You can make the steward immune to knockouts and immortal (just give him an enormous health pool). If you don't want the player to mess with the steward until he received the neccessary information you could leave the steward in a blue room and teleport him in his room once the it's time. A bit gamey, but should work.

 

Thanks Obs. Yeh  I did that in the mission. It should all be solved now, all those problems. :)

I can safely say that in it's current form this is one of the more enjoyable missions to ghost.

Has me hyped for whatever you make in the future.


I like to record difficult stealth games, and right now you wonderful people are the only ones delivering on that front.

I hate to bring up a probably small and inconsequential issue, but I've experienced an odd bug in this mission.  I'm using TDM version 2.05, of course.

 

In the bathroom, trying to read the newspaper seems to lock the inventory; e.g. cannot turn lamp on or off, cannot use any items, etc.  It's virtually game-breaking.  Obviously the solution is not to frob the paper but I thought I'd mention it anyway.

 

Has anyone else experienced this?

 

And great mission thus far, man!

 

(While I'm at it, playing on Hard Difficulty I don't start with a blackjack or anything other than water arrows.  Where might I find the blackjack?  :-)

UPDATE

 

I checked the Let's Play on youtube for this mission; indeed, it DOES come with a blackjack and sword.

 

However, that's not working for me.  I tried restarting with different difficulty levels, tried uninstalling the mission and reinstalling...  no matter what, my TDM doesn't give me these implements for Briarwood Manor.

 

I even tried an entirely different mission to check if my TDM is globally glitched... alas, the sword and blackjack work for other missions.

 

Just *not* Briarwood Manor, which is very perplexing.

 

Anyone have an idea?

I had the same issue with the paper, I'm not sure what causes it either. As for the blackjack...

Ah, my fault, then.  I got the armory key but must have missed that room.  Then I checked a Let's Play video recently where the player *started* the level with the sword and blackjack, and was thrown off, thinking mine was glitched.

 

Maybe that was an earlier version of the mission, in the video?

Hi Carlton,

 

I've never seen this problem before with the paper. I can't imagine what could be causing it. I just checked it on my version, and I don't get that

problem. Are you playing the latest version (1.6)?

Yes, it should be version 1.6.  I just used the in-game mission downloader like usual, several days ago, to get the mission.  It says 1.6 version.

 

The newspaper thing is not a big deal but I felt I'd bring it up anyway.

 

The other thing, where I thought there was a glitch because I didn't start with the blackjack and sword...  I guess that one is solved, since the level was designed that way.  I even had the armory key and for some reason didn't put 2 and 2 together.  Yep, I'm a dim bulb, alright..  ^_^

I noticed that some of my videos have been briefly blocked in Finland, of all places, such as my playthrough of Briarwood Manor due to the music which plays in the library. Here's what I found on Wikipedia about why it happened:

 

 

On November 30, 2017, most YouTube videos containing music seemed to be blocked by Finnish nonprofit performance rights organization Teosto in Finland. According to them, Google blocked the videos because they didn't have an agreement to show music videos in Finland. According to Teosto, they and Google have made a temporary agreement to show the videos in the morning of November 30. The music videos will start to return to YouTube in Finland later on November 30.

 

It's no longer blocked in Finland, thankfully.

That's good it's not blocked now. That music came out of YouTubes library of copyright free music that can be monetised.

Yet ironically, it got immediately picked up by the Content ID system upon upload.

Also playing the latest version (as far as I know) and I got the same glitch.

Just contest it, claim it as fair use, and that it's from YouTubes own library.  You should have no problem winning the dispute. I've done

that heaps of times Cambridge.

I voted Near Perfect Story wise cause these are the types of stories I want to see in TDM. Crude and Controversial, I also loved the presentation. I had this mission in the back burner cause of the lag but glad I finally gave it a go. I would like to see more from NeonStyle. But please be more aware of the lag. Lag is a player's worst enemy. Worth playing more than once. Congrats!

Thank you. I'm glad you liked it. I want my levels to be a bit different, so I hope I hit part of that. As for the lag, well, sadly, I will also have dynamic LOD, so you can

scale back your LOD setting and the level will adjust for you, however I'll always be making levels for the higher end. However this was my first mission, and I

have learned more since. However my next level will again hit hard on low end PC's in one area but I will do my best to make it as good in performance as I can

and still hit the detail marks I want. Glad you liked it. :)

LOL I'm surprised you could get up there, that area is pretty heavily clipped. lol I really like adding the antlers, as a sort of Topping out of the Roof. :)

 

I didn't make the moon, I think it's Springs skybox
