Thief 2 & System Shock 2 Unofficial Patches Fix Bugs, Add Widescreen Support

Unofficial patches for System Shock 2 and Thief 2 have been released by modders, offering widescreen support and important bug fixes.

Some of the notable bugs fixed include doors that would float away and guards that would drown in waist-high water — the latter was fixed by setting their breathing height to their heads instead of their stomachs.

Also included is 32-bit color support; “textures can now be automatically promoted to 32-bit, improving quality and effectively eliminating the palette limit.”

You can download the mods on the forum on which they cropped up. The forum is in French, but the download links in the first post are self-evident.

Is there a patch to make the mutants with infinitely-firing shotguns drop more than one round of ammo when killed?

I’m surprised.

Had to do a few teaks in the config file to fix performance but otherwise SS2 works surprisingly well and is at actual resolution of my lcd.
