So, I've been having an issue: I keep freezing on the loading screen for missions. There's no real pattern to it, it just happens on random missions, including ones that I've played before without issue. I don't think it's me not giving the mission time to load, I usually wait about seven to ten minutes of the loading bar not moving at all before I do anything, and again, it's happening on missions I've played before without issue. Anyone else had this?


Because in mystery novels, the first suspect is almost certainly never the murderer. No matter how much unmovable evidence there is, it will all be smashed in pieces by the wrath of the remaining number of pages of the story.

Try the different options for:

image_mipmapMode

The default 2 offloads Mipmap generation to the OpenGL driver using GL2 standards,
then there is a legacy GL option 1, and finally, 0 reverts to the Mipmap generation
that ships with Doom 3.

This could be placebo, but I also think setting com_fixedTic 1 speeds up the process.

Mind explaining how one would do this?

Decide with value you want to give on image_mipmapMode, instead of the value "2".

To change this value you can do one of the following methods:

  • change the value in file darkmod.cfg, with your favo plaintext editor (like notepad, notepad++, vi, etc):
    Open darkmod.cfg and change the value "2" of line "seta image_mipmapMode"
  • Or open the darkmod console and enther the command:  image_mipmapMode 2
  • Start tdm with an argument: +seta image_mipmapMode 2

 

But to give us more information, please  create a log,

while loading a mission and post its content in a spoiler?
Use the arguments:
First a log for loading the game: +condump mylog.txt +quit
Then a log for loading a mission: +developer 1 +set logfile 2 +map training_mission
if you have difficulties to run tdm with arguments, use the tdm launcher.

I'm still not totally sure how to do these things. :/ Still, noted, I'll have to play around later.

CTRL + ALT + TILDE (~) will open the console.

 

Then type:

 

image_mipmapMode

 

and press ENTER

 

The console will report your current mode and the available options.

 

Then try typing

 

image_mipmapMode 0

 

and press ENTER

 

This will set you to Doom 3 style loading. (Not Driver Based).

 

Then close the console by CTRL + ALT + TILDE

 

and try starting a mission.

I did this.

 

It crashed as soon as I tried to start a mission. :P Might have been coincidence though, maybe I'm really just not waiting long enough on these loading screens.
