Our user voodoo47 (thanks!) has prepared a nice little package with most important graphics fixes, prepared by many Thief modders. here. This package contains:
- DDfix: fixes issues with modern graphics hardware, fixes cutscenes, prevents some crashes and errors, changes the hardcoded resolution for menu screen.

Note: We’ve tried these mods out ourselves and haven’t had any problems with them, but whenever you install programs off the Internet or modify a pre-existing program, you’re doing so at your own risk. Our legal kobolds advise us that we need to tell you that we aren’t responsible for any damage, loss of data, or Chuck Testa that may happen to your computer as a result of trying out these mods. Back up all your saves, back up your backups, and strap yourselves in for some awesome sneaking action!
SimonG: The "Mod Spotlights" should be stickyed in the relevant forums. Or at least mentioned on the gamepage.
That's not a bad idea. I'll think about it.
SimonG: For the time being it is on the Wiki. As are all mod spotlights, under the "modding section" on the corresponding game pages.

Wiki 1, GOG 0 ;-P
Sure, but most forums already have one stickied thread; do I really want to add another?

Such decisions keep me up at night. 0.o
