THIEF – New Patch Comes With Performance Improvements & Crash Fixes

EIDOS Montreal and Nixxes Software have released a new patch for THIEF, featuring various performance improvements and crash fixes. As always, this update will be auto-downloaded next time you start the Steam client. You can view its complete changelog below.

THIEF Patch 1.2 Changelog:

– 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.

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
