How to make Doom 3 BFG work
I originally posted today my game refuses to open and play and a little blue box opens asking me to install the latest directX. Before instaling this game I already had directX 11 but it appears that some missing old files are not included from previous versions of X in 11. After some research on Microsoft's website and finding a directX exe file that installs every ver. old and present fixes the game and now it plays fine.

This is crap. I shouldn't have to go digging around to make a game on Steam work if my PC meets the minimum requirements. Fix this Valve.

Doom 3 came out years ago and at that time the pc's I was building was having trouble with running this game. When you click on it to start playing it looks for certain old directX files. The exe I fould will install X5 all the way to 11 and anything missing is placed back. If you already have 11 no need to worry because it will put it back and more.

This game is designed to look for old Xfiles and doesn't matter if your pc came with 11. Besides belive it or not, some games work better with old drivers like from ATI and Nvidia. Don't assume because you have the lastest drivers that all games will work like they once did in the past. I mostly try beta before Microsoft give it's signature of approval.
