Thanks this seems to have done the trick. It crashed at first but running the game again got it going. Oddly enough though texture swapping seems to turn off whenever I start a new game in the expansion (It was working on the main menu)
What do you mean with that? Did you try to replace textures and it didn't work ? Texture packs made for TR 2 don't work with golden mask, those are different textures
Ah well that would explain it. I figured they would be using the same textures!
I have another question about another Tomb Raider problem I have been having for quite a long time if it's not too much trouble as well. In the classic Tomb Raider games, they all seem to stutter and drop frames occasionally if you run them on Windows 7 or later, and i've tried nearly everything, including full hardware changes, dgvoodoo and your patch itself. In the myriad of things I tried the only thing that worked was playing on Windows XP, which got rid of the problem entirely, and using Nvidia Profile Inspector to set the Frame Limit to 30.5, which reduced the long periods of slowdown but still left the microstuttering. I'm tempted to try a virtual machine even or install XP on a partition just to get things to work, but that would bring its own new host of problems.
Thanks for your help and sorry if this is the wrong place to put this!
