Tomb Raider 3 ISO Drive Letter Fix 21-12-1998
Spider/CORE
Click to Download!   File Archive [75 KB]
Play Installation:
  • Use this patch to fix the 'No CD' problem on some systems. If you have a rather uncommon setup of your CD-ROM drive letters (e.g. you got more than one and moved them to the end of the alphabet), then Tomb Raider 3 ISO will most likely refuse to run. The reason is a bug in the CD-Check routine.

Tomb Raider 3 [ENGLISH/GERMAN] CD-Copy UPDATE! 28-11-1998
THE DICEMAN
Click to Download!   File Archive [15 KB] - ENGLISH/EURO Release
Click to Download!   File Archive [15 KB] - GERMAN Release
Click to Download!   File Archive [15 KB] - ITALIAN/EURO Release
Play Instructions:

As you might know there are 4 tracks on the original CD, 3 of them are FAKE (dummy tracks). Only the first track is valid so don't worry about missing music etc.
Also if you look at the files on the CD you will see that there are 5 hidden dummy files which are very big is size (about 3 Gb in total!).

These are the BIG dummy files:

  • awcs.afp
  • config.afp
  • neir.afp
  • oket.afp
  • vfaw.afp

The first crack I made (TR3CRACK.ZIP) needed these files to be on the CD. So only a uncracked ImageCopy was possible.
This apparently gives problems with some software so here is another way to make a fixed CD-Copy:

  • Copy the full contents of the CD to harddisk, except for the dummy files!
  • Make the following file Read/Write: TOMB3.EXE
  • Patch TOMB3.EXE (966656 bytes) using this file:
    • ETM3.EXE - for the ENGLISH/EURO Release
    • GTM3.EXE - for the GERMAN Release
  • Burn the contents back to a CD-R and leave the CD label blank (as is the original CD label)
NOTE: Both the ENGLISH & GERMAN have the same filesize (966656 bytes). Make sure you use the right patch for the right language!
  For all other language versions that might exist of this game
  The ENGLISH/EURO patch now also appears for work for the US, FRENCH & ITALIAN version of TR3!
  These patches don't work if you already used the previous patch!
Tomb Raider 3 CD-Copy 27-11-1998

Play Instructions:
  • Grab all 4 tracks to harddisk (I used WinOnCD to do this, other burn software will also work).

    • track3.raw  - fake music track
    • track4.raw  - fake data track
  • Create & Burn a Mixed Mode CD using track 1 & 4, leave out track 2 & 3 to make the CD smaller than 74 minutes (some of the burn software don't allow Data/Audio/Audio/Data tracks).
  • Install the game.
  • Patch TOMB3.EXE (966656 bytes) using this file: TMB3CRACK.EXE
  • Play the game!
NOTE: This patch should work on any version of this game
