Testers Needed for TDM 2.04 Public Beta Period

Recommended Posts

We're looking for a few people interested in beta testing TDM 2.04.

 

The dev team has just wrapped up a private 6 week beta test, and we're ready for new eyes to take a look at 2.04 and test as many existing missions as possible.

 

2.04 is a bug-fix release, with a few new features added. The only assets changed are those needed to support the fixes.

 

If you're interested, please post here and we'll get you the information and access you need to participate.

 

We anticipate a 6 week period of testing before wrapping it all up and beginning the release process.

 

The target release date is July 1st.

 

Linux testers, in particular, would be great, since IIRC most of us work on Windows boxes.

 

Thanks in advance!

ANTR has fallen through a large crack, since 4083 was never marked to be fixed in 2.04.

 

We'll have to work with the author to get it fixed for 2.05.

 

I suppose it should come off the mission list in the interim. @Biker, can you handle that?

First question!

To enable OpenAL support is still needed to set:

 

seta s_useOpenAL "1"
seta s_libOpenAL "soft_oal.dll" (in case of OpenAL Soft, of course)
?

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.

TDM 2.04 is cherry-picked bug fixes from the SVN. The 64-bit branch has not yet been merged so audio behavior should be largely the same

other than the "popping sounds caused by negative mixer values" fix.

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

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

If I have time, I'll try to have a look.

 

One question though: After updating the TDM installation to BETA, will it update normally to 2.04 when it comes out or do I have to redownload TDM then?

      Perhaps an unpopular opinion: TDM team might benefit from someone with actual QA experience; someone with naturally and professionally developed curiosity, who is interested in how and why things work, how they break At least to me it's kind of mind-boggling how untested some rather important features are (first the absence alert feature for items, now the rope +body carry behavior).

      I love playing The Dark Mod when it's cold in my place. Bonus points when it's a bit (or even very) dark and it's raining, too.

      I've been having stutters in Vulkan, apparently it's Nvidia Drivers' fault, so I reverted to 512 according to this: https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/forums/geforce-graphics-cards/5/505679/regular-microstutter-in-vulkan-applications-after-/?topicPage=40

      And no, that did NOT fix it. What's going on? My GPU is an RTX 2070, by the way.
