Hi to all...

I've just passed to Linux and I want to play with my TR2.

I installed it with wine and it runs ok.

But there is a problem: the music. (i mean music, not sound effects)

In old pc (Windows) this problem was solved with the patch of Tomb Raider Chronicles.

But I can't use it, because it recognize that I have not a Windows. Even if I use it with wine.

What can I do?

TR2 naturally is original.

I thought... if someone of you know WHAT the patch did, he can pass me, link ecc. the modification to do.

AFAIK you can't emulate CD audio via Wine...

Read THIS (http://wiki.winehq.org/FAQ) FAQ or look for help HERE (http://www.winehq.org/site/getting_help).

I had it running perfectly. I don't remember if I did something special, but I'll look into it.

i wonder when someone will come up with the gumption to reverse engineer these games to run on Linux?

Game manufacturers can certainly create .deb and .rpm binary installation packages if they felt like it.

St4r, have you ever got some problems with music in windows?
if it is so, do you remember if you used a patch to resolve?

Have you actually installed TR2 on your pc? If it is so, can you read for me some configuration settings? Thank you and sorry for the questions.

spikejones: i think it too... I hope someone will remedy

That's not the question of settings, the thing is that Wine can't properly emulate CD audio interface. The Windows XP/Vista patch does nothing with audio actually, it only sets Win98 compatibility mode for TR2 executable.

I setted wine for Win 98... but nothing. I'm so sad... :(

I haven't got TR installed at the moment, but I'll look into it if I find the time this weekend.
