Tremulous 1.2 from darklegion - Client Server Mismatch

I would like to compile and run tremulous from darklegion’s source code https://github.com/darklegion/tremulous.git .
I am having troubles understanding where and what data files I need.

Here is my status:

  1. Clone repository.
  2. Make.
  3. Copy data files into base folder of the made build.

Here is what files I have in /home/ubuntu/Github/tremulous/build/release-linux-x86_64/base

Here is what files I have in /home/ubuntu/.tremulous/base


Please help with these two issues I get when I run tremulous.x86_64:
Issue A - Can’t find any servers. https://pastebin.com/VsiqQB7u
Issue B - Cannot create server. https://pastebin.com/kgJzi3aB

Perhaps I am missing some data files in my build’s base folder?

I found file vms-gpp1.pk3 online. I added it to /home/ubuntu/Github/tremulous/build/release-linux-x86_64/base .
I still get issue A with not finding any servers.
Now when I try to create a server I get an error saying client / server mismatch. https://pastebin.com/fz7ZxqpL

Hey, with the 1.2 client you need all the 1.1 files in the “base” folder, but files like “data-gpp1.pk3” and “vms-gpp1.pk3” need to go into the “gpp” folder that you may have to create. It will go alongside the “base” folder in your game’s directory.

I’ve gone ahead and compiled the game and the qvms and imported 1.1’s data and structured a working game directory. Feel free to either download it and use my compiled files or use the folder structure to get yours working properly. https://mega.nz/file/UoBwwC6b#iGz-MOyufb4YNoQ837wl3EAHFrCY3LyAIPK27oD6ji4

I did the following changes:

  • cut and paste data-gpp1.pk3 and vms-gpp1.pk3 into new folder ./gpp (alongside base folder).

The games doesn’t load correctly. https://pastebin.com/qdiuRSNx

According to the console, there is no search path to the gpp folder:

In contrast, with the two files in the base folder, tremulous runs, but cannot find or create server.

  1. (edit: I was missing folders and files)
    I tried downloading and running tremulous from the compiled code.
    The first time crashed and I got this error https://pastebin.com/deSBc8yQ
    The second and onward attempts get this error https://pastebin.com/JfZjziBs
  1. I added into the base folder of your download:
  • folders: cgames game qcommon ui and vm,
  • and files: cgamex86_64.so, gamex86_64.so, and uix86_64.so

It runs, and shows the same error as my own build. https://pastebin.com/9Ubh2AH7

Also, if I copy and paste the two gpp files into the base folder (instead of gpp folder), the game responds the same as mine (cant find or create server).

So it seems that both 1. and 2. are the same, where

  • I am getting visual and console errors (when using gpp folder with data-gpp1.pk3 and vms-gpp1.pk3)
  • cant join or create server (when using base folder with data-gpp1.pk3 and vms-gpp1.pk3)

I’d suggest just installing regular 1.1, and then replacing the executable binary with tremfusion. Tremfusion is the best 1.1 client and is much better than 1.2 gpp in terms of functionality, bugs and performance.

That’s not a bad idea, but I would like to compile 1.2 from source so that I can modify the application from the source code.

So, I am still getting the same main problems as shown in my first two posts above. Issue A: cant find servers, and issue B: client / server game mismatch error.

  • tried adding data-gpp1.pk3 and vms-gpp1.pk3 to new folder ./gpp (alongside base folder) resulting in more unique errors

I am stuck here, if anyone has some advice please give a reply.
