Hello again. I've been a member here for some time but I haven't played TDM for a couple or three years now. There was a point when my newly updated Linux machine simply said no to TDM and I could find nothing which helped. Anyway, my system has become rather complex - I had three Linux machines (two of them laptops) all connected to the net until, a few days ago, my main machine decided it wasn't going to cooperate any longer - it still worked but the onboard (wouldn't you know it)  net comms bits had gone to the junkyard in the sky. So, I bought a bargain machine from Amazon, and swapped the hard disks from that machine and the old machine and Bingo! I'm back in business, BUT, that new machine came with Windows 10, and I'm not about to go anywhere near the net with that. So I have a stand-alone Windows machine which is begging to have a go with TDM - if I can get TDM onto it.

So - at last to the point of this. I know I can download the Windows version of TDM on my net-connected Linux machine and then simply transfer it to the new Windows machine. But what about missions? Can I do the same thing with them (ie download to my Linux machine and then transfer them to my Windows machine? I seem to remember an element of automatic installation for missions, which would render it impossible (or, at least, very difficult which, for me, amounts to the same thing).

I really enjoyed TDM when I could get it to work, and I'd love to really enjoy it again. So - help, pretty please.

If you don't want to connect your Windows-based rig to Internet, you can always grab pk4. packages here: http://www.thedarkmod.com/missions/

That's precisely what I need, Judith. Thanks a whole lot. Sleepless nights lie before me  :D

The lesson for me today - read the small print.
