  1. I came across that earlier but none of those options work in linux unfortunately.
  2. Thanks Ctrl+Alt+~ allows me to release the mouse. Is there a way to Tab out of fullscreen mode back to the desktop?
  3. I googled but came up short. When running in windowed mode how how does one switch out of the game to the desktop or release the mouse to continue working in the desktop? OS: Linux, XFCE DE
  4. If one enables "Allow Flipping" and enable Triple Buffering in the xorg.conf the game is also smooth ( with vsync on) Trying to figure out how to see the current status of threaded optimisation, will carry on looking. It's probably off by default as it looks like it's still not ready for prime time.
  5. Thanks, I'll look at those tomorrow, off to sleep now. What I did was disable "Allow Flipping" in nvidia control centre, left Sync to VBlank on, left powermiser on max. Set everything in TDM to max but left post processing disabled, vsync enabled and now the game sticks to 58/59FPS (fps counter flashes between those to values), game is smooth and no jerkiness, so looking good! The Allow Flipping stuffs things up if I enable it again dropping the fps and jerkiness is back. So people might wanna keep this in mind. From my understanding this feature swaps between buffers. So this will stay disabled for now. I'll look at those other links tomorrow and see how it compares to my config. Thanks!
  6. I can find any reference to such an option anywhere. Same goes for triple buffering. Only option I can find is sync to vblank.
  7. Ok running this on a fresh manjaro 64-bit install, GPU=GTX960, CPU=i5-4690, RAM=8GB, nVidia Drivers=346.35-1, 1920x1080 native res, running game in fullscreen with everything set on minimum settings. Getting 50-60fps but feels very jerky. I set the nividia control panel powemiser for maximum performance but I doubt my gpu is even working hard as the fans don't even switch on. I looked at the wiki for performance tweaks and I can't see anything wrong. I installed following this guide http://www.thedarkmod.com/download-the-mod/ Surely I should have smooth gfx & high fps? I've been playing tears of st lucia and I got so engrossed in the game I had not realised an hour had passed before a guard offed me Please let me know whatever info I can supply that would be of help to you.
  8. http://www.thedarkmod.com/download-the-mod/work fine. Is there a way to mark this thread as solved?
  9. No idea. I'll have a closer look tomorrow but his is the contents of the pkgbuild, https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/da/darkmod/PKGBUILD For now I came across http://www.thedarkmod.com/download-the-mod/and following Install TDM on LInux section. Thanks for the welcome but I've been here before, now with much better gpu I'm ready to play this game. Spoke to one of the team members before that's from South Africa and he was very helpful. Cheers
  10. Hi, Got a new PC yesterday with a decent gpu (i5-4690+gtx960) so I'm keen to install & play TDM. I've tried the Arch AUR version but get the following output, Seems out of date. Any suggestions on how to install this on Manjaro (just like Arch) 64-bit?
  11. CPU: Intel C2Q 6600, 2.4GHz OS: Linux, 3.13.5-1-MANJARO x86_64 Video Card: nVidia GT610 1GB Driver version: 331.49 Resolution: 1920x1080 RAM: 2GB Turned off all antialiasing etc stuff, followed the tweak guide in the wiki. Seems to run fine, hard to read the fps counter as it changes so rapidly but seems to be 40-50 fps on average. Turning around there seems to be a bit of jerkiness but I get this even at lower resolutions. I should probably check and see if I can fix my 9600GT no-signal issue...
  12. I ended up using the tab key, close enough to `
  13. I have a issue related to the console. When I press ' it brings up the console as does any key combo with `. According to the wiki ' should be to put away weapons but this is unmapped in the game (using linux). Is there a preferred key to put away weapons I need to map?
  14. In al honesty I saw that and did not pay much attention too it I will look at the training mission again thanks.
  15. Thank you, I just want to get this right so I have the proper experience. I'm an ex Thief 1-3 player and I absolutely loved the games.
