Mss32.dll Download Zip File __LINK__
DLL stands for Dynamic Link Library, which serves as a set of instructions or functions for other programs to use. The purpose of a DLL file is to save disk space by providing quick access to code and data that are necessary for some applications to work. The benefit is that programs use a shared DLL instead of storing data in its files, thereby making your computer run faster.

Most DLL files are included in Windows installation by default. When you install a program, it assumes that the necessary library is present on your computer. If a particular DLL file is corrupt or missing, an error message appears.
In most cases, DLL errors are caused by viruses or other malware. Occasionally, it's because the DLL files are removed from the Windows Registry by accident, or no longer supported. Regardless, a DLL error is a sign that your computer is missing important data for applications to work.
The "MSS32.DLL" error message can be caused by several factors. MSS32.DLL is a critical component for some Windows applications, and the error message indicates that the file is corrupt or missing, which affects the program. This could be caused by malicious software, incorrect installations, faulty programs, registry issues, etc.
If the "MSS32.DLL is missing" error occurs, the DLL file in the Windows system folder needs to be replaced. This can be done with the help of advanced utility tools. You can also do it manually. However, the manual approach is risky as it may lead to more issues. The automatic solution requires minimal effort on your part.
Another likely scenario could be a malware infection. Malware is malicious software that can cause damage to DLL files, which results in error messages or even full system failure. Your system may be inefficient at dealing with malware, but you can perform scans to identify any existing problems.
Sir, first i faced the issue of missing file mss32.dll I downloaded that file and pasted in that folder where gta was installed i am using windows 7 and i tried a loy please help me in this it's a long time i m trying to solve this..
The game uses Miles Sound System (MSS). If you are having problems with sound just use one of the alternate mss32.dll files that you can download from the thread below. I used mss32.dll version 5.0p and it works perfect on my soundcard. Some LBA specific forums recommend mss32.dll v6.0m but I got glitches (clicking sounds) in audio with that file. The game's original mss32.dll is version 3.6b.
Game videos are in Smacker video format and they work without any problems. If you are having issues with videos you can try one of the alternate smackw32.dll files that are also included in the thread below. The game's original smackw32.dll is version 3.0h.
People who own the original retail CDs own either Version 1 (aka US Version) or Version 3 (aka European Version). Version number is stated in the LBA2.CFG file of the CD. LBAHQ installer used Version 1 CD. I don' think there is a Version 2 CD. Game executable name is LBA2.EXE in Version 3 CD and TWINSEN.EXE in Version 1 CD. Game executable sizes are slightly different. Version 1 CD has a TWINSEN subfolder, Version 3 CD has a LBA2 subfolder. Intro video in version 1 has a logo that says "Twinsen's Odyssey". Intro video of Version 3 has a logo that says "LBA2". Version 1 CD has English speech pack and 6 audio tracks for music. Version 3 CD has English, German and French speech packs but only has 1 audio track for music. The number of Wave files under the Music folder seem to be different on each CD, probably to make up for the different number of tracks. Gameplay and graphics are supposed to be identical based on the information shown on LBA specific websites. I did not notice any differences during gameplay.
LBAHQ edition installer of LBA2 is a special case. It is based on Version 1 CD's file structure, has Twinsen.exe executable, but it has 7 audio tracks and all 3 speech packs. I am not sure where the extra audio track came from. Maybe there is another version of LBA2 cd somewhere.
Game executables, installations, save games and CDs are interchangeable. You don't have to reinstall the game to compare a different version. Just change the CD in your drive, edit the LBA2.CFG file located in your installation folder and change the Version line to match the version of the CD in the drive (e.g. change it to "Version: 1" or "Version: 3"). If you forget to edit the version line, the game will not recognize the CD. Just to be safe, it might be a good idea to keep both TWINSEN.EXE and LBA2.EXE executables in your installation folder and use the executable that matches the CD, if you will be switching between different versions of the CDs.
GOG version of LBA2 supports DOSBOX out of the box. We need to generate the original windows & dos installation CD in order to run LBA2 in Windows via dgVoodoo. Disc image files are actually included in the GOG version of LBA2. They are stored in a special way that only DOSBOX and ImgBurn support. GOG uses version 3 of the installation CD (as stated in LBA2.CFG file).
1) Install GOG version of LBA2 if you haven't already. Try to install into "C:\LBA2" if you can since some people reported issues with other locations.2) If you already have an original retail installation CD and if the LBA2.CFG file located in the CD's LBA2 (or TWINSEN) folder has a line that says "Version: 3", you can skip to step 8. If there is a line that says "Version: 1", you can still proceed to step 8 but you also have to visit step 12 if you can not start the game.
3) Install ImgBurn version 2.5.8. Download it from MajorGeeks mirror because MajorGeeks host an installer that does not include OpenCandy (adware). Just to be safe, temporarily turn off your internet connection when you are installing ImgBurn. ImgBurn itself does not contain adware but some installers have adware that shows ads during installation. I am adding these warnings in case MajorGeeks change the installer they host between the time of this writing and the time that you read it. 4)Install Ogg vorbis directshow filters from the link below. These are required for ImgBurn to process the external OGG file of the LBA2 disc image. 5) Go to your LBA2 GOG installation directory and change the name of the file "LBA2.DAT" to "LBA2.CUE". This is a very smal 1kb file.6) Start ImgBurn, select "Write Image File To Disc", Open "LBA2.CUE" file in your LBA2 GOG directory as the source file, choose your CD/DVD burner as the destination, insert a blank CD into your burner, press the "Write" button. Wait until the burn process is complete.7) Congratulations, you now have an original LBA2 Windows and Dos installation CD. You can close ImgBurn. Rename "LBA2.CUE" back to "LBA2.DAT".
8 ) Go to your CD's LBA2 folder and copy the files smackw32.dll, mss32.dll and the folder VOX to the GOG LBA2 installation folder.9) Copy all dgVoodoo files into the GOG LBA2 installation folder.10) Edit the following line in your LBA2.CFG file. If you don't change this line, music will pause during speeches. Keeping it ON improves performance in DOSBOX as well.FlagKeepVoice: ON11) Double click LBA2.EXE to start the windows version of the game. If you are having issues with sound or videos (or experiencing crashes), please see my recommendations that are located in the beginning of this post regarding alternative versions of mss32.dll and smackw32.dll .12) If the game does not start, and if you have a Version 1 CD, edit LBA2.CFG that is located in your installation directory and change the version line to "Version: 1". You will have to change this line back to "Version: 3" if you want to switch back to the DosBOX version. If you can't get it to work, just create a Version 3 cd by following my instructions in steps 3 to 7.
1) Copy the contents of the LBA2 folder (or TWINSEN folder) of your CD to "C:\LBA2" folder. Name of the folder on the CD depends on the version of the CD.2) Go to your "C:\LBA2" folder and erase the sub folders named "DIRECTX", "MUSIC" and "VIDEO".3) Edit the following three lines in your LBA2.CFG file. The rest of the lines in LBA2.CFG will be automatically populated/fixed when you run the game for the first time.Language: EnglishLanguageCD: EnglishFlagKeepVoice: ON4) Copy all dgVoodoo files into the LBA2 installation folder.5) Run LBA2.EXE or TWINSEN.EXE to start the game. Name of the executable depends on the version of the CD you are using. If you are having issues with sound or videos (or experiencing crashes), please see my recommendations that are located in the beginning of this post regarding alternative versions of mss32.dll and smackw32.dll .
Vogons community member Peixoto recently added full support for "LBA2 European version" to his launcher/patcher tool. It also includes an installer for 64bit systems. Just insert the CD and install it using Peixoto's tool. Peixoto found a way to make the game look less blurry by removing texture filtering and fixed audio bugs. He also added xbox controller support to the game. You can download Peixoto's tool from the official thread linked below. If you have any questions regarding Peixoto's tool please ask it on its official thread. It is possible to chain Peixoto's tool with dgVoodoo for this game but this is not required.
BTW I found DINPUT.DLL at LBAHQ in some ZIP file with some fixes (Sound & Video Fix). It can be deleted because even if it's actually needed, updated version is part of Windows. The old version doesn't work anyway because it depends on Windows 9x specifics. 350c69d7ab
