oops late reply, sorry
hadn't noticed your add yet

this might be hopefully addressed editing the dosbox*.conf files you'll find in the \tombraider folders
there's a cycles= entry there (you may want to browse the dosbox readme for this:
CPU Cycles (speed up/slow down).....You can force the slow or fast behavior by setting a fixed amount of cycles in the DOSBox's configuration file etc.)

I modified the default there with a view to optimizing it of course, but you can try it out yourself as it's kind of a typical per machine setting
anywhere in the range 10,000 to 200,000+ can be reasonably set, but as you crank it up you'll soon come to notice that the higher [not always] the better

Thank you, changed to max, still somewhat sluggish, but not anywhere near what it was.

Going to try other numbers and see what happens.

Anyone know the reason for the removal of the double CD check? As in no physical TR1 disc needs to be in the drive for the game to run. How does this work?

Very minor maintenance work and v1.7.7.1 becomes 1.7.7.2
(see updated link in original post on page 1)

just to prevent some recurring false positive flags raised by Windows Defender (but not eg by Avast nor Malwarebytes tools) I reviewed and changed as seemed fit the procedures involved in some batch conversions taking place long before runtime.
