    Question Tomb Raider 2 Sound Delay

    Does someone has an answer to this? I'm playing all the tomb raider games in 'chronological' way.

    In tomb raider 2, when a new sound has to play (like the 'secret sound' ) the game freezes a few seconds. In those seconds I think the game search for the sound on the cd. It's an original copy from sold out.

    This is so irritating, and if the game is going to be exciting (when a exciting music has to play) you already know there is an enemy around the corner (like I wouldn't know )

    anyone??
    Tnx

    That is indeed the cause of the problem...the game is accessing the sound FX from the (currently idle) CD.

    The price you pay for only having to do a minimum install.

    Yes, I know, I had the same problem, although I never fixed it...
    Very annoying

    The only good thing is that you can get some cool screens this way.

    Lightbulb cd-patch

    I was thinking of copying the entire cd to my harddisk, but i can't find no suitable 'no cd'-patch. Is there any available?

    Tnx
