Well I'd hope it does. ;) Downloading now!

BTW, the Thief 3 promo that came out with the DE2 demo felt a lot like the Lookingglass(two gs?) ones. :)

Just watched it and it seems to have similar type selections for weapons as DEII and also for ammo counts??? Not individually shown as in the originals but more like the console type as they did in DEII :( I sure hope they change that to accomodate the PC and not cross combine the two platforms!!!!! They are different machines that use different interfaces, etc. and I don't want to play a console version on my PC!!!! Ta and Good Hunting!

Oooh man I just can't wait. Im like a kid in a candy store. I am so sick of playing mediocre games just to pass the time until a real game like Thief is out.

I see in the Trailer that you can see Garretts hands and feet in the game. I love that realism. I also love that there still is Benny's Voice for guards, Classic!

Does anybody know another place where one could see it? I would love to see some more Thief 3-videos than just the one on the official site. Thanks :)

Why has no one come forward with a link yet?

I was told that posting a request on the forums was the best way to see this video... What a joke!
So far, there hasn't been a peep from any of the ppl who claim to have seen it.

Chill there, Are you new to forums, and how they operate? Your starting to flame, for not getting what you want, let's not accuse now, mmKay.. Have you stopped to think that no one may have the video? They don't know where the link is? Someone usually does respond on this forum, maybe not as fast as you would like them to.

Sorry, don't know where the link is. Hopefully someone else will come along that DOES know.

Ive done some research,
The 40 meg gamestar video's name is (was)
"thief_16.mpeg"

and all the links (that I can find on Google)
point to the original KOMAG link, where
the file was removed.

Perhaps p2p programs are the next real
hope for seeing this video.

This Video? Is it ingame footage or is it the trailer where garrett steals the bag of gold?

It's a high quality ingame video which seems to have vanished from the web altogether. So far, not a peep from those who've seen it.

Well I still have it, but it was eating up too much bandwidth so I took it offline. It was indeed the best Thief 3 gameplay video of them all so far.

It IS still available on FMDVD 2 if you want it. That's the only way I can make it available at this point, sorry

CleptoManiac
20th Feb 2004, 21:36
I'll tell you what Komag, send it to me privately and I'll upload it to three other people on this forum. I can even share it on winmx for a few days.

OR, (AND)

you can post it on USENET for us all !

Please do, PLEASE

Seeing this video has reassured me somewhat about Thief 3.
also available on alt.binaries.mpeg

A huge thanks to Komag

Thanks! :eek: :D

This movie reassures me that Thief 3 will at least be as good as the other games, and maybe even better. The only thing that worries me is the AI.

Wow, as much as I am impressed with the video, I am equally appalled.

The lock picking is fantastic. I have been a recreational lock pickers myself for sometime now, and while its not exactly right, (althought locks may have been different then!) its pretty neat to see them take the time to be original with it.

The dynamic lighting and shadows are brilliant and will make the feel of the game incredible. Hopefully, it all the other things don't ruin it.

But then there are moments where I see big huge failure written all over it.

The HUD is horrendous. It totally feels like a console game and I pray to god they get rid of it for the pc version. I don't want those big distracting wheels flying past when I'm trying to equip myself.

The ragdoll physics of characters are clearly not setup right. When the player kills the servant, did you see how he falls? How unnatural is that?! It looked flat out ridiculous.

And the actual game physics. From what I've seen, it looks just like the silly, floaty physics from Max Payne 2. Did you see the loaf of bread bounce!? And those barrels reacted like a beach ball when he ran into them.

Oh yeah, and last but not least when you collect the loot, don't tell me how much PERCENTAGE of total loot I've gotten thus far! Keep it how it was. I'm not a console monkey, I can think for myself!

The good thing about the 3rd person mode is that it is optional! I will refuse to use it, its as simple as that. There is no need to go off on Ion Storm for that. There are more important things to focus your hate on. :)

One thing with that video clip, it was made last *June*
You know how fast things change. I would like to hope they have gone past that, and improved it, made it better. ;)

I second that totally!

However, I think the physics in the video looked just fine.

However, I think the physics in the video looked just fine. Whaaa? Setting barrels flying by touching them is fine physics? Since when? Also, I don't think the human body was meant to bend in such ways as the that servant did... Ouch!

Agreed. But you know, there are console players that don't care for it either. ;)

Yeah, that didn't look good at all. I hope they change it.

Oh please. Not all console players are brain-dead and only play games where the only point is to kill. I used to play on my PC, but eventually it got too expensive and I switched to Xbox. Why do you think "console monkeys" would play Thief 3 anyway? :p

What struck me as a bit funny was the "narrative" in the video, particularly in the scene in question. Now I'm not that good at german, I only took it for a year or two until I got too frustrated (the language has no rules, only exceptions!), but I think the narrator just finished saying how cool and realistic the ragdoll effects are when Garrett walks up to the servant finding him unnaturally, even comically, twisted. :P


-JR-

Yeah, his feet just slide to the side like they would on ice or something... totally unnatural, and I hope they have realt animations when they fall instead of just falling to the ground like this one did.

27th Feb 2004, 14:34
The thing about the physics engine in this generation of games is that the ragdoll effect of people falling/being thrown sometimes doesn't look perfect. Get over it! Yes, when the servant was hit by the fire arrows and slumped down, he was somewhat twisted - but thats how the engine interpreted the way he would have slumped against the wall taking into account bones etc.

Didnt it look ok when Garrett picked him up and threw him down in the side room? Sometimes it just looks a bit crazy, and I'll accept that when combined with the way it'll look amazing at certain parts.

As was mentioned before, the video was from a few months back, I'm sure a lot has been tweaked since.

Optik45
27th Feb 2004, 17:43
I swear I posted this already but, I think the Physics are fine. Yeah he twisted in an odd position but thats a heck of a lot better than T1 and T2s body physics. Im sure everyone recalls a guard falling down on a set of stairs, Legs levitating in mid air while his head disappears into one of the steps. Yeah there were a lot of problems in the first two games. Ex: Arrows freezing in Midair. Being able to Jump 50 feet in the air when Leaning around a guard. The Famous Dissappearing Doors. Characters sinking halfway into the ground. I could go on, but These bugs never seemed to bother anyone. I just know when Thief III comes out, everyone is going to spaz out about the Barrels bouncing too much etc etc. People are going to be just LOOKING for things to b*tch about.

Acronomic
27th Feb 2004, 17:51
I never experienced any of those bugs, but I guess you are right, it was probably just because of the surroundings, and we should just be happy with what we've got.

Optik45
27th Feb 2004, 18:24
Oh you need to experience the Super jumping bug in Thief 1. Find any guard that has his back to you. Sneak right up behind him and use the lean forward key to lean around his body, Almost to the point where you are on the side of him. Let go of the lean button and jump at the same time. Might take a couple tries to get it but its hilarious.

One thing to remember, this video is going on a year old now, it's still great to watch, but, it's almost a year old, so somethings are most likely changed, of course. I enjoyed it immensly.
You hear Benny in it too.
