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.

      Hey @nbohr1morehow come the zombies in The Dark Mod don't have a "resurrection" mechanic to it, similar to how Thief has it?
      They're quite a weak creature as of right now, it's merely a walking corpse that slashes you, making attacking them to kill them an actual strategy.
      Would be better if they had some cool mechanism to it that truly makes them a danger, such as the resurrection idea itself.

      Query: when was the last time a zombie in a video game was unnerving or scary to you? I'm chipping away at my anniversary submission and I've been trying to gather opinions on the subject. I'm perfectly capable of lighting them well, changing their sfx, and creating effective ambience, but I'm worried that zombies at their core are just too overdone to be an effective payoff to the tension I'm creating.

      Has anyone had any luck with textures from Polyhaven? Their OpenEXR normal maps seem too washed out and give incorrect shading in the engine.

      I tried to upscale the TDM logo video. First try:

      briefing_video.mp4 You can test it ingame by making a copy of the core tdm_gui.mtr and place it in your-tdm-root/materials/ , then edit line 249 of that file into the location where you placed the new briefing.mp4 file.
      What I did was I extracted all the image files, then used Upscayl to upscale the images using General photo (Real-Esrgan) upscale setting and then turn it back into a video.
      I might have to crop it a bit, the logo looks smaller on screen (or maybe it's actually better this way?). My video editor turned it into a 16:9 video, which I think overal looks better than 1:1 video of original.
