Lock up after map load (Fedora Linux 18)

Anyone else having problems with loading stalling after loading the map?

 

I never see the "game", it just stalls after the progress bar gets to, or close to, 100%. Switching to a virtual terminal shows that thedarkmod.x86 is maxing out one core.

 

I've tried two different maps to try and make sure it wasn't a map issue...

 

Thanks,

Richard

How long did you let it sit for? Sometimes it takes just as long after the progress bar gets to 100 as it does to get there.

Quite often, for me, the progress bar reaches 100% faster than the wait time afterward for the map to be ready. Not all mappers have done the "Please wait a minute..." type message to display after the progress meter reaches 100%. On some maps this wait can be a full minute, maybe more on less powerful systems.

Hmmm. Try making sure that vertical sync is turned off in your graphics driver settings as well as in-game.

This speeds up the dmap process greatly, so maybe it will help with map load time too...?... I have no idea and am just taking a stab at it.

Yeah, the later part of the map load after the bar has hit the end seems to be inexplicably tied to frame rate. If I have vertical sync on during that I get 1fps and it takes forever. If vertical sync is off I get 3-4fps which isn't fast but still 3-4 times faster than it was.

 

Good call, PranQster!
