Yeah, we really need to fix the timedemo feature and release a new benchmark. Then, hopefully, phrononix (etc) will use it and it'll put

pressure on AMD to improve their benchmark results. As long as there's no press about it, this will always be a low priority issue for them.

Please visit TDM's IndieDB site and help promote the mod:

(Yeah, shameless promotion... but traffic is traffic folks...)

Yep, we'd wanna convince tomshardware, anandtech, kitguru, hardocp, or hothardware to add this to their suite.

guru3d too.

Task is not so much to see what no one has yet seen but to think what nobody has yet thought about that which everybody see. - E.S.

No, I'm joking, it's really the same.

 

Ah, try to rename to "Wolf2MP" and you'll have MORE optimization than "DarkAthena" :D

 

GCN+Catalyst performance is really tied to profiling.....

Why not to try Brink, Wolfenstein 2009 MP, Quake 4 MP and see if any of those have even better optimizations ? (since all of those id Tech 4 based)

@Bikerdude: Do you think you can explain to AMD about 13.1 atioglxx.dll performance boost ? (if you can tell them about BFG engine, maybe it will give them better clues, since TDM doesn't have break down on timing for various subsystems)

Im hoping they will have created a new profile for us.

Wolf2MP is the MP exe of Wolfenstein 2009 :D

I'm testing, see before and this one below :D

 

Quake4MP.exe result: Quake4_MP.jpg

 

And the winner is Wolf2MP profile :P

They changed something in the new driver package (15.5).....now TDM performs differently in some areas.

In some areas worse (or maybe I miss something but my system and TDM have the same old settings.....and I deleted the AMD shader cache):

 

15.4 Wolf2MP

15.5 Wolf2MP (29-30 FPS vs 40)

Correct screnshot (With FPS OSD). And obviously the V-Sync is OFF.

      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.

      I'm beginning to understand why people who aren't into social clubbing "don't last long" on this project, and why it's so full of holes. When moderators are siding with bullies, by closing down threads that they derail, then I start to wonder if I should support the platform to begin with.
      I'm sure that the core development is solid, but when you're constantly tone policed and bullied, and moderators are playing into it too, then the project will just drive away talent, and replace it with socialites instead. ...and without talent, you only end up with a small skeleton crew trying to do everything themselves.
      ...so Dragofer and Airship Ballet, and all you other socialites, you win. From now on I'll just keep to myself. You'll never be able to do my work, but at least you'll be happy together, and that's what matters to you.
       
      Update
      Actually, I have to revise my statement:
      I actually messaged greebo - the top dog, I gather - about nbohr1more's outburst of insanity below, and since I haven't even heard back from him, I just have to assume that there's not a single core programmer here, who's not backing nbohr's threats. ...and that's bad.
      ...so if you're a newbie reading this, or an honest soul like ZergRush, then just slowly back out of these forums, run, and don't look back. This is nothing more than a cult posing as a game development project, using Thief and IDTech4 to sucker hopefuls in, to do work for them, while trying to cajole them into something going on behind the scenes, which apparently - according to nbohr - is something that should be hidden from the state. These people aren't programmers - they don't even understand things like how to fix the simplest bugs. All they have, is an engine, and an IP, and some sort of fascist social cult. There was some other project I saw being made in the Unreal Engine. Try joining that project. ...or start a project of your own. Anything but this asylum.
      Hopefully that was "divisive" enough for a final post, because at this point I really want people to leave this place. This project is, on a management level, just awful garbage, run by garbage people, apparently from the top down, and I'm just glad that they have a garbage place to stay, together, and hopefully forever.
