  1. Hello folks, Is it possible for you to mirror the game as a Google Drive or a torrent download? Downloading from the mirrors has always been hellishly slow, not to mention slower broadband speeds in Turkey.
  2. Hello, didn't want to bump an old thread, but I solved the problem by increasing almost all Nvidia Control Panel settings to highest and it is silky-smooth now. Anyone who experiences this problem on an Nvidia card could try this.
  3. What about Thief: Deadly Shadows-like lockpicking? That would be awesome! I like it better than the classic lockpicking style. A lot more challenging than that, especially for the beginners (I remember having trouble with that when I first played Deadly Shadows, took me some time to figure it out). Feels awesome when you learn how to pick the locks, and it's a bit realistic too. "HOLD THE RIGHT MOUSE BUTTON TILL IT'S UNLOCKED" - The only thing that I don't like about the first two Thief games. I know that TDM's lockpicking is a bit different than the original one - you need to know when to stop holding the right mouse button. Still, I don't really find it interesting. Of course, it could be offered as an optional feature. Anyway, I don't think this will ever happen though (You may say I'm a dreamer. But I'm not the only one... ), all the fan missions are likely to require a rework for locks...
  4. Done, but no difference. I think I'll stick with Intel HD Graphics for now. It performs better than Nvidia (which is strange) and its performance is better than I remembered (maybe because of the updated drivers). Anyway, thanks for all your efforts.
  5. Yeah, I know about John Carmack but I'm not really into technical details. Your post and nbohr1more's post above are too technical for me, well, at least, to some extent. But thanks for clarifying. Guess my problem is related to single core stuff. Wish the engine supported multithreading. Is it possible for the developers to add this feature to TDM's custom id Tech 4 engine? Well, there is a new update for BIOS but I cannot risk it, because this laptop is not mine, it belongs to my sister. If anything happens she'll simply kill me. I will try the killmonster command as soon as possible.
  6. Done, but didn't help a lot. Still between 15-22 FPS. Here is the Nvidia report of my graphics card: http://pastebin.com/YwUtG2da
  7. Okay, I did a cleanup of Training Mission and it didn't help. Removed the file from fms folder just to install its newest version, and guess what? You can't download it in-game. I don't know where to find the latest version either. Guess I'll skip Training Mission. Not that I'm not familiar with Thief series, but I just liked that map. Anyway, I hope the low FPS issue is not existent in other maps too. Tears of St. Lucia is fine in terms of FPS. Ambient rendering and interaction shader are now set to lowest. Turned V-Sync off in-game and forced V-Sync via Nvidia control panel. No difference. The only thing that bothers me is that with this computer I could play lots of new titles with no problems at all, but I experience framerate issues with TDM. I suppose id Tech 4 is not well optimised?
  8. Good idea, I'll try when I get back home. Thank you! Hmm, turning V-Sync off definitely breaks immersion, because tearings occur a lot. V-Sync didn't cause any problems in Tears of St. Lucia. Got ~30 FPS with the current settings that I posted above. I will try the other options though. Thank you!
  9. Yes, V-Sync is on. Tried that, but didn't help a lot for Training Mission. Tears of St. Lucia performs better though (with and without power management mode setting, around 30 FPS). Guess the problem is related to Training Mission?
  10. Darkmod.cfg is not a big deal, because I reverted it back to the original state (except some changes made in-game, such as resolution, V-Sync). Still, here it is: http://pastebin.com/csNuqXpp Edit: I tried Training Mission only. But as far as I remember the problem was persistent in other missions as well. How do I export Nvidia settings to a text file? I couldn't find it.
  11. Hello there, I did a clean install of TDM 2.03 via TDM Updater, and when I change my resolution to 1366x768, the game becomes slower, especially when I go outdoors (between 10-15 FPS). But the most interesting thing about this issue is this happens when I use my Nvidia graphics card. Onboard Intel HD Graphics perfoms better but not that much. I mean, still not smooth enough. Also tried changing some stuff in Darkmod.cfg but to no avail. I was able to play Doom 3: BFG Edition smoothly but I haven't tried the vanilla Doom 3. I don't understand why this happens. My specs: Intel Core i5 4210U 1.7 Ghz (2.7 Ghz with Turbo technology) and Intel HD Graphics 4400 integrated graphics Nvidia GeForce GT840M (latest driver is installed, and I could play some recent AAA games without lowering the graphics settings) 8 GB of DDR3 RAM I also use Windows 10 but I don't think that is the issue. The problem was existent on Windows 8.1 too. Thanks in advance. Edit: See the entry #386991 for a possible solution!
