Hidden Hands: Vitalic Fever 20/07/2019

This was a good mission. I love mansion missions.

The upper floors were real hard to navigate because of the lights, the guards, and the narrow hallways. Plus, it was kind of hard even getting into the place. Still, overall I liked the mission a lot.

I had a few issues though.

I couldn't see the gold in my inventory at all. When I pressed N for the next item, it showed empty, as if I hadn't pressed it. Because I couldn't see it, I had no idea how much loot I'd gathered, or if I had the gems needed for one of the objectives. Second, was the attic supposed to be pitch black? Couldn't see a thing until I found the lantern in the basement, and then had to backtrack. Just wondering... Not really an issue, just puzzled if my game was broken...

The story's fascinating. I expected zombies because of the nature of the vitalic stuff, but there was just the one. By the way, is there a way to, um, save or free it? End its miserable existence as a captive?

Yes, the pitch black attic was a design decision and there are actually two ways to illuminate it. Apparently, you missed the second possibility, which I did not include deliberately in the first place. :) 

As for the zombie, you should not worry; I looked after him the other day and he is still happy with all the mild vapours that are to increase his body temperature. Although, things might change once the experiments move on! :)

Anyways, thanks for playing and your kind words!

Finished this up last night and enjoyed it for the most part. 

Spoiler

I was a bit lost after going through most of the house except upper floor and not finding a code for the upper door (nor a key to the telescope room lol) I had to come here for some help. My bad I should of looked left when I looked out that window - oops. And I must say, my arachnophobe self took great pleasure in disposing of the spiders in the basement once I got passed freaking out cause my arrows wouldn't kill them. Very clever! lol. One other thing, I wish you had named Gilbert instead of "body". By the time I got to that point I couldn't remember what the person I was looking for looked like lol - again my bad :)

Thanks again for all your hard work and look forward to more.

Wind would refer to the windchimes outside the bar, underneath it on the ground by the post.

Hope that helps. Happy Taffing!

HI!!! 

I don't know is someone has experienced this problem, but whether I'm outside or inside the buildings in this mission, I keep lagging, movements are not flowing. 

I must precise that other missions are running well, except one, but I don't remember which

As proposed in this link, https://wiki.thedarkmod.com/index.php?title=Performance_Tweaks, I've tried to put the priority on high, and the affinity on various cores, but it did not changed, it even get worse while I've tried to put on 1 or 2 cores only.

I've also tried opening the console with "ctrl"+"alt"+"²" (I am on french keyboard), but honestly, I don't get the points with shows FPS and stop time.

 

If anyone has a answer to transmit, I take, and thanks by advance !!

Please post your darkmod.cfg, system specifications, and the results from condump bad_performance.txt from your console. ( the text file should arrive in your darkmod directory )

This mission is pretty heavy on both CPU and GPU resources.

Looking at your hardware configuration, I will estimate that stencil shadows are still probably going to eat

CPU resources first.

The first thing I would try is enabling Frontend Acceleration under the advanced menu ( r_useParallelAddModels "1" ) and setting colors to 32-bit ( r_fboColorBits "32" ).

That will allow your additional cores ( 4 cores ) to do more setup work for those shadow triangles.

Next, try increasing your lightgem interleave:

tdm_lg_interleave 3

tdm_lg_interleave_min 6

If performance is still poor, try switching to "Maps" ( r_shadows "2" ) and try single pass shadow maps after that ( r_shadowMapSinglePass "1" ).

If you still have poor performance, try forcing texture downsize:

image_downSize "1"

image_downSizeLimit "512"

image_downSizeBump "1"

seta image_downSizeBumpLimit "256"

Thank you nbohr1more for your answered

 

Unfortunately I've tried all solutions you mentionned above, but the mission keep lagging

 

In attached files, I show you the darkmod.cfg I've modified and also what I missed before, my advanced settings and general ones, though I guess it is on the .cfg

HI @nbohr1more , thank you for having answered me once more. I've tried it, but it did not changed unfortunately.

@datiswous, where can I check temperature of my cpu ? I would try this stencil shadows option, but I doubt over it, cause it was already like that before

Did you try the latest Crimson Beta ( 2016 ) drivers from this page:

https://www.amd.com/en/support/graphics/amd-radeon-hd/ati-radeon-hd-5000-series/ati-radeon-hd-5670

?

Round two... Try these changes:

seta r_shadowMapCullFront "1"

seta r_shadowMapSize "512"

seta r_useSoftParticles "0"

seta com_maxFPS "70"

Another terrific mission! I thought the mansion was cleverly designed, with puzzles hard enough to make me think but not so hard I had to cheat to solve them.

For me the highlights were

Spoiler

bypassing the top floor vault puzzle by clambering up to the window from outside, and dropping the spideys into a biohazard pit. Very fun!

Had a few problems with unobtainable loot; I had to use noclip to get a brooch from inside a drawer on the ground floor, and the pagan's gemstone that he hid in the freezer in the basement. These were not frobable for me from any sensible position.

      Please, can we finally group the missions by year in the game menu?

      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.
