    Like Thief 1/Gold and Thief 2 have their own sound enhancement packs. Isn't there also a sound enhancement pack for TDS with Sneaky Upgrade as well?

    Or you could try this for positional sound+EAX

    -> http://vaporeon.io/hosted/dsoal-builds/dsoal-r391.7z

    Mod the .ini file like this:

    *5.1 speakers configuration
    [General]
    sample-type=int16
    channels=surround51rear
    frequency=48000
    stereo-mode=headphones
    hrtf=false
    default-hrtf=Built-In 48000hz
    drivers="wasapi,-dsound,"

    *2.1 speakers configuration
    [General]
    sample-type=int16
    channels=stereo
    frequency=48000
    stereo-mode=headphones
    hrtf=false
    default-hrtf=Built-In 48000hz
    drivers="wasapi,-dsound,"
    Oh thank you! But thereīs a misunderstanding! I already have Positional Audio running with my creative Soundcard, but I tried out this anyway, workīs the same.
    Itīs just the sound-design in TDS itself thatīs not pleasing me, unrealistic sound-cutoffs, traveling distances and the overall lack of ambience, at least so far for my testing around.

    And clunky footsteps.

    And blackjacking someone feels so much off, sound and animation. Well, Iīll try to ghost anyway.

    No, just little changes for lootpickup and death cries.

    As I wrote before, my main issue is with the system itself. Not easy to fix or maybe not at all. Goes back to Xbox-Limitations. They shouldīve made an alternate superiour PC-version...

    I understand that several people from the original THIEFs were involved. I watched the credits but only recognized Terri Brosius (writing), her husbad Eric (music, sound?) and Lulu Lamer (just in special thanks). I recognized noone else.

    But it still fits in the THIEF-Universe and I was glad to see more from the Keepers. But I wasnīt glad with the enforcers, they just donīt fit the Keepers from the first two gems. And Gamal was really stupid too. Damn, I have a lot of bad memories for this game, have to play it again for getting better ones...

    I stopped playing TDS somewhere in the Cradle because my PC at the time couldn't handle the game. Maybe I'll get the game again and finish it.

    What's that upgrade? Also, I'm not sure I want to play it again because of all the loading zones and the regenerating AI.

    it's a free patch download that's similar to Tfix and T2Fix for Thief 1/Gold and Thief 2 respectively. It fixes a lot of problems and has improvements. I have it installed on my copy of Thief Deadly Shadows and it works just fine.

    Itīs a mod-merging patch with a lot of tweaking options. Pretty easy interface. With Thief3-Gold-mod for removing the loading zones. The best TDS experience you can get.

    What do you mean with "regenerating AI"? Did they wake up after being blackjacked?

    TDS is an average game, and a really bad Thief game (exception made for great soundtrack and the Cradle level). I still can't believe nobody cured it from Consolitis Syndrome by remaking it completely in Dark Engine.

    Love this game to death. Always thought it made for a satisfying conclusion to the series. Though if there was a worthy continuation of the series, I wouldn't complain...

    according to old rumors thief 4 was going to be set in a futuristic world where garrett would have been some kind of detective/???

    i think it was suppose to be a ancestor of garrett so the story line would have jumped in time line ahead

    there use to be some pre art on it back in the day

    dont think there was any deep story line leaks,just a few art pieces of garrett and some street view i think

    but reboot thief was made instead thanks to canada
