The patch contains various bugfixes and game improvements such as widescreen support, and provides a few tweaks. It optionally bundles the Unified Texture Pack. It works with the GOG and Steam versions of the game.

Original game bugs and issues that have been fixed or improved:

  • Multicore fix. Can be switched off for better performance (when it works)
  • Some speed-up of level loading, especially with vsync on
  • Fix for the desktop being visible during level loading on Vista and up. (Fullscreen only)
  • Fix for the mouse freezing or becoming invisible when using large font size settings in Windows

Game improvements:

  • All resolutions reported by the system, plus an optional custom display mode, are available from the options screen. The aspect ratio is shown as well
  • Easy switching between fullscreen and windowed mode
  • Field of view adjustment for widescreen is automatic - the horizontal view is extended instead of cropping off the top and bottom. This includes conversations and binocular/scope zoom
  • In addition the FOV can be adjusted to the user's preference
  • The HUD and menus are shown correctly, regardless of resolution and aspect ratio. In 3-monitor modes, the HUD is constricted to the middle monitor by default
  • Loading screens are shown correctly, at 4:3 aspect
  • The intro and cutscenes, which are letterboxed, are allowed to crop to fit the monitor (up to 16:9, a bit less when subtitles are on)
  • The fullscreen game can run on a display other than the primary. (Experimental)

Additionally some optional tweaks have been incorporated:

  • Minor HUD and GUI tweaks: Alternative reticles, disable the HUD or only the compass, symmetrically letterboxed conversations, disable the short intro movies
  • Walk by default, hold the qualifier key to run
  • Mouse sensitivity, which is normally stored in savegames, can be overridden using a central value
  • 'No Target' cheat: Make the NPCs ignore you

All tweaks are disabled by default.

The full edition includes the mod the Unified Texture Pack (a.k.a. John P, original installer found here). Please see the included readme file for more information. The update edition only includes the VU patch and the VisibleTweaker tool. It provides a much smaller download in cases where no mods have been changed or added since the last release.

Hello, i would like to point out a problem i noticed that wsnt even fixed by the patch you made for the game, and that its the multitools dont stack and need seperate invetory slots. Mind if i ask, is there any way for this glitch to be fixed?

In my experience, this happens quite often and the fix is simple but annoying; simply drop *all* your MT/etc, then pick them up again. They'll organise and stack in the same slot.

Anyone had issues with savegames being ignored, not saved or whole playsessions being wiped out before this mod? And does the mod fix it?

Never heard of anything that drastic. Thief 3 quick saves are slightly unreliable - they may turn out corrupt, but it's very rare - so DX2 quick saves may be too. This project does not touch saves at all as far as I remember.
