Installed successfully, also added the missing .pk4 files. But it will not run. It goes fullscreen, 2 seconds loading screen then crashes. Here are my logs:



my specs:

but when i would install doom3-bin it would run, but then it would ask me for a CD-Key even though i had already placed all the .pk3 in /opt/doom3/base/

(Also for doom3-dedicated to run i had to do ln -sf /opt/doom3/doom.x86 /opt/doom3/doomded.x86. Didt know where else to ask thanks!)

OK, thanks for the info. I'll switch to doom3-bin.

The scons scripts to build the source code only work with python2 (thus the error @chovy experienced). Someone would need to port them to python3. If you don't want to build the source code, then you can look into doom3-bin which simply uses the upstream binary.

Is there any chance that the python2 dependency will be replaced by python3 ? As far as I understand, it is a build dependency, so not needed for running the program itself. I just checked that scons 3.x runs with python2 and python3, and it is available in the extra repository. However, I don't know if any of the scons scripts can be run with python3 directly or need to be converted.

I'm asking this because I've recently put some effort in getting rid of python2 on my system and I'd prefer not to get it back, as python2 has reached EOL quite some time ago.

@chovy - scons uses Python and the doom3 scons scripts require Python2. I updated the dependencies to use scons2 from the AUR.

I also applied the patch @sxw mentioned and created another patch for a math constant that changed over the years.

scons: Reading SConscript files ...
  File "/home/ettinger/bin/doom3/src/doom3.gpl/neo/SConstruct", line 197

    print 'Loading build configuration from ' + conf_filename + ':'


SyntaxError: Missing parentheses in call to 'print'. Did you mean print('Loading build configuration from ' + conf_filename + ':')?

==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().

Changing the line to

if ( abs( (double)(m_speed - PRIMARYFREQ) ) > 5 ) {

got it going.
