Missing objectives, briefing and shop


Recommended Posts

Problem: When my friend tries to test my map, it doesn't show objectives, briefing or shop, at mission start.


It works 100% on my computer, and I've checked the files from the .rar I sent him. They are all put in the correct folders.


He's tried uninstalling and re-installing the mission, but to no luck.


I'm baffled. Does anyone have any idea, as to what's causing this bug?

did you rename the rar to a pk4 file or is your friend just unpacking the file to their doom 3 directory, cos pk4's need to be save as a zip then the extension changed to pk4, rar's dont work. if you got something like winrar then it can save files as zip fles.

In addition to that, is he loading your map with the 'map' command (since he has no .pk4 to load the mission the normal way)? If a mission is loaded by the map command, from the darkmod/maps/ directory, it will skip loading the shop, briefing, and player tools (if player tools are assigned by shop).

The map is being started from the 'New Game' menu.


I think Stumpy might be on to the solution though, as I used winrar.


I'll have him try it out later, thanks :)


Edit: Yep that was the problem indeed, worked out and got some good results.

      Be honest: Who of you have actually finished Cuphead? This game is freaking tough! It might even be harder than Sekiro. Dark Souls is a joke in comparison to Cuphead! :-D

      Please, can we finally group the missions by year in the game menu?

      I vaguely recall someone recently complained about two-sided materials (curtains?) not getting lighting from both sides
      I just found a piece of code that's supposed to do just that
      Where was that discussed? (@nbohr1more?)

      I still play classic Doom (albeit with user-made mods and maps rather than the original campaign) on a regular basis. A game from the early 90's which has still got a healthy following in 2022. Pretty amazing.
