  1. Oh ... then I clearly must be mistaking you with the LDAsh back from those forums being one of the few but ferocious supporters of those forum's biggest troll... Surely it must be another user just accidentally bearing the same nickname and couldn't possibly be you ... could it ?
  2. We are expected to tread on egg-shells around people who take criticism of projects and turn it into personal attacks and even explicit threats of violence... that won't turn out good for anyone. I was going to write a chunk of text, but I will leave it to simple logic - is it more likely that toxic stalkers are hot on his trail and following him around with ready-made sockpuppet accounts, or that he is dragging around this personality and flamewars ignite where he goes. These could be reasons why he is still looking very lonely all by himself here. http://forums.thedarkmod.com/topic/14015-idtech-coop-medievalfantasystealth-universe-projects/?p=437135 This is the best advice he can receive and only he can take it. We can't constantly sit and try to carefully spoon it into his frothing maw.
  3. Have you tried the 2.07 hotfix http://forums.thedarkmod.com/topic/19935-beta-testing-207-hotfix/
  4. Hi all, While playing Dishonered 2 this afternoon, I once again noticed that many apartments in the game are quite similar and when I thought about it, it occured to me that there actually are rooms that are present in each and every household. At the same time each type of room has some furniture that is very common for each room. So I thought, it might be a good idea to make a list of rooms that are usually present in different households, as well as furniture that is commonly present in each type of room. Of course, the quality of furniture and size of the room is strongly dependent on the wealth of the inhabitants, but I thought it might help some mappers to have some kind of list to turn to, when creating a new household, so they can easily see, if they forgot something or can get ideas on what to put into some of the rooms. I have started the list with these points (I put them in spoiler tags, as the list tends to get quite long). If you think this is a good idea, I would like to extend on the list and later on transfer it to the Wiki. Households Low income/poor: Very few rooms, mostly functionalShould include kitchen and bedroomMerchants/Craftsmen: Also few rooms, apart fromkitchen andbedroom a workshop and/or aroom for selling should be includedTavern/Inn: Kitchen,storage room,taproom,bedroom for guests and owners,bathroom (optional, may be exchanged with basins in guests' rooms)Nobels: Kitchen seperate from eating room,several bedrooms (depending on family size: seperate rooms for adilts and each child, additional bedrooms for guests possible),at least one bathroom (toilet inside or seperate),separate office/library, sitting roomRooms Kitchen: stoveworking spacecupboard for cutlery and dishestable and chairs/stoolsStorage Room: shelves and hooks for food stuffbottles (various)barrels (especially in taverns)various containers (boxes etc)Bathroom: bathtubbasin for washingcupboard for bathing suppliesBedroom: bed(s)nightstandcupboard for clothingLiving Room: tablearmchairsbookshelve(s)lamps or similar for lightother leisure time stuff (instruments, knitting needles, board games, stuff like that)Office / Study: desk with chairbookshelve(s) Workshop: tools of the tradeworkbenchstoolTaproom: several tables with chairsopen fireplace with armchairs (optional)bar
  5. This is not about consumerism, it's what happens when you post your stuff on the web, especially on a platform that enables interaction and feedback. If you don't like feedback, e.g. post your YT videos with comments blocked, or don't post on public forums. Demanding that feedback should be always be "cool and encouraging" is childish. If you take criticism as personal attack, or need constant patting on the back, then you're too insecure to take feedback anyway. I often bounce my ideas and WIPs off different people, some of them awfully opinionated (more than me, as hard as it is to believe), and I am still able to filter out the "noise" (aka the stuff irrelevant to me, as I typically know what I like) to pick out things that can be useful and worth iterating upon. And even those opinionated types have valid points sometimes.
  6. Hi all, me again Now that I've learned how to take screenies on DM (thanks to Aluminumhaste) I wanted to post one that I took but I got an error saying that the image ext that I used was not allowed in these forums, It was .jpg so I changed it to .png and I got the same error again. They're on Photobucket.
  7. Thank you very much, I've already downloaded it ! I'll see what I can do. Yes, come to think of it, the voice sounded a bit different to your's. I might add this to Andros' resume in the voice actors article on the wiki. What tags would you and the others recommend for the official trailer ? I'd like to give it at least the same tags as you have on your own channel. ---- Minor update: The trailer has been uploaded to our channel and set as the introduction video. Every unsubscribed person will see it.
  8. I'm wondering if anyone ever checks new posts in the Fan Missions Forums? I've posted 4 questions asking for help for 4 different missions that I can't finish because I"m stuck, and I don't get any help. I posted a question this morning so I don't expect an answer right away for that one. Its frustrating because I would like to finish them. I've read through the posts for each mission and I'm not getting anything from them. If there's someone who could help me I'd really appreciate it. Thanks I guess I'm spoiled from the TTLG forums.
  9. dmap is a command in TDM's own console, not DR's (there used to be a semi-implemented dmap in DR but it was removed some time ago). Prefabs are collections of brushes, patches and/or entities, so you can resize the brushes and patches, and use the scaling tool on the entities with models (after ungrouping if the prefab's been imported as a group). If this is a lamp with an LWO or ASE model, you can use the scaling tool (one of the buttons on the left of the main window, with the tooltip Model Scaler). Someone else will have to help with the crash problem; in the past greebo has fixed crashes when I sent him crash dumps, but according to http://forums.thedarkmod.com/topic/19955-darkradiant/?do=findComment&comment=436732 he might be unavailable, in which case probably OrbWeaver is your best hope.
  10. Hello, everyone! I've done some searches in the forums, and looked in the troubleshooting on the wiki, but there's a problem that's been in Dark Mod for the past version or two that's now prevalent enough for me to log in and report. Not sure if it's an issue with the Dark Mod itself or just one model of light that someone developed and is using in more and more missions, but it's driving me nuts. In several missions, electric lights are used and the tone the game has them emanate...well, I'm supposing it's supposed to be a soft hum, but instead it's a piercingly loud sine wave kind of tone, like you'd hear if you were taking a hearing aid test. It's literally deafening compared to the sounds in the rest of the game, and as more and more levels use this light, it's really cutting down on the levels I want to play. Since no other users seem to be reporting this, I'm wondering if it's because of my particular audio configuration. I am using EAX (through Creative ALchemy) on Windows 10 on a current Sound Blaster card, so I'm wondering if somehow the EAX processing is making the sound so damn loud. The latest mission that seems to have this sound is "In The Black." I'm including a screenshot of one of the lamps in question. This one is in kind of an odd spot on an internal balcony railing, and I can hear it buzzing from well down the hall in another room. There are other rooms that have several of these lamps as well. Is there any kind of tweaking I can do in the .pk4 files to silence this model of lamp until the issue is resolved? I really want to be able to play these missions without being deafened. I'm up for any kind of troubleshooting, or if you'd like me to make a recording from a USB mic of how loud the tone is compared to other sounds in the game to hear exactly what I'm experiencing.

  14. As per Duzenko's request here: http://forums.thedarkmod.com/topic/19650-glsl-custom-shaders-a-mapper-wanted/page-2?do=findComment&comment=427749 Currently we can't use bloom with lights as efficiently as in other engines. Blend add mode, along with emissive texture does not allow the light to be bigger than actual bounds of a model, even with high bloom intensity settings. Example: Now in other non-PBR engines like UDK, you have Emissive slot in your material definition, and you can use that texture with multiply operation to achieve this effect: In TDM, you have to fake this effect with transparent particle, which takes more time to make, adds resources and needs more processing power. It would be great to have this effect only through post processing, as in image above.
  15. I've tried to hunt it down on the forums, but no luck to date. Maybe some of the main devs might remember.
  16. Thought this might interest some of you here - there's a PnP RPG on Kickstarter right now called Project Dark that's supposedly able to closely emulate stealth games. Other things of note: - Card-based mechanics in combination with dice - Optimised for 1-2 player-characters Also based on a brief exchange, it seems the developer's a fan of PC stealth games like Thief. Project looks pretty cool overall, and although I haven't played any games that use cards for conflict resolution, the pitch has me intrigued, if only because running a game set in the Thief world sounds awesome. Too bad existing backers won't get a copy of the rules until March Edit - oh yeah, link here:
  17. Select the text, and use the Special BBCode button. Specify the "Spoiler" BBcode. That wraps the text in spoiler tags. Or you can do it manually, by adding [ spoiler] at the start of the text, and [ /spoiler] at the end (except, don't add the space after the open bracket; I did that so that you could see it in the message).
  18. 1- Zoom the 2D views toward the mouse location. I couldn't find any option for this in the settings, so I'm assuming this isn't in DR at all. This would make zooming in and out much easier. 2- A search feature on model/skins/texture/etc browsers. I noticed that in some cases if you press Space a text field appears, and it seems like that's some form of search thingy, but doesn't seem to work very reliably. This would make things much easier to find, regardless of how they are organized in the folders. You could always just search for it. Find "by name" might be enough for most purposes, and would be golden in itself, as far as I'm concerned. Although if more could be suggested about this, I'd say it would be something like how Hammer categorizes things with tags that allow for search filters (can also use material keywords for filtering textures). 3- Simplified wireframe on models (optionally just a bounding box). So that models wouldn't turn the 2D views into incomprehensible messes so quickly, but it would also help more easily seeing where model boundaries are exactly, for positioning/alignment purposes and such. Also one more, that I forgot: 4- Add an acceleration factor to the camera movement speed. Since there's no quick way to change it back and forth between fast and slow (have to press P, click camera, change speed, click ok, every time) this would make it easier to do small adjustments to camera position while still keeping the speed high enough to taste, and so that if you kept the movement key pressed you still quickly fly away to that far place you want. This is how it works in Hammer. I think its acceleration factor must be pretty high, so that small taps barely move the camera, but a continuous press almost instantly accelerates you to max speed.
  19. What is done is done. I'm sure Bikerdude will move on to other things and I'm also certain that this community will continue thrive. There's been a lot of talk about Bikerdude creating a lot of unnecessary drama in these forums but I've also noticed something else. In the process of calling him out on his infractions, members of this community resorted to name calling, profanity, personal attacks etc... This type of behavior is a toxic cancer. It not only reflects poorly on the author(s) of these comments but it also reflects very poorly on TDM as well so I was surprised that it wasn't addressed as it goes directly against the Forum Rules posted by Springheel. To quote The Social Network movie, "The Internet's not written in pencil, it's written in ink." Aside from all of that, I can't help but wonder if all of this could have been avoided. At some point, Bikerdude asked to be banned but for whatever reason his request was denied. Fine, that was a decent gesture of goodwill on your part but knowing what you already knew, it would have been wise to setup some simple conditions to his membership chiefly, he could no longer work on anyone else's maps (no exceptions) but he could continue to post suggestions in these forums and he could make his own maps (no collaborations). If there were any further transgressions he would be immediately and permanently banned. Maybe it would have worked, maybe it wouldn't have worked but I can assure you that the final results would have been far less messy. With all that being said, I agree with Dragofer & nbohr1more and what they said in their posts. How does someone ask for help for a particular problem but instead they get a very different result (map redesign) but they still go ahead and publish their map and then at some later point, they cry foul? That just doesn't add up. Edit: I mistakenly forgot to mention Dragofer when I originally posted this so I corrected this oversight.
  20. Seconded. He asked a hardware-related question in a Tech Support section of the forums, he can do whatever benchmarks he wants to.
  21. I just checked. Seems you do need special permission to edit/add to the wiki... I thought maybe my forum login would allow me access to the login page on the wiki too, but appears not. I'm guessing the same people who moderate the forums have the ability to grant access to the wiki as well?
  22. Oh, right, spoiler tags. Here is the content of mylog.txt after I start TDM with the start argument:
  23. Thanks for the logs. (please keep this topic clean, by placing the content of the logs between spoiler-tags.) like this. Cant see any error messages in the logs, thats with the problem to do with it. So, whats the content of mylog.txt, after you start tdm with the following startargument? +gfxinfo +condump mylog.txt +quit
  24. Thanks for testing. This help us too, to help other players in the future on their first-run. Some on the internet say, to also install the vcrun2015 component. Please install it and check it reaction. A black screen with sound is a video problem. You can solve this by change things in the tdm config file or run tdm with start-arguments. Run TDM windowed mode and low screen resolution: make a backup of the file "darkmod.cfg" (by make a copy of it) Then open the file with a texteditor, change the following values and save the file. r_customHeight 600 r_customWidth 800 r_fullscreen 0 If this works on your system, then you can change the video settings from the tdm main menu. If not, we need some logs. Create in playonmac a shortcut to the tdm executable and fill in some start arguments. (Configure button > select dark mod container > General tab > "Make a shortcut from this virtual drive" button)", select the dark mod exe inside the darkmod folder) After you created the shortcut in playonmac, hit the configure button again, select the darkmod container, then the darkmod exe shortcut and select tab "general" and where you can enter arguments in the "Arguments" input. we need to see how tdm loads. please create a log for us. using the start arguments: +gfxinfo +condump mylog.txt +quitThis generates a textfile inside the tdm folder and automaticly close tdm. We want to see the content of that file. (in spoiler-forum tags, please) If changeing the values for low resolution and windowed moded in the darkmod doesnt work Then use start arguments: +set r_customHeight 600 +set r_customWidth 800 +set r_fullscreen 0(or change these values in the darkmod.cfg file,) If this works on your system, then you can change the video settings from the tdm main menu. Folow the following tdm wiki article: http://wiki.thedarkmod.com/index.php?title=Debugging_TDM_systemerrors
  25. Is it something we want to add to the engine? https://www.epicgames.com/unrealtournament/forums/filedata/fetch?id=343728 If so, does it need to be per material or per entity?
