Hi! I'm new here.
I got a problem with Twinsen's car, because don't move very good and moves very slowly. Could you help me resolve this problem?

The bug is known and a solution is not known. You'll find many members here who have it as well. There's a pseudo-solution with some DLL file if I remember correctly, but that never really worked. Sorry.

If you steer backwards, you might still manage to get the flower and then abandon the car.

I have the bug. Do you have the Sound-patch installed?
Cause I got this car bug after installing the Sound-patch.
I'm only able to steer when driving backwards.
I can still drive forward the normal way but then I can't steer.

The car steers the best when you don't have any patch installed.

I have the sound patch applied and the car still steers fine. This bug is mysterious, I wouldn't say anyhing we know of causes it.

Try to shoot with the car (Alt key) and press the left/right arrow key while shooting. It should rotate around its axis. I always use this on my laptop because this patch never worked on that machine for some reason. I think it's a lot easier to do than driving backwards.

I find the solution, but you need the DOSBox, and I don't know if this is legal or not. But with this you can run LBA2 without the car bug.

Yes Dosbox is legal, but personally I find it too laggy to play.

The unique problem that I present while playing with DOSBox is that the sound of the voices sounds a bit after than the usual.

But you're giving LBA games away for free download, which is illegal anyway.
Have you modified the game somehow?

Technically it's illegal for the same reasons as downloading anything not "outdated" (as you say).
It's basically stealing.
We don't support it here because that can get MBN in trouble.

no.. legally it's illegal (well duh), doesn't have anything to do with technically.
still waiting for the news that Fred acquired all rights to LBA(1/2) and made it "free".

best thing would be if LBA's content was release under a free for non-commercial use license and maybe even the source under a GPL like license (not because the engine code is that awesome but because it will kickstart OS ports of the games).

Yeah well, same thing.
I used technically rather than something like morally.
