DarkRadiant 2.0.3 pre-release Build


Recommended Posts

A new pre-release build is up for download in the first post (2.0.3pre5).

 

If anybody is experiencing crashes, please record a dump file and upload it somewhere for me to download. Record the dump file while the "DarkRadiant.exe has stopped working" popup is still visible, switch to Task Manager, go to the tab showing the processes, right-click DarkRadiant.exe and select Create dump file. Compress it before uploading, it can end up quite large.

Tried to unpack the portable x64/x86 versions and the following files come up as corrupt, and tried to download the x86 portable version and it won't download.

Yes, got the same now. I seem to have trouble uploading stuff to dramthethief.com, I re-uploaded it three times already. I cannot connect to ftp.thedarkod.com from here since I'm behind a proxy.

First CTD of the day -

 

- mega

 

Thanks for the dump, I could open it but I can merely see that the application crashed after you hit the ESC key. Any chance you remember what kind of operation you were doing at the point it crashed?

TBH I cant, I was possibly pressing escape to delesect something. I will have to keep an eye on it and see if I can remember to remember what I'm doing when it does it :laugh:

I had this issue with 2.0.2 and with 2.0.3:

 

 

I get this weird texture shimmering until I remove good chunk of decimals as depicted on the video (why is there so many numbers after decimal point anyway?). The texture is 4k x 4k.

 

Another issue (which probably just a feature of DR) is that I can't use Surface Inspector to adjust values manually (not using arrows in the Inspector's window) when several brush faces are selected.

Whats with the insane scale sizes..? I would take an educated guess and say no TDM mapper uses anything higher than 0.5.

 

Why not? It's a large surface and I needed to scale up this baby to look in a way it doesn't hurt my eyes :) (the texture isn't tileable, so...)

Possible bug in this version, any selected brushes gets duplicated when autosave kicks in, as if spacebar was pressed.

should this issue go on the bug tracker.

if you use 'load in textures view' from media browser, you cant see the new shaders in the texture browser until you click 'hide unused', then clicking it again.


greebo was working on this as part of another improvement that's in the works.

Thanks greebo for your work.

 

First i'm must say i tested this on Doom 3 not DarkMod so take this with a grain of salt, on the model preview, navigation was choppy, on Normal DR 3D window you click on the arrow and it glides smoothly, on the model viewer i add to constantly press and release the button for the camera to move, ( imo a orbital type of camera with the view center on the model could be better for this not a fly camera) second right now when you click on the lighting preview, on the model viewer, everything gets black, i'm sure thats because you made it so it shows lights that come with the model but when a model has no light then is just black, imo this mode should have a default 3 point light system, that you can enable/disable if needed, that way you can inspect the normal maps and other effects even on objects with no light.

Wrote about this on the 2.0.2 release sticky. Got Vivid Ubuntu installed, libboost 1.54 is deprecated, so can't build from source or install from the .deb packages.

      I want to be a fish, but I'm not a fish. My mom wants to be a fish too, and so she's killing herself eating plankton and sh***ng blood, and tells me to stop nagging her about taking her medication. I spent several hours today, just lying in bed, having anxiety over just existing, and not being a fish. You fish, you don't know how lucky you are. You can eat all the plankton you want. I tried eating plankton again yesterday, and I just got sick. I hate being a shark.

      I just gave myself vertigo. A pleasant kind of vertigo, like the world has been lifted off my shoulders. I'll explain:
      Yesterday I saw to my dismay, that I had made my entire map two - two - units too short on every level - that every set01 piece was sticking 2 units into the ceiling. That's basically 402 brushes that needs to be realigned (minus the ground floor brushes).
      I knew enough about selections to do all of that in a very tense five minutes, and it compiled without leaks. (Thank you so much, Dark Radiant devs, for making an editor with such care for precision that you can align hundreds of brushes perfectly at once (which is not something I can say for Valve's Hammer editor, which has some serious issues on that front, which actually made me just quit it in disgust).) However, the result is that the entire level has now been stretched a barely noticable 2 units, and it will take some getting used to psychologically.

      My workflow is basically running from a chain of disasters, eventually trying to seek shelter in former disasters. It's not ideal - it's just my life.
      When I abandoned my first map, it was out of a typical mental breakdown, and so I returned to find a skybox void where the kitchen door should have been (due to a misplaced visportal) and two overlapping brushes Z-fighting on the kitchen floor.
      I've now cleaned up the last bit of mess, by cleanly separating every floor into its own layer. Now I can finally work on each floor in peace.
      ...not that I really needed to. Once you get skilled enough, the orthographic messes, well, I'll let this video speak for itself:

      Beams, beams, beams...
      Support beams, and cross beams, and then beams to fixate the support beams to the cross beams. The more beams you have in a map, the better. There's walls, floors and ceilings, but the rest of the map is pretty much just beams. Beams makes a thief happy.
