Mounted flashlight?
Am I the only one who hates the fact that they changed the flashlight to a mounted one? Having a seperate flashlight is what added to the games freaky atmosphere. Anyone else feel the same? Don't suppose I am simply missing an option to revert back to the old school method?

Awe look the monster wants to be handheld flashlight buddies :P
Yeah I too liked the handheld flashlight. From memory it just made the game feel more creepy.

Making assumptions about my age and if i did or did not play doom 3 when it was released? More ignorant dumbass assumptions from your side of the table I see. LOL. Hilarious. IGNORANT

Writing with caps-lock and writing ignorant over and over again won't make you a point lad. The thing i say is a fact. Happy raging mate.

So let me get this str8, when doom 3 first came out and in the after years, people were like " Oh i ♥♥♥♥ing hate the flashlight why isnt mounted???????????" And now everyone cries because it is mounted. Boy oh boy.

Not everyone was against the original flashlight. Those were vocal individuals and just like how there are individuals who dislike the original flashlight there are also the ones who like it (myself included).

You are right, no one is forcing him to buy this. Actually, he has never mentioned he was being forced. He was just stating he did not like the mounted flashlight and asked if there was a way to bring the original flashlight back.

Please don't tell him not to complain as he has the right to voice his opinion just as much as you do, besides, complaining about things makes them stand out more informing anyone who wasn't familiar with them beforehand.

And how would you know if he has or hasn't played the game when it came out? It appears you mentioned that because you want to prove that you were there when "everyone" started complaining and wanted to say that he wasn't around when people complained. But how would you know he wasn't around back then to see the complaints? Also, he never said people weren't complaining, he said that not everyone was. To be exact, he said "Some of us prefered the flashlight and did not download the ducktape mod." Again, not everyone was against the original flashlight

Pretty much all the things you said were not fact, but twisted versions of the truth and false. The only thing you maybe got right is him using capslock but even that might not be true as he might have used shift to type. Everything you said here may have been a complete miss.

Personally, back in the original Doom 3, I always hated the flashlight the way it was. Ok, I got that a pistol might not have one, but some of the bigger guns should've had an extra light on them. Always thought it was odd that it was the way it was. Heck, check out our SWAT teams, and the like. They have rifles and shotguns with lights on them. Was always annoying to me.

I liked the fact there was no flashlight on weapons originally. What ticks me off is that they lied about it in the BFG edition. Before release, they stated that there would be the option to use the Doom 3 flashlight or the helmet flashlight. They obviously didn't do that for whatever reason (just like they removed zoom from the keyboard options menu, but it can still be manually added in the config).

Really? Can you map it back to the Controller, too? I really miss zooming in on stuff, like you could in the XBox version.

It baffles me that they simply stripped away the whole flashlight mechanic. I found the idea genius back in the day! Having to choose between being able to see or being able to defend yourself gave the game a much needed core mechanic to differentiate itself from other shooters. I guess I should have gushed about it back in 2004, since only the critics got their way now.

This game desperately needs some mod support! Does anyone know why it doesn't? Is there a technical reason for it?

The flashlight is pretty much the only reason I have no interest in BFG. What a shame. I wish this could be modded back in.

Yep.. the dark atmosphere and having just a flashlight really made the game. I like this rendition if Doom3 (original) ever became an arcade machine....
