Thief: Deadly Shadows Cheats

  • Disable loadscreen tips and loadscreen flavor text

    Use Notepad to open 'HelpText.sch' file located in the Thief 3\Content\T3\Books\English folder (make a backup first!). Select all the text, delete it, and then save the changes. This will load screen tips.

  • To disable flavor text that appears on the loading screens

    You need to open 'Quotes.sch' file located in the Thief 3\Content\T3\Books\English\String_Tags folder using Notepad (make a backup first!). Now you need to replace each quote with a " " (a space; do not leave an empty string, or you'll get a message about having no messages to display). Save the changes. Note that removing these quotes may cause you to miss out on certain details of the story, so keep this in mind.

Thief: Deadly Shadows Hints

  • Fast Lock Picking

    Here is a way to pick locks fast!
    Fist when you start picking a lock make sure your lock pick is all the way over to one side (Your pick can be put in different angles) now start moving your lock pick in circles and while doing that hit the ATTACK button very rapidly. Why this works: While I was playing the game a game hint said to hit the attack button when your on the sweet spot of a lock and it will make that part done instantly. thus by moving the pick around and clicking fast you hit it each time!)

  • Arrow and Flash bang Hints.

    If you shoot a moss arrow at the ground it creates moss so you don't make a noise while crossing the pad. If the moss doesn't reach the whole way across you can shoot a water arrow at it and it'll become longer.

    If you drop an oil jar in front of a doorway or a narrow path so it covers the whole way, then lure an enemy towards you so when he's rushing you can set the oil on fire with a fire arrow. When that happens the enemy is killed almost instantly.

    If you need to take out a guard but cant get behind him, and don't want to take him out in regular combat you can just hide in the shadows and shoot him in the head with a broad head arrow.

    If you've fought undead (like in the Abysmal Gale) you'll know it takes at least five arrows in the chest before they die (and sometimes it doesn't even kill them) or it'll take however many knife hits, there is an easy way to kill them. (besides holy water) You can throw a flash bang and that will not only blind them but take away half their life. Another flash will finish the job or you can engage in combat, which is now far easier for the zombie has been reduced to a regular human's life or less.

  • Extra LOOT!

    Okay, In the game after your first mission (not including tutorial) you arrive in your apartment. Leave through the front door and you'll see a door and next to the door a plaque (sign) that says "Landlord". Pick the lock (w/ out the watchman noticing you) and enter the office, don't worry nobody is ever in there, there will be a journal/not (I forget what it is) but it gives you information regarding blackmail. In the not/journal the landlord tells you where the drop is, go there and collect your loot! Also the room has a valuable cat statue on a shelf and other loot items worth nabbing, you know garret & his sticky fingers!

  • What To Do With Bodies.

    Make sure that when you hide the bodies of those you have knocked out or killed that you put them in a secluded or very shadowy area where nobody walks much. If you put a body in a shadowy area and a person walks into/over it they will run for the guards and alert other people, ruining your chance to pick their pockets.

  • Puddle of Holy Water

    Undead enemies such as Zombies and Skeletons will not cross a path that has a puddle of holy water in it. You will first encounter zombies in the ship at the docks (you need glyph door ability to get in) most zombies will withstand most attacks I use Fire arrows which will kill almost instantly. Fire arrows can be found at pretty much any fence unlike holy water which require good standing with the Hammerites and access to fort Ironword or w/e.
