DOOM 3: BFG Edition

DOOM 3: BFG Edition

Vis statistikker:
A Likely Solution for People Who Can't Get This Game to Run
Go into your Doom 3 BFG Edition folder that's in your steamapps location, find the folder msvc_2010, open it up, and run the vcredist_x86 manually. Usually the vcredist_x86 is automatically run whenever a new game is launched for the first time through Steam, but for some reason, Doom 3 BFG Edition doesn't do this.

Customer support is completely incompetent, telling people their usual default run of "delete the clientregistry.blob and check your router" which just doesn't work. I even told them EXPLICITLY "I don't even get the standard first-time-run C++ Redistributable window." There's something about Doom 3 BFG Edition's programming that doesn't run the vcredist_x86 program on its first run, and so that might make it unplayable. (For some reason, I could run Doom 3 BFG Edition on one computer despite this problem, but that computer also had normal Doom 3 installed once upon a time.)

Maybe I should apply to work for Valve as customer support.

Oh dear god are they incompetent! They can't even send me one damn email! Anyway, i was hoping you could resolve this for me. Doom 3 is fully capable of running, but the Doom 1 & 2 games don't work. I can enter their menus but that's it. Only the arrow keys work. I tried a lot of stuff: "Graphic uptate whitch enabled Doom 3, Resetting, Starting the vcredist_x86 manually, adding the msvcr100.dll file." Still, nothing happens. It shouldn't be about the too advanced system. The games were revamped for advanced machines. Some of my laptop traits: Graphic card: Nvidia GeForce 150M, 4GB RAM, OS: Windows 7 (x64).

Sorry; can't help you there, since I'm not having that issue.

My system runs Doom 3 beautifully. I cannot get this version to even start up. I figured out for myself the step you outlined in the top post here, and the game turns the screen black and then crashes out. I'm having a VERY hard time believing that this got a proper amount of QA testing before being released. There's no way.

Doom 3 doesn't launch for me. The solutions presented so far sound great. I can't get vcredist_x86 to run manually; it says "A newer version of Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable has been detected on the machine."

And I get this after launch aborts:

From Microsoft's website, I downloaded x86 and x64 versions of Visual C++ 2010 and only one installed and I think it's because the machine OS is 64-bit. It's running Win 7 Service Pack 1 on AMD Turion II P540 Dual-Core 2.4Ghz

OMG, i have a fresh Window 7 Pro, and Steam installed, my first download game is doom 3 bfg and i cant run it..
AyezRed 1. dec 2012 kl. 10:30 
I'm running the game jsut fine with an Asus G74, I gotta say that it is unfortunate that people can't get this game to run. I love it. +1 for helping people try to figure out how to get this game going on thier pc's.
=)(==Penetrator==> 1. dec 2012 kl. 11:11 
OK I got my BFG to run by install the following programs below.

Install this one first

Install this one next

After you have installed this programs and your BFG still doesnt work, sorry i cannot help you.

My current PC environment
Fresh install of Windows 7 Pro x64
Fresh install of Steam and BFG Edition.

Good luck fellow gamers.
Your fellow penetrator.

FYI, BOTH of those installers are in the game folder in C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\DOOM 3 BFG Edition folder. The first screwup with this game is that these installers are not automatically launched at first run.

HOWEVER, I've tried this game on two diffrent Win 7 systems, and the game runs on neither of them. Black screen, then light grey screen, and then a notice that the game has crashed.

This will fix 99% of problems

Uh... yeah.... you're going to have to give me more to go on than that...
z_day_24_7 1. dec 2012 kl. 13:54 
I DL'd the Jackerz59 and WinRAR came back saying the zip was corrupt so I rebuilt it and extracted the x64 versions of the cabs in there. Now what?
z_day_24_7 2. dec 2012 kl. 2:30 
That file isn't there. There was just one directory "directx" and six .cab files inside.
z_day_24_7 2. dec 2012 kl. 2:32 
I updated all of my driver files and deleted Doom 3. Reinstalling because the OS was telling me there is a problem launching the program.
z_day_24_7 2. dec 2012 kl. 13:52 
I ran Doom 3 BFG in compatabilty mode under Win XP SP3 as admin and now I have created the config file in Saved Games. Edited that with the tweaks, but now I have a game running with audio and such, just no picture. It's a black screen with a white box in the upper right taking up about a quarter of the space.

Just purchased the BFG edition myself. Am running Win 7 Pro; with 4 gigs memory and a Nvidia 1 gig 3D card with all up to date drivers, and so far everything is running great. I have not had a single problem. Am wondering if the game prefers certain specs, not just hardware to run but a certain config?
