I am experimenting with TDM versioning and updates, and have problem with TDM 2.05.

 

When I run it, it has very weird graphics: bumpmapping is absent, and lighting is rather weird in general.

Here is the screenshot:

Spoiler

 

I recall that I ran TDM 2.05 during TDM 2.06 beta phase and later, and it worked properly. I am 80% sure that I have correct packages and they did not change.

However, I updated video driver for my GeForce 1050ti, and I suspect that this is the issue.

 

I wanted to ask someone who still has TDM 2.05 and NVIDIA hardware to check if it works well.

Or maybe someone else can help me diagnose the problem.

I need to know whether my current TDM 2.05 installation is buggy or not.

Mine looks okay.

 

I have an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960.

How about rename darkmod.cfg and start with an empty one?

I have 2.05 as well, and it works fine on GTX 1060. But I'm not using some older drivers.

If your installation is buggy, you can try to download TDM in another hard drive disc, off a clean slate and cross out any culprit regarding faulty files.

 

What is your Nvidia driver version?

Thank you everyone for your answers!

I have nuked darkmod.cfg and started from scratch, and it works well now.

 

In fact, I have reinstalled drivers, rebooted machine several times. Moreover, I had two separate 2.05 installations, and both of them failed in same way.

In one of them I started TDM 2.06 executable also, which most likely corrupted cfg file (changed e.g. normalCompression). Although I don't know why the second installation did not work  :o

 

Anyway, that was my fault.

Sorry for bothering  :unsure:

Yeah, best to have a backup folder of TDM for testing when something goes wrong. Maybe even in a separate disc on your memory, if possible - just not to confuse things.
