Apologies if this is a necro, but just wanna say I recently got into TDM over the new year (despite the original Thief trilogy being one of my favorite things of all time since they came out... no idea why it took me so long!) and just wanted to say I adore this FM a lot. Like seriously amazing work - and I've played your other stuff too. The second half of the mission could have maybe been spun off into its own map, but yeah, the apartment building and neighboring ones was some top tier stuff. Any plans for The Accountant 3?

Thank you for the kind words!

 

Sorry to say but currently there are no plans for the accountant 3.

A mission that I really like and that invites me to replay it, always finding new details. But when playing it again this time in 2.09 I had a strange failure at the end, after being on the train, with the credits, at the end of these, instead of going to the menu of the finished mission and the statistics, I find a screen completely black, although I was allowed to move and even the footsteps could be heard, but nothing was seen.
I had to leave the mission, unable to finish it.

Thanks letting me know!

 

It sounds like the objectives are broken somehow, i'll have to go in rewire them for the next mission update.

Thanks, when you can. It is a great mission and among my favorites. The mission as such works flawless, only it fails in the end after the credits

For if it's useful, in case the cause depends on my system, I add the specifications.

I have a quick question I am new to the game and am in the middle of the quest right now.I’m in John’s apartment and I stole the ruby from the skull.Now I’m stuck fighting the skeleton.Question is he killable or do I need to sneak past?

Also if I’m in the wrong section of the forum I apologize

All this free time really got me to explore all the missions I've somehow missed. Like the Accountant 1 & 2. Got through 1 without getting stuck, but not this one lol.

 I don't know how/where to proceed. I'm in the building (1st floor) where the broken elevator is. Went back up the vent to find the 'vent note' & back to the start, but I can't find anyway out of these 2 buildings connected to each other with the vent duct. Please help.

One of the rooms includes a globe. Examine this item more closely...

I remember playing this a while back, probably around 2017-2018 but it was long enough to forget most things about it so it was a genuine pleasure to play it again. I do remember how for some reason it didn't exit the mission after the credits back when I first played it, but this version worked perfectly so that's a relief (I need my mission stats to see how badly my stealth went).

Oh man, the mission ended on something of a cliffhanger and even promised a sequel in the credits (Postal Service). I'm curious to know why plans fell through.

A word of warning, Agent Denton. This was a simulated experience; real LAMs will not be so forgiving.

Yeah, this is one of my favourite missions, very impressive in all regards.

I tried quite a few times to make a sequel but kept running into technical issues. The mission started you on a moving train which was traveling through the snowy mountains. But there were lots of logistical and technical issues I ran into with the train. And because the train was such a big part of what I had planned I didn’t want to just throw that away and do something else.

 

I had tried reaching out to Grayman who worked quite tirelessly to try and fix the issues I was encountering but ultimately he couldn’t get it working so I just gave up on that version of accountant 3. 
 

After this I tried to make a mission which was quite different but nothing felt right to me and I couldn’t settle on anything I liked so I moved on to other projects.

 

I know it sucks to leave something on a cliffhanger. But I tried my best to make it happen and it just didn’t work out. Sorry!

All good, the creative process is such that this happens sometimes. Not like it's a complete loss, plus there's always the chance to make references to the story in other projects if set in the same universe without having to make a direct sequel (if it makes sense). Anyway, thanks for responding!
