How to run Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light in a window (sort of)

  1. Make sure that the game is set to run in a resolution lower than your monitor’s resolution (right-click its entry in Steam and choose Setup Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light).
  2. Download DxWnd.
  3. Extract the downloaded archive (which will be called something like v2_05_14_build.rar) to a new folder.
  4. Download GoL2.dxw to somewhere, e.g. the DxWnd folder.

    You may also want to download GoL.dxw, an older version of GoL2.dxw. Only use it if GoL2.dxw doesn’t work. When imported, it will show up as GoL.

  5. Run dxwnd.exe in the DxWnd folder.
  6. Click the File menu, then Import ..., and choose GoL2.dxw.
  7. Click the newly added Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light entry, then the File menu, then Run.

    If nothing happens, you may have the game installed in a nondefault location. Click the Edit menu, then Modify, and adjust Path to the correct value. On this screen, you can also adjust X and Y to change where the game window will appear.
