1.19 is an unofficial update for Thief 2 and Thief Gold, released by an anonymous coder. It rectifies many of the issues in the vanilla game without having to use DDFIX. It has proven to be remarkably stable and should be used wherever possible when playing Thief.

What works


What does not

Nothing. It is 100% functional from what I can see.


What was not tested

The full game. Although w/ how T2 works, if one mission works, then if another doesn't work then it must be a fault of the FM.

Additional Comments

At this moment, the patch works great. Only issue is you have to set the ingame settings to your monitors resolution or else you'll have overlapping panels onscreen.

HowTo / Notes

Some things to consider

Thief 1.19 (and the similar System Shock 2 patch) adds a configuration file titled CAM_EXT.CFG which contains many extra settings that can make or break the correct operation of the game in WINE.

I recommend studying this file and creating a backup of it before making changes.

Under WINE 1.4 I observed that the option d3d_disp_sw_cc - when active - left me with a black screen during gameplay. Comment this option out with a preceding semi-colon if this happens to you. Despite the note in the CFG file, I was still able to adjust gamma even with windowed mode forced.

Another note: Thief 1.19 killed X when trying to go fullscreen with a resolution lower than my desktop resolution.

Title is self-explanatory. And I checked in options, and Fog is apparently enabled. I've just updated both wine and my FGLRX drivers recently, so I'm supposing it's a regression in 1.6.

Yes, I've done tests and the regression links back to 1.6rc1 even. Should be further tested by others.

I should have filed a bug report on this already. I've been dragging my feet on it as I've merely been falling back on 1.5.31 in POL. I've had enough time to confirm that this isn't just an AMD problem; it impacts Intel mesa drivers as well.
