  2. Thanks for doing the digging. Libxml2 is so widely used, that it's hard to imagine nobody else has this kind of trouble, so I'm still thinking it must be in the way we use it. Also, why just in Linux, it all doesn't make much sense. I agree it's not worth doing more investigations when an easier alternative is at hand. Yes, I'd add them to the libs, and I'm probably going to set the PUGIXML_HEADER_ONLY flag, at least in Windows.
  3. I took the liberty to change the title of the existing issue and link it to this topic here. https://bugs.thedarkmod.com/view.php?id=6472
  4. Oh boy. Thanks for investigating this, reading the issue description I suspected that the XPath queries might be failing, but I thought it was rather due to the libxml2 version used in newer Ubuntus. I recall now that the automated Ubuntu build on Github is not running the unit tests (couldn't get it to run and gave up at some point) - so I missed that this is breaking stuff. I searched around for existing code to find out what to pass for that encoding parameter in xmlReadFile, but I couldn't find anything useful, everybody seems to pass NULL as argument, which I ended up doing too. I'm all for that, I was that close of doing it when I upgraded libxml2 for Windows. As long as it's supporting XPath and XML Tree manipulations, I'd go for the most light-weight one, maybe even header-only. Our libxml2 usage is confined to xmlutil, so it should be possible to switch. edit: I'd vote for pugixml, it seems to be still alive and has XPath support. It's what I've been using in the TDM game code too. But still, if it's the tree manipulations that break the queries, we can either try to find out what we are doing wrong here, or move away from pushing the .game data into the registry trees - it might not be necessary after all, since most (if not all) code is relying on the GameManager interface to get do the queries. For the moment being, I can revert the change to xmlReadFile, so that my repo is functional again. Are you still investigating this? You seem to have gotten quite far already.
  5. You can create shortcuts to DR, passing an fs_game=your_fm parameters to DarkRadiant.exe, e.g. DarkRadiant.exe fs_game=fms/yourmission It will override the setting saved to the user.xml file in your settings folder. Works with fs_game_base as well.
  6. Since a few versions the settings are saved by minor version - so DR 3.7 is storing its settings in a "3.7" subfolder, and DR 3.8.0 is saving them in "3.8". (DR 3.7.1 and 3.7.2 would use the same "3.7" folder.) Settings are carried forward the first time you start a newer version. So, when DR 3.9 first starts up, it will use the settings of the highest previous version available, then store its settings in the "3.9" subfolder to not overwrite anything from previous versions. (This is similar to what's Blender is doing, at least I think it is.) What's correct though is that the "portable" version is not differing from the installed one in terms of where it stores it settings. They both behave the same. One could maybe vote for having the portable version to store its settings right next to the executable. But to support this, we'd need a configurable code path or maybe even a separate compilation for the portable edition.
  7. Don't see much in the dump, I'm afraid. I can see it's been running into a critical failure, but that's it. Can you have a look at your darkradiant.log file, or maybe send it to me? Maybe it tells me something. (You already tried to remove your settings XML files from C:\Users\greebo\AppData\Roaming\DarkRadiant\3.8, I take it? You can back them up if you need them around. Just move the whole contents of the C:\Users\greebo\AppData\Roaming\DarkRadiant\ folder to somewhere else and start DR. In case you didn't try that already.)
  8. The crash can be caused by anything. Do you have a crash dump? Otherwise it's nearly impossible to say what went wrong.
  9. I've pulled in all the recent commits from Orb's branch and adjusted the VC++ solution to compile.
  10. No, I don't have any idea what the cause could be. Even if I had time to work on DR right now, I wouldn't be able to work on this particular problem, since I don't have a matching native Manjaro installation around.
  11. Yes, sorry, didn't look into that yet. I can't make any promises at this point.
  12. I won't have much time for DarkRadiant in the near future, so don't expect to see much from me in the next few weeks or even months. I thought it might be worth releasing all the fixes we currently have in the repo, so there goes version 3.8.0!
  13. DarkRadiant 3.8.0 is ready for download. What's new: Feature: Support new frob-related material keywords Improvement: Mission selection list in Game setup is not alphabetically sorted Improvement: Better distinction between inherited and regular spawnargs Improvement: Silence sound shader button Improvement: Add Reload Definitions button to Model Chooser Fixed: Model Selector widgets are cut off and flicker constantly on Linux Fixed: DarkRadiant will not start without Dark Mod plugins Fixed: GenericEntityNode not calculating the direction correctly with "editor_rotatable" Fixed: RenderableArrow not drawing the tip correctly for arbitrary rotations Fixed: Light Inspector crashes on Linux Fixed: Models glitch out when filtering then showing them Fixed: Skin Editor: models not centered well in preview Fixed: "Copy Resource Path" includes top level folders Fixed: Skin Editor: internal test skins are shown if Material Editor was open previously Fixed: Changing Game/Project doesn't update loaded assets correctly Fixed: Model Chooser: initially hidden materials aren't revealed when enabling them Fixed: Choosing AI entity class 'atdm:townsfolk_commoner_update' causes crash Fixed: Sporadic assertion failure on shutdown due to LocalBitmapArtProvider destruction Fixed: Prefab Selector spams infinite error dialogs on Linux Windows and Mac Downloads are available on Github: https://github.com/codereader/DarkRadiant/releases/tag/3.8.0 and of course linked from the website https://www.darkradiant.net Thanks to all the awesome people who keep using DarkRadiant to create Fan Missions - they are the main reason for me to keep going.

  14. No, not really, have only seen him on the forums many years ago. He deserves a lot of credit for providing the SVN infrastructure in the beginnings of the project, it's been only later when we transferred this to a hosted server. Memory is blurry, but I think my time working on TDM and his don't overlap that much - I had been getting more active, and he pulled back a bit. He bootstrapped quite a few important systems, IIRC he's been working on light gem and the first Stim/Response and Inventory implementations. From what I recall, he gave the project an organisational backbone in the technical department which is crucial to keep things together. Folks like Spring and NH who have joined long before me could give more insights, I guess. (Looking at my join date makes me feel old either way. From TDM's current view point, the year 2006 seems like right at the beginning, but actually the mod had already been existing for two years by that time I joined. With the first release in 2009, 2006 is rather in the middle. Heck, I haven't touched the mod code for at least 10 years - and I can still remember a few things, which is a testament of how much it occupied my thoughts back then).
