Itches, Glitches & Anything Else...

Recommended Posts

I have been having a lot of difficulty mapping since the update to 1.8.0 due to a two glitches.

 

1. Pressing 'W' after cloning a brush causes the engine to crash - this glitch is a new phenomenon

 

2. Sometimes, manipulating a patch vertex while in ('Q' mode) also causes DR to crash. This makes using patches impossible, because sometimes I will be able to successfully manipulate a vertex and then all of a sudden DR crashes and I lose all my progress.

 

3. Sometimes, simply drawing a new brush causes the engine to crash for no explicable reason

 

if anyone knows how to solve the above problems, I would really appreciate it because - as it stands - I cannot continue mapping. :(

Since 1.8.0. Dark Radiant doesn't remember my game settings. I have to re-setup my darkmod folder and the fms directory everytime I start DR or click preferences...

 

Another thing is that in the 2D-windows all brush lines disappear while I'm in Render mode (F3)

DR not remembering your settings is because somewhere in your path to your DR directory there is a " " (space).

 

Like C:\Program Files\ <--- no good. You can't have spaces in your DR directory path.

 

I also had this issue when I first set out :)

 

Just install DR in like C:\games\darkradiant or somewhere similar with no spaces.

 

Also, you don't want spaces in your path to darkmod.

What - really, are you serious!? :blink: This reminds me of MS DOS or something like that stuff :rolleyes:

 

Why are there so many oldish conditions like "There has to be no space" or "The Folder must be named darkmod" ?? I know I grump on a high niveau right now, but seriously..

Can you elaborate on this? What exactly is not being saved when DR has been installed in a path containing spaces?
