  1. I'm going dark

    Feel free to reassign all my tickets and delete unfinished work (multi-light shaders, x-ray view, etc) in trunk

    Special thanks to @nbohr1more and @stgatilov for putting up with my countless bugs and making great company

      Duzhenko, whatever it is, I hope everything will go well for you. Thank you for all the hard work so far for the community. Come back anytime you'd want. As far as I'm concerned, the door will be always open and the light always on for you. Best wishes, P.

  2. With my workload finally decreasing and having to stay at home far longer than I planned for this spring, I think I'll try to find more time for TDM as well. For the time being, I want to work on those audio projects.

      I've been safe and stayed safe. :) Enjoying the summer and working on some TDM stuff occassionally. I'll become more livelier here on the forums in the autumn/fall. :)

  3. I am annoying, sorry. :(

      Nah, you're all right. :)

  4. The Wiki is currently uneditable, at least for me. See the attached image. I came back yesterday from a visit, turned on the computer, went to the wiki, and I was logged off. I thought "OK, my login simply ran out, it is not indefinite". So I logged in, as usual. However, since then, I have been unable to edit any article on the wiki. Any. Article, discussion, category, no edits can be saved and I always receive this database error. Is this a cache clearing issue, or is this yet another hiccup on part of the official servers ?

    TDM wiki every edit becomes an error.png

      Please, could someone take a good look at this ?

  5. I bought the mic today, it should arrive tomorrow. I actually forgot about your request, but if I manage to get the mic working with good recording quality, I'll try to record those lines. ?

    1. Petike the Taffer

      Petike the Taffer

      Okay. Tell me when you'll need the recordings and send me the lines once you're satisfied with them. I'll be testing my mic until then and practicing. Want to be sure it doesn't need too much fine tuning.

      Excellent. On a sidenote: Should I choose a particular accent for the captain ? I wanted to give him this pseudo-Scottish accent, but if you don't need one, that's fine. ?

      It has arrived. :) I will test it during the weekend and see what results I get. If you have updated or revised the character's lines, let me know. I might do at least a few test recordings.

  8. To anyone willing to help with a minor but useful voice acting/vocal set-related project: I'd like to upload a 3,5 MB zip to a cloud, but I don't have a dropbox account (and mediafire has become weirdly unreliable for zip downloads). Would anyone be willing to share their storage space for a few weeks ? The zip file contains the player character voice files (grunts, etc.) and I'd like to share the link with VAs I've asked for help with completing the female version of the player character voice files. Just so they could have a point of comparison with the existing voice files, to have a clear idea of what we're aiming for with the female version of that vocal set. Thank you for any help with this, it's a minor thing, but would be incredibly helpful ! Cheers...

      Just found an e-mail about how they've finally gotten it on the road. ? Well, better late than never. ;) We have to count our blessings.

      It still hasn't arrived yet, though I waited the entire day. :( Pity. I'll continue waiting tomorrow. Hopefully it'll get delivered soon.

      Thank you. ? Open your darkmod folder, find the pk4 file "tdm_sound_vocals01". Make a copy of it into some other folder elsewhere. Rewrite the format manually, from .pk4 to .zip.  If that doesn't work, use the converter I provide in the attachment (just put it in the same folder as the copied .pk4 and click it). Once you have that vocals .pk4 copy converted to .zip format, you can upload the zip to your dropbox. Like I said, it's only some 3,5 MB, in both .pk4 and .zip format. Then send me the dropbox link, so I can share it with the VAs. Thanks a ton !

  13. I currently don't have Internet at home and I'm rather busy, but I'll be back soon. Wishing you guys and gals all the best and I hope you're having a nice summer. :-) Wait for me, I won't be long.

      I haven't even begun this year's vacation, haha. Too much unfinished work. :-) But now I'm back and as soon as the site completes its necessary maintenance, I'll be visiting a lot more often once again.

  15. I need a new voice actor for my thief. Is there somebody out there who can point me to someone or could handle the job himself?

  16. Most popular video about Moldova:

      Anderson, personally speaking, I otherwise like your country, but I certainly don't like the neglect it's suffered, or that it's been in political limbo for some 30 years. Here's hoping things will improve in the future.

      Having studied older and more recent Moldovan history, I've always felt the country was dealt a bad hand. And the Soviets and their successors, even if they invested in the economy in the past, are partly to blame for it. If there wasn't the whole Transnistria business, I bet Moldova could have already been in the EU along with Romania, and been better for it.

  18. It's been fun, but I am no longer able to dedicate time to DR. Thanks to everyone for all your help over the past few years and to the team for keeping alive what I call, "the golden age" of stealth play. After much consideration, I am quitting the games industry. This includes all indie projects.

  19. Anyone else interested in voice acting? Till now, I have Andros, New Horizon and Goldchocobo on board.

    1. Petike the Taffer

      Petike the Taffer

      I'd be interested, but I don't have my new mic bought yet. You can also try to contact some of the volunteers listed here: http://wiki.thedarkmod.com/index.php?title=Voice_actors

  20. Still spreading the word about TDM on forums to new peops... Funny to see people say "Awesome, I loved playing Thief back in the day!"

  21. Consider buying a new (used) laptop. It has about the same horsepower as mine, but better screen and battery. (and more expensive as well). Makes sense or it's just consumer rabies?

      I have a second-hand, refurbished laptop and it's working very well. Not my main computer, but it's served well so far.

      Looking forward to it. Hope my proofreading will help.

      Not much, I'm afraid. :-D I keep building vertical structures with stairs, always get leaks and weird behaviour. I have never built a single functioning staircase in TDM, and that's a major bummer I get stuck on, over and over again.
