Try the Compability trick: :)
right click on tomb4.exe
select "Properties" and then "Compability"
tick the first square and select "Windows 98 / Windows Me" from the drop-down menu

Check the TR4 FAQ (http://www.tombraiderhub.com/faq/tr4.html). :wve: That's the only thing I can think of; our technical experts should help you further. :)

You should try the update patch from HERE (http://www.tombraiderchronicles.com/windowsxp2.html) (third in the list). Before that, right-click again on the game .exe, go Properties and uncheck the compatibility mode box to turn it off, and click OK to apply the change. Then unzip the downloaded patch and extract the files it includes to somewhere that you can find them easily (ie, in My Documents). Read carefully the instrucrtions in the readme on how to replace the game's files with the updated ones that you just extracted.

If the problem persists even with the patch, post back and we'll move the thread to the Tech Section.

You MUST undo Compatibility mode if you applied it before. Did you do that?

22-10-06, 15:44
i try all mode but no one works :(

22-10-06, 15:55
Again: you may NOT apply compatibility mode.
Nicky said it, the Updater mentions it, and i said it.

You patched the game with the updater. The updater applies an XP-patch. Therefore you may not apply compatibility mode onto the game.

22-10-06, 16:06
can you host screenshot how must look compatibility mode please

22-10-06, 16:24
You refuse to understand. :confused:
Looking at your own image i see you know where to find the compatibility mode.
Now, UNDO the compatibility mode. Tick it off.
Then patch the game using the Updater.

If this does not work:

uninstall the game.
Use trrc.exe (http://www.tombraiderhub.com/download/trrc.exe) TR Registry Cleaner will remove all game settings left behind after uninstalling TR games.
Reboot the PC.
Reinstall the game.
Apply the updater.
Make your settings in Setup. Play the game.

22-10-06, 16:48
Inflex. It is hard to believe you didn't read Nicky's post (http://www.tombraiderforums.com/showpost.php?p=1301784&postcount=5)because you replied to it i try your guild but not works same error :mad: :mad: :confused: :hea: :hea: :cen: :cen:so this is not very smart of you.
