Experimental TDM 2.01 for mac available

Recommended Posts

I'm releasing my all-in-one experimental TDM 2.01 for the mac today. You'll need a ready-to-go "darkmod" folder and my app and then you should be good to go. Please read the notes below.

 

TheDarkMod.zip

 

Right click the downloaded app and select "Show package contents". Drag your darkmod folder into Contents/Resources, like the attached picture.

After that, just close that window and double click.

 

Notes, notes, and more notes:

 

It doesn't do full screen. If you set full screen and restart it won't work anymore. You can manually reset it but I don't remember at the moment how to do that.

 

It will modify the app bundle itself as you download missions and save games. I've since decided this was a bad idea and my next version won't do that.

 

Source code is here:

 

https://bitbucket.org/chairface/thedarkmod

 

I made more changes to the portable code than was necessary so I don't think folding my changes back into the build is a good idea.

 

I needed to rebuild the boost libraries so I pulled down boost and did so. Unfortunately, I pulled down 1.55; TDM is based on 1.51. 1.55 doesn't build right with clang so I had to hand patch it. Long story short, my next attempt is based on 1.51 and is less crazy. Also, you probably won't be able to build my code as you'll need the patched boost.

I get this when I open this forum page I'm posting on now, with your link on it... so open at your own risk.

Redface can you run it from the command line and see what it spits out? It's targeted for 10.7 or later, x86 only, 32 bit but I don't think 10.8 even runs on PPCs so that's probably not the problem.

 

cd into the TheDarkMod.app/Contents/MacOS and just run ./TheDarkMod.

 

If you are worried about viruses (always wise), the md5 for the zip file is:

 

MD5 (TheDarkMod.zip) = d2b2aaec0be6bd8eed9548ad7e0877d5

 

I checked my local zip and the one on the server and they match.

 

I did just run it through VirusBarrier Express and it didn't find any problems so I don't think I'm infected with anything.

Same result. Seems to be a problem with OpenGL. Never had this problem before with version 2.00 for OSX.

Thanks for the build, FezMonkey.

 

But is it easier for beginners, to link the app to the darkmod folder in the standard library folder

(like ~/Library/Application Support/darkmod)?

So its easier for the developers to distribute the mod. (smaller in size)

 

And in the future, easier for a beginner to install the game? (like installing the game with a graphical installer, run the updater and then your binary from the applications folder)

Hi Freyk.

 

I don't like having the app data in ~/Library/Application Support as it violates the notion that you can just throw the app away and get all the space back. Obviously, having it in the app bundle is subpar since the darkmod folder is modified as you save games and load new mods. Like I said, it's an experimental build. If I ever get around to finishing the next build, it'll ask you at startup where your darkmod folder is so you can place it anywhere you like.

 

In the mean time, you could probably create a soft link from app bundle to your ~/Library darkmod folder and that should work fine. An alias won't work but a soft link should.

 

FezMonkey.

      While I did find Springheel's brushwork pretty questionable, I guess engine performance must also have come a long way during the recent five years, because I can safely say that the kind of performance issues that he's talking about in this video, just didn't happen to me when I fully opened up my basement with all its unoptimized brushwork. The framerate was capped at a nice 60 FPS no matter how I tried, and with visportals on top of this, and the complexities turned into "func_static":s, an uncapped framerate would just be obscene, at least for graphics cards only a few years old. I no longer have any worries about large areas and vistas - I'll just go nuts. It's gonna be fine.

      I did it! I finally did it! After 48 hours of frustration and confusion, I managed to finally sort out how to attach equipment to NPC:s properly, and write down coherent instructions on how to do it, both in my manual, and in this forum.
      I can finally rest. I can finally eat breakfast.

      Spent most of the day learning and writing about AI navigation. It's stuff I already know, but the magic about writing something down as clearly formulated as possible, is that you then see things that much more clearly. You also find what's unclear to you, and then you figure out exactly how things work. I was hoping to get through it all within just a day, but it looks like this will take tomorrow as well, at this rate. There's also plenty of other nonsense I have to get through as well. Everything's a chore.
