Question Relentless Problem

Hey all, I own a legitimate copy of Relentless (LBA 1) and I am having a problem. I am running the game under Windows XP (after a bit of trouble) and I am using LBAWIN and VDMSound and the problem I am having is that:

Whenever I use the magic ball to retrieve a key, the game freezes. Anybody had a similar problem? Any help would be appreciated. I can't work around the problem because I am trying to get back to the southern hemisphere and you have to kill the guard with the key in discreet mode and use the ball to retrieve the key over the fence....

We don't give support for LbaWin yet as it's only in the beta phase. Please report it on the bug report board if you think this is a bug.

It's useless to use VDMSound with LbaWin however since LbaWin finds the audio device automatically (DirectX).


Maybe (but I doubt it) there's a corrupt file in your LBA dir, like the HQR with sound effects in it (samples.hqr I think). Maybe it would help if you'd re-copy this from the cd, or try a whole new re-install.

actually there is a way around doing that, you either climb up on the snow wall on the northwest side of the zone, or you get there through the hole a rabbibuny dug for you, there instead of jumping down you kill a guy with a machine gun and you jump down from there, without having to pass the fence, then you can kill that guy with that key and take his key without using the ball

hope this helps

I wonder if you can beat LBA without using the ball...hmz...kinda like completing the 2nd quest of the LoZ, where you must do so without the sword...
