View Full Version : Thief: TDP - Black Screen on level load

25th Jan 2009, 19:26
I've installed DDFIX, optimized with DarkLoader and have also installed "InstallEP.bat", I can't actually remember the name of that patch.

Upon loading a level, I just get a black screen - IE, the game has crashed and I need to kill the process.

My system:
Windows XP Pro SP3
Intel Celeron Dual Core <-- YES I have set the affinity to one!
nVidia 8400GS <-- the problem?

Ironically, Thief actually runs fine under Linux with Wine but the graphics are incredibly messed up for me because Microsoft are being too Communist about their Source code and won't let Wine have DirectX.

Any solutions at all?

When installing DDFIX, you need to be sure that the resolution settings are the same in ddfix.ini and cam.cfg.
