Patch 1.19 released, fixes various bugs and adds new features
A new patch has been released, and is confirmed to be working, that, amongst other things, allows Thief 2 to:
+ Install much easier and play without problems (no speed up/slow downs, no problems playing the FMVs, etc),
+ Use widescreen and/or higher resolution modes,
+ Scales the HUD properly on widescreen mode,
+ Can now use the mouse wheel up and down, and define them in the game's menu,
+ Can switch from map screen to game screen and vice versa without changing resolution,
+ Makes using ladders easier,
plus fixes various in-game bugs.
The patch is available from:
"PCs don't catch viruses or malware. Stupid users do." - The Cranky Hermit.

I've been playing since the patch came out (was at my wit's end because I couldn't get Thief 2 to work and had loved Thief 1 so much). Great game so far, great patch. They even got the movies working, which I never could in Thief 1.
It says something about a game that's 12 years old, something like this comes out and in a couple of days there's a 500 post thread on it (over at tllg.com).
