"When are they going to bring me my dinner, that's what I would like to know," muttered Benny, resenting his job.
The gems of Sarnoth weren't even pretty to look at. Sometimes he'd guarded *true* treasures, and not just jumped-up Lordlings' fancy-pants collectibles, but work was work and he needed to pay his rent.
A splash and hiss, the brazier and torches went out, and suddenly it was very dark in the Vault.
"Hello? Is someone... There?"
Benny waited. There was no sound.
"Guess it was rats."
Something cracked Benny's skull and everything went dark(er).
"Alone at last," Garrett smiled.
I haven't played Thief in a long time, but I keep downloading the fan mission because I plan on playing again!
But problem is that Thief 2 won't run with Vista. I've tried searching ttlg forums, but I don't understand the tutorials.. And it doesn't help that my game disc is scratched to hell. Has anyone had any luck running Thief 2 on Vista?
Or am I better off reloading XP?
Okay, for the last several years, I held onto an older machine so I could still play the first two games on a Windows 98 platform. It's not dead yet, but I expect it to go someday. So, I experimented and was able to get Metal Age to run just once on an XP machine. Although, I think that might be my play disc, which is old and kind of beat up, It was well loved. Anyway, I can't get it to work anymore and I was never able to get The Dark Project, original or Gold, to spin up at all. So, my questions are:
Are there versions or updates available, commercially or fan-made, that allow either game, preferably both, to run on the XP platform?
Is there anything I can do to my XP machine to make it more hospitable to my beloved first two Thief games?
Will Thief 2x run on the XP platform? I had a disastrous attempt to get it on the old machine, which in part, inspired my XP experiment.
If somebody answered this question years ago, just point me at the post,and I'll shut up. I did look for an old post, but I couldn't find it one.
Hello, my name is Natalie and I'm a Thief addict.
I love Thief.
Been playing since I found the Dark Project in 2002.
Have played all 3 Official Thief games, plus the mobile version and all side projects.
Fan missions are what gives me my fix. Absolutely love all those fan missions.
Just wanted to say hi!
I'm looking for screenshots of the cradle dungeons and cells from the "Robbing the Cradle" mission. To be precise, I need some straight-forward shots of the cells (the creepier the better) for a project non-Thief related. I haven't been successful finding them online, but if you have the PC version of DS and could nab those, I'd greatly appreciate it.
Gasp, I was just thinking! Are the red hand prints that are on Fence doors (and walls) in any way related to those paintings in the Cradle's observatory? I came across this thought during Precalculus (good job, had a test today too). Well, it's just a theory-like. Thankies.
