    Help on Ravencourt's Mansion

    I'm stuck at
    spoiler:
    the metal door in the mechanist workroom.... I have searched really thoroughly for a switch or lever, and even tried blowing it open with the explosive charge and fire arrow you find in the room....
    Has anyone gotten past this yet?

    I am stuck here too. I have looked everywhere and I tried everything. Doused the fireplace, the torch, destroyed the mech bot, set up the explosive charge at the door and used a fire arrow and nothing happened. I have looked in Dromed and I didn't see anything that would unlock this door.

    I guess that means there isn't a key for the wood door at the beginning. I looked everywhere but I had to resort to bashing it in.

    I also had to bash it down.... going to look in Dromed to see if there are lock bits set on the door, and then see if there's a key set to open it somewhere.... maybe the author accidentally left the key out or put it in the wrong room?

    I got this mission from the author yesterday and ran into the same problem. You are SUPPOSED to be able to blow open that metal door, but it doesn't seem to work. The funny thing is that it works for him and he even installed it on another computer to test it after I said it didn't work and the explosive worked! I was beginning to think that it was just my computer or that I needed a refresher course in how to use explosives! I guess until he finds a way to fix it, we won't be able to see the rest.

    Did he mention how he set up the explosive charge? Close to the door, far away from the door, at an angle etc?

    I've got a screenshot and it was set up the same way I had it, with the explosive right up against the door. I've tried it in a lot of different locations, but I just can't get it to work.

    I'm afraid the door doesn't work in the new version, either, but don't apologize! We're a patient bunch, so we'll just look forward to seeing the rest of the mission when you've solved the problem with the door.

    We patiently await repaired version.

    Might simply leave key on table, or lever inside chimney.

    Nice mission so far. Welcome to our little band of Taffers.

    I went into Dromed and changed the door to unlocked so I could play further, and it's a pretty cool mission. One other problem I noticed so far is that the "Get to the mansion entrance" objective is reversible, and you probably didn't intend for it to be.... meaning, when you leave the entrance room, the objective unchecks. If this isn't fixed, the player will have to return to the entrance room when all other objectives are done to finish.

    Ok so I downloaded the updated version and I still have not found my way through that door. Any one get through yet?
    I told my husband that I was downloading the patch for Thief. He said, "Good! It's about time you kicked that addiction."

    The metal door...

    Got it to open after a few attempts. Basically did the following:

    spoiler:
    Stood right up against the door facing squarely into it and dropped the Charge using the "R" key rather than the right hand mouse key. Stood well back, and fired the fire arrow and
    the door was opened but on a few inches. Then just opened it as normal. Repeated it a few times and workes each time.

    I downloaded the new version, but nothing has changed. I used DG1's method at least 20 times and I still could not get the door to blow open.

    I think 1.18 version of thief not blastable this door,
    1.07 (my version) work correctly.

    If you use version 1.18 you need download 1.4 version of
    my mission.

    Typical...

    just when something works on mine, its because I've done something else wrong!
    Still got the not really patched but says its the patched version of 1.18.

    The French version of Thief 2 is 1.18, your fm 1.4 is on the site of Epithumia ?

    tnagylev - does v1.4 fix this issue also?
