head bobbing

Sorry if this is the wrong place to post this topic but I have a problem

If I open the console while playing the dark mod and type,

seta pm_bobroll "0"

seta pm_bobpitch "0"

seta pm_bobup "0"

It disables the head bobbing in the dark mod and feels more like original thief to me .This works great .

My problem is I just cant get it to work in the dark mods cfg file , so I dont have to open the console every time I play.Ive tried creating autoexec.cfg files as is suggested in the darkmod wiki but still cant get it to work .

Any step by step help would be appreiciated. Cheers.

In addition to populating the autocommands.cfg with the values you listed, I also had to bind it to a key to get it to load. My Darkmod.cfg has this:

 

bind "F11" "exec autocommands.cfg"

 

You should be able to choose a different keybind if you want. I have to press this every time I load a save. Not a big deal, but something to keep in mind.

You shouldn't need to load autocommands.cfg, its content is executed after the main menu loads. You can see that in the console messages. But if you need to bind that commands to keys, you don't have to reload the whole file, you can just have something like: bind "F1" "pm_bobroll 0"

Yes, I've seen that stated before. Nevertheless, the head bobbing is ever-present until I press F11. In all likelihood, this is something on my end. User error, misunderstanding, or other such mistakes are totally plausible. Whatever the case may be, it's working well enough.

      I vaguely recall someone recently complained about two-sided materials (curtains?) not getting lighting from both sides
      I just found a piece of code that's supposed to do just that
      Where was that discussed? (@nbohr1more?)

      I still play classic Doom (albeit with user-made mods and maps rather than the original campaign) on a regular basis. A game from the early 90's which has still got a healthy following in 2022. Pretty amazing.

      I'm beginning to understand why people who aren't into social clubbing "don't last long" on this project, and why it's so full of holes. When moderators are siding with bullies, by closing down threads that they derail, then I start to wonder if I should support the platform to begin with.
      I'm sure that the core development is solid, but when you're constantly tone policed and bullied, and moderators are playing into it too, then the project will just drive away talent, and replace it with socialites instead. ...and without talent, you only end up with a small skeleton crew trying to do everything themselves.
      ...so Dragofer and Airship Ballet, and all you other socialites, you win. From now on I'll just keep to myself. You'll never be able to do my work, but at least you'll be happy together, and that's what matters to you.
       
      Update
      Actually, I have to revise my statement:
      I actually messaged greebo - the top dog, I gather - about nbohr1more's outburst of insanity below, and since I haven't even heard back from him, I just have to assume that there's not a single core programmer here, who's not backing nbohr's threats. ...and that's bad.
      ...so if you're a newbie reading this, or an honest soul like ZergRush, then just slowly back out of these forums, run, and don't look back. This is nothing more than a cult posing as a game development project, using Thief and IDTech4 to sucker hopefuls in, to do work for them, while trying to cajole them into something going on behind the scenes, which apparently - according to nbohr - is something that should be hidden from the state. These people aren't programmers - they don't even understand things like how to fix the simplest bugs. All they have, is an engine, and an IP, and some sort of fascist social cult. There was some other project I saw being made in the Unreal Engine. Try joining that project. ...or start a project of your own. Anything but this asylum.
      Hopefully that was "divisive" enough for a final post, because at this point I really want people to leave this place. This project is, on a management level, just awful garbage, run by garbage people, apparently from the top down, and I'm just glad that they have a garbage place to stay, together, and hopefully forever.
