Ein Tool, um Fanmissionen zu installieren. Kann man als inoffiziellen DarkLoader-Nachfolger sehen.

AngelLoader is a standalone FM loader where you can manage, install, and play all of your FMs in one place. Inspired by DarkLoader and NewDarkLoader, it supports Thief 1, Thief 2, and Thief: Deadly Shadows. It includes many modern features such as rating, game sorting, tag management, easy .dml patching, an extensive set of filtering options, and a fast and accurate scanner for detecting FM titles, authors, game types, etc. For taffers who are used to DarkLoader, fear not - AngelLoader detects game types accurately, every time. No more editing ini files for Thief Gold!

System requirements:

  • Windows 7 SP1, Windows 8.1, or Windows 10 Anniversary Update or newer.
  • .NET Framework 4.7.2 or newer (the Windows version requirements are a direct result of this)

AngelLoader is a portable app, so it must be extracted to a non-protected folder (so don't put it in Program Files or Program Files (x86)). Put it somewhere like C:\AngelLoader or C:\Games\AngelLoader, etc.

For AngelLoader to work with your games, they must be patched as follows:

-Thief 1 and Thief 2 must be patched with NewDark (use TFix and T2Fix respectively for the quickest and easiest experience)

-Thief: Deadly Shadows must be patched with the Sneaky Upgrade (preferably or newer; older versions have not been tested)

Once you extract the zip file, you'll find a manual in the doc folder - AngelLoader documentation.html. Alternatively, you can view the manual online.
