No no ...1.0000006 was never official worldwide.


GSC was also the publisher of SoC in Russia, hence they can do whatever they want there. However in the rest of the world THQ is the publisher and for whatever reason decided 1.006 wouldn't be released.

As far as I can tell from a bit of searching, 1.3.1 is the latest official release from iD, hence it is on Steam.

And it isn't about "official" sites with regards to the Steam version; the publisher must submit specific patches to Valve, which then get uploaded. THQ didn't submit 1.006, iD did submit 1.3.1.

ok cool, that makes sense



I'd like to see Steam end up with the 1.0006 patch as it's solely multiplayer and it includes the BattlEye anti-cheat system. Any Steam player wanting to play online is out of luck. The last time i looked (yesterday) there were no 1.0005 servers.

THQ submitted 1.0005 to steam yet their site only mentions 1.0004

...now I have a headache, time to play a game

Also, re: Doom3, a fresh install of 1.0 will ask you to update to 1.3.1 if you use the ingame updater.

Patch versions on Steam do my head in sometimes, especially when the users go nuts at Valve over something they have little to no control over ; one of us (Steam mods) has to wade in and clean up the mess.

You Valve fanboy* you

It's incredible the power that some posters attribute to Valve in regards to third party games. I like LOL'ing at the ones who get so worked up they can't differential Valve from Steam


* For the record, the extent of my steam account only makes me a fan who happens to be male - quite a different prospect
