But... wouldn't "Thief Deadlier Shadow" be a bit unoriginal? :D

Frankly, The Dark Mod is as good and close as it gets for me.

Yeah, I was kind of joking about it. Although I found some people take the idea very serious.. 😉

Interesting thought.

Personally I think Thief is done, there was a trilogy. If someone makes a new thief, just make a new game, with a new story, protagonist and possibly gameplay. Thief fans that only want pure Thief gameplay, can just play TDM. Not to say this is the only thing TDM has to offer.

Theoretically it would be really nice to see a remaster of the 3 Thief games as one Thief game,


with an optional city hub between all and full mod support, where you can plant your missions inside the city hub (this means 3 separate game-mode's), just some personal ideas

but I think it's either not going to happen, or if it is, it will not be perfect. Putting these Thief games in a new engine, will alter gameplay, for the good, but possibly also for the bad. We've seen it before..

If you don't have hopes for this particular engine to deliver a Thief game for you, then there is a very similar engine in development, that I stumbled across, called Delightfyl: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCvdgY_EATxvWNjeLYKeFVuA/videos

...or at least I think it's a standalone engine. It looks a bit different, but maybe it's just a mod of this engine.

Anyway, my point is that it's not beyond of possibility for very few people to come together and produce a full Thief-like game. "Nature will find a way."

No that is just based on Unreal Engine (4 or 5):

I already said it, just don't make it official Thief, that raises expectations too high. Also, it's probably better of with indie devs.

Big text moment

Embracer CEO Sees Great Potential for Legacy of Kain Remakes/Remasters/Spin-Offs


If they do a remake of Soul Reaver, I hope they include the content that didn't make it in the original due to time issues. There's a guy on YT that went through all that content and would make the game even better. A 3rd person version of the first Blood Omen would also be great.

      Bumped into an interesting piece of wisdom called Hyrum's Law:
      With a sufficient number of users of an API, it does not matter what you promise in the contract: all observable behaviors of your system will be depended on by somebody.

      I love playing The Dark Mod when it's cold in my place. Bonus points when it's a bit (or even very) dark and it's raining, too.

      I've been having stutters in Vulkan, apparently it's Nvidia Drivers' fault, so I reverted to 512 according to this: https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/forums/geforce-graphics-cards/5/505679/regular-microstutter-in-vulkan-applications-after-/?topicPage=40

      And no, that did NOT fix it. What's going on? My GPU is an RTX 2070, by the way.

      I just figured out how to make subtitles work in TDM (srt) for ingame cutscenes and how to automatically generate the srt file in Kdenlive's speech recognition (I just had to edit it a bit).
      Kdenlive is a free and open source multiplatform pretty advanced video editor.
      Test case is the first builder gost scene in Requiem saying:
      1 00:00:00,180 --> 00:00:02,140 the builder be with you this night 2 00:00:02,600 --> 00:00:04,840 there will be secrets all around you 3 00:00:05,040 --> 00:00:06,439 so have a keen eye The following page gives you the basic info:
      These 2 tutorials give you the info for creating the srt files:
      If you run into the problem the Kdenlive cannot find your Python PATH, then here is a solution:
      Edit: During the installation of Python, in the installer, if you select more options, you can specify to set the PATH. I tried this on another Windows computer and this fixed the issue. Much easier solution.
      This is all the code for the testcase:
      Maybe I will create a seperate (text,images based) tutorial on the wiki.
