Crashing on boot.

Having issues with TDM on a Windows 7 x64 machine with the Steam version of Doom 3. Doom 3 itself runs absolutely fine. TDMupdater runs and says I am up to date. TDMLauncher detects the correct version.

 

I have turned off the Radeon AI, I have checked patch versions, I have deleted gamex86.dll and verified Doom 3 through Steam for a redownload.

 

I cannot find any other issues. Here is the TDMLauncher.log

 

 

Path to tdmlauncher is C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\doom 3\darkmod\tdmlauncher.exe

Darkmod directory is C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\doom 3\darkmod\

Darkmod directory after normalisation is C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\doom 3\darkmod

Trying default value for engine executable: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\doom 3\DOOM3.exe

Found engine executable in C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\doom 3\DOOM3.exe

Engine path after normalisation is C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\doom 3\DOOM3.exe

Could not find 'currentfm.txt' file in C:/Program Files (x86)/Steam/steamapps/common/doom 3/darkmod/currentfm.txt

Current FM is:

Detected Steam version of D3; Steam executable found at C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\..\steam.exe

Using the following argument vector:

#0: -applaunch

#1: 9050

#2: +set

#3: fs_game

#4: darkmod

Starting process C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\..\steam.exe -applaunch 9050 +set fs_game darkmod

Closing logfile.

 

Based on that log, I created a currentfm.txt file and put "training_mission" without quotes.

 

But still getting the following error on boot.

Any ideas anyone?

Can you search your PC for any copy of the file 'gamex86.dll', delete all of them. Both Doom and TDM will unpack their own copies of this file if needed, however if one already exists in its place (i.e in some cases TDM will use the vanilla Doom3 one), then it'll crash. Sadly there's no better reporting of the issue atm.

 

Let us know what happens, might not be the fix, but well worth a shot.

      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.
