I haven't been able to get bloom to work in Thief Gold... I want to try it out...
I'm not as big a fan of the fan HD graphics patches, as I prefer using the original artwork... Some of the fan stuff (or simply tossing the Thief 2 assessts into thief 1) changes the art styles, colors etc, completely
Same here I am a sucker for the classic/orginal graphics mainly because that's how I originally played the game way back. I even play Ultima 3 with composite CGA graphics(not the four shades of purple CGA) instead of the EGA or VGA tile sets since that's I originally played it
