DooM 3 BFG And ATI Graphics Cards
I know alot of users are having this issue so let me tell you what I have done.. I started with my first system with a Intel 550ti graphics card. I bought BFG on disk, installed it on my Windows XP machine, it works as expected, no issues. I installed this on TWO machines with a ATI HD5770 card, different motherboards, different ram, and BFG WILL NOT RUN!! I then went out and bought a ATI 7850 and same dam thing happened. After all this fighting, I installed an old Intel / Geforce 8800 graphics card on one of the machines that had a ATI 5770 previously installed on it and it ran like a champ!!! NO ISSUES !!!! ( AWSOME RIGHT? )

BFG SEEMS TO NOT RUN ON ATI CARDS!! ATI DOES NOT SUPPORT OPENGL THEREFOR IT WONT RUN! IF YOU ARE GOING TO PLAY THIS GAME, SAVE YOUSELF ALOT OF TIME, EFFORT AND HEARTACHE AND USE AN INTEL / NVIDIA CARD IF YOU ALREADY HAVE ONE.!!

Catalyst 13.4 has OpenGL 4.3. It's just flawed or something.

It actually does work with ATI cards I`m sure I found the fix on these forums a few weeks ago.
Start a multiplayer game then quit it then start campaign.
Might have to do that everytime you want to start campaign though.
Hopefully that will have it working for you.
I run it on a 6870 Cat 13.4 drivers.

when I go to start the game, the game tried to lod and then a command box ( sort of like the one that windows uses) pops up with alot of info and the game does not even start ssssooo as far as starting a multiplayer or even a single player game, that is not heppening.

Try going into windows control panel to your sound options & change it to 16bits 48000 Hz dvd quality aswell or lower.
ie if its realtek..etc

AMD drivers obviously have OpenGL support. If they didn't, nobody would use OpenGL, because they'd be potentially cutting their userbase in half. Total misinformation going on here.

Just as an aside, I played this and Rage, both OpenGL games, on two different AMD cards. How is this madness possible, given that they allegedly don't have any OpenGL support?

Install the 13.2 beta drivers from Feb this year. They work perfectly fine and I got a few hours of gameplay without problem
