ok i was browsing around and found something at "GARRET'S NOTEBOOK"
The "other" Thief 2 patch. Download this one if you purchased the "SoldOut" edition of Thief 2. The original patch will lock you out of the game.

Big question is which original patch does it mean.


Please note I have the "SOLD OUT VERSION".
Which is why I'm asking.

The EIDOS patch for 1.18. SOLDOUT has a special patch. You can find it on www.keepofmetalandgold.com I think, and on the www.Thiefmissions.com site under PATCHES.

I'm not sure, but SOLDOUT has a patch on their site. I don't know the link addy for sure, but if you have the soldout version you should have the link in the Inet addresses shortcuts.

There is also a Premier edition. If this is the same as the Soldout, I don't know. But there is a special patch for the PREMIER as well.

Simply stated. Yes. There is a patch for the USA EIDOS version. A patch for the SOLDOUT version, and a patch for the PREMIER version.

The Soldout and Premier might be the same, but I would use the Soldout, if, as you say, that's what you have.

LOL So, what you do is hang it up for the day. Jump in the car, or on the bus, and take a trip to Marin.

Cruise Sausalito, or visit Muir Woods, or just pop into the coffee/book store in Fairfax.

Then when you have regained your calm and cool, take the old road to Bolinas, and cruise back up the coast. :D

Curiosity abounds. I have not heard that the SOLDOUT was available in the USA. I say "I have not heard." This, of course, does not mean that it is not.

Did you pick yours up in Europe, and bring it back from a trip, or did you buy it on the net, or get it by some arcane method of which I am ignorant (a condition I am frequently in) :D
