Just got a new PC with XP home.

TRLE takes a very long time to load
Has anyone else had this problem - and solved it.

There's no TRLE tr4exe patch on TRChronicles and I updated my system from the microsoft site. Even installed as a win95 compatible - no luck

:mad:


can anyone help?

Try updating your video card drivers, and directX drivers; Windows XP should run the level editor with no problem.

Make sure you are running it in 16bit colour

thanks,

I downloaded new XP patches but nothing worked - takes about 20 seconds to load a game, and almost as long to get out again.

btw - re 16-bit: I'm talking about levels not the Room Editor which works fine. In fact the 2.4ghz P4 builds a tom in about 5 seconds - I used to be able to make a cup of tea while it did that!

I'll take a look at the video drivers and directX but I don't think the prob is there.

Usually it's a problem about audio drivers, try disabling sound card in the graphic setup menu of the game ;)

That made a big difference - the load is much much faster.

Game is silent, of course, so this is not a solution.
Not sure what to do about this - the sound card is Avance AC97 Audio.
