doom 3


Hello
I have some questions about doom 3.
Is it possible to use doom 3 on linux?
If so, does it have a linux installer on the dvd?
Or do i need to download a special linux installer?
Can you use mics on multiplayer?
Thanx Hylke

Yes Doom 3 can run on linux natively
I'm not sure about the dvd, on the cd version I had to download the installer.
And I haven't really played multiplayer yet.

Ok, thank you for your reply.
I've just orderd doom 3 from amazon.co.uk, it was so damn cheap, it was only 30 pounds(shipping to the netherlands included), that is about $ 55(if the dollar value wasn't that high it was so damn cheap).
