I am currently having a problem with running Thief on my vintage set, which ended up getting cleaned, had a new OS installed and got all mess removed from it.
Original build wasn't that efficient for gaming, so I decided to grab a new video card. I installed it yesterday, got new drivers, upgraded DirectX and faced the same problem like with the older card.
It still suffers from a bad frame rate (I do not expect wonders, but a constant 30-40 FPS would be nice) and cannot run in Hardware mode, while in-game I receive a message which say that the selected video mode could not have been set.
Right now, I have no idea what else could I do to fix this issue. Note that I want to avoid installing unofficial patches like TFix or Tafferpatcher, as it will remove the vintage feeling from the game!
Have you got any idea what could've possibly gone wrong and how could I fix it? Cheers!
