Original & Gold editions
Installation and movie playback, even before installing iv5play.exe (apparently not required anymore in Wine, even though I did it for testing purposes).
What does not
Actual game only works for a short while before freezing in various places, possibly at random times. Game not hardware rendered and is thus extremely slow and basically unplayable.
What was not tested
The rest of the game.

Thief is an old game that will have problems on modern hardware, Windows or Wine. Therefore you must install TFix to run the game.
TFix might prompt a warning on language settings for the GOG version: you can safely ignore it.
It may prompt an error message at the end of the process. Do not confirm or it will revert the install. Kill wine instead.
