  1. Tr00pertj, are you asking me to create a fan mission? I messed around with the dark engine for Thief 2 before but never got very far. I am flat out amazed at what these creators can accomplish both with Thief 2 and the Darkmod. I have a great deal of respect for the talent that these guys have. I don't think I could ever create anything like these guys can.
  2. You have to keep in mind that I am playing on Normal (easy) difficulty. There was no optional objective for me after taking that key. I have updated the walkthrough to reflect the method that you suggested. I guess it makes more sense that way even though that objective didn't pop up when playing on Normal (easy). I play Thief 2 and the Darkmod solely to immerse myself into another world. I'm in it for the experience. I don't play on the hardest difficulty because I don't like searching for hours just to find loot and I don't like forced ghosting either. As long as the objectives take me to cover the map then I'm happy. I will solve optional objectives though if one pops up on normal (easy) difficulty. But, if it doesn't pop up then I'm ok with solving a few objectives and completing the mission. thanks
  3. Yeah, I'm not too concerned with using excellent grammar and correct punctuation. Just as long as the information is understandable is all I set out to do. I write in fragments a lot. Just as long as the info is good is all I care about. They are not meant to be grammatically correct. Cool, didn't realize that. I'll get that updated real quick. Thanks for the info. I thought it might hurt grabbing a fire lit crown so I just shot them with water arrows first. Garrett must have some fire proof gloves? If anyone wants to let me know if there are any other changes that need to be made to any of the walkthroughs, I don't mind at all. It only takes a few seconds to change the information. In fact, that's a good idea. I just added a contact email to the website in case a FM author wants me to change something. You can contact me on the forum here or by email. I don't mind.
  4. Hey guys, for years now I have maintained my own walkthrough website for Thief 2 fan missions. Now, after playing the Darkmod for a while, I decided to give this game some attention too. My walkthroughs are concise and explain how to solve each objective on normal (lowest) difficulty. Since the objectives are usually about the same no matter what difficulty (except for mostly loot requirements and maybe some optional objectives)- some people could find these walkthroughs helpful, especially anyone new to the darkmod or anyone just needing a little reminder, like myself, when replaying the missions. I don't give details on where to find loot or secrets, just the objectives. Here is my walkthrough website for the Darkmod fan missions in case anyone is interested. http://darkmodfanwalks.weebly.com/
  5. Cool, thanks. I was worried that it must be something with my pc. Thanks Bikerdude!
  6. Oh, so it doesn't have anything to do with my video card drivers? It's this way for everyone until the new version of that FM comes out?
  7. I'm using dark mod 2.03. I have a gtx 980 using the 347.52 drivers
  8. Maybe it's just my video card drivers? I have noticed now in two FMs 1. Lord Dufford's 2. No Honor Among Thieves (Forest level) There are certain places like wall lights that shoot out small flying black squares like they are pieces of black paper or something. In Lord Dufford's it happens out of the sewer access building. In the Forest level from No Honor Among Thieves it happens after you climb the vine on the wall beside the large guarded gate. There are lights along that wall and they are all shooting out these black squares. Is it just me?
  9. Oh, ok. Thanks. I really enjoyed this mission. It reminded me a lot of Thief 2. It felt like a Thief 2 mission to me. Also, what was the 4th Clue Key for? I didn't even need it to finish the mission on normal difficulty.
  10. If that's the case then I don't see the logic at all. The clue states
  11. I need help with the 4th clue. No matter which way I turn those four lion statues, nothing happens. I have read all the clues. I am using the compass to aim the statues. What am I doing wrong?
  12. Yeah, maybe that's it. I was downloading to my Microsoft Surface to be transferred to my pc later. I won't do that anymore.
  13. Like the first mission, A night to remember. Fidcal shows a.zip when you start to download it, not just the listing. It shows pk4 on the listing but when you download the actual file it's a zip. I just like to have all my missions in the same format, not zips and pk4s. I'm weird that way.
  14. No, I am downloading them from this website, thedarkmod.com under missions. Try the links for each mission. Looks like the files from fidcal.com are zips but southquarter are pk4s. Strange...
  15. I know. But they are all a.zip now instead of .pk4. Just wondering why.
  16. Just wondering. It looks like FMs are downloading in the zip format now from fidcal.com. Has it always been that way?
  17. Sweet! Do you mean a patch just for the Accountant fan mission or for the Darkmod?
  18. I hope it's not just the 970/980. If so, I might be regretting upgrading to the GTX980. But there were some other people here with cards like the GT730 and an ATI Radeon that had the fps issue too.
  19. Oddly enough, when testing these missions, vsync and triple buffering on or off didn't make any difference at all. Frames still take a pretty big hit when coming across rain in these missions.
  20. I've got another one to add to the list. I knew it was going to give me trouble just by the title "Awaiting The Storm". Lots of rain in that one and my GTX 980 chugs along in the 30s-40s fps. But, here is something odd.. In Thief's Den there is rain at the start of that mission and it gives me NO issues at all. I am flying through that rain at a full 60fps. What is so different about the rain used in Thief's Den compared to the other missions I have mentioned?
  21. Hey Bikerdude, I just wanted to thank you again for taking time to help me like that. That was very cool of you to do and I GREATLY appreciate you working with me. Nice talking to you.
  22. Why does Aluminum Haste have those shadow settings below object details? I don't have those. Haven't you gone to bed yet BD?
