    Cannot run Thief2 after reinstalling windows 10 (not responding)

    I recently had to do a reinstall windows 10 and had to reinstall a lot of games etc. My hardware hasn't changed, but the OS version I think is slightly different (windows updates installed right after the reinstall).

    When I try to start thief2 via steam, with no T2fix, I just see a black screen and the loading icon (the blue circle that spins). The resolution seems low - like its trying to start up in much lower than native resolution.

    I copied the directory and installed T2Fix, now I get the same thing but the resolution of the window it opens seems more normal (windows processing/loading icon isn't huge) but in the task manager it still says not responding.

    I've let it sit for a minute or so, but I don't ever get any sound or video. No errors show up and I didn't see anything in the event viewer (longshot). Any ideas?

    I found my issue in a 4 year old thread, just in case my thread comes up and the other doesn't here it is: https://www.ttlg.com/forums/showthread.php?t=146682

    Remove the semicolon from ;force_windowed in cam_ext.cfg (line 44 on mine).
