I've seen videos of Legend in Next Gen and switched it on at various points when I've played the PC version, but there was no point of which the graphics looked as epically grand as these screenshots...

They definitely both are miles better. Next Gen Legend has advanced shadowing, bump maps, high definition textures and there's more polygons on everything.

I've never tried putting all settings up - it would go way too slow.

It will like the screens !
But play on oldgen version it's will better if you can active all the effects on nexxtgen.
The best is really a console ! You never have to be worried by the configuration :p

Well there is not much point comparing beta Xbox 360 screens to final PC ones anyway, not to mention it seems to be running on a something other than a normal Xbox 360 to get those angles and resolutions. Depends on your TV as to how colourful your game will be, no mine does not look exactly the same, I think it looks just as good if not better though.

The shot below is taken with a digital camera, but you can clearly see it is not exactly the same as the PC version. No one ever uses PC screens to advertise a game unless it is a PC exclusive game, you should realise that by now Phlip.

Why wouldn't they use PC screenshots? And since the Xbox 360 and PC versions are identical, I still think it's a fair comparison to use PC screens. I don't think it's a matter of colour - there is a big difference.

As you can see, the menu in the PC game has the graphics as in the screenshots seen on TRC.com, but in the actual game, the textures are different.

Bizzare, on CD's part, since the menu textures look better, IMO. :(

No Phlip they are not identical the Xbox 360 has far more graphical effects than the PC version. The major difference is that the early screenshots were beta one's, they were not the final game.

Woah, you're right! I wonder why they bothered to make two versions... I wonder if anyone could explore the title screen and see more of the actual level in those graphics, or if it's just a stub...

MyRaider4Life

I think CD altered there screens because they wanted to make the game look more appealing than it actually was, and they were probably using a 3rd party program to get those results and effects as well as the angles. ;)

Since the whole game's 3d stuff was designed in 3ds max, maybe they rendered from there itself with proper cameras? The bump mapping, lighting etc in those screens is far more superior than a 2006 machine would probably be able to handle.

They could have easily had a third mode. Last Gen, Next Gen and Next Next Gen. I know it sounds weird but give me one good reason why they couldn't have kept it for the future? It'd have been like TR1 having a complex shadows option which no computers would have been able to handle back then, but now could...

CelticGuard
20-02-10, 17:33
Why re-release a game with better graphics? Unless it really makes a major change like a complete remake (TRA) it makes no sense to do that.

Phlip
20-02-10, 17:37
Not rerelease, I mean have another mode with those graphics already in the game which you would only switch on a few years later. What hard could it do?

CelticGuard
20-02-10, 17:40
I don't think they would do that... creating 3d stuff takes a lot of time and patience, even if it means just adding high-res normal/bump maps to existing textures. There's the long process...planning,concepts,drawing the textures, making them 'proper', preparing uv-mapping them onto the model suitably, etc.

Although this would really be nice for us we would be paying much more for a game that we cannot enjoy to its fullest potential. They definitely are not going to let it away at the same price. ;)

Phlip
20-02-10, 17:51
They already had it all, it just should have been included in an extra mode.

Judging by the screenshots, it looks like an early version of legend (some geometry like vines are missing in 2nd pic) with really bright textures. On screens it probably looks good but maybe they were way too bright in game so they toned it down... I like the look of the new next-gen the way it is actually... :)

I hate that monotone coloured lighting in TRU, Legend looked far better for not using it, the colours stand out better. Also the edges are far to sharp in the beta screens and the waterfall looks horrible.

http://img12.imageshack.us/img12/7338/xbox360dscf0904.jpg

And no Lara's hair is not orange in the final version (although 1 level it seemed close), but if the light shines on it it does have some nice highlights, otherwise it just looks a nice warm brown rather than that horrible dark brown colour it is on the PC.

turn depth of field of with next gen on and it will look a lot more like x box version

LukeRaider
22-02-10, 02:56
^ Definitely. Depth of field in next-gen mode appears to also contain the light bloom effect (actually, I think they simply blurred parts of the screen to create a sort of bloom effect rather than coding in a separate bloom), so it really makes a huge difference. Next-gen almost doesn't look next-gen without it IMO.

But on my PC I have all settings turned on to high and it still looks nothing like those screenies from the OP. The shader for Lara's hair has never reflected like in that pic of her holding excalibur's tip.

(Oh, and a little tip for those who say next-gen runs too slow: if you're an NVidia user [with the absolute latest drivers], turn TRL's max pre-rendered frames to 8 in the NVidia Control Panel ;) ATI might have something like that, but I wouldn't know. Either way, if you do this, it will speed things up a LOT.)

Even the PC doesn't look like that.

aussie500
01-03-10, 08:58
The PC version does not have the extra lighting effects for Lara's hair, neither does the TRU PC version. You only get that effect on the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions. It is unlikely the PC version of TR9 will have it either. PC version also misses out on other lighting effects that the next gen consoles have. PC version might be capable of better resolution but how a game looks is not determined by resolution.

That's just one screen, but the pictures they posted pretty much looks the same as the ones you posted, just a little darker! My 360 looks the same as the screens as I have my T.V. set to give maxium colour and sharpness! You only judge by your own low setting PC when playing the game comaring them to the screens, but many who have a 360 with a HDTV and HDMI cable, Legend comes out very similiar to the screens! Legend 360, which the screens are taken from, look miles better than on PC, same goes for Underworld on PS3 and 360!

PC can have HDMI.TombRaider Underworld looks better on a maximum settings on latest graphics.Thrust me,I have a 40 inch plasma HD HDMI TV and underworld does not look close to PC version.Tombraider legend 360 on the other hand does look better for some unknown reason but not a great deal:ton:

I took the the few screens that Phlip posted on my PC With on max settings. :p (I'm glad you found the screens useful Phlip!)

I guess the 360 version and PC version look different then? Legend looks great in NG mode in some areas, but some (like in those spots in Bolivia) look really dull. I thought that the promo screens may have had the contrast and saturation played around with, Bolivia looks dull in comparison to those shots. The colours arent that vibrant, nor is the lighting.

I run both Legend and Underworld maxed out on my PC and the lighting in NG Legend is rubbish compared to the proper next gen graphics in Underworld . The lighting on Lara in particular is atrocious and makes her look like a soulless doll . Granted the scenery looks a fair bit better in NG mode , but Lara herself looks better in Normal mode . Don't get me wrong , the game still looks pretty decent in either mode on PC with the settings on high or max , but there's just something off with the lighting in NG mode ( Lara's face looks washed out as if a torch was being shone in her face ) . The XBox 360 pics of Legend look much better than NG mode in the PC version though although it's the other way with Underworld . On a good PC at a high res it looks better than the console versions . What some people are also forgetting about the different looks too , is that some TVs have their own dynamic lighting settings as well as other graphic effects that can make it actually look different on screen than what's actually being produced by the console :)

Next-gen graphics in Legend (and possibly other games too) can look vastly different depending on the PC's capabilities. Even stuff like graphics card makers seem to make a difference. For example, certain levels in Legend actually looked brighter (and even slightly better) on my old PC, which could barely run the game in next-gen, and which had an Nvidia card. In my new PC, which can run the game smoothly and which has an ATI card, the levels look dull and colourless.

I've had both a Nvidia ( 9800GT ) and Radeon ( HD5770 ) in the same PC ( upgraded from the Nvidia to the Radeon ) and while Next Gen mode looks better on the Radeon than the Nvidia ( I used to play in 1440 x 900 on the Nvidia whereas I play in 1920 x 1080 on the Radeon because I also upgraded the monitor to get the benefit of the more powerful card ) the lighting on Lara specifically looks off ( her face looks washed out like it would look if a huge torch was shining in her face ) . Sure , in less bright sunshine levels that isn't as noticable but even then her face still looks more plastic .

I Have been comparing the tombraiderchronicles screens with my 360 version and I tuned the tv settings alittle. It looks almost as good as the screens, some things got changed, but aren't necessarily worse. The PC Next-Gen version however is really really buggy and looks extremely worse then the 360 version. :)

I have a Nvidia8400...not the best, but it plays fast and looks good next gen. It is a bit darker but so much more depth

I don't know whether it is because of the enlargement but I think that looks aweful. the surrounding envionment isn't as detailed as Lara and while Lara, though not looking as bad as she does in the 360 version, still looks plastered in make-up!

Those screens are the deleted ones. The ones which are still on that post have all effects on.

There is additional foliage, particles, full-screen and water effects in the beta version, all of which were toned down before release (most likely to improve frame-rate, especially for the consoles).

On PC, you can turn some of these additional placements back on in your registry (there is not an option available to do so in the game) :tmb:

However, most of those screens come from the promotional form of TRL for Xbox 360 only. You can't get the PC version to look exactly as it did.

Interesting. I wonder what extra effects can be turned on.

That was the thread I tried to find before I started this one. :eek:

I've always had this strange feeling that none of my TR games ever looked as good as they look on console versions & promo screenshots. :p

^ Understandable. Underworld's first set were heavily edited (look at the hair ffs!!) :p

That's because they're designed for consoles not PC gaming!

Normally there're no huge diffirences between console and pc versions of games. I think this diffirence is mostly considerable on TR games! ;)

The Xbox 360 version is prettier than the PC next-gen, yes. But not as pretty as these pictures.
I think these from an early version, the lighting looks brighter, and warmer than in the final version.
And the water in the first pics looks soo amazing...:( and wow, Lara's hair is really detailed...

My 360 version looks almost the same but you're right the game does look better in terms of lightning.

Hmmm. I wonder how it'll look when I get a HDTV.
