Crashing on boot.


Recommended Posts

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.

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.

      Sometimes life throws a curveball - other times it straight up tries to take you outta the game. Been one thing after another lately but I ain't goin without a fight!

      Did I mention how absolutely grateful I am that TDM didn't get (and can never be) assimilated by a huge company like Microsoft, as is what happened to Minecraft?
