  1. As the refactoring in 5323, there would be option to skip success screen completely. Although it probably won't work for campaigns. Also there would be option to replace music/background for success screen. The music along can already be overriden, although the approach cited by @Dragofer is not the best one. Better find this text in mainmenu_custom_defs.gui, uncomment it and set the sound shader you want: // Uncomment this to override the default mission success sound //#undef MM_MISSION_SUCCESS_SOUND_CMD //#define MM_MISSION_SUCCESS_SOUND_CMD "music mission_complete;"
  2. 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 ... an
  3. Update, I have no idea what I did, but I restarted my machine (again) and it seems to be working... @MODS - Lock and/or Delete thread Hello Everyone, Was really enjoying this game yesterday when I downloaded it, ran into no problems at all and was quite happy playing though the training mission and getting used it, however gone to load it up today and I'm getting an immediate grey screen which just stays there until I click a few times to which a windows error message saying TheDarkMod is not responding is shown. I'm running 64bit windows 10 and both TheDarkMod and TheDarkM
  4. 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.
  5. I just installed tdm, and I clicked on the exe, when it loaded, the screen is all black, and what I assume is the main menu music is playing, with no video or graphics in the slightest. Any help is appreciated, thanks.
  6. How about setting this screen resolution in darkmod.cfg? I dont have a big screen to test it.
  7. Presumably this part is the problem? If the lighting interaction shader cannot be compiled, a black screen is likely to result.
  8. 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.
  9. Also, for some reason it often helps to delete darkmod.cfg after an update, so that you get a new one when you next start TDM. Worth keeping a backup of it in case that doesn't fix the black screen.
  10. Yes, try to update your video drivers. And if there is a darkmod.log in your darkmod folder, we would like to see it. Open the file with notepad and copy its content in this topic. in the following topics, you can find some other pointers: https://forums.thedarkmod.com/index.php?/search/&q=black screen&quick=1&type=forums_topic&nodes=58
  11. The engine always supplies the "system textures" in absence of diffuse/normal/specular textures, so should get a black texture, which multiplied by model's vertex color should give black, I guess.
  12. Nevermind, it's always the easiest solution that occurs to one last. I set the windows resolution to 1920x1080, which centers the screen on the 32:9 Samsung and TDM then is also centered with black bars.
  13. Hello, I'm trying to run TDM in 16:9 (1920x1080) on a Samsung C49RG94 32:9 monitor. What I want to achieve is not widescreen play (which is working), but I want to play TDM in 16:9 centered with black bars on each side. The PBP (picture by picture) of the monitor doesn't seem to support this (left or right side only, but not centered) and the monitor software "Easy Setting Box" also does not seem able to achive this. So I'm looking for way to either run TDM in fullscreen or in window mode with black bars on each side. In window-mode the two best programs I have found s
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. 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. The
  17. 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 be
  18. Thanks so much for getting back to me regarding this! I was able to grant full permission for the application, however it's still not allowing the installation of maps (both the maps that came downloaded with the game, and the ones that are downloadable via the mission archive). Should I just re-download TDM entirely, following the steps listed on the wiki, or was there another possible solution to try (I checked both my internet access and mirror for the missions, both of which seem fine)? Thanks again for your help with this, freyk! I greatly appreciate it! *Also, here'
  19. Thanks for that. Yeah I figured it was coming from the monitor, as if it can't display the output from the PC then it wouldn't be able to display any message from it too, but for those who just get a black screen & music this might help. And apologies for putting this thread in the wrong forum, thanks for shifting it, whoever it was
  20. Nice to know that sollution works for your display monitor. Please note that warning screen is coming from your dell display monitor, not from TDM. On the following site you will find some sollutions for this warning screen from your monitor display: https://appuals.com/fix-the-current-input-timing-is-not-supported-by-the-monitor-display/ (also the sollution to change the screen resolution of a game)
  21. Hi all, I just put the 64 bit version of TDM on my machine running Zorin 15.2, I figured it's based on Ubuntu so it should be OK When I ran thedarkmod.x64 I got the intro music playing & a black screen with a pop up saying - I couldn't stop TDM & had to blip the power button to get the system to shut down. So I dug around a bit on my old windows system that ran TDM on the same monitor & found the following lines in Darkmod.cfg seta r_customHeight "1080" seta r_customWidth "1920" on the Linux system they were seta r_customHeight "600" seta r
  22. Hello I'm new to Dark Mod and I have a problem with the screen. The field of vision behaves strange like I have 360° vision. When I move the mouse, the field of vision is warped. Why is that? How can I turn it off?
  23. Hi everyone! Ok, I'm a great fan of Thief series that has been apart for years from the fans community... until now. Days ago I found the DDFix mod, then the HD Mod, and now this! Such a GORGEOUS mod guys, I have seen the demos! I can't wait to play it! Ok, but not that fast. After a hard time with the downloading (I live in the mountains and I connect to internet with a modem service in which I pay for every Mb downloaded), the game won't start. I get first a white screen when loading, and then a big black screen with beautiful and mysterious music (just to grow up my pain ). If I move

  25. Not so long ago I found what could make a pretty good profile picture and decided to try it out on these new forums. But I couldn't find a button anywhere that would let me change it. I asked on Discord and it seems Spooks also couldn't find anything anywhere. So I logged into an old alternative account and, lo and behold, that account has a button. This is on the first screen I get when I: 1) click on my account name in the top-right of the browser -> 2) click on 'profile'. Compared to my actual account: Are you also missing this button on your account? It'd be very much ap
