    I got this advice from one taffer, try it: delete/rezise Obj/Txt16/DwoodCrat3.png - this texture has invalid resolution. And this object near from critical place. Good luck.

    My rig freezes up as well - I have only gotten as far as standing on top of the open window at the start. My problem has something to do with shooting a vine arrow; two outside and it freezes, one inside, and it freezes before the arrow can leave the bow!

    Ok this is a beautiful but frustrating mission, I am stuck without the item thatgoes into the slot in the room next to where the ape man patrols I have restarted and I have gotten a little farther. I cannot find the key to the little safe at beginning? and I cannot get the grate covering the last switch to open.

    okay, seriously: I need help
    I've spent the better part of an hour trying to get up the buildings, and only found a purse sitting beside a parchment I can't read. Am I even on the right track? I don't know where i"m supposed to be going...

    edit: part of the problem is that I keep getting thrown off buildings and walkways by unusual angles - is this a widespread problem?
    I've found a window to swashbuckle my way through, and now I'm lost in the vents

    i will post this since no one seems to want to,this is a very challenging mission for pros only in my view,at least i am playing on garrett skill and you will have to think outside the box on this mission,doing thins probably no other mission has you do

    i hope more people make missions like this,i been needing a good challenge

    also i will say alot of the area you got to access look like they can not be interacted with so be sure to frob anything you can get close too

    and yes i am still stuck but i am close to the end i can feel it

    dear god, yes it is! it feels like an old-school pixel-perfect platformer (where you have to jump from exactly the right place, at the right speed, and land on exactly the right inch) crossed with that old crate-stacking FM (requiring exploitative knowledge of the Dark Engine to complete).

    I've managed to get all the keys, killed everyone, and made my way up to Goliath's walkway but I haven't found a way to access the control panel or the elevator.
    help, please?

    you are now stuck at the same spot as me,the clue i got was go to area where elevator is one of the gates lets you climb it,but i was not able to figure out what to do on there,i was told think like a monkey but that did no good as i checked entire room already from that over head walkway,i even looked for a button to hit with arrow but i dont see squat lol,and when you first drop in floor area by elevator i still cant open that grate and i can get the crystals with 2 gas mines either,i think there is either a mini switch down there somewhere or some devious switch puzzle where you have to set some levers up and down=i hope not,or it is so obvious we are just missing it


    i love this mission as you cant over look anything or you just might miss something huge,just wish the mission was like bigger so i can get stuck a million times

    MrMunkeepants - I got stuck in exactly the same place and, thanks to Soul Tear, finally found my way:

    Hint: Stand back and look at the five non-frobbable gates and "spot the difference".

    Outright spoiler: The last gate, opposite the elevator, has a bar missing at the top - you can mantle up and over into the control panel area!

    The game was freezing whenever I went round to the far side of the building opposite the window (and it happened whether I went round from the left side or from the right side), freezing my PC in the process.

    This advice seems to have cured it. I went into the folder Thief2/Obj/Txt16 and renamed DwoodCrat3.png to DwoodCrat3.bak.

    Well, I'm in, I passed through the bars, after some pushing. But I need the key machine. Where to find the key?

    In the vents: small switch above the one of the green panel opposite pipes.

    As usual - found a way just after posting!!!! Doh. Now where can I find the key to that control panel?

    Deleting it worked...I didn't know how to resize it and after I turned the corner I could see one of the two planks crossing a piece of catwalk had no texture so I guess that is the faulty bugger...for reference it is the outer of the two planks.

    By dint of the crate can be broken plywood on one of the windows.

    First you need to find the vents. Look for the floor hatch.

    This building in SE area of the city. There you will find the key

    About last switch looks like this author's rudiment.

    Soul Tear: Been all through vents, activated switches and got goodies.

    I never figured out the goodies in the vents, but went ahead anyway - and now am short on loot at the end
    nice twist, gorgeous locations, just frustratingly hard!
