    I'm really hoping for a detailed walkthrough on this one at some point - and it would be great if authors would take the time after creating a mission this incredible looking and technically impressive to make even a simple walkthrough to help those of us that want to enjoy the mission to its fullest but may not have the time to run around the entire castle doing trial and error hour after hour

    Mission X and Rose Cottage are the same way. Beautiful, complicated and in need of a walkthrough at release so everyone can enjoy After putting so much work into a mission, it still surprises me that they are absent from new mission releases.

    quakis, there is a clue. In Anger's apartments. It's a list of persons you have to check. You should know where to find them... she...

    I can't figure out what to do with the music lock in Anger's apartment. I enter the combination DHFG and nothing happens.

    There's three: in the parlour, in the shoe closet and in the Music Hall.

    Clueless in stable on Largo difficulty:
    I got past the wedding cut scene and got the stable key. Now i'm supposed to trap the doctor in the stable somehow, but i have no clue what to do. I have found the shoe polish and when i apply it to the horse the doctor comes along, but then what?

    The ominous portent in the conservatory was a nice touch, also.

    Lock the good doctor in while he's distracted. But relieve him of his possessions first. Remember, he has a stable key, too.

    Shadows, you mixed wedding and premiere, two different events. You're talking about premiere.
    Well, you've seen one alternative end. Now find another green Score book (different locations on different diff. levels - check both library and King's study), go back to Anger's apartments and place this book on the stand where the score was.
    Also, how to trigger conversation between King and doctor:
    You've seen the secret door in the passage. The switch is on the ceiling, close to the lamp.
    Enter there BEFORE you get the valet's key.

    Stuck. Once again.

    I really can't do this mission without someone holding my hand. All I do is run around after getting one tiny step further, clueless. Trapped the doctor in the stable. Went to his study. Found documents about the King's madness. Saw some yellow liquid but it does nothing. Still have no idea what the switch in the attack did. Found two music notes (Parlour/Shoe Room) Can't find any other music notes in the music room. Don't have a clue what the candle key does. Throne/Wedding room only has a statue that moved when I approached it on the lower floor. Otherwise - nothing that gives me a hint as to what I should be doing next. Other than the 'Verse' readable, but even that doesn't help.

    spoiler:
    The third sheet of music is indeed in Singer Hall (room 31). Keep looking. By the way, do you have any rope arrows left?

    spoiler:
    The good Doctor put a lot of effort into collecting that condemning evidence against the king. It'd be a shame if something unfortunate were to happen to it ....

    spoiler:
    The candle key opens a cabinet in the King's study (room 21), near where you found it. It reveals an additional clue regarding the Throne Hall.

    You wouldn't believe how many locks I tried before I remembered that #@&% cabinet.

    spoiler:
    The yellow liquid will only prove useful after you solve the Throne Hall puzzle.

    Hence the reason I wish authors would start including walkthroughs with their mission releases I feel the same way with this mission - its beautiful, impressive and I'm immersed in it.. but I spend far too much time running around trying to figure out what I do next or what changes events have caused.

    @Dainem and anyone else using Win7 32bit and having problems:
    In The Editor's Guild, Sensut has reported that enabling WinXP SP3 compatibility mode on Thief2.exe seems to fix issues with NVScript not working properly in Win7 32bit OS. I haven't read through this thread in detail as I don't want to spoil the mission for myself, so don't know if it's been mentioned here yet, but thought I should post this info here.


    @Moderators: If we continue to get evidence supporting this workaround, we probably will want to add it to the FM FAQ.

    Yeah, the mission looks great but the gameplay is, personally, very fustrating. I'm thinking about putting this on hold for a while - I'm not sure. I've also messed up my later saves and got myself in a really sticky situation. I have an older one which is before the music scene so I might restart from that point so that the guards aren't getting in my way so much after the murder. It's very difficult to avoid having to blackjack every one at that point.

    I skulked around in this castle for just over seven hours. The frustration level was certainly high, so I can't say that I enjoyed every minute of it, but I felt insufferably pleased as I eventually solved each puzzle and surmounted every obstacle.

    Only managed to find four secrets, though.

    Having played Gabriel Knight 2: The Beast Within over a decade ago, I was amused by the many nods to that earlier game.

    Favourite unintentionally-creepy moment:

    I'd been coshing people all night, hiding their bodies in convenient dark places, as I am often wont to do. At one point, I found myself back in the Doctor's quarters, and suddenly realised that the comatose guard I'd dumped in the bathroom was no longer there. I can only assume that he'd simply woken and redeployed when Harold mobilised the guards to search for Anger.

    Wait till you check out the elevator. Must have hurt the guy.

    I'm completely out of ideas as far as where to go next...
    I just left Anger's secret underground lair, switched the score, and came face to face with the guy (only to find that he is immune to broadhead arrows to the back of the head). I'm assuming the next place I have to go is the chapel, but I can't find where it is. I'm pretty sure I've tried every key in my possession of every locked door in the level...little help here?

    I should also probably mention that I never found any "candlestick key". Where was I suppose to find it?

    The Candlestick key is in the kings study on the lowest difficulty (which is what im playing) - check the map to find the room marked "Study" and you'll find it in the chandelier. Lord knows where its used, however - as I'm stuck there myself.

    If someone could tell me where to use the candlestick key and outright spoil it I'd be thankful - my patience with this keyhunt is unfortunately wearing thin

    Also Mike, the chapel is marked on the map as well, its in the Kings quarters where you meet Gabriel for the first time.

    Exact same room, the cabinet to the right of the desk.

    Wait...map? Am I the only one who just gets a blank splash page when they press the "map" key?

    Of course he's immune to your broadheads ... they're not silver.

    Maps can be found in the engineer's quarters in the East Wing, near where you started.

    Yes - in the room with the mouse on a wheel you should find a map on the shelf. Again, I'm playing on the lowest difficulty so your mileage may vary.

    Thanks for the answer quakis!

    Stuck in a different spot now - I've
    spoiler:
    swapped the score and now its time to watch the presentation. I've gotten into the attic area and got the tinderbox with flares or whatever you find in that room with the spiders and I can't figure out how to see the presentation without being noticed.
    I've combed the attic area a half dozen times but still can't figure it out.
