I bought tr1 gold and when I load the game the coloring is all bright blue and other weird colors. I can't print screen it for some reason. Can anyone help me?

Are you running on Windows XP?

Of course it does.

Follow the installation instructions from our TR1 FAQ (http://www.tombraiderhub.com/faq/tr1.html) exactly

Basically, you have to do this to install:

1. install VDMSound 2.10;
2. Reboot PC!
3. Install our TR Advanced Installer,
4. Have the TR1 CD in player with the lowest drive letter ("D" is lower than "E")
5. Launch Advanced Installer, select TR Original. Yes to DgVoodoo, yes to let installer configure soundcard, make correct selections whether you have a nVidia or ATI card.
6. For Unfinished Business: the installer does not work with the UB CD. It is meant to use the downloaded version only. So, download UB from http://www.tombraiderchronicles.com/tr1/gold/index.html (http://www.tombraiderchronicles.com/tr1/gold/index.html) TR1 cd is required to play the game. Install UB by doubleclicking.
7. Launch TR Advanced Installer. This time select TR Gold.
8. Make the same selections as previously.

I still can't get it to work. at http://www.tombraiderchronicles.com/windowsxp2.html do I download Tomb Raider 1 installer and Tomb Raider 1 sound? Or do I install all of them?

When I go into the advanced installer I click install the vdgoo or whatever it's called, then I said install vmd sound and I clicked on the 7 sound. I clicked next and it says to insert disc 1 in the d drive, but it's already in there.

Moved to tech support. :wve:

oocla: Please, edit your post to update it next time, rather than posting several times in a row.

You know I tried to install this, Joseph, but it just wasn't working for me. I then just went back to my Gildos, which I bought a long time ago. Well worth the $10. With all the hoopla over Anniversary, I've stated to replay TR1.

The only problem I have encountered is that the sound effects for walking/running are annoyingly scratchy.

Which Glidos do I download?NO Glidos. You don't have to install Glidos unless you bought it.
You choose between Glidos ($10,-) and Dgvoodoo (free, and incorporated in TRAdvanced Installler, and at least as good). :)

Yes, basically the differences between Glidos and dgVoodoo:

1. Glidos is not free while dgVoodoo is.
2. Glidos can use audio packs and high resolution texture packs (still work in progress).

Otherwise they perform quite the same. Of course some people may experience problems with either one in that case you choose whatever works best for you.
