View Full Version : Level Editor installed from hard drive?
08-03-2003, 02:39 AM
Is it possible? Can you somehow get the contents of the LE cd copied on the hard drive so it will install from the hard drive? I already tried to simply copy the cd to my hard drive and that didn't work (not that I really expected it to). Maybe I can use a cd emulator? Anybody done this already?
All I'm wanting to do is get a faster install time. I play a lot of custom games and it gets a bit tiresome waiting for the cd to install a fresh copy. Plus, I don't want my LE cd to shatter like JunoJim's did!:eek:

If you use program TR Level Manager you'll have not ever need to reinstall trle to use another custom level.
Level manager allows you to add in internal archive a lot of custom levels (max 99999) and choose which play simply selecting its name from list and clicking on PLAY button.

@ Paolone: Thanks for your reply. I looked briefly at your site and will probably try your project. It looks very interesting!
@ Whomever: Would still like the original question anwered.........just for the sake of curiosity even if I don't use an alternative like Paolone's.

Or you could just simply copy the TRLE root to another drive or folder after you've installed a cleam copy and then simply copy it back each time. ;)
As for CD emulators, i'm not sure of the legal issue, but generally speaking the protection on CD roms are there to stop you copying it in the first place. Just a thought.
You can use Clone CD or Alcohol 120 which can create virtual CD drives and copy any cd games (protected or not ;) ) and load them in their virtual drives, so you can access your favorist games instanly.
Alcohol 120 is more powerful, and has lots of support from the fan base. Also the success of copy protected games is dependant on the physical Cd drive you have.
My favorist is Liteon drives: fast, powerful and cheap and can do many things others can't.

@ dhama: Re: Emulators
True, but since the LE has been released by Core (or Eidos?) I thought no harm would be done by copying the CD to my hard drive. Sort of like making a backup copy.
After I posted this q, I realized then the answer could be to make a copy of a fresh install and use it when I need to play a custom game (just like you said :) ).
Why is it our minds give us the answer we need after the moment we need it has passed? And a similar question: Why does my wife (or myself) remember what we had forgotten AFTER we have left the house?
What a strange thing is the mind!
:p ;) :D
ps, Data could probably shed some light on this if she were here.:)
pps, Sang, thanks for your reply too!

Since all our minds are shared, we all know everything already; but just not aware of it because we clutter up our brains with so much useless stuff..... :D

The mind is too busy dealing with the stress of the needy moment.

That is simply her sadistic side coming out. :)

Why does it not work when you try to copy the setup files to your computer, do you get any error messages, and if so, what do they say?
I myself had no problems copying the files to my harddrive and installing it from there. Maybe you have the older version of the LE CD?
Re: Legality (is that a word? :D), since the LE can be freely downloaded, it is no problem to copy the files to your harddisk and run it from there.

Okay, I think I just stumbled on the problem. I remembered that I have the "View hidden and system files" option off. When I turned that option on, 6 more files showed up! I then copied the files again and ran the installation from my hard drive with no problems!
Thank you everyone, for your replies!:)
