    This is a great mission. I really enjoyed it. The story is great and will keep you interested. I recommend downloading the movies version. They are an important part of the story.

    I am always amazed at how lively a community of a 9-years old game can be! This is a unique occurrence in the whole videogaming scene. But of course, this is because Thief 1-2 are some of the best game ever made (THE best in my book, together with the UFO series).

    I will try your mission when I will have time, then you will have my feedback.

    What am I missing

    Apart from the obvious that is!

    I can't see the intro movie. I used to on the XP machine I once had but am not able to on my new Vista. Do I need a patch or something?

    OK I need help finding the
    spoiler:
    rare book collection, could someone tell me where abouts it is? Also I am 200 short of the loot requirement on Expert.

    I also encountered 2 situations where the mission 'broke'.

    One was in the laundry room where by frobbing around i somehow managed to open the panel leading to the secret shaft, but once i reloaded i couldn't reproduce the same thing, as far as i can tell that panel can only be opened by the switch on the other side.

    The second thing was that when i surprised Lucy the first time, she jumped back and back again before i knocked her out. I reloaded and this time as soon as i opened the door, she ran off and i got the "damn, she got away" message.

    Also when i entered the room, Lucy was peeping on, i frobbed the switch, but stayed back from the trap door, i then explored the room for a minute, before dropping down the trap door, but poor Nathan had been killed. I reloaded and went down the trap door quickly and managed to KO Lucy, so Nathan lived.
    Also what happened to the maid dressed in purple, i saw through the peephole, Lucy was looking through?

    You need to read the scroll in the office safe. That should send you in the right direction.

    The mission didn't "break". You should not have been able to open that panel. That was a fluke. There is a way to open but you will need something to do it. Search around the wine cellar.

    Also not broken. You are not meant to get her then. Not sure how you managed to the first time.

    Check your objectives. You are supposed to prevent his dying.

    Watch that scene again closely.

    Hmm, I wasn't been critical BTW, they are flukes I know, but I thought I would report them that so the author and future players should they encounter such a problem knows about it. After all if we don't report such things, then no one would know.

    Does the "without being detected" objective mean with the security cameras only or does that mean you must ghost completely until you turn them off? (meaning not being detected by people either)

    I fell to my death horribly about four times and will be giving this one another shot tomorrow if it isnt complete forced ghosting. (I'm horrible at that)

    Yes, I realize that. No worries. Glad you found those things. I was just trying to clarify.

    When I opened the coalshute Garrett informed me that this was the way in. But as soon as I do the mission ends saying I did enter the estate but not without turning off the alarmsystem or something.

    SirFreddieM you have to close the coalshute door, i think, there is a objective in the list about a draft etc...


    I'm stuck right after the entry in the coalshute, in the next room, mission ends every time with having being detected



    BTW Big thanks to the author of this new mission.

    @SirFreddieM - balbaro is right, you have to close the coal chute door or the guards outside notice it.

    @balbaro - Could you be a bit more specific as to where you are exactly when the mission ends?

    Yeah, after closing the door behind me the game goes on. Now all I have to do is switch off that annoying alarmsystem.

    I have been sneaking around the house for a while but that alarmsystem annoys me.

    Yay Finished!

    So is there going to be a Part 2?

    I see Vandal at the main menu, so I can assume Ladytaker is another?


    SirFreddieM:
    One of the ground rooms has a security console in there. Try those.

    Its ok, i restarted the mission and past that point now, i think the mission failed because a black-jacked guard outside was discovered.

    But i need help again, i'm in Stephanies room but cannot find the key...
