Full Installer


On the next step you can choose between this three HD mod versions:

New Grass Vegetation (Animated) (5.9 GB) = The new grass and some trees are animated (sort of wind effect)
New Grass Vegetation (Static) (5.5 GB) = The new grass and trees are static
Original Vegetation (4.8 GB) = Without the new grass

For the best grass look you should set Anti-Aliasing to 4x or higher!

Why is this so big?
The T2 HD mod v1.0 has now also included all T1 textures for the FM mode!
There are also a lot of new T2 textures.


At the end of the installation you will see the option 'Enable LAA and higher object counts'.

The T2 HD mod won't work correctly if you disable this option. So it's required to leave it checked!!

If you have unchecked it (unfortunately) you can do it simply manuelly by double clicking the 'LAA.cmd' file which you will find in the HDMOD folder after installation.

If it's successfully patched you will see the popup window 'Large Address Aware successfully enabled in file: 'thief2.exe'.



NewDark Graphics Settings Tool v1.1
- If you move the mouse cursor over a button you will see a short info about the function!
- Subtitles are enabled by default! Use the Tool to disable them!

New Screen Overlay Blood FX:
The new blood FX is disabled by default. You can activate it with the "NewDark Graphics Settings Tool".

New Grass Vegetation:

If you have installed 'New Grass Vegetation' you will find it in some choosen areas. The grass uses the 'LOD' system what comes with NewDark.
The default LOD grass distance is set to low for better performance. But you can change the values if you want!

How to change LOD settings:
To do that go to HDMOD folder and open up the file called 'gamesys.dml' with Notepad and search for 'Grass LOD Distance'.

These two values are important:
"LOD 0->1 Dist" 30.00
"LOD 1->2 Dist" 45.00

The value for 'LOD 0->1 Dist' should always be lower then for 'LOD 1->2 Dist'.
You can try this for example:
"LOD 0->1 Dist" 65.00
"LOD 1->2 Dist" 75.00

Higher values = needs more GPU and CPU power! Find your own value.

I suggest you change the marble texture. In HD version, it's a face and it looks outright strange in opera house.

The vomiting zombies mod in the latest HMOD SUCK!

I mean seriously man, it pukes and hits me INSTANTLY from 12 feet away when the vomit actually drops 3 feet from its mouth.. AND THEN.. the vomit magically spawns flies that ALSO damage you... AND THEN.. the vomit EXPLODES causing damage..

Hell, I bet the next mod will have baby zombies flying out of zombies butts.. I mean WHY NOT right?

I guess you ran out of things to actually ENHANCE and COMPLIMENT this masterpiece of games and decided to start changing the gameplay as well?

How about instead of getting bored and adding crap that is certainly NOT appreciated, you work on a new project like Thief 2 (unless you decide to screw it up as well).

The least you could do is make something like puke zombies OPTIONAL!

This will be optional in the next version! So you can also choose the default zombies :)

This MOD is great but everything gets much much more darker in an unplayable way. All textures are black even on soldiers. How to solve this? Is there a setting that I need to adjust or choose? Increasing gamma doesn't solve this.

This is a review of the 1.0 version, other things may be added later. Finally, after waiting quite a bit, the 1.0 version has finally come. I have actually played Thief Gold with this HD mod many months ago, so, when i heard that the 1.0 version was coming out with all this new stuff, i figured i'd give TG a good spin once again (While cleaning my mouth from the poison that the Thief reboot has struck me with.). So far, i am amazed at the amount of work done, not only has Bentraxx replaced all of…
