  1. Really? I feel that would be pretty stupid, honestly... The fps cap is there so your GPU doesn't run amok in the menu and other lightweight scenes, or to keep a more stable average FPS. There is absolutely no use case to select every value between 30 and 300, so a slider just isn't the right tool, imho. There are only a few select values that actually make sense.

  2. How about we just do this instead:

  3. As a sanity check in preparation for the 2.09 release article, I tested performance for the original "Return to the City" map. I probably should have been more exhaustive but I wanted to get through it today. Starting with TDM 1.02: 24FPS 1080P 4xAA 8xAF Bloom TDM 1.03: 21FPS 1080P 4xAA 8xAF "HDR-Lite" TDM 1.07: 23FPS (same settings as 1.03) TDM 1.08: 25FPS (same settings as 1.03) TDM 2.0: 27FPS (same settings as 1.03) TDM 2.03: 26FPS (same settings as 1.03) TDM 2.05: 28FPS (1.03 settings, uncapped FPS) TDM 2.06: 32FPS (1.03 settings, multi-core, un

  4. Something that didn't make it into beta209-03 (because of some technical problems with SVN) is the new moving version of Epifire's steam engine ("animated" in DR using func_pendulums etc.). Mappers would be welcome to try it out ingame as part of this beta. Simply download this supplemental .pk4 and place it in your TDM base directory, then place the prefab in your FM. The requirement is that you're on beta209-03. Known issues: console warnings about skin duplications: this is because this .pk4 overwrites some base skins with modified versions console warning

  6. But the selected value doesn't (can't?) reflect the actual value as stgatilov says, so a slider is a more adaptive solution. If I want adaptive sync on a 75 Hz monitor I must limit the frametime to 1/74 *actual* seconds, not a "75" nominal value.

  7. Solved! I didn't need to copy/paste, your suggestion was enough. I arranged a moveable plank on the floor that is hit by the opening door. The other end of the plank is against an immovable knob of worldspawn... required! Regarding the earlier attempts, it remains surprising to me that setting "notPushable 1" on a moveable doesn't make it act like worldspawn to the physics engine.

  8. Ok, I'll leave it as is. To be clear, I set the steps to be "5" in the slider in the gui file, but it's ignoring that.

  10. The only thing I think we should do is set the max to 300. Physics gets out-of-hand above that: https://bugs.thedarkmod.com/view.php?id=5464

  11. I know that the wooden plank moveable reliably blocks the door leading out of the player's starting location in Perilous Refuge until he carries it away, you could try to copy-paste that setup into your map and then incrementally transform it to what you need.

  12. I have to report that the new installer can't update itself and gives the error it can't find "D:\The". Which makes me assume it can't handle spaces in the path as mine is "The Dark Mod". I renamed the temporary files and will continue from there...

  13. beta209-03 is available. Changelog is provided in its usual place. Use tdm_installer to get the new version, and don't forget to check "Get custom version". In a very rare case if you managed to download beta209-03 yesterday, please run tdm_installer and update to beta209-03 once again. It was a bit different yesterday Note that the new beta contains a lot of new assets and asset fixes. It would be great if mappers check them out
