This is a great box set, and for any fan of thief is a must have. If you have never played thief before, prepare to become addicted. The earlier games, 1 and 2 are the best in my opinion, it's especially good that the first thief is the Gold version, which is very rare to get hold of originally, and contains 3 extra levels. (I DO have it as I have been nuts on the game since It came out), but getting it to run on a modern system is very hard. This version at least skips the annoying NT message, which stops the games loading in the first place. Now how to get them to work, he he I managed it, not without much trial and error. Firstly my operating system is Windows 7, load thief 2 into the games file, not program files x 86, (this is a bad idea) once the game is installed download tafferpatcher, and extract into the thief 2 file, game runs like clockwork after, easy peasy! Thief gold, SLIGHTLY harder, but not impossible, once again download into games folder, then download ddfix, and extract into thief gold folder, don't run it, as it will not work that way in windows 7, you just need the files from ddfix for now. delete the thief exe in the thief gold folder, and shortcut if necessary, and replace with a PATCHED thief exe, which skips the ddfix install, place in thief gold directory. Go to the cam.cfg file, alter the screen resolution line to 800 600, you may need to open this as administrator before it allows you save it. Once saved thief gold is up and running, yay. There is one slight annoying factor, as I could not get the videos to work, but I bypassed this by watching them seperately, by manually opening the MOVIES file. Phew! There was no problems that I encountered installing thief 3 on windows 7.
