I have a question about second objective:

  Hide contents

can it be done only in the past? I came back with the painting but I haven't done the second objective

 

Spoiler

 

I'm not sure exactly what the 'second' objective is, because different objectives get added depending on your actions. What's the text of the objective? 

No matter which objective it is, I believe it isn't mandatory, so you should be able to finish the mission without doing it.

I'm not sure if it's specific to this FM, but I found an issue.

When I try peeking through a keyhole (by leaning forward), Dark Mod v2.09 crashes for me under Manjaro Linux. I've tried this with both the original version of the mission and v2. (Edit: Never mind, I've been playing v2 all along. I just downloaded it from two different sources and thought they are different.) In the latter, I could reproduce it by starting a new game on the hardest and easiest difficulty, going down the ladder from the starting position, and peeking through the keyhole of either of the closest doors.

I'm attaching the terminal output of running "./thedarkmod.x64 +set logfile 2 +gfxinfo +map nowandthen +condump nowandthenv2_log.txt", as well as the generated nowandthenv2_log.txt. (The latter doesn't seem to contain anything about the crash itself.)

Other than this, I'm enjoying the mission so far.

Sorry for confusion, it's the one:

to look for clues where the painting is.

Thanks. I see the problem: I should mark that objective "complete" when you

steal the painting. Regardless if you have found the other clues.

You can complete the mission without finishing that objective. Or,

read the document in the safe in Addison's room.

Hi,

It was a cool mission with many good ideas, thanks. 

I found only 3 secrets but it's fine. I did 3 optional tasks.

I also found a way to get out of the map.

I couldn't take the valuables from a safe. They were there but only as standard scene items, not as treasures.

Spoiler

 

Especially the hole was cool.

It was very hard to find the flat of Franklin even though I was there a few times earlier. Leaving the green bust in his shop would have been better. Or leaving some text in his flat which I cannot take so it can be easier to identify the place.

I didn't find the stash or secret place of the person who likes to watch fire. I found the switch but not the thing it activates. I checked the room. No idea if this is a bug or normal.

The safe with static treasures was in the past, it was in the room of the lord. A jug and a set of dices.

@GerberoxThanks for your comments.

Spoiler

The fireplace secret: you have to put out the fire with a water arrow, then the switch will open the secret. 

Spoiler

The safe with the static treasures: another player found this bug too. It seems to be intermittent - it works for most players. Try closing the safe and opening it, that might fix it.

This sometimes happens in other missions as well, not only in safes, but also in cabinets and boxes. At least for me, closing and reopening the lid has always solved the problem.

Every 6 month I check for new TDM missions and that one has been my favorite for the last 2 years I think. I found a true Thief spirit : a regular stealing start, surprises and loads of secrets, and above all the ... you know ... whatever 😉. A big thank you to you joebarnin, and all of those who made available one of the best free stealth game available on PC.

Could anyone tell me what the

button next to Megan chimney does ? Her upstairs neighbour Eloïse wrote a hint to that secret stash I never found, despite the noise clue.

I need a hint on where to find the key to the display case for the turquoisium. I have a lot of keys , none work.

Hint 1:

Spoiler

The lowest level of the museum (basement)

Hint 2:

Spoiler

The basement can be accessed via the elevator, or by crawl spaces (crawl space entrance near the main door)

Solution: 

Spoiler

One of the rooms in the basement has a lot of extra display cases. Hunt around behind one of them, you'll find the key

      Perhaps an unpopular opinion: TDM team might benefit from someone with actual QA experience; someone with naturally and professionally developed curiosity, who is interested in how and why things work, how they break At least to me it's kind of mind-boggling how untested some rather important features are (first the absence alert feature for items, now the rope +body carry behavior).

      Bumped into an interesting piece of wisdom called Hyrum's Law:
      With a sufficient number of users of an API, it does not matter what you promise in the contract: all observable behaviors of your system will be depended on by somebody.

      I love playing The Dark Mod when it's cold in my place. Bonus points when it's a bit (or even very) dark and it's raining, too.

      I've been having stutters in Vulkan, apparently it's Nvidia Drivers' fault, so I reverted to 512 according to this: https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/forums/geforce-graphics-cards/5/505679/regular-microstutter-in-vulkan-applications-after-/?topicPage=40

      And no, that did NOT fix it. What's going on? My GPU is an RTX 2070, by the way.
