An odd problem....
Windows XP Media Center Edition
2.40 gigahertz AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core Processor
2.0 GB RAM
ATI Radeon HD 4800 Series
I've done some searching, and can't seem to find any info on my particular issue.
Game installs fine. When you go to play, after all the intro/product promo stuff, you get to the game loading screen, when the load completes, the main menu pops up for just a split second, and then the game cuts to the intro movie. If you hit Esc to exit the intro movie, the main menu only pops up for another split second before you are instantaneously and automatically put back to the beginning of the intro movie thing. You can do this endlessly with the same results.... If you are quick enough to select "new game" during the .025 seconds that the main menu is displayed, it goes to the mission briefing screen and repeats, and I quote "I got a tip from- I got a tip from- I got a tip from- I got a tip from" over and over and over. At that point, the game is frozen, and your only option is alt+ctrl+del out, and end program from there....
I love the Thief series, and really hope I can get this game functioning properly as it has been YEARS since I've played it.
Thanks for your time!!!
