DNF FAQ

Advanced FAQ | Glossary

We took this right off the 3D Realms forums, so it's all official. We'll update this section with real information once we get the full scoop on DNF.

1) Release dates. This includes the latest magazine or website article that claims to know an insider who knows when. They don't. Simple as that. Also, ignore ALL release dates unless you hear them from us. This includes EB Games, Amazon, or anywhere else. We/3D Realms will tell you when it's getting really close, and we will tell you when it's done. We promise.

2) How long the game has taken to develop. 3D Realms had too few programmers early on. Some tech took too long to do. They switched engines and started over a time or two. And a bunch of other stuff. Point is, we know it's late, and you know it's late. Let's stop talking about it, ok? There is no new way you can think of to tell us how long the game has taken - we've heard 'em all.

3) System Specs: They are going to be steep. You will need a video card with pixel shaders. A GeForce 3 will be about the minimum card, and ideally you will want something like the latest ATI or nVidia card. As for CPU? The more the better. A 1Ghz is a pretty slow machine these days, and you're probably going to want a 2 Ghz or better. DO NOT buy hardware for the game now!! Wait until it's done and see where things are then.

4) When will 3D Realms release media? A new screenshot or video? When will we release some? When 3D Realms is ready. Asking about it every other day isn't going to help and it isn't going to hurry them. We know people are curious, and we're excited at the prospects of showing you new stuff, but not right now. Please don't ask. Just be patient.

5) Will you port DNF to Linux/Mac/Xbox/PS2/Xbox 360/PS3/Revolution/etc.. The decision on what to port DNF to hasn't been made, and won't be made until the game is about ready to be released (or after it's done - we simply don't know yet).

6) Please don't ask "Will Feature X be in DNF?" - There are a lot of threads where people ask if a specific feature will or will not be in the game. 3D Realms is really not going to confirm/deny specific gameplay/design questions. There are several reasons for this. First, things change over time and you never know what feature will make it. Second, why would we spoil the game by detailing all the nuts and bolts of it? There is something to be said for discovering things when you play.

6a) This also includes things like "What's the progress of this feature", and "What percentage done are you?" - both of these things are release date concepts or are attempts to ask for more info. Both are things we'd prefer you didn't ask.

7) Co-op Mode: There won't be any. There won't be any in an addon, either. There's been an excessive amount of forum threads posted about co-op in the past, and they all end up in "there won't be any". Save yourself the trouble and don't ask.
