try all the options
you probably need to restart everytime you change an option
in the settings
and next time please don't ask for help on a technical issue in the stuck forum
but go direct to this forum you are in now
or chat about a level forum

Come on, Suz! It must works!
Do you know how to enter the setup?
Well, in the setup, check out the "Output settings" combo box, and select "Microsoft Direct3D Hardware acceleration..."
Also check out the "Render Options" section, the Hardware Acceleration option must be selected.

Suzanne,

(edited) --- Suzanne, while I posted, you also posted that you got it to work. Great news! Glad it works.

Thus, I deleted the original message. Enjoy raiding!

Hello, :D
I have the same problem, I upgraded to win 10 about 2 years ago and since I haven't been able to play any levels plus got busy with life and thus I returned to TRLE for that wonderful advent calendar which I've been eagerly waiting for.
I'm afraid I lost touch with how custom levels can be 'customized' so I need your help getting the levels to work again.
When I open A Celtic Christmas Memory I get a tiny window , I can hear the sound but I can't enlarge it for some reason!

look at teone's post above
you need to have the same screen resolution as your pc/laptop
cos it sounds like you have a very low resolution now

this is how you can create a setup

Unzip the files, right click the exe, select "Create shortcut". Right click the shortcut, go to Properties, in the Target field, add "-setup" to the end of the path, with the quotation marks, and add a space inbetween as well, apply changes.

An example of what it should look like:
D:\Example\TombRaider\tomb3.exe "-setup"
