I accidentally found a bug that's easy to miss but likely also to fix: Select an arrow, in my case I was using the water arrow. Hold down the fire button to charge your shot, wait until it's fully charged but before getting tired and having to abort it. Press esc to enter the main menu without letting go of the left mouse button, then press esc again to resume. If you look and move around, the position of the hand and bow will no longer update until you let go to fire, you can see your first person hands floating in mid-air from a distance till you release the mouse button which will fire and update the hands again.

Looks like this has been a bug since at least 2011.

1.  Instead of Hide Lightgem I would say Show Lightgem and default it to yes.

 

2.  Currently the last changed setting stays highlighted. I would set it to only highlight when hovered.

 

3. Instead of having both Enabled/Disabled and Yes/No, maybe choose one and stick to that in the whole settings section?

  • Hold-Frob Interact                 Short delay
  • Open doors on unlock           Disabled
  • Auto-search bodies                Enabled
  • Pickup messages                    Enabled
  • Higlight held objects               Enabled
  • Lightgem                                Enabled
  • Bow: Attached aimer               Disabled
  • Blacjack helper                        Enabled
  • Frob helper                             Fade in
  • Head Bob                               1
  • Mantle roll                             1.0

Possibly make the setting text color red Disabled / green Enabled ?

 

I think the term Mantle roll makes no sense. It's not like you're rolling while mantling.

Interesting :o Was sure it must have been something that either broke recently or was never discovered until now. I actually discovered it as I changed some of my default keys, then forgot what the key was to cancel my shot so I pressed escape hoping that would put the arrow down, then I returned from the main menu and noticed this occurs.

      Happy birthday to me!
      Yes, today's my birthday and as much as I want to play The Dark Mod, I won't until it's late Autumn, where it should be a bit chilly in my place and there's some wind too.
      For now, it's time to enjoy my birthday, if any of you want to play a great fan mission in my honour...Well that's asking too much, just play the mission because it's fun, not because of me, enjoy it yourself! 💪

      Took a break from TDM until I got my backlog under control. It's been months and it's still not "under control". Damnit.

      I sleep well at night knowing the player will never see the absolute nightmare that is my sealing brushwork outside the playable area. Only the pointfile can judge me now.

      Somehow I admire the fact that the material from Dune has now been filmed for the third time. Personally, I could never do much with the material, but as a child of the 80s, I of course know the David Lynch movie...and that movie was at least funny!
