    As I said ealier, sterlino, the lag disappeared for me when I entered the spider caves and the rocks came tumbling down. It went from 1-2 frames per second to normal or 60+ frames per second just as the rocks fell. Maybe there's part of the lag problem.

    I still had a periodic freeze for a half-second every two seconds until I killed all the spiders. Then smooth sailing.

    Except the savegame loading gets longer and longer until it finally will not reload anymore but instead falls out to desktop.

    ohh god... i have a big supect now: the fog.

    i never set the fog as normally must be do.
    at the very begin of building the mission i put a little room of fog with the setting in negative value... the result is a fog everywhere in a "strange" realistic effect.

    But it be possible that the dromed put out the fog from that room and going in echoes of it in amount every second that passed.

    i have that fear.... so it means that inside the cave, or inside every close rooms, that error fog don't go in.... and the framerate isn't affected.

    i would hear the think of an expert in that.....

    I'm starting to have the same trouble as Old Man, with each reload getting slower, and slower. Which is too bad, because I just love this mission, Sterlino!

    Because of this, I need to ask for an out and out spoiler because reloading is taking over 5 minutes and I keep dying:

    spoiler:
    That awful purple lake, just after the fairy forest, the bridge and the bats. Is there a way to cross it without getting sucked underwater? I tried ice bombs, but no luck there...


    Cheers!

    keep yourself thight cause the next version will be amazing...

    ....release date: next week.

    i'm very excited about it cause i found that way to make possible another kind of shop.... that permit me to cut off 60 (!!) objects, and that mechanism don't involves any kind of lag source.
    so the game is much better now.
    And i cut off also the fog.
    i think there will be no more lag at 1 frame per seconds.
    i'm very happy cause i never thought it was possible to rebuild the shop in that speedy way...

    Darn - while I understand why you have to, I'm very glad I got to see and wander around in it before it gets yanked. This is the most gorgeous, immersive outdoor areas I've seen in ANY fan mission. Usually, it's so very obvious that there's walls and edges to the outdoors space. Not so here - again, it's just utterly amazing.

    Please take some good screenies before you change the fog, for posterity's sake!

    Cheers!

    Gar. 'nother bug for you, Sterlino

    So, somewhere along the way I fulfilled the minimum of 6 secrets objective (playing on Poor for my KO's). And somewhere along the way, it unchecked. I kept playing, figuring it would either end or it wouldn't.

    Well, I've been having the same longer and longer load times of saved games that Old Man has been having. Just fired up Thief to pick up where I left off at the castle with the cannons and my Quick Save was gone.

    Grr. This is my second time through since I had to start over and I have actual saves this time, but the latest one is with the platforms and the trolley with the ladders. It takes *forever* to get that leap across the long bridge, what with missing, dying, and reloading.

    Why would the Quick Save just disappear? Is there a way to somehow restore it?

    Thanks!

    yeah i have not edited the sign cause the version "c" has only 1 bug fixed that was important.
    the rest is exact the same of "b".

    anyway now i'm testing a new version with 45~50% of lag cutted.
    go to read my last thread about it if you like, dunno what to do now.....

    I am still stuck at the begining of this mission (i am playing on the lowest setting).
    spoiler:
    Is it correct that one has to go through the broker window in the attick of the house with the chest right in from of the window? I have trouble getting out through the window. I lean forward and try jumpin in place and sometimes it appears as if I am on the roof but I can't move, any hints?

    If this is not what I should be doing then what do I need to do next? I have achieved the loot and buy something requirements.
