Original & Gold editions
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.
What was not tested
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)

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.
