What works

Everything :)

I give platinum because all problems are not connected to wine, and are present even on windows.

Game has well known bug, it hangs when run on multicore processors. This is not linux / wine problem and fix for this bug in linux is very simple to solve, just run game with this command:

schedtool -a 0x2 -e wine ./THIEF.EXE

where 0x2 is number of processor core on witch run the game, egz. 0x1 - first core, 0x2 second core, etc.

What does not

Nothing :)

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.
