    Thief 2 runs only fan game HELP

    So I just bought a new gaming computer. Installed thief 2 from original discs and the taffer patch. When I start the game it plays one of the fan games NOT the original game. How do I fix this? Thanks in advance.
    Ps: thief 1 installed and plays perfectly.

    Some help please:

    -What "fan game" is it playing? (I'm assuming you mean fan mission).
    -Do you use a mission loader like Darkloader or FMSel to start up Thief?
    -Since it's a new PC - are any fan missions installed on your new machine?

    well, that can only happen if you actually have a FM loaded in some way. create a new, clean T2 install and you should be fine.

    Yes fan mission.
    Yes I have darkloader installed. However this happens even when I start the game by clicking its own icon, not via darkloader. I will erase darkloader and the fan missions and re install.

    If you're using the original DarkLoader I would recommend uninstalling that and using NewDarkLoader.

    yep, there's your problem. get rid of it, never touch it again, and all will be good.

    Sounds like you just didn't uninstall the FM, which you must do to play an OM with old Darkloader. You should do as they suggest, though, and use NewDarkLoader instead.

    New darkloader? Thanks a lot. I had never heard of it before. Will do that.
