Great work Bikerdude & Goldchochobo!!


^ What he said. Save you having to read it twice. Masterful suspense and architecture conversion. A lot of fun!

Issues aside, fantastic small FM guys! Hats off to you. Ineresting story draws you in and gives you a great sense of place and the audio cues and puzzles are fantastic. Very enjoyable and another classic!

A lot of people have been wondering how the mirrors puzzle was done, well Goldchocobo came up with the initial idea but we had to enlist the help of the coding god that is Grayman to fully realise our vision. Even after looking at the spreadsheet he made all his notes and calculations on I'm still left scratching my head.

And who knows, if GC and I feel motivated enough we might come up with a sequel.

Just for reference, here's Nameless Voice's version of the puzzle for Thief 2 (Temple of the Tides). The puzzle solution starts around the 8:15 mark. Sorry, not trying to hijack the thread or anything, but I thought it would be interesting for comparison's sake:



I use dromed a little, but I still haven't the first idea of how it's done.

Btw, is there more than one solution for the mirror puzzle in The Gatehouse?

That was a great mission! Winner of the Water contest if I recall correctly.

I always assumed I'd taste like boot leather.

Actually, What Lies Below by Yandros was the winner (with TotT a close second).

Played through again and this time managed to navigate the arrows and the spiked balls without losing health :D :D
Even managed the lava with only losing a bit - dead chuffed
First time ever - stealth score of Zero B)

Thanks, Deadlove. It's where I thought it was the first time, but for some reason I didn't manage to get it then.

Finished now. Neat mission.

Scared the shit out of me

ROTFL, that was my intention, glad it worked on one person atleast.

You can thank Sotha though as mine were based in his design.

I had my scared instance as well. In my excitement I forgot to mention it.

It was quite the thrill. After that I was much more cautious! :P

The irony of the ghost section is even after I created it I still got a scare and ran like the wind, then laughed hard (or maybe an evil chuckle) as I thought of other people doing the same thing.

  • Yes,

  • Thats what Gold and I were aiming for, but it was a team effort.
  • You did make a start on some scripting for the mission, so fair is fair.
