If you happen to run into a crash, please record a crashdump: How to record a crashdump

 

Changes since 2.0.3 can be seen on the Bugtracker, important stuff includes so far:

 

- Improved rotation code for multi-ent selection (#230), this should make prefab placement a bit easier
- Updated German localization

 

pre2:

- #4282: Fixed a crash when selecting stuff in the map, after the AI Editing Panel has been opened in a previous map

 

pre3:

- #4298: Crash when reloading def files while having a map loaded
- #3570: Multiple func_statics, when rotated, leave origins untouched
- #4305: Cannot set negative speed values in particle editor
- #4294: The AI tab shows visual AND audio acuities ranging from 0->1.00. They should range from 0->100.
- #389: Find and replace textures ignores texture alignment

pre4:

- #3570 again: fixed func_static origin rotation when using the toolbar buttons

- #4295: Animation viewer keeps demanding more memory

 

pre5:

- #4310: Continued scrolling in orthoview
- #4309: Delay redraw when manipulating brushes or patches
- #4308: New brushes have texture at lowest scale
- #4307: Have to double click to select and unselect any item on ortho.

 

pre6:

- #4276: Path connections disappear when one endpoint is not visible

 

pre7:

- Fixed layers being messed up after map loading

- Fixed FreeLook toggle mode being deactivated when selecting objects in camera view

 

pre8:

- Fixed: Rotating brushes flings them around randomly when Rotate Objects independently is on.

- Fixed: Patches + Incorrect Shader Paste operations breaks the 3D viewport

- Fixed: Color-related spawnargs should have three points of decimal precision instead of two

- Changed: Wavefront OBJ exporter is now available via the Scripts menu instead of File...

- Fixed: Moving texture/vert points in texture tool: always moves two grid lines at a time

 

pre9:

- Fixed: ESC terminates freelook mode, it can now be used to deselect stuff again without exiting freelook

- Fixed: Increasing/decreasing camera speed during freelook mode exits freelook

- Fixed more thoroughly: Color-related spawnargs should have three points of decimal precision instead of two

 

pre10:

- Fixed: Pasting Shaders from Patch To Brush Does Not Keep Texture Scale and Alignment

- Add support for loading older Q3 map format

Only a quick prefab test: Improved code for multi-entity rotation seam to work fine. This is a huge help with prefabs.

Thanks greebo!​

 

Will test the stability in my next DR sessions later this month ...

So, how is it for everyone so far?

 

During routine mapping I haven't experienced crashe's so far.

 

One thing I noticed (and most likely it's been there for a long time) is that when creating models, and a model is large, the preview doesn't zoom to fit the model in the window. Is it fixable?

A new build is up, fixing a crash as reported by VanishedOne. It appeared after having the AI Panel open with an Entity selected in one map, after changing to a different map DR will crash when click-selecting any object.

Any crashes in the meantime?

Due to RL I've not been doing that much mapping.

During a DR mini-training session yesterdaywith Spooks I had several CTD's, I believe it was happening when pressing the escape key to deselect an item/items -

 

- mega

 

I should also mention it dosent happen right away, DR has to be open for a while and then it start happening - memory leak..?

OK, got the dumps, but I can't tell what happened. What have you been doing right before it crashed? It was happening 4 times in a row, I gather? The dumps are very small, so you probably didn't have much content loaded, I assume.

 

Also, you've been using the 2.04pre1-build, not the latest one (2.0.4pre2).

  • I press escape to de-select stuff, and I cant imagine I do this anymore than any other mapper. When I created those dump files I was doing a training session via Skype with Spooks showing him how to visportal his map. But I can make DR crash on any map.

Will check version when I get home this afternoon (2hrs from now)

      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.

      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:
