Running the first Tomb Raider under Windows 7

A while back, I picked up the first five Tomb Raider games on eBay. Being farely old games, they were not designed to run with Windows 7 at all, but at the time I had a machine running XP, and after some tinkering, I got them to work without too many issues.

Now I'm running Windows 7 it's a different story.

I downloaded an installer for Windows 7 64 bit for it at

and it works, sort of.

Apparently it's running through DosBox, but the edges of the screen are cut off and it slows down something chronic in large rooms.

If anybody can help me out getting it to run better and getting the picture the right size, I'd very much appreciate it. I'm not very tech-savvy myself, though, so you'd pretty much have to spoon feed me any info about it.

Ta muchly, folks.
