Playstation Music and Unfinished Business expansion
By Xazuki
This guide covers:
  • Restoring the Playstation music that is absent from the Steam version of Tomb Raider.
  • Installing the expansion pack Tomb Raider: Unfinished Business.
  • Making the expansion pack playable without breaking the original Tomb Raider installation.

Playstation Music
The Playstation version of Tomb Raider contained extra music that played at certain points during the game. These pieces of music added a lot to the ambience and setting of the game but are unfortunately not included in the PC version of Tomb Raider. This guide adds them to your Steam version of Tomb Raider so the extra music will play just like the Playstation version.

Tomb Raider: Unfinished Business expansion pack
A PC only expansion pack was released for free to owners of the PC version of Tomb Raider. The expansion pack itself is known as Tomb Raider: Unfinished Business or sometimes Tomb Raider Gold: The Shadow Of The Cat. The expansion contains four new levels of a higher difficulty then the regular game. This guide will let you install the expansion pack for your Steam version of Tomb Raider without breaking the original Tomb Raider.
Downloading the required file
Both the Playstation Music and the Unfinished Business expansion come from the same setup file. The files we will use to add the Playstation music and installing the Unfinished Business expansion are created by this setup file. Windows Vista or later is required for this mod to work.
  • Download the 360mb file TR1 & UB Vista/Vienna x32/64 setup v 1.6 from the website Tomb Raider Hub[www.tombraiderhub.com]. It's in the Essential Software section.
  • Extract and run the file Tomb Raider setup 1.6.exe from the zip file.
  • When the installer starts, click next two times.
  • Untick the box Install Direct3D Update and then click next.
  • Click the install button to install the files to "C:\tombraider".
  • 64bit Operating System users only: Some people have reported that on 64bit operating systems you may need to run the other file included in the download, Tomb Raider 1.6 Installer Patch.exe, after installing the first file.
This will create a folder on your computer which has an installation of Tomb Raider and Unfinished Business that doesn't work without an original Tomb Raider CD. This doesn't matter as in the next sections we'll merely be copying files from this installation for use with your Steam version of Tomb Raider.
Adding the Playstation music
NOTE: During this part of the guide you will need to be able to see file extensions on your files to be able to rename them. If you can't see the file extensions (.exe for example) on the files in your folders, you need to disable the Windows option Hide extension for known file types[windows.microsoft.com].
  • Go to the newly created folder "C:\tombraider" on your computer.
  • Select and copy the two files tombeng.bin and tombeng.cue.
  • Go to the location of your Steam Tomb Raider installation. By default this should be located somewhere similar to: "C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\Tomb Raider (I)\".
  • Paste the two files into this folder.
  • In the Steam Tomb Raider folder, delete the file GAME.DAT.
  • Rename the file tombeng.cue to GAME.DAT .
  • Return to the Tomb Raider installation at "C:\tombraider" and copy the file tomb3dfx.EXE.
  • Go back to your Steam Tomb Raider installation and this time go into the TOMBRAID folder.
  • Delete the existing tomb.EXE file.
  • Paste the tomb3dfx.EXE file in it's place and then rename it to tomb.EXE .
This will have enabled the Playstation music for the Steam version of Tomb Raider and you will be able to hear it at certain points in the game just like the Playstation version.

NOTE: If you want to revert to the default Tomb Raider files for any reason, such as the mods not working correctly, then right click Tomb Raider I in your Steam library and select Properties. Then click the Local Files tab and then Verify Integrity of Game Cache. This will force Steam to redownload any files that have been modified. You may need to delete the modified files (GAME.DAT and tomb.EXE) for this to take effect.
Installing Tomb Raider: Unfinished Business
  • Go to the folder "C:\tombraider" on your computer.
  • Select and copy the file tombub.exe and the folder named DATA.
  • Now go into the TOMBRAID folder located in your Steam Tomb Raider installation. By default this should be located somewhere similar to: "C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\Tomb Raider (I)\TOMBRAID\".
  • Paste both the tombub.exe file and the DATA folder here.
  • Go up a folder level back to the Steam Tomb Raider folder and find the file named dosboxTR.conf.
  • Create a duplicate of the file by copying and pasting to the same location. Rename this new file to dosboxTRUB.conf. You should now have the original file called dosboxTR.conf and a new file called dosboxTRUB.conf.
  • Edit the new file dosboxTRUB.conf with a text editor and scroll to the very bottom of the file. Look for a line that says tomb.exe. Edit this line so that it now says tombub.exe. Save and close the file.
  • Open Steam and in the bottom left corner click ADD A GAME... and then Add a Non-Steam Game.... Click the browse button and navigate to the Steam Tomb Raider folder.
  • Click dosbox.exe and then the open button, then the ADD SELECTED PROGRAMS button.
  • Go to you Steam Library and find the game in the list that is currently named dosbox. Right-click it and select Properties.
  • Click the CHOOSE ICON... button if you want to replace the dosbox icon with a different icon.
  • In the first entry box replace the word dosbox with Tomb Raider I: Unfinished Business.
  • In the second entry box leave the text but go to the end of the line. Now type in the following text after the existing text:
    -conf dosboxTRUB.conf
  • The screenshot below shows exactly where to place this text. After doing this click the close button.
Example screenshot of where to put the text.

Tomb Raider: Unfinished Business is now ready to launch from within Steam. You can run either Tomb Raider or the expansion pack from your game list and either should work correctly.
Cleaning up unused files
Now both the music files and expansion pack have been installed, it is best to clean up and remove the unused files that have been created along the way.
  • In your Steam Tomb Raider folder, you can delete all the .mp3 files and GAME.GOG as these files are no longer used. This recovers approximately 280mb of space.
  • Go to "C:\tombraider" and run the file called unins000.exe. This will only remove the temporary Tomb Raider installation, NOT your Steam Tomb Raider installation. This will recover approximately 630mb of space.

Congratulations! You have now restored the Playstation music to the original game and added the Tomb Raider: Unfinished Business expansion pack shortcut to your Steam list of games!

Thanks to the people who created all the fixes contained in the download. Thanks to the people at Tomb Raider Hub for hosting the files used in this guide. Thanks to the people at the GOG Tomb Raider forum for their help.

Awesome! Worked flawlessly on Win7 64. Time for my first TR1 playthrough

p.s. I find that this image[tombraiders.net] works well for Library grid view.

The audio worked fine... now nothing works not even TR1. 6.99 well spent.

You'll have to look at GLIDOS's own specific way of running the audio and Unfinished Business, this page apparently has the info: http://www.glidos.net/audio.html

okay I got this working before with your tutorial, but now TRI or GOLD does not work?? I've done multiple reinstalls..and have followed this tutorial.

Got UB working normally, but how do I get it to run in GLIDOS? I can run TR I with GLIDOS why not UB?

For people who had issues with getting nGlide working with the game after installing the expansion, this is what worked for me: Don't follow the steps outlined in "Cleaning up unused files" - just leave them alone.

Before trying that I was following the guide carefully using a fresh game install, and installing nGlide afterwords. This would 100% of the time result in the game starting in a small window after the 3Dfx logo. My latest install works perfectly with nGlide, and the only thing I did differently was not uninstalling C:\tombraider or removing the unused files from the steam installation. I have no idea why that works, but it's something to try.

Thanks a lot for this helpful guide. I've had some issues removing the tomb.EXE file and renaming the tomb3dfx.EXE file, whatever I tried I couldn't remove it or rename it because these files were supposedly already in use (even after restarts and in Windows safe mode)
I managed to remove the file and rename the other file eventually by downloading a free program called LockHunter. If anyone has similar problems I'd recommend downloading this free software from lockhunter.com, which allowed me to remove the tomb.EXE file and rename the tomb3dfx.EXE file (apparently these files were already in use by Windows Explorer which seems rather odd)
