Original & Gold editions
Everything, with modifications to screen resolution of course.
What does not
What was not tested
Needs more testing to gauge overall playability. The 1.19 patch (Also referred to as NewDark, in the event 1.19 becomes depreciated by a possible update) has some changes in it for Thief 1/Gold which may seem different to some from the original vanilla 1.37 or older. This is entirely the engine's fault, and not due to Wine.

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.
