Getting old software/games running on older hardware.

Tomb Raider, Windows 98... getting the PS1 music?

Postby EdmondDantes » 2018-10-12 @ 05:12

Okay, so...

I know there's a special patch/installer/something that will add the PS1 music to the PC version of Tomb Raider.

However, this patch seems like its meant to be used on modern OSes. I want to run the game in Windows 98SE on a comp with a Voodoo 3 graphics card (yes its a DOS game, but running it from Windows prevents certain lock-ups when using the 3D acceleration).

So is there a way to get the PS1 music on a Win98 machine or am I SOL?

Check out this site: http://www.glidos.net/

It helped me get TR1 running on my XP rig w/o dosbox. A lot of different stuff there that may be of use for Win98 also.

I don't remember where I found it, but I believe I do have a version of tomb.exe for Glide including the audio patch. Works with nGlide, I don't know about real Voodoo 3 but "should" work.

I know about GliDOS, but the page itself indicates you need a "modern" computer and that a Glide wrapper is built-in, which I know from experience will screw things up (I can't play the GOG versin of the FPS Sin because it forces the use of a Glide wrapper).

Unfortunately I couldn't find a link on that site to contact the author directly and question him, which would be the easiest way to figure this out.

Get a CD drive with audio control buttons on the front panel and use it to play the audio tracks from the PS1 disc in-game. Might sound stupid, but that's really the easiest way. You may want to burn your own audio disc, however, as there are also talkie tracks.

GliDOS is afaik the patch that you are talking about and it's the only one.

Paul is a member of this forum, perhaps open a thread on the Glidos sub-forum, or send him a P.M?
