Setup Guide For Pre-Beta Version 1.0 + Newer

Postby >>GameHacKeR<< » Sat Dec 27, 2014 6:31 pm

This is a step by step guide of how to install Doom Reborn Pre-Beta 1.0 and newer

The version i'm using in the images is Pre-Beta Version 1.2

Note Pre-Beta Version 1.1 uses the old modified WinRAR self extraction installer
You may want to refer to the setup guide for Alpha Version 0.81-0.841
But both guides should still help you ether way


Doom Reborn Requires The Original Doom 3 To Play and is NOT Compatible with BFG Edition
Doom 3 also needs to be patched to 1.3.1 for full compatibility
Doom Reborn will launch on Doom 3 1.2 and 1.3
Health Vials and Armour shards can freak out and randomly not work if using 1.2

Doom Reborn is gradually moving towards a complete standalone game which means in future
you'll no longer require Doom 3 to play
But for the time being You Require Doom 3 Version 1.3.1 To Play

Step 1: Start

This is the opening window of the installer,
Simply click "Next" to continue

If you aren't using a desktop shortcut, You need to remember to load the game using the "DoomReborn.exe" that you'll find in your Doom 3 folder next to the Doom3.exe
Doom Reborn has code related fixes to the menu and the hud in game etc that require the "DoomReborn.exe" to work.
