Wine has almost everything working now.
What does not
What was not tested
i did not try to complete the whole game, but it seems stable enough so that this would be possible.
the cutscenes use some kind of intel codecs, and they where working with older versions of wine. the game would be fully playable if somebody could find a workaround for this...

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.
