I've managed to install the latest versions of both TDM and DR from the downloaders from the main page.
However, since doing this there have been nothing but problems in DR (TDM seems to work fine).
When attempting to start work on a new level - something simple as the first brush to start sketching out a building layout, there are many errors thrown the respond in DR hanging and force-killing the process, eg:
[shaders] materials/tdm_epi_shader.mtr: shader transformer_gauge already defined. [shaders] materials/tdm_epifire_furniture.mtr: shader leather_chair_001 already defined. [shaders] materials/tdm_stone_natural.mtr: shader textures/darkmod/stone/natural/rough_greyblue01 already defined. [SoundManager]: SoundShader with name tdm_ai_commander_there_you_are already exists. [shaders] Unable to load texture: _default
All modules appear successfully loaded and
This happens no matter what texture I use, although some fail harder than others. Not a single one appears in the textures box none appear in the camera view except to say, "shader not found".
The result is that, after the brush is placed and the tdm folder texture is applied to one or more faces (before hollowing), that DR either displays it as "nodraw" or outright crashes.
This is a fresh install of both TDM and DR after hiatus and I'm pretty sure I've not entirely forgotten how to use the kit...
I've even nuked the prefs. file in roaming.
After spending 5-6 hours on trying to figure this out yesterday and another 4 today - I can't sort it...
Is there something very different about this version that I'm missing, or is there an older version with which I am used to using that is available to download for building, etc..?
What is odd is that the few older maps I have kept on an archive drive load up find and work well, except the lighting is missing entirely from all sections...
Any advice as to what I'm missing out or doing wrong here would be greatly appreciated.
