The installer still creates a new empty folder called "saintlucia". Could someone fix that?

You can delete or ignore it 😁

I suppose you switched to some old version where the mission was called "saintlucia" ?

dev17008-10685 is available.

Speaking of the new parallelization, it would be great to check that the new version does not get slower than the older ones 🤔
The only different there is number of threads used in jobs system. Previously it was always 2 threads, now it is (NumberOfPhysicalCores - 1). However, detection of physical cores number might be buggy --- the numbers are reported near the beginning of game console.

It detected my CPU core count correctly, 12 physical 24 virtual. :)  

Btw just curious but what's the reason, for the cpu core data to not be printed at the top? Next to the cpu name and features like AVX and SSE stuff. 

Not complaining, critiquing or anything, if is like that, it most be because of a good reason.  I just found it odd that's all, because I add to travel down a bit on the console before I saw the cpu core count and thought "why? when there's CPU info already at the top?".

NO, the current 2.12 + installer creates that folder on a new complete install, nothing to do with old versions.

The new installer creates a folder that is not used and then the advice is to ignore it.

Right now core count is printed by job system, and features are printed by SIMD processing system.
From the implementation point, vectorization and multithreading are orthogonal...

The standard info above the inventory grid is ALL, but it's with black letters, so hard to see on a dark background (and usually in TDM it's Dark). If you click on it and cycle through it becomes white:

Maybe just make it White by default?

I agree! I never even noticed that there was a title there. I will include this in my patch until it's included in core...

      Turns out my 15th anniversary mission idea has already been done once or twice before! I've been beaten to the punch once again, but I suppose that's to be expected when there's over 170 FMs out there, eh? I'm not complaining though, I love learning new tricks and taking inspiration from past FMs. Best of luck on your own fan missions!

      I wanna play Doom 3, but fhDoom has much better features than dhewm3, yet fhDoom is old, outdated and probably not supported. Damn!
      Makes me think that TDM engine for Doom 3 itself would actually be perfect.

      Maybe a bit of advice ? In the FM series I'm preparing, the two main characters have the given names Toby and Agnes (it's the protagonist and deuteragonist, respectively), I've been toying with the idea of giving them family names as well, since many of the FM series have named protagonists who have surnames. Toby's from a family who were usually farriers, though he eventually wound up working as a cobbler (this serves as a daylight "front" for his night time thieving). Would it make sense if the man's popularly accepted family name was Farrier ? It's an existing, though less common English surname, and it directly refers to the profession practiced by his relatives. Your suggestions ?

      Looks like the "Reverse April Fools" releases were too well hidden. Darkfate still hasn't acknowledge all the new releases. Did you play any of the new April Fools missions?

      Hope everyone has the blessing of undying motivation for "The Dark Mod 15th Anniversary Contest". Can't wait to see the many magnificent missions you all may have planned. Good luck, with an Ace!
