Hello everyone,
i just ask a little help ro configurate TR1 on WinXP. I read many posts about it, and configurate TR1 with TR1 installer, installed vdmsound.2.1.0.exe, i got an Nvidia video card GFX 5200 128Mb.
After i clicked on TR1 installer in effectly it founds the CD-ROM and it seems everythings works fine, coz it creates C:\TOMBRAID file and a new icon on desktop, Tomb Raider (VDM), but when i click on the icon it stars on DOS mode, it writes
Now starting the tomb raider original after it returns to the desktop.

Here it is what is write on DOS:

Tomb Raider Advanced Installer v1.03 (build 36)

OK i found my way ^_^
NOw i would ike to ask 2 things:
1. Under Glidos the joystick works.
2. Under the TR1 Installer (Glide Tomb.exe will be copied) the joystck is not recognized.
There is any idea to the question 2 to solve the problem? Any patch to recognize a winxp joystick?

P.S. The joystick works under win95/98/me/NT/2k/xp
