FRANKENSTEIN MOD

=================================================

Happy Halloween...

This mod began as a personal use mod that contained alot of community content I "frankensteined" together and still retains much of it, but it began to take on a different shape as an idea was born and I breathed new life into it...Frankenstein was born.

Frankenstein Mod is about improving the sounds and visuals in Doom 3 by adding new sounds and skins (as well as enhancing the originals) to weapons and characters. As well as other things that make the graphics really come to life.

I've also retained the Plasma Gun Radar and Advanced Sentry mods but these can be removed by simply deleting the appropriate scripts if you so desire. Fragger's Custom X-Hair is in there as well. Also included is PENTALIGHT (Pentagram Flashlight and Pistol Modification) which I made but it began as 2 separate community mods.

=================================================

The Map:

The mod comes packed with Church of Ruins (DresdenSinn's Halloween Remix), an altered version of the original (by doodlebob) that I've modified to play more like a glorified haunted house. But you can also use the mod to play all of your favorite custom SP maps.

To Play The Map: After activating the mod from the main menu, bring down the console (Ctrl/Alt/~) and simply type in church_of_ruins_DSHR.

WARNING: CONTAINS STRONG LANGUAGE AND A SCENE DEPICTING A SEXUAL ACT.


=================================================
Installation:

Extract or place the Frankenstein folder inside your main DOOM3 directory (not the base folder). Acivate the mod from the game's main menu screen.

I'm also including my own custom DoomConfig file already inside the folder which may or may not be beneficial, you could at least try it and see. I've given it a read-only extension so it will not be overwritten the next time you start the game but you can change and alter it to your liking. If you experiece problems, just remove it altogether.

=================================================

Known Issues:

This mod is intended for higher end gfx cards and meant to be played on the Ultra setting with all the bells and whistles turned on. If you have a lower end gfx card, you'll be missing out. Lower end systems may also experience FPS problems on the included map but still should be playable.

On the map:

Sometimes the monster (not to give away which one) has trouble breaking completely through the wall so you have to help him out a little by tapping the bricks with the flashlight, there are items on the other side..you'll see what I mean.

Make sure all the bodies are free and clear of the platform before ascending as they may become wedged during the ascent and prevent the platform from completely rising trapping you and you'll have to start the level over..once again, you'll see what I mean.

Be sure the music is finished playing after the final Boss battle before you approach the character so you can actually hear what I have to say.

Lastly, there are 4 custom PDA's in the game (not including the one you start with), make sure you find them all!

ENJOY!
