    I'm just gonna copy/paste the instructions I gave to someone in another forum. Thief Gold works after doing this:

    1. Make sure you have the game patched to the latest version.
    2. Install DDFIX. This should let the game work with most modern graphics cards. This thread will walk you through installing it: http://www.ttlg.com/forums/showthread.php?t=121449
    3. You will need to tell the game to use only one core of your processor. I'll link again to save space: http://www.thief-thecircle.com/guides/hyperthreading/

    After following these steps I was able to get Thief working. If you do run into any problems, you can get help on the TTLG forums which are still quite active: http://www.ttlg.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=153

    Edit: that's the legacy gaming part of the forum, but the thief section is here
    http://www.ttlg.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=83

    ****ing hyperlinks. Sorry, I don't know what is happening there ^^^

    For #3, Darkloader has an option to do that for you as well. The above also applies to Thief 2, in case anyone was wondering.

    Except it doesn't seem to be working out of the box at all, going by GOG's forums.

    Glad I checked over there and here before buying it. $10 is overpricing the game when I have to fix the compatibility issues myself... at that point I'll just go buy one of the collections for the same price or cheaper and get more bang for my buck.

    GOG is getting sloppier on their releases it seems... not sure I really trust them on anything other than DOSBox games and games that already work no problem on newer operating systems. I wonder if this was even tested without the use of outside programs?

    I pirated it to spite the people who thinks it's Okay! Gimme a heads up when you read this post so I can delete the game.

    They have a policy of "no refunds", yet their "Outcast" has all the problems it ever had, and plenty of purchasers said so, yet only gamers are trying to come up with home-made patches and fixes and their is not a peep from GOG. Also there is the problem of patches being made just for the GOG version by the developers, leaving the original buyers stuck with any problems, despite the fact those original customers kept the company float back when!

    Why are you digging up old threads to complain about slightly related issues?

    I'm probably the wrong person to espouse GOG's point of view of pricing considering I've bought a total of one game from them and have bought umpteen Steam games but they do have a point from this recent interview:

    http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2012...w-death-of-drm

    Even while sales numbers skyrocket for both Valve and the publishers who line Steam’s catalog, GOG thinks they’re out-and-out hurting the industry.

    “Heavy discounts are bad for gamers,” Rambourg explained. “If a gamer buys a game he or she doesn’t want just because it’s on sale, they’re being trained to make bad purchases, and they’re also learning that games aren’t valuable. We all know gamers who spend more every month on games than they want to, just because there were too many games that were discounted too deeply. That’s not good for anyone.”



    “We provide a lot of value in our games that goes beyond just the price. This is one of the key ways we fight against piracy, after all: providing gamers with more value than a pirate does. We actually generate more than half of our revenue from full-price sales, simply because we keep our prices reasonable in the first place. Our average sale tends to be around 40% – 50% off; that’s plenty of incentive to pick up a game if you’re interested or if you just think you might like to try it because you’re not sure about the game, but not some crazy 75% or 85% discount that damages the long-term value of a game.”
