What works

Menus, installation, copy protection. Installation (as with System Shock 2, which is based on the same engine) must be started with the "-lgntforce" flag to convince the program that it is not being run in nt. This is not necessary to run the game

What does not

Cutscenes, game itself. After accepting the mission the level loads and a blank screen is presented. It remains this way for an extended period of time and must be killed to stop it. The game itself never starts.

Additional Comments

Similar problems as experienced in Ubuntu 606 (below), except that no frames are rendered and it doesn't crash. This previously worked on the same system for version 0.9.7. Other "Dark engine" games have similar problems (Thief 2, System Shock 2)

HowTo / Notes

Hardware compatibility

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.

Installation

Original setup

  • Launch it with `wine setup.exe -lgntforce` to bypass the DirectX limitation warning.
  • The Intel video codecs proposed at the end of the installation ("iv5codecs.exe") are no longer necessary with recent versions of Wine.
  • Copy the THIEF/MOVIES folder from the disc to the game installation folder in order to play the game cutscene without disc.


GOG setup

It may prompt an error message at the end of the process. Do not confirm or it will revert the install. Kill wine instead.
