Avoid ''No-Kill'' Rule
Throw a weapon such as the Mechanist mace or the Hammerite hammer to kill enemies but avoiding the ''no-kill'' rule at the same time.
Make a save file just before finishing a mission. Complete the mission as usual, and than make another save file in a different save location. Reload the save file that was made before the mission was finish. Complete the mission again. Your money count is now double of what it should be. Repeat this if you choose so.

In the 3rd mission ''Framed'', throw a scouting orb over the wall just next to your starting posistion to see the dancing zombie easter egg.
Get to the final mission, Sabotage at Soulforge.
To get the quotes, you need to get 5 Combat bot boilers and 5 steel plates.
To get the boilers, you need to disable 5 Combat bots and bash them until they break apart. Steel plates can be found in the various storage rooms.
Get to the Rolling machine in Bay A and put in 1 boiler and 1 steel plate then active the machine. Do this for each of the five pairs. After the last pair has been placed and rolled, the scroll containing the developer quotes will appear at the end of the machine.
Mission 2 Easter Egg
Get to the 2nd mission, Shipping... And Receiving.
Get to the code input room on the 2nd floor of the Building A. It's near the vice president's room. Input the code 7002 and read the scroll in Lord Porter's room on the 2nd floor of his warehouse.

Open up the file ''dark.cfg'' in the Thief II folder with notepad and add this line at the bottom.
cash_ bonus X
Just replace the X with any amount you want and you will start with that amount of cash when you're at the equipment purchasing menu.
File Editing Cheats
These cheats involve editing a game file, so create a backup copy of the file before trying the cheats. Use a text editor (Wordpad, Notepad) to edit the ''user.cfg'' file in the Thief 2 directory.
Get away with murder:
Enter ''cheats_active'' on a new line, then enter ''nokillgoalcheat'' on the next line. You can now kill people even if the goals tell you not to.
All locks unlocked:
Enter ''cheats_active'' on a new line, then enter ''lockcheat'' on the next line. Almost all locked locks will be unlocked.
Enter ''cheats_active'' on a new line, the enter one or more the following lines after it. (I'm not entirely sure about these three cheats effects).
FailOnSee - If an enemy sees you you will fail the mission.
FailOnKO - If you knock out an enemy you will fail the mission.
FailOnKill - If you kill an enemy you will fail the mission.
No Fall Damage
When falling from a high point in which you can take damage, simply press the Escape key before landing. You might hear your character grunt, but he will not have taken damage.

Thief: The Dark Project Cheats
Level skip code
This trick requires the v1.33 patch. Press [Ctrl] and [Alt] and [Shift] and [End] together during game play.
Start a New Game and set the Training difficulty to 'Expert'. Play through Training as usual until you get to the part where you fight against the guard. Fight him until he starts to walk away. Quickly run to the table, get the key, and follow the guard. If you take too long, the iron bars will shut behind him and you'll have to restart training.
Once back in the room where the guard comes out from, you'll see a locked grey door. Use the key on it, and you'll be in a basketball court. There's a basketball on the floor that you can throw around, and you can try to make it in one of the hoops. At the far end of the room, there's a bedroll that you can pick up that contains humorous quotes from the Thief production staff.

These two cheats require the v1.33 patch. First find the dark.cfg file in your Thief directory. Create a backup file of it, because you have to edit it. Open the dark.cfg file with a text editor (Wordpad, Notepad).
To start at any level you want:
Add the line ''starting_missionX'' X=the number of the mission. Play a New Game and you will start at that mission.
To have as much cash as you want:
Add the line ''cash_bonusX'' X=the amount of cash you want to start with.
Easy Fire Talisman
In the Lost City level, buy the speed potion before starting the mission. When you enter the tunnel past the big waterfall, instead of going left to the library, go right. Follow the tunnel and kill the baby spiders. When you get to the opening you will be looking at the talisman in the tower (Garret says ''So this is the Lost City...) Rope arrow one of the rafters. Drink the speed potion, then get a running start straight towards the opening, and jump to grab the rope (it may take a few tries). Once you get across, just climp the rope, jump through the window, and the Talisman is yours!! This may also work on Thief Gold, but I haven't tested it.
