DarkRadiant 3.3.0 released

Does proper instalation of this new version include uninstalling the old one, or does it overwrite?

AND do I have to backup my Radiant files still?

The installer (I think) is overwriting everything in the installation directory, as far as I know, it doesn't remove any previous installation. But I might be wrong on that, since I rarely use the installer myself on my development machine.

You don't need to backup your user settings, since version 3.0 every new minor release (3.x) is using its own separate settings folder and is not overwriting settings from previous versions anymore.

Ok, thanks for the reply. I'm only wanting one version of DR on my system and didn't know if I'd end up with 2 sets of settings or a mixed bag o' files ( of those not being over written). Excited to develop with the newish rendering capabilities and shadows etc.

- one more thing greebo, will DR ever support "overbright" for lights.... I'm asking for a friend. ( please say yes) lol

Reason- exporting lighting to other platforms is a tricky business, but absolutely necessary for what I'm doing. It seems that the  light intensity in DR is very low when brought into other rendering software. I know the Q4 editor allowed for this, and was usefull.

- anyway thanks for all yer hard work! 🥸

There is a lightscale setting in the .game file, which can be used to make lights brighter or darker in DR's render view. Not sure how this could help when exporting scenes to other engines, but that's about the only thing we have here to adjust light brightness globally, other than changing every light in the scene.

See for example doom3.game, Line 133:

<lightScale>2</lightScale>

While upgrading to 3.3.0, BitDefender antivirus reports this:

"The file E:\games\DarkRadiant\modules\sound.dll is infected with Gen:Variant.Tedy.207462 and was moved to quarantine. It is recommended that you run a System Scan to make sure your system is clean."

Should I be worried?

I don't think that the file has problematic code in it, but I can't prove it to you. I'm afraid these positive detections happen every now and then, something is triggering the scanners.

Uploading the sound.dll file to the online scan services shows this: https://www.virustotal.com/gui/file/7fe3607c7dd33cfee7cef53d0ccbdd3142a9f8860cfe24d639c4be043136c4dc
It confirms that BitDefender doesn't like the file, for what it's worth.

I could look into creating a checksum of the uploaded files next time I create a release, but this doesn't really add much value other than you're being able to prove that the file's the same as the original on my system. If the sound.dll gets infected on my machine while I build the release, the checksum would still be matching.

One could make sure and compile DR from source code, to rule out anyone messed with the released files on my computer or on Github.

      Anyone have any luck with light.setShader( string ) ? It seems to make whichever light you apply it to full-bright on the initial invoke?

      Don't you hate it when there's a quality discussion on a forum somewhere online about something, but then two disagreeing users derail and transform it into a back-and-forth poo slinging competition at one another?

      After watching the first three and a half episodes of "The Sandman" last night, I realize once again that overly imaginative narratives are not for me. Also, the main actor looks like he has a toothache.
      Which makes me wonder, is there a Dark Mod mission with a medieval dentist?
