There are a lot of questions here, so I'll answer them in order of when they appeared in the thread.
that's definitely great, I'm going to download this one now.
is it the first TDV or TDV 2?
This is TDV version 2.
Hi munawar, actually it's good that your ok, and i'm glad that tdv is now free. Has it the online mode?
Thanks! I appreciate the message a lot. It's been a while since I've had any interaction with the gaming community here, so it's nice to be back I plan to open source the server sometime. I haven't decided when yet (it depends on when I get a chance to go through and clean it up such as removing registration checks ) but yes, the server will eventually be available.
Would the agreement let us compile it and release a community version with....say...soundpacks and so on for free or would we just have to compile everything together?
This is a great question. This source is released under AGPL 3. This means that yes, you can redistribute source at your leisure, as long as you state exactly where the original source came from. You should also state what changes you made to the source, and the modified source has to be made publicly available. In essence, linking back to the Github page of TDV will be good enough, but the fact that you used source from TDV must clearly be stated and easy to find in your project. This goes for sounds as well. You're absolutely permitted to use the sounds in TDV for your own projects, as long as you clearly state where you got the sounds from, and the fact that you modified them to fit your needs. Also remember the key point that all modifications *MUST* be made freely available, even if your project is commercial.
For some reason, I can't run the game.
It shows me a dialog said, that the program has encountered a breakpoint.
If I go to show details, here's the problem:
Problem Event Name: APPCRASH
Application Name: tdv.exe
Application Version: 184.108.40.20664
Application Timestamp: 588458f0
Fault Module Name: XAudio2_7.dll
Fault Module Version: 9.29.1962.0
Fault Module Timestamp: 4c0641e5
Exception Code: 80000003
Exception Offset: 000308af
OS Version: 6.1.7601.2.1.0.256.1
Locale ID: 9242
If you're getting a breakpoint error or an XAudio 2 error, please download the DirectX installer from here: http://www.microsoft.com/directx
TDV uses XAudio2 for Ogg files, so if you don't have it, you'll get the errors I'm seeing that people are posting. I'll include that in the readme for the dependencies.
