Thief 2 on GOG.com

GOG.com now offers Thief 2: The Metal Age, a DRM-free version of the stealth/action sequel from Looking Glass Studios. Here's part of their write up on what makes this game special: "Now with even more loot to steal, more clever gadgets, and more ways to play through each mission, levels range from 30 minute hits to lengthy heists with multiple objectives and solutions. Showcasing the incredible dynamic lighting and fantastic audio that made the first game a hit, but with better graphics and AI, Thief 2 is definitely an example of a sequel done correctly, with more of all the best elements of its predecessor."

I played through this again a while back. This link was pretty helpful, although I did find some newer versions of some of the files after some hunting.

Indeed GOG should not be selling - what I consider mostly abandonware - unless they've at least brought it up to date so that it launches under new OS'. Particularly when they're charging $10.

Yup. It's inexcusable really. And before anyone makes the excuse about third-party unofficial fixes, know that GOG already includes dosbox, pre-configured and ready to go, with all of the DOS games in its catalog.

Hopefully the .exe will include all of the necessary files to run the game on Windows 7. The first one didn't work without downloading other communtiy files from other places and messing around with the .cfg. I can do all that with the disc version I have now. If I buy a game on GOG, I am doing so for that "it just works" experience.
