Cadaver747: Thanks! The link still works and game is playable with music (even Unfinished Business).

Meaning that if you want to play Tomb Raider 1 in 1280x720 resolution (IMO the best widescreen res. for old games from 90s) your desktop should be set in that very same resolution, which is highly inconvenient.

jnisbet: You're welcome. To specify a custom resolution that's different from your desktop resolution, open patches\tombati.ini (or tombub.ini) and find and set "resolution_width" and "resolution_height " to the values that you want (1280 and 720, respectively, in your case).
What a coincidence ! Right at the moment when I decide to run the good old series once again, starting from the very beginning. Fate rocks! Thanks for the tweaks, bro'

Cadaver747: There are only 2 bad things about that Russian Community Patch:
1. they used nGlide wrapper which have its weird flickering textures and distance fog
2. they added "Tomb Raider Russian Community" logo into introduction FMV
1. I'm not going to apply that patch, but you should be able to switch back to the Rage3D wrapper by replacing the glide*.dll files with the Rage3D ones (either from my zip or downloaded from one of the links in the OP).

2. It's possible that they simply replaced one of the intro logos--perhaps the Core Design logo--with their own. If so, then you can probably remove it by deleting that video file or replacing it with either the original one (that was extracted from GAME.GOG) or the non-interlaced version.

You're welcome, though much of the credit goes to badsector for this thread and pointing out the files in the first place.

BTW, when you finish TR1 and are ready to start on TR2, the following thread will likely prove very useful, since I couldn't even run TR2 until I found it:

"I have updated TombATI so that it can use the higher quality Play Station in-game movies. If you want those, install this archive: Higher quality FMV files for TombATI."

I'm sorry but PC version of FMVs are full of crap, I suggest to look here (link above).

jnisbet: Here are my instructions, hopefully simplifying the process for everyone:
Doesn't work for running it on Linux via Wine :( Step 3a for using your TR1_Win.zip only crashes under Wine 2.6. Haven't tried newer wine versions, 2.8 in particular doesn't even display a desktop for me. Some DLLs have since been updated in the upstream exe file (1.7 as of this writing)

Here's my steps (guided by this reddit post, this post on tombraiderforums.com and this post by ronnie_r (thanks for override hints!)):
$ for commands to be run on the terminal, # for comments (no commands as root necessary)
1. Set up a fresh prefix with 32bit: (optional, haven't tried by 64bit one yet)
$ export WINEARCH=win32
$ export WINEPREFIX=/home/user/.wine32 # or a path of your choosing
$ wine wineboot
2. Set up necessary libraries:
Install winetricks
$ wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Winetricks/winetricks/master/src/winetricks
$ chmod u+x winetricks
$ ./winetricks d3dx9_36
$ ./winetricks gdiplus # this will download SP1 of Windows 7 and will take some time depending on your Internet connection
3. Extract TombATI and and GoG game contents
Copy TombATI_v1.7.exe and GAME.GOG from your GOG installation to your wine's C: drive
~/.wine32/drive_c/ $ wine TombATI_v1.7.exe
# C:\ in the installer is fine because it is going to create it's own subdirectory (TOMBATI) inside
Let it run through and accept VC C++ redistributable installation.
It's not going to find any game data to copy over. Don't worry!
4. Patch the 10th level to get all possible secrets (optional)
Download the fixer and ppf-o-matic from this thread, move them to your wine installation, extract them, run ppf-o-matic3 against your GAME.GOG and the supplied gog_game-gog.ppf.
5. Import GOG game data
# move your (patched) GAME.GOG to C:\TOMBATI (~/.wine32/drive_c/TOMBATI) and change into that directory
$ wine TombRaiderImporter.exe
"Install from GoG" now says "Ready to install" - hit the upper Install button and wait a bit. Close the importer afterwards
6. Configure Wine
$ winecfg
Click "add application", find your tombati.exe, go to the libraries tab.
Add "ddraw" and "winmm", achknowledge the warning.
Both will now be listed as overrides (native, builtin).
Rpeat the same for tombub.exe.
7. Install HD texture packs (optional)
Download HD textures from this site and move it into your wine's C: drive.
Run in inside your C drive:
~/.wine32/drive_c/ $ wine TombATI_HD_Textures_v1.0.exe
Choose C:\TOMBATI as the target folder
8. Check your config files
Under C:\TOMBATI\patches, find files tombati.ini and tombub.exe.
For tombati if you have the texture pack installed, add texture_directory = "TR1HD".
For tombub, remove the texture_directory line, otherwise the game won't start because there are not texture files for UB.
9. Enjoy!

Your old savegames from DOSBOX will not work if you copy them over. I just started the eighth level and was able to recreate everything using the following method:
1. Download Tombedit from this page
2. Open all savegames and note down items and weapons for the individual levels
3. Recreate beginning-of-level saves in the TOMBATI installation (by skipping levels)
4. Rename all saves from saveati.x to savegame.x
5. Open new saves in Tombedit, recreate ammo count and items (Scion etc)
6. Rename saves from savegame.x back to saveati.x
7. All loaded up fine for me until level 8, where I'll continue playing :)


If you're running in Docker (I do because my system is pure 64bit Gentoo installation, I don't want/need 32bit multilibs and I don't trust random self-extracting exe files), make sure to enable SYS_PTRACE (via --cap-add SYS_PTRACE or cap_add:\n - SYS_PTRACE). Sounds odd and I initially added it only to debug TombRaiderImporter.exe, but dropping that capability from the container causes an error message to insert the game CD for me and the game doesn't start - weird)
Wow, this was very easy to install!
But how can I use my old savegames from the regular GOG version? I copied the savegames and renamed them properly (e.g. saveati.0) and I see them in the "Load game" menu, but when I try to load them, the game crashes...

Any idea how I can use them?

jnisbet: Wow. This works great. No more DOSBox! Thanks, badsector, for bringing this to our attention.

Here are my instructions, hopefully simplifying the process for everyone:

Thank you so much for your instructions, this was a very easy game to patch with your guidance :D I can't believe I can finally play TR1 ideally now!
