Does anyone else here play DarkMod with a GTX 980?

This fix is TDM specific unless you use a light-gem render in your game too.

We simply excluded particles from our light-gem pass.

 

TDM does have distance checking for particles so that's something beyond native Doom 3.

 

There are plans to optimize this further using GPU oriented approaches.

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

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

Nah, I don't have light-gem in my game.I thought you moved something on GPU (particles or something else). Since SteveL suggested to moved something on GPU, I began to wonder how you made rain. Cos if it's particles, moving particles to GPU isn't trivial task. And if you made rain with some other technique, not with particles, I would like to know how it's implemented :)

I run tdm on 2 gtx 980's in sli and I had pretty poor performance for a while running on win 10 tp. Not only tdm but other games aswell were fluctuating in performance way beyond what I expected and the system specs are in my sig.
After a while I ran into some older thread which led me to a newer one about a monitor timming thing used for power saving or something. From memory it was 15.6ns or something by default and is a global setting that needs to be reset to default after an app changes it.

I read about it on many forums and write ups which led me to try msi kombuster burn in and benchmark app. I ran it once. Now I just start it in the back ground if a game plays up and it worked. Its only like 18meg download so try it let us know if it works.
Do a google search for msi kombuster.

      Tried to make a tdm advertisement commentpost at one of civvie11 youtube videos about T2. Post got marked as spam. His problem (to not discover TDM for himself),..not my problem.
      But some help of some fellow TDM yt-videocomment posters would be nice. To ask him and others, to play TDM. To get more players/creators.

      Currently Profile Information has 3 fields, these are shown in forum posts under your avatar:
      1. Gender
      2. Location
      3. Interests
      I think that it could be useful to have an extra field called "Operating system" (under location). It can be useful for tech support and to see what people use.
      Alternatively it could be a more general term, like PC system, so that you can for example state that you use an AMD gpu.

      Just found out piped.kavin.rocks has a build-in audio-only for video's (great for music video's). Never thought something like this (including browser extensions) excisted. This would have saved me a lot of money on vacation, where I was camping without wifi.
