Home Again takes place in Bridgeport when Steele returns home from the north. He finds that something terrible has happened, and he must begin a quest to find the perpetrator and why he did it.
Most of this mission is spent on the rooftops.
The William Steele Missions
Home Again is the second of several Steele missions. Altogether they'll tell a story of corruption, greed, and revenge. At some point, I'll start packaging them as a campaign, in addition to the single missions.
If you haven't played WS1: In the North, I suggest you start with that, then come here.
Home Again is available through the in-game downloader.
Home Again is ready for translation.
Thanks to the TDM team for creating a terrific platform for storytelling and stealth gaming.
Thanks to my beta testers: AluminumHaste, Bikerdude, Mr. Tibbs, Xarg, lowenz, Lux, plotzzz, and Deadlove.
Thanks to Goldwell for providing voice work for a key part of the story.
And thanks to YOU, for playing!
This is a large mission. To ease the burden on older systems, consider shutting doors and windows behind you as you go.
Some players have experienced savegame crashes when playing large missions with TDM 2.01. This problem is under investigation. Until it’s corrected, I suggest you make frequent saves.
There are a few spots where long sight lines will cause framerate drops, possibly even pauses. My apologies to anyone who experiences these.
If you experience low frame rates, please consult the Performance Tweaks page on the Wiki.
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 is disabled
Anyone having performance issues with TDM missions can put the following cvars into their Darkmod.cfg file. This will improve the framerate and stutter/chop when in-game, but may increase loading times a little.
image_usePrecompressedTextures "1" image_useNormalCompression "2" image_useAllFormats "1" image_useCompression "1" image_preload "1"
This mission requires TDM 2.01 or later.
I rely heavily on readables to tell Steele's story. Please try to read every readable you find.
Most Importantly, Enjoy!
