Surely they do mean 'Flash'?

I was also quite intrigued by the mention of Thief: The Dark Project /
Platinum
in the TTLG thread further down.
Does that actually exist and if anyone knows Platinum edition, does it
differ from Thief Gold?

Nope, it means Flesh. You try animating some NPCs without having any
flesh. It's not easy. :)

It's the regular Thief 1 but patched and relabeled as "platinum" by the
marketing vultures greedy to wring a few pennies from unsuspecting fans.
Some people who have bought it have been upset because they wanted a
version that is equal to or better than Thief Gold.
