which patch from the list is need to fix the above problem, and where do i save it to? Do i save it with the rest of the core design stuff of TR2? HELP me please!!!
The revised tomb2.exe can be downloaded HERE (http://www.tombraiderchronicles.com/cgi-bin/downloads2/dl.pl?ut_tr2_tr2) - once you've downloaded it, overwrite your original tomb2.exe with the newly downloaded version. If you are running Windows XP, you might also try using the newly installed compatibility feature. Open Windows Explorer and browse to your Tomb Raider (ver.) folder. Then locate the game executable, typically tomb4.exe, pctomb5...etc. Right mouse click on the EXE file and select properties, then select the Compatibility tab and choose "Run this program in compatibility mode for..." and select operating system.
Still having trouble...i downloaded the necessary patch but i still can't access level 2...and i'm not sure if i installed the patch correctly. I'm very bumed. i quite like every TR game i've ever played. hope some one has a tip or answer to this.
signed very bumed. :(
The patch is a new "tomb2.exe" file. You have to place it where you have installed the game (C:\ Program Files\ Core Desing\ TR2 folder) replacing the one you have. Before doing that, can you tell us what OS are you running??
OS is Windows XP. as for the folder do you mean in the TR2 folder or under Core Design?
I mean TR2 folder. Not Core Desing Folder...
Before replacing do this: go tou your C:\ Program Files\ Core Desing\ TR2 folder (or wherever you have installed TR2). Right click "tomb2.exe", select "Properties" and select the "Compatibility" tab. In the "Compatibility mode" click <Run this program in cmpatibility mode for> and select "Windows 98\ Windows ME". Hit <Apply> and then <Ok>...
Dun. now whut do i do? http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif
Althought I don't know what did you do (replaced tomb2.exe or run the compatibility mode??), load the latest savegame and try to skip the first level...
i think all i did wuz run the compatability mode. not sure i know even how to replace the existing files. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/bash.gif
Ok... If you ran the compatibility mode without replacing the tomb.2 exe file, boot the game, load the latest savegame (the one just before skipping the first level) and try to skip the fisrt level... http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif
'scuze me for sounding dumb...but how do i skip the first level? and if i am able to skip the level and it still doesn't work then whut? http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/bash.gif
When I say "skip" the level, I mean to try to change the level. Your problem is that you can't access the second level. When you tried to do that, you got a "Fatal" error, right?? Now that you have run the compatibility mode, boot the game and load the latest savegame. Logically, the latest savegame is before changing level. Play the game trying to skip to the next level... If you still can access the second level, refer to this thread again... http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif
i m ust've done somefing wrong somewhere. i can skip the level, but still not access level 2. HELP!! not know whut i doing wrong. maybe i saved the download in the wrong place. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/bash.gif
If you saved the sownloaded somewhere else, there is no problem, don't worry. You just have a spare file somewhere. If you ran the compatibility mode, then you know where tomb2.exe file is. Copy the file that you downloaded and paste it in the folder where you found tomb2.exe
Select "Yes" to replace the old one... http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif
it never asked me if i wanted to replace anything, and i just noticed my FATAL ERROR message reads differently. it say i need version 1516943...the one at the top of this page is different...does that mean anything?
Didn't ask you to replace anything?? :eek: Are you sure that you pasted the file that you downloaded in the correct folder?? Ok, does "tomb2.exe" has a pic of Lara on it?? This is what you should see. This is the file where you had to run the compatibility mode on. The number of the Fatal error differs...
This has happened a lot of times and people that had WinXP managed to solve the problem by running the compatibility mode. Are you sure that you ran the compatibilty on the correct file??
YOU ARE A GENEIUS!!!!!!! WOW!!!! it worked this time. i ran the compatablity test on the wrong prog (color me dumb). I ran it on the downloaded piece and not the one you just told me about. THANX THANX THANX!!!!! :rolleyes: UNBELIEVABLE...now i can go sleep in peace. Thanx again!
Great!! http://www.tcwozere.co.uk/~cracks/otn/wink/thumb.gif Good luck with the rest of the game!!!
won't let me access level 3...have another fatal error message...how do i fix it? :confused: :confused: :confused:
I think it's time to use the patch... Go to the folder where you found the tomb2.exe file, copy the patch and paste it in this folder... http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif
when i downloaded the patch i saved it under core design/tombraiderII files. But i still don't know whut to override. please help. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/bash.gif
think i fixed it for now i managed to get to level 3. :D
