Did you try adding

bind "r" "toggle in_alwaysRun 0 1;"

to your Darkmod.cfg file?

Yeah, probably true. Some folks have legitimately expressed similar concerns over at the TDM forums so I thought I would answer abruptly. AluminumHaste just made a video that contradicts the sword complaint:

Youtu.be

So... difficult for some, too easy for others...

That may be true, however... Are any of them free and built by fans of Thief? That is who we cater to. If you don't like Thief 1 or Thief 2 you probably won't like this game. Sorry

The blackjack works only for non-alert guards. The sword is not supposed to be effective. This is a stealth game. You need to learn how to sneak around. If you don't like sneaking there are plenty of shooters and hack n slash games out there for you.

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.

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

Nearly every mission is ported. Notable exception being No Honor Among Thieves. Those are being bundled into a campaign and are nearly done

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