View Full Version : TR Gold Help

16-11-04, 21:06
I just purchased TR Gold and when I put the first disc in to be installed the screen picture for the main menu of the game is all messed up and I can't read anything. Then, when I exit out of it, my main desktops color pixels and quality is messed up and I have to restart my computer. I tried messing around in the control panel, and the main menu of the game shows up a little bit clearer when I put my computer on 800X600 pixels and have tried using both 32 bit and 16 bit. Nothing is working. I'm not that comoputer savvy, so I don't know much about the technical stuff at all, so if anyone can help me using lingo I can understand, I would greatly appreciate it http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/bash.gif

Well, I found a website that discusses technical issues with this game and that it doesn't work on windows XP (which is what i have), unless you download certain things. So, I shall try that, but I will still appreciate any hints or ideas http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/thumb.gif

FallenAngel81 http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif , for a correct install of TR1, image and sound are equally important:
On this page (http://www.tombraiderforums.com/cgi-bin/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic;f=11;t=001171;p=11) i describe how to install with the Advanced Installer, and VdmSound.
And on this page (http://www.tombraiderforums.com/cgi-bin/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic;f=11;t=001171;p=18) i configure the sound in VDMSound.
On this page (http://www.tombraiderforums.com/cgi-bin/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic;f=11;t=001171;p=20) i explain more about the sounds not working on some PC's.

Thanks! I did figure out how to get it installed and I've started playing it. I will keep those pages in my ''favorites'' list for future reference. Thanks again http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif
