    Hey Brethren! Why are you talking about The Swindle Job ? It is the Wooden Box here! xD

    I just downloaded the mission right now : the readme said the mission is partially randomized, I don't know yet what does that mean but let's check this out!

    He obviously copied and pasted from another thread, but I changed it to "The Wooden Box".

    For those who finished it, I advise you to replay it at least three times - you won't believe how many things are changing between each playthroughs, this randomizer-thingie is neato!

    Hi people! Thanks for this new contest! My question is : when I unlock the box and I am transported, the game finishes and the goals state that I killed the hunter which I did not..the leave the place objective remains unchecked is something wrong or just a misposition of Xs and checks at the goals screen? (I sould add that the mission fails)

    Don't know, I beta-tested it and never encountered the problem. I think you should restart it, it's a tiny mission anyway

    What scenarios did you had ? Zombies ? Assassins ? Trapped cellar ? Teleportation trap ? I think I saw them all but I'm not sure

    Yes! Got all the loot in my seconde run!
    Enemies were numersous but it was fine! ^^

    So, DarkMax, It will be lying to tell you that I have not contribute but no this mission is not from me.
    I just gave this guy my scripts and models while it was the time to gather the ressource,
    and I have also translated the text. It is too bad I was not inspired that time because I really wanted to join, at leat, I helped someone working on his
    mission... ^^" But at least I had time to do custom ressource again for the community!

    This is a really interesting and intriguing mission. I'd like to find time to go back in and experience the different randomizations.

    Just noticed in the Read-me file that the mission title of this FM is 'The Wooden Bow'......

    I blame the beta testers

    I experienced exactly the same thing. Can't complete the mission because of this.

    Edit: I restarted the mission and played it to this point, and this time it worked.

    I just did a replay and got to a set of ladders that you have to climb and jump to get back to the wooden box Man that was difficult and fun!!!!


    I will have to play a few more time to see how many different play throughs there are.


    Great mission: Thanks to the builder!

    The same here. Got 100% loot and the skull.
    Playing the Assassins variant obviously, since no matter how often I restart the mission I always get waht appear to be Assassins. Never came across Zombies or anything else.
    Also, I see there are a bunch of readables which do not show any texts to me (e.g. plaques on the dog cages, lots of letters and books).
    Looks like I would be missing some scripts? But the DromED monolog does not point out anything missing.
    I even tried to extract that additional script file, although everything got extracted by FMSel correctly. No change.
    (some cleanup on the script folder would be nice. Don't see why there are also *.STR files and other stuff)

    So, what am I missing?

    gnartsch: Did you download the script file for this? Because I tried it without them and there were many things messed up like I could not scroll thru my inventory and textures were misaligned.

    Something I forgot to mention:
    I found a lot of keys while playing on Expert and I have 6 Vault keys in my inventory, which seems to be a lot!
    And I do not recall that any door would have been locked, so no key was required at all anywhere.

    Is that expected and due to the 72h limit or is that a symptom of things not working for me?
    I was playing on Expert.

    I had the same experience, gnartsch. I could be wrong, but I suspect that the number of keys is one of the randomly generated things that occurs each time you start the mission.

    gnartsch : It sounds you have not downloaded the scripts or installed them correctly, as pwl I tried the mission without and saw what you are saying while playing.
    Install the scripts in your main T2 directory and you may have something better

    To whoever the author is: I noticed you compiled the mission in 16-bit lighting. Don't know if this was an oversight or intentional. Just figured you may want to do the 32- or 64-bit lighting if you release an update.

    BTW, there are a total of 7 Vault Keys.

    Nice mission!

    Killed the spider thing while it stood on the plinth. How was it supposed to come alive?

    Never found the key to the Ground Floor Metal door near the dog pens and servant woman's quarters.

    Couldn't mantle out of the vat of blood - had to restart. I tried this a few times.

    I notice references above to teleporting and the wooden box. Never happened to em (on expert).
