Shadowhide has released his TDM FM and it needs a release thread here.
I'll quote from his release thread on TTLG.

Edit: Shadowhide has released v.1.01 now which is compliant with TDM2.0 & a few other changes (like the music and loading screen).

Here's the new download:

Just finished playing this, it was a bit abstract but fun. I had to use no clip a few times as I wasn't figure what was going through Shadowhide's head some of the time :-). Having to hunt around for things meant I dropped the gameplay to tolerable otherwise it would have been good.

A few bugs here and there, but 1 of which technically broke the mission!?
Spoiler


The end of the mission was quite cool,

will be enjoyed.

Lastly, who did the voice of the thief (Gorn_Torn?), as we should ask him to do some stuff for TDM!

Just installed it and booted it up to check it works, and I just want to say first off that I love Shadowhide's lighting.

Minor glitch: my room-mate's head doesn't highlight when I frob him. Which is a really weird sentence to write. Anyway, looking forward to exploring, but may not be until tomorrow.

That's more than lickely a bug in TDM not the mission, and I'm guessing should have been fixed in 1.08.

In the cell area there is a hole in the wall that leads to a cave and what looks like a crypt, in the end room with some symbols on the wall think secret. and not all things you see perform thier usual purpose visually.

how I love that noone is even mentioning the fact that Shadowhide was thrown out for his disapproval with TDM. Just saying...

No, he was thrown-out for his continual trolling and bad forum behavior.

His initial criticisms of the mod diminished over time and he eventually conceded that it's
generally a "good thing" though he still questioned the quality of his peers (other FM authors)...

I am glad to converse with him over at TTLG. They can deal with him going into troll-mode if needed.
He can enjoy himself and those antics over there. He's a happy bachelor but he still offers gifts to
his divorcee... :laugh:

Biker or someone... over on darkfate.ru, in the "Deceptive Shadows" thread, Shadowhide is asked if this mission has Russian translation. He had to reply that there is no Russian version. This is not good. But it is good in that I had been thinking earlier that this would maybe be a good and fun and useful opportunity to try something: I would love to, if given a phonetic-translation script, do my vocals in Russian! If the rest of us non-Russian speakers would do the same it seems it would be really cool to do so. As you can see there are only maybe 2 or 3 non-Russian speaking people amongst the voice actors. Hopefully we could pull it off? And as for the rest -- the other voices and texts -- since (I assume) Shadowhide is Russian, he would have no trouble translating and voicing those bits...

I really think it would be great to have this mission serve the Russian FM "community" well, as the FM author is the pioneer of Russian built TDM FMs; and, of course, despite his (fatigued-based? usual? faux-nihilist? ;)) claims stating otherwise, is going to continue to be Russia's most prolific FM author.

I like nbohr's response. It's the best of both worlds, SH doesn't troll our forums but he still releases a good FM we can enjoy. I love the thick covering of roots and branches, and the color definitely makes a memorable artistic impression.
