Installation trouble

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I'm trying to install The Dark Mod on a Toshiba P200 running Linux Debian/Jessie. I have followed wiki pages and read the FAQ. I don't know where is my mistake.

 

When I launch ./thedarkmod.x86, I only obtain a black screen.

 

To install The Dark Mod, I have created .doom3/darkmod in my home directory. I have downloaded doom3-linux-1.3.1.1304.x86.run to install doom3 (in default directory /usr/local/games/domm3). I have checked that doom3 runs fine. I can lauch doom3 but as I don't have serial number, it stops with a dialog and ask for a serial number.

 

I have downloaded The Dark Mod in .doom3/darkmod with tdm_update.

 

In FAQ, I have seen that some graphic card do not like compressed textures. Thus, I have modified .doom3/darkmod/Darkmod.cfg to add :

 

set r_mode "-1"
set r_customwidth "1440"
set r_customheight "900"
seta r_aspectratio "2"
seta image_usePrecompressedTextures "1"
seta image_useNormalCompression "2"
seta image_useAllFormats "1"
seta image_useCompression "0"
seta image_preload "1"

 

but it doesn't work as expected.

 

When I redirect TDM output in a file, I obtain :

I don't understand why TDM believes that graphic adapter only has 64 MB of VRAM. I have tried to run TDM with +set sys_videoRam 256 MB with the same result. I suppose that trouble comes from :

WARNING:Couldn't load image

 

P200 contains :

- Intel® Core™2 Duo CPU T7500@2.20GHz

- RV630/M76 [Mobility Radeon HD 2600]

 

VGA driver is radeon with direct rendering (I have checked with glxinfo | grep rendering).

 

Where is my mistake ?

 

Best regards,

I'm not sure how this works for Linux , but for Windows users there is a Standalone that doesn't require Doom 3 at all.

Wait for an admin to reply , I'm kinda clueless and don't know why I posted this in the first place.

You don't need Doom3 at all since TDM 2.0 is completely standalone. You can move the "darkmod" directory anywhere you want provided it is still named "darkmod". Since you snipped most of the GL_ info from the console dump, it's hard to tell for certain, but you will likely need to install and enable s3tc support. I assume that the lib you mention above provides that, so you should be good to go after that.


I am the bat. The night is mine.
