    hmmmm...I didn't have to join anything. I simply had to enter a code, wait a few seconds, and then the download link was presented to me. It downloaded OK and installs/plays just fine.

    Look again...I didnt have to join. I thought so to at first with the big download manager add. Just enter a code in the box center upper screen. I also had to drop my fire wall for a few momments to be able to make it work.
    I almost missed it to

    Thankyou Dr. Sneak. I needed this after playing Vivisector and other FPS games for days. I need a more relaxed game.

    Stuck already !

    How do I get into the Hammer area? Am I supposed to ? I found no Trespassing signs and I can see Hammer guards but there is gates blocking every way I can find in their direction.

    On dial up. Just did a test resume from the original site and it worked. Getting really good download speed. May be the European thing. I only get 2 hours connection at a time so I'll wait till there is an estimated 1hr 50 left then try disconnecting and resume. It that works then I'm in. If not then I'll try the other link Sluggs, thanks. But I'm back with Opera now as my main web browser. I had trouble before with Citadel but I think I was still using Firefox then.

    Mind you, Dirty Business has to compete with Oblivion which I'm also playing at the moment. Ha Ha!

    Keep talking, keep talking, are we there yet? Almost, now shows 1hr 59 left. I'll give it another 10 minutes then disconnect. Must have some extra to allow for a drop in download speed. If it works I can go and have a long breakfast while it continues...

    [EDIT] 2 hours later... Got it!

    Well, this mission is great! I loved the industrial areas, and playing through Cragscleft again was a blast! I enjoyed all the exploring down there.

    I instantly recognized Otto's objects and his multibrush.

    I was hoping that the teleport-looking thingy was going to work and take me somewhere new, but alas, it did not.

    Final stats:

    Difficulty: Crook
    Total Time: 1 Hour, 2 Minutes, 18 seconds
    Found 1237 Loot out of 1952

    Excellent mission, Dr Sneak!

    Good to see that everyone is enjoying it.

    spoiler:
    There is no accessible Hammer area in the mission, when I added the extra underground areas it would crash so I cut it to smooth things out, besides the fact the best parts of the story were down below.

    Very good balance for stealth. Only KO'd one guard and that was an accident. He walked into my cosh while I was cleaning it. Scarcely recognize the mines because back then I had a gamma problem and it was pitch black in places. Now I have a backlit flatscreen and it's the opposite with no true black at all. Still managing to get lost though.

    Well, been playing all morning I think. Have to break for dinner and continue later.

    Nice mission, I liked it.
    I also thought there is the possibility to
    spoiler:
    activate the portal, but I think this is another story.


    Maybe there is a clue for a sequel:

    Well, 'finished' and got out back home but not via the 'north gate'. Went back in again and all the way through the mines but never did find the north gate. I'd be interested to hear just where it is. I wanted to get out through the time gate thing which would have rounded it off nicely.

    But enjoyed it and particularly the stealth and especially timing and dodging the watchers This FM is do-able without beng seen or KO-ing a single AI (though I did a couple then realized I didn't need to.) Good one Dr. Sneak!
