Downloading! ^_^


Task is not so much to see what no one has yet seen but to think what nobody has yet thought about that which everybody see. - E.S.

In this map you can clearly see how bad can be the TDM color banding/striping :D (it's an engine limitation, not a map issue)

Still I think exchanging an ambient light with a fog light (plus small ambient light bound to the player so you can see any textures) makes a nice spooky setting.

Already encountered a bug with the menu music - there's a typo (twis03_full.ogg) when it's supposed to be "twins03_full.ogg".

Thanks (for the solution)! Lets see if there are some more bugs that will come out soon, so I can make a fast fix for more than one. I've already forgot there was a custom music in the menu. :rolleyes:

OK, I have a bug.

 

 

 

I made it to the house and to the floor with beds, kitchen, etc. I explored most of the floor, finding the map, then returned to the bed by the staircase you come down. I click frob and the dream starts.

 

I see a tunnel, the disembodied lantern and the pick axe go a short ways down the tunnel and then I see the shadows of whatever creature is right in front of my point of view go back and forth, back and forth, forever. I cannot click on anything to end the dream; eventually, I must CTRL-ALT-DEL and kill Dark Mod.

 

UPDATE: I tried again. This problem appears to only happen when I choose the bed just north then west of the stairs. If you choose a different bed (the one at the other end of that room, or go south to a big empty room then east to a bed in a room with other purposes), the dream runs normally and ends properly. I am no longer stuck.

 

 

 

 

I am running Dark Mod 2.07 and have had no other problems other than the missing music at the main menu mentioned earlier.

It happens from time to time, I thought I've got rid of it. I will try to give "cinematic" "1" to few more entities - maybe the apparitions got in the way of the cutscene and something is going off the rails.

OK, now I'm stuck because I need a hint.

 

 

 

I've reached the point in the plot where it tells me to find a key to the cellars and that the horseman went northwest. I found the horseman's trailer (with it's holy water potion) but no sign of a horse, a dead horseman, or a key. I've searched the immediate area, but haven't found anything else of interest. (I did find the graveyard farther away, and the guillotine farther north.)

 

 

 

Help!

Wow, wow, wow.

 

I just entered the castle, but now I've stopped. I have to transfer this mission to my notebook, connect it to the big screen...and then start again with 5.1...after sunset! :)

 

Again, thank you for this mission!

Oh dear, it supposed to be north EAST, just in the corner of accessible area. I'm sorry for this misleading mistake :excl: .

I make it harder that it should be, shame on me.

A small question:

 

[spoiler]

I've got the the witch's hut, but the objective does not complete and I cant open the chest. Was I meant to find a key in the keep or am I missing something else? Cheers.

Lockpicks are exchanged by two tools you can find during exploration. You probably missed a crowbar:

 

It is in your uncle's room (the one with bloody footprints coming from it), in the secret closet, next to the book you had to pickup and read to fulfil previous objective.

bugs:


*compass texture is missing, just silver (hard to tell directions for objectives)


*during the first night of sleep the lantern and pick float through the hallway

*the text is blocky and hard to read (no anti-aliasing), many lights are tilted and aligned with player body (my weapon casts shadows across the environment) - I've seen this before, so it may be a DM issue I can't solve. someone please point me to any remedies!

*trash chute dumped me outside of the keep before I got the objective to search hag's hut, had to reload

*several sound files are missing and DM just plays a 'boop' noise (heard near hut, and when exiting)




stuck:

found a red crystal in the chapel and one in lab, don't know what to do with them.

*Red crystals are just a different light source, like a lantern.

*compass texture wasn't modified, so it may be a problem with stock TDM assets on your side.

*floating objects are as they meant to be.

*I don't know if anyone else had a problem with missing sounds during playing?

That is appears to be a driver issue, not all users are affected.

Thanks for the help, that allowed me to finish at Normal difficulty.

 

 

Clearly I got my stealthiness training in getting those heads with the big baddies marching about and nothing I could really do to fight them.

Great Mission ERH+ !!!

 

 

In my book, the layout, setting and story were AWESOME :excl: , only detractor I would give it, is the lighting, but I think that's more of a game engine issue, from my understanding.

 

Thank you for all the work put into this mission :o
