The image manipulation takes place in the fragment shader gl_overlay.fs and can be tweaked as needed. I haven't found a way to pass arguments via the gui to the material to allow on the fly alterations, so the effect is static.

Very cool for in-game effects or cinematics!

If players just want to play any TDM mission in "Black and White mode", they can set:

r_postprocess_desaturation 1.0

As requested by @Spooks (#5930) I've created a set of modified versions of the graffiti decals added by Necrobob and Bikerdude (Commited with revision #16491)graffiti.thumb.jpg.8769daadc411f316d40658a60fcb8548.jpg

Those materials are placed under textures/darkmod/decals/graffiti and located under darkmod/materials/tdm_decals_graffiti.mtr (new file).

The upper version can be colored using the _color spawnarg if turned into an entity. As using black as a color will make the decals dissapear (it is na additive blend), I've created a black version, too (multiplicative blend). Their names are extended with _black, e.g. the cross most-left is

textures/darkmod/decals/graffiti/allright
textures/darkmod/decals/graffiti/allright_black

###############################

While working on this I've noticed a bug: When turning the decal into a func_static it can happen that it won't get offset anymore, so when placed exactly at a surface it simple isn't visible. As there is no z-fighting I assume that the polygon offset gets screwed up. The occourence of this issue depends on the direction the decal is facing. It works when facing the positive x-,y- or z-direction, but not in the negative one. Is this a known issue?

 

EDIT: I've tried to create a testmap to file a bugtracker entree but wasn't able to reproduce the issue. It occours in the map the above image was taken, however. Guess there is something screwed up with that, dunno. So probably a map and not a TDM bug considering it doesn't seem to have been reported before. (Which is somewhat good news but leaves me confused ... and sooo tired 😕 )

Just some notes on the above video. (Should have added that with the video). What you can see there are some script functions that got added and allow to modify the animation speed on the fly. That was actually a request from 14 years ago :D

string getAnimList(int channel)
prints a list of all available animations on the specified channel to the console

float getAnimRate(int channel, string animName)
returns the current animation speed of the named anim on the specified channel
returns -1 if anim or channel not available
  
float setAnimRate(int channel, string animName, float rate)
sets the animation speed of the named anim on the respective channel to the specified value. 
returns 1 on success, -1 otherwise
negative values are not allowed as they lead to insta-death (why ever)

The channels are ANIMCHANNEL_HEAD, ANIMCHANNEL_TORSO and ANIMCHANNEL_LEGS.

One use-case that came to my mind was an icebomb, that slows down enemies (and creates ice floes when thrown on water - wait, where did I see that 🤔)

Another feature would be some sort of time warp effect that slows down or speed up everything around you (moveables would need a different approach, though) or guards that run slower if they got injured at their legs (which would give broadheads a non-lethal usecase or allow the usage of crow's feet weapons).

It's part of the idActor class. What do you have in mind, weapons?

Those are usually no animations, but movers. There speed can already be altered via script.

Hi, I've been playing around with your halloween sandbox (helloween.pk4) and I wanted to say the lantern looks awesome. I'd love to see this in a horror mission.

lamp.thumb.jpg.6df0b02fa0238c70901f1332b1274b19.jpg

do you know if theres a way to separate it from the sword?

Ive been experimenting with the def files and haven't had much luck.

first thing I did was go into the tdm_player_thief def file and add a new weapon def (there are 12 weapon slots, but TDM only uses 10)

then I duplicated the default tdm_weapon_shortsword def from TDM and renamed it tdm_weapon_lamp. I compared it to your shortsword def and copied some of the references while giving the functions new names. At this point I could start up darkradiant, create this new lamp entity, load the map, pick it up and equip it alongside the sword.

I then tried to repeat this process with your shortsword script file (which the lamp def file is supposed to point to) after including it in tdm_custom_scripts

TDM doesn't like this new script file for some reason. it crashes on start up citing errors in the weapon_lantern::Idle() function

Error: tdm_weapon_lantern.script, line 90: '.' is not a name

I'm stuck. any idea what could be causing this?

@Obsttorte, @RedNoodles and all,

Is this available anywhere, please? Can't find it in this topic.

Sounds pretty neat. Has this ever been used in a mission?

 

Edit: I think it has been used in A house of locked secrets. Just started playing that one.

Would it for example be possible to make a camera view which shows black and white, but the rest of the world is in color? So you could for example make a window that looks out in a black and white world. Or a black and white picture on the wall that actually shows an ingame scene.

Sorry for the late reply. This is the file. It was shared by Dragofer on the discord.

Here's the .pk4 if anyone wants to try it out in a mission and maybe also give feedback. Simply place it in your TDM base install. You can access the lantern by scrolling through your weapons, or bind it to i.e. the p key by pasting this into the console: bind "p" "_impulse11"

The lantern has seen some improvements by myself, Amadeus and Goldwell. If I shared that file on Discord its probably the version that has those improvements.

Oh so this is like a Doom 3 style lantern that you use instead of a weapon?

Yep!

I have completed my clean-up of the handheld lantern, I just don't know what to do with it now 🤨

I think it deserves its own topic.

EDIT - Here:

      Taking a break to alleviate burnout. In retrospect, I probably shouldn't have jumped into a map-making contest so quickly after just finishing another project and especially with my busy schedule, but I do believe I have something that the community will enjoy. No clue if I'll be able to finish it on time for the competition if I factor in a break, but I'd rather take my time and deliver something of quality rather than engage in development crunch or lose part of the map's soul to burnout.

      Happy birthday to me!
      Yes, today's my birthday and as much as I want to play The Dark Mod, I won't until it's late Autumn, where it should be a bit chilly in my place and there's some wind too.
      For now, it's time to enjoy my birthday, if any of you want to play a great fan mission in my honour...Well that's asking too much, just play the mission because it's fun, not because of me, enjoy it yourself! 💪
