    Just finished this one Very entertaining throughout although I was a little bit tired when I got to the puzzle part It reminded me of FMs such as Order of the Vine and Hush Hush Sweet Harlot. I will come back to it at a later date to find all the things I've missed, and congratulations on the release!

    Squirrel.osm is installed as part of NewDark 1.26, which this mission requires. Did you use TFix to install NewDark following the instructions in the contest announcement post?

    Hint: Who are you trying to stop? Look at the map: where do you think they might be?

    Answer: Go to Lady di Rupo’s manor, and search it. You will find the safe that the key belongs to there.

    Had some trouble to get it running in german but Bäuchlein's excellent translation was worth it The architecture is superb, a city to feel comfortable in. I was amazed when I reached Lady di Rupo's property and looked down onto the city, I was not aware of the fact that I climbed so high in the streets! The story is convincing and the puzzle was solvable.

    I must have missed a lot of loot and secrets though ... 2319/3264 and 11/21.

    EDIT: And yes. I liked that enchained man whom I freed immediately with my lockpicks. That poor one is surely another victim of that cruel town justice which was deadly for Argaux.

    There's a secret door in the generator room north of the plaza but I can't find a way to open it. Any hints?

    You can only open it from the other side.

    What kind of trouble? Is there perhaps something wrong in how I packaged the mission?

    I hope you made sure he got back home safely, and didn't get caught by the Hammerites as he made his escape!

    Seems like something's not right with your install then. In your Thief directory, there should be a subdirectory that TFix created called "OSM", and squirrel.osm and various other important files should be in there.

    In addition, your cam_mod.ini should have a line reading:
    Code:
    uber_mod_path OSM
    Can you check if both of those are the case?

    Another absolutely amazing mission. This contest is blowing my mind.
    The story had me really intrigued. I couldn't stop playing!
    The voice acting and the writing was great.
    spoiler:

    Loved all the unique style/designs throughout.
    Loved the plank with partial code scrawled on it.
    Loved the Anax reveal.
    The hand drawn pagan book looked great and I liked that you knew you had to go get it to solve the puzzle with only that partial note.
    I dragged the compass around and followed it to the destination, but why? Feel like I missed some super secret.
    Congrats on this awesome mission!

    Edit: I think I understand the point of the compass now, but using it early makes no sense.
    Edit Edit: Forgot about the cards! Amusing.

    It will lead you to a very well-hidden secret. You'll need to hunt a bit around where it takes you though.

    spoiler:

    Got it, turns out mine got broken somehow and pointed to the wrong direction. Spent like 30 mins poking around the wrong area
    Had the thought to start a new game and that fixed it.

    Found Squirel.OSM in my directory, but no line in the cam_mod.
    What order do I put it in? This is my current load in the cam_mod.


    Mod paths
    ; ---------

    ; the max path count is 63 for "uber_mod_path" and "mod_path" combined
    ; (avoid an excessive amount of paths, it can make file handling slower)

    ; these are mod paths that override the active FM in the search order
    ;uber_mod_path mods\UpToDateOSMs+MyGemMod

    ; these are normal mod paths which are applied after the active FM in the search order
    ;mod_path MyBowMod+.\TexturePack
    mod_path usermods+hdmod+hdmod\t2skies+patches

    Damn, really struggling with loot on this one! Done everything else though.

    Is there a reason the painting in the manor can be righted?

    Also, Is there any way to activate the huge lift next to the hammer place?

    Searching everywhere, clambering on everything, managed to get out of bounds at one point but still struggling!

    Really enjoyed the plot though.

    The richest place for loot is probably the manor. There’s several easily-missed pieces in the bedrooms, and a number of wine bottles stashed around the house. Also, in case you haven’t found it already, there’s a stash of coins worth 150 hidden in the Hammerite Sanctuary.

    Is there a reason the painting in the manor can be righted?
    Yes: because it’s hanging askew and looks better when straightened. Unfortunately it doesn’t want to stay straight.

    Also, Is there any way to activate the huge lift next to the hammer place?
    No.
