That's okay, you don't need to make excuses for my ineptitude. :B I thought I'd reached the page and it was a dead link, but maybe I just didn't wait very long considering the first link was dead. (I'd also just spent the morning on the WayBackMachine, and had gotten far too used to dead links.)
I know this thread is almost a year old but both mirrors are down. Is anyone willing to send me a copy of the patch or point me to where I can download it? Thanks
I was wondering since the mirrors are down if someone could either mirror these files again or perhaps send them to me. I'd really really like to experience the game with AA enabled.
this is useful ...i help find fixes for a number of older games .and it is always a pleasure to see people working to preserve and share ways to enjoy great titles. I appreciate the posters in this thread and hope that the links can be revived.

will this patch help with my combo?
The game worked fine with the ATI CCC 3D defaults.
Then I tried to enhance the AA and AS, and the mouse would leave smudges on some screens.
The first place to notice problems is trying to load a saved game... the individual saved game frames will jiggle.
If the Lycos mirror goes down I will upload it somewhere else, but it seems to be working fine ATM: http://members.lycos.nl/tempest/index.html or http://members.multimania.nl/tempest/index.html
The e-mail address in the archive no longer works, since that host was taken over by XS4ALL some years ago.

Hi, I wanted to add AA in TLJ, I installed the patch and set the antialiasing Nvidia control panel but when I turn on the TLJ. Characters and objects are flashing.
There is a some solution?
Too bad, I thought that there is a solution.
Install this patch to have AA.
(Sorry for my English.)

sorry for reviving the thread, but this is the best lead i have so far for the AA causing flickering problem
I tried applying the patch files, but then i can't start the game, i get the error msg in the attached pic.
im running Win7 32bit, ATI Radeon 4870HD
im running the GOG version
EDIT- i noticed the patch file of the .dll has a version number of 126.96.36.199, while the original i have in the folder is 188.8.131.52, could this mean something?

This patch was for the original release of the game. It won't work with newer versions. Reinstall your GOG version and turn off AA.
Tried this again today and somehow, suddenly... it works... Sometimes you can actually see things get anti-aliased though, but it looks gr8 overall! ;D

i actually managed to get it to work, without the patch tho
I just copied the DIRECTX section from the preferences.ini in the installation folder, into the preferences.ini in the app data folder, some tweaks inside there, and works great with the AA turned on
While a lot of the game works ok with AA enabled, it does tend to break cutscenes and other first-person views. A good way to test it is to look out of April's window near the start of the game; if you can see the canal view then you should be ok, but with AA enabled often the game will appear to freeze before it gets to that point.
