    WINE and PC Version Tomb Raider Legend issue
    Despite successful installation and the CD ROM trying to run in the disc drive when I click Play via the autorun, my Mac throws up the following message:

    'No disc inserted. Please insert the original TombRaider7 CD/DVD.'

    I'm running on a Macbook Pro El Capitan OS, I've gone through winecfg and changed the target directory in WINE manually as autodetect thought the CD drive was a floppy!
    I've installed Xquartz 2.7.7 and checked the game's compatability against WINEHQ website and it's rated Silver/Platinum.

    I've tried Wineskin/ Virtualbox and I really don't want to go down the root of Bootcamp (again) as it screwed my system over nor do I have a hard copy of XP anymore.

    I would greatly appreciate it if someone could please guide me in how I can fix this. I'd greatly appreciate it.

    Welcome to our forums.

    Is the disc an original TombRaider7 one or is it a copy? If it's original, it appears that it's not being recognized.

    I personally have tried to run Windows games via WINE with some success. However, any game or app that is fairly complex is a crap shoot with WINE. I can't speak for VirtualBox since I have never tried running games when I had it installed. Boot Camp on the other hand, always worked well.

    Not sure how you can fix it other than keep trying all the tricks that are available with using Wineskin. Also, I believe they still have a forum up that you can ask for help from there.

    PS: I like your Kitty.

    Thank you for your response. Yes, the CD is an original copy hence why Iím a little frustrated that I canít play the Tomb Raider series anymore (and I have the full collection in PC version except for one WINE and PC Version Tomb Raider Legend issue)

    I have tried to sign up to their forum but I failed their anti-bot test. I didnít have the answers to their rather difficult questions so Iíve gotta wait to try again.
    Iíll try Wineskin again to see if I get any further; Iím not ready to give up yet.

    Thank you for your compliment, she was my late cat; Bella whom I lost back in September.

    Thanks for posting back. I know from experience it's not easy to get a Windows game running right with WINE. Looks like your efforts paid off.

    Have fun.
