  1. What ever happened to this? I cant seem to find any recent relevant info on it! Seemed like a goofy idea from the start, but did they follow through? I never saw the submitted videos, and cant seem to find them now.
  2. Deadlove, awesome work!!! I loved the supernatural stuff from Dark Project, this is beautiful!
  3. Ironic that you would say tl;dr. I have no light to shed on this, the specific people who know, know. I just wont let it go this easy. jtr7 had contributed a TON to the Thief community over the years and the people who drove him away are fake shallow cowards, only in it to make themselves look good, not to contribute to keeping the legacy alive of a classic video game company and its awesome games. Looking Glass Studios of course. These people who hate jtr7 are just jealous because as much as they tried to look like hardcore Thief fans, by bluffing their way through website hosting services, a
  4. I get it, what you are saying. It is unfortunate that this years long dispute has come to such a dreadful end here at Dark Mod forums. Im just saying, before everyone just blindly sells jtr7 down the river, make sure you at least check the sources of this dispute. Or blindly take a side and take the mandatory shit on him before everyone moves on and forgets all about him.
  5. I think the real shame is what the various Thief "communities" did to him. He actually offered knowledge on Thief and new creative ideas for expanding game play. The people who are most happy to see him leave are the ones who contribute the least to the legacy of Thief. It pisses me off, because J has always been one of the most creative thinkers all these years, but because a few people didnt like him, and started and then perpetuated this hatred towards him, this is what we all get at the end of it. The worst part for me, is that people like Brethren and Subjective Effect who have contribute
  6. I mean, yeah, you made some good points in your post, but when you say thinbgs like this, it kinda changes some of that, as your intentions no longer seem benevolent. Its lke a wolf in sheeps clothing. At least Vae is true to himself and believes in something greater than himself.
  7. Also, as off topic as it may be, I happen to love Jackson Browne. In fact, he is my favorite artist. I even recorded a version of his 1974 seminal classic song Farther On.
  8. Ok sorry guys, I was just keeping the spirit of "Thief 4 is trash..." alive. And I had seen Subjecive Effects over at TTLG bashing the contextual movement pretty bad, I didnt know that had changed.
  9. Just ignore it man, or pay closer attention while the posts are still there! Or do whatever you want, but the "point of doing that", for me at least, is one of great amusement. Of course, Im on the other end than you, and it really, really isnt funny.
  10. I agree, and I so wish I could do it! I just dont have any of the resources needed. Limited internet time *and* limited computer time itself! It just seems that with all the examination of NuThief, the time seems right, for Dark Mod to get its chance to shine, not because of all the ways it tried to make money off the Thief series, but all the myriad features and elements of Thief: The Dark Project it faithfully adhered to. Dark Mod is truly a fanatics dream, and I wish I could be the one to do a comprehensive and catchy "fanpage" for it. A wiki is great, but I mean more like a clasic fanpage
  11. In keeping with the spirit of the original post, and my newfound exploration of Dark Mod, I would like to say that everything is already so improved upon Dark Project. I have just started playing this Mod after watching it grow for 5 years! I know there are things that the masterminds of Dark Mod still want to improve upon, but I think the time is long overdue for some sort of reflection. There is a wealth of concrete information available on the development and subsequent horde of critical and extensively honed gameplay features presented in Dark Mod. However, all of these truly glorious thin
  12. Thank you very much for the detailed reply. I should have reloaded the tutorial and had another go. I am absorbing this as fast as I can, because I am ravenously inspired at the moment. At the same time, I have both limited time and limited computer time to check this all out! So far, I am digging this. Being able to stay crouched while jumping is something that... I.... actually love more than what they had in Dark Project. :-o The Rope Arrow action is just as good as ever, and the updated graphics for the bow is what I would have imagined that LGS itself would come up with for a Thief III. Y
  13. Okay, Ive been playng the first Mission of NHAT. So far, Im digging it pretty good. Getting a good feel for the controls, which are pretty damn good. A couple things are nice for me right away. Crouch jumping. Whatever awesome person came up with this, my hats off to you. Also, crouch blackjacking, just superb. Talk about an actual improvement over Dark Engine. Also, believe it or not, jumping up and down while leaning forward no longer breaks the lean. Pretty sad, I know, but each player finds different enjoyment out of a game. Again, hats off. It is still more intuitive for me to play with k
  14. When I hear long time "fans" fawning over the new game they sometimes say something that makes me throw up in my mouth. It is this: "Im playing with all the settings to as close as possible to the originals". In light of the obliterated free form movement, what does that even mean?! As close to the originals as possible. I laugh my ass off at you for even saying something as silly as that. Why not just tattoo a dollar bill to your forehead its that silly.
  15. Wait a minute here... are you guys saying that in NuThief, amidst all of the things they saved/discarded, and all the iptions included therein, there is *NO* permanently onscreen compass?!?! Are you sure its not just really small, and is circling the tiny NuGem??
