Really like the design of the level, especially the manor and the use of modules. I'm still working through

it. Here's some of the things I've noted so far that you might want to look at in next update:

I have one massive complaint.

 

This mission has made waiting for part 3 so much worse :)

Oh, also I really enjoyed some of the small, thoughtful details, like when you took the vase and the flowers and dirt spilled on the table! :)

Really liked the whole idea of this, it's small but very well done. Thanks for the experience Goldwell. Who did the voice acting

for the guards in the sewer?

I enjoyed this mission on 2.06 with soft shadows. There where some graphics glitches that i attribute to 2.06 beeing beta. It still was a fantastic experience.

 

Minor findings follow:

After playing the two pre-packed missions (A new job and The tears of St. Lucia) and the short Bakery job, this was actually my fourth mission I played in TDM.

 

Simply WOW.

The map design is really very nice (maybe just a bit too linear - it's impossible to get lost or have difficulties to find the right way - but still beautifully designed).

Exteriors and interiors are simply marvelous....really a masterpiece. And when I saw the raindrops....oh my...

 

The whole mission is relatively easy (from my n00b perspective), the only time I got stuck was - how to get to the main objective?

But after some trying and thinking (well, LOT of trying and consecutive thinking) it was so easy.

I had lot of fun, didn't use any spoilers...and appreciate the balanced puzzles (not baby-ish easy but not too hard to discourage).

 

The BLAME:

This mission has a very strong story behind which makes it VERY attractive.

There are lot of surprises and logical consequences during the play.

But - as many said before - after finishing the mission I still have (much) more questions than answers.

I was dragged into the story and now I demand the answers!!!

:-)

 

Many thanks, Goldwell.

Thanks for the kind words! 

 

Work on the accountant 3 is already underway, which will hopefully provide some answers to your curiosities :)

Great mission, kept the sewer idea and the windows with the water shaders from the original Accountant 1, but added a lot more depth and detail.

Sorry you're having to deal with that!

 

As a Windows 10 user myself I am pretty sure there is a mandatory fall update that has been rolling out over the past few weeks. After doing a quick google search it seems that some people have been having issues with the update too. Perhaps it tried to install in the background and windows had to stop a service to update it while TDM needed it which could have caused the odd issue you experienced.

 

I would recommend restarting your computer, if TDM still fails to run, try running the updater and that will redownload any files that aren't matched to what the official version is (that might solve any issue of corrupted files if that's what has happened).

 

Let me know if you get working.

Thanks Goldwell , do believe it is these mandatory updates which have caused it.Thanks Windows!
Will proceed along the lines you suggest and also restore Windows to the point before the wretched update.Nothing at all to do with the mission which I am enjoying immensely!
