Okay, you are probably busy with the Steam thing right now, but I noticed something else that should be fixed regarding the missions: On the server side "A" and "The" are part of the name and the missions are sorted by it. On the local side this is not the case as they are appended to the end. This again makes comparing the mission list complicated but would be as easy to fix as the campaign names, once we have permission to change the darkmod.txt files in the pk4s to reflect the server side list.

 

Update: I tested one of the affected missions and the readme did indeed show the correct name, so there must be some kind of mechanism in the main program that splits "A" and "The" of the name front and appends them to the back. This means we need an internal fix, but at least we don't have to ask for more permissions ;).

By the way this issue is in the bugtracker for a while: http://bugs.thedarkm...iew.php?id=4060


 "I really perceive that vanity about which most men merely prate — the vanity of the human or temporal life. I live continually in a reverie of the future. I have no faith in human perfectibility. I think that human exertion will have no appreciable effect upon humanity. Man is now only more active — not more happy — nor more wise, than he was 6000 years ago. The result will never vary — and to suppose that it will, is to suppose that the foregone man has lived in vain — that the foregone time is but the rudiment of the future — that the myriads who have perished have not been upon equal footing with ourselves — nor are we with our posterity. I cannot agree to lose sight of man the individual, in man the mass."...

Ah, I didn't know that! So until this has been resolved in the main mod everybody who is as annoyed by this as I am can use a little patch I made to fix this which I uploaded to the ModDB, see below. Of course I will delete it once TDM has the correct mission names included!
