Also, make sure you put the updater inside a folder named "darkmod"

You are referring to this link: Fidcal.com ?

You can try the 1.08 updater located here:

Moddb.com

It should upgrade itself then download the mod.

That said, since we've been featured on Slashdot.org our whole download infrastructure has been hit pretty hard. It might be better to get the file via the torrent until the traffic settles down.

To my knowledge, the "censorship" is more of a change in the way account bans work. Posts are taken-out with some ban methods.

I certainly don't see why anyone would censor praise for the mission and there are others in the thread who have offered commendations...

I believe the general sentiment by "management" is that they would like you to stick around the forums but also would like you to curb your "bad behavior". Given your stance on "free speach, social politics, etc" I imagine this an irreconcilable difference...

No matter the number of down-votes, the truth cannot be silenced. Awesome mods come from many games out there, not just the "favored" ones.

People need to expand their horizons rather than issue petty demotions to projects they likely have never tried. :)

For the 3rd year in a row, The Dark Mod has made it into the Top 100!

Thank you to all the voters!

(It would've been cool to share this ranking with our friends at "Hexen: Edge of Chaos" but there's always next year.)

@ice_trey

The original 1.3.1 patch (1.3.1.1302) was broken and caused many problems. Not long after id Software issues a replacement patch 1.3.1.1304. If you install the later patch, you shouldn't have any problems.

We (The Dark Mod) host a copy and reference this in our Wiki:

I didn't want to be premature about it but when Melan calls it a "must play" and Goldchocobo says its the best mission yet for TDM... Well, who am I to argue? I totally agree that it's either one of the best or the best mission. Too bad it's so new and didn't get included in our Top 5 mission vote. We'll have to hold another once a few more missions are released.

You need to change "the dark mod version 2.0 - standalone release" to "darkmod" in your folder path. At this time the folder name is hard coded. Version 2.01 will resolve this.

This is probably a driver bug with post processing. If you have an ATI card, try disabling Catalyst Control Center.

Stop by the forums to discuss. I would suggest reinstalling your graphics drivers or upgrading them. That's pretty poor driver design if in-game settings do not fallback after leaving a game (or crashing). Unfortunately OpenGL is not well tended by the GPU vendors... Which graphics card by the way?

Windows 8.1 Preview:

Thus far, on Intel HD graphics, TDM will not start unless it is started in Windows 7 compatibility mode:

Right click "TheDarkMod.exe" choose "Properties", click the "Compatibility" tab and select Windows 7 from the dropdown
list.

This may not be representative of other graphic hardware and may be due to early Windows 8.1 driver support.

Try downloading at a friend's house and then copy it to a flash drive to bring back home. TheDarkMod.exe should start from any folder as long as its named darkmod. It's completely portable. You could even leave it on the flash drive.

Voting for the Unusual Contest began at the end of September (or whenever the entrants released). We kept extending the deadline (with the approval of all mappers of course) to try to get more participants. We usually give about a month or so for players to vote. As for a new contest? We need to have mappers pipe-up and request one (here or at the forums). Most of the veterans at the forums are a little burned-out. Now that the game is standalone, perhaps we'll see a few new faces eager to show what they can do...

You probably have folder options set to hide known extensions. You need to disable that. Once you do that, try deleting your Darkmod.cfg and letting the game rebuild it.

UAC tends to slow-down or interfere with programs. Try disabling it temporarily...

Also try disabling Aero.

Also check your resolution and aspect ratio in Darkmod.cfg

For Threading Optimizations:

Wiki.thedarkmod.com

Open Nvidia Control Panel ->

Manage 3D Settings ->

Bottom half of list locate "Threaded Optimization" <-- Set to NO / Off

Also set "Multi-display/Mixed GPU acceleration" to "Single display performance mode"

@@@

Another option: Download the v1.08 build and then use the tdm_updater on that (sanity check).

What graphics card do you have? Do you have the latest drivers installed?

If you have an nvidia card, have you disabled "Threading Optimizations"? If you have an ATI\AMD card, have you disabled Catalyst AI?

What OS are you using?

Do you have UAC disabled?

Perhaps you have a corrupt install. You could try using the tdm_updater tool (available here at moddb or at the downloads area
for www.thedarkmod.com ) to verify that all files are correct.

From what I gather, we can expect a mission by mission release and we should have at least one of them this year. With Moonbo possibly joining the campaign team, it might go a little quicker still. (Yes, some folks are saying not to do the mission by mission thing... it's still being debated).

Meanwhile Grayman's got two more missions in beta for his William Steele campaign and Sotha's "Thomas Porter" series is 6 missions and a prequel strong...

Some missions might need more hardware. It depends on how large, how many lights, AI. I suggest that you try Tears of St Lucia and use that as a baseline for performance.

The lowest hardware anyone's reported playing TDM on is a P4 2.8ghz with an FX 5200. Realistically you'd want something with the equivalent CPU to a 2ghz AMD 64 and a GeForce 6800. I think the latest intel graphics are better than that now

Please make sure that your install folder is named "darkmod" (lower case) or missions with scripts will fail and saves won't work.

I believe we have TDM players on mint. I know that the Linux build can be a bit finicky because of the whole boost library mess. There are some plans to remove boost if possible as I recall.

Make sure you've installed to a folder named "darkmod". The script system needs this path currently (will be fixed in 2.01).
