Is the Dark Mod running great on Windows 10?

Working fine for me aswell, but runs a bit faster in Windows 7 on my computer.

 

I'd think that probably has primarily to do with the difference in maufacturers drivers. I remember i had better performance for some tasks in Windows Vista than in Windows 7, even though people always bashed Windows Vista for its sluggishness.

 

Windows 8 and 10 are in general quite a bit more performant than Windows 7.

no, please dont start a OS benchmark here, based on a question from a beginner.

please create another topic or post in the excisting one.

 

cavador, your question is answered.

But how does your system met the TDM hardware requirements?

When your in doubt, just try it. its free in price.

tip:

in your case. to avoid several beginners problems,

use the unofficial installer, instead the updater:

freyk, i'm a bit puzzled over your reply. 1. Noone started a OS benchmark. 2. He wrote he will get a new computer, so, i don't get the question about meeting TDM hardware requirements with his current PC. 3. He also doesn't seem to be a beginner, but someone who already had TDM installed.

 

Only thing he asked is whether TDM will run well on Windows 10, and it does. Case closed really.

I'm actually having weird performance issues on my Windows 10 machine right now. Just upgraded to 2.07, and the Bakery Job is running at about 12 fps when I first load in. By contrast, I get about a solid 60 fps on my Windows 7 machine. This strikes me as especially odd, since my Windows 10 machine, despite being a laptop, is more powerful (16 gigs of RAM in both, with an Nvidia 1060 in the laptop vs a 970 in the desktop). Both setups are exactly the same, with exactly the same settings. Any ideas on what's causing this and how to fix it?

 

[Edit] Just found the issue I think, and it seems to be a case of Windows 10 stupidity. Seems like the OS by default was using the onboard CPU Intel drivers, rather than Nvidia. For anyone else with this problem, go into the Nvidia control panel > Manage 3D Settings > Preferred graphics processor, and switch to "High-performance NVIDIA processor." Now clocking well over 100 fps with uncapped on.

Windows 10 is to blame in many things but in this case is not its fault, that is a know "problem" with TDM engine, I think idtech 4 was made to run on a single GPU and made at a time where people were not using laptops with dual GPU's from totally different vendors, so it does not detect automatically the faster GPU in the system but it should do so in the 2.08 version, based on the road map.

 

In the meantime users with laptops using dual GPU's can chose manually like you discovered.

      Say, I know it's been a while since the site got overhauled from the crash. But did we ever figure out if/how to get the recent topics & replies list back? It's not a total deal breaker but it was nice for becoming a thread creeper again...

      Some of you who've been on the TDM discord know I was out of work last Winter, just putting in hrs for the developer portfolio. Currently I've been working a seasonal job to pay the bills and now I'm finally in my last week before I get bumped off. Things will be tight but I'm planning a long off period to make as much content as I can. Big plans in Unreal Engine as well as my most ambitious TDM collab yet! Never been so excited to be a stuck at home to pursue my life's work. With a lotta time and maybe some luck, I'm hoping to get enough art work done that I may start applying around to studios.

      I finally got around to play Prey and I truly loved it. It is an incredible homage to System Shock and Deus Ex. While the gameplay is not en par with those two titles, the game makes up for that with its well written lore and story. The whole "world" just feells so authentic and it features a ton of really god environmental story-telling. Recommended for every immersive sim fan, i.e., everyone on this forum.
