CD version for Windows PC
This is a later version that includes DirectX support (CrocD3D.EXE) and a demo of Croc 2.
All i've seen so far:
- Configuring keys
- Configuring display
- Saving and loading game progress
- Sound effects
What does not
- Remembering control config
- Some music (Trumpet when Croc hits the gong for example)
See comment for description of install.
What was not tested
Long term play
I had a graphics problem (either black screen, or weird graphics if tweaking the D3D as described in previous options). I checked out http://www.play-old-pc-games.com/2013/01/31/croc-legend-of-the-gobbos/ and downloaded the unofficial patch, then chose "Glide - Voodoo compatible" in the Crocrun.exe. Then I added special config for croc.exe in winecfg, "d3d9" as "integrated" in the libraries (NOT native, it does not work). Launch in any desired resolution, and voilÃ , it works. Not sure if all the previous tweaking helped (dgVoodoo, Zeckensack's glider or nGlide: http://www.zeus-software.com/downloads/nglide -last tested, did not work by itself) had any influence on the success of the patch upgrade. If the patch alone does not work, maybe you could try the last one (nGlide), and THEN the patch upgrade?

A two-byte patch seems to fix the problem with keyboard control options not being saved.
Use a hex editor like okteta to open croc.exe and change two bytes at offset 0x1B715 from 0x04,0x50 to 0x00,0x90.
