Generic Thief downloads

 

 

Name Description Size n.
GarrettLoader This tool is needed if you want to play Thief 3-2-1 fan missions. Once installed, you have to set the path for the games exe and the fan missions folder (I suggest to make different folders for any kind of fan mission, like Thief1, ThiefGold, Thief 2, Thief 3 and place them in a different partition than C:\ so that they won't be deleted if you have to reinstall the operating system) - WARNING: it has compatibilty issues with Windows 10!
Thief 3 Editor - Last release The last official release of the Thief 3 Editor.
(unluckily due to the my provider's restrictions I had to split the file in three, so you'll need of a software like WinRar or 7zip to merge it and extract it, after having downloaded all the three parts in the same directory.
Thief3Launcher A simple application made to start the Thief 3 Editor and to switch the registers from the editor to the original game and vice versa (after having used the editor you must use this in order to play the original game otherwise it will crash).
Komag's beginners tutorial This tutorial is for anyone who wants to approach to the world of editing on Thief: Deadly Shadows, from the simple drawing of a room to a complete making of a missions. It lacks on how to create objects or NPCs in 3DS Max though. Mandatory.
DXIW Sound Drone v1.0 BETA This program is fundamental for someone who wants to work in Thief 3 mods, because it extracts WAV audio files from the CSCs of the game, makes preview of any music/sfx/speech of the game and show what word are said during a sentence of the game. Mandatory for those searching the original ambient sounds names to add to their zone portals.
CSC Specs Download this PDF if you are editing a Thief: Deadly Shadows MOD and you want to mess with the CSC files, trying to understand how they works in the game. (good luck!) ) - WARNING: very, very technical!
Foobar2000 v1.3.14 Quickly transforms in a chain process multiple audio files from a format to another one (i.e. from .WAV to .OGG, both needed by the Thief 3 Editor to create new sounds). It's alot faster than Audacity and it requires less resource, although this last one is more convenient when you are working with few files.
Photoshop Plugins The plugins needed to handle the DDS format images, both in x86 and x64 format. They work with Photoshop CS4, CS5, CS6, CC, CC 2016 and CC2017. I suggest a free program like IrfanView to just see DDS files. I have to admit that opening Photoshop any time just too see them could be unproductive because of the slowness of the program in starting.
DDS Viewer An useful utility for those who don't have Windows 10. This plugin turns explorer able to show also the preview of the DDS images (not between the default ones until 10).
SMImport This DOS tool developed by Shadowspawn is required if you want to reuse the original .TIM objects (Static Meshes) of the games, after a little adjust in 3DS Max (required to export in .TIM format then). It can be used also to discover what developer has made a particular object, by opening the .E file after the conversion from .TIM to .E.
Thief Fonts The most classical fonts used in Thief: Deadly Shadows in .TTF format for Windows.
New Dark v1.25 The latest patch for Thief II: The Metal Age. It turns the game perfect for the modern computers and screens (supports native resolutions) and enables the EAX technology and surround on ANY sound card. It makes playable also all the cutscene movies.
Thief 3 broken CD/DVD This patch has to be used when you have installed Thief: Deadly Shadows from a CD-set/DVD and the game asks for those memory support but they are damaged.
