Played Thief 2

Yesterday's post about the Thief games prompted me to wonder how easy it would be to run Thief 2 on my Ubuntu laptop (a Gazelle by System76).


I saw that installation from the CD should work with wine.  But my laptop was having trouble with my old CD.

The $10 download available at Good Old Games worked great with PlayOnLinux.

I did not apply the version 1.19 patch named NewDark.  I still do not have time to play the game.  In fact, it is not a priority for when I do get more free time.  But it is nice to know I could, and that thanks to Good Old Games the game will not go obsolete for a very long time.
