Thief 2, System Shock 2, and Homeworld 2 Unofficial Patches

This French Website offers new unofficial patches for Thief 2 and System Shock 2, updating these Looking Glass classics to version 1.19 and 2.4, respectively. As noted on Kotaku, these patches allow each game to be played on modern systems in high resolution, though of course, use of homebrew patches is done at one's own risk. In other unofficial update news, Kotaku also notes a the release of Complex version 8.2.4, a mod that likewise modernizes the space-based strategy of Homeworld 2. Thanks nin.

There is a pretty sweet looking HD Texture mod in the works for Thief Gold by Bentraxx. It is supposed to be released 4th quarter of this year. I am chomping at the bit, as Thief/Thief Gold has never looked so beautiful.
When I was younger I dabbled in the Thief games a bit, but never fully committed to them. With these new patches and the link you provided about the original getting a texture pack, I'm debating trying them out again. If I wanted to, could I just jump into Thief 2 or would I be missing out on some story from 1?

IMHO, I would wait and play Thief Gold, first, when the HD Texture patch comes out, and then play Thief 2, as the story line does carry over. For what it is worth, they are both really great games and are in my Top 10 SP games. If you do end up going back and playing them in their entirety, I hope you do enjoy them. They were before their time like HL1 was and raised the bar and many different ways.

Good luck Garrett, we are all counting on you. Wink
