i have one for half what you paid : https://www.instant-gaming.com/fr/978-acheter-cle-steam-doom-3-bfg-edition/?gclid=Cj0KCQjwlf_MBRDUARIsAD8Gj8D1BxI6CdfjnHgQeNrP01urF4BR9W_5jJAAVOqPmtWKs7dnj89nni0aAuOIEALw_wcB

it is idiot to buy on steam [that shows same price as gog : $5 or 5 Euros] ...prices of keys can be very interesting ...

Not so fast...

On steam currently original Doom3 is offered for 1.24 $/

http://store.steampowered.com/app/9050/DOOM_3/

And when I open the GOG.com Doom3 BFG profile link I read that only Singleplayer is supported.

https://www.gog.com/game/doom_3_bfg_edition

Can anyone confirm the GOG Singleplayer only statement ? If so that would be a major turn off.

SP-only wouldn't surprise me - the Steam Version uses Steamworks for multiplayer (finding servers etc).

I can imagine that manually connecting to a server via /connect in the console still works, but haven't tried myself.

on GOG version the MP gui button says "multiplayer services not available". 

The map folder has the MP map in there.

When trying to load a MP map in the console it says it cant load the map (but the maps .resources are there)

Gog version has a built in option for 3d glasses support.  Is this normal?  I thought you needed a custom exe for that?

I got it so I could use the GPL D3 BFG engines with it honestly. 

I'll need to download/compile a new client to see if those work.

Console says "D3BFG 1.1400.346456"

Thanks for the details Friar.

As an mp only player I'll have to pass on the GOG offer but I am sure the SP players will appreciate this move.

Someone please post the size of the doom3bfg.exe & the folders that contain the data.  I'd like to see the difference.  Maybe mp is something that can be fixed via gpl.

Does using the compiled gpl code let you do mp with the steam version?

The RBDOOM-3-BFG build supports multiplayer using the console +connect command to connect to someone else's lobby.

So yes custom recompiled builds of D3 BFG do support multiplayer.

Could be then no official MP because by default it goes through steam.

Any way for me to find a lobby so I could try the connect command?

From gog.com's forums, adding "seta net_useplatformbackend 0" to a autoexec or default.cfg's should enable mp.
