View Full Version : video stuff

I finally got Thief 2 installed on my computer but once again there is a little problem. The movies that are supposed to show up before the missions and for the intro aren't showing up. When you click on start game, it goes straight to the list of objectives for that mission. It doesn't show the little movie where Garrett talks or anything. How can I get the movies to play?

Reinstall the Indeo codecs. I don't remember for which Thief version, but one of them has an iv5.exe install program.

You didn't mention your OS. If it is Windows XP, there is a defect in that the Indeo codecs get disabled on Windows XP startup, so you end up having to reinstall the codecs after a reboot and before you start the game (actually, I think, you can just re-register the codecs and probably do it in a batch file in your Startup group or a wrapper batch file used to start Thief).
