odd noises from the attic.

I just re-checked and you're right. I missed it, just like I missed the attic. *facepalm*

Secrets Not Registering

This is my first mission playing under ver 2.12. I got credit for only 1 secret. The other secrets wouldn't register.  Is it just me or does anyone else have this issue.

when you say 'register' do you mean the pop up messages, or in the stats at the end?

I just quickly noclipped through it and the pop ups all appeared OK (although a horrible z-fighting issue seems to have appeared around one of them..)

Yeah it seems to work fine - just completed the mission and the stats look OK too (spoiler alert):





Happy to keep digging though if you can remember anything else that might have been strange?

Having played this mission before, I remembered where most of the secrets were.  When I said "register" I meant the pop-up message did not appear. The sound as well did not chime in. Something happened after that point. Maybe I can narrow it down via my saves. Because I DID get credit for the first secret I found.

I haven't finished the mission yet, so I don't know if I'm going to get credit. That was the only problem I'm having, so far.  I'll up-date later. If I have to play the mission again to see if the issue repeats. I'll go into no-clip mode so I can find out quickly. Maybe no-target too so I won't be bugged :)

So I went to the save just before I got my first secret and achieved confirmation like I was supposed to. Then I quickly scooted to where I remembered another secret was, and this time it WORKED. 

So something happened as I continued the mission after that save that "corrupted" things and I carried it with me without knowing until the second secret was found. I can try to pinpoint the moment where something went wrong, but I don't think I can solve exactly what happened.

No one else had this issue, so it's obviously very localized (my problem and my problem alone). It's that good a mission, so I don't mind backtracking. 

I went back to my saves and discovered that my problem started at the Crypt. All saves after this point ruined my secrets tally. I will replay the mission from this point. Everything should be fine.

The corruption occurred after I got by the spectre in the crypt. Damn...I was hoping not to have to go through that again.

      Taking a break to alleviate burnout. In retrospect, I probably shouldn't have jumped into a map-making contest so quickly after just finishing another project and especially with my busy schedule, but I do believe I have something that the community will enjoy. No clue if I'll be able to finish it on time for the competition if I factor in a break, but I'd rather take my time and deliver something of quality rather than engage in development crunch or lose part of the map's soul to burnout.

      Working on an update for my mission By The Cookbook. If anyone that played it has any further bugs to report, please let me know.
      I posted more details about the update in the mission thread.

      Happy birthday to me!
      Yes, today's my birthday and as much as I want to play The Dark Mod, I won't until it's late Autumn, where it should be a bit chilly in my place and there's some wind too.
      For now, it's time to enjoy my birthday, if any of you want to play a great fan mission in my honour...Well that's asking too much, just play the mission because it's fun, not because of me, enjoy it yourself! 💪
