Hey guys, I was just looking to see if someone could help me out here!!

I ordered a Tomb Raider collection off ebay, and it came with the first 6 games, all on PC. I just got them all today, and for some reason, they won't work! All of the games install just fine (or atleast they say they do) but when it comes to playing them, the games say they're starting, the screen goes black...and nothing...nothing at all. That's all it gets to! I have 2 Windows XP computers, and I've tried the games on both, but neither seem to be working...

I don't know how much help anyone can be to me, but I just wanted to check before I email the guy who I bought it off and tell them they suck! :ton:

Thank you!

To run TR1 follow THIS (http://www.tombraiderhub.com/faq/tr1.html) guide:

install VDMSound
reboot
use TRAI to install TR1


To run TR2-6 install them and then run Multipatcher (http://www.tombraiderchronicles.com/vista/patch.html).

If you come across any issues after, run Diagnose.exe (http://www.tombraiderhub.com/download/diagnose.exe) and post the report here.

What's VDMSound? It's coming up under the icon where I've already installed Tomb Raider..but I have no idea what it actually it (I'm a little computer illiterate!! haha) Thanks so much for your help!

VDMSound emulates old sound boards under WinXP :)
Just follow the guide in letter and you'll be OK with your TR1.

N.B.: Better use new version of TRAI (from the GUIDE), not the old one coming with your 6-in-1 collection!
