wow, i have never heard of that mod/expansion pack before.

as much as i love t2 - isn't it kinda late for a mod using that engine?

then again i have played t2 just last spring and while it definetly looked dated it's was still acceptable and even had it's "oooh pretty!" moments.

kind regards

It actually looks very good from what i've seen of it, except for one small niggle that bothers me personally.

And it's coming soon, as soon as i get those damn briefings done...

Downloading now. Lame - I have cable interenet and it's only downloading at about 28.3 KB/sec. Oh well, that's still about 8 or 9 times faster than if I was on dial-up.

Hello!

As far as I know, T2x is a very "old" project.
It may be, that the T2 engine is not up to date, but visual effects are half of a game.
Gameplay ist the other half. - And what I have seen in the trailer is great: new enemies, new weapons and great cut scenes.
Those guys got best out of that old and venerable T2 engine ;) .

I think Thief 2x will push the Dark Engine to the limit and I can't wait to try it out. It really looks like a lot of care and attention went into this. :)

It'll take 3 hours to download on this connection. I'll wait till I get home; hopefully the whole thing will be out by then. :)

I don't think so. I think I would've actually preferred to have Thief: Deadly Shadows be done on the old Thief 2 dark engine than how it was done. So, in some respects, I feel T2X will somewhat fulfill those wishes, even though the main character isn't Garrett.

Bottom line is that I've reinstalled and played Thief 2 every now and then several times since its launch, but I don't think I'll be doing the same with Thief 3. Thief 3's good, but just not the same. For me, gameplay is far more important than flashy or updated graphics and Thief 2 has stood the test of time. Hopefully some Thief 3 fan missions will inspire me to re-load Thief 3 and learn to appreciate that game/engine more. In the meantime, though, T2X will be fun to try and I look forward to jumping back into the Dark engine.

Looks like a great project- can't wait to get my hands on it. You know, I just love the Thief universe. Watching that trailer definately gave me the thiefy chills- that good old sense of a really cool adventure about to begin.

Is that niggle a gameplay thing, or just some hole in the plot or something? :)

Niether, you'll probably know exactly what i'm talking about when it's released. It's really nothing major at all, and definetly won't detract from the gameplay at all.

It looks like a mix of a quake 1 and quake 2 mod...

I never really understood this need to push the Dark Engine to its limits.The concept holds about as much excitement as the speeding up an old lady's stairmaster. I just hope the game is good. :)

:) Well, I wouldn't put the dark engine in that same category. It had a lot of potential to build upon. We're still seeing neat tricks that it can pull off. Who knows what secrets are hidden within. To push it to the limit is to discover the unknown.

I've watched the trailer now. :)

In terms of architecture it isn't as impressive as the Hammerite Imperium, and I doubt I'll use any of those newfangled weapons. But as a solid sneaking experience it looks great, and should take its place alongside T1 and T2 rather than just being an expansion. The cut scenes looked great too.
