGL correctly, configuring ALSA or configuring the network.


  1. GAME MODIFCATIONS

The Doom 3 BFG Edition GPL Source Code release allows mod editing, in order for it to accept any change in your mod directory, you should first specify your mod directory adding the following command to the launcher:

"+set fs_game modDirectoryName"

so it would end up looking like: DoomBFA +set fs_game modDirectoryName

Also now you can package your mod in .resource files for more info check: https://github.com/MadDeCoDeR/Classic-RBDOOM-3-BFG/wiki

Classic doom mods are enabled and can be used with the old "-file" parameter like this: RBDoom3BFG -file "classicmod.wad"

IMPORTANT: DOOM-BFA does not support old Doom 3 (2004) modiciations that include sourcecode modifications in binary form (.dll) You can fork DOOM-BFA and create a new binary (.dll) that includes all required C++ game code modifications.
