The original Tomb Raider Level Editor (the TRLE) was released by Core in 2000. The TRLE was the Level Editor Core used to make The Last Revelation.
When installing the Tomb Raider Level Editor, select Custom Install and uncheck the DirectX7 box. If you try to install DirectX7, Windows will chuck out a serious error message due to trying to install an old version of Direct X (176Mb).

In early 2008, Paolone released a new Tomb Raider Level Editor, the Next Generation Level Editor (the NGLE).
Version is the version that does not use the TRNG engine yet, so this version can be used together with TREP.

TRNG stands for Tomb Raider Next Generation. It is a combination of NGLE (updated level editor) and the updated engine.
It has a lot more posibilities than just the TRLE or NGLE, in both graphics/effects and gameplay.
You can download it at Paolone's homepage: TRNG
Note 1:
MK4 is TRNG version
If you want to use version you have to install the "trng installer" after installing MK4.
After that you can download and install the most recent version But in order to be able to use you do need to have installed since also contains an update for NG-Center!
Note 2:
We have a whole forum section dedicated to TRNG. If you are using TRNG, it is best to your questions in there.
