Selected Test Results

What works

Install, gameplay, audio, some cutscene videos

What does not

Installer crashes, but does install the game properly.

Game often crashes on start.

Keyboard focus is sometimes lost and becomes unrecoverable. Not sure of exact conditions, but has something to do with the game/wine getting confused when it loses focus.


Seems to miss many key events, often leaving Lara jumping up and down or turning around until they are pressed again. This makes it barely playable.


At least one cutscene did not play (out of 3 tested).

Workarounds

Required using a desktop (820x620) slightly greater than the display
size the game (800x600) was set for, otherwise it changes the primary monitor resolution and shows black screen (even when set to run in windowed mode). Game sounds can be heard during this, so it's running, but unusable. (The game resolution can be reset with `wine Tomb2.exe setup`)

What was not tested

All levels above Venice

Hardware tested

Graphics:

  • GPU: Nvidia
  • Driver: proprietary

Additional Comments

Does not work on multi-monitor setup properly (only displays on primary, without use_desktop workaround)

Since the keys can not be reconfigured and heavily use Alt, Ctl and Shift, check your window manager settings for conflicts!

Music

After playing a bit more, I would like to note that the music does not work AT ALL. I remember the original game played CDDA tracks from the multi-format CD, the GOG version has extracted the tracks into a directory, but the links to the tracks are all wrong.
For example, you get the audio for some cutscene dialog for a level far in the future when there's supposed to be a ominous bit of music playing.
I've searched the GOG forums, and others are complaining of similar (not exactly the same) problems, so I'm not sure if this is entirely wine related.
