Summary0003463: Mission preview screenshots disappearing
DescriptionThe mission preview images are disappearing when trying to view them in the mission downloader. Sometimes the image will load, then disappear after a few seconds, sometimes the wrong one is shown.
It doesn't always happen but it does get worse the more you look through the images.
Steps To ReproduceGo to New Mission
Go to Download Missions
Select any mission on the left
At the bottom where is says Mission Details, click on More...
For example the first screenshot for the mission Betrayal is black. clicking on Next will sometimes bring up the next image or it may show a blank image.
Additional InformationThis happens with v2 standalone and in the Doom 3 folder
TagsNo tags attached.

I cleaned out the fms folder in 2.0, then did an SVN update to retrieve everything that comes with SVN.

I then brought up the mission details page for every mission on the first 'available missions' screen, and the first mission on the second. 'Betrayal' was among the missions I looked at.

All images displayed properly. No black images, no images disappearing.

Are these images kept on all mirrors? Maybe it sometimes doesn't work because of which mirror is selected to provide the images.

Also, the images are retrieved and stored in fms/_missionshots. Maybe the images have gotten corrupted while sitting there. Might be worth having those experiencing the problem empty that folder and try again.

I just downloaded 1.08 last night on this USB stick, and it's doing it too.
Tested on 3 computers.

EDIT: I just emptied the missionshots folder (had 2 images from Betrayal) and now it's working fine.

It seems that just cleaning out the _missionshots folder fixes this issue. Perhaps a clean mission shots option can be added to the in-game menu, or perhaps players could just go a clean that folder out.

Can this issue be resolved then?

That would be up to the coders I guess. It may be simple for players to work around, however this never used to happen and there were changes made in 1.08 to the system. This never happened in 1.07, and is regression.
Also this fix is temporary as it started happening again a few days later.
It's up to you guys, I was just bringing it up and have no idea how to fix it.

Your last comment was that it was working fine. Is that no longer the case?

Deleting all the saved screenshots out of the _missionshots folder fixes the issue for a short time.
The issue returns and I have to clean out the missionshots folder again. The issue comes back.

@AH: How long after clearing _missionshots did it take for the problem to reappear? I've been checking it for 2 days, and it still works fine.

Are you attempting to view the mission shots for missions you've already viewed, or for new missions?

There must be something you're doing that I'm not.

Btw, all mission shots are retrieved from www.thedarkmod.com. Not the mirrors. Maybe a temporary connection glitch is messing with the images?

Yeah, very strange, the behaviour seems to have changed slightly.
I deleted everything in _missionshots folder and ran darkmod. I recorded this video:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UKxRJkxxe8I


This happens on my work computer, my laptop and my desktop. All are running the same version of Darkmod. Standalone, lastest SVN version of assets, and I just updated and compiled the source just before making this video. So very latest code and assets.

Just a shot in the dark, but could it have anything to do with the uppercase letters in the filename?

That's very strange indeed. And you're running on Win7 in each case?

I didn't see any black screens. Just pics being displayed, then disappearing after a second. Since I saw "can't find material ..." messages for every pic displayed, I assume that's a false negative. I.e. it goes to find the pic first, fails, then downloads it from the server.

I'm not sure what to do next. I need to duplicate the problem before I can fix it.

Of note, I do have a mission currently installed, not sure if that makes a difference. Yes I am running everything on Windows 7.
Laptop and desktop both running Windows 7 64bit Ultimate, work desktop is running Windows 7 Professional 32bit.

EDIT: And the black screen hasn't happened in a bit, it's usually just a missing image now.

I installed Outpost, let it sit for a minute, then exited. W/o leaving TDM, I went to the New Missions screen and looked at a bunch of pics from 4 missions.

No problems.

Quit TDM, started it again, went directly to New Missions. Asked for pics from another mission.

No problems.

------------------------------------------------------------------

Let's see if we can get some debugging information when this happens.

In your darkmod.ini file, set these two variables to "1":

LogDebug=1
LogClass_MAINMENU=1

When the problem happens again, post the Darkmod.log file and we'll see if there are any clues in there. Thanks.

Would compiling a debug version of the source help? But I can try turning debug on.

Having a debug version will only help when it's crashing, or I can reproduce the bug here and walk through the code as the problem happens.

Or you can debug it yourself if you have the time.

Let' start with the debug messages, though. Maybe they'll tell us something.

It's been a couple days since I last tested this, so I tried again.

Looked at a half-dozen missions, some I'd already looked at, some I hadn't.

No problems.

Any luck with the debug messages?

Okay I emptied out the _missionshots folder and tried previewing the images. Failed as usual on Glenham Tower. Here's the log:

Okay, nothing interesting in that log.

I attached tdm_game01.pk4 to this report. It has debug statements in it pertaining to displaying preview images.

Please do the following:

1 - rename your current 2.0 tdm_game01.pk4 to something else

2 - download the attached tdm_game01.pk4 and place it in the darkmod folder

3 - delete any gamex86.dll in the darkmod folder (or rename it if you want)

4 - edit darkmod.ini and make these changes:

LogDebug=1
LogClass_MAINMENU=0
LogClass_AAS=1

5 - clear out _missionshots

6 - start TDM and repeat the test until something fails

7 - when done, swap your original tdm_game01.pk4 back into place. Keeping the debug version won't hurt anything, but I'm testing a bunch of things with this, so there might be side effects when you're playing a mission

7 - post Darkmod.log here

Thanks.

And one or both of those had a problem? I see no errors in the log.

Did they appear, then disappear after a second or two? Or not appear at all?

Okay, then that sounds like the GUI is having a problem retaining the image.

I'll have a look at the GUI definition and code.

I looked at the download GUI and I can't find anything obviously wrong.

It paints the first image a few tics after the mission details overlay appears. Then it sits there and waits for user input. There's nothing that says 'after so many seconds wipe the image'. It doesn't go back and get a fresh copy of the image every few tics. It just sits there. When you hit PREV or NEXT it repaints with the new image and goes back to sitting there.

So I'm at a loss as to what's happening. With it not happening on my system, there's no way I can debug it.

We can only hope that someone who's able to debug a GUI has it occur on their system.

It seems to happen at the end of a fade. Maybe the fade-in code has a bug? Maybe some "static-image-material" doesn't exist or is broken?

You could delete these lines:
set "SAMDScreenshotsScreenshotNext::background" "textures/common/nodraw";
set "SAMDScreenshotsScreenshotNext::matcolor" "1 1 1 0";
from tdm_gui01\guis\mainmenu_download.gui and see if it changes anything.

It sort of works, I removed those lines from the gui, but now when I go to another missions screenshots I see the last image I looked at, and the Next and Back button stop working and it won't download any new images.

EDIT: I just wasn't waiting long enough, the images do show up eventually.

So the only issue now is that instead of the blank parchement, I see the last level shot I was looking at, before the new one comes in.

So there may be some race condition in setting $gui::av_mission_next_screenshot, or some z-order issue...

Adding:
set "SAMDScreenshotsScreenshotNext::background" "textures/common/nodraw";
right below:

// Remove previously visible screenshot
set "SAMDScreenshotsScreenshot::background" "textures/common/nodraw";

Would probably fix the "I see the last image I looked at" problem.
But all this is a hack - I can't find the source of the problem.

Some new info on this problem. Noticed I had it again, so recorded a video of it.
Looks like it is a race condition as when it's writing a new file to my flash drive, when it encounters cells that need to be wiped before writing, the whole game freezes.
Once it unfreezes, I see the screenshot for a split second, then it disappears.

I'm assuming that you guys don't get this because you are probably not running TDM off of a sometimes slow, USB flash drive.

Here's the video of what happens: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gT_TUEQOtGk

Now this won't always happen, it's just when a new file is created to hold the image, and the cells need a wipe before they can be written to.
This causes the Disk to stop responding for a "short" period of time.
Usually it's quick to come back, a few milliseconds, other times it's several seconds like in the video.

I also very frequently observe this. I feel like it starts happening once you have added a mission to the download queue.

I think this could be a datarace. When I attach the debugger and add a breakpoint at the end of CDownloadMenu::UpdateNextScreenshotData(), it will reproducably fade to NULL. When I remove the breakpoint, it successfully fades to the image.

So, I tried investigating this datarace a little bit, but it's a pain in the butt, so I give up. ;-) I have a workaround for this issue, however:
In mainmenu_download.gui, under FadeToNextScreenshotAnim, remove these lines that make screenshotNext disappear.
  set "SAMDScreenshotsScreenshotNext::background" "textures/common/nodraw";
  set "SAMDScreenshotsScreenshotNext::matcolor" "1 1 1 0";

I would say that this workaround is "good enough", as the screenshots cannot fade to nodraw anymore. As a downside, you can now clearly see what is going wrong in our code: Sometimes, the screenshot will swap immediately and then try to fade from the NEW screenshot to the NEW screenshot AGAIN. Also, when the mission details for another mission are opened, it will still show the screenshot of the last mission and then directly start to fade. I have added a workaround for that as well.

Yeah, in retrospect, maybe I should've read the history here. :D Anyway, I have also added a workaround for the "I see the last image I looked at". So, although we didn't fully understand the problem, yet, it is definitely better right now than it was before, so I'd vote to use these workaround or disable fading completely.

The workaround has been merged to 2.07 beta5. I mark this issue as fixed, to indicate that something has been done already, but leave the status on "feedback" since the actual reason for this behavior has not yet been found.
