    T2 FM - Legacy of Knoss (Nov 2022)

    I'm pleased to announce my new Thief 2 fan mission, Legacy of Knoss.



    This is a loose sequel to my Thief 1 Anniversary Contest mission Catacombs of Knoss, but it is not necessary to have played that mission to play this one.

    Following a clue from the necromancer Knoss's grimoire, Garrett finds himself in the gloomy district of Greytwist Murking for an appointment with a shady antiques dealer...

    Notes:

    - This mission has been designed to have a classic Thief look. It is highly recommended to disable all mods and texture packs so as not to clash with the intended experience.
    - Requires New Dark version 1.27 or higher.
    - New mantle should be turned ON. It should be set automatically by fm.cfg - don't turn it off as you might get stuck.
    - You can probably climb where you're not supposed to if you really try.
    - Sometimes the AIs can get stuck here and there. I've caught a few of these, but it's Dark Engine, you can't catch 'em all.
    - There are a number of plot-related conversations in the mission. I have tried to make these as foolproof as possible, but be warned that the Dark engine is not good at saving and loading during conversations. I would advise that you avoid saving and loading during any conversations just in case you soft-lock yourself.
    - Plot-relevant conversations are subtitled. Enable subtitles in your cam_ext.cfg to see them.
    - The mission is currently English-only; if you're interested in translating, please drop me a message.

    v1.1 Changes:

    - Fixed a bug where the "Don't kill anyone" objective could fail near the mission end.
    - Fixed the placement of a piece of loot.
    - Fixed a piece of loot that could never be frobbed, meaning the total loot count was wrong.

    Hey nicked I am having trouble saving and loading?? I tried to do a quick save and it failed I then tried a hard save and that also failed?? any ideas why? I am using angelloader and have turned all mods off. Fantastic mission so far but I quit because of the saving issue. I will try turning some of the mods back on to see if that will help. I don't think I saved during a conversation but I will restart and let you know.




    Update: I got completely out of game and got back in and my saves are working!!

    Saves completely failing is a new one on me. If a conversation had broken, it would still let you load, but you could end up soft-locked with the conversation failing to continue.

    Oh boy, a new nicked campaign! Thanks a lot! The Catacombs of Knoss maps were some of my favorites from recent memory and I had no idea a sequel is coming.

    Thank you again!

    i tryed to get from the shortcut=did not work, but for some reason i cant find it on my t2 on old comp ,i got no idea where its hiding, i will try agian next time i use old comp to finish this mission

    but if anyone has a t2 fmsel/fmselect please send it to me in messages,its the one you can open and look like a mini screen to show what fan mission you have ready to go

    i already got the t1 fmselect and it only works for thief 1/g fan mission i got no idea why, my t2 game is a copy someone sent me so its mission some things even with full install,so i got no idea,i just know someone once sent it to me on old comp and it worked

    but the mission is perfect on old comp

    Click on the following URL: https://www.ttlg.com/forums/showthre...60#post2174260
    Select the download for the newest NewDark version (currently v1.27). Unpack the resulting zip file. It contains, among others, a file named contrib.zip. Unpack it as well. You should find fmsel.dll on your hard disk after that, and any other file you might need to get Thief 2 v1.27 up and running, with FMSel included.

    nicked, amazing mission! I already got the stone key and am in the dungeon. I activated 4 pedestals and a sword in the tower. What to do next?

    Check out the candles on the stone altar to the north of the building.

    I immediately lit 4 candles on the altar. Then, using a rope arrow, I got into the lower hall. Then I activated the sword in the column. The red road was formed. What to do next is unclear.

    If you mean the hallway with "laser" traps, you just need to crouch your way out to escape, then keep exploring to find the way into the garden.

    Finished. I had a hitch with candles. I did not have time to read the order of extinguishing candles.
