Hi everyone :wve:

Since my previous thread about this has died, I've created a new one, because TR1 still doesn't work on my computer. Hopefully here, I can explain myself better :)

Now, my computer is Windows 98. The System Requirements on the back of the TR1 cover says that it supports all major soundcards, and SVGA Graphics card, which I don't know what it is.

When the menu comes up after inserting the CD, it gives me the option to set up the sound. Now, I know that using "Auto-Detect" results in freezing, possibly because it detects the wrong things. When I press "Auto-Detect" it gives me "Sound Blaster 16/AWE32", Port 220, DMA is 0 (I don't know why it's 0) and IRQ of 10.

The above results in freezing, even when manually selecting the same ones. I've tried doing IRQ settings of 5 and 7, DMA of 1, but still no result.

So, any help would be greatly appreciated ;) And how do I post my "dxdiag" here?

Go to http://www.tombraiderhub.com/faq/index.html download Diagnose.exe prog run it & post the report here ;)

You must also set the following variable in c:\autoexec.bat
SET BLASTER=A220 I5 D0

Then in TR setup screen choose not Autosetup, but:
Sound Blaster 16
Port 220
IRQ 5
DMA 0 (same as in SET BLASTER variable) & give a try ;)

BTW, you can run TR under Win98 using DgVoodoo ;) (see FAQ - link above)

Yes, but that sounds like it will be quite difficult to do because I don't have internet access to the computer that I play my TR's on.

Is there some other way? Transferring it from this computer to my Tomb Raider computer, maybe?

Yes of course, Ikas. Download Diagnose.exe (http://www.tombraiderhub.com/download/diagnose.exe)

Btw: i suggest you select "Soundblaster". Should work.

Yes, but now there's one problem... Diagnose.exe does not work on my other computer since it's Windows 98. It's only valid for Windows 2000, XP and Vista. Is there some other kind of Diagnose program that works on Windows 98?

Thanks again :tmb:

I've a question for you Joseph, I just got a fresh copy of TR1 and am having issues getting it to start as well. It crashes immediately after clicking on the Icon. I've tried the suggestion in the FAQ about changing the settings in the VDMsound tab but it's still doing the same thing. Any thoughts or should I just post the results from diagnose.exe?

Joseph
21-12-06, 01:59
Yes post it please. And also explain step by step how you installed TR1. :)

Installation was followed to the letter per the FAQ using the Dgvoodoo option. After the initial installation was completed, I attempted to run the game and got as far as the DOS boot up screen but then was kicked back to the desktop. I then tried the suggestion for dgvoodoo by changing the settings for the soundcard per VDMsound. Same problem. Here's the report. I have a feeling this is a bit too long if so, let me know and I'll edit it down. Thanks.

Do not select SoundBlaster Pro 2
Select SoundBlaster Pro or Soundblaster.

Btw: you should update your X-Fi drivers. Start here: http://us.creative.com/support/downloads/

And update your NVIDIA drivers. HERE: http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp_2k_93.71.html
Driver Installation Hints


"Download Accelerator" utilities should be disabled when downloading any drivers.
Do not run virus protection software in the background while installing the drivers. This prevents the driver from configuring itself properly.
Before installing new drivers make sure you uninstall all NVIDIA display drivers from the Windows Control Panel. Browse to the Start Menu > Windows Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs and search for "NVIDIA Windows Display Drivers" or "NVIDIA Display Drivers" and select remove.

When I press "Auto-Detect" it gives me "Sound Blaster 16/AWE32", Port 220, DMA is 0 (I don't know why it's 0) and IRQ of 10.

The above results in freezing, even when manually selecting the same ones. I've tried doing IRQ settings of 5 and 7, DMA of 1, but still no result.

IKAS, unless you have a Sound Blaster 16/AWE32 card in your PC, DON"T select it and do NOT do autoselect, it will always freeze.
As i said: just select Soundblaster.
So, when you are on that soundcard select menu, and Sound Blaster 16/AWE32 is pre-selected (or any other device), just press "Enter". Then you can, with the arrow keys on your keyboard, select "Soundblaster" from the list. :)
Then, the other settings should be:
port = 220
IRQ = 7
DMA = 5

Did you read my post #11 (http://www.tombraiderforums.com/showpost.php?p=1433932&postcount=11) ? Please try that first... :)

I tried that, and there doesn't seem to be a DMA of 5. It only has 1 for Soundblaster.

Perhaps I need to delete the game completely, then install it again?

Does the dxdiag offer anything useful?

Joseph
21-12-06, 04:16
Use DMA1 then.

You have a very old computer... :(
Yet it should be able to run the game.

You don't have a soundcard. This is onboard chip: ESS AudioDrive Playback (220) (emulated)

21-12-06, 04:44
Ikas90, for your PC you are to set BLASTER variable in autoexec.bat as I've posted before:

SET BLASTER=A220 I5 (or I7) D1

and then choose these settings in TR sound setup ;)

@Joseph: I've tried that, and everything else, the game just doesn't want to work properly. I mean, I can play it, but there is no sound, no FMV's, and the graphics are very poor.

So what does it mean if I have an onboard chip instead of a soundcard? Do I need the soundcard and the graphics card?

@EscondeR: I tried typing that into "Run" and it doesn't do anything.

EscondeR
21-12-06, 05:17
@EscondeR: I tried typing that into "Run" and it doesn't do anything.

Nope, not into Run...

Run Explorer, open your system drive, find file named autoexec.bat in drive's root. Right click it then and choose edit. It'll be open in Notepad. Add this line I told ya as a line in this file, then save and close Notepad. Reboot. Run TR setup and make settings... ;)

BTW, you must have some legacy DOS mode drivers for your sound card. Try to find their settings for address, IRQ and DMA channel ;) Plz, post the content of your autoexec.bat & config.sys files (config.sys is in system drive's root also, you probably are to enable showing system files in Explorer to open it)...

Do not select SoundBlaster Pro 2
Select SoundBlaster Pro or Soundblaster.

Btw: you should update your X-Fi drivers. Start here: http://us.creative.com/support/downloads/

And update your NVIDIA drivers. HERE: http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp_2k_93.71.html
Driver Installation Hints

"Download Accelerator" utilities should be disabled when downloading any drivers.
Do not run virus protection software in the background while installing the drivers. This prevents the driver from configuring itself properly.
Before installing new drivers make sure you uninstall all NVIDIA display drivers from the Windows Control Panel. Browse to the Start Menu > Windows Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs and search for "NVIDIA Windows Display Drivers" or "NVIDIA Display Drivers" and select remove.

Ok, I tried what you suggested and it is still crashing after the dos screen comes up. All drivers are up to date and my virus scanner was shutdown prior installing them.

So what does it mean if I have an onboard chip instead of a soundcard? Do I need the soundcard and the graphics card?


So you get the game to run, that is important. Have you ever managed to play this game with sound on this PC?
Do you get no sound at all, or do you have footsteps, gunshots but are you missing the Passport screen Intro music and environmental sounds?
But if you have no sound at all, the problem is somewhere in your configuration.

Most important is that you have a cable connected between your dvd/cd-player and your soundchip. Also: your dxdiag does not mention what cd-rom or dvd player you have... but it should.

Ok, I tried what you suggested and it is still crashing after the dos screen comes up. All drivers are up to date and my virus scanner was shutdown prior installing them.
Mr. Burns, could you post your DgVoodoo settings?

Mr. Burns, could you post your DgVoodoo settings?

Sure, dumb question though. How?

Open TOMBRAID, doubleclick DgVoodoosetup.exe. Select DOS Platform. Post printscreens of: global tab, and glide tab.

But on the other hand: crashing already at DOS screen can not have anything to do with DgVoodoo ....

Hmmm... Mr. Burns, could you post your updated diagnose exe report please?

My thought at the moment: your PC is very much OK! Maybe you have done something not exactly right when installing. :pi:

I wouldn't be surprised honestly, I was pretty tired last night when I tried to install the game.

The drive letters...
You have C:\ and F:\ on your first harddiskdrive;
then D:\ and E:\ on your second and third harddiskdrive.
Why is that? Why are they not in logical following order?

Mr.Burns

F is a partition off the C drive I've been using previously for a virtual memory drive. This was mostly during my time with less than 1GB of memory but I'm probably going to get rid of the partition soon anyway. As to why they aren't in order, perhaps it's because C and F are on the same physical drive?

Joseph
21-12-06, 17:07
But F is visible in Dxdiag. If you are prepared to get rid of it, just do it now.

As to why they aren't in order, perhaps it's because C and F are on the same physical drive?No, it is because you made the virtual drive after you installed the second harddrive.

But the problem i sense is that the Sony dvd-play/burner is now H:\ while drive F:\ is only virtual.

Mr.Burns
21-12-06, 17:11

No, it is because you made the virtual drive after you insatalled the second harddrive.

Well, since I'm going to be reinstalling windows, now is as good of a time as any. So, if I get rid of the virtual drive and get the dvd player set correctly, you think that this might reslove the problem?

Joseph
21-12-06, 17:23
Actually, there is a very good chance! :)

To start afresh is the best way to get rid of problems. You'll be certain the configuration is OK.
Your hardware is OK, so it should work. :)

Mr.Burns
21-12-06, 17:42
Well, I'll wipe out and complete a full reinstall later today. Thanks for your help Joseph.

Joseph
21-12-06, 17:51
Maybe you could just change drive letters of D E F and H, but trying to solve the problem is most of the times more timeconsuming and headache-producing than simply reinstalling afresh, so if you are prepared to do it.... just keep the head up and do it, CHEERS from me! :) :tmb:

So you get the game to run, that is important. Have you ever managed to play this game with sound on this PC?
Do you get no sound at all, or do you have footsteps, gunshots but are you missing the Passport screen Intro music and environmental sounds?
But if you have no sound at all, the problem is somewhere in your configuration.

Most important is that you have a cable connected between your dvd/cd-player and your soundchip. Also: your dxdiag does not mention what cd-rom or dvd player you have... but it should.

I manage to get the game to run, yes, that is when I select "No soundcard" and I don't do any of the settings. When that's done, the game installs, but it doesn't automatically create a desktop shortcut to it. I have to go into "My Computer" and go to the "TOMBRAID" file. It hasn't got an Icon.

So, I load it up and the FMV works fine, except no sound. There is a Passport screen, and I start a new game and it works like normal, except there is no sound, and the graphics are very poor. I'll try and get a screenshot.

From the TR1 readme (http://www.jozefdekkers.nl/Trforum/Trclassic/TR1/TR1readme/TR1Faq.htm) (which is also on your TR1 CD)
To get SVGA mode, press F1 when you are in the game. This will let you switch modes between VGA and SVGA. If in SVGA mode your speed is slow, press F2 to reduce the screen size. F3 to increase it back. Refer to the manual, page 4, for more keyboard commands.

Hi I need help with TR1 too. So I have installed it with Glidos and everything was ok (except for that I cant view FMVes and there's no normal sound only the music background) till I reached the lost valley! Then on the screen " Glidos" showed up with 3D letters. And I tried to take it off by using very different ways like even playng the game without glidos (It doesnt work) but when I reinstalled glidos it was the same thing! Can u help me somehow? :)
And I want help with the sound. I read everything on a page I saw to help me install tr1, I downloaded and installed VDM sound and I tried the both options in the TR1 installer but it still doesnt work! I cant hear her footsteps, shooting etc
PLEASE HELP

Joseph
22-12-06, 19:13
Nightwish: you are using a demo version of Glidos. What will fix the spinning logo you are seeing, is buying Glidos.
Or better: change to DgVoodoo (included in Advanced Installer, reinstall of TR1 required).

Mr.Burns
22-12-06, 19:24

Well, you were right. A fresh install along with getting rid of that partition has allowed TR1 to work. I'm in the middle of a defrag but then I'll give it a go to see how it runs. Thank you again :wve:

1. These files belong to DgVoodoo program:
Dgvesa.com
DgVoodoo.exe
DgVoodooSetup.exe
DgVoodoo.vxd
glide.dll
glide2x.dll
glide2x.ovl
So move them to c:\windows\system (anyway in the "System" subdir of YOUR windows location) directory for they are available not only to TR but to other games need them also.

2. Then start DgVoodooSetup.exe, choose the DOS platform and make settings on General tab as described in TR FAQ (or as on screens I posted), press OK. The program closes, but next time you run it setting will be the same.

3. Start DgVoodooSetup.exe again, choose the DOS platform and make settings on Glide tab this time as described in TR FAQ, press OK. The program closes, but next time you run it setting will be the same.

4. Don't touch DgVoodoo setup again, go to Tombraider folder and start tomb.exe instead. ;)

BTW, did you install VDMSound first as I recommended?

Ok, I've gotten the game to load up and run. Two problems.

A: Every time I try to save a game it's corrupted. I'm aware of the affinity issue but every time I tried to switch out of TR to the desktop, the game crashes.

B: (possibly related to the first?) If I either let the fmv's play through or finish a level, the game crashes.

Thanks in advance.

You have not first installed VDMSound 2.10 (completely, see the FAQ) then rebooted the PC. That causes the icon to look sick.
The shortcut is not an unknown format, is a .VLP file.

>>> Please, before you change settings in DgVoodooSetup, always first quit the game and make sure dgvoodoo.exe is not running anymore. (Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to launch TaskManager, Processes tab, look if it is in the list, then right-click and "end process").
While dgvoodoo.exe is still running on the background, you cannot make changes.

>>> DgVoodooSeup menu always by default opens in the Windows Platform. For TR1, only the DOS Platform matters. First thing before making changes is select the DOS platform.
Changes you make in DOS Platform, will not be implemented in the Windows Platform.

Despite you read the instructions (as you say) you don't seem to have a clue.

With all this files placed to %windir%\system (generally every dir listed in PATH system variable fits ;) ) you can EASILY run many old games in 3D Hardware even if they crashed on your system before ;) I've checked myself TR1, UB (of course), Quake2 (in Glide :p), Winquake, NFS up to 3, Unreal, Unreal: Return to Na-Pali, Unreal Tournament... :D All work perfectly ;)

Of course, if you prefer to place all these files in EVERY game directory...
And set preferences for every instance... :hea:

Anyway, IT IS NOT NONSENSE, SORRY

-- Edit --
Taken from DgVoodoo readme:

>> Installing dgVoodoo to run DOS apps
...................................

>> Just copy the following files into the proper folder, depending on you do global or
>> local installation:

>> GLIDE2X.DLL
>> GLIDE2X.OVL
>> DGVOODOOSETUP.EXE
>> DGVOODOO.EXE
>> DGVOODOO.VXD (this file is required under Win9x/Me only, WinXP won't miss it)
>> DGVESA.COM (if you need VESA emulation)

>> After doing this and setup, DOS applications can be launched (VDD mode), or
>> you have to start the server first, and then DOS applications can be launched
>> (server mode).
...........................................
>> Global installation: copy all the needed files to your Windows folder
>> Local installation: copy all the needed files to the folder of the application/game you
>> want to play


So, of course they can be placed in TR folder and this will be Local installation. And I suggest Global one ;)

I just do not agree about the global installation as the glide wrapper settings may vary from game to game. That's the reason why the wrapper is installed into C:\TOMBRAID directory - you may play with it and it will affect Tomb Raider only.

Of course, it can vary. Though I've run all those I listed with the same ones (Windows & DOS). So sharing the experience...

NightWish, if you can't confirm your settings with the mouse (I've seen that issue ;) ), you'd better press Tab several times to put the higlighting frame to OK button then press Space not Enter ;)
Of course, you should do it in DOS platform as on the screenie...

1. I can't see TR is installed properly only TR:UB

Tomb Raider 1 Gold - Unfinished Business Installed
TOMBUB.EXE File Size = 867563 bytes - Glide Emulator version installed

2. what drive do you put you TR CD in? (must put in D: )

3. Unplug USB joystick from your PC and try to run TR again.

4. Please explain in details what is wrong with DgVoodoo for you:
You start it. Select DOS platform (it selects or no?). Select General tab (it selects or no?). Check the option (...)? Press OK (if you can do it with the mouse or Tab then Space), etc.

5. BTW, try disabling Fraps before making changes in DgVoodoo settings ;)

1.So how can install it properly?
2. I don't undersand what to do. sorry... My problem with voodoo is that the settings don't save
3. Still doesnt work. Should the vodo files be in C:\system?

I put it in drive D and I don't have a joystick - I have a gamepad is it a problem too?

Edit: my gamepad is unpludgged now I have plgged a scanner and a graphic tablet lol should I turn them off?

1.So did you use Tomb Raider Advanced Installer? If yes then no probs with that.

4. You have DgVoodoo installed in c:\tombraid folder, let's leave it there. You start DgVoodooSetup.exe from there, select DOS platform, make settings and press OK. What happens next? Tell me definitely...

3. And try to run TR while your USB Joystick is unplugged.

I have to smile when I read all this hassle everyone has installing TR1..no disrespect intended.
I know the tech guys here at TRF are obliged to advocate the use of DGVoodoo and the advanced installer,'cos Tombraiderhub is part of TRF,but might I again recommend the use of Glidos..ok it'll cost you a few bucks to unlock it,but you can use a preconfigured TOMBRAID archive to install the game,available from the Glidos site,and have TR running within minutes..the latest version of Glidos will also allow the use of texturepacks to enhance the appearance of TR..

I used an installer cause the install menu of the game doesnt play. About problems - not really.
4. After that the menu closes and then I either try to play TR and It stays black even if I press Esc (in case the FMVs r making problems) either check if the settings r the same but they r always changed back to wondows not dos
4. Nope. Doesnt work :(

Vectra, I know glidos is easyer - Iplayed with the demo version of it - but I'm not paying :p

You must not :hug:
I mean if you run DgVoodoo after pressing OK and saving the settings you will see Windows platform first, but if you choose DOS then you see all the settings are OK ;)

I can suggest only one:
1. Uninstall TR, VDMSound, DgVoodoo & reboot.
2. Install VDMSound & reboot.
3. Read http://www.tombraiderhub.com/faq/tr1.html very carefully.
4. Install TR (put the CD in drive D: ) using TRAI (DGVoodoo v 1.31 is included in TRAI) and check options as it is recommended in FAQ.
5. Run TR via the icon on desktop (tomb.vlp)

Then we'll see if still any probs...

I already did that twice but ok. I will try again :) Just two questions:reboot means restart right?
And because I can find nowhere an uninstall button for TR1 (since the menu doesnt run ) is it ok if I just delete all of the files?

Edit: I did it but now the game cruches before it has started again... So I will Do the VDM sound settings once i've found them but look at what I found in TRhub
» I start Tomb Raider, but what I get a is a black screen.
Start the game within Glidos. Then press ESC and after few seconds press ESC again to skip introduction movies. After few moments you will be in the game main screen.

^^ Thats myp roblem. So I can play it only with Glidos? :(

OK. Let's continue here about DgVoodoo. As i posted in the other thread:

That version is not compatible with VDMSound 2.10.

Please for your own sake, stop hassling with extremely outdated software.
TR1 in DgVoodoo should run normally on most PC's. Especially when they are modern. Just keep trying to follow the instructions exactly.

Delete TOMBRAID
Uninstall old version of VDMSound.
Reboot the PC. Delete the old VDMSound folder in Program Files
Download and install VDMSound 2.10. Make sure you have all option ticked ON!
http://www.jozefdekkers.nl/Trforum/vdmsound-install-all.jpg
Reboot the PC.
Run The Advanced Installer. Select TR Original. Yes to DgVoodoo. Yes to let Installer configure VDMSound. Be careful: if you have a ATI card or an nVidia card make proper selections. Yes to place shortcut(s) on desktop.

26-12-06, 20:14
I think I've found the problem here - this is from your previous diagnose report NightWish:

---------------
Display Devices
---------------
Card name: NVIDIA GeForce 7900 GS
Manufacturer: NVIDIA
Chip type: GeForce 7900 GS
---------------

I believe the problem here is the nVidia 7900. I have one of these too and dgVoodoo doesn't work with mine either. Theres a thread about this problem here already - it doesn't seem to work with 79xx graphics cards.

I'm pretty sure I read on another forum that DeGe said that he's given up development on dgVooDoo so it doesn't seem like there'll be any kind of solution anytime soon. :(

Glidos ought to work ok though, it does for me, or at least the latest one does, the earlier ones don't. Umm to get rid of the spinning logo right from the start uninstall everything, reboot and then reinstall again should get it working properly again (but it'll still appear on level 4 and in the Lara's Mansion level.)

Oh yes i remember that, thanks for posting, Chug. :tmb: I just didn't see Nightwish's report here.

I manage to get the game to run, yes, that is when I select "No soundcard" and I don't do any of the settings. When that's done, the game installs, but it doesn't automatically create a desktop shortcut to it. I have to go into "My Computer" and go to the "TOMBRAID" file. It hasn't got an Icon.

So, I load it up and the FMV works fine, except no sound. There is a Passport screen, and I start a new game and it works like normal, except there is no sound, and the graphics are very poor. I'll try and get a screenshot. Why do you select "No soundcard" ??? :confused: The result is that you have no sound, of course. :)

What you should do at that point, is manually select soundblaster.

Ikas90
07-01-07, 12:37
But I manually select that, and I try all different sorts of combinations of IRQ and DMA settings. It freezes every time I press "Test".

Maybe I need something in my TOMBRAID file?

Joseph
07-01-07, 13:35
Hi Ikas. :) Do not try all sorts of IRQ and DMA settings.
You could run Setup.exe seperately, but leave that for now.

First, please delete TOMBRAID and start all over.

You have Windows 98, but DgVoodoo runs on that OS too. You can download and install The Advanced Installer, it includes DgVoodoo. (Download (http://www.tombraiderchronicles.com/windowsxp2.html)- Freeware)

Joseph
07-01-07, 13:42
Now Extract the downloaded Advanced Installer zip file into a folder you created on desktop.

Have the TR1 CD in your first player (if you have more than 1 in your PC, you must use the one with the lowest drive letter).

Start Advanced Installer.
Select TR Original.
Select Yes i would like to use DgVoodoo.
Select Yes let Installer configure soundcard.
Yes to shortcut on Desktop.
You have no ATI card, so leave that unticked.

Finish.

It could be, that the icon on desktop looks weird. Then don't use it.

Open TOMBRAID.
Doubleclick TOMB.exe.
Does the game run? :)

Yes it will on every XP system. The Setup program was designed for DOS.

Follow Jo's advice.

Most of the times, "Test" does not freeze on my PC's with a Soundblaster Live! (Windows ME/XP), Audigy 2 (W XP), Audigy2 ZS (W XP), X-Fi soundcard (W XP).... i usually get the "Right. Let's go adventuring!" voice....

Thank you, Joseph :tmb: But how would I transfer this onto my PC, as I use a Laptop for the internet, and the internet cables won't reach the PC in my room. And it won't take Memory sticks. Could it travel on a floppy disk?

But Ikas, your soundchip is ancient. And you have no drivers installed:

So, does that mean I have to install a driver? Or can I still get it to work without one?

If you have floppy drive on both computers you can put Advanced Installer on a floppy since it's only 1MB in size.

So, does that mean I have to install a driver? Or can I still get it to work without one?

It would be much better if you had the latest drivers installed.

Thanks, LI :tmb: Where can I install a driver?

Now Extract the downloaded Advanced Installer zip file into a folder you created on desktop.

Done... I created a folder and put them in there.

Have the TR1 CD in your first player (if you have more than 1 in your PC, you must use the one with the lowest drive letter).

Yep, done... then it comes up with the standard install screen. I minimize it, and leave it alone. I open the Advanced Installer.

Start Advanced Installer.
Select TR Original.

Are you sure? I forgot to mention that I have the Unfinished Business pack, so I've got two disks. I'm using Disc 1 to try and install it. Does that mean I still have to click on Original?

Select Yes i would like to use DgVoodoo.
Select Yes let Installer configure soundcard.

It has an option for IRQ 5 or 7... I tried 5.

Should I run autoexec.bat again?

Yes to shortcut on Desktop.

Yep, done. But It created a funny looking icon.

You have no ATI card, so leave that unticked.

Done that, but should I tick the one that asks me to run DgVoodoo setup?

It could be, that the icon on desktop looks weird. Then don't use it.
Open TOMBRAID.
Doubleclick TOMB.exe.
Does the game run? :)

No, the game doesn't run at all. Maybe I need to do it in the standard installer too?

From ESS (http://www.esstech.com/techsupp/drivers.shtm):
Note: Windows installation CD has built-in support for this audio device. ESS did not and will not release separate ISA audio WDM driver for this device. Windows Me users may try VXD audio driver for Windows 95/98/98SE. See FAQ (http://www.esstech.com/techsupp/faq.shtm#audio) for installation information.

Joseph
08-01-07, 00:45
Yep, done... then it comes up with the standard install screen. I minimize it, and leave it alone. I open the Advanced Installer.
No, you must EXIT the autorun of the game, before you use the Advanced Installer.

Are you sure? I forgot to mention that I have the Unfinished Business pack, so I've got two disks. I'm using Disc 1 to try and install it. Does that mean I still have to click on Original?
Yes. You must select TR Original. The CD2 is useless in Advanced Installer and DgVoodoo. For Unfinished Business, install the downloaded version, as is clearly explained in the Advanced Installer itself before your eyes! ;)

It has an option for IRQ 5 or 7... I tried 5.
Fine. First try 5 then Next time, try 7.
Should I run autoexec.bat again?
Not at all.

LEAVE this for now. First we need to get your sound working. Is sound working on other games / media?

Tomb Raider Original means that the Installer will install TR1.

It has an option for IRQ 5 or 7... I tried 5.

As Joseph already said IRQ5 is just fine although IRQ7 is the recommended since it works on most computers. IRQ5 is used in case that IRQ7 setting doesn't work correctly.

First we need to get your sound working.

Yes, you must do that first.

You installed TR1 by the Advanced Installer. That way, you will now have a tomb.exe that only runs on the Glide wrapper DgVoodoo.
If you want to run TR1 normally, you should use the Tomb.exe that would normally be installed from the CD.

General FAQ
Q: How can I find out who manufactured my modem or sound card?
A: If you do not know the product manufacturer, you can look on the product for the FCC ID number and use it to search the online FCC Equipment Authorization Database site at http://www.fcc.gov/oet/fccid/ (http://www.fcc.gov/oet/fccid/).

ESS does not manufacture and retail and audio and modem card. You will have to rely on “Identify procedure” above if you are unable to determine which ESS device you have, before you locate correct driver from our Driver page, or report your issue by Contact Tech Support button above.


Q: I bought a computer that has a modem or sound card built into the motherboard. How can I disable the modem or sound card and install a different modem or sound card?

A: Refer to the user manual that came with your computer. The detailed instructions on how to disable the modem or sound card should be there. Also recommended is a call to the technical support personnel wherever you purchased the computer for instructions on disabling the modem or sound card on the motherboard or you may check your system setup utility in BIOS for the options to disable the onboard audio or modem card.


Q: How do I download the driver to my system?
A: You can download the driver from the Internet to anywhere on your C:\ drive (the C:\TEMP directory is best) or your system's A:\ drive. You then need the WinZip application to unzip the driver. The trial version of WinZip file compression utility can be downloaded from WinZip's website at http://www.winzip.com/ (http://www.winzip.com/).
Back to Top (http://www.esstech.com/techsupp/faq.shtm#top)
FAQ for audio issues
Q: Does ESS Technology make sound cards?
A: ESS Technology is a semiconductor company. Therefore, ESS Technology manufactures the chip that makes the existence of sound cards possible.
Q: How can I obtain the generic ESS Technology audio driver?
A: It is best that you utilize a specific driver for your sound card. Specific drivers can be obtained from the manufacturer or wherever you purchased the product. You may download generic drivers from this website and install them at your own risk. ESS Technology is not responsible for the suitability of any of our generic drivers for your particular configuration. If you decide to use our generic drivers, please identify the exact ESS chips (see instructions (http://www.esstech.com/techsupp/faq-identify.shtm#audiodevice)) and Windows OS before you download. You can double click on driver link, or use right mouse click, Save As, to download drivers from our Tech Support web site.
Q: How do I install the audio driver I download from ESS website?
A: After unzipping the driver package to a location in your hard disk, try to find the Install Shield bundled with it (Setup.exe or ESSetup.exe). Execute Setup and follow the instruction to install the driver.
Or you can open Device Manager, which is from System icon in Control Panel. Find the audio or modem device you would like to install/upgrade, double click on it or open its Properties, click on "Update Driver…" button and direct the location prompt to the drive/directory where you stored the unzipped driver package. Plug and Play function of Windows will do the rest. If you never load any device driver for the audio device in your system, it may appears as an unknown device or device with exclamation mark in Device Manager. You can still use Reinstall driver or Update driver in its Properties page and follow above steps to install your driver.

Q: How can I tell if my sound card is operating in half-duplex mode or full-duplex mode?
A: Testing to see if the sound card is operating in either full-duplex mode or half-duplex mode is easy. Play any WAV or MIDI file while trying to record at the same time. If the recording and playback events occur simultaneously, the sound card is operating in full-duplex mode. All ESS Technology sound cards, except ES488, ES688, ES1488, ES1688 & ES1788 designed before 1995 for the ISA bus, operate in full-duplex mode. For more information, please contact the vendor from whom you purchased your sound card.
Q: Is my sound card fully SoundBlaster-compatible?
A: Yes. All sound cards using ESS Technology audio chips support SoundBlaster compatible applications.
Q: Do you have a Windows 2000 driver for my ISA sound card?
A: Windows 2000 drivers can be obtained from the Windows 2000 CD that came with your system or with your Windows 2000 upgrade.
Q: Does my sound card support pure DOS mode?
A: Not all ESS Technology sound cards support pure DOS mode. Pure DOS is called up when you boot your system to DOS 6.22 or Windows DOS 4.0 mode directly, instead of to the Windows desktop. For PCI sound cards, DOS mode is supported by their Windows 95/98 drivers in order to properly configure PCI resources in C:\CONFIG.SYS and C:\AUTOEXEC.BAT, and the DOS emulation is limited to IRQ5.
Q: Does the ESS Technology sound card support DOS box mode?
A: Yes. All ESS Technology sound cards support DOS box mode. In Windows, you launch the DOS box by double-clicking on the DOS icon. However, in Windows NT4/2000/XP, DOS-based programs and games are unable to access I/O port and resources directly in its (DOS) Command Prompt as in Windows 95/98/98SE/Me, thus audio function may not work in the Command Prompt window.
Q: I have problems with my Sidewinder Force Feedback Pro joystick. It does not work with my sound card. How can I fix this problem?
A: Updating the Microsoft Sidewinder software usually works. Software upgrades can be obtained from Microsoft's website at: http://www.microsoft.com (http://www.microsoft.com/). If joystick recognition is not stable due to our early game port interface design, please refer to the USB connection option of your joystick device.
Q: Does ESS audio devices support Linux OS?
A: ESS only has limited support for Linux driver, partly because Linux driver needs to be built differently based on its kernel version. For resource reason we can only work with OEM customers to provide Linux support based on requested build version. Please check with your hardware vendor for Linux support policy. For most ESS audio devices, e.g., ISA audio chips ES18xx and PCI audio chips ES19xx, we believe the Linux kernel has limited embedded driver support already. But ESS is not responsible for the (free) driver code base existing in the Linux world.

Must be a problem with your ISP then....
"See FAQ (http://www.esstech.com/techsupp/faq.shtm#audio) for installation information." -link loads immediately for me.
And 688_VXD1087 (ftp://ftp.esstech.com/pub/audio/isa/es688/win95/688_v1087.zip) gives me the download menu within a second.

:confused:


Just download from their page:

Am i sure??? Of course i'm sure. Else i wouldn't give it to you would i. Look here is the page:
http://www.esstech.com/techsupp/drivers.shtm

scroll down to the first table about ESS ISA Audio chip, see the second row: ES688 drivers for Windows 95/98/98SE. ;)

Oh, I just got it.

Now what do I do? It says "Settings". Do I just ignore it and extract all the files to the desktop?

Joseph

Ikas, talk clear with me please!

I just downloaded the zip file. Extract all to a folder you created on desktop. Then doubleclick Setup.exe.

Have you read their FAQ, Ikas?


Q: How do I install the audio driver I download from ESS website?

A: After unzipping the driver package to a location in your hard disk, try to find the Install Shield bundled with it (Setup.exe or ESSetup.exe). Execute Setup and follow the instruction to install the driver.

Or you can open Device Manager, which is from System icon in Control Panel. Find the audio or modem device you would like to install/upgrade, double click on it or open its Properties, click on "Update Driver…" button and direct the location prompt to the drive/directory where you stored the unzipped driver package.
Plug and Play function of Windows will do the rest.
If you never load any device driver for the audio device in your system, it may appears as an unknown device or device with exclamation mark in Device Manager.
You can still use Reinstall driver or Update driver in its Properties page and follow above steps to install your driver.


To see Setup.exe, i suppose you followed this step:
Control Panel > Folder Options > View > UNTICK "hide extensions for known filetypes", click OK.

From now on, you will see it is actually Tomb.exe.

As soon as it finished downloading, the files came up. Then there's a Settings window infront of it, as shown in the screenshot. Where do I go from there?

EDIT: Okay, I'll try the FAQ again. Sorry for the disturbance.

As soon as it finished downloading, the files came up. That is because you have clicked on "Run" in stead of "Save".

The file is now located in your Temp folder.
Would you have clicked on "Save" , then you would have been asked to which folder, and you could have chosen one.


Anyway, what you have done works as well.

Then there's a Settings window infront of it, as shown in the screenshot. Where do I go from there?
Wait. What your picture shows, is the installation of WinRAR.

I told you the steps to do... it seems you're not following them... :(

Right. In the Settings menu, just click OK, and WinRAR will be installed.
It's a great program, i prefer it over WinZip! :tmb:

Ikas90
08-01-07, 09:38
Yep... done :tmb: I saved it to a folder. Now it needs to be extracted.

So what do I do? Do I extract them now, and then put them on floppy disk to transfer it onto my other computer?

Sorry, but I couldn't understand the FAQ too well, that's why I asked you ;)

Joseph

WinRAR is now installed right?

Right-click on the downloaded zip file.
Select Extract to archive...
Click OK.
WinRAR will create a folder next to the zipfile.
Open that folder.
Doubleclick SETUP.exe
It starts installing.
Confirm the defaults by OK.

Right-click on the downloaded zip file.

The one in the folder where I saved it to?

Select Extract to archive...

I can't find "Extract to archive". It only has the options for "Extract files...", "Extract Here" and "Extract to 688_v1087\".

Joseph
08-01-07, 10:27
The one in the folder where I saved it to?
YEs. The downloaded zip file.
"Extract to 688_v1087\". <<<-- that is the simplest: means that WinRAR will automatically create a new folder and give it that name.

Thank you ;)

Now, I've run the setup and installation. It asked me to restart the computer.

This is what happens after I restart...

"Windows will search for new drivers in its driver database on your hard drive, and in any of the following selected locations. Click Next to start the search"

I specified the location (C:\WINDOWS\Desktop\es688+ES968). I clicked next, and it says...

"Windows was unable to locate a driver for this device.

If you do not want to install a driver now, click Next

To search again, click Back"

What do I do? Do I just press Next?

You have to specify the folder that you extracted the files from the zip file to.

Isn't there (in the folder with extracted driver files) an exe file?

Saki, there is a Setup.exe

http://img63.imageshack.us/img63/3863/111qb7.th.jpg (http://img63.imageshack.us/my.php?image=111qb7.jpg)

in your unpacked files - run it instead of running device installation...

Morning Lord Icon :wve:

There is no .exe file... They are all called Setup. I just clicked on the one with the computer as an Icon.

And it says that I need to insert the Windows 98 disc into the CD-ROM :confused:

Morning EscondeR :wve: It's actually evening for me :)

Ikas - Did you try pointing the driver wizard to the folder with the extracted files?

Also, do you have your Windows set to show the file extensions? This way you would be able to see which one of the setup files is exe and just double click on it.

EscondeR says that there is a setup.exe file there. That would be the one to double click on.

Saki, for dealing not with explorer's settings, utility and comfort use Total Commander (http://www.ghisler.com/download.htm) to see file types by default ;)

Morning EscondeR :wve: It's actually evening for me :)

My mistake ;)

Ikas, i told you. But you did not pay attention to this post: Control Panel > Folder Options > View > UNTICK "hide extensions for known filetypes", click OK.

From now on, you will see it is actually Tomb.exe.
You will see all extensions now. Also the Setup.exe.

Yes, I know all of that, but now I can't install the sound driver because it says I need to insert a disc.

Joseph

You know that? But you said this:There is no .exe file... They are all called Setup. I just clicked on the one with the computer as an Icon.

So, enable the extensions be displayed, Ikas.

It can ask for the CD when you launch the wrong file...
