Update the updater for linux seems broken!

When I run "tdm_update.linux" the first thing it does is make sure it's up to date, which is fine except two things:

 

1. When it relaunches itself, it breaks the connection to the terminal screen so no amount of "^C^C^C^C^C" will stop it.

2. It changes directories somehow because it tries to download the whole mod again in ~/.doom3/darkmod/darkmod.

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks,

Richard

You probably have a very old updater version, these had problems with updating itself. Have you tried to download a recent version from here:

 

http://www.bloodgate...pdate_linux.zip

 

unzip and replace the one you have and then start it again.

 

About the console: Oh, yeah, that bugged me, too. We are short on developers, but you could still create a bug report for it: http://bugs.angua.at/my_view_page.php

 

Edit: I forgot: If you have the directory .~/doom3/darkmod/darkmod and place the updater into .~/doom3/darkmod/, it probably will change one level down (because darkmod/ exists). So delete that directory and try with the newest updater again. That behaviour could be improved, too.

Yup, downloaded that twice. I think the problem is it picks the wrong directory right off the bat so when it doesn't see tdm_update.linux it goes ahead and downloads it again every time.

 

The only fix I've found so far is "tdm_update.linux --target /home/richard/.doom3/darkmod" and it says everything is up to date.

 

I've been good about "rm -rf darkmod" out of ~/.doom3/darkmod/ so I don't think that's the problem...

 

Thanks,

Richard

Have you placed tdm_update.linux in "~/.doom3/" or in "~/.doom3/darkmod/"? In the latter case I think it again creates "darkmod", changes there and starts again? That's strange as it seems to work for everyone else.

      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.
