Tomb Raider 4 compatibility/patch

Post by Jorge22 » 30 Jul 2011 15:09

Alright, Win 7 gives you a hard time if you want to replay classic TR games except for Chronicles. 2 and 3 don't work. 4 seems to work in the 98/ME compatibility mode - only, Lara starts jumping backwards and never stops, plus one can only finish using alt + F4, really weird. Any current Win7 solutions or are these games gone for good?

nothing wrong here with mywin7 ultimate 64
but i figured out that turning off the glass effect helps
to do so right click on your desktop
click personal options
then use a windows basic theme

I tried that, thanks. In later versions the program doesn't respond. In earlier versions, If I make make Lara turn she will turn endlessly and the dsame for every movement like going ahead or moving backwards. I was hoping that would solve it...

Jorge - try the multipatch from here: http://www.tombraiderchronicles.com/windows7/patch.html. I don't have Windows 7 myself, but as far as I know, this patch solves most of the issues in running the Classic TRs. :)

Thanks a bunch. I'm sure that'll be most helpful! :2thumbsup:

EDIT: Unfortunately, even though it's publicized as fit from 2 to 5, the program tells you it's only available for 4 and 5. But that's ok, at least for 4 (5 works fine, anyway). And I do trust these patches. :)
