Just wanted to flag up that I can't get 2.0 to register this mission.

Tried the in-game downloader - came back with an error message and nothing appeared in the fms folder. Downloaded it from southquarter.com and put it in my fms folder, but it doesn't show up in the available missions page. Dl'd from fidcal.com - same result.

Just downloaded Glenham Tower in-game with no problems. Am I doing something wrong?

i'm having the same problem (with swing too but external download worked for that one). Ingame downloader is counting to 100% and then tells me that installation doesnt work. every other mission downloaded just fine.

Maybe a problem with the link. I wanted to fix that mission anyways, as it contains some major bugs.

I would advise playing the rebuild (which is much better from the replies I got) until I've updated this one.

If you don't wanna wait, you can also try the link at the first page.

EDIT: It seems I've fixed that mission and uploaded it. Will contact Springheel.

Thanks Obs. I may be in the minority but I preferred the original (wasn't aware of any major bugs, gotta say).

They were both excellent though, and I think both should be available. :smile:

@Obs, does that media fire link you sent myself and Springs contain a newer version of the mission..?

Hi Melrief: You are actually refering to Old Habits (Rebuild), however. There are two hints to solve this puzzle:

Btw.: You are not stuck, solving this puzzle is not neccessary to finish the mission. It was actually designed a bit hard so only some people manage to solve it ;)

Attempted this one four times over now without beating it, I do recognise though that it is very well made, and to be fair I have never been especially good at clicking things the right time and quickly slipping by people-business, but it sure gives a thrill! I'd have one complaint with regards to the structure of it, with the tools you are given at the start, it's difficult to plan how and when to use them as it isn't immediately clear how very large this mission is, or what kind of situation you can expect to come across. I used the gas arrow on three guards on the first floor and also wasted my water arrows before I knew about the very tricked out guards on floor two the first time I played.
The scaling of difficulty as you approach the finer areas in the building is a very good tool of communicating how you are getting deeper into where you shouldn't be.
There is great use of carried torches and areas without blind spots, and you really need to think and use all you can get your hands on to get through them, either that or be very good at using a sword!
I gave the mission good-to-excellent ratings, even though I can't seem to finish it, and I hope that tells you just how impressed I am!

Aaaand I finished the mission. It's hard, really, one of the hardest, maybe (I played it on max. difficulty). All in all it's nice, but the lever situation spoilt it. Also I as well experienced some troubles wielding an oar.

A great mission overall !

 

The main thing I did not like: the amount of helmed guards, especially with torches. Too late I realized that they don't know how to relight their torch after a water arrow...

The main thing I liked: the amount of keys and secrets in the map! I have found a bit more than half of the total loot (including gallery), and I did not find a key to only one big metal chest. I wonder how many secrets I have missed =)

 

Also, I must admit that I got caught a lot and had to save/load like mad  :o

Glad you liked it! :)

 

It is my fist mission and it has a lot of flaws, so sorry when you got frustated. As it has been a few years since its creation I honestly cannot remember much of it and will probably not be of much help for any issues occoured. But as you seem to were able to finish the mission I guess overall everything is fine :)

This is an amazing mission, I had a lot of fun with the first part, but have yet to play the second part. I do, however have a question. I have finished all the objectives on the hardest difficulty, but finding the final painting, and I cant for the life of me find it. I've found paintings in the Basement, Attic, Gallery, and the big dining room thing upstairs, but I cant find the final. Any hints?

Also, small bug report (i think?) I had gas arrow'd the facemask guard downstairs and he didnt die (which i think to be intentional? just mentioning this just in case) But after going upstairs and turning the lever behind the statue, every couple minutes i would randomly get a mission failed for killing someone (which I didn't do?). I'm not really sure why, I mentioned the gas arrow thing just in case.

That's odd. But it doesn't sound mission specific. Maybe some clipping issue or so. Sorry :(
