I installed vk redist x64 ( 2017-2022), but it didn't help. Procedure entry point not found....

Please help urgently... I would really like to play this game.  TDM 2.10 has no problems with the launch on windows 7

add "#undef TRACY_HAS_CALLSTACK" at the end of TracyCallstack.h

or update dbghelp.dll

I am not a programmer. I can't compile files. . Please give me the required files for this last version of the game

I put the updated dbghelp.dll (v 10.0.16353.1000) file in the game package. But now a new problem has appeared (api-ms-win-crt-private-1-1-0.dll)  ... Please give me the entire  dll library of files to launch the game on windows 7

To obtain the latest version of DbgHelp.dll, go to https://developer.microsoft.com/windows/downloads/windows-10-sdk and download Debugging Tools for Windows.

Yeah, one of the libraries does something which does not allow it to boot on Windows 7.
We hacked around it for 2.10 release, but for dev builds we returned back to clean state.

Actually, the developers of Tracy has changed the way it works, so if we update Tracy, the problem should go away.
Unless I forget about it, I hope it will be fixed in the next dev build, sorry.

P.S. Or you can actually try to update your dbghelp.dll by installing Windows 10 SDK.
Note that it would eat some hundreds of MB of space on your drive.

I can't help but be "that guy" who feels compelled to state that Microsoft ended support for Windows 7 a while ago. While I'm sure plenty of people feel it was the last best version of Windows, for the sake of support for newer software/hardware it seems prudent to point out that this is going to be a reoccurring issue until you move to something newer.

A word of warning, Agent Denton. This was a simulated experience; real LAMs will not be so forgiving.

Dude, I'm stuck with Windows 7, so if you're telling me that there will be issues with 2.11, I'm just not going to upgrade TDM or DR, ever. (...and no, I don't have hundreds of MB to spare on my drive either. It's full.)

Never say never. Eventually hardware will die and/or your tolerance for stuff no longer working due to newer software failing to run on older operating systems will force the issue. It's just the nature of modern computers.

I changed my internal clock battery, so it'll last me a couple of years more. I was thinking of buying a new computer, but then armageddon happened and apparently the computer prizes just shot up like crazy. ...and then there's a war with Russia, and then there's gonna be the oil crisis starting October, and after that zombies, and after that, you know, after the zombie apocalypse has killed everyone, and just me and Civvie 11 is left on the planet, then I figure I can just break in somewhere and get me a computer for free.

...so I'm holding out. I don't need a new version of The Dark Mod - it's good enough as it is. Once I've recreated my whole hometown in a map, then I might want to get more bells and whistles.

  1. TDM 2.11 should work perfectly on Windows 7. It is only dev builds which are affected, and I hope to fix that.
  2. There is no reason to avoid TDM updates: tdm_installer allows you to downgrade your installation if you find that new version has some critical issue.

Thank you! That is a HUGE relief for me. :)

Could anyone check if the just released dev build works?

I considered it, but even if my version would crash, my system isn't up to date at all, so that wouldn't help you much.

I'm asking the people who had the original problem, i.e. guys on rather vanilla Windows 7.

Like @Gadavre

Fine, I'll do it. Hold on.

Update: I assume that I am to download the newest build (dev/16498-9944) and not the titular dev/16498-9919.

Update: I am able to launch it and load a map just fine. There are no obvious error/warning messages in the Darkmod.log.

I was busy, didn't think it would matter, and it took me only 30 minutes to change my mind.

      Anyone here played Inscryption? At first, I was like "no, I am not going to play a stupid card game", but this game is so much more than that. It is so meta, full of 4th wall breaks, and feels so damn spooky and weird because of it. Absolutely recommended, if you can stand the visuals. I recommend not reading up too much on it, as that could easily spoil half the incredible surprises. Just know that what you see in the beginning is by far not everything.

      Tried to make a tdm advertisement commentpost at one of civvie11 youtube videos about T2. Post got marked as spam. His problem (to not discover TDM for himself),..not my problem.
      But some help of some fellow TDM yt-videocomment posters would be nice. To ask him and others, to play TDM. To get more players/creators.

      Currently Profile Information has 3 fields, these are shown in forum posts under your avatar:
      1. Gender
      2. Location
      3. Interests
      I think that it could be useful to have an extra field called "Operating system" (under location). It can be useful for tech support and to see what people use.
      Alternatively it could be a more general term, like PC system, so that you can for example state that you use an AMD gpu.
