Smile Newbie Newbie Newbie!

Hi all! I can't tell you how excited I was to find this community.

I was listening to some tunes at vgmix.com and happened across a song that made me very nostalgic for LBA. I had begged my parents for it for Christmas when it originally came out and it was one of my all time favorite gaming moments.

But back to the present...

I've been trying to locate LBA after having sold mine off years ago. *Bad me!* I almost won a bid on ebay for a copy, and I picked up LBA2 which should be arriving at my door shortly. Hopefully the LBA2 patch will get it to work for me, as I have the dreaded Win2k/GeForce 2 setup.

Anyway, before continuing my quest for LBA (most likely to resume on EFNet ) I wanted to see if I'd be able to get it to run at all. I downloaded the demo and tried patching with the LBA1 patch and I'm still having alll kinds of problems. Who knew that SVGA sucked so much?!

Does anyone know whether the patch works on the demo, or should I dive right back into full LBA goodness?

Eh, doesn't bother me.

And just in case anyone's interested, this is the song that rekindled my LBA quest.

waaaaaazzzzzaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahh @ arognlie

I don't think the patch works with the demo. But the demo is really short anyway, not really worth playing imho.

Yeah, I know the demo is short. I played it when it first came out many years ago. If I recall, it doesn't go much further than the initial escape from the prison...

I was just trying to see if I could get things running.

Hi

text [email address] and I might be able to sort you out with LBA1. You can get catch me on ICQ\MSN\Yahoo too if you like.

I'd guess the patch wouldn't work on the Demo regardless. The full game's worth a shot me thinketh.

Raymond: we do not support any warez versions of LBA because they are ripped.

So don't ask for the adresses please
