View Full Version : Help Setting up TR1 on Vista

28-04-09, 16:47
Hi guys,

Hoping someone here can help me, my friend gave me all his old Tomb Raider games on pc, and im having difficulty with TR1, I cant get it to work.

I have the Tomb Raider Advanced Installer from TombRaiderChronicles.com, and also another installer that I got from that site to install TR1 on XP.

I have installed TR1 on my laptop with the XP installer and it works but the graphics are really crumby.. then I tried the advanced installer, so I installed it using dgvoodoo and it opens in Glidos and I get the spinning logo, so I have to pay for it.

I thought that dgvoodoo was free, and that i wouldnt get the spinning logo but I still do :o

I hope someone here can sort me out, I have a splitting headache trying to do this lol

Many thanks guys!

1. Uninstall Glidos.
2. Uninstall TR1, delete it's folder.
3. Reboot.
4. Install VDMSound (http://www.tombraiderchronicles.com/windowsxp2.html) and reboot your PC right after.
5. Follow THE GUIDE (http://www.tombraiderhub.com/faq/tr1.html) precisely, choosing DgVoodoo installation.

For Vista all the same, but you'll need to follow Advanced solution (http://www.tombraiderhub.com/faq/tr1.html#advancedsol)

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

"This system does not support fullscreen mode. Chose 'Close' to terminate the application."
