^ I don't know of Win11, but WinXP to Win10 is OK.

What do you mean with og's? game options maybe?
Follow this tutorial and be sure to check "Harware acceleration" and not "Software mode"

I actually enjoy Chronicles more than TR I, III and IV. It's a fun, not overly long (and complicated) game with diverse locations... it's like a better Tomb Raider Legend.

Coincidentally - for my community I uploaded a bat file anyone can use for TRLEs or TLR. There's guides out there re shortcuts but these guides tend to assume players are PC friendly tr fans. It's almost impossible to guide someone not so PC friendly, to make the shortcut.. bat is SO much faster, even to make.

I'm sure I'm allowed to link it, as I've never seem this available online bat file to be placed alongside required tomb4s whenever you need to force setup window.

Since this is an unappreciation thread - IMHO TR 2 is better than Chronicles, TR Chronicles in certain aspects is a re-hash of TR Revelation.

Funny title... But is there anything to appreciate in chronicles?

Flawed story and unneeded sequel to the defunct engine. They should've only released TRLE and call it a day.

We can thank Eidos for that. Core intended to kill off Lara but Eido$ wanted more sadly. Also why AOD ended up failing.

The trouble is that Lara Croft is too popular and too much of a cash cow to be killed off. It's like killing the goose that laid the gold eggs.

Yeah from a business perspective, Eidos didn't want that, which to be fair, makes sense. The only problem was they wanted a Tomb Raider game year after year (a norm for PS1 franchise games back then) from Core, which is why half the Tomb Raider Team got split, I believe. One working on TR III and the other on TRIV. The latter they really wanted to make a great Tomb Raider game and at the same time, send her off from their fatigue of constantly making games.

It's such a shame because Angel of Darkness was such a great "rise from the ashes" return. Could have been anyway.
