That is how TR2 meshes are. As you can see on the picture i posted earlier they have multiple normals for vertexes. And TR4 meshes has them too. And there is no flat shading in game. There is only one artifact in my mesh but i don't know why...

And look on this. This looks amazing in my opinion. Just like in TR2 (fixed normals for left leg and left arm)

(don't mind the messed textures - it is because of the triangulation of the quads)
Pardon me if that was just your way of trying the doors for me.
