Playing the classics on a modern PC?
 
I've recently got a new PC and have started using windows 10 for the first time, whats the best way to play the original game on a modern system. If possible i'd like to play with the OST from the PS1 and a controller.

Thanks

You can buy the games on Steam (when they're in sale they're sold at less than $1).

There are multiple patches for the classic games for modern systems. For TR1, I suggest you to download TombATI. It will make the game work without DosBox and you will be able to put the official HD Textures or custom textures and you'll be able to apply mods like sound effects, HQ FMVs and the gorgeus Xevengar's model mods.

For TR2 and all the other classics, the only thing you need to download is Stella's widescreen patch which enables widescreen in the game and will make the game run in full screen (the games are not optimized for Windows 10 and if you don't download the patch you'll be forced to play the games in windowed mode).

About Angel of Darkness...I don't know if you want to play it, but if you want to and you want a "complete" experience, you'll have to download dozens of mods and it will take almost 2 hours to completely optimize Angel of Darkness for the best way possible :vlol:

By the way, you can always play the games via emulator (PS1 emulator for the first 5 games, PS2 emulator for Angel of Darkness and the LAU trilogy).

2 hours? I mean there's a good few things but they're mostly small visual fixes you don't really need.

Yeah, but when I said "complete experience" I totally mean COMPLETE :vlol:

Could you point at a complete tutorial, if it exists, to achieve the "complete experience"? ;)

I suggest TOMBATI for TR1, Peixotos Patches for the others, and maybe some texture and fullscreen mods through Peixoto.

TombATI for TR1 is an absolute must. Playing the game with DosBox on modern system is awful.

Tho, Peixoto's tool is only useful if you want HD Textures on TR2, because TR3-4-5 don't have HD textures and mods can be easily installed with the game's files.

Yes, very true, and one thing I have to say, Peixoto does Great on the fullscreen.
