congrates & thanks   😇👻
looks like you need a break !?

😉 I was near to give you a "Haha-Smilie" or a "Confused-Smilie"
Why do you offer the secrets right with the release ?
(next time perhaps by EDIT - some month later ? ) 👻

Basically someone always asks. We're all grownups here and it's in spoiler tags so...

Because it's super useful not having to browse through the whole thread, and probably not even finding what you're looking for, because people put it in spoiler tags, which are excluded from the search.

You don't have to click on the spoiler tag in the original post.

anyone else having low performance in some indoor areas? i can understand some when starting outside but in a fairly confined space like the lower ship decks or administration building i'm not sure what would be tanking things to a noticeable effect

Maybe it's the volumetric lights? There are some in the ship. Can't remember if they are in the admin building, but apart from that they are used sparingly so hopefully you'll be ok.

i'm on Win10 with an i5-8400 and RTX 2070 so it's starting to get up there in age especially for CPU but i just dont know that i've had so many dips indoors in particular before. i switched to stencil shadows already and have still been getting drops

You're on TDM 2.12 correct?

Please post your current Darkmod.cfg

Also, the performance wiki has been updated recently:

yea i'm on 2.12. i remembered to turn off soft shadows too and it seemed to help in some smaller areas thus far. not sure if it's just the scale of things as i venture into the next outdoor area

To begin, this is a large mission and EFX reverb is gonna take it's toll ( lots of reverb bounces to calculate ).

Try playing with EFX off.

 

Other than that ( or if you absolutely need the reverb ) try these changes:

 

Set FPS to "Uncapped" in the advanced video settings ( some drivers don't like Doom 3 style FPS management )

Set MaxFPS to 60 (or whatever your Refresh is )

Set Color to 32-bit on the Advanced Video menu.

 

Config changes:

tdm_lg_interleave 3

tdm_lg_interleave_min 31

I dislike that reset after updating. But, I guess it has to be, if options and variables are added.

I've got into Jerry's Jewels, but the two display cabinets are unfrobbable and unbreakable, and I can't find a switch in the shop which might open them.  Have I missed something?  Or is this a bug?  Or a joke (a jewelry shop with nothing to steal)?

Spoiler

The lids should be frobable, and pickable.  If they aren't it's a bug, which I haven't seen before now.

I have the 64 bit version of TDM, and ran the installer before downloading the FM to ensure I was up-to-date.  I played on Expert, and managed to meet the loot objective without getting my hands on the jewels in the shop.  I did not encounter any other problems except an occasional and temporary framerate stuttering. 

I've just transferred one of my savegames to another laptop with an up-to-date version of TDM, and with this FM installed, and the problem with the jewelry cases is still there. 

It's a great mission otherwise!

The installer should automatically reset the settings it changes and leave the rest intact. I think that should be doable.

You get the option to "Restore old Config" after upgrade but we advise against it since sometimes it reverts new default settings for performance features that have been improved and tested enough to made default.

I think the next TDM release will have FPS mode to uncapped as default since it is critical to Linux players but also fixes a few audio sync bugs and even improves things for Windows players apparently. On balance, uncapped mode is more fixed and maintained than the old id software capped mode. ( Quite a strange thing considering all the bugs we used to have with uncapped mode. )

      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!
