    Actually, the subtitles for the new Garrett quotes in my mission are on by default. I didn't implement NVScript in this one, so I just used the old-fashioned method of frobbing a plaque with the subtitle written on it whenever Garrett speaks.

    Do I have to put ;enable_subtitles in the USER.CFG file?
    Are there any instructions how to do it for Thief Gold and Thief 2 v. 1.27?

    Simply uncomment the ; to enable subtitles. So, it would look like this:

    enable_subtitles

    without the ; next to it.

    Both Thief Gold and Thief 2 can be done the same way.

    Is it just me...or do some of the missions not download as ZIP files? A few of the missions appear as page files for me and don't function as fan missions....

    Also...thank you everyone for all the time and effort you put into this. I've been playing Thief all my life and for me...it's more than a game...it's therapy. I am currently considered "essential" by the powers that be and daily have to venture out into this chaotic world. Coming home to play missions made by this community is what my brain needs!

    Some of the missoins are in .7z format instead of .zip, but that shouldn't matter if you are using a modern mission loader. Old Darkloader will not recognize them.

    But I don't have this line in USER.CFG file at all.

    It's now in the cam_ext.cfg file in your Thief 2 game folder, at least it is on my installation after running the latest T2Fix 1.27b. Scroll down to the end and it's the last entry.

    Originally it looks like this enabled:

    ; enable and configure subtitles
    enable_subtitles
    subtitles_bg_color 0 0 0 0
    movsubtitles_bg_color 0 0 0 0

    To turn off, change it to this and then save the file:

    ; enable and configure subtitles
    ;enable_subtitles
    subtitles_bg_color 0 0 0 0
    movsubtitles_bg_color 0 0 0 0

    Have all contestants provided their missions? Will be more FMs or this is all?

    The deadline was the 27th, so yes everything has been submitted.

    I do believe some authors, like Nicked and Jarlfrank, will be releasing missions soon(ish), that were originally intended for the contest, so stay tuned for those.

    I didn't have these lines in cam_ext.cfg. So I copied these lines for enabled subtitles and pasted them at the end of cam_ext.cfg file.

    If those didn't exist in your config file, it probably means you haven't run T2Fix with a recent version of NewDark. Do you manually patch the game .exe file or do you use T2Fix?


    IMPORTANT: An update to Feast of Pilgrims is now ready which addresses the crash issue a few people were having. It is highly recommended that you download the update. If you are currently playing the mission, you can continue but your saves may become corrupted if your session goes over 3 hours or so. To take advantage of the fix, you will have to start a new game after installing the updated version.

    I finally beat all entries. That was a journey. Before contest I was really worried that there will be only city missions presented, but luckily there is still few non city missions. Thanks to that there is a variety of themes. I played on Tafferpatcher and didn't change my minimal audio settings. I didn't notice any technical problems either. And I had a lot of fun. Good job to all FM creators and organizers of this contest.

    Best missions for me are: Builder's Paradise (best scored), Into the Odd (not far behind) and Show Off! (which is also my favorite). Worst scored mission is Ten Little Taffers. If it would present only Garrett's path score would be higher, because other difficulties are underdeveloped. But my least favorite is Mission 1 of GORT's entry. GORT's entry didn't score the worst only because Mission 2 is much better.

    My top 3:
    1. Fierce Competition
    2. Where the Unknown Lurks
    3. Show Off

    As you can tell classic city & mansion missions are my favorite.

    • Fierce Competition
    • My Favorite Year
    • Troubling Transitions
    • Where The Unknown Lurks

    Also just finished all missions. For me there are 3 and then there’s the rest. Builder’s paradise, Into the odd and feast of pilgrims are in a league of their own. After those 3 there is a big drop in quality and creativity

    Thief has been one of my favorite series since its release. It's still a compelling, unique experience I revisit every few years, usually predicated by a visit to the ttlg forums. So here I am, checking in again, and I find this amazing community and fans authoring new missions. It's truly incredible! I can't wait to jump back in. Thanks all!
