Unlock nightmare?
I'm kinda annoyed that it wont let me play nightmare. It's blanked out. Why? No idea. It's lame.

Do you guys know anyway to unlock it? I don't plan on re-playing the game all over just for a harder difficulty.

No matter.

"Nightmare Difficulty Without Finishing the Game

You will need to edit the DoomConfig.cfg file, located in the /Data/BASE folder. Make sure you backup the file before making any changes. Open the file with Notepad or other text editor. Look for the "g_nightmare" entry. If you haven't finished the game yet, you will see the number 0. Change it to 1, save, and nightmare mode will be unlocked"

ID, if for some reason you are reading this... just unlock it. It's stupid.

true it is kinda lame that you would have to play through the game once to unlock nightmare.
just remember that this is a port of the xbox 360 version of the game. id makes bad decisions
like rage with the vehicle combat. it was kinda silly.

You can unlock Nightmare easy from the beginning with the little ini edit.

lol.... I completed the game on Veteran and it still didnt unlock for me....
Thx to this thread I can breathe normally. Sry for the necro.

EDIT.... well it seems for me Nightmare mode cant be unlocked. Its still greyed out on the main menu, even after Ive edited the cfg file. Saved file, started game, no deuce. Looked at file and it was set to 0 again....

I even tried to make it read-only. That kept the file saved with a 1 but the game still keeps nightmare option grayed out.
