hello, :help:
as title suggests i am trying to load tomb raider 4 on a dell laptop 8200 1.7ghz pentium 4 with geforce2 xp pro. something is amiss as it gets to the end and wants to send an error report.
i know the game is designed for windows 95/98 with direct x 6.1. could this be an issue? :whistling:
thank you in anticipation.
ian
if this is on twice sorry. :blink:

mike,
right, i assume that it is possible to download 6.1.
and excuse me for being dense, but, will this in any way affect my exixting direct x which i think is 10 or similar.
i have a little computer knowledge which for me is a dangerous thing. if it is possible to tangle it all up i will.

Direct x is backwards compatible, but tomb raider is not compatible with some of the inherent security of windows xp. There is no reason to install direct 6 as it is already "in there"

I found this, which supposedly indicates how to install TR
