    You dont need to be a transgaming subscriber to run Doom 3 under linux. You need to use the CVS version - which is available free for download from the transgaming website Here []

    Still ... would be nice to have a native version sooner!

    • I tried this with Cedega a couple weeks after the game was released, compared to Windows it ran terrible...but it did run
      even though the frame rate was very very low 10
      The colors were off
      Sounds were ok

      Since then I've shelved the game and am waiting for the native installer. Wine with this game (at least on my system) is just not worth it.
      • If I'm not mistaken, there were a flurry of patches to WineX in CVS since the release of the game to address some of the color issues..

        I really don't think I'll be able to test this, as all I have is a P3/600, with a Radeon 7500 PCI. *laugh*

    Unless you have to play it RIGHT NOW!!, of course :)

      Damn right, as if Doom3 forums aren't already flooded with 80,000 technical problems. No wonder John M. wants to retire.

      What's worse than charging $60 to a platform that's problem plagued. Charging more money on more platforms.

        John M. == John Carmack?

        Either way, if this added that much of a technical nightmare, maybe they should have had "when its done" include "for all platforms we will support".

        I have -no- problem with the distributors getting hit with a bunch of problems from such a configuration as it shows how much their markets want a non-Windows client.

        John Carmack and id are not the ones staffing the support forums. It should have nothing to do with their mindset other than to be able to tell the publishers "I told you
