    From which mission comes this screenshot?

    Hi, I have a question for veterans of thief series. I have a vague scanned screenshot from an old magazine about video games. Probably, it is a Thief 2.

    Which mission it can be? Anyone recognize it? Maybe this is screenshot of fan mission? Thanks.

    I'm sorry but I cannot remember what mission that is.
    You would probably have more success going to Thief 2X MOD forum and ask there.
    Because there are probably not any old school thief players hanging around in Thi4f forums because T4 was a insult to the old trilogy and barley anyone of the old players like it at all.

    Remember.... not many old school players liked Deadly Shadows.

    I believe it comes from the fan mission: Defense Assassination 2
    Here is link to game: http://thiefmissions.com/m/DefenseAssassination2
    Oh..my bad. It turns out it is NOT from that fan-mission. I replayed this mission again and could not find anything that matches that screenshot.

    All I can tell is that it seems to be a screenshot from down in the Pagan realm. ???

    The image looked a little over-saturated with red tones, and a too zoomed in for what it was. To give folks another view of it, I reduced the red to try and better match what was probably in game, and made it smaller -- in case it helps anyone. I'm not saying it *will* help, but at least for me, it helps:

    Also, I don't think(?) it's a haunt... I think it's just a Hammerite. Haunts typically have a skull face, I believe.

    Ahh, Tereinatum... I had assumed at first, without looking too hard, that that was a big boulder on the right, but your comment made me re-evaluate; I now see it's likely a tunnel.

    I'm not sure where the screenshot is from, but my guess at the moment would be that it's from Thief 1, or a fan mission. I know Thief 2 much better than Thief 1, and there aren't a lot of Hammerites near tunnels, that I can recall offhand. Unless it's maybe somewhere in Thief 2's "Precious Cargo" mission, where there are Hammerites and tunnels, but the bridge isn't ringing a bell with me there. I'd have to play it again or watch a walkthrough some other day.

    Out of curiosity, do you know what magazine it is and when it was issued? Knowing the publication date might rule out a bunch of fan missions, at least. And do you have any more context for the photo, like any captions or what the text says in the article regarding the screenshot?

    EDIT: I now see you posted this a year ago, and also on ttlg.com, too, which is good -- http://www.ttlg.com/forums/showthread.php?t=145949

    Hopefully you find the answer sometime. May we know the significance of finding the answer?
