...only the sky's the limit.
You're right. I've been playing around with your 1.11 patch and...wow. I've never seen this game look better or run faster. This 1.19 release is a masterpiece.
The only problem I had -- and I saw someone mention this in the thread for your patch over at ttlg too -- is that I had the control key set up for running in the old version, and it didn't work with 1.19:
bind ctrl +faston
However, the syntax apparently changed for Thief 2 so that "fast" became "run". Why that change was made, I don't know, but my old keybindings, including running, worked just fine when I changed that line to:
bind ctrl +runon
Because 1.19 uses the Thief 2 syntax. Running is pretty important, because it's used for swimming too. Some of those levels would be pretty hard without being able to swim fast. IIRC, you have to be able to do that to dive underwater.
In any case, the crashing is now completely gone with the XP/ATI card combo. Absolutely stellar.
