  1. The quick answer is no. TDM runs Doom3 .map files and Thief2 runs .mis files. It's imaginable somebody could make a script that converts .mis files to .map files, but it's unlikely because it might be considered violating IP, and nobody wanted TDM to be threatened with a cease & desist letter that had shut down fan remakes in the past. All that said, there was a guy that made a few T2 maps in TDM, at least the shells of them, I believe by hand. He never released it, but he released some videos of them. Go to http://www.shadowdarkkeep.com/videos.htm and find "runspeedwide", t

  2. Those last 3 missions are looking awesome. Amadeus, isn't that from one of the abandoned missions? I recognise that treehouse part. This is what I've been working today, finishing up one of the shops.

  4. Well done Joebarnin for an absolute top class Thief mission! I'm stuck though I am at a standstill with progress as I seem to keep going in circles now. I've found the song verses in the abandoned house and then figured out the code from it but I have no idea where to use it. I'm losing my mind cycling through all the houses and trying windows etc. I'll take a break for now I think.. just wanted to say that so far the quality of your mission has left me very impressed! Anyhows, thank you for the time and superb effort you put in for this! *Edit* Found where to use the com

  5. Not really But now if a map entity uses rotation hack, then the game embeds this "rotation" into the model automatically during map load, i.e. creates a scaled model. So yes, the game engine has said goodbye to it completely. As for maps and mappers... don't know.

  6. When put in perspective though, I'd rather deal with first world problems than third world problems. Of course I'd rather deal with no problems at all, but that ain't gonna happen until I'm dead. Or the king of the world. Working on that goal.

  7. Legally, a script converting maps from other games to TDM wouldn't be a problem. But you would not be permitted to release the generated derivative works to the public without explicit permission by the party currently owning the rights on the original maps. The legally correct way to make such a script useful to the TDM player base would be to add a feature to TDM or provide a standalone executable, wich lets the user select the original map from their legally aquired local T1/T2/TDS installation and generates/installs a playable TDM map from that. The generated map may not be distr

  8. I had no better luck with 3.1.4 from github than with 3.1.4 installed by Mageia. I then tried 3.0.5 from github after having uninstalled all wxgtk devel packages provided by Mageia. This resulted in DR not finding 'libwx_gtk2u_gl-3.0.so.0'. This was weird because the 'libwx_gtk2u' libraries in my system are from version 2.8, not 3.0, so even if they are installed they are named wrong in this case. Re-installing the Mageia devel packages for wxgtk 3.0 allowed DR to build and run again, but the problem with the textures refreshing still persists.

  9. @Geep You can set that as a (hidden) objective. You can choose Readable is opened, Readable is closed Or certain page of a readable is reached.

  10. I have tried two builds of 2.9.0. The current build and the previous build. Both showed the same behavior, but the previous build had the issue with the segfault. I could have sworn that I had previously built 2.8.0 using wxgtk 3.1.x and all worked well, while I also had these issues with 2.8.0 when built with wxgtk 3.0.x ... at least I believe that was the case. My latest attempt to build 2.8.0 with wxgtk 3.1.x failed. DR 2.9.0 has so far failed to build with wxgtk 3.1.4

  11. Textures can now be selected in the texture browser and changed on brushes and patches without causing a segfault. However, now I can see that the texture browser does not refresh it's view unless I re-size the frame around it. Scrolling the texture window only shows the scrollbar moving and the texture list stays put until I re-size the frame. I also cannot preview textures in the Media browser. I can select them, but the texture preview does not show until the frame around the media browser is re-sized.

  12. Stolen Heart Today it's a pleasure to announce "Away 0: Stolen Heart" as the formal name of the WIP underway this year and destined for beta by next Spring. This is a prequel to "Away 1: Air Pocket", and builds on the foundation of "Setting the Scene". Those of you around a decade ago may remember these early screenshots of "Setting the Scene" by _Atti_ (with Melan): You'll get to experience these vistas, slightly tweaked, in "Stolen Heart". And screenshots of fresh content will start to be posted later this month.

  13. Hello everyone, Bikerdude's made significant updates to this mission and it's now fully playable in 2.08. Available in the in-game downloader or Download here (v3.1)! We'll update the OP to reflect this. Thanks! “I usually welcome the shadows, a place of refuge for a master thief like me. However, there are dark places that even I fear. That place being the plague ward at the edge of town. Rumour has it that it was cursed by a pagan witch and its inhabitants died from an incurable plague..." Build Time: Update Build Time: Original version - 3-4 weeks.

  15. double post, what is the name for the "arbitrary transformation" widget (Modify > Rotate and scale...) in the shortcut list? I had it assigned to "A" but now the aforementioned crashes have also deemed it necessary to reset my keybinds as well so "A" is back to CameraMoveUp or however that goes. I would check the non-beta version but I don't want to destroy my camera mouselook move shortcut keys again...

  16. checking for GL/glew.h... yes checking for main in -lGLEW... no configure: error: GLEW not found I have built DR many times in the past, and always make sure the dependencies are installed, etc. I have never had an issue w/ GLEW dependencies before.

  17. Indefinite app hang seemingly out of nowhere. I was in the process of making a foglight and probably pressed the light inspector button, L, while still focused on the entity pane rather than the orthoview. Or at least that's what I think was my last action. Here's the dumpfile.

  19. Thank you! This is still an early stage though, there are no windows, or roof, I have to rework some of the models like the wireless generator, candles, wall panels will need a clip/collision model, because moving nearby them is wonky, etc. The list grows But I wanted to expand a bit on why I tried to make something like that. During my first months with TDM, I was getting to know the editor and the engine, and testing their capabilities. My knowledge about engines, editors, and making content is related to Unreal engines, but most techniques are rather versatile and engine-agnostic. While

  20. So ummm... you know how I posted a few days ago how COVID was basically a non-entity in my state and we had no community transmission for about 100 days? Well, we went from 0 -> 3 -> 18 cases in the span of two days. That's not much and fortunately we're enacting restrictions and can hopefully stomp on it quickly (with lessons learnt from Melbourne/Victoria), but still, unfortunate. And it's all because I opened my big mouth! Not literally mind you, but... you know what I mean.
