============================================================== Title: Hidden Hands: The Anomaly Filename : hhta.pk4 Author: Jack Farmer Date of release: 01.05.2021 (version: 1) - 08.05.2021

My framerate jumped from about a steady average of 30 throughout the map to 50-60. Great patch. The mission itself is excellent too, by the way. 😉

Yes, I recall that darksilence set this excellent db up. Back then, I contacted him and he changed the mission type descriptions for the first three games to something more fitting. However, it's diff

Version 2 (see op for download information):

a. removed dust fog particle effects for enhanced performance and to prevent game crashes on certain configurations. ( thank you @Bluehawk)

b. fixed the non-solid cave rocks in the final cave after the explosion ( thank you @STRUNK)

If you have further crashes in game during certain events, please make sure that nothing is equipped in the right hand (loot, keys, scrolls etc.). This problem will be fixed with the next release version of the mod.

Looks and sounds like a great mission, but unfortunately it won't load for me. I get the following error...

IDANIMATED 'FIREFLY_STATIONARY_ANIM_16' AT (2878 1666 - 1937): CANNOT FIND ANIM 'IDLE_04'

Could someone please help me to resolve what I'm missing? Thank you!

Okay, that was a lot of fun.  Love the System Shock 2 vibe the first couple of floors give you, the ambient music worked very well.  (By the way, that's Korg M1, Roland made the D50).

I've completed the mission.  I'm still missing two secret areas somewhere, but what's really bugging me is how to get

Spoiler

the final scroll out of the freezer.  I've not found a switch, can't smash or blast it open, and even out-of-the-box ideas like cutting the power or CO2 line further in the facility have failed to turn up anything.

...so reluctantly I'll have to ask for a hint there.

P.S. Nice record collection in the recreation area, and I particularly loved the power generator.

I'll correct the Korg mistake! :)

As for the last scroll:

Yeah, I did notice that

one of them had a key, and its resemblance to the freezer was noted.  However I've not been able to find a suitable lock for it.

Thanks, finally got it.  Yeah, I spent a long long time last night and today looking for something like that, hidden or invisible.  If you do a map revision it might be worth making it just a little more obvious somehow because it's very well hidden.  I was even starting to wonder if the map was corrupted and it had gone missing.

It looks very cool but I get between 4 and 10 fps with the settings I always use. Tried some other missions for comparison and they work fine. My settings are already on the low end ...
