Doom 3 Tips

To benchmark Doom 3 use the command timedemo demo1 from the console(~). See the previous post for accessing the console.

Some people claim increasing image_cacheMegs to 96, 128 or even 256 makes the game run smoother. Benchmarking with demo1 shows no difference for me. So what's it do? "maximum MB set aside for temporary loading of full-sized precompressed images"

If you want to increase the maximum players on your server above 4, add +set si_maxPlayers "x" to the shortcuts target line, where x is the max players.
