There is a known crash issue if you have any usb control devices connected to your pc while using Thief. This could be any flight stick or USB controller. Unplugging these devices before changing your controls could eliminate the crash problem.


Post back if you are still having problems.

could also be USB mouse, keyboard, camera, webcam...unplug any of those and possibly buy the little green and purple adapters for your keyboard and mouse. those are great cuz u gety2 extra USB slots and u wont have crash problems in thief. hope that works.

i cant because for some reason my mouse doesnt work with the green adapter for my mouse, and i have a headset that goes through my usb port and that has my only sound card in it. but it doesnt matter i figured out another way to change my controlls, i just goto where my controlls get saved in a folder and i changed them there

good thinking. seems in the game it doesnt like it. it does work from the file though correct?
