Tomb Raider I & Tomb Raider II Sold Out

Sound FAQ

Written and produced by Simulation


Tomb Raider I and II - Music will not play on Sold Out version.

The Sold Out version of Tomb Raider sometimes does not contain valid audio tracks and the game loses a lot of its atmosphere as a result. However, this situation can be rectified if your PC has a CD-RW drive.

Download the audio tracks from Tomb Raider Chronicles and burn your own replacement CD-ROM.

How to check the Tomb Raider CD:
TR1 and TR2 CD-ROMs are both mixed-mode Data + Audio CD format. Place your CD into the drive and exit any Autorun menu. Now start Microsoft Media Player or Real Player and select the CD-ROM drive. You should see and be able tp play 9 audio tracks for TR1 and 60 tracks for TR2. You know you have a problem if either you cannot see the tracks or the tracks are silent (Visulisation doesn't move during play).
How to create a replacement CD-ROM:
There are two methods that can be used.
Create a single replacement CD-ROM
Create a Audio CD
Create a single replacement CD-ROM (requires the ability to burn a mixed-mode session)
