  1. Well well well. I don't know which of those settings made the difference (r_glCoreProfile is set to 2, by the way), but it seems to work properly now. Do you want me to try recreating the problem to determine which setting was important, or shall I just take this as a win? I've attached the console log file, there are quite a lot of warnings on loading, but maybe this is normal? Otherwise looks ok to me. For this log I just started the map, let the conversation finish, saved the game, checked the menu screen was working, climbed up towards the generator and onto the open window ... and fell to the ground while trying to enter the window! Looking forward to playing this properly at the right time. I'll also attach my .cfg file, but there's nothing interesting there, I reset it. darkmod.log Darkmod.cfg P.S. What do those .cfg settings mean and do? I couldn't find anything relevant with a quick use of google. P.P.S. Thank you for the help!
  2. I updated SVN to see if I could confirm the problem, but when I try running the game all I see is a black screen. I can hear the music and the sounds of the options, but can't see anything, even when trying to pull down the console.
  3. Arch Linux, stable build, amdgpu drivers (rx480), GNOME-SHELL DE, primary display 1440p144hz, secondary display 4k 50hz. Upon launching the game, display settings are altered from join-displays to mirrored. Also, fullscreen is impossible when attempting to run the game with the 4k screen as the primary display.
  4. I'm desperate to play TDM but I just can't get past the blank menu screen problem. I have a native Linux (Ubuntu Lucid) Doom 3 install which runs perfectly on a Dell Inspiron 1525 (Intel X3100 integrated graphics) but no matter what TDM fix, update, or install I try, I always get a blank menu screen with just a cursor and the TDM music playing. I've clicked about on the blank screen before and have seen some sort of intro running so I'm pretty sure this is just a problem with the menus. I've been trying to get TDM running for weeks now and have trawled this site and google for fixes but have hitherto got nowhere. Is there something I can do to get TDM running on my machine? If it helps, here's the last log when I ran tdmlauncher.linux from my console... { X..GL_ATI_fragment_shader not found X..GL_ATI_text_fragment_shader not found ...using GL_ARB_vertex_buffer_object ...using GL_ARB_vertex_program ...using GL_ARB_fragment_program X..EXT_depth_bounds_test not found ---------- R_NV20_Init ---------- Not available. ----------- R200_Init ----------- Not available. ---------- R_ARB2_Init ---------- Available. --------------------------------- ----- R_ReloadARBPrograms ----- glprogs/test.vfp glprogs/test.vfp glprogs/interaction.vfp glprogs/interaction.vfp glprogs/bumpyEnvironment.vfp glprogs/bumpyEnvironment.vfp glprogs/ambientLight.vfp glprogs/ambientLight.vfp glprogs/shadow.vp glprogs/R200_interaction.vp glprogs/nv20_bumpAndLight.vp glprogs/nv20_diffuseColor.vp glprogs/nv20_specularColor.vp glprogs/nv20_diffuseAndSpecularColor.vp glprogs/environment.vfp glprogs/environment.vfp glprogs/arbVP_glasswarp.txt: File not found glprogs/arbFP_glasswarp.txt: File not found ------------------------------- using ARB_vertex_buffer_object memory using ARB2 renderSystem found DLL in pak file: /home/dominic/.doom3/darkmod/tdm_game02.pk4/gamex86.so copy gamex86.so to /home/dominic/.doom3/darkmod/gamex86.so Found Intel CPU, features: MMX SSE SSE2 SSE3 CMOV game using generic code for SIMD processing. --------- Initializing Game ---------- The Dark Mod 1.05, code revision 4749 Build date: Apr 6 2011 Initializing event system ...763 event definitions Initializing class hierarchy ...166 classes, 732480 bytes for event callbacks Initializing scripts /proc/cpuinfo CPU frequency: 1862.44 MHz Compiled 'removeInitialSplineAngles': 270.0 ms ---------- Compile stats ---------- Memory usage: Strings: 42, 6672 bytes Statements: 19670, 393400 bytes Functions: 1150, 117892 bytes Variables: 88108 bytes Mem used: 1080244 bytes Static data: 2277552 bytes Allocated: 2793680 bytes Thread size: 7068 bytes ...5 aas types game initialized. -------------------------------------- Parsing material files WARNING: Couldn't load image: fonts/english/micro/stone_0_12 WARNING: Couldn't load image: fonts/english/micro/stone_0_24 WARNING: Couldn't load image: fonts/english/micro/stone_1_24 WARNING: Couldn't load image: fonts/english/micro/stone_0_48 WARNING: Couldn't load image: fonts/english/micro/stone_1_48 WARNING: Couldn't load image: fonts/english/micro/stone_2_48 WARNING: Couldn't load image: fonts/english/micro/stone_3_48 WARNING: Couldn't load image: fonts/english/micro/stone_4_48 Renderpipe: Trying to open file: /dev/shm/tdm_lg_render.tga Renderpipe: File opened: /dev/shm/tdm_lg_render.tga Found 0 new mission packages.

What can I do? I've tried downloading the torrent. Updated with every tdm_update.linux from the different mirrors... all to no avail. I have noticed, however, that the 'tdm_shared_stuff.zip' file isn't in my '~.doom3/darkmod' folder after any update but I'm just assuming that it unpacks? Sorry if I haven't been technical enough in explaining my problem, I'm no expert, just know the bare BASH/linux basics etc so any help in finally getting this mod running will be well appreciated. I can see there are issues in the above log but I don't know what they mean so have googled a fair few of them but haven't had any luck at all. I'm even considering deleting my native Linux Doom3 install, reinstalling D3 in WINE, and trying to get TDM running in that? Would that be worth a go? I just gotta play this mod Cheers for any feedback
  5. I've deleted tdm_base01.pk4 and run the update again. the problem still appers, only difference is, that the blackscreen is coming a later. for the first 2 or 3 seconds you can see a grey screen now. the driver version is 8.970.100.9001 (see screenshot) I tried to update it but it always says it's the newest one. I really think the only way to solve that problem is to buy a better grapic card.
  6. Hello Taffers, Today when I tried TDM, and the resolution was not full screen. I don't know why, i changed absolutely nothing. This is the effect on my screen: http://bayimg.com/nAkOOAADG (the game start perfectly but not scale at full screen, i have alway the the little black border on left high, as you can see on the image) I tried configuring a lot of settings in the doomconfig.cfg on the darkmod root, but without any success :-( Any idea/suggestion to solve this? My HW/SW configuration is on my sign.
  7. Strange ... After trying to capture in-game screenshots for comparison between 2.06 and SVN, and taking Windows screen captures for comparison, the problem has morphed to: SVN is darker than 2.06, but the "nearly-all-black screen" condition that I saw has changed to a "noticeably darker, but not all-black" condition. Since I invoked SVN by accident while working with my WIP in 2.06, I'm willing to let this go until we get into 2.07 beta and see how other existing missions behave. Perhaps it was some unexplained momentary glitch on my end.
  8. Black screen or black window? Perhaps a screenshot of the files in your tdm folder (detailed view with file sizes, etc)
  9. I once got tdm working on my desktop once, and it was great! But I have since scrapped it, and now have a laptop instead. Though I have got it running on my laptop, things aren't as smooth as hoped. For instance, if I enable vsync the game becomes VERY choppy, even from the menu screen. This makes it virtually unplayable. I've managed to get it to run by forcing vsync off in the nvidia control panel, but this has left me with the annoying lines that vsync corrects. Also, one thing I have not been able to change at all is the the screen size. For some reason the game doesn't utilize my entire screen. Instead it only takes up about only half of the screen, leaving black borders on the sides. I've tried messing with the aspect ratio an resolution to no avail. This, coupled with the vsync problem has proved very annoying. Has anyone had a similar issue? My specs are: Windows 7 64bit i5 2.40GHz quad core GeForce 335M 4gb DDR3 RAM Note: This might even be a problem with my video drivers. Last I updated them, they've been conflicting with my source games. Thanks!
  10. Full screen. Just tried running in windowed by changing the Darkmod.cfg setting. Still showing black screen with TDM mouse. I've got this version originally by updating from 2.06 to 2.07. The result was the same as now. Then I deleted all files except fms folder and downloaded the updater again from www.thedarkmod.com There are no subdirectories except fms and screenshots (which I deleted when I reinstalled TDM so now I only have missionshots folder inside fms and no screenshots folder anymore). I'll try reinstalling again and report back. qqq.txt
  11. O-key is a neat way to bring forth the objectives list (the 'O' screen) in game. The other way to see objectives is to go in the main menu and select objectives in there. I noticed that the 'O' screen shows the back-button overlapping with the last objective text if the objective does have two lines of text. See the image. I've smudged the objective texts to shield you from spoilers, but you should see what I mean. If I look the same objective list in the main menu objective list, the back-button is not overlapping with the text and everything looks neat. I'd say that the 'O' screen and the menu objective screen should be consistent in how much text of objectives they can show. Two full lines of objectives text should definately be available. The up and down arrows should be moved downwards a bit. Or maybe put them in a row instead of a column? It looks a bit bad when the text overlaps with the button. Thanks!
  12. When a user run the updater, the developer of the updater inspects the user that uses a stable to internet and tdm mirrors. You could create code to download files from a mirror, change the weight of some mirrors in the the tdm-mirror list. Does the tdm updater for linux, generates screen-output, a tdm-mirror file and tdm-log? If so, check the screen output, content tdm_update.log. And change mirror selection in the tdm-mirrors.txt. (dont forget to use the startup arguments of the updater) My advice is to read the installation manual on the wiki, check my code on my github page for the deb/rpm packages, look at the needed dependencies & write permissions. Compare all this with the aur (and the excistings aur's). Also look into other archlinux topics in this subforum. Manual for installation tdm on linux: http://wiki.thedarkmod.com/index.php?title=Installer_and_Manual_Installation#Linux http://wiki.thedarkmod.com/index.php?title=The_Dark_Mod_-_Compilation_Guide I have some experience by trying to create linux rpm/deb packages, but its not much to help you.
  13. --> techsupport. Dont know. Please select a low screen resolution, like 800X600, set full screen and restart the game. Test if it get on full screen. If so, set the screen resolution and aspect ratio to your taste. Which screenresolution and aspect ratio do you want to select?
  14. Bit of background first: when I first downloaded TDM v1, I suffered the same symptoms: after the first start or two, the main menu would be always completely black. The music would play, and you could click on the menu options if you moved the invisible mouse cursor to the right spot, but still obviously a game breaking bug. At that time, running the updater fixed the problem, and I figured it was probably a corrupted download. Now the problem is back. Just now I've installed a new FM, and the program rebooted itself to a completely blank black main menu screen. Everything behaves the same way, with one difference: running the updater does NOT fix it. In fact, the updater says my installation is up to date. Help would be appreciated. System specs: WinXP Dual Pentium CPU 4 GB RAM GeForce 9600 None of this has changed since I last played, so I doubt it's a hardware problem. EDIT: I've downloaded the torrent (non-updater based) version and overwrote my previous installation with it. It fixed the problem - at least for a short while. I now suspect the problem is integral to one specific FM, namely Glenham Tower. Will post more if I have anything. EDIT: Turns out the issue was most likely that Total Commander automatically puts brackets around certain (hidden?) directory names, and I thought they were meant to be an actual part of the name, so the installation of the FM went wrong. I think, anyway. Problem no longer around.
  15. Nice! I never paid much attention to the render scale option, I assumed it was just something for DPI scaling. We'll still have to grab the screen resolution at startup but everything else should be simplified after that. I'll look at the Windows code for comparison of the logical results. Taking care of this should lead to a better first impression and overall experience on Linux.
  16. Feel free to remove screen resolution change code COMPLETELY and just maximize the window. That's what happens on Windows since a few years ago. The engine now renders 3D in offscreen framebuffer and its dimension is controlled via render scale GUI option. I'm sure the less legacy burden we need to carry on Linux, the better for everyone.
  17. It was easy enough to find the relevant code so I took a first look at this. Here's what I found: On Windows, there's a function to get the current desktop screen resolution and use it on first run. On other platforms that function is a no-op and you end up with an 800x600 resolution by default. Without going into details, this function is called too early in the startup process for it to work on Linux. I've got 2 possible ways to work around this that I'm trying out. The current mode-setting code for choosing a resolution uses the original, old-school X API calls. These aren't very multi-monitor friendly and librandr has superseded these calls for quite some time now. Since the platform-specific windowing code is really self-contained, I don't think it will be too hard for me to swap it out and see if things improve. The same area of the code already sets some X Window hints, I believe I could tack on a few more here to create a borderless mode equivalent as I previously described without much additional effort. It seems like this is more or less what several other fullscreen applications do on Linux too.
  18. Evening Any of you guys got a dual screen setup, and if so have any of you managed to get TDM/DOOM to reliably open on the second monitor..? - I managed to get working once with ultramon, but it cant be done reliable (as I cant figure out how I got it working) - as I have an Ati card I can install Hydravision, but that randomly mucks about with my windows sizes. Ultramon work fine will ALL non-directX/Direct3D apps, Im hopping there is a way to get windows via an app to force TDM to open on second screen etc.
  19. I've actually got the same situation with dual-monitors on my Linux desktop. I was recently reminded that this happens out-of-the-box by wiping settings for the 2.08 beta (where it does still happen). The workaround I've always used is to run it windowed at the full resolution of my monitor. Then (in KDE at least, I'm sure others have similar settings), apply window- or application-specific properties to select a monitor, remove the window border, and disable compositing. This also has the benefit of letting you access your other monitor whenever you open the in-game console. I believe there are some window manager hints that we could set to automatically achieve this, this sounds about like the Linux equivalent of "borderless" mode anyways. I don't think the poor experience is a driver-specific issue, just the fact that multi-monitors in linux has always been a pain, and also changing the resolution on the fly tends to ruin your desktop even if the program is nice enough to change it back for you afterwards. It might also be better to detect the current resolution on first run and use it by default instead of resizing to whatever the current default value is. I think forcefully changing resolutions like that was more acceptable back when Doom 3 came out than it is now. As far as X vs Wayland goes, fullscreen is one of the areas where native X vs the XWayland compatibility layer may not work identically. I'd expect XWayland to disallow some of the more invasive screen resolution changes, but I haven't really played with it to know for sure. For reference, here are my relevant specs: OS: Arch Linux Graphics driver: AMDGPU Desktop: KDE (plasma5) using Xorg I could do a little research and see if there are any modern guidelines/best practices for fullscreen on Linux and at least make some recommendations. If I get enough free time I might be able to look at the code as well.
  20. Solved (sort of)! There is evidently a minor bug in the way skybox tdm_sky_starry1 works with portal sky. The somewhat different tdm_sky_starry2 doesn't suffer it. The bug is not typically visible due to ground structures and clutter. To reproduce the problem: 1) Start a new project, with a hollow box as a room (e.g., 512 units per side) 2) Texture the sides with portal sky, except give the floor a typical (not too dark) texture. 3) Outside the room, create prefab nature/skybox/tdm_sky_starry1.pfb 4) In the room centroid, create entity Lights/sources/atdm_ambient_world. As usual, extend its scope to all the room. 5) For easy bug detection, change its colour spawnarg to be something too bright, e.g., RGB(255,255,255). 6) Set the player start, then save, dmap, run. 7) Run the player around the floor perimeter, with the black sky to the player's left, and the player viewing the floor. As you move the player around, look for a small square in the lower-left corner of the screen, when that corner is over the portal sky texture. It's as if it's the view of a high-contrast security camera (attached to the player's chin?)
  21. I found a bit of a weird work-around for this, that's a bit of a pain to set up but appears to do something. Run TDM from one machine through Steam, stream it to the machine you want to play it on that has a weird aspect - Steam resizes everything to fit the screen of the machine to which TDM is being streamed. I've plugged in an old 4:3 monitor to an old machine and then Steam-streamed it to another machine that is running a monitor at 16:9 and there's no letterboxing as, eg, watching an old TV show from the 80's on a widescreen. There's a little clipping where it's stretched, compared to how the game looks on the other screen (sides cut off a little) but that can probably be fixed through FOV (which will tax the other machine further). GUI's look dodgy and stretched - but the game itself fits the monitor and doesn't look so bad, even if it is struggling because the other machine isn't really powerful enough to run the game. Quality is ok, takes ages to load. Don't notice any input lag but the game is almost unplayable due to the machine not being up to the task - it's basically playing it on a Gateway that is usually used for DOS 6.2 and Win 3.1, that can just about run XP, instead of on the powerhouse or streamed from one of my craptops (that have other aspects also, but I know I can stream 1920x1080 to them and use this machine for its power and play Total War Atilla on a computer that can't run it - Steam handles the resizing to fit). Not a very good work-around but it's a work-around. // doing it the other way - from the big machine at 16:9 to the gateway at 4:3 - it fits the screen and runs like a dream.
  22. Holy hell that many! I tried "Tears of Saint.Lucia" and add no ctd's but i did noticed one thing that I didn't noticed before, the skybox was pitch black! I saw it because the water puddles reflected a starry night and I looked up and saw black. So i take back what I said about having no problems. Also this is more a suggestion when the intro for this mission starts, after some time, a tip could show telling the player how to skip it, telling him to use the action button, why, because I tried to skip with ESC and add to start the mission again.
  23. Evening I have borrowed a friend's monitor to test out tri-screen eyefinity on my HD5870, I want to test RTTC at 5040*1050 and see whats its like... he he he ... I know some got TDMN working on 3 screens, but I cant get ot to play nice, whats the settings in the autoexec file thats needs etc..? :-)
  24. Here are more details as I promised: I've updated darkmod, some little files were downloaded, but I supposed only CRC files, next I started my tests. The failure message always is: Joint 'HIPS' not found for attachment position 'HIPS_SHEATH_L' for entity 'XXX' - where XXX is always some different name of some entity in the map definition. There are two kinds of behaviours: A ) - mission falls off to the difficulty/objectives screen without any message, there is no difficulty choosed, and objectives sheet is empty, you can choose difficulty again and click start mission again, loading starts again, falls of again to the same screen but message box with error description is shown. You can choose start mission again and again and every time the message box with same description will be shown. So the message is not shown only first time. This kind of behaviour is in the missions when animated description of plot is shown before objectives screen like alchemist or beleaguered fence. Additionally - I can't tell if it is normal or no - I can't skip the animation - when I press escape DarkMod's main menu is shown and next escapes do not take me back to the animation - I need to start mission again. B ) - mission falls off to objectives screen or rarely (once or twice) to menu, messagebox behaves like before, but sound is disabled. I can start mission over and over again with same effect - joint hips error and no sound. From my experience this happens when missions have plot displayed the same way as the objectives - on the sheet of yellow crumpled paper. After restarting DarkMod sound is OK. There are deviations from both A and B behaviours sometimes described below. It also seems that optional presence of buy screen (some missions have it, others do not) does not influence the behaviour. Often next tries of loading once installed mission make the progress bar go slightly further but it's only true for first 1-3 attempts. Then mission loads or always fails at the same level of progress bar. Here is the mission list with additional details if some occur: 01) alchemist - no, behaviour A plus after escaping the animation cursor is not visible but I can move the mouse and highlight menu positions if I'm lucky and click them then or cursor is not visible and I cannot find any position like cursor is not moving virtually anymore, but this happens only after load failure. When I escape plot animation before first failure occurs cursor works fine. Entity name is Pertti. 02) awaiting the storm - no, behaviour B 03) beleaguered fence - no, behaviour A 04) betrayal - (this is the mission with prison and skeleton) - yes, but behaviour A - how this is possible? Mission loads successfully after second, third or rarely fourth time - never first. Previous behaviour is the A-kind, messagebox is not shown only the first time. Saving works. Loading the save works always the second time, first time messagebox is not shown as always. 05) builder's influence - this is interesting. First try - behaviour B, although there is animated intro in that mission. Second time - full success and sound comes back after loading when 3d mode is on (when plot animates and objectives/buy screens are displayed there is no sound). I can switch to menu and back and sound is fine everywhere. Mission looks beautiful, mmmm!!!! Saving and loading works great, no need for additional attempts when loading the save. Another try - escaping animation of plot and again I can't go back to it - I need to start mission again. I do it waiting whole animation to end every time and mission loads after second attempt as before. 06) business as usual - no, behaviour B, tried about 10 times because second time was interesting - game loaded completely, 'game loaded - please wait' label was displayed, few seconds of waiting like in every missions that reached this point and instead of mission I got objectives screen with hips error message. This never happened again. 07) caduceus of st. alban (mission with beautiful lamp with planets around the bulb:)) - exactly like builder's influence, but this mission has no animated plot - I come the reasonable idea that existance of plot animation in the mission has really nothing to do here (unlike I thought before). OK, let's go to next mission. 08) chalice of kings - like 5 and 7 09) crown of penitence - like 5 10) entertainment - like 5 11) flakebridge monastery - like 7 12) glenham tower - like 7 13) heart of lone salvation - mission has animated plot intro and is unusual - first attempt fails to objective screen as always after displaying the plot during loading, every next attempt of starting the mission by clicking 'start mission' button on objectives screen loading finishes and game escapes to objectives screen with joint hips error on entity 'andrew' - I remembered the easy name. Also interesting - in every next attempt since second I do not need to watch animated intro, I've got objectives screen instantly. Of course when I go to main menu and start mission I need to watch intro again - but only first time. Also next - when game fails to objectives screen names of difficulty levels are corrupted - they look like constants in the code or some configuration file, not like content of this constants. Something tells me this might be good mission for testing.... Finally I press escape and instead of displaying DarkMod menu I got intro again. I press escape again and have menu with no cursor. I use ctrl-alt-delete and first time I have no cursor in windows also - to be more specific windows task menager is not over the desktop but over darkmod screen and I suppose this is the cause for which cursor is still not available. I need to use keyboard shortcuts to kill darkmod in task manager. 14) illusionist tower - like 7 15) kinghton manor - no animated intro in this mission, this mission has plot displayed with interactive buttons to display next, previous screens of plot or skip it. Behaviour B. Entity name is 'Female_servatnt1'. No other bugs like in mission 13 so try looking into 'Female_servant1' definition and testing on this mission. 16) living expenses - behaviour B, entity is complex but contains word 'nobleman' 17) lockdown part 1 - started on the first attempt and starts every time easily!!!!!!! But there is other little problem, it has empty plot screen, but you can click next and difficulty screen and all after it is OK 18) mad's mountain - first attempt fails without messagebox, no sound then. Every next attempt causes message box but for the first time error is different but error message might be very usefull because it defines C++ class and method that failed: idAFEntity_BASE::LoadAF: Couldn't load at file 'GUARD_BASE_NEWSKEL' on entity 'ADTM_ENV_RAGDOLL_BEGGAR_1' 19) mandrasola - like 15, of course different entity name 20) NHAT mission 1/3 - First after restarting DarkMod after installing mission the great thing is changed main menu theme. Second is the movie, wow! but sometimes pixels in this movie are corrupted. Next the animated intro, difficulty screen, I click start mission and after 1/4 of progress bar it returns to difficulty screen. I click start mission again, loading starts from the point it ended (!) and mission works great starting from another animation and then I can play(save/load too). I can only suppose next two missions work the same way but to check this must finish first mission. 21) outpost - first time failure without message box, second time loads successfully. This is example of mission that fails to main menu, so you need to start it over, watch the animated intro again and again as many times as it fails. Despite of starting mission over loading starts from when it ended before - that is odd. 22) pandoras'box - behaviour B except two things: fails to main menu after first attempt (luckily no animated intro is here, so second attempt is fast) and voila - second attempt is successfull. It seems that disabled sound after first attempt is a good sign. 23) parcel - don't praise the day before the evening - disabled sound after first attempt, going back to main menu, then always joint hips error on entity 'jack'. 24) patently dangerous - like 23, entity 'Oswald'. 25) return to the city - like 15 and 19 (the same interactive plot screen) except that at second attempt everything works fine 26) rift - first attempt failure with no message, second attempt joint hips error on something like 'ADTM_something_GUARD_1'. I've seen this entity before in other mission with joint hips error so it's worth mentioning, but I can't remember which mission that was. Also it's worth to notice that instead of loading screen there is standard DarkMod theme with clock displayed - the same like when the DarkMod starts. This maybe some problem indicator or also it may be this way in this mission. 27) somewhere above the city 1.1 - very long intro but fortunately on first attempt mission fails to objective screen and second attempt is successfull 28) sons of baltona part 1 - no intro, first attempt fails, no sound, second attempt successfull from where loading finished on first attempt 29) sound alert and blackjack trainer - no objectives (funny and loading screen is theme with clock as in 26 (so I suppose this is the way it should be). First attempt fails to objectives screen, second attempt join hips error. 30) special delivery - first attempt fails to main menu, no sound, second attempt successfull 31) st. albans cathedral - first attempt fails to objectives menu, every next gives message box with join hips error on entity ADTM_AI_CITYWATCH_1 32) swing (mission with swinging something) - first attempt, full success 33) tears of st. lucia - first attempt fails to main menu, I haven't tried second because of very long intro, but as I remember from yesterday it's joint hips error 34) thieve's den - first attempt fails to objectives screen, no sound, no objectives displayed, you need to choose difficulty again and start mission again and got joint hips error on ADTM_AI_CITYWATCH_1 entity at every next attempt 35) thieves - first attemt fails to main menu, intro must be watched again when starting over and there it is: joint hips error on ADTM_AI_CITYWATCH_1 entity, probably st.lucia has the same entity as I remember 36) too late - first attempt fails to main menu, starting over (no intro) brings success 37) training mission - surprise, first attempt fails to objectives screen, no sound, second attempt successfull. Identical mission before was in french language, I don't remember which one 38) transaction - first attempt brings you to main menu, no sound, starting over returns message box with joint hips error on entity CITY_WATCH_STREET_PATROL_ALPHA 39) trapped - first attempt brings you to main menu, no sound, starting over successfull Don't you think that if so many missions fail because of joint 'hips' error than it isn't rather a problem with missions themselves but a common problem inside the engine? Responding to some other advise I'll try downloading all content tomorrow, now I must go asleep. I'm attaching list of files in "C:\Program Files (x86)\DOOM 3" directory - I haven't found any suitable tool for this task so I wrote one myself - I hope output is easily readable. I've attached my tool so you can generate your own result and compare them in kdiff3 or some other editor with compare option. You use it by entering the desired diretory in command line and call java -jar C:\dirscan.jar [--md5]. Parameter is optional. Ofcourse dirscan.jar in this example is placed in C:\. dirscan.jar will fail if scans the directory where is placed but I have no time to fix it now. Output is properly idented on linux, I can't now find reason why indent is not correct on windows, but should be readable. I hope my hard work will pay off and serve you well - I worked almost 6 hours on it instead of helping my girlfried tidying up our apartment but she understood so don't worry ;P.
