  1. Errors during Downloading multiple missions have to be researched. But it is known to the community that we have some slow filemirrors for the game and its missions.
  2. Nice job. Here are my mentions, during the first time i run this build: === This in comparison with my unofficial tdm installer (at the tdm download page) Installer window very large in screensize. Doesnt use the standard winforms buttons, interface, etc. (can scare people. i expected an installer like DR, using the winforms interface) But if this a multiplatform, then i Prefer an automatically gui switcher with winforms when the use uses windows) Canot find any installation selection list for components (shortcuts, uninstaller, docs, etc) Installer selects automatically the location where the installer is placed. (so you want to install the game in your downloads folder??) When changing another location, the next-button grays out. Cant create folders in standard application locations (like program files > permission denied.) i love the version selector! Dont like The total progress bar (and his yellow progress colour) Howabout dividing in two progressbars (total and file), Download Status-line field would be nice. (people can then copy error lines to forum Dont see the tdm binaries in the folder, only the updater. * working on list * About linux installer: how about promoting the existing repo's & packagemanagers? Is there sourcecode available? == Please look at other installers out there and my unofficial tdm installer (at the tdm download page) as an example. (and sourcecode of the nsis installer script at my github repo)
  3. full access permissions. see the instructions: https://wiki.thedarkmod.com/index.php?title=Installer_and_Manual_Installation#Windows
  4. welcome. we dont know what type of missions you like. So i suggest to play them all.
  5. because i follow windows standards, my advice to set the write permissions your tdm folder. (or do this automatically by using freyks installer) or move the tdm folder to somewhere outside the program files folder. (for example to the "documents" folder) for instructions, see our wiki: https://wiki.thedarkmod.com/index.php?title=Installer_and_Manual_Installation#Windows but i really think that the topicstarter experienced a bad mission download from an mission mirror. have to test this a bit more.
  6. Got almost the same problem too (with 2.08). But the game doesnt crash. I downloaded snowed in and arena, the download of snowed in fails (there is no data) and arena succeeds (with data). And with no write permissions to the fm folder, the downloader tries to download the mission 2 times and gives you the failed-message.
  7. How about using that mirror as an official tdm mirror?
  8. How about setting this screen resolution in darkmod.cfg? I dont have a big screen to test it.
  9. Yes, or on a Bookback, bookcover, bannercloth, etc. Ask a texture creator and a mapper.
  10. That's True. But as banners for magazine in the game, like they did in hl-mod they hunger. (we can easily do this) For example, see this video at at 00:12, some pcgamemagazines at 02:22, pcgame title on wagon etc.
  11. For downloading missions, i reccomend arcatera to download the missions outside TDM game, using another download mirror. You can find multiple download locations at info page of a mission, at the mission list on our website. (for arcatera problem: use a external download manager. I like to use FDM)
  12. Please post this article in topic "tdm in the news". There are lots of things we can do for PCGamer. Like posting some comments, posting tips at the article. or what other game-creators do for PCGamer: creating a standalone version of our game, including a PCGamer version of one of the TDM missions (by adding some PCGamer banners to the mission).
  13. Dont use my installer to speed up TDM downloads using the updater, because it doesnt download the game-files. The TDM installer just creates the gamefolder, uninstaller, shortcuts, set permissions and then download the necessary files to start the the TDM updater to download the game-files. My answer to Arcatera problem is to download the game-files from other mirrors. By selecting another download mirror that the updater uses, by changing code lines in file tdm_mirrors.txt. (by commenting out some lines, by putting "#" before the lines) (mirror.helium.in-berlin.de is to me the fastest mirror) Or by downloading manually TDM from one of the mirrors of Moddb. (download 2.07 standalone and 2.08 update package)
  14. And that why I ended up creating the guis manually, without this tool in TDM. In D3 and prey it works great. So in my darkmission-days, i created the guis that i want (as a concept), and loaded it in to TDM to retextured and make it interactive manually.
  15. I recommend to just to try/test it out. Because it is tedious and difficult enough. (But it cool to see your own designs in TDM) Try to create a simple menu, then create a more advanced menu with the tdm scripts. Tip: get a topic going in subforum art assets and hit me up.
