Announcements / Backcats - Farewell and Good Luck!
« Last post by Bryantdl7 on May 13, 2020, 12:25:29 pm »
Hey everyone,


It saddens me to write this, but Backcats, has decided to retire from Darkstorm. I have let him know that he is always welcome to come back to his rank of manager, and our community.

Backcats has been with us since the beginning, starting on our server over six years ago, far exceeding anyone else other than myself. Backcats has helped our community grow tremendously, and the gratitude we all feel for his improvements to the community are immense. He has been an excellent team player, and most importantly a great friend.

Backcats is now set to the rank of retired staff.


Thank you again for all you have done Backcats - I cannot say enough good about what you have done for Darkstorm.

It will be sad to see you go, but you are always welcome back should you change your mind!


- Bryant

Guides/Info / How to Install 64-Bit Garrys Mod (Gmod)
« Last post by Bryantdl7 on April 27, 2020, 09:47:38 pm »
Since it seems there are no easy guides available on this, I figured I would make one for everyone. This guide was made on Kubuntu 18.04, however, it should apply to most platforms.



Step 1. Open Steam

Step 2.
Go to the Library tab which has all of your games


Step 3. Right-click Garrys Mod, and choose properties


Step 4. This will open up your in-game settings like so. Navigate to the tab called BETAS


Step 5. Choose the beta which starts with x86-64. The wording will differ depending on your platform, but it must start with x86-64.


While you are indeed by the definition of steam installing a beta, this is by far the most reliable branch of Garrys Mod. You will encounter some weird things at times, but mostly if you are a sorry fool like me using Linux :)


Alright, everyone, that concludes how to get 64-Bit Garry's Mod installed! If you found this guide helpful, make sure to check out our servers!

Darkstorm News / Forum Repair Complete!
« Last post by Bryantdl7 on March 31, 2020, 05:45:55 pm »
Hi everyone!

As of last night, with great thanks to Linkjay, we have got the forums back into a very usable state, with a brand new theme! We have kept all the original posts while fixing all of the problems we were facing on the forums up until this point.

A lot of great things are in store in the future, starting with the website, and now onto greater things. I have gotten more involved now with the Chinese Virus making everyone be home a lot more, so expect to see me on the server more often as well!

Fun fact, as of writing this server, we are the fourth most popular build server running flatgrass, how crazy is that?

Keep an eye on the news tab, more will be coming soon!

Darkstorm News / Server Cleanup
« Last post by Bryantdl7 on August 28, 2019, 07:58:24 pm »
As of 8/28/19 a large number of addons have been removed from the server. Most likely, a large number of the addons you enjoyed are included in this cleanup.

Why did you do this?
We all know that we have been having a good amount of lag lately. In order to narrow down the culprit, I have decided to take a fresh start on a lot of the higher performance addons, and simply add them in using more rigorous guidelines.

Where can I go to request an addon get added?
Please head over to our development page, located on https://github.com/Bryantdl7/darkstormdev/issues and open a new issue containing the following
- Reason you want the addon
- URL of the addon

What about other data on the server?
No other data on the server is being touched, such as maps, duplications, or props. We want everyone's hard work to not be lost.

Darkstorm News / Promotion of Legomenon to Manager
« Last post by Linkjay on June 22, 2019, 09:11:02 pm »
We would like to congratulate Legomenon as he has now been promoted to Manager! This is a big step up as he will now manage more aspects of the server from the staff team.

This has been a very well earned position for him with his immense activity and care towards the server. Again, congratulations to him as he takes on the role of server management.

Darkstorm News / Darkstorm Remastered
« Last post by Linkjay on July 27, 2018, 06:02:55 am »
We are now in the process of reforming and remastering the Darkstorm community.

First, we have made Zafiro a full permanent manager and developer. He know has access to our servers and will be carrying out some of our plans in-game.

Second, I am back to make top-level community changes and website changes. We will be changing things (for the better!) like the entire rule set and the rank hierarchy. We can already see a few changes like a new theme on the website, and staff ranks have been changed.

Staff ranks are now as follows.

  • Owner - The big man. Bryantdl7 is our only owner atm.
  • Manager - This is the new Co-Owner. Everyone who was Co-Owner, and is still active, is now here. It has as much access as Co-Owner did, but renamed. This rank is permanent and assigned by Owner.
  • Superadmin - This is admin but more trusted and more permissions, but not as much as manager.
  • Administrator - This is the step up from moderator and shows that you are competent and done well enough for a promotion.
  • Retired Staff - This is an admin-level position for any staff rank where the user is now inactive. Mods may get this, but is not guaranteed. It goes off of each user's performance.
  • Moderator - This is the rank assigned upon a successful mod application and is now the replacement for Tmod. You stay at this rank until management sees that you have done well enough.
  • Probation Admin - This is a temporary disciplinary rank for staff members that have committed a punishable act.

These ranks were designed to streamline the importance of each level of staff without being too complicated. These ranks will be pushed in-game in a timely manner.

Things will be changing for the better in Darkstorm as time goes on. This is simply the beginning.
