  1. So I have been playing with some different characters you will encounter in The Accountant and I believe I have nailed the Insane Guy down quite well. This guy lives in the same apartment house as you and you will encounter him right at the start https://soundcloud.com/tylervocals/insane-guy-test

  2. Remember all the gloom last year about the future of the mod? Nah, me neither. :o)

      Yes, onwards and upwards! And huge kudos to the dev team for steering the mod to where it is now. Seriously good work.

  3. Finally getting around to playing Dishonored, and I think I can see where Thief4 got a lot of their ideas....

      I ended up mostly really liking DH's visuals - parts of the game have an almost majestic desolate beauty. What finally killed it for me was (i) dull characters & story, and (ii) its overwhelming grimness. A Low Chaos game was unpleasant; I edged into High Chaos and (for me) it just became revolting.

  4. 5 games for 80% off at GOG: http://www.gog.com/high5. Includes Amnesia, Penumbra, Miasmata and many (well, 22) others I've never heard of.

      EDIT: above link is borked - delete the full-stop after 'high5' and it'll work.

  5. Amnesia is on the humble bundle weekly sale. Go get it! :)https://www.humblebundle.com/weekly

      Too scary for me...tried it once, lasted less than 10 minutes...

  6. Just done a 2.0 test playthrough of the version of Patently Dangerous available via the in-game downloader, then realised there's a new pk4 I should have used instead. Moral: read Springheel's instructions first. :o(

      Only real problem was missing textures in the warehouse (which was still jolly terrifying anyway). Will try to play proper version soon. :o)

  7. TDM + Intel 965 mobile graphics = 3 FPS! I knew I wasn't going to get away with it...

  8. I'm currently replaying thief3. What the hell, 50% of my reloads are caused by getting hanged up at the geometry :( Didn't had it that bad in memory.

      To be fair, T2 mantling improved a lot with NewDark. But yeah, TDMs is still better :o)

      My room got to 33° a couple of times...could hardly breathe. 41° would kill me...I feel for you.

  10. Horrific Gameplay Reveal? You Got It... One Particular Out Of The Many? You Got It: Constant Immersion Breaker? You Got It! Hands! Everywhere! Always! ... & I've been very critical, yes, but always optimistic as well.

      Just realised - look at 5.16 and then again at 5.57 (when he goes indoors). He stands up and the hands vanish. He crouches and they appear again. I have the horrible feeling _they're a crouch indicator._

  11. ...like stroking a turtle; characterful... reassuringly familiar... But they do a lot of shuddering.

  12. Tested 35 missions in standalone so far. 17 of them are now complete or nearly complete.

      With the plinky music & slo-mo it looks rather beautiful, but if I saw one flying towards me I'd scream like a terrified two-year old and run for mummy :o

  15. Since enabling the new mantling code for T1/2, I am no longer Mr Clatter Clatter Clomp Clomp whenever I try to jump on things in T2 FMs. Hurrah!

    1. simplen00b

      Instead of jumping nimbly onto the wall/bed/whatever (as I do now), I'd just jump up & down very noisily on the floor next to it, alerting every AI within earshot

      Took me a while to realise that swimming in ice-cold water does some damage. Never noticed that before in an FM :o)

  18. Just got the New Dark FM selector working in TG and T2, next to install Garret Loader for TDS and then all FM platforms become available...

      I've set GL up for TDS only so it shouldn't interfere with T1/T2. Started an FM & it's bringing back memories - some good, some not so :0)

      Also had New Dark FM Loader working; your post inspired me to dig out TDS and now have Garrettloader working too. Haven't played TDS for ages...
