    Crap Contest FM: The Medal Age Dec. 8/06

    Has anyone played this one yet? Playing through Darkloader it just crashes to Desktop. I have had a quick look at it through Dromed and it is mad! Very funny and creative. I wanna play it.

    I didn't get any crashes. Maybe there was a bad download or something. Try downloading it again.

    Same here! I had to play through Dromed too! It's a winner then?

    Love the custom lightgem!

    Do you ever work sluggs?

    The custom lightgem was great and the AI that kept changing shape.

    I will try downloading again.

    Or do we now know who made this?

    A fresh download fixed it.

    I'm spending a lot of time going "How the hell did they do that!"

    Played through this one now and it is absolutely wild. Whoever did this, you are quite deranged! Very clever, though the sound seemed to be screwed. What next?

    If this FM is guaranteed to fail on the first download it should get bonus points!

    The author sent me an update; if your file size is 610615 then you have the updated version.

    why does it complete after only 3 medals? or is that part of the "charm" of the mission? I would love to see a longer, MC Escher-esque mission like this in the future!

    spoiler:
    The multi-AI/crate was the best part! I remained hidden until it cycled back into crate-form, threw it into a water column and laughed while it gagged (but never quite drowned).

    I heard Garret somewhere in the level going "Ohhh.... Oh! Ohhh... Oh!" Was that coming from somewhere in particular? >.>

    I replayed "THEIF 4 - The Medal Age" some 14 years after its original release: 1/10, but it's great. I love the inane title, the awkward wording in the difficulty levels, the broken objectives, the nonsensical architecture, the TTLG forum emoticons as lightgem and object replacements, and the cleverly misconfigured AIs. Clocked in at just under 4 minutes, got all the loot and completed the objective. As a Total Crap FM Contest submission, this was hilarious and perfectly fitting.

    NewDark has actually fixed one of the deliberate bugs - the original game came with a winter trees texture that was too big, so in game it would appear glitchy. Now, the texture renders perfectly.

    I guess you have to go back and update the mission to make this broken again.
