Wink Mystery Foes - The First Alekhine's Gun Fan Mission
It's been over a year since the editor came out, but finally the first ever Alekhine's Gun fan mission is out:

Changes in v1.1
  • Corrected some errors in the Russian and Spanish translations.
  • The grass is now properly aligned with sloped terrain.
  • Relocated a waypoint that was previously positioned between the generator you can turn on after cutting the wire and the wall.

Changes in v1.2
  • Strogov now properly faces the object "BR03" when applying soporific to it.
  • All the points on VectorMap01 have been properly aligned so it's a perfect square.
  • Started making a few smoother terrain transitions.
  • Dirt decals have been added in some areas. Lightmaps have been updated to reflect this.
  • The level now has a Terrain Lightmap.

Background:

I had this mission planned in my head since December, after playing some of the Trials (Quiz) missions in Hyrule Warriors' Adventure Mode. Haggard Games released a Template level for modders to work with last August, and as the level is perfect for a Cuba-like setting, I decided to make a mission set in Cuba where the targets are indistinguishable from the guards, and the only clues as to their identity is in the objective briefing. I hope that by releasing this fan mission, the level editor for Alekhine's Gun will gain some attention among the public and wider Death to Spies and stealth gaming fanbase.

Story:

Agent Alekhine is sent to the secret base known as "Whiskey Tango Foxtrot One" to assassinate the ringleaders of a group of saboteurs preparing to infiltrate the USS Essex. The entire group is dressed up as US Navy Flight Deck crewmen. Rambaldi's team don't have time to uncover any personal information on the ringleaders, solely going by photo ID. You must only kill the ringleaders to force the group to disband, killing anyone else will result in mission failure. Consult the objectives menu for clues about the exact identity of the ringleaders.

How To Install

This mission was made with the Steam version of Alekhine's Gun in mind, and requires Patch v1.02 to run. The game files can be found in C:\ProgramFiles or ProgramFiles(x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Alekhine's Gun. Copy everything that's in the CopyWhatsInsideIntoGame folder into the respective folders in the aforementioned directory. The mission can be accessed at any time, at the end of the missions list after clicking New Game. Upon clicking on the mission and the difficulty you choose, the opening cutscene starts up - it's only there because a cutscene is required to load upon starting up a mission before the briefing loads up. To skip it, press the Escape key after waiting a few seconds upon the cutscene loading.

Compatibility with Enhancement Addon

This fan mission is 100% compatible with the Alekhine's Gun Enhancement Addon, however there are some files that can very easily be overwritten if this mission was installed first. The affected files are:

Levels\GameMenu\GameMenu.lua
Scripts\Templates\Actors.shadvs
UI\FR_strings.shadvs
UI\GE_strings.shadvs
UI\IT_strings.shadvs
UI\PT_strings.shadvs
UI\RU_strings.shadvs
UI\SP_strings.shadvs
UI\strings.shadvs

The Actors.shadvs file inside this folder is based on Addon v0.04, so expect some differences to appear in the base game as a result, most notably the player character's crouched running speed being slower.

Shellshock for the German translations

RE: Mystery Foes - The First Alekhine's Gun Fan Mission
Hey. Liked, shared, commented and watched your video until the end. Hope this would help. Can I upload my saboteur walkthrough of the first beta version? I'm not sure if I'm will be able to beat my time for the first half of the level and to demonstrate some of the tricks that I shown here. Also, I will be recording all ways to kill targets, collect all items and AG Rebirth hard difficulty walkthrough in the near future.

Version 1.2 has been released, and the OP has been updated. On another note, I've started work on my next Fan Mission. I'm codenaming it "Project Grossman". It will contain several minor BioShock references, and will contain traces of seamen...Wink
