Presumably that's Grimey's key that Biker mentioned earlier.See my post above.

Melan, your missions are joy to play, as always .)

Visually beautiful, no lags on my old laptop.

Story-wise it was nothing heavy - it wasn´t that much story itself that got you hooked, rather the way story was told - just a few scarce readables in the whole mission + the environment itself told the story, so you had to pierce it together.

Well done short, enjoyable mission.

Excellent mission! Another Zombie mission that I'm forced to love. I hate zombie missions, but yours are excellently made.

I always assumed I'd taste like boot leather.

I thought that was nbohr's job.. ;-P, but if both of you are doing that then I will make a point of telling you both when I update the missions page :-)


Was more of a joke than a rant lol. I don't like waiting to get screenshots so Nob can put them on Moddb.
This was a great mission as usual.

A truly fantastic little mission - it's got the right amount of readables and environmental story telling to convey the plot. Although undead have kinda gotten to be a stale trope in a lot of fan missions, they're implemented here pretty sensibly.

Finally, it looks beautiful - one person summed it up well that you make excellent use of space, making the map appear bigger than it actually is. Vertically oriented maps are some of my favorites.

Looking forward to more Penny Dreadfuls in the future! I'm guessing the Grail of Regrets will live up to its name some time in the future...

Thanks for your comments! Also: if it works, it's legit!

My thoughts exactly! Well done Melan! :D Headed back in for a replay at a harder difficulty.

still not done. not likely to be done. I've got stuck looking for exit objective, not once, but TWICE. Climb up one part to get stuck in another. running around in circles with notarget on, still not seeing the way out of the power station, and i don't care anymore. ending mission. not returning. I got my 700 loot and i want out. Escape-quit is much more satisfying than the given ending.
everything about this mission is GREAT until you are ready to fucking leave, which is incidentally when you are 10% done with the mission apparently.

Maybe i'm just impatient and should have played call of duty today.

Something very strange about the automatic update for this mission. If, in game, I go to "Downloadable Missions", this mission always appears as "Penny Dreadful: The Grail of Regrets" and doesn't go away even after a successful download. It appears in my list of installed games as "PD 1: The Grail of Regrets". It looks like the second title comes from the file penny__9_/darkmod.txt.

In my missions directory, "Program Files (x86)/Steam/steamapps/common/Doom 3/darkmod/fms", there is directory named penny__9_, but searching missions.tdminfo for "penny" throws up three entries, one named "penny" (with no content), one named "penny__9_" (the one I've played), and one named "penny	" with "downloaded_version" set to "1". Interestingly, while the failed(?) update was downloading it there was a file named, I think, _penny	.pk4 in the fms directory.

I'm running TDM 1.08 under Wine. Has anyone else encountered this strange issue?

I encountered such a behaviour myself. Some missions don't dissapear from the downloadable missions window even after they were downloaded.
FM's: Builder Roads, Old Habits, Old Habits Rebuild
WIP's: Several. Although after playing Thief 4 I really wanna make a city mission.
Mapping and Scripting: Apples and Peaches
Sculptris Models and Tutorials: Obsttortes Models
My wiki articles: Obstipedia
Let's Map TDM YouTube playlist: ObstlerTube
Texture Blending in DR: DR ASE Blend Exporter

End of shameless self promotion.

I had reported that issue already.
But obviously it didn't get fixed yet.
The reason is simple why the mission shows up all the time for download:
The mission-entry on the server does not stick to the standards pointed out by Tels.

By the way: did you notice that after downloading PennyDreadful all your mission-stats have gone missing (checkmark for 'previous completion' of a mission)?
And out of a sudden updates for other missions seem to be availlable?
That's a side-effect of that issue. While TDM is trying to handle that inconsistent mission-entry, it will corrupt the fms\missions.tdminfo file and loose all version info.
Hopefully that issue is fixed in 2.0 already, due to the bug mentioned in above link, that I had opened earlier this year.

Oh crap. And that explains what happened the last time I tried to download this. Grrr!

Eeeep. Didn't know that could happen. :blink: My sincere apologies, but I don't even know the cause.
