One year ago i bought Thief deadly shadows and i stopped playing because the cutscenes stopped working after a few missions.

After buying a new computer i decided to reinstall this wonderfull game but surprise ! The cutscenes still don't work on this computer ! :mad2:

I reinstalled the indeo codecs and i even tried the tip for the thief 2 cutscenes i saw in the faq but it still don't work.

What can i do ? I'm running out of ideas.

I don't want to give up this game again i hope somebody can help me.
Please !

(I'm french so i'm sorry about my eventual writing mistakes)

hmm well i'm not too technical with this stuff but maybe your game had an error in it to begin with. was there a certain point (certain level or mission) that they stopped working? does it always happen at that same point or they dont work whatsoever?

When i played the game one year ago the cutscenes stopped working after the first meeting with the guardians ( third day ). I can remember that. But this time there is just no cutscenes at all ( even the eidos presentation).

I have some new infos anyway : i saw that i can't open the videos by myself my media player or anything so i think it's a problem with the codecs.

I'm gonna try to install some new codec packs but i'm not very optimist.

Thank you for reply anyway Mattmanr !

I did it !

I reinstalled the game and everything seems to work now.
The cutscenes couldn't work because i modified the DEFAULT.INI to translate the game in french.

Now i can finish the game but in english.

Yep you said it !

I remodified the .ini and the cutscenes are still working so i can play the game normally and in french !

I can now enjoy the game after all even if i'm a bit late.
