windows 7

i have a problem running doom3 in windows 7.. it runs fine except it kinna does the matrix glitch thing. where it jumps and says the same thing twice. weird.

my keyboard will become unresponsive after a few minutes of bein in the game. the game runs fine up to this point.
then.... i will be stuck moving foward, backward, or in a strafe, whichever i was doing when it went unresponsive. the only thing the keyboard will do is espape to the menu. i cant reload, jump, crouch or anything.... im on windows 7 7057 32bit. radeon x1650. basic compaq keyboard.

If you can stand running it in windowed mode modify your doom3 config located in the /base/ directory and switch off the full screen option.

This removed the flicker for me :)

oh and @previous poster with all the BUY THE GAME nonsense.

I did, and it was this bought version updated one update at a time and it still flickered.

Windows 7 Professional x64 RTM

I used this solution a week or so ago with Doom 3 and other older OpenGL-based games.
It involves using a RivaTuner tweak.
You can download RivaTuner here.

Windows 7 with opengl (CS 1.6)
This fixed the flickering lines when running OpenGL games fullscreen.

Windows 7 RC1 (7100) / Windows XP SP3 dual-boot

You might also try the disable desktop composition/compositing/whatever compatibility mode - I heard that Aero can hose OpenGL apps.

I got it to work but its slow when playing the game wat would cause this?

I dont get any lines or anything and seems to run well on the title screen and story but playing the game just a bit slow.

I have at lead 2000gb mem and processor speed is 3000mhz so cant b that.

You could try checking the nvidia control panel and setting things to performance rather than quality. Read each entries description and everytime it mentions performance, use that setting.

Welcome to the forums lisa01707,

There is also the in-game 'System' settings that allow you to 'Autodetect' visual capabilities. I've noticed that when the game first runs it doesn't quite detect correctly so can lead to some performance lag.

Thanks :)

I will try this, I also notice when I play DVD's there is a performance lag as well so couldn it be more than just the game?
