I can't update my Dark Mod with tdm_update.exe


Recommended Posts

There is a huge dos error message, here is the pic:




This is from my other computer that hasn't been updated in ages, I think it has Dark Mod 1.2


(ignore the wrong directory - I forgot I had a copy of my darkmod folder here - the real one contained within the Doom3 folder gives the exact same error)

Starting from the first TDM updates and until now with the update 1.04 to 1.06 I have the same error with tdm_update.exe. I run it, click "Continue", and get this:


Downloading mirror information... failed, cannot continue.

No mirror information available - cannot continue.

Total bytes downloaded: 0 bytes


Here is TDM update log:

bloodgate.com works for me - is there something blocked on your end? Can you open this link:

      If you find the new Beatles song "Now and Then", which was created with the help of AI, totally boring, then you should better play the mission of the same name by our esteemed mission maker friend joebarnin, because the latter is actually a creative milestone!

      Idea: Thief 3 style missions.
      One of the great features of Thief 3 are missions defided in small segments with loading screens when you move from segment to segment. We all miss those right? I was thinking of mapping only horizontal, so not stacked. When you go up or down (stairs or elevator), you get a 20 seconds fake loading screen where you can play a minigame (The Builder's Blocks?). After that you get teleported to a different area that seems to be on top of the first, but actually isn't in the map file. It's much easier mapping, because you can see everything in one glance from above. This could also give more freedom building, because it doesn't have to fit. Everything is predictable because guards don't move to different sections.
      This could be used for the Thief 3 contest possibly..

      Just found out by accident how to change the tittle of a topic you made. You long-click (2 seconds) on a topic tittle, then you get an edit dialog to change the topic title.
      The other way I know of is to edit the first post.

      I always find it kind of strange that in DR you can't apply spawnargs on specific brushes (I think), but you can apply textures. But those are not listed as spawnargs, so they're difficult to see except if you select the brush and go into the Surface inspector.
      Wouldn't it be easier if DR would list textures for every seperate brush in the entity view?
