I experienced this problem before 2.0.

I've had this before 1.7 and 1.8

Not sure if this has always been here or not.

Dhewm fixes:

https://github.com/dhewm/dhewm3/commit/16958d070b8f8e596ff42d9461d082981a7a944c


Hmm.

Looks like Dhewm fixes are already there.

Maybe we just need to ensure that the same entity and light attributes from:
SaveGame.cpp are matched in RenderWorld_Demo.cpp

That makes sense why the world was black.

I honestly have not tried this in a long while, I'll try it now.

As an aside, the original Training Mission demo probably won't work even if this
functionality is fixed due to asset changes from Standalone 2.0.

A newly recorded demo would be needed.

(Which probably explains the pre-2.0 comment. 1.08 we updated MANY assets to be
standalone ready. Perhaps even 1.07 since the GPL release came out shortly before 1.07.)

Demo's are not compatible between version changes anyways.

Timedemo works, but then crashes at the end, and there's other issues graphically.
There's no soft shadows, and I saw a few black boxes (missing entities?).

When recording a demo, game seems to run at about 30 fps.

Also, can't record with uncapped fps.
I get this error:

--------- Game Map Shutdown done -----
stopped recording .
ERROR:idSessionLocal::Frame: numCmdsToRun < fixedTic
