For some reason the mirrors still had 1.65.

 

I fixed them and added southquarter's mirror back (thanks Brethren!).

 

You should now see an update available in the mission downloader and the version should now be 1.7

 

Thanks nbohr1more. I didn't know about that. The link in the start of this threat is 1.7 Thanks for noticing and fixing it. :D Really appreciate it. That explains

some odd comments I've got about bsp splits.

lmao. I'm thinking that's the animation of the guy taking a leak by the woodshed.

Yikes! Remind me to not get on the console's bad side, it seems to deal with dissenters brutally! ?

Possible bug?... When I "frob" the newspaper in the bathroom across from the kitchen, nothing happens (the paper isn't displayed) I can no longer "frob/right click" anything and am stuck in the toilet. :) I'm on linux if it matters (fedora 28, latest darkmod 2.06).

I've started playing this mission, and have hit this same bug.  I presume I'm playing the right version (recently downloaded): darkmod.txt gives the title as "Briarwood Manor_1.8", readme.txt says "Version 1.7" on the first line, but the last line reads "14th Oct 2019 Fixed a shadow problem in upstairs servants room.", and the checksum is:

$ md5sum briarwood_manor.pk4
1a2f55f4ccafbc66bbe5e10f16ebd975  briarwood_manor.pk4

(I have to say that TDM makes a bit of a mess of mission versioning... ?, and let's not talk about the downloader ?.)

 

I was very amused when hunting around in the opening area and I sat down to go through my equipment, and thought:

What the hell?!  I'm a professional thief on a dangerous assassination mission, and I've left all my gear at home!  I must be a blithering idiot, what can I have been thinking.  Ah well,

Spoiler

got my gear back soon enough!

I have the save file with frobbing disabled if that would be helpful, and the bug is completely reproducible.  I am also on Fedora (XFCE) with TDM 2.06.

That bug - losing the ability to frob after frobbing specific readables - is typical for when a readable hasn't been given any valid text. It happens easily, and is just as easy to fix for the author: either disable frob on that readable or fix the text definition.

Thanks for that. That is most recent version. I thought I fixed that bug by getting rid of it as a readable. . Hmm. For some reason, I can't open 

any of the readables in the readable editor, fails to load any of them. Hmm.  No matter, I fixed the problem by converting that

newspaper to a static model so it can't be frobbed now and won't cause that error anymore. New version is 1.81 and is available

at the start of this thread, and I'll try to get it added to the downloader as well.

Has anyone been able to ghost my mission? I never could, so I'm thinking maybe it's too hard on expert.

Glad you brought that up. I have never ghosted a mission (successfully), so I would appreciate a hint on the blackjack or pan or broomstick or whatever. Not really into the sword either, but no BJ I won't get far. Luckily, I just found the

coal chute, 

so I'm in the basement. 2 water arrows & torches everywhere. Where do I go to look for it? & never mind, the

Spoiler

armory

key & sum arrows really persuaded me to keep going :) 

but now the game crashed :(  I was up on the second floor in a room with a maiden sleeping. Was sneaking up to her to knock her out & it just went straight to desktop. I'm gonna restart & try again.

Glad you're enjoying it. Ghosting a mission is all about patience and learning the guard routes. When I made this
I was always thinking of how a player would ghost it. A good way to learn how to ghost a mission, is go watch V339 on youtube, he has many TDM missions ghosted including this one. 

Crashes happen sometime. I hope it was resolved next load. If not, load the previous quicksave. Sometimes a quicksave gets
corrupted. Random cosmic ray or something I guess. Enjoy :D

Updated the map. Found a bug that spoiled one room. Don't know how it happened, it was huge shadow

across one room, and never was there before. No matter, fixed now. :D Click the link below to download the

latest version 1.9.

      When I was a young man my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have him around. As I grew older I was amazed at how much the old man had learned in such a short time.
