======================== Tweakedoom v5.00 by HaVoK3 (1-04-2k17) ========================
- Now updated by Dafama -
************** Installation : **************
To install the mod, just extract the pk4 file in your Doom 3 "base" folder OR create a new folder in your Doom 3 (game, not the "base" folder) and put the file inside. By doing the second technique, you should be able to select or deselect the mod in the Doom 3 menu.
************** Description: **************
This mod tweaks many different aspects of Doom 3 game, not only this, also, increases difficulty making it a challenge to beat, the gameplay is much faster, more smooth, all weapons had been tweak for work smooth, fast and much more powerful than the original, the monsters are more powerful too and faster, also, even there is an optional .pk4 file that is disabled by default, its name is pak001_veryfast_monsters_anims_denton3.pk4.zip rename to end in .pk4 to enabled again, but, be warned, the monsters will KILL you if you are not the best marine !!!
There is gamex86.dll libraries for both v1.3.0 and v1.3.1 versions for each Doom 3 and Doom 3 v1.3.1 + ROE, so the game can be played on both, just rename the .zip to end .pk4 to enabled one version or rename .pk4 to end in .zip to disabled again the separate package like for example this zzzz_game_rbloom_v131_roe.pk4.zip if renamed to end in .pk4 would enabled the game for ROE if used the .cmd command that came for load the mod into ROE, if not, disabled again and load the mod into normal base Doom 3 with this file named ending in .zip and this zzz_game_zbloom_v131.pk4 enabled for Doom 3 base with v1.3.1 support, and so on, its easy, ok ?
Enjoy the new challenge, this mod is compatible with official maps and can work with other user made maps, too, so try it and play it, i do the same already !
ToDo...: At this time, still i am not able to get shadows on muzzleflashes on this mod, i don't know the reason why this mod resists to do that ?¿?

The Pistol The Shotgun (I know, this weapons doesn't use bullets but shells. It does the effect too.) The Machinegun The Chaingun (I've put a patch that removes this effect which needs strong Graphics Cards) The SMC300 (There's a patch too, the SMC300 eats more resources than any weapon in this MOD, so...) The Protonyde (The light is displayed in a short time, so it doesn't affects too much the performance)
-The Grenade and Rocket Launcher have a bigger Light effect (proper to them) -The BFG exploding light effect is a lot bigger and tweaked to display a White Light on the Corpses (near to the explosion) -The Railgun explosion effect is a lot bigger and have a Rocket Launcher mtr (I've forgot the real name, sorry) explosion effect and the gun's head smokes a little bit after a shot. (See by yourself if you didn't understand... I'm proud of myself) -The Weapons that uses bullets makes sparks when hitting a surface (and not an actor) The Weapons (BFG) or Things (like lava, fire) that uses the Heat Hazes are Tweaked to be a little bit more Realistic (bigger, more hazes) -A better light render (the light are optimized, in glprogs files and in a autoexec.cfg file)

The Grenade's Explosion Effect have been tweaked since Tweakedoom 3 The Plasmagun's Plasma Balls Impacts have now image distorsions (rounded) The BFG fire effect have a complete image distorsion The Railgun Explosion Effects have modified (Fire-Plasma Like) and a image Distorsion (Heat Effect)
There is a Second Pack, for those who finds that the Protonyde is not very fun to play. In the Second Pack, you'll find a replacement for the Protonyde, the Vulcan.
To Get the new weapons, you'll have to type some commands in the console (better bind them no ?) :
give weapon_smc300 give weapon_protonyde give weapon_vulcan give weapon_railgun
======= NOTES : =======
-The New Textures only works on Doom3 High Settings (Option Menu) -When I've added the screen shakes at fire (sndshd files), the game estimates them as bugs but aren't. Don't worry, the console display them only once.
To Apply the Second Pack, just extract it in the same place you installed Tweakedoom4. For the Dynamic Lights Disabler Patch, just extract the .pk4 files you want to use in the same folder where you installed Tweakedoom4.
PS : I'm sorry to make this MOD so late, I had some... Hard Disk Problem's (For those who really cares *again*, I had to throw away my old HD, and to rebuild a new Tweakedoom MOD).
By doing this mod, I wanted to include many weapons. But everytime that I try a new one, I think that it won't be fun, or it's useless or... well, I only keeped one "new-new" weapon, the Vulcan.
List of weapon I did, but didn't include (if someone wan't me to make Weapon Packs, I can, just ask for it) :
-Tripod Launcher : some kind of multi-rocket launcher, use like mines because the rocket are slow
-BFRG : Big F*cking RailGun... the name said everything
-Berserk Hands : One punch, one dead.. not really funny.
-Sniper Rifle : A ballistic copy of the Railgun
-Delirium : A gun that propulses the enemy. Uses the Mass props and does not damage. Wanated to include a big wave (image distorsion) on impact... a Candy-Eye Weapon
-Flare-Grenade : Already created by other Modders but I found it useless for this Mod. I included light explosions when a bullet hits a surface. Just spare some ammo for a little bit light...
-Rocket Jump : The Rocket Explosion Damage was set to 0 and whan the players "shoots his feet", he was propulsed very high... Useless in Doom3 Levels.
-UltraBall : I used the Grenade Model to make some kind of High-Speed ball that travels straight, and explodes only after 3 seconds and not by contact. The Doom Marine throws it like a Normal Hand Grenade but the UltraBall Acts like a rocket.
-Grenade Launcher : The name means all. Rocket Launcher Model and Grenades as Projectiles... Useless because the Hand Grenade is a equivalent of this weapon.
Thanks to Maha-X for his amazing BLOOM .dll library that adds BLOOM and (kind of) HDR to Doom 3 !
