    Thief 2 stopped running

    So my T2 (Newdark 1.27 using Newdarkloader) stopped running for no apparent reason. I run the exe, and it pops up briefly in task manager, then vanishes/ crashes. Rebooted, same issue. also copied the folder to another drive, same issue.

    The issue started after I replayed the FM Inverted Manse. Any idea why this could be happening?

    My Thief log:

    "Inverted Manse" is a Thief 1 FM. Did you try moving the FM archive out of the folder where you place T2 FMs, and possibly putting it into a separate folder for T1 FMs?

    If that is not the problem,
    try to use FMSel just to see whether this also has problems. NewDarkLoader is not being updated/maintained anymore, AFAIK, so maybe that is part of the problem.

    when in doubt, create a new (T2) install.

    what I meant by my post is - has that particular T2 install broken down, or has the ability of your computer to run T2 broken down. try to find out.

    Thanks for all the input. Fixed it by copying my clean install T2 folder and replacing this one.
    Still wonder what could have corrupted it...

    I do know Newdarkloader isn't updated anymore, but I love it, I'm so used to it

    BTW, Renault is right. "Inverted Manse" is a T2 FM. My memory doesn't seem to improve with age.
