Thief: Beauty Within quest: how to enter the building for the quest?

  • Thief: Beauty Within quest: how to enter the building for the quest? Alan

    I just started playing Thief on the PS3 and got the quest Beauty Within to steal the hand mirror for Basso. The map shows the target in Stonemarket, in a building beside the clock tower, and I've found a window on the back side of that building which I assume is the way in for the quest. However, I can't find a way to reach that window. There is a "rafter" that juts out beneath the window, which you obviously must jump onto somehow, however the rooftop pathways and ledges in the area don't take you near enough to jump onto it. So that makes me think you must have to drop down from the rooftops above, and I can't find a way to them.

    I've attached a photo of the map showing my location at the window as the arrow, and the objective as the circle just above me to the right, inside the building.

    Any tips for getting into the building for this quest?!

  • Ok, I found it. The window I mentioned is actually where you exit the quest. The entrance is a window that you access after using a rope arrow to reach the rooftop from Clock Tower Plaza. The first photo below is the location where I'm sitting on the rooftop next to the window (after completing the quest, so the quest marker no longer appears). The second photo is me in the same location, turned around with my back to the window so you can see the rope I used to reach the rooftop from the plaza.

  • I'm playing The Ballad Of Gay Tony and I've completed all of the main story missions. However, there's a random "female" icon on the map on (or very, very close to) Massionet9 I've been inside, out, on the first floor (above the bar) and even on top of the building and at various times as well and I can't seem to find the character. Google search claimed that I had to go into the bar at 9 sharp and have a shot - which I did but I am still missing the character. Is there any planetary alignment I need to be aware of in order to start this random character mission, please?

  • I'm still having some issues with the new Ninja Rope physics. My biggest problem is I can't seem to reliably climb up over a ledge. According to the tutorial you just hold right/left in the direction... to be a certain distance to the ledge to be able to jump? Do I need to wait a certain amount of time or what? If it matters, I'm mostly concerned with climbing ledges where my rope is attached just at/below the cliff edge. If I'm attached above the cliff I can usually swing over and onto the ledge with a jump.

  • I seem to be having an issue with my local map in Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning. As you can see, it shows the proper icons, but it doesn't show the actual roads. This makes planning my route to my next quest objective (or even finding my way) extremely difficult. I did notice, however, that whenever I first entered an area (specifically a cave), I was met with this map: Well, wait a minute. What's this? Everything is shown. But, whenever I proceed further into said cave: Aww... Nuts. (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻ How can I fix this map? EDIT It seems to work just fine upon leaving an area

  • I'm getting very frustrated with playing Fable 3 as I find the quest tracking system and map to be very unintuitive. Is there any way to find quest npc's other than marking the quest as active and teleporting near them? Sometimes I find that it teleports me quite a long way away from them and then I struggle to find the right person. Especially in town, such as Brightwall. I also find that during delivery missions if you open the map to find the npc, then close and re-open it the npc will have moved! Is this a bug or normal? Are there any tips, mods or suggestions for how to improve

  • I'm going through Fable 3 and am doing a quest where I need to bring a guy from the main city (forget the name) to Driftwood. I've gotten to Driftwood, but within a couple minutes of walking through there my game consistently freezes. I hear a brief beep, occasionally the graphics get a little distorted, and then it just stops. This has now happened to me around 5 times, and it's consistent. I've tried leaving and then returning to Driftwood, but it doesn't seem to help. I've also seen the crash happen when in the sanctuary (went there to attempt to jump to a different quest). Has

  • or gold. I managed to eek out a bronze time for the Death from Above map in TSE. However, I'm not getting anywhere in any of the other maps—my best time for Kleer Base in TSE is 1:50, and the bronze medal time is 3:00. On every other map I play, I seem to miss the medal times by a large margin. I suspect there's something systematically wrong with the way I'm playing. I obviously can't describe my playing style in full detail, but I will update this question with more information as needed. Edit 1 Just got a 4:06 time on my first attempt at Deserted in BFE, a map that is wider open

  • In the Hounds Pit area there is a tower that also serves as Lady Emily's room. When I look up in that room, there are some floorboards that you can peek through. Also the floorboards are unbreakable. It looks like there is a room above Emily's room, but I can't get up there. There seems to be an open window that leads into the room, but it's so far up that I can't reach it with Blink. Is there a way to enter that room?

  • window pops up but asks me to 'sign in'. Doing so will have all my friends appear instantly so; it's as if Steam thought I said 'start in offline mode' or something. However this randomly happens during gameplay as well (I.e. I'll be signed in on entering a game, later I look to invite someone to a game to find I've been signed out). No notifications, nada. I can't find any settings pertaining to this and was just wondering if you could suggest anything (E.g. delete specific config and magic happens). My google fu fails me; all the results are invariably Disable from running at startup and Run

  • I'm in the dungeon beneath Formello, and within a secret passageway I found another secret switch. However, when I try to use it, I get the message "You think there is a concealed control here, but you can't figure out how to get it to work". In the first Avernum game, which this one is a remake of, you basically just tried to walk through walls to find secrets. There were rarely switches, so I'm not sure what kinds of mechanics govern them now. This is the second switch I've come across that I've gotten this message for, though the other ten or so I've seen so far have worked just fine
