The beauty of it is that you can have both TDP and TG

Ehhh... now we're getting into my OCD.  I can't justify having multiple versions of the same game, and it's hard to imagine there are enough great TG FMs to make up for its OM shortcomings.

I've never steamed or GOGed...

Okay, let's pivot away from my quirkiness for a second to focus on yours.  Really?  Never?  Granted, I haven't used GOG either, but I was under the impression that Steam was pretty much ubiquitous these days.

I just don't really play many other games.  I did the first few splinter cell games...they were ok but 3rd person makes me a bit nuts.  From long ago "Return to Castle Wolfienstien" was pretty good.  For a silly diversion I did some of  the Need For Speed games many years ago.  Between playing Thief FM's, building them and doing voice acting for them, I pretty much get my gaming fix.  Oh yes...I loved the first 2 Zelda games from way way back.  I still fire up my SNES and Zelda for a few hours every year or so.  It just hard now to play after getting so used to quick saves.  I also did the Doom that they did the dark mod with but only because way back when you had to have it, so I figured I'd give it a go.  Lordy Lord it was cheesy but I could see right away if modified how it would work well for a thief like stealth game.

Understandable.  I tend to assume most Thief fans would be into the Immersive Sim genre as a whole, but to each their own.

Speaking of Mark Brown (author of the above video), and seeing as you mentioned both Zelda and level design, you might be interested in not only his latest piece
(an analysis of what made the original Legend of Zelda great) but also his ongoing series breaking down each Zelda game's dungeon design.

But you see, there's a problem--I don't like Thief Gold.  The new missions remind me of The Metal Age's style of mission design, which I don't care for as much as The Dark Project's.

I tend to disagree... The new missions in TG are far worse than TMA's  :lol: Except maybe the one with the mages (title escapes me right now) that is more in line with TDP quality and atmosphere. The Guilds is especially awful.

However, when I replay TG (which I do from time to time mostly for the TDP missions) I just skip the missions I don't like... Ctrl+Alt+Shift+End (during a mission)

Thanks for the info.

I've made a change to permissions so you should now be able to upload an avatar to our server via your profile. Tell me if that works for you.

All right...a new project: getting all my Thiefs running again under Win10. Then I'll play all these missions. :lol:

(Moment of heartbreak: realizing that your installs of FO4 and Skyrim have used up half of your brand new SSD.)

Well Silver, normally when you have a SSD, as they are generally small unless you are rich, you keep it for the OS and the programs you use the most (the things you really want to see load very fast). You use normal HD for games and stuff like that especially if you intend to keep them installed for a long time... Old games like TG or TMA don't really gain anything by being installed on a SSD as they are already light and should load fast from a conventional HD.

Hell, I'm not even sure that FO4 gains anything from being installed on a SSD so heavy the engine is  :lol: Do you see a difference in loading time compared to a normal HD?

I see that now... :madatwall:  I've since begun installing games on the 2tb drive; I did notice that, compared to my old system, FO4's main menu loads up REALLY fast when installed on the SSD (and that may also be due to a much better video card, etc.), but I have yet to compare how it loads elsewhere. I'm going to move it over there anyway, since it's a buggy, creaky old engine and from what I've read, an SSD really doesn't help it anyway.

Speaking of buggy and creaky, Skyrim loads...enh. Not a huge improvement, but okay. I have run into limitations with the engine though, and I'm interested to see how much better SSE does with 2K textures everywhere.

With all that said, I'm pretty sure Witcher 3 is going to run beautifully no matter what drive I use. :lol:

(When I get the chance, I'll pop in over at the tech thread I started to let you know what the deal is with my new computer...it didn't go as planned, but it turned out well anyway.)
