  1. Thought I'd try this again :) 

    It's been awhile, so I'm very rusty. Now with a better pc I should be able to tackle the water problem I had 10 years ago. Komag's tutorial is still here somewhere? Has it been updated since 2011? I remember having issues with the icons to the left, not looking like they were supposed to, but now I see I get a description too.

    I can't remember how to get the 3 box view. Got the camera to the left & the big grid view, but I remember I could see 3 grid views & the camera. This is gonna take awhile to figure all this out again :) 

  2. Found the note down with the paintings when I thought I was done with the mission. Now I need to find 4 black paintings. Luckily I have 1, 2, & 4. Number 3 is supposed to be in the valuables room on the 3rd floor. I'm guessing it's behind the green metal door on the 3rd floor?? Can someone give me a downright spoiler on where it is?

    ...soo close...

    There's a "screenshots" folder in your TDM folder.

    After taking a screenshot, you can check the console. You should see a line like:

    Wrote screenshots/mission_name (2023-01-06 11-03-44) (2002.23 1061.83 414.88).jpg                          


    Guess What? I found the screenshots folder & it works!! :) 

    & look at That, they're actually labeled as the FM I was playing, instead of dump-something... Nice!!

  4. Yeah I see notta. Anyways, I do believe I've installed beta 2.11 correctly, now I just need your beta FM to see if it ALL works correctly. The PC in Sweden failed when I tried this a year ago with beta 2.10. This time all of this gets its' own drive (slow) - Fresh Install, instead. It's not on the SSD, but hey 1TB HDD should be fast enough anyway. It's the only thing there.

  5. Honestly, I don't know. I have taken screenshots with Written in Stone, but I don't know where they are. How do the images save, I mean, what are the files called? "dump-something" if I remember correctly. The game always wants to install to the game folder on C drive, so I'm wondering if they're there instead. D drive is what holds my games & other important stuff if Windows fails. 

    I have no anti-virus stuff on any of my pc's. Hate the pop-up messages from Norton in the middle of the game & no way of turning it off without having to turn the whole thing off. They don't even have reset buttons anymore I noticed lol. I know what goes in & out hehe I check my email on my iphone first, so I don't get infected by mistake.

    So tell me, what is the original output "address" for the dump-pictures?

  6. Wow :( I thought there would be at least 3. That's sad...

    Anyways, with all this arctic air heading here for Christmas maybe I can get my own FM going. The one I've wanted to build for decades (meant for T2) is quite elaborate, but maybe I should just start with one that works (with flowing water, that's where it crashed for me, in TDM lol) 

    With the new desktop it shouldn't be many issues anymore. Let me ask you this. Dark Radiant, what's the latest version these days? Do I need any more drivers or other stuff like graphics & such. I still got PhotoShop 6, so it's still cool to do new stuff too for wallpaper, paintings. Problem is, my old hdd. I don't want to open the new pc to install my old hdd as a slave just yet. There's other ways, these days. No CD/DVD on this one either. Using my old laptops external thing from Samsung to install older stuff like T2 & T3, but there seems to be an issue with Win 11. I'll figure it out eventually.

    Were you doing horror themed too?

    Not into those really. Mansion/Castle maps is the original of my idea. It's actually the lay out of Bamburger Castle in the UK.

    So, if there is no contest, yet, how far to plan for a new one?


  7. If it was only that simple ;) So, I'm running around in the library with the floating books. What am I looking for in there? Been up the tower, sitting on a desk on the first floor of the library watching the dead go by me. Are they killable? I can see them with the xray glasses too, funny...

    So, the hint is in the journal you find in the mages tower, and you need to use the xray specs to get there. If you need a further hint: 

      Hide contents

    the far corner of the sewers, but again, you need to make sure those glasses are equipped and on



    yeah I got those. That was stupid on my behalf... They were like right there... dummy

    You got the LOCKED i7.......the non overclockable i7. Yeah it's a good CPU regardless, but I got my 12700k to 5.1Ghz all core WITH a negative voltage offset, on air cooling.


    I'm actually super curious about the difference, can you install Cinebench R23 and run multicore benchmark?
    I'm currently getting 25033 pts with this overclock.

    I've never over-clocked any of my pc's. I make sure I buy them I can run T2 & TDM. I'll install them both at the store just incase ;) However this pc came with an nvidia sub-menu to actually over-clock for gaming, but I don't know how that works & I don't care. As long as it works :)

    That may not be the best deal coming up with Black Friday almost here, but that thing is gonna run like a champ on steroids. A good value is only worth money minus convenience, hence the formula:

    • GV=M-C

    therefore Good Value (GV) can further be broken down into:

    • GV=(M-C) / (Eom+P)-(A+R)

    where Good Value is equal to (Money minus Convenience), divided by (Ease of mind plus Peace) less (Anger plus Rage).

    Only YOU can determine what your true GV is.


    Yeah, but I couldn't wait any longer. I just played and finished Iris & The Black Mage. Working on Lucy now.

    Still got Written In Stone to do too. None of these would work with an asus with windows 7. Now I can take all these old pc's and laptops and recycle them. The batteries suck and the desktops/towers are all outdated. I used to build my own for just gaming, but now tech is so far forward that even a Lenovo can do it :) 

    & then there's the idea of building my own TDM FM one day, with 12 cores of processing power maybe now I can get the water in the moat to work. That's when I stopped last. The water kept crashing the old pc's :( Now I just have to relearn Dark Radiant again...

    When is the Christmas contest due? Maybe I can make a little snowy one... I love the snow in T2 & TDM :) & just incase, the water will be frozen lol ;)
