What's this mission?


Recommended Posts

I guess knowing that Bikerdude is continuing to use my art without asking or giving credit provides some continuity to the universe....  🙄

It looks like the original video might be lost or very buried, but here's some details for it.

Posted September 9, 2008
6:43 duration
720x576 resolution
"The Way To Black Heart Manor"

Just kidding, it works on ModDB, the first browser I tried didn't load it.


I downloaded. >100 MB, a bloated re-encode of the ~50 MB original. Same 720x576 res.

If my ears don't deceive me, the narrator's voice. ;) 

By the way, I don't have a horse in this race, and don't want to hold a discussion about it, but, how do you keep it? Let's say there is a mission planned and multiple parties are involved. The mission is on hold for years, due to people formerly involved in the mission don't work on it anymore, have gone inactive, or else. Someone chooses to pick up on it, and continues to work on it. Will he be free to do what he wants with the mission, granted the people originally onvolved are OK with it? Do you expect to be credited when the mission is done? Do you see your work or art as closed source, unless someone asks for permission to use it?

I always thought, with the mod being open source, and so many openly available contributions to the assets, it would more or less mean that people are also allowed to work and pick up on old, discontinued missions, and don't have to ask for everything. Maybe I'm naive in thinking that.

Just to clarify Bikerdude did not make the video - it is the same asset as it was abandoned 12 years ago. I know this as he has asked me about attempting to upscale the original video (which I could not do) as he is not in possession of dram’s source project. Here is the asset as it was originally published:

I understand the sensitivity around the issue, but if there is some missing attribution it originates from the original author/work, and was an oversight from 10+ years ago.

Speaking to Bikerdude now that he is aware of it he will endeavor to remove your work @Springheel from the video as soon as he can.

Edit: While it was never specifically confirmed, the asset in the briefing that could be attributed to springheel should be removed

That was immediately obvious to me when I saw it. Which was part of the reason I asked the original question, because, it seemed like an old mission to me which he continued to work on.

      Does anyone actually use the Normalise button in the Surface inspector? Even after looking at the code I'm not quite sure what it's for.

      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?
