I'm not sure if this should go here or in the Tech Support section, so If this is the wrong place, please let me know. As a hobbyist game developer, I'm curious about how the Light Awareness System works in The Dark Mod. I've been poking through the source code, but haven't found any definitive math explaining it, or code comments mentioning on how it's calculated. If anyone could point me to exactly where to look, or could explain what steps and/or math it's using to calculate how visible the player is, I'd greatly appreciate the insight. For reference, I'm trying to implement a similar system in my own stealth game I'm working on in Unreal Engine 4.
I recently tried running the latest stable version of The Dark Mod (v. 2.03) with EAX support enabled and Stereo selected from the in-game options menu under Windows 10 Pro x64, only to discover certain missions install and let me get all the way to the "Mission Loading" screen, but cause portcls.sys to experience an unrecoverable crash; furthermore, the crash always renders the front two speakers (those used by a Stereo setup) to be permanently muted until I reinstall my soundcard drivers. The only way to resolve this issue is to turn EAX off. My system specifications are as follows: Operating system (OS): Windows 10 Pro 64-bit Processor (CPU): Intel Core i7 4770 @ 3.40GHz System memory (RAM): 24.00 GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 793.1MHz Hard drives: Hard disk drive (HDD): 2TB DellHard disk drive (HDD): 1TB Western Digital Solid State Drive (SS): 256GB Dell Video card (GPU): AMD Radeon R9 270 w/2GB memory Sound Card: Creative SoundBlaster X-Fi Titanium Fata1lity Professional
