AMD Phenom II 3.8ghz
2 x ATI 5870 Crossfire, or not.
1920 x 1200 -or- 5760 x 1200

..four differant ways to run it and..

__1__FPS !!!!! (or less)

AND

Doom 1 and 2 have their menus MIRROR ♥♥♥ BACKWARDS ! ! !
...and NO SCREEN REZ' opptions at all ! !

Unplayale right out of the box ! I don't freekin' believe it!

No GFX config panel in system menu!
No cmd/config CONSOLE for tweeks!
The xx.cfg is even hidden off somewhere else to boot.

-NOTHING- I can do for myself except ♥♥♥♥♥ in the msg' base on a STEAM font thats too small to read!!

I have been a die hard fan from the beginning. Ran servers for -years-. These last two products are freeking JOKE.

I have also been running Doom 1&2 on triple screens (5760 x 1200) for -over- two years but id Software can't do it..

You guys got 24hrs.. or we are done and this drivel is going back.

I don't freekin believe it.

Yeah same problem here. Doom 3 is a slideshow for me when I try to start a match. But Doom and Doom II work fine. Glad I'm not the only one with this issue. Who did you buy it from gmg? I was wondering why Steam never had it for pre-order. Perhaps now we know why. =/

I up dated vid' drivers... not 1 fps any more, but still south of 30.

Still no graphics panel to tweek things. I realy need to get AA turned off. 1g of vid' mem with 3 screens means no room for AA in the vid'mem.

D 1&2 still got Mirrored menu text.. duh.. Thats just too weird.

Why didn't D 1&2 get the VR / Eyefinity / Suround screen treatment?

<sigh>

Works great for me. Have you tried updating your drivers? The new driver is suppose to improve performance and add Doom's profile in there

Same problem here.

Drivers is a good start. Sorted most of mine.

If the drivers aren't up to snuff why not say so? All those other users with crapped out "opengl" problems is ..drivers.

I have quad fire, 2x HD 5970s on my HTPC, and it's just pathetic. That's why I upgraded to SLI 3GB GTX 580s for my main rig. I monitor VRAM usage all the time. And I've seen usage north of 2.5 GB in a few games on 3D Surround. Yep, you're gonna need more VRAM or knock back your resolution to a single screen res. VRAM cap will stop your frame rate dead. I couldn't figure it out for the longest time. Battlefield Bad Company 2, Aliens Vs. Predator, mostly DX11 games, Crysis 2 and the GPUs were at like 30% but I was only getting 25 fps. VRAM maxed out. Which is pretty much why 2 GB cards are the standard now. You're gonna need to upgrade, I know it sucks when you've already got tons of power, but that 1 GB of frame buffer isn't gonna be enough.
I'm running
EVGA x58 Class.
Intel 980x 4.0 Ghz
12 GB DDR3 2 Ghz
Cooler Master 1250 watt PSU
SLI EVGA GTX 580 3GB
3 x 3D monitors at 1920x1080
I'm maxing out in 3D at 60 fps with SLI disabled. So, it may also be AMD drivers. Who knows.

One other OpenGL problem I saw; refresh rate, was at 30 interlaced.. up it to 60 ni.

Thanx cerel', for letting others know that, I already did. I just didn't want to over complicate the post. Once I got it runnin', and coolled down a bit, I went and turned off the fluffy bits and runs rock solid 60's now.

If software A doesn't like drivers B ..FREEKING say so.
The software saw error come back and then quit the app all nice and clean. Now user starting to freak out..

When the error comes back tell the user what it hit. Make'n it funny might be too much..
"sorry 30hz interLACE is too gay for me".


cerealkeller, didn't I see a pic of you on the 'net horkin' back a honkin' bowl of count chocula?
I had always wonder'd where he went.

mines locked to 60hertz no way to alter it

So has there been a patch out yet to fix all this silliness? Doom 3 still isn't working for me.
[3rc] Jeruzalem Oct 18, 2012 @ 5:47pm 
you and probably 15,000 other people who bought it. they didnt fix the issue where the game wont recognize videocard produced after the year 2008.
