Hidden Hands: The Lost Citadel (23/07/2020)

Recommended Posts

Congratulations! This is a massive and enjoyable mission. Get ready for multi-part fun! 

Interesting, that this mission and The Painter's Wife were released close together. They don't have much in common, other than they are excellent (IMHO) and HUGE. A tribute to the modders, and a tribute to TDM platform that enables two very different missions.

Not a nice mission, a tunnel that explodes and I don't know what to do. I translated the texts using Google Translate
I don't know what to do thanks

I like the missions, all the cool ideas and usage of systems. But i think it needs some polishing.
The hall reverb effects are really over the top.
There is a robot that makes a really really loud hissing noise 😕 hes out side at the starting area.
The cameras seem to make alarm but i cannot hear it?
Its clearly very cool and i hope to finish it soon


Can we have more scary Zombie Horror maps?

Do you have the release version of DM 2.08? There was a crash in beta versions that wasn’t fixed until just before 2.08 was officially released.

Hint:

 

There are lots of identical items installed in many rooms.  Look out for a room with such a device that behaves differently compared to identical items installed in other rooms.

Yes I have the 2.08 version, I am not sure if it is related, but my updater every time I try to use it says that I have admin rights to it and may cause issues. Tried puttingthe game in C:/GAMES/DARKMOD but I get the same message.

edit: I have windows 7 64bit and the admin message started popping up only after the 2.08 update

I must be a special kind of dumb-dumb today but...

I have the explosive device, so what the heck do I do with it now? I've clicked on every damn thing in the base. I think...

Hint:

By removing the explosive device you have completed the relevant objective from the list. The passage through the air lock is now possible without failing the mission (=blowing up the station).

I'm equally dumb-dumb.

 

Spoiler

I recognize what I think is the electrical item that has the bomb (the device with two spheres sticking up, to the left of the airlock - the device with two displays whose pointers are wildly going back and forth) but I move all around it and try to frob things but I can't frob anything.  What device am I supposed to pick up and where do I take it, to disarm the bomb???  (I don't think it's the lantern in the room because irregardless of where the lantern is, those pointers keep wildly tilting back and forth.)

Please give me a hint before I go crazy.  Thank you!

Search for an electrical device that is meant to provide fresh air and behaves differently compared to the identical devices installed everywhere else in the station.

Just completed this, it was amazing.  I particularly love the soundtrack work in this series, and am still impressed you managed to find suitable uses for the M1 Pole preset.

I've also enjoyed the slipping in of contemporary lyrics and musicians.

Spoiler

The bomb thing was probably the most puzzling, particularly since there is a piece of electrical equipment apparently going haywire next to the airlock.  When I went round auditing the fans I thought I just being something crazy, especially as I didn't figure out how to open the fan and actually found the bomb by accident, albeit in the place I suspected it was.

I also utterly failed to get into the lock area, I really couldn't find the key.  I managed to enter the lake by opening the gate in the radio room, jumping off the roof of the building and into the water, and then quickly racing through the gate before it could self-close.

A possible bug is that one of the undead in the crypt was apparently flagged as a regular NPC.  When I took him out with a fire arrow, the game ended because I had committed murder.  I think he was also immune to holy water, but I didn't last long enough to find out for certain.

Spoiler

Was there a use for the four 'True Believer' books, or was it just interesting backstory?  It certainly set the tone well for the note from Brother Leonard.

 

EDIT:  Oh, yeah also

Spoiler

The fire elementals are quite prone to friendly fire, especially if I went down to watch the battle taking place.  I had to reload on one occasion because they all soared up to the ceiling to duke it out and left the remaining zombie standing there like a lemon.

Question:

Are we supposed to do something with the four bone pieces you find in the crypt? I tried placing them in the bowls in the main crypt room, but nothing happened... Is there a specific order? I mean, I read the readable about arm, spine, leg, and head, so I know that, but the bowls...?

Thanks in advance :) Man, this is such a huge mission!

Yes, you have to put the bone pieces in the several bowl.

When you enter the crypt, you will see a very comfortable stone bench to the left with a table in front of it. Check the readable that lies on the table. The readalbe is called "The Tortures of St. Wilbert".

This particular readable should help you.

Good Luck! :)

Yes, I read that readable.

But I don't seem to be getting the order right... Which bone goes into which bowl? I've tried several variations, and nothing happens. So I'm wondering if I'm doing something wrong... I just drop the items in, right? Enter didn't take the objects out of inventory.

Thanks a lot, Jack, for taking the time to help me :)

I cannot get this to install properly. I'm using an up-to-date TDM version 2.08, 64 bit. I've tried using the in-game installer, and also downloading it separately from all three of the download sites on the FMs page of the TDM site.  The result is always the same. On installing the mission, I get a blank Objectives parchment, and cannot proceed. I have uninstalled the game each time before trying another download. Does anyone have any idea what is going wrong?

NB: is there a way of verifying that a download has completed without corruption, other than by trying to install the FM?

OK, I have got this working by downloading the FM on another PC and taking it across to my TDM laptop on a USB stick. It seems there may be a problem downloading files on that laptop.
