I've recently downloaded the game, Thief : Deadly Shadows demo, and installed it. I have successfully installed it, but whenever I try to launch the game, my mouse dissapears and nothing happens. I just keep staring at the desktop. I have the latest version of Direct X (9.0B) and the latest drivers form www.nvidia.com
for my graphics card. My specs are:
256 MB RAM
2.4 GHz Pentium 4
64 MB Nvidia GeForce 4 AGP 8x
Intergrated SoundMax from my Intel Motherboard
80 GB HDD
The download size was Apprx. 450 MB. It's really huge, but I managed to download it overnight on my DSL connection. I really wanted to play this game because the retail version isn't around yet (dealer says it'll come next week, out of stock). I really love the earlier editions, they're really amazing. I've downloaded the most recent drivers for Direct X and my video card. It doesn't help at all. Although upgrading Direct X 9.0 to Direct X 9.0b really improved the load times for Unreal 2.
I launch the game, then I hear a prompt sound and eveyrthing is blank. When I do a ctrl+alt+del and bring up the process tab, I can see theif3.exe, t3.exe running in the background. The only way I can go back to my desktop is by doing an 'end task' on the two programs. I've tried disabling my Norton AV but it didn't help. I'm all out of options! Any help will be greatly appreciated!
