  1. Hello NeonStyle, I took an extended Internet hiatus between ca. 2009 and 2014 and then did not post on a public forums before I showed up here roundabout 2017 (I think). And I have never heard from someting like "Live for Speed".
  2. This is something I used for a custom AI script in an early alternate version of Down by the Riverside (Tales of the Riverside), which you can find [url=http://forums.thedarkmod.com/index.php?/topic/18402-fan-mission-down-by-the-riverside-by-dragofer-20160925/&do=findComment&comment=407828]here[/url]. The script is able to make an AI stop patrolling upon reaching its next path node. If you want the AI to stop immediately it would involve teleporting the path_corner to an inaccessible location, as I recall it. (I was aware of the StopMove event but in my experience it only caused the AI to twitch while carrying on with its patrol. Might be good for a free-roaming AI like a zombie though?)
  3. Hey, Every time I've try to use the Full Editor when PM'ing someone, and every single time I get an error. Whoever is in charge of the forum, is it possible that this could be fixed? Thanks Neon
  4. That point in time was at the peak of toxicity and after years of tolerance (or ignorance on my end) and after observing many valuable members ceasing activity on the forums I admittedly too lost my patience (we're all human after all) which also was the reason why I stopped frequenting the page for almost full 3 years. Again it was one of my threads (mind the ironic title of it "Growing the community" in a futile attempt to discuss how more users could be acquired) which got once again overrun (those were just the posts that ended up in the "Haunting of Deck 12" area and quite rightly so). IMO frequent events like this were pretty much the deathblow to that community. And now after almost 3 years of inactivity on my side on those forums, after simply updating my thread with the latest 2019 Venture progress (with only the few trolls remaining in an inactive/idle state) the trash posting seamlessly continued. Goes to show that there simply is no reasoning for me with that kind of unprecedented stubbornness/resilience.
  5. How you can help depends a lot on what skills you have. I can Record Video Recording "Let's Play" videos or simple walkthroughs of existing missions and posting them to Youtube is great exposure for the mod (see example .) Be sure to let us know so we can link to them. If you have some editing ability, Video tutorials, where you explain how the mod works, or how to use specific tools, would also be great. Video trailers, showcasing interesting places and features, are also great for publicity. An example is . I can Write Writing reviews for missions are always nice, especially if they include good screenshots. Not only does it give us something to post on other forums, but it makes mappers feel good when their mission gets attention (especially if it's positive). We have a collective thread to post reviews in: http://forums.thedar...s-walkthroughs/ Writing reviews of the mod as a whole, targetted an an audience that doesn't know much about TDM, is also very useful. You could also try offering your services to mappers to create interesting readables, or to proofread for their mission. I can Act and Record Audio We are always on the lookout for good quality audio recordings for vocal sets. If interested, you can pick a few different lines from this script: http://wiki.thedarkm...t:_Average_Jack and send the recordings to Springheel, who then writes a script based on the type of voice you have. I can Translate We could always use translations of our menu/hud into more languages. Also, only a few FMs are aavailable in more than one language, so there is a lot of work there, see the I18N Translator's Guide in the Wiki. I can Model Great! Take a look at the model request thread:http://forums.thedar...-requests-here/ and pick something that interests you. Or just post a, "Hey, anybody want a model?" thread in this forum and I'm sure mappers will get back to you. I can Animate Fantastic. We can always use more good animations. Our current character rigs use a Maya skeleton. PM Springheel for more info. I know C++ Have a look at our coding section in the wiki, pick an issue or feature from the bugtracker of the mod or the leveleditor, download the recent sourcecode release (or better ask for an SVN checkout) and get cracking. Make sure nobody is already working on that specific issue and feel free to ask questions. I can Edit Images We can always use completely new textures and/or improved versions of older textures. How to get started and how to import them into the mod. I can Take Photos Good quality photos of useful textures (medieval-ish building facades, dirt, rocks, wood, etc) are always welcome. The fewer directional shadows and higher resolution, the better. I don't have any skills Even if you can't do any of the above, you can still help out. Talk about TDM in other forums; share your (preferably positive) experiences with other gamers you know. Last, but not least, compliment people when you like their work. Saying "thanks", to a developer or, "I really enjoyed your mission" to a mapper will make their day. -------------------- I'll update this further as more things occur to me.
  6. Just finished with that one and now I’m about halfway through Springheel’s video series. The hard part I would say is simply restraining yourself until the learning curve is behind you. They literally break it down Barney style 101 and make it so easy. And never be afraid to ask for help. Being afraid to ask for help had me stuck on my first room for six months and the fix was a mere matter of folder structure, talk about dumb. Someone, somewhere has had the problem before and usually already has a solution. And time is never on our side; many of us have kids and full time jobs. I can only invest a couple hours of free time a week sitting in front of my computer and I’m always faced with the predicament: do I play a level, do I learn more about mapping, do I catch up on sleep? So just give it a try and mess around for fun, you might get hooked. Nevertheless, welcome to the forums I hope you have fun streaming!
  7. Glad to see the forums and wiki back up and running! Good work Taaaki, sounds like it's been quite a headache.
  8. I received an invite from one of your forum members so I thought it would be a good time to stop by and say hi. I'll start off by complimenting the DM team for their work in producing what is a truly amazing game mod. The website and forums are equally impressive and certainly up to the high standards set by your group. I am thoroughly impressed! Also your Wiki page has been an immeasurable help and I have been steering people there through my You Tube videos. While I am more of a lurker than poster I will keep an eye out for member questions and I will try to help where ever my limited idTech 4 and Doom 3 editor knowledge will permit. If there are game mechanics or sequences arising from the original Doom 3 game that I can explain or demonstrate, which may be of use to your members or other Id Tech 4 modders or DM creators, drop me a request and I'll do my best to explain or demonstrate them. I can answer either in these forums or use the issues as topics for my Doom 3 edit video series. Hopefully these contributions, meagre as they may be, can in some way contribute to the already impressive knowledge base that has emerged here. Again, thank you to the DM team for their amazing gift to us and I look forward to being a contributing member to this community!
  9. I saw that Twitch streamer playing A Score to Settle. He tells me he couldn’t find the link to register a new user on the forums. I tried looking too and logged out thinking it’d be in the top right by sign-in, so we are blind or it’s gone.
  10. While Taaaki has mentioned he is looking into a dark theme. In the meantime I would recommend a chrome addon that Epifire turned me onto called "Darkreader". It turns light pages darker, so currently my forums look like this:
  11. The forum theme change wasn't intentional. It's an unfortunate byproduct of a forum software update (see here: http://forums.thedarkmod.com/index.php?/topic/20010-it39s-alive33/&do=findComment&comment=438046). I'll have a look at installing a generic dark theme as an option while I work on importing and updating the old TDM theme to be compatible with the new forum version.
  12. I'd say TDM Wiki is as important as TDM forums, at least to mappers. I don't mind different forum layout or functions. Some dark theme would be nice, as this one is pure white.
  13. Thanks to ToKu over at Q3W forums who posted a 'stairwell generator' - That actually really did help a lot, because I threw the filename into Google and hoping to find some old lost FTP folders, and sure enough:- http://urtmaps.prkl.org/tools/ SurfaceGenerator is something that does pretty much what I was remembering. I read it even was based on the previous 'Mapgen' so I think it does everything. There are also a couple of terrain tools I was looking for, something called FATE. Sounds like it might be marginally better than EasyGen or GenSurf, but I'm not sure because I can't find it anywhere. (edit: a treasure-trove of Quake-mapping tools here:- https://www.quaddicted.com/files/tools/ ----------------------------- (edit: all I can find of FATE is this screenshot, but anyone who knows anything should instantly see why this tool would have been great to preserve! But I think it really is gone...)
  14. Best wishes for the replacement, taaaki. Having read this post and your other announcement on the forums, it seems you've gone about the backups methodically. I'd rather wait than have maintenance jump the gun on necessary replacements, so good luck with all the work this evening ! Hopefully we'll be back soon enough, once you finish all the necessary maintenance.
  15. Almost a whole week, end on end. I don't know the details about hosting provider, but if that's a professional hosting company, the response and resolution time is just downright terrible On our local Thief forum, we have like 1% users in comparison to what you see here, and we have a yearly fundraiser for hosting. We always get the required amount, usually with some surplus for next year or two. We did have a downtime once or twice, but never for such a long time. Maybe it's time to talk about new hosting provider? I'd be happy to contribute those few bucks a year to have a peace of mind and stable access to all the knowledge we have here, both on forums and wiki.
  16. Taaaki posted about it in an announcement I dont think the forums have ever been down for so long before.
  17. Finishing touches on the door, mostly tweaking the entity def. Can't say I like the pins system much, the default minimum value is takes too much time for my taste. I like the time system from Thief series much more. Actually scratch that^, I found value that I like for the easy lock, it's just the wiki entry on lockpicking contains misleading information. Lock_pins 0 actually takes longer to pick than lock_pins 1 (around 7 seconds vs. 3-4 seconds). I'll release the new package in a day or two, provided that forums will be up.
  18. Yes, that's generally the case. On rare exception, mappers sometimes "ask for ideas": http://forums.thedarkmod.com/topic/13674-wip-fm-the-elixir/?do=findComment&comment=283045 ...but it is more common that mappers will have their own ideas that they even "know how to implement" but do not have the time and energy to start working on them (or continue working on them) and will instead choose smaller, more feasible projects for fun. Even with the simple concept in "The Elixir", the mission turned out to be much smaller than the "Lord Edmund Entertains" idea I had originally envisioned. Still, it's cool to have at least one of my story ideas out there. There are similar "make it for me" threads over at AtariAge forums where players ask Homebrew and Rom hackers to somehow make Atari 2600 games for them based on their concept designs. They are predictably filled with requests that go well beyond what a 2600 can do. So many have been offered that they have made guidelines in the forums like: You should include concept art. You must be willing to attempt Batari Basic coding and Sprite editing.
  19. tried that to run TDM on android in this topic:http://forums.thedarkmod.com/topic/16672-trying-to-run-tdm-on-android/?hl= maybe possible with d3 and a very old version of tdm. read this topic for some pointers, d3 on the pi: https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=99624 (check also a video in the spoiler) or try steam link on your pi. https://steamcommunity.com/app/353380/discussions/0/1743353164093954254/ and http://forums.thedarkmod.com/topic/19432-tdm-on-steam-link-for-android/ video in the spoiler
  20. Hi guys, through the "cheats" topic I got the idea, that it would be quite useful, if there were tags for missions (the post was about removing the killing restriction in some missions to suit the prefered play style). I don't know how easy or difficult this is, but with them, it would be quite convenient to pick missions with playstyles, environment, etc one does want to use. This could also be expanded to other mission properties. I remember a discussion about climbable drains, handles on doors, that cannot be picked and other things the map author chooses for himself. That way these things would be clearer and as I said before, it is easier to choose missions with playstyles that suit oneself. What do think?
  21. Start here: http://www.ttlg.com/forums/showthread.php?t=87990 http://www.ttlg.com/forums/showthread.php?t=88056 http://www.ttlg.com/forums/showthread.php?t=88654 http://www.ttlg.com/forums/showthread.php?t=90309 http://www.ttlg.com/forums/showthread.php?t=96995
  22. I have the key, but no plans to play it until I get a new computer. By the time that happens they should have fixed most of the bugs. If there are deeper issues, that's too bad. Backing a Kickstarter/Indiegogo campaign is always a risk.
  23. In regards to following the player, is it not possible to make a change to this script? http://forums.thedarkmod.com/topic/14394-apples-and-peaches-obsttortes-mapping-and-scripting-thread/page-16?do=findComment&comment=396357 The script for that looks like this: object statue_look { void init(); void loopLook(); vector viewDir; vector direction; float cosine; float tolerance; }; void statue_look::init() { thread loopLook(); } void statue_look::loopLook() { while(1) { if (distanceTo($player1)<1024) { viewDir=sys.angToForward($player1.getViewAngles()); direction=getOrigin()-$player1.getOrigin(); cosine=viewDir*direction/sys.vecLength(direction); direction_z=0; if (cosine<sys.cos($player1.getFov()/2+30)) { setAngles(sys.VecToAngles(-direction)+'0 90 0'); } } sys.waitFrame(); } } If you remove the "if (cosine<sys.cos($player1.getFov()/2+30))" bit and it's associated brackets those statues now follow the player (it does bring up some smoothing problems but that's another thing). Couldn't you trigger that in the security camera script so that if it spots the player it will activate that follow the player script for a duration until the player has been out of sight for X amount of seconds?
  24. I subscribe to a forum post to receive email notifications whenever a reply is made. But after a period of time Im unsure of I find myself returning to the forums to see responses with no notifications. And when I click on the thread it shows Im not even subscribed anymore which causes me to miss a few responses. Is anyone else experiencing this?
  25. @Hagatha, Welcome to the game and the forums!
