In-Game All Black
« on: November 18, 2015, 01:32:37 PM »
Hey guys,

Hope all's well. It's been a while since I posted here but I've finally got a bit of time to work on some levels again. My problem is that I'm having trouble after loading maps. The map seems to load okay but the in-game world is all black (I also checked flashlight) and the only thing going for me is that I can hear jump and movement sounds so what do you think could be the issue?

Thanks,

Quaid.

You dmap the map?  Have "g_stoptime" set to 1?  (If so you shouldn't be able to hear anything).

Seriously though, good to have you back. I guess the first question might be, did you try a fresh install?
Or possibly before that delete your config or check to see if there are any console commands like r_skip... set to 1? Missing textures? All I can think of atm, hope you get it sorted out.

Are you starting the maps with "map mapname.map" or "testmap mapname.map" ? if the second then the blackness can be caused by a leak, the first one stop's loading the map on a leak the second don't.

I've tried what you guys have said but it remains the same. If I load any other mods and try to play them they seem to work but not (presently) Total Recall. I've tried deleting the TR mod folder from Doom 3 and then re-adding it but the same thing happens. I'll keep you posted as to what happens next. I had to laugh at the Total Recall references guys :D

Still no joy for me :(

I might have to reinstall Doom again or perhaps downgrade to version 1.3
