View Full Version : Goofy issue with blackjack!?!

20th Mar 2006, 17:58
I was playing Thief3 today and noticed that when Garrett is holding his blackjack, that his hand is open! When he equips the dagger, his hand is closed like its supposed to be.

Does anyone know what would cause that? I have been tweaking my .ini files lately so I must have messed something up... where should I start looking?

Nevermind, I somehow changed the name of:


to just [HandClosed]... and thats why it wasnt working right.

its all good now.

Wonder what happens if you leave it like that and change Bone=None... Juuudo-chop! :D

haha, that would be awesome! but I just tried it and Garrett just uses the blackjack with an open hand is all. I dont know how to remove the blackjack.

I found that you can't seem to blackjack a person that's sitting in a chair? That's kind of dumb...or am I doing it wrong? In Thief I&II I clearly remember being able to knock out sitting people...

In TDS you cannot BJ a sitting person, nor from the side, nor if it is alerted in the slightest.

Ok yeah - that's wack. Not being able to KO when alerted is fine but when a person is sitting down?

I gotta agree. It makes no sense, not being able to bonk someone just 'cause they're sitting down.

Actually I've managed to do that. Like once though. Dunno how. But if you're feeling reckless, you can take them out with the dagger while sitting. But that's a permanent solution to a temporary problem, isn't it? Ok then. :whistle:
