Eidos Montreal has just launched a new patch for Thief, and fortunately they didn’t address the money making glitch that we told you about last week. What they did do, though, was to fix a series of bugs and game breaking problems, so you should definitely make sure that you download the Thief Patch 1.2 and install it as soon as possible.
This patch will be applied by Steam automatically when you next start the game. If your game does not update, please restart the Steam client. Here are the changes brought in by the new Thief patch:
– 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 dialogue.
– 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.
