problem trying to install Tomb Raider III multipatch

Post by Luisa » 13 Feb 2019 22:46

I am trying to install the Tomb Raider III multipatch downloaded from this website but it asks for the CD ("Audio data could not be found in the CD Drive!") which is weird because I have a poweriso drive that allows me to play the actual game without problems, so why is the patch not recognizing it?

My game is from the GOG package that comes with TR1, TR2 and TR3 (torrented, mind you). It was running ok, I had a driver installed so it didn't ask for a CD, but when I tried to install the multipatch it hasn't recognized the cd driver.

The site is this one, btw, I forgot to link in my original post.

The multipatch has a conscience. ;)

Sorry, I know that's no help. :)

Why do you want the multipatch? It is from 20 years ago and was for WIN95 and WIN98 computers with SoundBlaster AWE64 cards and/or early AMD 3D on 16 bit and early 32 bit computers (with underlying DOS in the Microsoft operating system). This patch is basically obsolete in 2019 since most people are using newer computers, and generally 64 bit computers (although some XP machines still run---most have had their internal battery clocks and motherboards die by now).

Presumably GOG would have corrected any graphics or other problems to get their version to run on WIN7, WIN8.1 and WIN10. You are not supposed to patch their version. The TR3 multipatch will only work on the original CD installation disc version from EIDOS. And that disc version will work on WIN7 and higher operating systems if you install the Tomb Raider patch from TombRaiderChronicles to run the old Tomb Raider games (except TR1 which was a 16 bit DOS game). In that case you have to install that file using admistrator privileges (sometimes) and setting the compatibility to WIN2000 (not WIN98 because modern computers are 64 bit machines without DOS).

Oh, I didn't know that. Welp, seems there's nothing wrong, then.
