Thief (2014) Guide Master List

The index list for all of the guides I have written for Thief 4.

The index list for all of the guides I have written for Thief 4.

This is a complete list of the guides that I have written for Thief (2014). It (will soon) include help with collectibles, tips and tricks, some fixes for common bugs and issues, and walkthroughs.

It is important to note that much of the information contained in these guides refers specifically to the Steam PC version of Thief, and the Steam Master Thief edition. This distinction should really only affect the usefulness of the “Common Issues & Bug Fixes” section to you – walkthrough help and collectible advice should be unaffected except with regards to controls. If you have questions, I will do my best to help find out some bug fix answers for other platforms, but the Steam PC version is my priority.

Common Issues & Bug Fixes

Release Day FAQ

(This was largely an overview of the issues listed below; the answers here are quite brief. More articles with further clarification and more information will be forthcoming.)

  • Preorder bonus overview
  • How to tell if you have the Master Edition
  • How to get Team Fortress 2 and DOTA 2 preorder bonus items
  • Resolving low FPS issues
  • How to access the Bank Heist mission
Steam Black Screen & Other Common Issues

(This covers several of the early issues Steam users were experiencing shortly after release.)

  • Black screen after launch menu
  • Game won’t launch (Steam) / crashes immediately
  • Steam preload disk write error
  • Stuck in top option in menus

More coming soon as I find them!

Tips & Tricks



  • More coming soon!

Additions made to this list are ongoing. I am one person playing through this game, and I don’t like to rush, but I will hopefully be able to provide a little more insight into the gameplay this way. 

If you have any suggestions for areas you want help with/stuff you’d like to see, don’t hesitate to leave me a comment!
