Glad that helped.

I updated our Performance wiki with a few more 2.06 tweaks:

http://wiki.thedarkm...formance_Tweaks

so you can try a few changes from there as well.
Please visit TDM's IndieDB site and help promote the mod:

(Yeah, shameless promotion... but traffic is traffic folks...)

I can't get my TDM updated, not only the updater is endlessly repeating itself, the main updating process does the same! From the log I have the feeling that it can't detect which version I have so it just starts all over again after downloading. It looks like it did update about 70% of the files, but why won't it stop?

Well, time to get over my obsession with mouse lag in the menus and update this motherfucker!

 

At least once all the mirrors have synched and I don't get the issues wesp5 is having.


Oh my God! JC! A bomb!

For mappers having problem with reloadimages and screen going black in 2.06 (http://bugs.thedarkm...iew.php?id=4697): you have to turn off Soft shadows (Multi-core support and Uncapped FPS can be on), and paste this into your .cfg:

 

r_nvidiaOverride "0" // for nvidia GPUs

r_softShadowsQuality "0"
r_useFBO "0"
r_useGLSL "0"

 

That will restore "the 2.05 look" and will allow you to test your materials. Not the ideal solution, but the only one I know that works for now.

I can't get my TDM updated, not only the updater is endlessly repeating itself, the main updating process does the same! From the log I have the feeling that it can't detect which version I have so it just starts all over again after downloading. It looks like it did update about 70% of the files, but why won't it stop?

I got the same problem at a other system, it still downloads tdm_update_2.05_to_2.06.zip.

I solved of it by

  1. removing the read-only permission on the tdm folder, give myself write permissions. (as always and fixed with my tdm installer)
  2. run tdm (so tdm creates some new files)
  3. run updater again to download some new files.
  4. rerun updater to check if everything is ok.

 

start tdm Check if you have already install 2.06 (see version number at the bottom leftside of TDM's main menu.)

If not:

  1. Open windows explorer and navigate to your tdm folder.
  2. rightclick tdm folder > properties > tab general > uncheck readonly > ok > check checkbox all for underneath folder and files
  3. rightclick tdm folder > properties > tab security >  edit > add your account to it and check all allow-permissions checkboxes.
  4. Log out and log in.
  5. run tdm-updater.
  6. close tdm-updater
  7. run tdm to check version number. close tdm
  8. run tdm updater
  9. end

@TDM updater packager:

Please recalculate the hashes.

And create a script that removes the Visual C++ redist installers after it is installed.

Thanks to everyone who participated these last 7 months.
