Exclamation Sound driver issues

Thanks Troye for your great work. I noticed I am having a sound issue in both Tomb3Main and Tomb5Main. The setup window doesn't list the sound devices correctly. If I disable sound, then both games work. These are the screenshots of the setup window

This is the one with default tomb3.exe:

It's probably an issue with the levels themselves, but I'm probably just some raving lunatic spewing nonsense without knowing anything.
Where exactly?

@Woops
At the very start of both those levels. Trying to explain what I'm talking about is driving me nuts, so here's a video:



At the very start of the level she has a dark, unlit look. As she runs forward triggering the vultures, the lighting just pops up on her. Going back to the starting point of the level doesn't return her to that darkened state which makes me think there might be something going on here. It's easier to notice in Nevada Desert than Coastal Village since she starts out underwater there.

Is the skin tone shift you're talking about?

Not a big deal, if you ask me. I wouldn't have even noticed it, if it weren't for you.

I agree. I never thought too much about it until the question popped up in my head: "why does everywhere else in the game have smooth lighting transitions between 2 squares with drastically different lights (like the entrance to the boulder cave in Jungle) yet this one area has it just pop up so oddly".

Not sure if you're already aware of this but I noticed that when I started using the latest version of tomb3 I started getting this black window on my second monitor. I believe this might be related to the windowed support feature, but I'm not sure. I have to minimize the game and then click on the game again to make it disappear. Also, I can see my mouse in certain areas, over the game's image, if I just leave the black window on.

Is there any way of making DirectInput to XInput wrappers (XInput Plus or Xidi) work on tomb3 or tomb4?
