Download the LBA2 WinXP patch by FunnyFrog. This will help you.

You might also try right-clicking on the icon and selecting properties, then go to the compatibility tab, and set it to run the program as Win 95 software. Hope it helped.

Problem with LBA2 original CD in windows

Hi. Ilove LBA 2 and the last time I played its was back in 1997 when I was 12, The game just amazeme and change my life and my way of seing games.

I Bought the original CD from Ebay for my birthday and I want to play it but:
When I tried to installed in Windows 2000 the directx game a error with directx and it doest work.
When I tried to installed in windows98 (I have 2000 and 98 in my PC) Installed the directx succesfully, but at the moment of install the game, it game me an error, after selecting a path and clicking OK, it gives me a violation area and crashes...

I cant installed in MS-DOS because it doesnt find my CD room.

Now, Its there any patch in internet to make it work with 2000 or 98 like ChaosFish said???

Its there any trick to make it work like silverado said???


Im so anxious to play this game, please, somebody helpme
Thanks

Try to copy all files onto your hard disk (including all hidden/system files) if this fails, your cd is broken. If this works, I recommend installing it from your hard disk and use a virtual cd emulator of some sort.

But first: Try to copy ALL files to your HD. If the game fails to install like you say, it's possible the cd is scratched.

If it is scratchet and have a cd-writer , you are saved because they are eqquipped with safety systems that also used when burning also by reading that your cd-rom player not have.
