Trouble installing FMs

Every time I try to install a new FM, I get this error:

 


--------- Initializing Game ----------
The Dark Mod 1.00, code revision 3718
Build date: Oct 13 2009
Initializing event system

I can load my existing installed FM just fine. What's going on?

It may be that your last update did not complete. Run tdm_update.exe again and again until you see the message: "All done, your TDM installation is up-to-date. Enjoy!" Let us know if that doesn't solve the problem

 

Nope, still not working.

Seems to indicate you're having trouble updating.

Where is your darkmod folder located?

Uninstall your current FM then close TDM and run the updater.

Try search your doom3 folder for all gamex86.dll's and delete them all then run the updater again

 

(I have a feeling that the updater might need to delete all the dll's between major updates)

Figured it out. It was in the program files folder, so I needed to give tdmlauncher.exe admin privileges to install the FM.

      Bumped into an interesting piece of wisdom called Hyrum's Law:
      With a sufficient number of users of an API, it does not matter what you promise in the contract: all observable behaviors of your system will be depended on by somebody.

      I love playing The Dark Mod when it's cold in my place. Bonus points when it's a bit (or even very) dark and it's raining, too.

      I've been having stutters in Vulkan, apparently it's Nvidia Drivers' fault, so I reverted to 512 according to this: https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/forums/geforce-graphics-cards/5/505679/regular-microstutter-in-vulkan-applications-after-/?topicPage=40

      And no, that did NOT fix it. What's going on? My GPU is an RTX 2070, by the way.

      I just figured out how to make subtitles work in TDM (srt) for ingame cutscenes and how to automatically generate the srt file in Kdenlive's speech recognition (I just had to edit it a bit).
      Kdenlive is a free and open source multiplatform pretty advanced video editor.
      Test case is the first builder gost scene in Requiem saying:
      1 00:00:00,180 --> 00:00:02,140 the builder be with you this night 2 00:00:02,600 --> 00:00:04,840 there will be secrets all around you 3 00:00:05,040 --> 00:00:06,439 so have a keen eye The following page gives you the basic info:
      https://wiki.thedarkmod.com/index.php?title=Subtitles
      These 2 tutorials give you the info for creating the srt files:
      If you run into the problem the Kdenlive cannot find your Python PATH, then here is a solution:
      https://www.mail-archive.com/kde-bugs-dist@kde.org/msg672183.html
      Edit: During the installation of Python, in the installer, if you select more options, you can specify to set the PATH. I tried this on another Windows computer and this fixed the issue. Much easier solution.
       
      This is all the code for the testcase:
       
      Maybe I will create a seperate (text,images based) tutorial on the wiki.
