What is it? Is it different missions from the original thief 2? I've
played thief 1 and 2 but couldn't be bothered with 3 when I started it.

Its a free fan made expansion pack to Thief 2 - the version I got from
Fileplanet worked fine. Its a high quality game as polished as Thief 2 - yes
it looks a little dated now because the engine is very old but its clearly a
labour of love. The levels, cutscenes and sound are all up to standard of
the original game. Im enjoying it immensely.

Ive got the budget version of Thief 2 on the Sold Out label
which is version 1.07 I think - Thief2X installs fine on it and
puts its own desktop icon for launching - a very professional
job.

You should have installed the 1.18 patch first I think.

I agreed to the update from the message that popped up, but it says mines
still version 1.07.

This new game seems to work fine though. Any point in applying the patch
now, and where would I get it from?

As the instructions clearly point out, it needs version 1.18 to work
correctly.

That's the only reason I won't put him in the killfile. With some of his
claims this week it is clear he doesn't know anything about gaming.

What instructions ? Theres no readme with Thief2X - there is a FAQ
but that makes no mention of which version of Thief 2 is required.
Its running fine and stable for me at 1.07 on WinXP + SP2.

From readme.txt installed in the T2X folder:

Requirements
~~~~~~~~~~~~
A legal version of Thief2 - The Metal Age by Looking Glass Studios,
patched to version 1.18, is required in order to play T2X. Be sure to
have Thief2 installed and patched before attempting to install T2X.

I thought that had been established around December?

He's back in mine and he's staying there. The irritation outweighs the
comedy value.

Uh... Not really. Unless you by "one of the best" mean somewhere
outside the top five. It was a nice game, but the graphics were so-so
as they were designed to run at 30 fps on an xbox.

I completely agree, it's a true pleasure to play. Even the voice acting is
surprisingly good, even better than some of the Thief 2 voice acting. I
also love the attention to detail with its modified health indicator,
visibility gem, menu screens etc, and as far as I know the cutscenes will
play without issue on Windows XP (unlike Thief 1 and 2). As you say, it's
clearly a labor of love.

I haven't tried T2X I did grab it though.

I don't think T3 is graphically that great but gameplay is.

I spent over an hour on the first big city level last night. I thought I'd
been really thorough and found everything, then when I completed the mission
I had 2 out of 5 secrets and about 75% of the loot! It's that sort of mod.
