Load save crash help!

Recommended Posts

You might get some results if you set "seta logfile" "2" in your darkmod.cfg, then look at the resulting file in your project folder. I have experienced a very similar issue on a very large map, which I haven't solved yet. If I try to quick load, I don't get a crash, but the map doesn't load and I get an error:

Hmm okay I got the log, I dont see anything out of the ordinary but I also don't know what to look for really. It crashes about when it looks like it should finish loading. qconsole.log

Is that a crash to desktop without error?

Yeah, it loads about 80 percent there and crashes. Its hard to diagnose because I havent touched the mission in a while and afaik, I havent added anything new to it in a while. This might just be the first time Ive noticed the crash and its just been hiding in the mission.

Have you tried loading a quicksave in 2.11? What version of tdm do you use currently?

Have you tried disabling all scripts to see if it's script related?


I mean I just share some ideas, I'm sure you know much more of tdm.

I havent tried in 2.11 yet but I will.

Just an update on this. For now I think I fixed it by:
- Addressing most of the warning in the log above. Outside common errors like some missing textures and such that are part of the core. 
- Made sure to give my parallel lights "parallelSky " "1" spawnarg. 
- Deleted my .aas files and rebuilt them
- Dmapped the entire thing

Right now I am not getting the load error . It's a very hard problem to nail down because the console isn't giving a specific script name that it's getting hung up on (if that is even the issue similar to Amadeus's problem) AND I am actively working on the mission, creating new errors, fixing other broken things. ect. 

Its definitely something I fear will pop back up in beta testing though :(

      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!
