  1. For someone like myself who's creating assets, readables, voiceovers etc. in collaboration with a mapper working on the map file, I personally really enjoyed the convenience of GitHub. As someone who's never used Git for project management before, I got the hang of the basics pretty quickly. Essentially what is advantageous for me is that I can work on my own branch, adding new textures or models or xdata for the readables etc. without interfering in the mapper's work. I just update my branch with his progress as time goes on, and he then merges my branch into his main repository whenever I ma
  2. The Hare in the Snare's videos are both 1080p with VBR (2 pass) encoding, at 30fps. I set the target bitrate to 3 Mbps (max 5) for both. Getting their total size down to 66Mb for 3 mins worth of video at 1080p illustrates the merits of sticking to the traditional (old) visual style. You're right that the intro we created could not have been done via GUI animations and it was actually heavily dumbed down and filtered in post to give it an almost monochrome "Thief" feel, but in hindsight the outro (debrief) video we did with static screenshots was the better of the two. It took 1/10th the
  3. Okay, thank you @Tarhiel, That means you missed two story-related secrets...
  4. @Gerberox, Yes, it was mentioned twice...
  5. Hi @Tarhiel, Thank you for taking the time to reply in such detail. I'll gladly answer the questions you've raised. You said you found 3 out of 5 secrets. May I ask which ones you found? Thank you again for your kind words. We worked very hard on the readables in order to make them engaging for the player.
  6. @Spyrano and @JackFarmer, Thank you both for the kind words and rest assured that we are hard at work on part 2. We're really glad to hear that you're looking forward to it @Tarhiel, Thank you for the glowing review, we truly appreciate it. Would you mind answering something for me so that we can gauge our development of the characters? Who did you want to kill in the mission? Did you want to kill them because of their involvement in the darker side of the plot, or do you usually enjoy killing characters in-game? It's important for us to create strong emotions in the player ab
  7. Hello @SeriousToni, To which footlocker are you referring? Captain Williams? We have not encountered this issue, so a little more info would be helpful. Are you saying the lockpicking function does not activate, or that the lockpicking itself is too difficult? Do you hear the usual lockpicking sound and see the small latch moving?
  8. Hello @vozka, Thank you for your feedback and the kind support. We appreciate the compliments Regarding your other comment....
  9. Hi @MrMunkeepants, Glad you enjoyed the mission. Regarding the other entrance... The coal shortage in Bridgeport is a major plot point of the planned Hare in the Snare series, so the short answer is yes, there is much more to come.
  10. Hi @Xolvix, I took the screenshots on my home PC, which is not new hardware. This FM is absolutely playable and was tested on various configurations (including an old laptop) during the beta phase. You might experience some frame drops here and there in the outdoor areas, but that's not unusual in any game. My recommendation would be to try it out and see what settings work best for you. My personal shadow settings for the screenshots were as follows: Shadows Implementation: Stencil Soft Shadow Quality: High Shadow Softness: Low (slider almost all the way to the left)
  11. A really nice compliment. Thank you very much, @Silverflame3 Part 2 is already underway, and both the characters you mention are an important part of it
  12. Hi @Bienie, Thank you for the great feedback. We think alike in terms of tight, detailed FM's so I'm glad you enjoyed it. The small oversights like clipping models and scaled textures are something we might look at in time. Regarding your other comments: Yes, Hales does not speak in the mission. The standard female voices are far too silly for someone like Hales, and in the absence of a female voice actor for TDM we chose to make her the strong silent type. Hales is all business, no nonsense. Having her ignore greetings made by the other staff etc. fits well with her character.
