    I disagree. I think 2.11 fixed lots of issues. You still don't tell us what the "bugs" are, so it's not clear what you mean. 2.12 will also fix bugs as well, just as the versions before that and it will also add new features.

    You can ask our developers about bugs, settings that don't work, or code errors . For example. You can contact Mr. Stgatilov.

    I can  test version 2.11a seriously, especially since I have a huge long-term experience in this, but what's the point in this? If new features are added to the TDM 2.12 and many new bugs appear, will I have to test the game again? and so endlessly?  )

    sorry, but I don't have that much time.

    Therefore, I suggest to take a break and focus on finding bugs, broken variables, settings. then  to release the game version 2.12. and then add new features for version 2.13. Players will decide for themselves which version of the game to use.

    (typical ones like noclip and notarget) they were working fine.

    the noclip command is not working properly. Enter the walk command to exit this mode and the player will not be able to walk with his back straight. The body position will change.

    Also can you elaborate on the "garbage"? I think some examples would be useful.

    I've written a lot about garbage in the past. about variables that don't work. I also wrote about bugs. Other players also wrote about it. There is a trend-adding new features breaks the game. So I suggested that you take a break and fix all the bugs and variables that don't work. or they don't work correctly, without adding new features in the version 2.12

  3. dear developers. I've been following this project for a long time. And I noticed that adding new features to the game breaks things that used to work well in the game.

    My suggestion: Stop adding new graphical features to the game, stop adding new variables and settings. There is a lot of garbage in the game and the developers know about it. Lots of variables and settings that don't work. For example, version 2.11a has a bug with cheat codes.

    Please make a stable version 2.12, which will fix only bugs and remove garbage in the game code

    Adding new features to resume in version 2.13. Not all players need modern features. Many players only need stability and high performance. Allow these players to play on version 2.12

    Open Hex Editor. I recommend HxD. Find  thiefgame.u.

    To disable shroud - Make a backup of thiefgame.u and then search (in Hex value) for:

        02 CD CC 4C 3F 36 CC 66 36 BC 00 01 9C DE F4 3E
        Replace with: 02 00 00 00 00 35 CC 66 36 BC 00 01 9C DE F4 3E

         to disable white flash :

        33 33 33 3F 36 18 4D 01 CD CC CC 3E 38 A9 4C C0
        Replace with: 33 33 33 3F 36 18 4D 01 00 00 00 00 38 A9 4C C0

    • Disable in-game fog -
      • Go to Thief\ThiefGame\Config ThiefGame.ini and then find [Engine.WorldInfo] andgo to line 66
      • And then change mbEnable=TRUE to mbEnable=FALSE and then save the file as read only.

    Your advice causes new bugs...  For example, in the first Сutscene of the game, the smoke from the pipes does not become realistic.

    The right Solution:


    DefaultPostProcessSettings=(mSSAO=(mbEnable=TRUE, mIntensity=1.0), mWind=(mbEnable=TRUE, mbAffectVelocity=TRUE, mVelocity=(X=25, Y=10, Z=10)), mFog=(mbEnable=TRUE, mbEnableOutdoor=FALSE, mbEnableColor=TRUE, mOutdoorTex1=LA_000_Core_Fog.Layer01, mOutdoorTex2=LA_000_Core_Fog.Layer01, mOutdoorTex3=LA_000_Core_Fog.Layer01, mLayerOpacityCurve=PROG_3D_PostProcess.FogNearPlaneDensityCurve))

    This needs to be done in two files: ThiefGame.ini and DefaultGame.ini

    The fog is being removed in many places... It is not possible to completely disable fog in this game through the config

    I tested the old version 2.07, it doesn't have this bug...   For some reason, creating new versions of the game leads to new bugs.
    I already thought about trying to transfer all the new textures, models, scripts and sounds from the new version 2.10 to the old version 2.07. But I'm not a programmer, it's very complicated.

    and ensure that the cvar values associated to them are archived so that they persist.


    Tnank you!

    How can I look this up in a text editor? I want to see the archiving status of this values

    The following cvars are marked as "archive", meaning that they should be saved between sessions:

    But these  head-bob variables are not saved. This problem was already noticed in version 2.07.

    Let's do this experiment:
    1. Move my autocommands.cfg to the game folder

    2. Open the console and look at the values of head-bob variables in the game menu (screen1.jpg)

    3. Load the mission (Mission 2: Tears of St. Lucia) and open the console. Looking at the values of the variables (screen2.jpg)

    Conclusion: the values of these variables are reset for some strange reason. Perhaps this can be somehow fixed in the next patch for 2.10

  9. Hello dear developers! I tested version 2.10 and noticed a performance improvement over version 2.09. This pleases us! But I also noticed a bug with the sound... The player, when walking to the left (button A), the volume of the sound of his steps goes down. In some missions even this sound is inaudible...
    Please, if possible, make the volume of the step sounds the same for all four directions for realism.

    I ask you, if possible, to make a fix to version 2.10, as it is a very long time to wait for the release of version 2.11

    Try this (note: still unoffical, but already named "version 2"):


    Much better (48-60 fps).

    Before that I had 20-35 fps.

    But I want to repeat my idea. The best solution is to give the player graphical tweaks that improve performance. After all, future mission developers will probably use resource-intensive technology... Do we players have to write about performance degradation every time? Give us a tool to manage graphics in missions and we will solve the performance issue ourselves

    could you try entering killmonsters in the lava cave?


    You're right... The developer of mission did something wrong with the models.

    I entered the command "killmonsters" in the console and FPS went up to 60 !!!!!!!!!!!


    P.S. It would be good to come up with a variable. which could lower the quality of the models. it's not fun to play without models )

    Did you try the parallel jobs cvar like I advised above?

    I don't know what you mean. Which variable do I need to change?

    I wrote above that I got a big boost in fps with this line,

    r_SkipUpdates 1

    but this line also introduced bugs to the mission... Turning off the shadows completely didn't help

    BTW, for reference, what are your specs?

    is that a question for me? I've already answered it. I have good specs except for the video card. nvidia GT1030 2GB VRAM GDDR5. all missions on the old version of the game 2.07 go without lag (until approximately 2018).

    New modern missions have become very large and video card demanding
