    I used the console command and finally worked! Thank you Seven, Talisa and TheKillingJoke for your quick responses.


    a few issues not related to the mod but..

    1. I'm getting some blank textures at the beginning of the map. I had a similar issue in id1 but fixed it with a shader fix. I think it had to do with a mod which added some effects.

    2. I'm also having issues with the water mod. It's just glowing white and no texture visible. This issue is not present in the id1 map. I added the pack1 provided by Seven.

    3. Is there a way to make the camera higher than it is. I feel like a rodent running trough the corridors. Is the camera stuck with the Player model? Any help?


    Overall this mod is a must have. I was able to modify enemy health and size to make the game feel more current, but it also made me feel even smaller. My only issue with the mod is how confusing is to set up the whole thing. I ended up with 3 or 4 config files in my hipnotic folder. This mod is in need of a custom installation. Hopefully someone with the skills can help cause the mod is worth it! Perhaps just make full versions and avoid updates might help a bit for mod noobs like me. Cause that got me really confused at first.



    And thank you to Talisa for the complete guide topic. It really helps a lot to have everything in one place.

    Hello MostWanted,

    You showed us a screenshot of a config file. The problem is, that this config is not used by the engine !
    You can see it by the fact that binds are not sorted.
    If the config file would be used, your bind "f" line would be automatically sorted between the bind "d" and bind "s" lines at next engine start/quit.

    Furthermore you are writing that you play the id maps and showed a screenshot from your hipnotic folder.
    You know that hipnotic is the 1st mission pack and is not used/loaded when playing the id1 maps, right ?
    So, editing the hipnotic config file will not do anything. You have to edit the config file from the mod you are actually playing.



    If you still have issues with adding shortcut binds:
    Darkplaces (in certain circumstances) uses config files located here:
    "My documents/My Games/Darkplaces/"

    You can of course also bind shortcuts via the console directly and do not need to edit the config files manually. To do this, type this into your console:
    bind f "impulse 30"
    And it will be written/saved into the correct config file.

    Optionally you can ignore the usage of config files from your "my documents" folder by starting darkplaces with the –nohome command in its shortcut. This way the config files from your regular Quake installation folder will be used and nothing else.



    The fact that your flashlight is switched on when typing: impulse 30 into your console means that you are doing nothing wrong and the only remaining issue is to find/edit the correct config file.

    Have fun with your Quake.

    Best wishes,
    Seven


    PS:
    The SMC has its own CSQC mod (included in the download) which surely does not mess up/edit your config files. So I suggest to not use other ones in combination with the SMC.
    Adding key binds to your autoexec or default configs should be avoided as it does not cure the root cause of your issue and makes things even worse later on. Please follow my above instructions to fix the root cause of your issue.

    are you using nahuel & smith's CSQC hud as well? http://quakeone.com/forums/quake-mod...edit-tool.html

    if so, that hud has the nasty habit of rebinding several keys on startup (including the F key)


    a quick and easy solution is to add your prefered key-bindings for flashlight and quick-melee to your autoexec.cfg,
    so that they will automagically be re-binded back to your prefered keys again

    Hi MostWanted.

    Try to write those binds into your default.cfg file. That helped me. Here ist the text from my default.cfg with keybinds for flashlight and instant melee attack and the teleporter, maybe it helps you:

    bind MOUSE2 "impulse 20" // Instant Melee
    bind r "impulse 40" //Personal Teleporter

    bind c +movedown
    bind SHIFT +speed
    bind CTRL +attack
    bind UPARROW +forward
    bind DOWNARROW +back

    bind RIGHTARROW +right

    bind SPACE +jump
    bind ENTER +jump

    bind TAB +showscores

    bind 1 "impulse 1"
    bind 2 "impulse 2"
    bind 3 "impulse 3"
    bind 4 "impulse 4"
    bind 5 "impulse 5"
    bind 6 "impulse 6"

    Hi! New Player here. I managed to install this mod along many others (With tons of frustration) and the smc worked perfectly except for the issue that I cant bind the flashlight no matter how much I try. Here's a pic of my config file which i pasted from the Steam hipnotic folder:


    I can turn it on via console command but doesn't work with the bind. Help please?


    Just played the Id mission for the first time and I really enjoyed this game. I bought this game cause I saw a video with the graphic mods and really caught my attention, no regrets at all. The modding can be really frustrating tho. But also loved this mod in particular. Thank you Seven. Btw while browsing this forum I noticed the level of class, decor and behavior of the members here. Kudos!

    Mine is updated Seven no worries on that , love the new build and features, SMC 5.41 is working great a few pretty mods like glossy and reflections seem to be difficult to run on the newer DP but SMC is going good.

    Hello Nickelbawker,
    It works in all builds, but you should definitely update yours. A lot of things got fixed/added since then.

    Hello luisdacherry,
    The SMC will not change your textures, because it doesnt contain any. You must be using additional mods/files.

    Yes, you are using a [map].ent file which does not belong/match to your [map].bsp. Delete that .ent file or disable .ent support.
    The SMC does not contain any .ent files.
    Only these SMC addons include .ent files.:
    - custom particle/sound effects
    - weather effects

    You most probably are trying to start a map called start.bsp from a mod or addon episode. Because all the other maps have unique names. You can temporary remove the above mentioned SMC addons and/or your other additional .ent files to see if it fixes your issue.

    Then you can follow my detailed instruction how to permanently fix issues like these here even with those .ent files in your Quake directory.

    The SMC gives you totally freedom to adjust every single player or monster health/damage/property values. But it does not alter them by default, because it would change gameplay.
    Do it via the smc_config.cfg file as described in the readme.txt.
    Read/browse through it to see what options you have ... there are many.

    You can make Quake a walk in the park or a *real* nightmare if you want.

    Have fun with your Quake,
    Seven

    Fixed it by disabling "use only coronas" which allowed me to enable dlights, thank you.

    Hello Duthc,

    the SMC already had all the code that was need for the new feature.
    Take the demon/wizard teleporting, mix it with the adjustable size feature, add some cosmetics here and there and the corpses collision correction was born. And this time even without the _z sticking in floor bug in Non-DP engines.

    Combining/using different existing features always brings up interesting new ones.

    Regards,
    Seven

    Happy Easter, Seven!

    Glad to see you still keeping up on the SMC my friend! Very nice work on the collision detetion for dead bodies.

    you can disable all gameplay changes and monsters and such by simply editing the smc_config.cfg,
    which can be edited with any basic text-editor like notepad, word or notepad++

    there are basic descriptions for what every cvar does inside the smc_config.cfg
