Well, if he's gotten the rare spice, down at the bottom, follow the track where the burning burrick is. You can jump onto a ledge to avoid him, wait for him to pass, the continue onward. I played on hard BTW.
congratulations on the release! I really like the architecture of the ruins at the beginning, so often (even in the OMs) they were just off-kilter rectangles, but these look like buildings that actually sunk into the ground... in the mines, what is the purpose of the metal tram that goes across the lava flow?
finished with 2/3 secrets!
so in part 2, where is the key for the West Gate? the information about Crooked Town?
also, is it possible to get into the police station, the church, or Chancey's dining room?
I was holding out for a better deal on the angel, but I guess I'll have to accept the 20g, or however little it is since this guy's the only game in town. odd that he paid me before I gave him the angel
Congrats on the release! Will be playing it soon.
I'm trying to find the west gate key myself. I can answer for MrMunkeepants, the information about Crooked Town. Where the mech beast is, there is another gate by him, look around that area, carefully.
I am also stuck Trying to find the West Gate Key which I think is in the Police Station. I can see guards in the upstairs windows. I can open one of the inside doors from the outside front door but I still haven't found a way in. I also need to pocket one more purse from a police guard and the only ones left are inside that station
I finally found a whole area that I didn't explore. As usual I find a door early on that I need a key for and forget all about it as I progress through the mission. Almost done now. This was a very good mission.

bedwine & Broken Arts - In the area with the very tall buildings / very long drops (north of where the thief lives at the top of all those ramps) head to the n-e & work your way down the other side of a gate. Go through a metal door there & basically 'follow your nose' until you find a lift at the end of a crooked tunnel. And, yes, the West Gate key is in the Police Station.
That construction with the thieves' house at the top was remarkable - don't think I've ever seen anything like that before.
Really enjoyed romping through this one in mission 2, in particular, just kept finding more & more areas to explore: always like this & it reminded me a bit of bbb's Three Crowns in that regard.
(I'm very much hoping this will break me out of the damn burn-out I've been suffering !)
There were lots of inaccessible places, but I figure you went as far with it as you wanted / were prepared to.
Thanx very much for this fun mission & very sorry to here that this is your last FM - then again, who knows what the future will bring?

so do you mean "from the top of the ramp, go NE?" that puts me behind the armory & police station, and the only gate goes behind the warehouse. I don't see any tunnels back there. can you give a more direct hint/plain old directions?
MrMunkeepants - the place I referred to is a long way from the Police Station & Warehouse area. Basically, head west up the ramp from that area & look for a tunnel entrance on the south side - very hard to describe after that; just keep exploring, & you'll eventually loop back to the Police Station (as hard as that may be to believe at times ).
okay, I thought that was the wrong area. I'll need to check the tunnel out again. down that way is a town, a park, and the abandoned construction site I mentioned earlier.
in case I can't find it, where do I need to look?hey, that sewer lid is frobbable. now let's go see about some... oh. ramps. when you said "theif," I thought you meant "fence." obviously not
this is a very nice pair of missions, Ricebug, it would be a shame it they really were your last. unless you're moving over to Dark mod, in which case; go have fun!

Errr...I'm still stuck on mission 1...where is the evidence to who killed the mother and daughter?
Glad you found your way, MrMunkeePants - wasn't looking forward to attempting to describe that
I'm stuck with no way out! I read the warning sign and expected a fast ride, but the boat moves slow as a burrick until it bumps into the cave wall. There's no way out from there that I can find. I can't go back through the gate because I don't have a key - I got in by climbing and jumping.
I was barbequeing burricks last night! I made a little noise to try and draw the pagans into an area of dark shadow, and the burricks went nuts! One of them trampled a pagan, then pushed another on into the fire, and got roasted himself in the process along with the third one who also got trapped in the fire. Sure made my job easy! Good thing we can't smell the stuff in Garrett's world.
During testing we found that the Bounds Trigger which activates the boat was sometimes unreliable. That's why I posted the "quick save" sign. If all other objectives are done, jump into the boat. If it doesn't move, try crouching and moving a bit forward. It should then begin to move.
I tried to avoid the Bounds Trigger by adding a button on a post, but this looked too cheesy.
This has been a really fun FM Ricebug. So many different elements to it. I love it. Well done, loads of fun to play. I hope someday you may consider taking on dromhead again, or dark mod. We love your FM's.
I'm on my way again, this FM is like the energizer bunny, it just keeps going and going.
I've updated Crooked Town to version 2. The Russian files were all dorked up. D/L here.
Finished the mission, that was a lot of fun! Loved all the different areas. Well done Ricebug, thanks for all your hard work through out the years.
Thank you for digging up the opera fellow, he has been sorely missed over the years.
Sadly he seems to be forgotton by most people.
It's so easy, but I can't do it.
So risky - but I gotta chance it.
It's so funny, there's nothing to laugh about
Ricebug please do not say it is your final FM.(even if it is so)
It sounds so... final!
So finished Mission 1
but I am missed 1 secret
I searched the whole Mission several times ............ but still 2/3 secrets
the chest in the underwater town area
and the speed poison above the hills in the village
Can anyone please tell me where the last one is ???
