(Update) Great News! It's fixed, well sort of. I kept trying to play and the game kept crashing until I just thought about getting as far as I can even though the audio loop could crash my game. I proceeded to the LoadNextLevel Trigger after you jump over the gate next to the transit system. Apparently, the process of loading the next level does not save your weapons or anything from the previous level, including the audio loop. I was able to save from there. The problem can still occur later on but I now know that by proceeding to the next level, it can be fixed. Thank you for all your suggestions on fixing my problem!
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I just bought the game and so far I am loving it. I'm playing with the vanilla version and I've had problems here and there but one problem halts my progress in the game. In the beginning of the game (the part where you first see the long-necked dinosaurs), the game plays audio to make it more dramatic but after a couple of seconds, the audio loops. The audio looping is annoying but manageable; however, when the audio loop is happening and I try to hit esc and save the game, the entire game freezes until the game crashes soon after. There is no way around it because the audio keeps looping forever until the game crashes so I am unable to save the game at the moment. I've looked at the patches produced on this site and none of them address this problem ( and the guide to installing these patches are confusing, if there is a video on how to setup the patches to the game, please link me the video). I'm really interested in this revolutionary game and want to play more but I'm unable to progress. Is there any way to fix this?

Well, that's weird (and nice to see a new member). It's loops, you mean like a skipping record? There'd be no reason
for that other than the stream.tpa file is somehow corrupt, or at least no other reason that I can think of. I'll leave it
to others to guide you with the patches, but I'd suggest using the quickload menu patch which can be downloaded from
the main site under patches. Afterwards, try loading up the 2nd level and see if you have any further audio troubles.

The quickload button allows you to access all levels of the game; there's a console cheat for doing so too, but I can't
recall keyboard sequence at the moment.

@Btw, are you playing off of the CD, or did you do a harddrive installation?

Thanks for replying so fast Rebel! Yes the audio loops like a broken record. It constantly plays a couple seconds of the music over and over again. I would like to see how the patches could help but reading the guides on the installing the patches are confusing. Is there a video you can link me to to install the patch? Or can you tell me where to drop the patch file? (If it's more confusing than just dropping a file in the game files then is there an easy explanation you can give me on installing the patch?)

Welcome to TresCom! :)

Sadly there is not a video that shows how to install any of the patches. I don't think I've heard about this issue before. Usually people had issues with no audio at all instead. It could be that the base game is not that compatible with modern systems.
Instead of the quickload patch you could use the cheat: "Hold CTRL+Shirt+Q+W and then release W" at the main menu. Load "JR" and see if you have the same issue.
The patch I would otherwise recommend is the CE patch: viewtopic.php?f=6&t=10674

Download "tpass-ce_v107e.zip" from the first post.
Open or extract the archive anywhere you want.
Open "contrib.zip" and put "D3DX9_43.dll" in the same folder where you've installed the game. (Recommended to install the game outside of "Program Files" in modern systems due to privilege issues or run it as admin.)
Open "tpass-ce.zip". Put "tpassp6.exe" in the same folder where you've installed the game.
Go into the "doc" folder and put "tpass.ini" in the same folder where you've installed the game.
Go into the "configs" folder and pick one of the .INI files and rename it to "trespasser.ini" and put it in that installation folder. I would go with "trespasser_dx9.ini" at first depending on your system.
Download OpenAL: https://www.openal.org/downloads/oalinst.zip and install that as CE uses it to enhance some of the audio.

This should be it. And hopefully you should be able to run the game properly. :)

Thank you for giving me the helpful guide that is much easier to understand than the ModFolderTemplate. Sadly, I tried to put the "D3DX9_43.dll" file into game's folders but a message pops up saying that I need to insert a writable disc. I think the game disc cannot take in new files. Is there a way to overcome that? The only thing I can think of is to copy all the disc's files and put it somewhere, and then follow your guide and add new files to the copied ones and then burn those files into a blank disc so I can have 2 discs( one vanilla and one patched). I don't have to burn the files onto a disc but it would be nice to have another psychical copy of the game. Would that work? If not, is there a solution you can think of?

The game can not be played from a disc. Either you must install it and play it with a CD or put the disc content on the hard drive and install it from there (then you can play without the CD).

We recommend everyone install Trespasser not from the CD but from a folder in which the CD contents were copied into. Things such as fan modifications all require this.
