I recently bought theif 2 for 5 quid, and found that it doesn't work on my computer, just crashes too desktop once the game starts. I use an integrated geforce 440, 512mb ram, all the latest direct x and nvidia drivers. As this game was bought in its budget case thing it has no sticker saying minimum requirements, but I'm guessing it meets them. Help please.
Crashes to the error message:
"Direct3d device driver does not accurately report texture memory usage. Contact your 3d accelerator vendor for updated drivers."

I found this on a FAQ page.Direct 3D Device does not accurately report texture memory usage, or Help! I only get a black screen! An error message that pops up when starting a level in Thief and Thief 2. You may not get an error message, you may see only a black screen. It primarily occurs on Nvidia Graphics cards running driver versions 5x.xx and above although there are several reports of it occuring on ATI 9xxx cards using new drivers. If you are running Thief 2 you should remove the semicolon (;) from the line ;safe_texture_manager in the file user.cfg which you should open with Notepad.

Huh? that's a little quick isnt it? At least let me see what you look like first!;) :p
For future reference, that problem (and solution) and many other very common problems with Thief are discussed and solved in the FAQ at TTLG (http://www.ttlg.com/forums/showthread.php?t=75031). :)

As stated on the bottum of the Thief 3 box, GeForce MXs are not supported(the 440 is a MX). ;)
