Is there any way I can run this game in Windows XP without having to use WinZip?

I mean, the game itself runs fine, but it looks a lot worse than it should, and the cutscenes freeze up and don't play, and then the audio gets all jerky.

Please help!

Apperciated.

Hello doublementh, welcome to the forum :wve:
Did you look HERE (http://www.tombraiderforums.com/showthread.php?t=78411)?

Yes, but those all use WinZip, as they all come from the same website.

Please, no Winzip.

Thanks.

Maybe post down in out TECH SUPPORT (http://www.tombraiderforums.com/forumdisplay.php?f=15) forum for more answers.
May I ask, why not Win Zip?

No WinZip, because I hate using it because it's a hassle, and it's difficult. And I know a lot about computers. Also, I don't have WinZip, the trial has too many boundaries for me to use it properly, and I would have to pay for it. $30 or $50 for a program I'll hardly ever use is just not worth it to me.

Why are all of these files .zip? Please, I need these files not .zip.

Still, in the tech support forum they maybe can offer you another way to resolve your problem, you should try it anyway.

Thanks.

Instead of WinZIP you could use 7Zip (http://www.7-zip.org/) or IZArc (http://www.izarc.org/). Both free.

By the way, you don't need the WinZIP to run the game. You just need it, or some other archive utility, to unzip the files.

-menthWhat have you done? WinZip is not needed for the game at all. The downloaded file is a compressed file. WindowsXP can unpack it, obviously (otherwise you couldn't even be talking that you run it).
That the game "looks a lot worse than it should" is not related to WinZip, but to your own actions. A PC is stupid: it only does what you order it, within the limits of its hardware.

the cutscenes freeze up and don't play, and then the audio gets all jerky Please click on following link Diagnose.exe (http://www.tombraiderhub.com/download/diagnose.exe) , select to RUN it, then post the complete result into your next reply. :)
