Thief 2 display error

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, Due to the Corona virus I'm stuck in Sweden awhile longer. So I finally got Thief2 to work on my mom's machine today, but I end up with a display error. The top half has a bunch of red lines (see attachment), but the game is playable, it's not crashing, but I can't play with all those red lines.

Any ideas on how to fix this? It's probably simple, but I have no clue.

Thanks for any help :)

My hobby built desktop is: XFX Play Hard-nVidia nForce 790i Ultra SLI

Onboard is:

CPU: Intel Socket 775

VGA: nVidia GeForce EVGA GTX-260

RAM: DDRIII 16Gb

HDD: 2 Tb

OS: 64bit Win 8.1

All service packs and latest drivers installed.

What's the computer's specs?

Also make sure you use the T2Fix.

I forgot about T2fix. Where is the link to the broken CD file/program, so I can skip the CD. It used to be in Essentials at the-circle, but now I can't find it.

As for the pc. I remember it being an i5 core, 16Gb RAM, 1Tb SSD. The Graphics card is nVidia Geforce GT 1030. Just remembered I should probably update the Graphics card drivers, it's been 3 years...

Can't help you with the No-CD, I have the Steam version, which you can just copy from the Steam folder, and, I always patch that.

Surely try the things you mentioned, though. Updating the graphics drivers, and installing it with T2Fix.

Not sure if it's a real no-cd, but, it's stated here that it removes the Safedisc protection: https://www.pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/Thief_II:_The_Metal_Age#Availability

I never had to do with that, because, as I mentioned, the Steam versions of Thief Gold and Thief 2 are DRM free, and don't require anything, plus you can copy them to wherever you want, and patch them there.

The Newdark "patch" is a "replacement executable". If a Newdark "patched" T2 install works with no-cd on one system,

it will do so on all systems.


Please visit TDM's IndieDB site and help promote the mod:

It is my understanding that Newdark is a No-cd executable and it is packaged in T2fix

yepp, I noticed. I forgot to Close the cd tray in the dark and it played anyway. It was Before the fix, it kept asking for it.

I have Steam for Thief 4 with the Xbox controller on Win 10, so all I needed was the USB wired controller. But I prefer the legacy keyboard over the controller. Got Xbox for T3, but gave it away to my god kid, cuz I don't like the controller. Could still play T3 with a kb.

Over the years all the Thief games except 4 has the kb Controls set to T1. Got used to it & kept it & reset all future ones to that way. Even TDM. 🙂
