Fan Mission: Chalice of Kings by Fidcal (2009/10/17)

Recommended Posts

Thanks Rivian. I won't have time for a full loot list but here are one or two that might be less obvious:

 

That's okay, I'll take care of it.

 

Am just adding a main page for the mission to thief.wikia.com so that the loot list for it will be in a suitable context.

Is there a reason why you are adding it to thief.wikia.com and not to our own darkmod wiki?

Only because that's where I started when I saw that their St Lucia's page had an empty loot list link.

 

I'll get the remaining few missions processed from over there and write them up on our own darkmod wiki instead of over there, then keep on going with other missions from here.

You'll find now that the mission list on our wiki now includes links (using a loot template image) to the loot lists.

http://wiki.thedarkmod.com/index.php?title=Fan_Missions_for_The_Dark_Mod

 

which includes the loot list for the Chalice of Kings.

 

Thanx! I slightly improved the template (with instructions, help and a shorter parameter), but using one in the first place was a good idea :)

Ahh, I didn't intend for all loot lists to be at the same location, but given your changes I suppose that it couldn't hurt.

I think, that 2 keys on belt servant - is mistake developer. Players are accustomed to 1 key. Get key, decided is all, and go on.

And more, you saw that man wearing the key back of belt? If blackjacking servant, need turn his body to get other key.

 

How to get button, which up dome on chalice, if no rope-arrow?

 

 

Excuse me, only now find how adding Spoler.

Please use spoiler tags when talking about specific mission things. Someone might accidentally read these, thus spoiling their joy of discovery.

 

You use it by selecting the text you want to conceal, and on the upper left side button "Other Styles" and from there choose spoiler.

You can climb up. :) As I recall, climb up on top of the glass dome.

Yes, I needed to think about that because I can understand if one misses an extra item where only one is expected it could be annoying. But after pondering it I think we have to be free for AI to carry more than item. So, since Dark Mod is new, we need to get accustomed to AI possibly having several items even if it doesn't happen very often. BTW there is a key brightener at...

Then attach to belt of AI other items (potion, parcel) and player sees them, will look on belt carefully. May 2rd key is seen.

Or simply placing keys close.

Hmmm......I tried this one about two years ago but gave up too soon...this time I got farther and searched high and low for the mask but it's nonexistant! Not even file tdm_show_loot can show it...I guess the model has been deleted or something since some death masks was released at the time of the halloween contest...

No model has been deleted that I'm aware of. Are you sure you were looking in the right spot? Any warnings in the console?

It's in the

rafters above the fireplace in the dining room, IIRC.

Hello @ll,

 

first: I can unfortunately very little English. So I have to Google

Translation service to complete.

 

On the advice of ttlg.de forum I would like here is my problem with the FM

Chalice of Kings tell.

 

When I get the Windows error message, in which the speech

of the file is gamex86.dll and Doom3 must be stopped

just because a problem was detected.

In ttlg forum was thought that there was a conflict, but what I have so far

I do not get solved, even with assistance from ttlg forum.

 

Strange, is that all other FMs run without problems. So I did yesterday

only the FM Mandrasola played to an end. The FM Pandora's Box I was able to

yesterday play without any problems. Until just now I had the ATI Catalyst 11.8 in action,

which I have now upgraded to 12.1, in the hope that it CoK works.

Unfortunately, the FM still does not. The loading bar goes up

about 50%, then the evenings and Windows error message appears said.

 

Picture you can watch below:

 

http://board.ttlg.de/thread.php?postid=119633 # post119633 view.

 

I deleted said. Dll file or have moved since. Dll yes

newly created during the installation of FM is - unfortunately, has no improvement

accommodated. The FM CoK was always downloaded with the Dark Mod internal downloader,

which applies to all other FMs.

 

Well, I would like to play this FM, but I do not know what is on that, and

what you can do there. Hope you can give me some tips on what

do you still have here.

 

Thank you for your help. :)

Don't know if it will help.

 

But there was one map that I couldn't load at one point in time, everyone else could.

 

So I unzipped the contents into the darkmod folder. Open console any type dmap mapname (I think it's Chalice)

 

it'll take awhile. When done type

 

map chalice (if that is the name)

 

And you'll just run it manually. If that works you can throw the map files back into the zip and run it from menu.

Might not help but might be worth a try.

It happened to me too today. It's when you try to start the map and have german as your language set.

I changed it to english and all was fine. I can't say what's the problem exactly.

 

By the way:

When you enter the first room there's a guard standing in the light and another patrouling. I never made it past without alerting them. Is there a way? I read this mission would be ghostable..?

Creep along slowly in the shadows and look around carefully.

 

Hint:

In particular, look in the area on the right of the corridor.

 

 

Nudge:

There's a key hanging on the wall or on a table.

 

 

Push:

It's the kitchen key. Go back outside and around to the back door of the kitchen and let yourself in.

Thanks! :)

 

I'm afraid I can't give you any console errors for the language problem, because doom 3 crashes while loading so that I can not dump it into a file :-/
