View Full Version : Thief 2: The Metal Age - Game runs REALLY fast...

3rd Jun 2004, 22:21
After being disapointed with Thief 3, I've been looking to get back into playing Thief 2: The Metal Age. So I installed it everything and binded up my keys, but now, for some reason, the game plays REALLY fast. Enemies run like 10 times faster than normal and the same goes for me [the player]. Everything is as if it's in a "fast-forward mode". Please help; thanks.

Oh yeah, and here's my specs: Athlon 64 3200+; 1 gig PC3200 RAM DDR400 Corsair; Radeon 9700 Pro; 420 Watt PS; 80 GB SATA 7200 RPM HD; SB Audigy X-gamer; 52x CD-ROM

Turning v-sync on differs between ATI and Nvidia cards. If you have an ATI card though, right click anythere on the desktop, goto properties, select the Settings Tab, click advanced, click on the '3D' tab, check Direct3D, select "Use Custom Settings", click custom, and move the slider bar next to "Wait for Verticle Sync" all the way to the left. Do the same for OpenGL too.

Hope this helps. Sometimes it doesn't make a difference, but I think it did for me. If not, try Alt-tabing out of thief and then back to it (to alt-tab, hold down 'Alt' and hit 'Tab'.) That helped too for some reason.
