Well I got it and it's installed and I already found a bug!!!

While setting up your options, don't double click (change) the "Use Weapon"
key. Instant crash to desktop! I've done it 3 times now to make sure. I
can change other settings, just not that one.

Loony is mighty impressed so far.

:(

A sublime message about the role of killing in a professional thief's
career? :)

Apparently it has something to do with my joystick. I uninstalled it and it
worked fine. Someone else posted the same problem because of a gamepad.
Pretty weak.

I'm posting my first impressions in a new post

You've reported this to EIDOS tech support, right? If not, when you're on
the phone/email with them, ask where the mission editing tools are.

We need to nag them so they know there's "sufficient demand". ;-)

Too late, they got it already.

Man, there's a guy on the Eidos forums that's as negative and attack prone
as Eep. I don't recommend a visit, it's ugly. In this particular case
however, the guy (BigPimpin) likes the game and slams/attacks anyone who
utters a complaint/critique of it. I really like the game but want to shove
my foot in his mouth after reading just a few posts.

I'm not negative and attack-prone, you gargantuous sack of poo! Er...heh.

But I still have my doubts about Thief 3, though it at least seems a LITTLE better after reading some more reviews here...but we'll see...

That is a keenly tested feature! It's NOT a bug!
