At the sweating point all I did was checked my sound card bi clicking "test".
It worked because the chap said "Right Lets go adventuring!"
.. something went wrong after that because clicking 'exirt'
was too easy.
But I was glad I got the speak to Lara Losing Battle.

Back down memory grave
I bought this when it first came out. It was a gamechanger pardon the pun. The first of it's kind.
I have nearly all of the subsequent adventures and the first one I bought in a collectors edition with a t shirt, deck of cards (still unopened), Mouse mat and a second CD with extra levels and a level builder (I think).
Playing it here has reminded me how good the original game was (I can't currently play the original CD 'cos it's not compatible with Win10 or even XP which I still have a working laptop of).
In 2004 I moved to a small village in Oxfordshire and over a garden wall encountered one of the original team who created the game (Hi Nathan [Mcree responsible for music and soundscape] if you read this!) and became friends. He's in Czech Rep now. (I'm in Sweden)
It's still a classic and the following episodes are good too. I recently picked up free versions of the latest iterations on Steam and they are fun too. But maybe I'm kidding myself but feel there's something not quite as fresh, innovative, quirky and lacking in the wit of the original?
How many old game players does it take to change a light-bulb? I don't know but the original was the best.
Blast from the past. Good fun although not as good because it's slower and poorer graphics.
