Also.. what the fuck are they doing? they keep putting up this contest then pulling it down.. and all the details surrounding it are ambiguous.. Whoever handles marketing at EM should be fired because they constantly keep making mistakes (not just with this either)

They want users to create mods/levels with TDM editor? Will we be able to reap benefits from this to add cool stuff to TDM or will Square Enix own the mods? If people make missions, will TDM be able to host them so all can enjoy or will they be SE property? I hope that all quality work for this contest can be implemented to help expand TDM!

Good publicity.

I guess it's all too late in the day seeing as the comp is teetering on the edge of another announcement... But if TDM could infulence the competition to open it to entrants outside the US and folk under the age of 18 it'd be nice. Thief 4 might be 18 rated, but traditionally Thief has been 12+ hasn't it?

First two Thief games were rated mature. I can't remember TDS's rating.

 

Edit:

 

TDS is mature.

 

ESRB Mature is 17+ in USA.

 

I see TDS was rated 12+ for a foreign release. Perhaps the ratings are different depending on region.

Thats the point. Why should SQeenix be interested in giving a free project a good publicity? Or let TDM expand more ?

I suspect there are connections from TDM to SE. This never has been made possible without asking somebody from TDM or vice versa.

And I dunno if it is a clever marketing-strategy from SE to use a free mod (editor) which is the moral "Thief" authority for

years. What would be the benefit of this? What will be the benefits for TDM? mmmhhhhh.......

 

hopefully SE is not up to bury the TDM, because a good mod like this is like a nail in their coffin.

TDm will remain . Thief4 will be forgotten at the end of 2014 when everybody can get it for peanuts as GOTY-edition from the "software-pyramid"

Looks like they accept a video of a mission for an entry, nothing about of how complete this mission is or what?

What excuse do we have not to sculpt, and sculpt, and sculpt, until the job is done?

This all makes no sense. If my english would be good enough, I would call them immediately and ask them if this is some hoax, joke or something like that.

And if not, if they are smoking a huge amount of astro turf.

 

No benefit for TDM, no usage for modding / making advertise for Square Eenix B)

I guess the proposition is that TDM gets some fresh interest and Eidos get to be seen playing nice with the traditional Thief community.

 

--edit--

oh, that and given that it's confirmed that Theif 4 won't have mission editing tools and that there's a strong modding community maybe it's a nice gesture to at least do something for those of us who play or make fan missions - even if it's a small thing that isn't an editor.

It's clearly not a hoax. As Spring said in another thread, it is being looked into behind the scenes. That's all that can be said for now.

 

I wonder what might be still 'going on behind the scenes', keeping in mind that the contest officially started already on february 17 ?

:wacko:

      Bumped into an interesting piece of wisdom called Hyrum's Law:
      With a sufficient number of users of an API, it does not matter what you promise in the contract: all observable behaviors of your system will be depended on by somebody.

      I love playing The Dark Mod when it's cold in my place. Bonus points when it's a bit (or even very) dark and it's raining, too.

      I've been having stutters in Vulkan, apparently it's Nvidia Drivers' fault, so I reverted to 512 according to this: https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/forums/geforce-graphics-cards/5/505679/regular-microstutter-in-vulkan-applications-after-/?topicPage=40

      And no, that did NOT fix it. What's going on? My GPU is an RTX 2070, by the way.

      I just figured out how to make subtitles work in TDM (srt) for ingame cutscenes and how to automatically generate the srt file in Kdenlive's speech recognition (I just had to edit it a bit).
      Kdenlive is a free and open source multiplatform pretty advanced video editor.
      Test case is the first builder gost scene in Requiem saying:
      1 00:00:00,180 --> 00:00:02,140 the builder be with you this night 2 00:00:02,600 --> 00:00:04,840 there will be secrets all around you 3 00:00:05,040 --> 00:00:06,439 so have a keen eye The following page gives you the basic info:
      https://wiki.thedarkmod.com/index.php?title=Subtitles
      These 2 tutorials give you the info for creating the srt files:
      If you run into the problem the Kdenlive cannot find your Python PATH, then here is a solution:
      https://www.mail-archive.com/kde-bugs-dist@kde.org/msg672183.html
      Edit: During the installation of Python, in the installer, if you select more options, you can specify to set the PATH. I tried this on another Windows computer and this fixed the issue. Much easier solution.
       
      This is all the code for the testcase:
       
      Maybe I will create a seperate (text,images based) tutorial on the wiki.
