What works

Installation, menus, videos, sound, and gameplay to an extent(cant finish a mission because of freeze).

The long standing text drawing issue was fixed somewhere between wine 1.1.30 and 1.1.31.

What does not

Minor (startup video) drawing artefacts.

Drawing artefacts at the mouse cursor and in all game menus.

Major problem is now that the game hang itself up on loading savegames or going to the exit of a level. It just freeze there and you cant kill it.

You need a cd fix.


What was not tested

Play the game from level 2 to end

Additional Comments

I found a workaround for the mouse escape bug. So here is the Workaround: First: get xwarppointer from the internet and compile it. Second: Change the Game Res to 1280xYYYY Third use this script to start: --------------------------------- #!/bin/bash # Resolution in game : 1280xYYYY !!!!!! cd /mnt/daten/wine/win_c/programme/Thief3/ MWINE_VERSION=wine1132 WINEPREFIX=~/.wine/thief3 mwine System/T3.exe & while [ 1 = 1 ] do getX=$(./xwarppointer get | cut -d" " -f1,1) getY=$(./xwarppointer get | cut -d" " -f2,2) #echo $getX if [ $getX -lt 2 ]; then ./xwarppointer abspos 1277 . else if [ $getX -gt 1278 ]; then ./xwarppointer abspos 3 . fi fi #if [ $getY -lt 10 ]; then # ./xwarppointer abspos . 385 # else #if [ $getY -gt 758 ]; then # ./xwarppointer abspos . 385 # fi # fi # ./System/xwarppointer abspos 700 450 done --------------------------------- Have fun with the game.

HowTo / Notes


A nocd executable is needed to run the game.

"If your sound card is not properly detected, try switching the sound to OSS in winecfg. I can make no guarantees, but I was able to play through the entire training mission. I experienced two major problems: text was not rendered properly and the "mouse stop" was not always done correctly." - Erich Hoover
