ok, so I've edited a texture from a family. how do I get it in game though Do I just ZIP up the whole file and place it in the Thief 2 directory?

thanks in advance

No, Thief uses a pretty simplistic custom resource model. It searches for files in uncompressed directories before the compressed resource files. So for your textures, it'll look in 'fam/<family_name>/<tex_name>.pcx'. This is based off of the main game directory, of course.

Also, if this is a new family, then you need to be sure you've made the 'full.pcx' palette file. If you're just editing an existing family, you can survive with the palette from the CRF.
