what were they running it on? a 9800pro? darnn... its running really good on that system... 60fps or more

05-18-2003, 09:03 AM
Yepp. 9800pro.
Requirement will be 700mhz CPU and GFX capable of running DX6.
(2ghz with a GeForce4 recommended though..)

Hope they release a demo SOON !

05-18-2003, 10:41 AM
pleeeease somebody hack their pcs, somebody break into their studios and release a dem, a beta or even an alpha and if it only has 1 level to play pleeeease :D

im affraid we wont see a demo for some time, the realse date is september afaik, and they wont release a demo so many weeks before the game will hit the streets

05-18-2003, 03:40 PM
can you post a link please. I heard a lot about this preview

05-18-2003, 04:24 PM

they are pretty updated with the latest/best vids.

05-18-2003, 06:25 PM

All I can say is "suckers!" Ok, I was at E3 this year. I tried to get into the HL2 booth, but...it was a 4 hour wait. I did get to dink around a little bit with a technology demo they had outside of the booth. It was cool. This was all on the 9800 pro because ATI was hosting the booth. I can't wait for this one.

05-21-2003, 12:27 PM
Yeah, I REALLY envie you. I would love to go to E3 next year or so, but it's a way to travel for me :(

What else looked good on E3 ? How was DOOM3 in comparison?

05-23-2003, 05:49 PM
All they had for Doom 3 was a video. There wasn't a booth or anything, just a tv playing a video. It did look better than the version people saw at quakecon last year. Compared to half-life 2, Doom 3 looks better graphically but HL2 will be better because it is story driven.

05-24-2003, 04:32 PM
ok. I've seen the videos from Doom3 and and it looks a bit to scary for my taste...
HL2 is a given buy offcouse and i'll probably get DooM aswell just for fun

05-26-2003, 07:38 PM
Yeah, the beta that was leaked last year scared the crap out of me. I couldn't play for long with needing a bathroom break. That is how scary the game will be.

05-27-2003, 08:59 AM
i dind that games people say are scary are often not, theyve just overreacted from what theyve read, im hoping this one will have me regualry changing boxers, my mum who does the washing is not though!


05-27-2003, 01:08 PM
hahahah just think of all the kids playing doom3 hell this game will scare a whole generation :p

from http://www.aixgaming.com ?

you need bittorrent http://www4.aixgaming.com/media/bittorrent-3.2.1.exe if I remember correctly it include a codec aswell, they don't have the same movies as before though so I'm not sure.

Maybe it's .mov files you are trying to watch? in that case you'll need quicktime

06-15-2003, 04:50 PM
I watched the HL2 trailer.. man does that look so sweet. I think DOOM III will have better graphics, but the HL2 will have more versatility to the engine from the looks of it. Sorry to all the xbox fans, but these games make halo 2 look like mario :p:

06-15-2003, 07:06 PM
I don't know if I would go that far terroh8er. I watched the Halo 2 demo at E3. It has some pretty impressive changes made to it over the first Halo.

06-16-2003, 02:18 PM
ok so maybe I exaggerated a bit with the Mario thing :p: i watched the halo 2 e3 thing on my puter but i wasn't greatly impressed, although i never liked the original halo either.

maybe i'm just weird :p:

06-17-2003, 12:56 AM
no, i dont like halo either. the water.. all tzhose weird colours... really has some mario thing in it. and the graphics are bad... it looks ok on an xbox, but thats with loooow resolution.

Half life 2 is going to be so awesome, i'm not looking forward for doom 3 much - it has no multiplayer (or a very limited one), more interested on later games based on it's engine.

but i dont think it will run that good on my system :p

06-21-2003, 05:43 PM
i cant wait for the popular mods like cs, or dod using the HL2 engine :D

06-21-2003, 05:49 PM
why do you think it wont run good? it ran great on a 3000+ nf2 system with radeon 9800 pro, itll run ok on any oced geforce 4 system and higher.

06-21-2003, 07:16 PM
well if the game can run a POS machine, im sure any machine here can run it well ;)

06-23-2003, 07:33 PM
HL2 is designed to accomidate your system. It may have to turn down the detail a little, but you can run it on just about any old p3 as long as you have a geforce 4 card or higher and you can pick those up for $100 or less.

06-24-2003, 09:09 AM
so you guys think that they will make a CS game that runs of the HL2 engine?

Not sure what the hell is going in CS...seems like I have been playing v1.5 for years and 1.6 will never come.

Then there is the new CS game - Condition Zero.

What do you guys think will happen when we see HL2 in SEPT?

06-24-2003, 06:33 PM

There are already some mod groups that are converting their current projects for half-life over to half-life 2. I believe you will eventually see a CS conversion to the new engine, but it will take a while. On a side note, version 1.6 won't come out until Condition Zero does, or so I understand.

06-24-2003, 08:42 PM
dod is currently being converted to the hl2 engine :D

07-13-2003, 10:28 AM
i hate to break it to you guys, but half life 2 is coming out at the END of september. which means you'll have a whole month to be tortured. heh i forgot when doom3 is coming out. can someone tell me again?

07-13-2003, 03:14 PM
Doom 3 comes out sometime after Half-life 2 does. I think in October or November unless id pushes the date back. Carmack said that the game will be done when they feel it is done.

07-13-2003, 04:50 PM
ill get both games aynway, why should i get only one? those are the best 2 games in the last 2 years! i still think hl2 will outsell doom3 by 10x!
