Dead mirror?


Recommended Posts

I tried to run tdm_updater, but saw this:




Nothing seems to be progressing and the update seems to get stuck until the installer chooses a new one.

These "yourvserver" mirros seem to work very poorly... Should they be removed from the mirrors file? The updater seems to really prefer this mirror, and each file takes a long time while I need to wait for the mirror timeout. This could lure away new players as the updater seems to hang.

Try to delete the old updater and download it again from www.thedarkmod.com

"I really perceive that vanity about which most men merely prate — the vanity of the human or temporal life. I live continually in a reverie of the future. I have no faith in human perfectibility. I think that human exertion will have no appreciable effect upon humanity. Man is now only more active — not more happy — nor more wise, than he was 6000 years ago. The result will never vary — and to suppose that it will, is to suppose that the foregone man has lived in vain — that the foregone time is but the rudiment of the future — that the myriads who have perished have not been upon equal footing with ourselves — nor are we with our posterity. I cannot agree to lose sight of man the individual, in man the mass."...

- 2 July 1844 letter to James Russell Lowell from Edgar Allan Poe.

No, that doesn't help.

As i posted in my status update on 8 august, to get an quick reaction.
Instead of creating a topic.

Could somebody take a look at tdm-downloadmirror yourvserver.net?
its down, and the updater chooses this mirror always first.
But If you wait some seconds, the updater chooses another mirror.
But the updater stucks at updating and this is very annoying

The only reaction from other tdmforummembers was from AluminumHaste that he noticed last night this also.
But I didn't got any other reactions or internal solutions.
So i hope that with this topic, the team notice this problem and solve this internally
Two Work-arounds are

  • to comment the lines for yourvserver.net in tdm_mirrors.txt and set in the updater, so the updater doesnt search for other mirrors.
  • Or to change the weight value of that mirror in in tdm_mirrors.txt.

But the real sollution is really on the side of the team:

  • Notice the admin of that server, to solve this.
  • Or by changing the tdm_mirrors.txt:
    Comment out the lines of yourvserver.net
    or change the weight of that mirror.

      Has anyone had any luck with textures from Polyhaven? Their OpenEXR normal maps seem too washed out and give incorrect shading in the engine.

      I tried to upscale the TDM logo video. First try:

      briefing_video.mp4 You can test it ingame by making a copy of the core tdm_gui.mtr and place it in your-tdm-root/materials/ , then edit line 249 of that file into the location where you placed the new briefing.mp4 file.
      What I did was I extracted all the image files, then used Upscayl to upscale the images using General photo (Real-Esrgan) upscale setting and then turn it back into a video.
      I might have to crop it a bit, the logo looks smaller on screen (or maybe it's actually better this way?). My video editor turned it into a 16:9 video, which I think overal looks better than 1:1 video of original.

      Finally got round to publishing a tutorial on baking normal maps in Blender, since most of the ones we have are inaccessible or years out of date.
