Croc: Legend of the Gobbos

CD version for Windows PC

This is an early version that appears to not include DirectX support (CrocD3D.EXE), nor a demo of Croc 2. DirectX is, however, bundled, but D3D hardware acceleration is not listed as an available option, when selecting a graphics card.

What works

The game is playable with nGlide; however there are some minor issues (see below)

What does not

  • Croc does not say 'weehee!' and there isn't a fanfare, when hitting the gong at the end of the level
  • Graphics are corrupted when using the Unaccelerated (software only) driver
  • Videos do not have sound
  • There is a vertical bar of corrupted graphics to the left of the intro video
  • It's quite likely there are other sounds missing too

Workarounds

  • Install both Croc and nGlide with Windows Version set to Windows 95. This is particularly important for nGlide; otherwise glide2x.dll is not installed to the correct location.
  • Run crocrun.exe
  • In Croc Driver Settings, select 3dfx Voodoo compatible (Monster, Orchid, Righteous)
  • Set Default Screen Resolution to 800 x 600
  • Set Lighting Quality to Super
  • Set Texture Quality to Filtered Textures
  • Press OK to save settings
  • In 'C:\Program Files\Fox\Croc', remove glide2x.dll (If you change Croc Driver settings in the future, you may need to delete glide2x.dll again)
  • You may want to run nGlide configurator and change Screen resolution to your native resolution and Aspect ratio to Aspect correction
  • For Up, Down, Left, Right, Tail whip and 180 turn, you will need to map these keys manually. I believe the defaults for Tail whip and 180 turn are Left Ctrl and Left Shift respectively.


    What was not tested

    • Every level apart from 1-1
    • Game controller
