Release 1.5.2 of our Doom3 Sourceport.

Needs the original Doom3 (not BFG!) game data.
See https://dhewm3.org/ for more information

UPDATE 2022-06-13 13:32:19 UTC: Replaced dhewm3-mods_1.5.2_win32.zip - the original archive's d3le.dll was broken

Click to see changes since 1.5.1
  • Gamma and Brightness are now applied in the shaders instead of by setting hardware gamma.
    Can be disabled (so hardware gamma is used again) with r_gammaInShaders 0
  • Improvements for (Windows-only) MFC-based tools:
    • Added the script debugger! (thanks HarrievG!)
      Original Doom3 didn't have it (Quake4 did), but the Doom3 GPL source contained
      most of it. HarrievG implemented the missing parts and we added some new
      features. It can even be used over the network and while the client part
      (the debugger GUI) is Windows-only, the server can run on all supported
      platforms, so you can debug a game running on Linux or macOS, for example.
      Relevant CVars for network debugging are:
      com_enableDebuggerServer and com_dbgClientAdr and com_dbgServerAdr.
      To debug the running game on the same PC, just enter debugger in the console.
    • All tools can now be built in 64bit (thanks raynorpat!)
    • HighDPI support (thanks HarrievG!)
    • PDAEditor works now
    • Additional bugfixes
  • Cycle through multiple Quicksave slots instead of immediately overwriting the last
    Quicksave. The com_numQuicksaves CVar allows setting the number of QuickSaves (#392)
  • Make r_locksurfaces work (#357)
    It doesn't do exactly what its description and name suggests: it renders
    everything that is currently visible from the position/view the player had
    when setting r_locksurfaces 1. Originally it was supposed to render exactly
    the surfaces that were visible then, but I couldn't get that to work.
    This is pretty similar, but there may be differences with opened doors and such.
  • Keyboard input improvements (mostly SDL2-only):
    • Support (hopefully) all keyboard keys on all kinds of keyboard layouts
      by using scancodes for otherwise unknown keys
    • Support typing in non-ASCII characters, if supported by Doom3 (it supports ISO-8859-1)
    • Support the clipboard also on non-Windows platforms
      You can paste text from the clipboard into the console or other edit fields
      with Shift+Insert
    • Explicit support for Right Ctrl, Alt and Shift keys
      (can be bound to different actions than their left counterparts)
    • Added in_grabKeyboard CVar to make sure dhewm3 gets all keyboard input
      Prevents the Windows-key or Alt-Tab or whatever from taking focus from the game
    • Added in_ignoreConsoleKey - if set to 1, the console is only opened with
      Shift+Esc, and the "console key" (that key between Esc, 1 and Tab) can be freely
      bound to an action (and its char can be typed in the console without closing it).
    • Added (SDL2-only) "auto" option for in_kbd: When not disabling the console key,
      dhewm3 will try to automatically detect it if in_kbd is set to "auto" (now default)
  • Reworked mouse-input and -grabbing code, using absolute mouse mode in fullscreen GUIs
    (except for the PDA, because it's implemented weirdly).
    This made releasing the mouse in the main menu possible, as now the ingame cursor
    is at the same position as the system cursor.
  • s_alReverbGain CVar to reduce EFX reverb effect intensity (#365)
  • Pause (looped) sounds when entering menu (#330)
  • Fixes for looped sounds (#390)
  • Replace libjpeg with stb_image and libogg/libvorbis(file) with stb_vorbis
    • Now the only required external dependencies should be OpenAL, SDL, zlib
      and optionally libCURL (and of course the C and C++ runtimes)
  • (Optionally) use libbacktrace on non-Windows platforms for more useful
    backtraces in case of crashes (usually linked statically)
  • Fixed a deadlock (freeze) on Windows when printing messages from another thread
  • Fixed endless loop (game locking up at startup) if graphics settings couldn't be applied (#386)
  • Fixed some warnings and uninitialized variables (thanks turol!)
  • Work around dmap bug caused by GCC using FMA "optimizations" (#147)
  • Prevent dhewm3 from being run as root on Unix-like systems to improve security
  • Replaced most usages of strncpy() with something safer to prevent buffer overflows
    (remaining cases should be safe).
    • Just a precaution, I don't know if any of them could actually be exploited,
      but there were some compiler warnings in newer GCC versions.
  • Console output is now logged to dhewm3log.txt (last log is renamed to dhewm3log-old.txt)
    • On Windows it's in My Documents/My Games/dhewm3/
    • On Mac it's in $HOME/Library/Application Support/dhewm3/
    • On other Unix-like systems like Linux it's in $XDG_DATA_HOME/dhewm3/
      (usually $HOME/.local/share/dhewm3/)
  • Improved compatibility with Wayland (#426)
  • Work around assertion in AlphaLabs4 due to "ride_of_death" yeeting
    the dead "monster_zsec_shotgun_12" into the void (#409)
  • Support loading some mods known to need fs_game_base d3xp via Mods menu
    (currently, The Lost Mission and LibreCoop d3xp are supported)
  • Disable assertion in idSampleDecoderLocal::DecodeOGG() that triggered
    when starting a new Classic Doom3 game (#461)

Release Candidate 2 for the upcoming version 1.5.2 of our Doom 3 Sourceport

This is outdated, please use 1.5.2 instead.

Also providing updated mod DLLs!

Small Update: Added dhewm3_1.5.2rc2_win32_lighteditor-fix.zip which has a bugfix that makes the Lights Editor work in the D3Radiant (Windows-only level editor) again. It contains just dhewm3.exe, take the other files from dhewm3_1.5.2_RC2_win32.zip.

Needs the original Doom3 (not BFG!) game data.
See https://dhewm3.org/ for more information

  • Updated the code of all mods hosted in dhewm3-sdk repository with relevant changes from dhewm3. Corresponding binaries are in the dhewm3-mods_* archives you can download below.
  • The SDL2.dll in the Windows download has been downgraded to 2.0.20 to avoid a regression in SDL 2.0.22 (#460)
  • Support loading some mods known to need fs_game_base d3xp via Mods menu
    (currently, The Lost Mission and LibreCoop d3xp are supported)
  • Disable assertion in idSampleDecoderLocal::DecodeOGG() that triggered
    when starting a new Classic Doom3 game (#461)
  • Fix assertion when loading a mod via menu (#458)
    (this was a regression introduced with the keyboard improvements after 1.5.1)
  • Fix mouse remaining ungrabbed when running map from Radiant
    (this was a regression introduced with the reworked mouse grabbing code after 1.5.1)

Release 1.5.1 of our Doom3 Sourceport.

Needs the original Doom3 (not BFG!) game data.
See https://dhewm3.org/ for more information

By the way: There is a newer release - you probably want that instead :)

UPDATE 2021-05-04: Turns out dhewm3-mods_1.5.1_win32.zip was missing cdoom.dll.
Added dhewm3-mods-1.5.1_upd_win32.zip that contains all mod dlls, including cdoom.dll (for CLASSIC DOOM III). No further changes.

UPDATE 2021-12-20: Added Win32 and Linux amd64 binaries for the Doom 3: Hard Corps Mod

Click to see changes since 1.5.0
  • The (Windows-only) integrated editing tools of Doom3 are back!
    • They can only be built with non-Express versions of Visual Studio (tested Community Editions of VS2013 and VS2017) and can be disabled via CMake
    • Official dhewm3 Windows binaries are built with tools enabled, of course.
    • Only supports 32bit builds, because in contrast to the rest of dhewm3's code, the tool code is not 64bit compatible at all.
    • Based on Code from the dhewm3 branch of SteelStorm2, thanks to Motorsep for donating that code!
    • Has some bugfixes over the state in Doom3 1.3.1, like selecting a material in the Particle Editor doesn't break the viewport of the game any more.
    • Thanks to Tommy Hanusa for testing and reporting some issues (that were subsequently fixed)!
  • While prior dhewm3 releases for Windows have been built with Visual Studio 2010, this is built with Visual Studio 2017, so if it doesn't start on your system make sure you have the Visual C++ 2017 Redistributable installed - but chances are good you already have it.
  • Update savegame format (see #303 and #344)
    • old savegames still work, but new savegames can't be loaded with older versions of dhewm3!
  • Uploaded updated builds of Mod DLLs, now also supporting LibreCoop and The Lost Mission
  • dhewm3 now supports the Doom3 Demo gamedata
    • See below for installation instructions
    • This is based on Gabriel Cuvillier's code for D3Wasm, which ports dhewm3 to web browsers, thanks!
  • Create the game window on the display the cursor is currently on (when using more than one display)
  • Added r_fullscreenDesktop CVar to set if fullscreen mode should be "classic" or "Desktop" which means a borderless window at desktop resolution
  • Fullscreen modes that are not at the current desktop resolution should work better now
    • including nvidia DSR / AMD VSR; for that you might have to use the supplied dhewm3_notools.exe, as DSR/VSR seem to be incompatible with applications that use MFC (the GUI framework used for the Doom3 tools like the D3Radiant)
  • Several sound-related bugfixes:
    • Lags in starting to play a sound which for example caused the machinegun or plasmagun sounds to stutter have been eliminated (#141)
    • Trying to reset disconnected OpenAL devices, this esp. helps with display audio on Intel GPUs on Windows, when switching to fullscreen (#209)
    • Looping .wav sounds with leadin now work (#291)
    • The game still works if no sound devices are available at all (#292)
    • Make "idSoundCache: error unloading data from OpenAL hardware buffer" a Warning instead of an Error so it doesn't terminate game (by Corey O'Connor, #235)
  • Restore "Carmack's Reverse" Z-Fail stencil shadows; use glStencilOpSeparate() if available
    • That bloody patent finally expired last October: https://patents.google.com/patent/US6384822B1/en
    • This neither seems to make a visual nor performance difference on any hardware I tried (including Raspberry Pi 4), so this is mostly out of principle
    • Based on Code by Leith Bade and Pat Raynor.
    • The r_useCarmacksReverse and r_useStencilOpSeparate CVars allow switching both things on/off for comparison
  • New CVar g_hitEffect: If set to 0, the player camera damage effects (like double-vision and extreme tilt) when being hit are disabled (by dobosken, #279).
  • (On Windows) stdout.txt and stderr.txt are not saved next to the binary anymore, but in My Documents/My Games/dhewm3/, like save games, because the binary dir might not be writable and dhewm3 wouldn't start properly then
  • Fix lingering messages in HUD after loading savegame
    • Sometimes the "Game saved..." message didn't go away after loading a savegame (when having saved while it still was showing from last save)
  • Fixed clipping bug in delta1 (see #328)
  • Improve compatibility with some custom scripts ("t->c->value.argSize == func->parmTotal" Assertion; see #303)
  • Registering multiplayer servers at id's master-server fixed, so they can be found in the multiplayer menu (by Stradex, #293)
  • Support for reproducible builds by setting the CMake option REPRODUCIBLE_BUILD.
  • Should build on recent versions of macOS, also on Apple Silicon (thanks Dave Nicolson and Petter Uvesten).
  • Proper handling of paths with dots in directory names (#299, #301)
    • Some string functions that are intended to find/cut off/replace/... file extensions did cut off the whole path at dots..
    • Especially fixes loading and saving maps from such paths in the builtin D3Radiant level editor
  • idFileSystemLocal::ListMods() doesn't search / or C:\ anymore (it did so if one of the paths, like fs_cdpath, was empty)
  • Don't use translation in Autosave filenames (see #305)
    • In the Spanish translation all the Alpha Lab autosaves got the same name, now the autosave name is based on the mapename instead which is distinct

Changes since Release Candidate 1:

  • Several fixes for Editor-related bugs (thanks to Tommy Hanusa for reporting!)
    • When switching from an editor to the game, the game shouldn't get rendered in a tiny rectangle in the lower left corner anymore (#300)
    • When switching from Radiant into the Engine (e.g. with F2), the game isn't frozen anymore
  • Proper handling of paths with dots in directory names (#299, #301)
    • Some string functions that are intended to find/cut off/replace/... file extensions did cut off the whole path at dots..
    • Especially fixes loading and saving maps from such paths in the builtin D3Radiant level editor
    • As it's a quite invasive change this needs testing!

    • On Windows, just run D3Demo.exe to install the demo, on Linux (and probably others) you can extract the relevant file from the .run installer with sh doom3-linux-1.1.1286-demo.x86.run --tar xf demo/
    • This is based on Gabriel Cuvillier's code for D3Wasm, which ports dhewm3 to web browsers, thanks!
  • (On Windows) stdout.txt and stderr.txt are not saved next to the binary anymore, but in My Documents/My Games/dhewm3/, like save games, because the binary dir might not be writable and dhewm3 wouldn't start properly then

Release 1.5.0 of our Doom3 Sourceport.

By the way: There is a newer release - you probably want that instead!

Needs the original Doom3 (not BFG!) game data.
See https://dhewm3.org/ for more information

Changes since 1.4.1:

  • We've got a proper homepage now: https://dhewm3.org
  • Support for some Mods via custom SDK: Classic Doom3, Fitz Packerton, HardQore2, Denton's Enhanced Doom3, Rivensin (formerly known as Ruiner).
  • Supports High DPI displays on Windows now
  • Scale menus, fullscreen videos and the PDA to 4:3 (with black bars left/right) on widescreen displays so they don't look stretched/distorted. Can be disabled with r_scaleMenusTo43 0.
    No, this unfortunately can't be done for the HUD (except for the crosshair), because it also handles fullscreen effects (for example when receiving damage), and those would look bad with black/empty bars on left/right.
  • Commandline option to display some help on supported commandline arguments: -h or -help or --help or /?
  • (Experimental) uncapped framerate, enable by entering com_fixedTic -1 in the console (can be set back with com_fixedTic 0).
  • Providing binaries for Linux amd64 (x86_64) now
  • Updated some libraries bundled in the Win32 build: SDL2 2.0.9, OpenAL-soft 1.19.1 and curl 7.62.0
  • Support for the AROS and OpenBSD operating systems
  • Several bugfixes

Pre-release

Release 1.5.1 is available, please use that instead: https://github.com/dhewm/dhewm3/releases/tag/1.5.1






Release Candidate 2 for the upcoming version 1.5.0 of our Doom 3 Sourceport

Changes since RC1:

  • Fixes performance issues that RC1 had (due to a SDL bug)
  • the mods contain a DLL for Rivensin now, as it has been released, see also https://www.moddb.com/mods/ruiner

Please test and report any issues! - Feedback is also welcome when it works, so I know it has been tested ;-)

Changes since 1.4.1:

  • We've got a proper homepage now: https://dhewm3.org
  • Support for some Mods via custom SDK: Classic Doom3, HardQore2, Denton's Enhanced Doom3 and Rivensin.
    • dhewm3-mods_1.5.0_RC2_win32.zip contains the game DLLs for those Mods and a README that tells you where to get the game data
    • See https://github.com/dhewm/dhewm3-sdk for more details about mod support and the SDK.
    • This has also broken backwards compatibility with 1.4.x game DLLs, that's why this version will be 1.5.0 and not 1.4.2.
  • Supports High DPI displays on Windows now
  • Scale menus, fullscreen videos and the PDA to 4:3 (with black bars left/right) on widescreen displays so they don't look stretched/distorted. Can be disabled with r_scaleMenusTo43 0.
