Windows 7: DOOM3 - Windows 7

DOOM3 - Windows 7

Anyone got DOOM 3 to work with windows 7? , when i load it up i get annoying out of sync waves going down the screen. Also everytime i set widescreen and restart the game it goes back to 640x. I tried autoexec.cfg and setting that to widescreen but it still starts up as a really low res!

Not the only one

It needs some sort of patch I would suppose. It needed one for vista so the same one may work. It also may be that you have the 64 bit version of windows, not sure if thats a problem.

Windows 7 Ultimate RC Build 7100


it would seem using the windows update drivers, doom 3 works perfectly fine, but trying to use any recent drivers will break most ID (Doom/Quake, etc) or OpenGL based games.

using the nvidia stock drivers on my 9800GTX+ I had those horrible flickering lines with DOOM3 and wolfenstein on steam , unninstalled the card completely and allowed windows update to install drivers and that fixed it and all my other games

Yep, dont use the vista drivers as the WU ones are specific for Win7.
