Type of mission: Mansion/Estate/Horror   Story: Lord Blackgrove recently purchased a rare expensive artifact. The whole family has now disappeared leaving the manor empty. Time to check out

Well, that's unfriendly. And IMO not even particularly accurate.

Thanks to everyone who has played the FM.

Is hibernation eating memory in Win10 (I don't see how)? This wasn't the case in Win7 afaik.

If it is due to the operation of hibernation itself. You open an application with hibernation activated, then Windows will create a copy of this program so that it loads right away when you hibernate the PC and take it out of it again. You will have the program open where you left it. It can be useful, but it invariably consumes resources.
With indexing something similar happens, you occupy the system with recording each change and file activity to update the index, which in traditional HDs accelerated the search somewhat but which today, especially with SSD disks, is practically meaningless.
They are two of the services that can be perfectly dispensed with, adding the other services and drivers for non-existent or unused peripherals, which has Windows activated by default and not to mention certain telemetries and services (Cortana) to 'improve the User experience (?) '.
Removing this can increase Windows performance by 10-30% and provide the missing resources to play TDM fluently.
I have always do the mentioned and on my previous PC with even fewer resources (4Gb RAM 1 Gb GPU) I have always been able to play TDM, DOOM III and the like with a more than acceptable FPS..

Windows has always had the need for a general entrance cleaning to put it in shape, it's like a Porsche that comes by default with a trailer full of junk.

Congratulations on your first release. A huge achievement. We all know just how hard it is 

to get your first map out, but deeply deeply rewarding on so many levels. Downloading now. :D

An excellent mission. The atmosphere was awesome, especially creeper were doors opening

behind you. Loved that bit. Was a bit of a key hunt, never did find the study key or a way

into the chapel or the tree. 

[spoiler] Would've been better if it had been a little more populated, with say a few revenants. As it was,
I just turned all the lights on and ran around with my lamp lit once the zombie was killed. Mansion
mansion was very well done, beautifully decorated and detailed. The outside grounds though seemed
a little sparse, some hedgrows could've improved that n made the outside a little maze like.[/spoiler]

Loved this mission, thanks a lot. Look forward to more from you :)

Elsewhere in this thread it was mentioned that the Chapel Office Key

was located on top of the note beside the corpse in the Grand Hall.

I never approached the note until later after the

Spoiler

corpse re-animated (the note was there but the key wasn't).

Is this supposed to happen ?

 

"Just Minutes Later"

I found it a distance away beside the carpet....must have jumped from shock when the corpse aroused

My goodness, thank you, you saved my playthrough!

This is exactly the reason why I couldn´t find the chapel key and couldn´t progress with a story!

Spoiler

 

After I turned on the lights, the corpse started walking and must have kicked the key away, I haven´t yet managed to check that location up to that point!

If not for the command I would have to ghost through the door, so thank you! :)

@ddaazzaa seems several people have left

the key next to the corpse causing him to kick it away when waking up making it hard to find.

 

if you're making an update to this mission consider adding the spawnarg "notPushable" "1" to the key to keep this from happening.
