Summary0005118: No 'Press attack to start' if an error message stops map loading
DescriptionIf the mapper opens TDM to test his map but runs into any error message (i.e. scripting error, entity targets itself etc.), he can fix the error but the map becomes unplayable because the 'Press attack to start' window never shows up.

This bug happens if the error stops the first attempt to load a map after starting TDM.

The workaround for solving this bug is to either restart TDM or load a different map, then load the first map again.
Steps To ReproduceBug 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'
Additional InformationThis has been around at least since TDM 2.04.
