I like this mission :) It's taken many tries, but with the new pc it plays smooth now. But now I'm stuck close to the end of phase 1 (I know there's more with this size) :) 

Can someone lead me to the library? It's not on the map...

Spoiler

So, the hint is in the journal you find in the mages tower, and you need to use the xray specs to get there. If you need a further hint: 

Spoiler

the far corner of the sewers, but again, you need to make sure those glasses are equipped and on

If it was only that simple ;) So, I'm running around in the library with the floating books. What am I looking for in there? Been up the tower, sitting on a desk on the first floor of the library watching the dead go by me. Are they killable? I can see them with the xray glasses too, funny...

This you will just have to explore yourself. The readables and objectives do show what you are looking for. As for if they are killable, shoot a (holy?) arrow and find out ;)

Aperantly subtitles are supported and there is a subtitle .srt file present for the mission intro. Unfortunatelly it is disabled:

subtitles fm_root {
    verbosity story
//  srt "sound/video/briefing.ogg" "subtitles/player_briefing.srt"
    include "fm_conversations"
}

Why is it disabled?

Great question! I have no idea. I'll take a look this afternoon and fix it. Thanks for pointing this out

yeah, thank you for pointing that out. One section was commented out as you had said earlier, then a few other small bugs here and there, but now it works

how do I:

Spoiler

use the teleporter in the mage's tower?  I found the crystal and put it in the thing on the wall.  I've tried frobbing the teleporter, standing over the symbol, etc.  What am I doing wrong?

EDIT: nevermind, figured it out.

With all this talk of particle collisions, there is a new small update for Written in Stone now available at a local TDM Mission Downloader near you. It is mostly bug fixes, but there are a few quality-of-life improvements, a new model or two, and a small handful of climbing/mantling fixes that should hopefully make a thief's life a little more painless.

So, I'm in the Undead Hogwarts, and I have everything I need, but there's this...

Spoiler

...set of double doors with a shimmery, filmy shield..

..in front of it that I can't seem to touch. If there was a written clue somewhere, I have completely missed it. Please assist.

"Undead hogwarts" is a fantastic description lol. As for your question, that door is purely decorative, it was meant to represent the front entrance. You cant actually traverse it. Sorry for the confusion

      Hey @nbohr1morehow come the zombies in The Dark Mod don't have a "resurrection" mechanic to it, similar to how Thief has it?
      They're quite a weak creature as of right now, it's merely a walking corpse that slashes you, making attacking them to kill them an actual strategy.
      Would be better if they had some cool mechanism to it that truly makes them a danger, such as the resurrection idea itself.

      Query: when was the last time a zombie in a video game was unnerving or scary to you? I'm chipping away at my anniversary submission and I've been trying to gather opinions on the subject. I'm perfectly capable of lighting them well, changing their sfx, and creating effective ambience, but I'm worried that zombies at their core are just too overdone to be an effective payoff to the tension I'm creating.

      Has anyone had any luck with textures from Polyhaven? Their OpenEXR normal maps seem too washed out and give incorrect shading in the engine.

      I tried to upscale the TDM logo video. First try:

      briefing_video.mp4 You can test it ingame by making a copy of the core tdm_gui.mtr and place it in your-tdm-root/materials/ , then edit line 249 of that file into the location where you placed the new briefing.mp4 file.
      What I did was I extracted all the image files, then used Upscayl to upscale the images using General photo (Real-Esrgan) upscale setting and then turn it back into a video.
      I might have to crop it a bit, the logo looks smaller on screen (or maybe it's actually better this way?). My video editor turned it into a 16:9 video, which I think overal looks better than 1:1 video of original.
