Settings not saving and missions not changing?


Recommended Posts

I just downloaded the mod via torrent, the source was from Pirate Bay. When I try to change any of the settings and restart the game for the settings to change it simply reverts back to the old saved settings. I decided to not worry about it and play the mod, so I chose a mission and the mod restarted back to the default mission.


It seems as if nothing is being saved??? The mod was downloaded into the "Download" folder which is where I am running it from.


What should I do?

It sounds like darkmod can't save any files to your hard drive. That would explain the symptoms, and it's what Springheel was asking about. If it's still in a .zip file, unzip it to a new folder somewhere. More likely, the folder you have it in might be write-protected (meaning, nothing is allowed to save files in it). To check whether that's the problem, right-click on the folder you have darkmod in, and choose "properties" from the bottom of the list. Then find the "Read-only" checkbox. You want that to be completely unchecked, so remove any tick or square from the box and click OK. Then see if that fixes TDM.

Alternatively, try moving the dark mod folder to somewhere else, like c:\games if you've got one.

      Say, I know it's been a while since the site got overhauled from the crash. But did we ever figure out if/how to get the recent topics & replies list back? It's not a total deal breaker but it was nice for becoming a thread creeper again...

      Some of you who've been on the TDM discord know I was out of work last Winter, just putting in hrs for the developer portfolio. Currently I've been working a seasonal job to pay the bills and now I'm finally in my last week before I get bumped off. Things will be tight but I'm planning a long off period to make as much content as I can. Big plans in Unreal Engine as well as my most ambitious TDM collab yet! Never been so excited to be a stuck at home to pursue my life's work. With a lotta time and maybe some luck, I'm hoping to get enough art work done that I may start applying around to studios.

      I finally got around to play Prey and I truly loved it. It is an incredible homage to System Shock and Deus Ex. While the gameplay is not en par with those two titles, the game makes up for that with its well written lore and story. The whole "world" just feells so authentic and it features a ton of really god environmental story-telling. Recommended for every immersive sim fan, i.e., everyone on this forum.
