don't worry, you're not doing anything wrong. it's just that t: dp
and gold don't work under xp.

well, they can work, there's some trick to it, but it never worked for me...so...

there are like a dozen threads concerning this in the technical forum. go scope it out and dig into the past for the answer =)

I'm playing Thief Gold on my XP computer right now.

I also had problems trying to get the game to work right away. I would load up a level and would only get a black screen after it loaded.

This was fixed by right clicking the Thief icon and click properties, click the compatibility tab, then click the check box that says play for compatibility with: and choose Windows 2000. Problem fixed.

Another problem I had was no videos would play which was solved by reinstalling the indeo codecs I think the icon in the ThiefDP CD is like iv5codec or something similar. Click that and it'll install and videos will play. This works sometimes, but I recently did a complete fix for it which if it comes up for you I'll copy and past from the ttlg.com forums.
