    Thank you for this mission, it is great, however I am stuck.
    I have found Balfour, been into the hole with 2 zombies. Now both ends of the crypt are blocked by metal doors. I figure there must be a switch anywhere but damned if I can find it.

    Hint: Read the scroll next to the zombies

    Thanks for replying Fibonacci, but there is nothing in the little room apart from 2 zombies and a red button to return to the crypt. There is a scroll near Balfour's body, but I can't see a clue in it.

    Strange

    In my version, there's a scroll in the little room. It says:
    This cup never arrives into your possession
    a purposeful shot, you wealth gives nevertheless


    guess what it means

    Stuck

    The cup

    What does shooting it do? I got into the room with the Hand Of Glory just by walking through the closed doors. Then I shot the cup on top of the grave in the adjacent room and nothing happens. Is that right?
    The grave

    I also don't know which grave to put balfour in. There's an empty one in the crypt, but putting him in there has no effect.

    I couldn't get through that door until I shot the cup. Apparently something isn't working right in your instance...

    Balfour

    You need to put him into the open grave on the surface (in the graveyard).

    Please could the title of the thread be edited to state what it's for, T1, T2 etc. I know I won't get to this for some time.

    This was a fun T2 FM. A few surprises along the way, which is always a good thing. Nice layout of the town, loved the dusk colored nighttime sky. Good job!

    This is a nice little mission, but I am stuck and have suffered one of the bugs mentioned

    I've got the hand of glory but can't get out of this tomb. but i can't get out of the room the hand of glory is in, well i can but i am sure i am not meant to walk through the solid metal door. and even after that miracle i can't open the other metal door to escape. please spoil me.

    Very nicely-constructed mission; really enjoyed it - Thanx, Basso71

    One little thing - the readable in the rooftop room was still in German (at least in my version).

    One question - what's supposed to happen in Tesla's.? All that happened for me was a blue light came on.

    Yeah, thats right, it's a kind of poem from "Constantin" from Thief 1 at the end of the game. I like this because it's so spooky, so i put it in, for no other reason . Well, my english isnt the best, so thats way i have try to translate only the important things for the Gamer.

    One question - what's supposed to happen in Tesla's.? All that happened for me was a blue light came on.
    Only blue light? No sound? Well, actuel, the Zombie should turn around by using the switcher, together with the blue light and the sound(for the ambience), nothing more. The problem was, that the zombie still turn around after using the switcher again(turn off). I've tried some but nothing worked.

    Another thing is, what Garrett says:I took the original Soundfile and cut the end of it. But i think, this only works in the german version. In the original file he says something like that: "Wow, thats amazing, lets see, for what these switches are good?" My Version is only: "Wow, thats amazing"(cut)

    Ok, Bye and thx

    Thankyou in advance for any help.

    Iirc, it means you need to find him and you need to search underground.

    That fire blast trap in the hand of glory room makes a rather techno style rhythm. Imagine, Zombie Garrett still getting his groove in that room well in the newer ages of the Thief Universe.
