    Hi guys

    Does anyone know why Doom 3 won't start? I've copied the pak's, and ran the installer. But no cigar...

    Any help's appreciated.

    Cheers,
    aim

    Whoops. Don't worry folks, I screwed up a command, managed to copy the .pak files to my home folder instead of the game folder. All going fine!
