Hey guys any advice would be welcome.
I can not get to work on my system. I followed the install video to a T. I can run the norm exe file fine but i get the letterboxed low res of the game.
When I try to run the Tpassp6 exe I get a error that I need to insert the cd into Drive D.
The game is installed on Drive C: (default) and the disk is in Drive G:
Game Installed from Original Game Disk in Drive G:
This is the page I found the "how to instructions" that I followed - ... indows-10/

I am running Windows 10 Pro 64 bit
Intel i7-8700k 3.70
Memory 32 GB
GeForce RTX 2080 Driver 442.59
DirectX 12
Screen Rez 3840 X 2160

Welcome, to Jurassic Passer.

...Hmmm. I'm unfamiliar with a video about installing Trespasser. But my first question is: did you install the game from the CD, or did you install it from a copy of the CD files on your computer with no CD in the drive? A vital detail.

"I see it." [said Sarah]
"The box is in backward. Flip all the switches the other way. Are you dry?"
"No, Doc. I'm soaking wet, lying in the damn mud."

1.- Copy the contents of the Trespasser CD to a folder somewhere on you HDD, for example, C:\TresCD.
2.- Eject the CD and store it somewhere safe.
3.- Run the installer (setup.exe) from the folder where you copied it into and install the game to the a different location (usually C:\Program Files\Dreamworks Interactive\Trespasser).
4.- DON'T delete the folder where you copied the CD files.
5.- Run the game and from the mane menu, set up the various audio, video and controls options.
6.- Exit the menu back to Windows.
7.- NOW extract the Trespasser CE files to the same folder where Trespasser has been installed.
8.- Run the CE executable and set up the audio and video options again so that you can use the capabilities of modern PCs.
9.- Go back to the main menu and click on "New game".
10.- Enjoy playing Trespasser.

Welcome to TresCom!

Use the steps machf provide. It is the best experience as well, specially if you plan on playing any mods.

You have a quite powerful PC, when you get CE to work, please report back about your performance. :D
