What works

Running the game in safe mode (see workarounds).

Completing the first few levels.

Playing the Croft Manor level.

What does not

Could not get the game to launch using the DOSBox wrapper provided by the GOG installer.

Could not launch the game in normal mode, had to use safe mode.


Installing the game and launching it in safe mode:

- Create a 32-bit Wine prefix if you don't already have one: $ export WINEARCH=win32; export WINEPREFIX=/home/$USER/.wineprefixes/TombRaider; winecfg

- Install winetricks and gecko if queried.

- Launch the GOG installer through wine and install the game.

- Navigate to the installation directory, copy GAME.GOG to somewhere on your hard drive and change the file ending to ".iso":  $ cp ~"/.wineprefixes/TombRaider/drive_c/GOG Games/Tomb Raider 1/GAME.GOG" ~/Games/tombraider.iso

- Install DOSBox, e.g. from your distro's repository: # apt install dosbox

- Launch DOSBox (all following commands are in DOSBox): $ dosbox

- Mount "game CD": Z:> imgmount d /home/$USER/Games/tombraider.isoiso -t iso

- Mount "hard drive": Z:> mount c /home/$USER/.wineprefixes/TombRaider/drive_c

- Navigate to game directory.

- Subfolder TOMBRAID contains game executables. Execute TOMBS.EXE.

- For a convenient shortcut, create a short bash script that launches DOSBox and executes the necessary steps:


export WINEPREFIX="/home/$USER/.wineprefixes/TombRaider"

dosbox -c "imgmount d /home/$USER/Games/tombraider.iso -t iso" -c "mount c /home/$USER/.wineprefixes/TombRaider/drive_c" -c "c:" -c "cd GOGGAM~1" -c "cd TOMBRA~1" -c "cd TOMBRAID" -c "tombs" -c "exit"

export WINEPREFIX=""

- Make the script executable and put it in your $PATH.

What was not tested

Playing farther than "City of Vilcabamba".
