    DOOM 3 Faster FPS

    Dont know if anyones aware of this but if you extract the contents of the main PK files to the directory they are in this should increase your fps as it dosent have to constantly access the highly compredded PK files all the time.

    its a very small performance increase tho, not really worth wasting the HD space

    Shouldnt make any difference at all as a matter of fact. The only difference it would make if your computer is so slow it has to keep accessing the HDD during play, and then it would still be unplayably slow anyway
    To err is human. To really foul things up ... you need a computer.
