I help HappyCheeze?
I've been busy with v2.05 development and neglected the updates here.
When you launch tdm_update, click the Advanced button and then select "keep mirrors" and "do not allow tdm_update to update itself" then retry the update.
Congrats! Not sure why Hallowed Mod has usurped you but let it be known that Arx EOS is the God-tier modding!
It's back up now. Taaaki has prevailed!
Yeah, the site is currently down. Pray to Taaaki for server recovery.
End user beta in a few days. July 1st is the target release date. This will be a large bugfix release. Some of the bigger projects have been tabled for 2.05 because they were taking too long.
This is why I call TDM's engine "Id-Tech-Bikerdude". :)
Someone has got it mostly working here:
Thanks from The Dark Mod team for the nod!
It's a little surprising that we're getting so little feedback on the first Crucible of Omens release since fans have been asking about a TDM campaign for a long time. The release also answers the question "can TDM do a big city mission?" with a resounding yes (someone dared to ponder if it is too big at the forums, lol)...
Congrats to all the entrants!
It's out! :)
Mission is now in the in-game downloader.
Biker added a last minute minor fix to that one (because of OCD).
OK, it seems that Biker got tied-up so here's an upload in the interim:
If you don't want any funny business with future updates to the mission, just delete it from your FMS folder and get it from the in-game downloader once it's available there.
The mission will arrive in the in-game downloader soon.
I will also upload a copy here at Moddb.
This requires TDM 2.03 so you'll need to update to play it if you aren't on the latest build.
Thank you to The Dark Mod voters!
Hopefully you'll like what is about to be announced soon-ish ;)
You mean TDM v2.04?
It's still being developed. We planned a more ambitious release but it looks like we may need to release a bug-fix release before all those additions are completed. So if that's the case, 2.05 becomes the next big target release and 2.04 gets some nice bug fixes but not many new features.
It's all up in the air right now.
October 2015 contest entries are starting to arrive:
There is some ongoing work there but progress is slow. The William Steele series is still very active and was waylay-ed by v2.03 development but Grayman will be less active for v2.04 coding so he'll have more time to continue there.
Make sure your darkmod folder isn't set to read only.
Also, try downloading the latest updater from www.thedarkmod.com
Do you have hearing set to hardcore?
We've been pretty much feature complete since v1.06. Everything beyond that has been optimization, refinement, and enhancements which is something we plan to continue doing. That said, the next release (v2.04) is planned to have some big architectural changes and visual enhancements and beyond that I am thinking that the releases will taper down in terms of scope.
If you are asking about an "official campaign" there are some plans to bring at least a few of those to fruition.
That said, you can play the entire 7 mission "Thomas Porter" from start to finish "right now". (Sotha is now a team member so that is as close to official as there is.)
The Dark Mod v2.03 is out! Article will be arriving soon...
Make sure your darkmod folder is not set to "Read Only" and that it has permissions for the user you are running the updater as. Also, it's best if you create your darkmod folder right on the root of the drive. Eg. C:\darkmod
C'mon, google "4chan Euro Truck Simulator" and you'll see it's a running meme with them. They find this thing hilarious. Of course they'll vote for it. Is the point of MOTY to be "the thing that 4chan finds hilarious"?
Hard to say things will change, to them "ratings is ratings" so the massive traffic spike from the 4chan crew is "a good thing" the problem is that it isn't a sustainable thing and when advertisers get wind that they are advertising to bots then the house of cards will fall. Depends on who wants to upset the apple cart with a little dose of truth at the upper management levels on both sides. I get the impression that the corporate heads of both sides of this equation would rather live in the fantasy world that these bot votes are real end-user eyeballs...
Ahh, a little googling shows that 4chan has weighed-in on the whole MOTY scene with this little ETS2 upset. Now that they know they can do it, I expect more troll-style winners next year...
Hmm, I've always used WASD for directional controls so I'm not quite sure why you have "L-Alt" for the "back" (S) direction?
We have opened a ticket at BountySource to request that someone port GPU skinning from BFG to Vanilla Doom 3:
Yeah, I think that something in newer compilers or OS updates is setting this to Read Only by default since we only started seeing this type of problem around TDM 2.0.
