Version 2 (see op for download information):

a. removed dust fog particle effects for enhanced performance and to prevent game crashes on certain configurations. ( thank you @Bluehawk)

b. fixed the non-solid cave rocks in the final cave after the explosion ( thank you @STRUNK)

If you have further crashes in game during certain events, please make sure that nothing is equipped in the right hand (loot, keys, scrolls etc.). This problem will be fixed with the next release version of the mod.

 

Version 3 (see op for download information):

a.  several lights updated with volumetric dust
b.  changed the stairs geometry in one of the staircases that leads to the pools
c. the water pools now have stairs for noice reduction in case the player enters them
d. replaced a Jonus phonogram recording with a new take (great work, doctors)

Looks and sounds like a great mission, but unfortunately it won't load for me. I get the following error...

IDANIMATED 'FIREFLY_STATIONARY_ANIM_16' AT (2878 1666 - 1937): CANNOT FIND ANIM 'IDLE_04'

Could someone please help me to resolve what I'm missing? Thank you!

Okay, that was a lot of fun.  Love the System Shock 2 vibe the first couple of floors give you, the ambient music worked very well.  (By the way, that's Korg M1, Roland made the D50).

I've completed the mission.  I'm still missing two secret areas somewhere, but what's really bugging me is how to get

Spoiler

the final scroll out of the freezer.  I've not found a switch, can't smash or blast it open, and even out-of-the-box ideas like cutting the power or CO2 line further in the facility have failed to turn up anything.

...so reluctantly I'll have to ask for a hint there.

P.S. Nice record collection in the recreation area, and I particularly loved the power generator.

I'll correct the Korg mistake! :)

As for the last scroll:

Take a closer look at the undead guy patrolling the corridor with the defective robot lying in his recharging chamber...

Yeah, I did notice that

one of them had a key, and its resemblance to the freezer was noted.  However I've not been able to find a suitable lock for it.

3. search for a lock on the freezer

Thanks, finally got it.  Yeah, I spent a long long time last night and today looking for something like that, hidden or invisible.  If you do a map revision it might be worth making it just a little more obvious somehow because it's very well hidden.  I was even starting to wonder if the map was corrupted and it had gone missing.

It looks very cool but I get between 4 and 10 fps with the settings I always use. Tried some other missions for comparison and they work fine. My settings are already on the low end ...

Same for me! (Win10, i7 Processor, 16 GB RAM, Intel(R) UHD Graphics)

      I love playing The Dark Mod when it's cold in my place. Bonus points when it's a bit (or even very) dark and it's raining, too.

      I've been having stutters in Vulkan, apparently it's Nvidia Drivers' fault, so I reverted to 512 according to this: https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/forums/geforce-graphics-cards/5/505679/regular-microstutter-in-vulkan-applications-after-/?topicPage=40

      And no, that did NOT fix it. What's going on? My GPU is an RTX 2070, by the way.

      I just figured out how to make subtitles work in TDM (srt) for ingame cutscenes and how to automatically generate the srt file in Kdenlive's speech recognition (I just had to edit it a bit).
      Kdenlive is a free and open source multiplatform pretty advanced video editor.
      Test case is the first builder gost scene in Requiem saying:
      1 00:00:00,180 --> 00:00:02,140 the builder be with you this night 2 00:00:02,600 --> 00:00:04,840 there will be secrets all around you 3 00:00:05,040 --> 00:00:06,439 so have a keen eye The following page gives you the basic info:
      https://wiki.thedarkmod.com/index.php?title=Subtitles
      These 2 tutorials give you the info for creating the srt files:
      If you run into the problem the Kdenlive cannot find your Python PATH, then here is a solution:
      https://www.mail-archive.com/kde-bugs-dist@kde.org/msg672183.html
      Edit: During the installation of Python, in the installer, if you select more options, you can specify to set the PATH. I tried this on another Windows computer and this fixed the issue. Much easier solution.
       
      This is all the code for the testcase:
       
      Maybe I will create a seperate (text,images based) tutorial on the wiki.
