A frequently asked question:

The Intro movie keeps repeating and I can't start a game!
It is very likely that you have a Dual or Quad Core processor, which is the cause of the problem.
The solution is to set Thief III to use only one core. This can be accomplished by entering the Processes tab of the Task Manager when the game is running, right clicking each of the Thief III-releated processes (T3Main.exe, T3.exe), selecting "Affinity" and unchecking one of the CPUs.

You can make this change permanent by following Salvage's guide he wrote for The Dark Engine (http://www16.brinkster.com/salvage/thief/darkengine.htm) (Thief 1, Gold, 2 and System Shock 2) and making the changes to T3.exe and T3Main.exe instead.
