    T2FMDML: A Collection of NewDark Thief 2 FM Fixes

    As a result of the many reports of particular fan missions exhibiting issues in a NewDark environment, there have been efforts to improve compatibility with these missions; however, the manner in which these fixes are presented can make it difficult for average users to correctly apply them.

    T2FMDML is a collection of both preexisting and entirely new fixes for many older Thief 2 fan missions that have known issues with NewDark. It is currently included in the latest release of T2Fix, but can also be obtained in a standalone form here if so desired. This archive was complied through the combined efforts of members fortuni, Unna Oertdottir, and myself following a discussion on the matter and vital work by member voodoo47.

    These fixes were developed in a T2Fix environment and are thus recommended to be used in such, though will likely function in other environments provided the newest script modules are used. This package will continue to be updated as new fixes surface.

    T2FMDML currently addresses issues in the following fan missions and campaigns:

    Excellent work. I'd long ago accepted that many older missions were just not going to work correctly ever again, but yet here we are!

    Amazing work guys - I am one of those who did struggle a bit trying to work out what to do, so all this now being part of T2Fix is a godsend.

    gam.dml not showing in FMs folder

    Could you please tell how to install using thief 2 fan mission selector? When i install a mission the gam.dml does not show in the FMs folder example C:\games 1\Thief 2\FMs\bathhouse.

    You do not install using FM selector, placing in FMs folder or any other thief folder (unless manually installing).

    FMdml is a package that is now included in T2Fix.

    Download the latest T2Fix, link above, and tick the 'Thief 2 FM Fixes' box in the options box. The FMdml package will automatically apply all fixes (including any .gam files needed) to their respective missions.

    Ps. You won't see any .dml or .gam file installed by FMdml in any of your folders, it's all done via T2Fix behind the scenes.

    pretty sure everything is automatic if you patch up with the latest T2Fix. you just do that, and you are done, no edits or anything.

    FMdml is an optional extra with T2Fix (just like T2Skies, Interactive candles, Thief Enhancement pack etc).
    You need to agree to the 'Thief 2 FM Fixes' in the options box when installing, but yes after that everything is automatic. 140 missions fixed and many many more to come.

    Are you going to release updates to this mod from time to time? If so, an alternative individual distribution would be a good idea, I think.
    Assuming, that there won't be any updates to New Dark in the meantime, downloading newer version of T2Fix (v1.127b, c d etc...) would be an overkill for a mod that is less than 1Mb in size.

    Jax will be intermittently releasing updates of the FMdml package, how often is a question for him, but the next set of missions we are working on are the 2006 missions, hopefully I'll have bug tested all of them before the end of this year and he will certainly be releasing an updated FMdml package then, if not before hand but either way any update to the package will will posted in this thread to keep you guys informed.

    You can install FMdml manually, there's a link to the manual d/l at the bottom of the OP.

    For manual installation all you need to do is extract the 7z file into your T2 folder and add T2FMDML to your mod path.

    To manually update an existing FMdml all you'll need to do is extract the new 7z file into your T2 folder and over-write any existing files.

    BTW. this package is fleshing out what seems to be the main idea behind the dml feature. I think Le Corbeau should be proud of you guys! (we - the FMdml mod consuments - are anyway!). And maybe, this will convince him, that the community is now ready for new toys... (as in, engine improvements!)

    that would be a rather odd choice - the patcher doing this automatically when the box is ticked would make much more sense. an omission maybe? can't check, I'm away from any decent computer for a couple of days.

    Jax would need to give a specific answer why he set it up that way, but this way players have the option of disabling this mod more easily than having to re-installing T2Fx, just as you can with other mods such as HDmod, NecroAge etc...

    T2FMDML is automatically added to the mod path if it is selected in T2Fix; no additional configuration is necessary. This is only required if installing the package manually.
