Start with FULL SYSTEM SPECS:
CPU
VIDEO CARD
SYSTEM (Vista)
LAPTOP OR DESKTOP
USB DEVICES

Do a search for VISTA. The SEARCH button is on the top toolbar. The game was not designed for VISTA. But you may find more info about setting it.

DDFIX and disabling multi-core CPU's, or changing the compatibility may be a solution.

Some video cards just DON'T RUN T1-T2-GOLD. You need to roll back the drivers or use a "Patch". There is a lot of talk about this problem.

Do a "global" search in the THIEF SERIES forum.

Also try www.TTLG.com in the THIEF forums.

But, for all of that SYSTEM SPECS is always, without exception, the first step.

you know what, if it takes all this work to play thief 2 on vista with all these problems, i will probably just not play it, i mean i have other games i'd rather play like deus ex or invisible war, i like them better anyhow and i've beaten thief 2 before.
