    I would like to play Mine Shock for Thief 1 on NewDark 1.27. I downloaded all DMLs by voodoo47, but the dml for Mine Shock does not seem to be in the archive. Am I missing something?

    With this mission these is no dml, Voodoo got permission from JIS to fix Mine Shock and made a new miss20.mis file.

    Looks like Voodoo has deleted a number of fixes from his repository since he released the latest TFix that includes FMdml package, but it looks like FMdml loads the new miss20.mis file for this mission as it is included in his FMdml release notes.

    Here's a copy of the good miss20.mis file. Extract this new miss20.mis file from it's zip and replace the bad miss20.mis file in Mine Shock folder.

    Only put in TG/FMSel/Mineshock folder or replace the miss20.mis file in your Mineshock FM folder and then reinstall Mine Shock patched with the good miss20.mis file

    Do NOT place it in your TG main Root folder.

    You are awesome, fortuni! With voodoo47's modified miss20.mis file, I am able to play the mission without crashes on NewDark 1.27.

    Just wanted to note two corrections to my mission Shadows of Northdale Act 1

    "The first mission in a trilogy by Goldwell is a small, but superbly designed, thieves highway FM that has you investigating the murder of a neighbour, Jordan Rivington. Using rooftops, vents, ledges and apartments to clamber all over the map, you'll also find 7 secrets, some of which are very well hidden."

    It's the first mission in a five part campaign.

    Also it's Jordan Wiverton.

    That is all

    Help required

    I could do with a TDM fan giving me some help with the Brief Summaries. I started this thread all the way back in July 2017 and have kept it up to date with all the Thief missions, but I have never been a huge fan of TDM and have not had the time or sadly the inclination to play any of the TDM missions since July 2018 as all my spare time since then has been taken up with fixing all the older T2 missions with dml's.

    So this is a big shout out for any of you TDM fans who would like to make a small but important contribution the the thieving community by taking up my slackness and writing short and concise brief summaries for the 10+ missing TDM missions that I have never played and any future missions yet to be released.

    If anyone would like to help me keep TDM mission up to date please let me know, it shouldn't take you long to write these brief summaries but a passion for the game is essential in order to avoid repetitive and bland entries, a trap which I suspect I would fall into if I tried to catch up with the missing entries.

    This does not have to be taken up by one person only, if 3 or 4 people were to help out, intermittently sending me comments that I could add to the Brief Summaries, that would work just as well, and being a mission author yourself doesn't exclude you, even from writing a Brief Summary for your own mission, so long as it's fair and reasonable. After all this is not a competition thread, it's just one to give other players a flavour of what to expect in a mission.

    Thanks in advance

    Missing entries AFAIK
    William Steele 4: The Warrens, Mission of Mercy, The Night of the Reluctant Benefaction, Hidden Hands: Initiation, Cleaning up the Neighbourhood, Shadows of Northdale: Act 2, Marsh of Rahena, William Steele 5: Commerce Bank, CoS2: A Precarious Position, Hidden Hands: Vitalic Fever, The Heart of St. Mattis.

    Carneval (T2, Demo) is on the list, but Bruder Snuck (T2, Demo) is not.

    Down in the Old Vault was released in 2019.

    Yes it was, but I had spelt in Bruder Snack, but was suitable misspelling as is only a bite sized mission.

    With all the T2 dmls now included in as an optional extra with T2Fix up to and including 2006 (2007 dmls will included within a couple of months hopefully), is there any need for me to continue adding the individual dml links to their respective entries in the Brief Summaries tables.

    I would be particularly interested to here the opinion players who load the dml's manually or are most players now relying on T2Fix and the FMdml option.

    I'd generally prefer to install dmls manually, but not really for any principled reasons. I wasn't actually aware of FMdml until just now! I have been searching individual mission threads for dmls. That said, I think your brief summaries index is invaluable, and the dml links are definitely a useful addition to it.

    I would be really happy if you would continue putting links to dml fixes in Brief Summaries thread. I'm using Tafferpatcher and yes, I could install T2Fix. But I don't see the point for that. T2Fix is still young, so bugs still pops out. Tafferpatcher isn't perfect either, but for me it's more compatible than T2Fix currently is. For example: I had no technical problem with any of T2 Anniversary missions, but I saw comments from people using latest T2Fix about scripts not working correctly.

    The first thing I do when trying a mission, I check Brief Summaries thread for some info about fixes, then I check what this fixes change. Sometimes dml fixes don't change gameplay, only look. Sometimes they prevent from mantling to some places. And I prefer to have every advantage in the mission, even if it's not intended. Besides I want to have a choice if I want to install dml fix or not.

    Thanks for feedback guys, will carry on posting most links in BS thread.

    Just to let you know as only Jax is now making dml's I will not be reporting minor misplaced objects to him any more as they are fiddly to fix and they require very precise work, so is unreasonable to ask one man to spend too much time on such minor issues, but we will carry on fixing glaringly obvious misplaced objects that just look stupid. However if it's only one or 2 misplaced objects fixed I may choose not add that dml to the BS thread, but I will carry on adding all game breaking issues, end game stats issues, fix secrets and objectives etc.

    @Galaer
    Jax would be interested in any reported scripts issues with regard to T2Fix.

    The latest T2Fix 1.27b has to many updated scripts to mention and even some fixes for recently discovered ND issues, whether the reports you saw were related to 1.27b or earlier could be significant.

    I also very much appreciate having the .dmls linked in the mission descriptions in this thread. I like to experience the missions as close to the original as possible, only applying absolutely necessary fixes. The information this thread gives me is invaluable in that regard.
