What works

Installation, uninstallation, cinematics, and the menu

What does not

The game itself.  The 3D graphics are so slow it's unplayable.  Possible due to DirectDraw HAL being the only available graphics API/driver in the video settings section, so it's rendering in software mode.

Workarounds

What was not tested

Didn't try installing iv5play, but I assume that's to get cinematics working.  Those are already working fine.

Hardware tested

Graphics:

  • GPU:
  • Driver:

Additional Comments

Bronze/garbage rating, since it's unplayable this way.

HowTo / Notes

video/startup problems

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

Running on multicore systems
I am told that the command taskset -c0 wine thief2.exe is needed (and sufficent) to run Thief and Thief2 on a multicore system.
