run without cd? (2018-12-22 07:53) wbot
Can someone please tell me how I can disable cd check so that I can play this game without using the cd.
Action Adventure, good graphics - Playable, Windows 7-64 (2016-03-26 20:08) ge2001
Little Big Adventure 2 - Windows 7

1. Install the game using DOSBox, full install!
2. Setup the sound configuration
3. Copy the files "MSS32.DLL" and "SMACKW32.DLL" from the CD to your game directory
4. Copy the folders "MUSIC", "VIDEO" and "VOX" from the CD to your game directory (overwrite)
5. If you like to remove the CD-Check, do it here
6. Right click "LBA2.EXE" and set the compatibility mode
- Windows 95
- Deactivate Visual Designs
- Deactivate Desktop Design
- Deactivate Scaling for High DPI-Values
- Run as Administrator
7. Execute "LBA2.EXE" from Windows, not from DOSBox, to start the game

cool game
fixed (2008-09-03 20:27) takysoft
Corrected the rating to "supported" because i found a way to play.
Rip the game to a Cue/Bin ISO, and use IMGMOUNT.
the game works perfectly with the latest dosbox.

Wow! Tried out some DosBox versions. 0.72, 0.71 doesn't work with the game(game runs once, as i already wrote).

0.70 and back however works. Start the game, quit, start aganit, and the game runs perfect.
I'll write a mail to the dev team about this.

0.72
only got playable, because....
well, the game needs to check the original CD-label
if it's "LBA2", it does run.

But! Doesn't matter, how you mount the game, dosbox forgets the label.

Game starts first, but if you quit, and try to start it again, it'll ask for the CD.

Restart dosbox, game starts again. But if you just play, there are places in the game, where it checks the cd-label again, so you can't continue the game(like after freeing the lighthouse keeper).

Tryed the current cvs(and 3 older ones), but with those, the game absolutely doesn't start. Asks for CD. I think the cd-label option is disabled it the cvs.

I might try older dosbox.. 0.71 maybe, but i don't think it'll work.
Additional information to ChaosFishs guide (2008-05-04 16:06) red
to mount the cd on a linux system type:
mount d /media/cdrom0 -t cdrom -label LBA2 -ioctl -usecd 0
or
mount d /media/cdrom1 -t cdrom -label LBA2 -ioctl -usecd 1
depending wich cd/dvd-drive you are using.
See the guide from ChaosFish for more info.

LBA 2 (2006-01-11 16:26) blueeagle69
On a AMD Athlon 2600+, I set the CPU cycles to 18500. Seems to give a happy blend. Even got Soundblaster 16 Emulation. (Using 0.63)

Sometimes does quit back to Windows. but this is normally ages into play, or sometimes boarding the Ferry for the first time.
I couldn't get it to run under windows(garbled graphics). The same in a DOS Window. So DOSBox rules!

I made this guide, use it and you will get LBA2 to run on DOSBox. http://magicball.net/forum/showpost.php?p=172798
does install but doesn't run (2004-04-18 05:41) OlafTheUser
LBA2 tells me it cant find its CD. Dosbox 0.61
windows (2004-01-07 07:32) Prutger
i think it works better under windows
Note: (2003-10-15 10:49) ChaosFish
Must choose "no soundcard" for the game to work. Need to higher the CPU cycles for reasonable speed.
