Ok fms work now but when i was playing CoSaS: Mission X the Main Menu was messed up, instead the fancy menu that it should be, I got the default Thief 2 menu with the icons to the sides.
When i would play Brawl in the Tombs, The Hammerite Imporium, and Dark Beginnings, I would not get the main menu that fm should have, I would end up with the default menu, with the main heading all blacked out.
And fortuni, in my main thief folder i did not have all of those files, all I have is the books file you mentioned.
Forgive me, but I'm not really understanding this all very well. My inner noob is bursting out.
I have Steam Thief 2. I installed New Dark and Tafferpatcher and then this mod.
I don't see any HD changes, and I can't edit the water/graphics settings other that the T2 standards in Options?
How do I edit the New Dark settings? Please help? Thanks!
Ok I went to increase the gamma in the options menu, and when I set the gamma halfway along the bar in the menu, when I would resume the game my screen would remain in the pause menu with the health and light gem in the screen and I would here the in-game sounds.
Is this a bug for the HD mod, because I never had this issue until I installed the mod
I see my objection about the running interference texture has been ignored. Is it that a. people don't want to comment or b. disagree but are afraid to stir the pot?
Even Gecko failed to address it, but I'm guessing he didn't want to discuss it.
I am just curious to know if it's just me being too picky or if anyone else finds the texture out of place.
@ Gecko......when i asked about a possible HDmod issue with Thief1 HDmod you advised me to check as to whether it was an HD issue by pasting my 'darkgam' file from my old Thief install into the HD mod and if the problem had gone then yes it was an HD issue
I have noticed that with Thief2 HDmod the darkgam file is the same file by both date and size in the new HDmod as it is in the old Thief file, are they the same file.....if so, how can i check possible HD issues with this new mod before posting any problems or issues

sorry i can't be any more help.............
if you have installed the HDmod correctly, go to your Steam/Thief file and the Water_Mod_Tool should be the very last entry in Thief file,
and New Dark Graphics Settings should be immediately above 'NVScript.osm' file.....click on either to use
Gecko, I think texture parkay64 (core_2) should have a terrain scale of 128 instead of 64.
Am I being picky for this? I don't think so.
And I agree with sNeaksyGarrett about the texturing in some places. I know what he means and I agree with him.
That`s why I choose the textures I like from Gecko (great job) and look for other textures elsewhere and in this way I eventually make my own Thief2 from different sources. There's a lot to pick from.
How is offering constructive criticism picky? Seriously now.
For the record, I'm not saying there should be tile in the area outside of the kitchen, just that the cracked rock texture or whatever it is feels out of place to me.
I can't honestly say what it should be, but obviously a tile texture wouldn't make sense in that location as you say fortuni.
Gecko can you explain the main menu glitches, if you can because I really don't want to uninstall everything, no offense to you fortuni.
Also fortuni i just registered 3 days ago, you probably have me confused with someone else.

I'm sure there will be a number of textures with the new HD mod that to your FM author eyes will look wrong, but to non authors such as that flooring will go straight over our heads, we will probably only pick up on really glaring mis-matches, and objects, doors and frobbables that don't work
Do carry on with positive criticism.....just so long as you don't Mind me responding with tongue in cheek answers.....
Don't install it under the path "Thief2\Thief2".
The path should look like this:
(Example 1): D:\Games\Thief2\
(Example 2): D:\Games\SteamApps\common\thief_2\
You can replace the texture with another if you don't like it. I've tested also many T2 FMs with the hdmod and i think the texture fits great all in all...
No they are not the same files. The gamesys from the T2 HDMOD was taken from "AM16s Thief2 Fixed version 1.1e" and i've added some new things for the improved fire flames.
Does that mean by swopping the DarkGam file is the best way of checking for HD2 Mod issues / problems ?
