    Emulating Tomb Raider 1,2,3,4 etc on ps1/psx emulator

    Anybody know how to do this without having a physical disc that works? I do have an original copy but i think its a bit too damaged for me to use it, Any way for me to get these classic Tomb Raiders running on an emulator like ePSXe? Tried troubleshooting the black screen freeze a few weeks ago and i spent hours but just couldn't solve the problem... thanks in advance...

    Why not just buy them on PC?

    If you have ps3 you can also get these on there fairly cheaply

    Just buy a new copy of it for a few pounds as it's cheaper than repairing the disc. Also what are you running ePSXe on as you can run the emulator on various platforms. I just assume you're running it on an android tablet with a OTG PS controller.
    It's about £4.99 on steam for PC if you're emulating on that.

    If you buy it off GOG for the PC it's a little steeper but there's information on how to patch it for glide support. As tombraider is so damn fugly.

    I found a cd key for Euro 33.55 (£28.59) for Tomb Raider collection PC. Or try PCSX-Reloaded

    You must be having a graphics problem. Try changing your video/graphics settings and see if that works .
    Any other games you tried on the ePSXe that work without problems ?

    ​Yeah i trouble-shooted it... the problem is something to do with the game having alot of music tracks, but no other games seem to have that issue

    ​Pcsx-reloaded, can you confirm that you've got tomb raider to work on that emu?

    What spec is your device as the emulator doesn't require much hardware wise so you may need to fiddle with plugins

Those posts are from a few years ago and It's recently came out that they install malware or something similar if you download it now, so I'm not going near it now

    You shouldn't need to as ePSXe is ok with CDDA titles. I would happen to guess your rip is crap ( copy protected/ borked)

    Did the game you have come with a .sub file and have you enabled subchannel option ?
