Missions have gone invisible and won't load


Recommended Posts

Recently downloaded the dark mod, latest version, I played snowed Inn and the tired to play the painter's wife, it crashed my laptop 3 times trying to run it, so i gave up trying to play it and downloaded some other missions, first I noticed the painters wife wouldn't uninstall and i couldn't install a new mission, so i redownloaded the entire dark mod, to refresh it as i decided the problem with the painters wife caused an issue and this would have been the fastest way to fix it, however, now no missions are displayed not even the training missions that come with the download, and when I download new missions it connects downloads them, they visible in the fan mission files, however nothing in the in game mission menu, however when I click in the blank spaces, the file size comes up, and the option to install the mission, but no name is visible, when the game installs the mission and restarts, its back to the same again, saying no mission is installed and the files are all still invisible. what's going on, this only happened after I tried to play the painters wife. Windows version

Did you install TDM into a privileged location such as "Program Files"?

What happens if you relocate it to C:\darkmod\ ?

Amazing, I made a new folder C:\darkmod2 and dumped the files from C:\darkmod in there, just to see what would happen, now it works again, I don't understand why this was unless somehow some permission got changed somewhere or something, with the original folder, however i know i wont try and play the painters wife again

 thankyou

Regarding The Painter's Wife not loading, it's possible you might've been running the 32-bit version of TDM, thedarkmod.exe, which in most cases isn't capable of loading a mission of that size. It's highly recommended to run the 64-bit version, thedarkmodx64.exe, which is located in the same place as thedarkmod.exe. (From 2.09 onwards TDM will hopefully only ship the 64-bit version.)

That said, a new version of The Painter's Wife is soon going to be released, so I'd suggest waiting for that one to benefit from all the improvements and fixes.
