[QUOTE=mizuno_suisei;8411745]Kasumi is saying (I believe)

You need to put the tomb4 project files, in Steams TR4 folder. Kinda tricking steam into launching the tomb4 project (as if the game is untouched)

The reason for this I believe- I've never actually used Steam, but I've heard as of somewhat recent, Steam now has an integrated control fix thing for these problems now! Classic TR games use Dinput natively which- isn't good on new controllers as almost are xinput. Steam has apparently fixed this middle man issue now, where for the longest time people needed to use DS4Windows or Joy2Key to bypass it - this is all word of mouth from some friends. Can't confirm 100% Steams controller change.

EDIT; simultaneous reply with Kasumi :vlol: nice[/QUOTE]

You can move files, but also just "Add Non-Steam game to library" that lets you use any application with Steam overlay and Controller option.

It's doing same thing as Joy2Key but per-game and you can download and save configs from community, i.e. I didn't need to set it up for TR1-3, and only change flare binding for 4.

It's confusing but there are guides online and if people keep having issues with gamepads I can make a video guide.

Thankyou for the extra details :) I trouble shoot classic tr numerous times a week :vlol:

J'ai bien Tomb4, j'ai ouvert directement "exetomb4" et ça à fonctionné ! mais une fois retouné dessus (après avoir quitté steam et éteint mon pc) la manette sur le jeu ne répond plus.

J'avais un autre problème quand ça avait fonctionné, la touche A et B se confondait entre elle.

Thank you for your service! :wve:

Steam just launches the .exe in the games directory, even if you modify or replace them, every tombproject works out of the box... except tomb1main where you have to rename the launcher into dosbox.exe.

But you can also launch non-Steam games through Steam by simply adding their .exes, they will miss the ID (which you can fake with a text file), but it will work for gamepads, overlay, screenshots etc. regardless.

So yeah, any tomb4.exe will work for Steam, as long as it's in the same folder, so you can just put Level Editor or Times Exclusive level into TLR main directory and Steam will see it as main game, but it's a messy solution.

Unfortunately you have to launch game through Steam every time for controller to work. You can use Steam shortcut or launch the whole client, doesn't matter.

For buttons Swapped, try Controller Layout (don't know how it's in French) and try different config or change it yourself. It needs a bit of trial and error. I had to swap buttons in Angel of Darkness as jump there is X but I have muscle memory.

Hi, although I always planed to look at this project carefully, I haven't started. :D Just two questions.
(1) Do you think it's possible (with the knowledge of the decompilation) to write a more comprehensive savegame editor? I mean more comprehensive than before.
(2) Where is Lara's HP in the savegame file? I plan to make a survey of the no-scratch play techniques, but couldn't find Lara's exact HP. :(

^ Oh, I just come to say that I have found a solution. Thanks for everyone who's trying to help me. :hug:

Is it possible to use this patch along with Peixoto patch? Each time I try to open the game, it crashes after the Eidos FMV cutscene.

I'm using the latest Tomb4 patch and the latest Peixoto patch.

Really stupid question but can this be used in conjunction with TRLE (TR4 engine) or does it only work for the retail TR4.

So if we wanted to make TR4 levels using TRLE we could make use of these improvements?

I found a bug in Citadel Gate:

When I pick up the Nitrous Oxide Cannister, the textures looks white.

igor32 07-01-24 18:41

Some bugs I got:

> ropes from far view turns white

> the dog head after getting it killed does not fade while despawning

edit:

> City of the dead locust jar doesn't get destroyed if shoot

> Enemies that despawn when killed will only despawn if it's in your LoS

> Some enemies got dumber (?) during the mastabas there was a room with mummies and bats, but they all concentrated in a ramp, totally ignoring me, I don't recall this happening in the previous replays.

Also, could this patch get a install kit treatment like tr1/tr3?
