FIXED!!! Kazakhstan Crash Direct2drive
Uninstalled, left saved games there.
Re-downloaded all 3 parts
Created folder on desktop (TRL)
Extracted 1/3 to TRL folder on desktop
Extracted 2/3 to TRL folder on desktop
Extracted 3/3 to TRL folder on desktop
Ran setup.exe in TRL folder on desktop
Game installs, run TRL.exe shortcut on desktop
Enabled 1920x1600, all details on, 8x ainso in driver settings, high quality.
Start game, check settings, switched to wide screen, noted that Next Gen was turned on.
Loaded last saved game (finished)
Loaded up Kazakstan
Felt jaw drop as the game loaded, cinematic played and I jump down as the parachute deployed.
I think the problem was this:
The first time I downloaded the 3 compressed installer files, I uncompressed them each into their own folder on my desktop, created a new folder "Tomb Raider Ledgend Install:"
Went to uncompressed folder 1/3, hit ctrl-a for select all, ctrl-x for cut, went to the new (empty) "Tomb Raider Ledgend Install" folder on my desktop and hit ctrl-v to pasted
Went to uncompressed folder 2/3, hit ctrl-a for select all, ctrl-x for cut, went to the new (with 1/3 already in it) "Tomb Raider Ledgend Install" folder on my desktop and hit ctrl-v to pasted
Went to uncompressed folder 3/3, hit ctrl-a for select all, ctrl-x for cut, went to the new (with 1/3 and 2/3 in it) "Tomb Raider Ledgend Install" folder on my desktop and hit ctrl-v to pasted
Every time I would uninstall / reinstall to troubleshoot I would use the files in the "Tomb Raider Ledgend Install" folder.
The directions in the download page clearly state 'uncompress all 3 files into the same folder... my bad for not following directions 100%
Perhaps there were some hidden files that didn't get cut / pasted over to my "Tomb Raider Ledgend Install" folder?
I compared the folder properties to "Tomb Raider Ledgend Install" and "TRL" and they both read, "4.89 GB (5,257,691,136 bytes)" "21 files, 0 folders"
So I'm not sure what the issue was, but it works now. Hopefully this will be useful to someone for a solution...
