Summary 0005118: No 'Press attack to start' if an error message stops map loading
Revision 14.02.2020 08:52 by Dragofer
Steps To Reproduce Bug reproduction: The attached archive contains a map with a script that has a typo. Attempting to load it will cause an error message. Correcting the typo will let the map load but no 'Press attack to start' shows up so it's unplayable.

1) Extract the attached archive to darkmod/fms/dmap_script/*
2) Start TDM and install the new FM titled: Dmap fails if error in .script
3) Use console to 'dmap fd' then 'map fd' ('testmap fd' also works). You will get a warning that there's an error in the .script and the map doesn't load.
4) Open fms/dmap_script/maps/fd.script. Change hread to thread in line 9 and save.
5) Use console to 'map fd'. The map loads, but no 'Press attack to start'.

To fix, either:
A) Restart TDM, then use the console to 'map fd'
B) Load a different .map, then use the console to 'map fd'

2) Start TDM and install the new FM titled: Dmap fails if error in .script

4) Open fms/dmap_script/maps/fd.script. Change hread to thread in line 9 and save.
5) 'map fd'. You will see a blurry red texture covering the whole screen, won't be able to move etc. as per the description.

To fix:
1) Close down TDM.
2) Delete all files in darkmod/fms/dmap_script/maps except fd.map and fd.script
3) Start TDM and 'dmap fd', then 'map fd'. The map now loads properly.
