Known issues:

  • For very low end PCs I recommend the following settings: V-sync is off, AA is off, Aniso is 4x or lower, advanced settings are simple/default & Post processing of disabled and as a last resort the command line arg ' r_skipFogLights 1 ' (turns off the fog)

Love this mission, so pretty. Thanks for letting me help Biker, was a pleasure.

I always assumed I'd taste like boot leather.

Using the Dagger must have been a pain in the butt.

A very nice mission. I too had the long black screen before the Mission Complete screen.

Only one admission, and it comes from a personal inability to do something:

Thanks for this!

Very nice graphics and interesting puzzles to solve
Spoiler

The ghosts needed a bit of listening to avoid them but in the end weren't too difficult
The whole idea was interesting and reading the various notes was absolutely essential.

For people having trouble with the lava mantling, make sure you set your game to Always Run on, otherwise trying to mantle while pressing the Run key is cumbersome.

I never had that to do that, I just got a flow going where I could jump from one platform to the next. I will admit that even I had difficultly making the route but once I did I felt I had accomplished something and improved my TDM mantling as a result.

If we think its hard in TDM, imagine how impossible it would be in T2 or worse T3....

Fantastic job on this one I tried to stop playing so I would have some more fun tomorrow but I couldn't. Man now what am I going to play then???

The puzzle and gameplay were great!! Loved the falling pillars.

P.S. I couldn't figure out how to do the spoiler function?

[.spoiler] Immediately before your text and [./spoiler] after it (minus the full-stops) would become

Spoiler


I said it while beta testing but I'll say it again: the mantling in this game is really forgiving. If you just pay attention to making sure you press jump as late as you can, you'll make it provided you're looking where you want to go. You don't need to rush on most of them either, which is where some may mess up by panicking.

Yup. My comment was for pwl's edification, since he left the periods/full stops in.

Great mission! Lots of fun, and gorgeous. Felt a lot like Amnesia in the beginning, and Bonehoard/Lost City near the end. I'm a bit torn, part of me wanted a
Spoiler
but another part of loved it just as is, with a nice feeling of
Spoiler


The
Spoiler
puzzle was awesome, I won't even begin to try to figure out how it was done. Reminded me of the T2 FM

I will say the
Spoiler
was...somewhat irritating. I think doing it without the

would have been better.

First mission I ever got a

:P
