Thread: Can't set affinity

  1. #1

    Can't set affinity

    I reinstalled Thief Dark Project this afternoon. I try to set affinity when I am at the start screen, the one that you choose which save or training to play. I right click on the Thief.exe32 and I get a message box that says access is denied. How do I set the affinity in Win 7 x64?

    You need Ddfix installed, it does that automatically. Tafferpatcher also has a multicore fix, though I don't know if it works in T1

    I downloaded DDfix and the thief exe file. Then I DL the widescreen file. Now all I get is a small window. When I run the batch file this is what it says.


    D:\Thief>widescreen\WeiDU.exe --nogame widescreen\DarkWidescreen.tp2
    [widescreen\WeiDU.exe] WeiDU version 21000
    [widescreen\WeiDU.exe] Using scripting style "BG2"

    Installing [Widescreen Mod for Dark Engine Games v6r3]

    Please enter your horizontal resolution. It should be a number, >= 640.
    800

    Please enter your vertical resolution. It should be a number, >= 480.
    600

    This mod automatically adjusts your field of view for the new resolution.

    You can further modify it by entering a percentage (e.g. 200 doubles the fov).

    If you don't know exactly what this means please enter 100.

    What did I do to mess this up? If I tried to input 1920x1200( my screen rez) it errored the same way.

    *just tried to edit the cam cfg file and I was once again denied.

    Sounds like you need one of the patched executables:

    Official 1.33 Patch:

    http://thief-thecircle.com/download.asp?fid=264


    I had to use the Nvidia 5x.xx patch for Thief Gold which ironically seems
    to have fixed an ATI driver specific issue I was having.

    Try one of the patches here:

    Also, "User Account Control" (UAC) may be preventing you from accessing processes in your Taskmanager so I would turn that off...

    I recently had to get TDP up and running on Windows 7 64 bit and summarised what I did in this thread. You need the Tafferpatcher for TG linked in nickie's post which despite the name appears to work fine for TDP.

    Think we should ask voodoo47 to change the title of his thread.

    Is the Tafferpatcher only for Thief 2? I unabled UAC this morning and I was able to set the cpu to cpu 0. My version of the game is 1.33 as it is the Eidos Platinum collection. So should I still DL the tafferpatcher?

    BTW Thank you all for the help. Slowly I am getting to a running version.

    1.06 will have full t1 support, but I need to test things out to ensure it really works.
