No need to apologise at all Angel. Stella's walkthroughs are indeed the definitive Tomb Raider guides, far more detailed than our own, even more detailed than the official Prima Guides.

Annacia, thats a bit personal isnt it? lol. Am starting to worry now cuz a) tr1 didnt install on my computer. 2 and 3 did though. Any thoughts anyone? b) They are the sold out versions so it sounds like I could have a few probs. Oh dear he bought me them as a pre-wedding de-stresser, think they will cause more stress than wedding itself! I promise that I wont neglect forum in favour of playing tr. Will limit myself to 22hours a day :D

Oh dear dreaded tr1 problems http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/bash.gif

GeorgeM
24-05-03, 22:09
No, there's no problem. TR1 just needs a bit of tweaking to get it going. You've got 2 and 3 to keep you going for now, unless you really want to play 1 first?

Well they are ways of getting it to work you could get an installer wizard and glidos from here (http://www.glidos.net) if you dont want to run it with glidos use the installer wizard then run it, the graphics are really bad thou http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

claireandchris
24-05-03, 22:48
Thanks Angel, are the graphics bad just using that wizard, or generally with TR1? Would still like to install it tho'.

Annacia

Jacker hun, I'm laughing WITH you http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/hug.gif

Ditto :D

angelreject2003
24-05-03, 23:00
The graphics are bad with tr1 well with mine they are anyway. If they are bad its better to use glidos.
What exactly is the problem with yours anyway is the screen scrambled on the install screen?

Hi,

Problem is that the game wont install at all. It gets to stage where it Lara says 'lets go adventuring' and then the screen freezes and wont do anything! Dodgy disc or common problem? Please let me know!

angelreject2003
25-05-03, 18:56
What version of windows are you running?

claireandchris
25-05-03, 20:28
I am on xp. I have tried downgrading it to win98 to install but no luckk. TR2 and 3 loaded ok cant understand.

angelreject2003
25-05-03, 20:48
People with xp get all sorts of problems with it being an old dos game. You want to update your direct x and your drivers if you have an Intel Graphics card this probably wont solve the problem. Shut down any antiviruses while installing and playing it. Change your desktop colour settings to 16 bit.

gonga
25-05-03, 20:55
Jacker...chances are very good that it'll work on XP if you have a fairly new computer. You can try the installer wizard mentioned above, or if that doesn't work I can guide you through the process manually. The trick is to run it from a maximized command prompt window while running a DOS sound driver called VDMSound, which is a free download. I found this worked well and gave me decent graphics. So let me know if the installer doesn't work for you.

Thanks Angel, and Gonga,

I think I need to do that direct x thing n e way as the sound is not working properly in TR2 and TR3 but not sure what to do. Angel can you help me with that? Gonga, that would be great if you could guide me through it. Can we arrange a time for tomorrow, really have to go now, how about 8pm gmt tomorrow?

Thanks again for all your assistance you guys.

Jacker.

angelreject2003
25-05-03, 21:32
The new version of direct x can be downloaded from here (http://www.microsoft.com/windows/directx/default.aspx)

gonga
25-05-03, 21:47
Jacker...It sounds like Paul Gardiner's installer (he's the author of Glidos and a good guy too) is the way to go as a first try. Why don't you

1. update Direct X
2. go to the Glidos site here (http://www.glidos.net/install.html) and try Paul's installer
3. and then if the installer doesn't work you can let me know and I'll e-mail you directions.

Gonga do you know what Graphics card will work with tr? My Intel refuses to run the game and i want to make sure i get the right card.

gonga
25-05-03, 23:30
angelreject...I'm running the ATI All-in-Wonder Radeon 8500DV. It's a 64MB card with TV tuner, DVD hardware, digital and analog out, digital and analog video editing, firewire, etc...what a card! I built my own machine. I use the sound that's on the motherboard (ASUS P4T-E).

Annacia...yeah, it's OK to remind people of that option!

OK...I set up an instruction page at my domain on how to set up TR1. Click here (http://danling.com/InstallTR1.htm).

Let me know if you have trouble.

Jacker - let me know if you have any luck with XP + TR1 (trying to get that game to run on my wretched system is as difficult as leaping from flaming pillar to flaming pillar over giant rat-infested waters... but http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/silent.gif !

Draco
26-05-03, 16:57
Maybe so, but that 51 inches looks less than outstanding because of the stretching a measly 640x480 pixels to that size...

I bet you 6 to 1 odds that if I got two HDTVs and hooked one up to my computer and one to a PS2, the PC would look incredibly better... http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/love1.gif
