View Full Version : Thief - Deadly Shadows freezes and will not re-load

21st Jul 2008, 07:16
Hi there, I'm having a rather annoying problem where I install TDS, run the game, start a new game and have it freeze on the loading screen showing all Black aside from the health bar and navigation on the bottom. After I end the program the game and I try to re-run the game it doesn't work... at all. I just keep getting an error screen that tells me to close the program. When I go into the folder where the game is installed half the files in "System" are deleted. I have no idea what is going on or why and I would greatly appreciate it if anyone could help out.

System Specs:
Asus Laptop M51Sn
Intel Core2Duo t8300 2.4GHz
GeForce 9500M GS 512MB
4 GB's of ram (Vista only recognizes 3 though)
Windows Vista 32 bit

WOW, that has to be the dumbest reason ever for a game to crash like that. Nevertheless, THANK YOU VERY VERY MUCH!!! :lol:

I am too excited to play this game right now. I've tried several times in the past few years but something always went wrong. I loved Thief 1 and 2 and always wanted to give this one a shot.

Thank you again!!!!!!
