Problems with missions

Hello everyone I hope you are having a good day :).

I wrote this topic to talk about the problems I'm having with some missions: Return to the City, Rightful Property, Sneak and Destroy, Heart of Lone Salvation, St Albans Cathedral.

 

I can read/see the mission objectives, choose the dificulty and load the mission. However, sometimes the game crashes while loading (shows the "program has to shut down" message from Windows). Other times, I can play the missions for a few minutes, but if I save the game, it crashes the same way.

 

I'm running Windows XP SP3, 2.60 GHz Dual Core, 2 GB memory, and an ASUS EAH4350 SILENT/DI/512MD2(LP) graphics card.

Hello Loa4ever,

are you playing a fresh install or did you play The Dark Mod for months / years before without problems?

 

Also which Doom version do you use?

Those are all fairly big taxing missions, but your system specs should be able to handle it. Are there missions that don't cause any problems?

Hi,

 

I've installed The Dark Mod about 3 months ago, and I've got Doom3 v1.3.1 + RoE. And I've always had these issues.

Yes, though I've experienced some random crashes once in a while in certain areas.

Some of these missions need upwards to 2GByte memory themselves, and if you only got 2 Gb and the OS already uses a bit of it, you might simply run out of memory (which can look like a crash).

 

Also, have you run a memory test on your computer? The second stick might be bad, which you normally don't notice, but when something needs a lot of memory, it randomly puts stuff on the faulty place, and depending on how important that bit was, it might either crash, or do nothing.

Not that. The memory that my computer uses to run stuff.

Smashing, as per Tels post I was about to suggest that aswell. And if you can afford it, I would upgrade the gfx card to one with atleast 1Gb of ram

 

nVidia:

GT 430 96cores - $49

9800GT 112 cores - $59

Amd:

HD 6430 160cores - $35

HD 5550 320cores - $55

 

untill TDM 1.08 comes out (this year hopefully), ATi/AMD cards of HD5000 series and above will have the "hard to disable catalyst Ai issue" this is related to the spinning sky in tdm.

      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.
