Thank you and congratulations on the release!

I have infiltrated the first part of that railway thingy (maybe 15 minutes in) and will proceed this nite.

I am a fan of that menacing vibe, plus you've packed some great ideas in again - the saving system on the harder difficulty levels reminds me of games like RE IV and it adds more tension to the game.

Great work and  I am curious what else will happen in this mission!

I only missed a model. A black cube was connected to the gramaphone player.
And I had 2 rats sticking in the wall, but that has been normal rat behaviour as long as I can remember : D


 

 

Hey Strunk, do you have a screenshot of where you saw this?

Okay, I've hotfixed the issue. If you've already started a game and are still early on I would recommend redownloading and restarting :( Its a finnicky bug that might not happen to everyone but if it does it sucks.

Thanks for your patience everyone, gonna be a little rocky with the BETA!

I  made it into

the save area with the guy that wants you to bring him loot.

Shall I download the update and start again?

If its not a huge burden I would recommend it. Apologies! :(

Essentially, the security cameras are misbehaving. If you continue further into the level they will alarm when they see zombies and that sends everything into a pretty big mess.

Fantastic work.

Thanks! If your PC can run it I would recommend trying the shadow maps rendering, you'll see all the new volumetric fog stuff!

For me the security camara's worked as they should. I got the update from the installer plus I compiled the source code a few days ago.
Btw, I could headshot (with broadheads) the "undead"(didn't try the ones in the silo) but I guess that's delibarate (in easy mode).

Will do, forgot to switch it on (I thought I already had switched it on).

Regarding the bug you mentioned, you are right:

Spoiler

In my run  with the previous version I had almost all zombies (those outside the building and those inside the caves) standing in front of the respective cameras. Inside the building there had been at least 10 - 15 (!) of them circling around one camera. I thought this was a special challenge for the player to find some sort of explosive to blow them all away! :)

This, of course, broke all patrols. The AI behaviour in version 2 is correct; the zombies patrol along the designated path nodes.

I am now inside the pyramides (or whatever that is) and saved for the very first time inside the storage room.

I hope I can find all the loot I found in my previous run until this particular point in the mission.

This mission reminds me on two games:

Spoiler

1. The Dark Project mission "Horn of Quintus"

2. Tomb Raider IV: The Last Revelation

 

This mission also includes very cool models. I probably will get back to you someday and will ask whether I can use some of them in one of my next mission! :)

A somewhat atypical little mission, but entertaining with some interesting and new models. But the end is perhaps unresolved, when entering the road to Northdale at a point on the tracks the screen went dark, but I could continue walking with the black screen and it took a long time until the mission finally finished.
Other than this I have enjoyed it.

      Turns out my 15th anniversary mission idea has already been done once or twice before! I've been beaten to the punch once again, but I suppose that's to be expected when there's over 170 FMs out there, eh? I'm not complaining though, I love learning new tricks and taking inspiration from past FMs. Best of luck on your own fan missions!

      I wanna play Doom 3, but fhDoom has much better features than dhewm3, yet fhDoom is old, outdated and probably not supported. Damn!
      Makes me think that TDM engine for Doom 3 itself would actually be perfect.

      Maybe a bit of advice ? In the FM series I'm preparing, the two main characters have the given names Toby and Agnes (it's the protagonist and deuteragonist, respectively), I've been toying with the idea of giving them family names as well, since many of the FM series have named protagonists who have surnames. Toby's from a family who were usually farriers, though he eventually wound up working as a cobbler (this serves as a daylight "front" for his night time thieving). Would it make sense if the man's popularly accepted family name was Farrier ? It's an existing, though less common English surname, and it directly refers to the profession practiced by his relatives. Your suggestions ?

      Looks like the "Reverse April Fools" releases were too well hidden. Darkfate still hasn't acknowledge all the new releases. Did you play any of the new April Fools missions?

      Hope everyone has the blessing of undying motivation for "The Dark Mod 15th Anniversary Contest". Can't wait to see the many magnificent missions you all may have planned. Good luck, with an Ace!
