  1. Sorry for my absence. I am recovering from a recent Covid infection. Dr told me I can return to work ( wfh ) Sunday. Not sure about that timetable…

      @nbohr1more, I'm glad to hear that you're well on the road to recovery and not suffering the worst of the long-term effects. Here's hoping each day continues to be better.

  2. I just figured out how to make subtitles work in TDM (srt) for ingame cutscenes and how to automatically generate the srt file in Kdenlive's speech recognition (I just had to edit it a bit).

    Kdenlive is a free and open source multiplatform pretty advanced video editor.

    Test case is the first builder gost scene in Requiem saying:

    1
    00:00:00,180 --> 00:00:02,140
    the builder be with you this night
    
    2
    00:00:02,600 --> 00:00:04,840
    there will be secrets all around you
    
    3
    00:00:05,040 --> 00:00:06,439
    so have a keen eye

    The following page gives you the basic info:

    https://wiki.thedarkmod.com/index.php?title=Subtitles

    These 2 tutorials give you the info for creating the srt files:

    If you run into the problem the Kdenlive cannot find your Python PATH, then here is a solution:

    Edit: During the installation of Python, in the installer, if you select more options, you can specify to set the PATH. I tried this on another Windows computer and this fixed the issue. Much easier solution.

     

    This is all the code for the testcase:

    fm_root.subs file in subtitles folder in fm's root:

    // Requiem subtitles
    
    subtitles fm_root {
        verbosity story
        srt "sound/voices/Hanno1.ogg" "subtitles/hanno1.srt"
    }

    hanno.srt file in same folder:

    1

    Maybe I will create a seperate (text,images based) tutorial on the wiki.

      OK. I was thinking that it's better for the code to correctly know it can't display a subtitle at the moment because of it's out of slots, rather than think the fourth slot is showing when its not. Because in the first case, maybe it can eventually/belatedly show the subtitle if/when a real slot becomes free. Unless the code's not meant to be that sophisticated.

      Is there some special .gui (now or planned) that uses 4 slots?

      @stgatilov, I can tweak the wiki page further based on your responses.

      I've tried "On" and have seen a guard bark with some subtitling in Away 0. In my newly-added intro to the stgatilov's Subtitles wiki page, I mention that a dozen barks for the Cynic voice are available so far to existing games.

      @nbohr1more, @stgatilov, I've noted the following in the bugtracker but let me call this to your attention here: the standard overlay .gui for subtitles offers 3 non-overlapping fields in the lower screen for subtitles, but my copy of 2.11dev source code (not the latest) seems to provide 4. I think these numbers should agree. In my update to the Subtitle wiki article, I revised the number from 4 to 3.

      Do make this into a separate forum thread or better yet a wiki post.

  5. Please, can we finally group the missions by year in the game menu?

    1. Geep

      Geep

      I like the idea of having a way to choose the sort order. Wouldn't mind sort-by-author too.

      As to the data, this looks like one of these cases where you could spend a week programming it for auto updates, or a couple of hours of manual entry. Probably only a dozen data points change per year thereafter.

  6. I'm beginning to understand why people who aren't into social clubbing "don't last long" on this project, and why it's so full of holes. When moderators are siding with bullies, by closing down threads that they derail, then I start to wonder if I should support the platform to begin with.

    I'm sure that the core development is solid, but when you're constantly tone policed and bullied, and moderators are playing into it too, then the project will just drive away talent, and replace it with socialites instead. ...and without talent, you only end up with a small skeleton crew trying to do everything themselves.

    ...so Dragofer and Airship Ballet, and all you other socialites, you win. From now on I'll just keep to myself. You'll never be able to do my work, but at least you'll be happy together, and that's what matters to you.

     

    Update

    Actually, I have to revise my statement:
    I actually messaged greebo - the top dog, I gather - about nbohr1more's outburst of insanity below, and since I haven't even heard back from him, I just have to assume that there's not a single core programmer here, who's not backing nbohr's threats. ...and that's bad.

    ...so if you're a newbie reading this, or an honest soul like ZergRush, then just slowly back out of these forums, run, and don't look back. This is nothing more than a cult posing as a game development project, using Thief and IDTech4 to sucker hopefuls in, to do work for them, while trying to cajole them into something going on behind the scenes, which apparently - according to nbohr - is something that should be hidden from the state. These people aren't programmers - they don't even understand things like how to fix the simplest bugs. All they have, is an engine, and an IP, and some sort of fascist social cult. There was some other project I saw being made in the Unreal Engine. Try joining that project. ...or start a project of your own. Anything but this asylum.

    Hopefully that was "divisive" enough for a final post, because at this point I really want people to leave this place. This project is, on a management level, just awful garbage, run by garbage people, apparently from the top down, and I'm just glad that they have a garbage place to stay, together, and hopefully forever.

      Nort seemed like someone more troubled than average. Perhaps he will find whatever he's looking for elsewhere.
