Settings definitely too dark. Or you need to clean your glasses. Or get glasses ;)

Use ESC while you are standing over the body. go to TITLE MENU. Go to OPTIONS. On the AV panel, click on BRIGHTNESS. You will see the scene where you are in game.

Slide the Button as far to the right as you need to to give you enough light. You can see the picture lighten as you move the slider.

It shows the part of the game play where you actually are at the time you make the adjustment, so you don't have to do a lot of guessing.

List your SYSTEM

Video Card?
Sound Card?

These are the most important. If you don't know, then go to www.belarc.com and download and run ADVISOR.

It will tell you everything you, and we, need to know.



The Name, make and model of your VIDEO CARD. And the DRIVER VERSION YOU ARE USING.

The Name Make and Model of your SOUND CARD. Or if it is ONBOARD SOUND.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

Have you updated the RADEON CAT drivers?

Use you mechanical eye to find it. Have you been putting out all the torches you come to? I reccomend that you don't do that.

have you tunred up the brightness on your moniter?

after than the settings in thief III make the brightness so washed out it is amazing you can't see everything.

only other thing i can suggest is right click desktop, properties, go to the settings tab, then "advanced" and fing the color correction / gamma adjust. turn up the gamma on your video card.
