  1. With the newer (and updated) version of TDM (2.07) the esc key, it's not working anymore. It seems that the key it's not recognized. I already tried on renaming my Darkmod.cfg, but the newer *.cfg created on start has the same problem. The first lines are: unbindall bind "0x00" "_impulse48" bind "ESCAPE" "togglemenu" bind "SPACE" "_moveup" ... Any idea/suggestion/faq to solve this? [I'm with Linux, Kubuntu 18.04, TDM has always worked lovely on Linux for me] [UPDATE] Maybe it's this bug on bugtracker? https://bugs.thedarkmod.co

  4. Hello folks, I'm a Linux (Mint) user and in games I'm using the arrow keys for movement (probably the worst kind of gamer to most of you) since I'm left-handed. On both my Linux machines (Mint 18 and 19) TDM does not recognize the arrow keys and instead sets it to zero (0x00) on each arrow key pressed, making it impossible to configure the controls to use this scheme. However, the arrow keys on the numpad (8, 4, 6 and 2) are recognized as such, which is not what I want. I've also tried different keyboards and different system layouts (since I'm using a german keyboard with the respective la
  5.

  6. The still ongoing Windows 10 topic sparked my curiosity why people do not just switch to Linux. But users of other OSes are also allowed to vote.
  7. I've seen major slowdown of the kind i experience on menus on the darkmod also on retroarch and the root cause of that was using XWayland and was solved by compiling Wayland support in. The 'xeyes test' (xeyes move if the xeyes can capture the mouse over the window being focused over is not Wayland) fails, so apparently the context is not x11, but the command line says things like: ----- Initializing OpenGL ----- Setup X display connection dlopen(libGL.so.1) Initializing OpenGL display Using XFree86-VidModeExtension Version 2.2 Free86-VidModeExtension Activated at 1366x768 ...

  8. http://bugs.thedarkmod.com/view.php?id=4893 I found a very problematic issue in the engine. I'm running TDM 2.06, 64bit executable, Linux version (openSUSE Tumbleweed x64). The issue is as follows: Previously, if a bad script or definition or missing asset error occurred, TDM would crash back to the main menu and the error would appear in the console. It seems this is no longer the case and something worse happens instead: Errors will now cause the process to freeze, shortly followed by a permanent black screen. The reason why this is annoying is because alt-tab switching still doesn't w
  9. Moving the gamma and the brightness sliders does not do anything if I have set the Nvidia GPU in Nvidia X Server Settings, but they work with the Intel HD GPU. This is very annoying since I think the Intel HD GPU is a lot slower than the Nvidia one so I mostly use later, but if I want to play The Dark Mod (and I want to see the level (the default brightness and gamma is very dark)) I have to switch to the Intel HD GPU. What should I do to make the brightness and the gamma changeable with the Nvidia GPU. I am using Ubuntu 16.04, GeForce 820M/PCIe/SSE2(I guess).
  10. Hello all, I am trying to compile and play The Dark Mod under my platform (Gentoo Linux). After patching the patchable to make it compile, it turns out that no rendering is shown on screen at all: black screen (with resolution change), mouse is responsive and I can hear the reaction of the GUI to its movement (clicks and all); also the background music (soothing, charming, beautiful... but that you know already) cuddles my ears. I started the bisection of the code from version 2.05 (I think... it was r6753) to r7203. It took me a while (none of the commits compiles out of the box, and differen
  11. I am trying to compile The Dark Mod (r7203) under Linux. It appears commit r7128 calls GLimp_DeactivateFrontendContext() (framework/Session.cpp line 3017), whose implementation is not provided for Linux (sys/linux/glimp.cpp), while it is provided for Windows (sys/win32/win_glimp.cpp). Any solution to this?
  12. When playing The Dark Mod I can not use system keyboard shortcuts like Alt-Tab, Esc or Alt-F4. This means that the only way to exit the game is by going to the main menu and quiting there. And there is no way to just minimize it. This is extremely annoying, particularly when I accidentally click an other window after I run the game, but before it loads its window because that means that the game window will appear under the current window and it will lock my mouse and I don't see anything from it, my only option in this case is long holding the power button to turn off the computer. Th
  13. Yesterday I installed 'The Dark Mod' version 2.05 on my computer. ('tdm_update.linux' worked great, but took FOREVER. The resultant 'thedarkmod.x86' file is 6.5 MB in size.) My issues: When starting the program (./thedarkmod.x86), I get great audio, but only a black screen (window).When running on full desktop mode (not in a window), both monitors go black.I can hear clicking when I move the (invisible) mouse pointer within the black screen. Unfortunately, the only way I found to get things back to 'normal' is to do a 'CTRL+ALT+BACKSPACE', since I cannot get the mouse pointer to my desktop
  14. We have some internal changes happening in the TDM source code now. As a result of these changes, Linux build is not working in the latest SVN version. This is not appropriate of course The idea is to fix Linux build incrementally, step by step. But the problem is: I have only 64-bit Linux in virtual machine, and it cannot run TDM there. I would be very grateful if some Linux geeky player could help me with testing the builds. In order to do this, you need: Real Linux OS installed (i.e. not in VM) Running native Linux build of TDM Some skill to build TDM (I think this point follows from
  15. I created this script for personal use, but thought it would be of enough interest to share here. I'm in the process of porting a few texture packs into TDM from Xonotic... each texture containing a diffuse / normal / specular map, as well as optionally a glow / reflection map. Obviously I don't want to have to manually create the same material for every texture, so I made a script to do it for me! Usage: Save this as a .sh file and place it in your texture pack's directory, next to the texture pack's subdirectories. Adjust the variables to match your texture package. Then just run the scrip

OS: Debian Sid PC specs: e3 1230 v5 32 gb ddr4 ram sapphire rx 480 asrock e3v5 gaming/oc mobo 2 ssd drives As the title says, trying to change gamma or brigthness settings have no visual effects ingame when launching the linux binary. I've launched the windows binary with wine 1.9.x, where it seems to work but this seems to be a workaround for this isssue. I've removed the xserver-xorg-video-amdgpu driver from debian sid, because it was causing signal loss on the hdmi output for the rx 480. Without this package, my other games that were failing are launching fine
  17. First I'd like to apologise for my lack of contribution in this forum in the last few months I am grateful to Hamlet and Nightstalker and many others for their efforts to get the linux version compiling and running. I would have liked to have provided more help but I'm a complete amateur with no formal training and it seems like every time I tried to write something contributory, I found I was unsure of what I was trying to say or lacking in basic understanding. For these reasons, I decided to remain silent rather than muddy the waters. Ok with that out of the way I'll explain my current p
  18. So I'm trying to install this on linux and it seems to start strong but then immediately cease getting new data. I've left it overnight and it still indicates the same files, I don't think it got any new content. Is there some means of specifying mirrors or for that matter a means of going to a mirror directly to get what I need?
  19. Hi. i played TDM a bit of time ago, and i wanted to re-download it, as i had to reset my pc. while i was updating, i noticed something horrifying. the download speed was 7kbs/sec! and after the file was updatd, the next one was 3kbs/sec!!! guys. i know this is a free and open source game, so you dont get any money, but i can't wait for this long! will you please speed it up at least to 100kbs/sec?

  20. I am reporting here my experience with compiling TheDarkMod from sources on Linux. I am going to attach some patches, but beware that especially the ones related to build may be specific to the system.I have used a Gentoo Linux distribution, with multilib enabled (that means that I have a lot of libraries compiled also in 32 bit version).Relevant packages:GNU compiler: 5.4.0Boost libraries: 1.62.0The Dark Mode: SVN trunk (2.06+, last commit: 6731, Dec 15, 2016). Finally, I am new to this program and I have gone mostly from scratch, likely ignoring a big deal of lore that may demonstrate some o
  21. Greetings, I'm looking for some information (or anecdotes or anything, really!) about the state of TDM source code compilation under Linux. I've been test-compiling the latest official (2.04) TDM source code on 32-bit Slackware 14.2 and I'm a bit confused because there seems to be no way that that code would compile without at least 1 tweak under any Linux distribution (and even more tweaks under a modern Linux distribution). I've also taken a look at the Doom3 (non-'BFG Edition') source code release and, frankly, the same could be said about that code release, which probably explains
  22. Folks, I've decided to start a new thread on this since the other recent Linux threads are not really the appropriate place (IMHO) to discuss the gory details about fixing the 2.05-beta source code so that it compiles and runs under Linux. Unfortunately, there is already some existing discussion about compiles against 2.05-beta (and "latest SVN") mixed about in these 2 threads: Compiling TDM 2.04 Under LinuxCalling on Linux devs: TDM team needs helpTo start this thread off, I'm replying to this post by duzenko. Good news! I tweaked the 'if (1)' line (in 'renderer/RenderSystem.cpp') to be 'i
  23. Hi I've recently installed Dark Mod (downloaded tdm_update.linux, made it executable and ran it). Unfortunately, when I run the game, I get no sound. I tried several things, but none of them worked. I tried: running pasuspender ./thedarkmod.x86running ./thedarkmod.x86 +set s_alsa_pcm sysdefault:CARD=PCH after checking if there is a seta s_driver "best" line in Darkmod.cfgrunning pasuspender ./thedarkmod.x86 +set s_alsa_pcm sysdefault:CARD=PCHchanging seta s_alsa_pcm "surround51:CARD=PCH,DEV=0" to NVidia and DEV=0, 1 and 3., also to default and surround51 and stereochanged seta s_driver to "os
  24. (this is a follow up from a question in My experience with The Dark Mod under Linux) I am writing a new post on a question that I think is better to follow its own thread. If this is against the policy or the custom, I apologise - please let me know in that case. I had not tried. I am not very willing to play that mission since I haven't played the previous two (and my skill are shaped so far only by the training mission), but I can do some testing. At this point it's relevant that I know what I am looking for. I downloaded it and started it. first time: looked at the introduction, spent a
  25. I have compiled The Dark Mod on Gentoo Linux (I detailed my experience in another post). I have a problem: the light gem is always completely dark. Guards will react to noise and to touch, but I could stand in front of them making faces and they will politely ignore my presence. I have bisected the commits and tracked back the problem to commit #4379. Reverting that single commit fixes my problem. Not surprisingly, I do not understand that commit. I can try things though. I should assume this does not happen on Windows. Is this material for a bug report?
