The patch contains various bugfixes and game improvements such as widescreen support, and provides some GUI tweaks. It also enables the use of the FMSel fan mission loader frontend with Thief 3 and bundles the most important T3 mods. It works with the GOG and Steam versions of the game.
This beta is obsolete - get the 1.1.10 Full Edition instead.
This beta has the following changes relative to 18.104.22.168:
Thief 3 Gold:
The T3G changes may be optional and off by default in the final release.
The Fonts mod:
Relative to the last beta, the end-the-mission function is now much improved, and using the same key combo as Thief 1-2. The keypress will just do nothing if you're in a map which can't be ended, so it's now on by default. Also, Minimalist has had some small fixes, mostly related to the edible food.
Note that because of gamesys changes the savegame version for Minimalist has been bumped - so anybody wanting to use MP savegames from previous stable releases should not update.
The beta is mainly to test the wrapper DLL, which could potentially improve things on Windows 10. Anybody who's had issues with choppy video or other performance problems, please test if this DLL helps. Note that the option to install it is not selected by default if you already have a local d3d8.dll (e.g. dgVoodoo) in the game install.
There was a couple of problems with this DLL:
Apparently they have been fixed by patching the Thief 3 exe a bit, but if you encounter them anyway, please post about it. Also, try if some of the settings on the troubleshooting page can fix it, most notably turning 'direct load' off.
