The Eidos Forums
have details on a second patch that's now available for THIEF
the stealth/action reboot to version 1.2 the next time Steam is restarted. This
addresses several issues, and while they expect this to be beneficial to all,
they also offer instructions on how to revert to the earlier version, which in a
twist, is now considered a beta. Those forums also now have a
on essential tweaks and fixes for the PC edition of the game. Here are the
version 1.2 patch notes:
- Fixed an issue where, for some users, controller
right stick would not turn the camera and controller hints would not appear.
- Fixed an issue where, for some users, the keyboard
mapping menu would immediately map a key and then hang.
- Fixed an issue with the fog when SSAA was enabled
that was introduced in v1.1.
- Fixed a crash when the user had 99 saves and tried
to access the save menu in game.
- Added an option to the launcher configuration
dialog to run the 32-bit version on a 64-bit machine. The 32-bit version has
several features disabled causing it to use less memory, providing a
smoother experience for users with lower spec machines. The checkbox for
this option can be found in the display tab of the launcher options
- Update: Deploy additional DLLs with the game to
avoid issues with corrupt DLLs on user machines, which could cause the game
to not start at all.
- Update: Moved Lockpick and Frame Search helper to
the HUD menu and will now also affect mouse/keyboard.
- WARNING: Disabling Frame Search helper while
playing with mouse/keyboard could make it very hard, if not impossible, to
find the button.
- Various performance improvements.
- Various crash fixes.
