DO NOT UNZIP ANY FM YOU DOWNLOAD. Read:Fan Missions - How to Download and Play here http://forums.eidosgames.com/old-ubb/

Make a folder for FM's, or make THREE, one to DL all the FM's you want into,one for FM-1 (GOLD and TDP) and one for FM-2 (TMA).

Download and install Darkloader 4.01005 from www.keepofmetalandgold.com or from www.thiefmissions.com.

Download the FM's (all) into the main FM folder. Then copy them individually as you want to play them to the FM-1 or FM-2 folder. You do this because if one is corrupt, it will freeze your system.

Start Darkloader.Then use the hammer symbol at the bottom right center (SETUP) to tell Dark where to find the files. Browse in the top scroll bar to where you have FM-1 and FM-2 folder. Browse in the bottom scroll bar to tell Dark where you have the THIEF folders.

If you move a new FM into one of the folders and the system freezes, reboot and remove it. If Darkloader then works you know the last FM is bad. You can DL it again, to get a clean copy.
