I can only see half a screen... (resolved)

Mr Lemony Fresh

Recommended Posts

There's a mod that tries to imitate dues ex and system shock game-play called Wrathchild.

I'd really like to give it a try but every time I start, I can only see half the screen. I tried playing around with some of the cfg options, eg aspect ration, screen resolution etc and got no where. Then I tried matching my current resolution with a perfect match (1680 by 1050) And no i can only see roughly the bottom half of the screen :(


As far as I know, the mod uses Denton's mod to look better. I tried playing denton's mod separately and found that i got the same screen problem, so i removed the denton's mod pk4 from the Wrath child directory and the only change I got was that it loaded faster.


Has anyone ever heard of such a problem? I contacted the guy on his site and didn't get a reply. I guess one of you might more more likely to have played with Denton's mod and not Wrathchild.

I had this problem last time I tried the mod from updating directly from SVN. Your screen is full, but it's as if the camera lens is set to the right of the screen - so like, to aim at anything, it has to be flush with the right of the screen, if that makes sense.


I've yet to purge the darkmod folder and resynch from SVN though.

Thanks for replying.


My specs are thus:


-Windows 7 pro


-Sapphire 5850


-Screen = 1680 by 1050


This is the Doomconfig.cfg file in the Wrathchild directory

@Domarius The guy said in a topic where he posted all of his files that you had to install version 1.01 then install a 1.02 patch, so if that's what you mean by (SVN) sub version I still wouldn't know what to do :D Not anything to do with 'purge'ing and 'resynch'ing at any rate... sorry for my limited knowledge :)

I don't see a bloom cvar but I know that Denton's mod has been known to cause this type of trouble due to Bloom.


You could try: r_bloom "0" or r_bloom "3"


You could also drop in an updated HDR pk4 from the HDR thread at Doom3world...



Please visit TDM's IndieDB site and help promote the mod:




(Yeah, shameless promotion... but traffic is traffic folks...)

      Spent most of the day learning and writing about AI navigation. It's stuff I already know, but the magic about writing something down as clearly formulated as possible, is that you then see things that much more clearly. You also find what's unclear to you, and then you figure out exactly how things work. I was hoping to get through it all within just a day, but it looks like this will take tomorrow as well, at this rate. There's also plenty of other nonsense I have to get through as well. Everything's a chore.

      I want to be a fish, but I'm not a fish. My mom wants to be a fish too, and so she's killing herself eating plankton and sh***ng blood, and tells me to stop nagging her about taking her medication. I spent several hours today, just lying in bed, having anxiety over just existing, and not being a fish. You fish, you don't know how lucky you are. You can eat all the plankton you want. I tried eating plankton again yesterday, and I just got sick. I hate being a shark.

      I just gave myself vertigo. A pleasant kind of vertigo, like the world has been lifted off my shoulders. I'll explain:
      Yesterday I saw to my dismay, that I had made my entire map two - two - units too short on every level - that every set01 piece was sticking 2 units into the ceiling. That's basically 402 brushes that needs to be realigned (minus the ground floor brushes).
      I knew enough about selections to do all of that in a very tense five minutes, and it compiled without leaks. (Thank you so much, Dark Radiant devs, for making an editor with such care for precision that you can align hundreds of brushes perfectly at once (which is not something I can say for Valve's Hammer editor, which has some serious issues on that front, which actually made me just quit it in disgust).) However, the result is that the entire level has now been stretched a barely noticable 2 units, and it will take some getting used to psychologically.

      My workflow is basically running from a chain of disasters, eventually trying to seek shelter in former disasters. It's not ideal - it's just my life.
      When I abandoned my first map, it was out of a typical mental breakdown, and so I returned to find a skybox void where the kitchen door should have been (due to a misplaced visportal) and two overlapping brushes Z-fighting on the kitchen floor.
      I've now cleaned up the last bit of mess, by cleanly separating every floor into its own layer. Now I can finally work on each floor in peace.
      ...not that I really needed to. Once you get skilled enough, the orthographic messes, well, I'll let this video speak for itself:

      Beams, beams, beams...
      Support beams, and cross beams, and then beams to fixate the support beams to the cross beams. The more beams you have in a map, the better. There's walls, floors and ceilings, but the rest of the map is pretty much just beams. Beams makes a thief happy.
