Sorry, guys... I'm totaly new in map-design.

 

1. I created entity:

 

Darkmode/Readables/atdm:readable_mobile_scroll

 

2. Added Property: xdata_contents with value wolfnote1

 

3. Created folder xdata in maps folder

 

4. Created file dayofwolf.xd :

 

 

wolfnote1

{

precache

"num_pages": "1"

 

"page1_body" :

{

"Test"

}

 

}

 

Map compilated succesfully; scroll can be taken, but can't be read...

WYSIWYG editor also not starting. Says: "Cannot run Readable Editor on this selection. Please select a single XData entity."

 

What I'm doing wrong?

 

Sorry again for poor English.

I thik you need to update TDM to the latest version first. In order for this to work, you need to d/l the TDM Updater from the website, as the tdm_update.exe supplied with the first release of TDM didn't get a connection to the server (at least not in my case). After TDM is updated, everything should work fine.

Your xdata is incomplete. Also, the xdata folder does not go in the maps folder; it goes in the darkmod folder or game folder. The editor should create the xdata file for you anyway with xdata so I suggest you start again. Copy your text somewhere first if you've already types some stuff in.

I have an issue with the Readable Editor. When I try to work on a Readable I created in an empty map, nothing is shown on the preview screen. I attached a screenshot of my desktop, so that you can check the error messages in the console. If you need a copy of the complete console text (at least the yellow and red text), just say a word.

If you've selected a single readable entity, you'll have to update your TDM like 7upMan said. We changed something on the readables for the Readable Editor to work properly. Your XData definition is missing the gui_page statement in which you define which "look" shall be used to display the text, e.g. a book-texture or a scroll-texture.

 

@7upMan: Better post the whole error-list you also send me. Maybe someone else can make something of it.

Here's the list of the errors the DR console shows. I started copying the messages as soon as they turned up in a different color than black. Maybe you coder guys can make something of it.

As a BUMP I can say that I have the same problem; The text from the left isn't transferred onto the preview-sheets on the right...

Full log: Just copy everything in the console to a txt fle and post it here?

 

Fonts: How do I do that?

DarkRadiant can handle PK4s just fine, otherwise you wouldn't be able to use any material or entityDef.

 

But there's a bug in the code which prevents fonts from being found in PK4s, I guess a bugfix release is in order.

Yeah, I thought about that after my post :) But it's strange such a bug slipped through though. But anyway, good that we probably have found the cause. But it's not a big deal at the moment because I use a small map which DMAP's and loads fast when I test things like readables...

Well, we don't have a large testing team nor do we have many mappers left on the team who were not frantically working on their maps or the 1.01 release. Not an excuse, but that's how things are rolling.

 

But anyway, good that we probably have found the cause. But it's not a big deal at the moment because I use a small map which DMAP's and loads fast when I test things like readables...

As workaround I can only suggest to extract the contents of the tdm_fonts01.pk4 package such that the fonts/ folder is outside the PK4. But this is a hackish workaround so you should not forget about deleting it later on when DarkRadiant 1.2.1 is released.

*Shhh* You were supposed to be quiet about that one and test it silently!! :P But well, testing wouldn't have worked without the update of TDM anyway, like I later realized... You should definitely upgrade to 1.2 though and use the workaround greebo posted. There were quite some bugfixes since 1.1.1pre2.

 

But it's strange such a bug slipped through though.

That one probably slipped through because we all use the SVN copy of The Dark Mod, which does not have any pk4s. Still a little embarrassing something like this happens... :)

Ah, sorry, I thought it would help to find out the cause. So, can I d/l the zip version and just copy the contents over my previous DR install?

      It's funny how perception changes over the years. I've been replaying Bioshock in its Remastered version, and I'm surprised how bad the level design actually is. It's just a series of abstract corridor mazes that you can't really map out in your head. There's nothing that would ground them in any kind of reality, fictional or otherwise, no sense of place people could live in. It's almost like Wolfenstein 3d with cool art deco assets.

      Anyone here played Inscryption? At first, I was like "no, I am not going to play a stupid card game", but this game is so much more than that. It is so meta, full of 4th wall breaks, and feels so damn spooky and weird because of it. Absolutely recommended, if you can stand the visuals. I recommend not reading up too much on it, as that could easily spoil half the incredible surprises. Just know that what you see in the beginning is by far not everything.

      Tried to make a tdm advertisement commentpost at one of civvie11 youtube videos about T2. Post got marked as spam. His problem (to not discover TDM for himself),..not my problem.
      But some help of some fellow TDM yt-videocomment posters would be nice. To ask him and others, to play TDM. To get more players/creators.

      Currently Profile Information has 3 fields, these are shown in forum posts under your avatar:
      1. Gender
      2. Location
      3. Interests
      I think that it could be useful to have an extra field called "Operating system" (under location). It can be useful for tech support and to see what people use.
      Alternatively it could be a more general term, like PC system, so that you can for example state that you use an AMD gpu.
