Ok, so I've downloaded a bunch of crap just to get the game going on xp, with dgVoodoo, but the cutscenes look terrible. I couldn't take a screen, but the quality is outrageous. How do I fix this? And also, when I got the game running with dgvoodoo, and started playing, Lara turned invisible!

Lara is invisible
"Ensure Depth Buffering is set to Emulate W-buffering"
Change that setting from dgvoodoosetup under DOS menu.

Thanks so much. :)

That fixed invisible Lara really well, but now the framereate is waay too fast. :/ I checked how to fix it, by moving the cpu usage over, but that didn't make it go any slower, and on top of that, it made it terribly choppy. Bleh.

Do you have both boxes ticked under vdms, performance and DOS scheduling menu. Also untick vesa mode. You could also try reinstalling the game/vdms.

I'll try that, thanks.

Also, my TR2 game is giving me a little trouble. It plays songs, but the cutscenes don't play. Any idea what's wrong? FMVs play fine, but cutscenes don't even start, it's as if they're not even there.

I had the same problems. FMV's quality was crappy doesn't matter what I was doing.


Btw try to adjust your monitor settings with "auto" mode. It reduces a bunch of problems (invisible health bar, frame rate) and in voodoo menu choose the max refresh rate
