nbohr1more @ 2013 Mod of the Year KICKOFF!

Is EA looking to collect mod to indie crossovers like Dear Esther? They'd better think hard about their stance on mods then. I suspect a great number of contributors here would rip-up an EA check in favor of going to Valve or heading down to Kickstarter (etc). Time for an EA rep to grace us with some carefully manicured words...

I'm not a Steam hater but I must admit that I have mixed feelings about them being a "gateway drug" for popular acceptance of DRM. Yes, I must admit, if we are forced to have DRM in our lives it should be as well designed as the Steam version... I think the Greenlight thing might happen. I just need to read over the legalize of the TOS with our resident legal man and start moving on it.

You might be able to use an old version (v1.07 or earlier) but now with our own executable you'd need to merge the source code from that project to get it working. Not to mention that TDM, even as a mod does some executable hooks from the dll to get extra access to pixel buffers for the light gem. If DIII4A has a radically different renderer, the you'd need to figure out how to feed the light gem it's data. I presume you are trying to run this on a gpu with at least 256m of ram right? Even at that size you'd need to downsize textures and bump maps for the medium size missions. I suppose you could go nuts and downsize everything to 32x32 or something. Good luck and let us know how it works.

Here's a thread:

Forums.thedarkmod.com

the list might need to be updated because Requiem and Lords and Legacy are quite good too.

I will open a thread about non-horror missions.

That said many missions run the gamut of themes which includes some horror\undead areas (just like Thief 1). Even amongst the Top 10 horror list, many of the listed missions have significant non-horror portions.

Thanks Bliccer! I also hope that you catch a few minutes and get a chance to make a mission. :)

Well, it works for me...

My respect to TDM Core Team - everything seems to work just out of the box!

For lazy testers, I have uploaded some binaries: follow: Forums.thedar...post__p__302111 but look for TDM2.OSX10_7_i386.tar.bz2

Sources are in my git repo, currently in the branch: TDM2.00_OSX_PORT_00 .
Note that i was forced to use clang for compiling - read osxBuild.sh for more details .

Have Fun!

Did you try adding

bind "r" "toggle in_alwaysRun 0 1;"

to your Darkmod.cfg file?

There's in in-game mission downloader but I will be uploading a pack to moddb

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.

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.

No need for any version of Doom 3 anymore. This is a free standalone game now.

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.

No Honor Among Thieves (3 mission campaign) has been repacked in campaign format (no longer 3 separate map files) and made compatible with TDM 2.0

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.
