What does not
What was not tested
Completing game - just first mission.
First install Thief 2. Then install iv5play.exe from CD2. Now apply the 1.19 patch - it was for me essential. Without the patch the game was unplayable (ridiculous low FPS+no keyboard input) and videos didn't worked. It also enables 32-Bit graphic mode and a high resolution. Sources for the patch are (thanks to http://www.ttlg.com/forums/showthread.php?t=140085&p=2143402#post2143402): http://www64.zippyshare.com/v/33869454/file.html | md5 : 131cd0a1d9e626ee90e569571e8d0d01 http://www.saleck.net/downloads/thief2/t2_v119.zip http://anodal.org/thief/t2_v119.zip http://www.southquarter.com/downloads/2012/t2_v119.zip With this (amazing) patch a No-CD-Crack is no longer needed. I have a Quadcore-processor but did not need to run it with a special command (e.g. taskset). It just works with the patch.

you MUST install "iv5play.exe" from the game disc
if you want to view the cinematics then you will also need a native quartz.dll
