Back again... probably only to disappear for at least another fortnight. Must be nominative determinism.

I always find these "under the hood" type things really fascinating: https://www.polygon.com/2017/9/8/16263050/game-design-magic-tricks

I'm probably late and all but does anyone know what is the ambiance called in 2001: A Space Odyssey during Dr Heywood's team fly over the surface of the moon that was apparently borrowed into the Thief games?

    Not sure what the name of that sequence is directly in Space Odyssey but there's a name for that kind of harmonic layering. Good thing I can't think of what it's called either tho :P

I got a hard drive that vibrates so much that you can feel it on the outside of the PC case! Is that a bad sign? It is brand new. But damn, I never saw one induce so much vibration.

    @Biker - But he said it's a brand new drive. Perhaps defective?

Anyone else fail to get TDM 2.05 to run in latest Wine? (it used to run great)

    nevermind, thedarkmod.exe did not get updated by the Linux updater, leading to trouble when trying to run it in wine. Running the Windows TDM updater fixed it.

I'm running Linux and Windows on Ryzen side by side with VGA passthrough. I couldn't pass a USB hub into the VM though, so I had to make the power button on the case detach the keyboard/mouse from the VM, using a script. lol With VGA passthrough, you can't use a traditional escape sequence like you would with VMware.

    surely thats just a case of drivers? or if not that a replacement KVM?

    What's that? starting a new project while you have a lot of unfinished ones? Nope, never done that before.

By the way, I know some people mentioned improving lighting skills, and I finally found an article that actually discusses some of the theory behind lighting that I can comprehend: http://www.blog.radiator.debacle.us/2015/03/lighting-theory-for-3d-games-part-2.html

    He kind of repeats all the stuff I got saved in presentations elsewhere (he uses some of them as quotes in his articles), but that's ok.

    I think he says mostly obvious things... but might be a good read to a person new to mission design.

    Yeah, demagogue, in part 5 of the article he mentions The Dark Mod because of how it undoes the hard shadow features of idTech4, which is pretty neat.

    And mostly I had issues with other materials being circulated here in regard to lighting because they didn't really explain the function of lighting and its placement.

    one of my favorite reads :) buuut it also makes me a bit frightened at how robust these systems become, even though they are built far from robust. It's some kind of magic, for sure haha. Like you have ways of calculating things that are errorprone, but because they are, they don't show up in the game. they were simply avoided/worked around. Rock solid, but not really :D

How can we get a copy of the KOMAG fan mission archive for the Thief series? Could someone set it up on Mega or something? I think they provide 50GB for free, which is quite high, surely high enough.
