2.55.2's download has a password on the zip file, though the spec release works alright. I am meaning to try out the original pre-patch release of Requiem, but at the moment the game will just crash when I try going ingame for the 3DFX.exe, regardless of voodoo version set, and input is completely lost when attempting the D3D version.
On an unrelated subject, I've been attempting to use dgvoodoo with older versions of Thief: The Dark Project, Thief Gold and Thief II. I've had mixed to reasonable results with the former two, but Thief II as is will not act correctly on screen changes from the menu to ingame, sometimes just crashing, and in Thief II's case there's been documented problems for years with it's fog not being rendered on modern GPUs or with modern DirectX.
This had been fixed with a community made directx wrapper titled ddfix, but ddfix carries it's own issues with regards to capturing the game. It wouldn't be a big deal except that the older versions of the Thief games have gained interest again recently with the thief speedrunning community, where the modern fan patched versions of the game have fixed alot of the older engine issues, but also fixed exploits of use to runners.
It's rather hard testing the game in demo form, as Thief 2's demo is based on an older engine that does not have fog and is effectively a different engine from the final game, and it was never even technically released, and most downloads of it today are fanmade versions using the new engine.
