Wow, that's quite a surprise. I was hoping to get my mission rolled out to help out with this beta a bit before release, but you beat me to it! 😆 Congrats to the entire team! Will definitely have to play the final version of this!

The updater runs and shows 2.08 version availiable but after updating and restarting my version is still 2.07. Any ideas?

edit: ok found a new updated "update.exe" file that did the trick.

Now i can not adjust gamma?

edit2: ok gamma works in game but not in start screen

Congratulations to the entire team for a fantastic achievement! I did a small amount of beta testing on this, and I have to say that it was one of the best thieving experiences I've had in years. The geometry/geography is amazing, the story and gameplay flow is excellent. Brilliant stuff.

Help needed, please! Whenever I try to load the mission, it crashes to desktop. Dark mod is 2.08, and the intro plays perfectly, but when I click ‘start’ the ‘creating the world’ bar only progresses about a quarter of the way, then crashes to desktop. I tried playing other fms and they still work okay. Any suggestions? Thank you!

Are you using the 64-bit executable?

Please post your Darkmod.cfg

I can’t open the cfg file to post it. My Alienware computer is 64 bit. The dark mod screen reads version TDM 2.08/32

There should be a "TheDarkModx64.exe" file in your darkmod directory too.

Hello, I have same crash as Hotlyx, crashing when progress bar is at 25%.

I can't use TheDarkModx64.exe because my OS is Win7 32bits.

Here's logfile+darkmod.cfg

qconsole.logdarkmod.cfg

 

I've also generated a dumpfile but size is 65Mo. Tell me if I should post it.

Thanks for all the congratulatory messages!

@Apiai a new direct download link has been added to the bottom of the release post to a version that should run on the 32-bit client. One or the other fairly expensive area has been removed from that version, but otherwise it should be identical. Please let us know if it works.

This larger-than-life :D fm makes me think about some things:

1) to remaster/rework to these new high quality standards another "community-wide effort" as a flagship FM for TDM: "Crucible of Omens: Behind Closed Doors"  (you know, the ghosts of the lost campaigns return chasing the taffers! 😛 )

1.1) to "join" other campaign fms in one single fm (now it's possibile thanks to TDM technical evolution) when a temporally contiguous setting (read: the same day/night) is properly possible

2) to create a campaign playlist ( https://wiki.thedarkmod.com/index.php?title=Fan_Mission_Series ) directly in the downloader

Congratulations on the release, this is such an amazing mission. The map is top notch - as per Thief series - this map really makes "rooftops are thiefs highway" true.

BTW, in the little torture room, there is a spot where you can fall though the floor/ textures.

Overall i am very impressed, and it would be nice to see this turn into a campaign as the map has so much potential.

It's great, but, I'm almost a bit beat up by the size... especially when you have a bit of OCD like me, and always try to explore everything. Lots of stuff going on vertically, and, I'm 2 or 3 hours in, and haven't even touched the ground yet... a bit overwhelmed, TBH. Would have been material for 2 or 3 maps.

I've already been to 1 or 2 places where I can activate something, but, I have no idea how. Not so good.

      Spent most of the day learning and writing about AI navigation. It's stuff I already know, but the magic about writing something down as clearly formulated as possible, is that you then see things that much more clearly. You also find what's unclear to you, and then you figure out exactly how things work. I was hoping to get through it all within just a day, but it looks like this will take tomorrow as well, at this rate. There's also plenty of other nonsense I have to get through as well. Everything's a chore.

      I want to be a fish, but I'm not a fish. My mom wants to be a fish too, and so she's killing herself eating plankton and sh***ng blood, and tells me to stop nagging her about taking her medication. I spent several hours today, just lying in bed, having anxiety over just existing, and not being a fish. You fish, you don't know how lucky you are. You can eat all the plankton you want. I tried eating plankton again yesterday, and I just got sick. I hate being a shark.

      I just gave myself vertigo. A pleasant kind of vertigo, like the world has been lifted off my shoulders. I'll explain:
      Yesterday I saw to my dismay, that I had made my entire map two - two - units too short on every level - that every set01 piece was sticking 2 units into the ceiling. That's basically 402 brushes that needs to be realigned (minus the ground floor brushes).
      I knew enough about selections to do all of that in a very tense five minutes, and it compiled without leaks. (Thank you so much, Dark Radiant devs, for making an editor with such care for precision that you can align hundreds of brushes perfectly at once (which is not something I can say for Valve's Hammer editor, which has some serious issues on that front, which actually made me just quit it in disgust).) However, the result is that the entire level has now been stretched a barely noticable 2 units, and it will take some getting used to psychologically.

      My workflow is basically running from a chain of disasters, eventually trying to seek shelter in former disasters. It's not ideal - it's just my life.
      When I abandoned my first map, it was out of a typical mental breakdown, and so I returned to find a skybox void where the kitchen door should have been (due to a misplaced visportal) and two overlapping brushes Z-fighting on the kitchen floor.
      I've now cleaned up the last bit of mess, by cleanly separating every floor into its own layer. Now I can finally work on each floor in peace.
      ...not that I really needed to. Once you get skilled enough, the orthographic messes, well, I'll let this video speak for itself:

      Beams, beams, beams...
      Support beams, and cross beams, and then beams to fixate the support beams to the cross beams. The more beams you have in a map, the better. There's walls, floors and ceilings, but the rest of the map is pretty much just beams. Beams makes a thief happy.
