Absolutely fantastic! 
Especially: Fixed: Ambients don't light sides facing away! :)

This unfortunately still crashes (btw, does this only crash on my computer?):

Thank you for your hard work!

Hi thanks for the new edition.

Questions:

How much time is there roughly between releases?

When I build from source (I have no other choice) will this just overwrite the previous installation and settings etc?

That's completely undefined. It usually depends on how much time we have to work on stuff. Since it's not worth creating a release when there's only two or three minor things to ship, I'm usually waiting for one or two large changes and a bunch of bug fixes or smaller improvements. Then it's worth going through all the paperwork necessary to create a publication.

It depends where your prefix folder is when you install your compiled binaries. If you leave it to the default /usr/local/ then yes, anything that's there will be overwritten. That's speaking of the binaries - your personal settings and preferences are shared between all DR builds, they are always saved to and read from ~/.darkradiant/ IIRC.

Sometime ago we discussed keeping the user preferences in separate folders for each specific DarkRadiant version, like Blender, but this is not implemented yet.

I think that is ~/.config/darkradiant (in my case). That folder has the following files:

  • colours.xml
  • darkradiant.language
  • filters.xml
  • input.xml
  • user.xml

Is that the correct folder?

 

I have to remember to make a backup of the main bitmap folder because I made custom icons for use with a dark theme.

That's the folder with your custom settings, yes. Colour themes, filters, keyboard binds, window positions, most recently used files, etc.

Not sure if this is still the thing in the next version, but whenever I use RotateSelectionX/Y/Z on an entity, and then I try to move it, this command is issued repeatedly. IIRC that's a new thing that was not present in 2.11.

Edit: Huh, that's weird, I can only reproduce it for playerstart now, models and entitydefs work fine 😮

      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.
