I finally got around to starting my re-play of TR5 and trying out this awesome new patch.

I am LOVING everything, and it's truly an amazing experience. Thank you Troye; we are so blessed to have you!

lastly, I hope this project allows people to have a better experience, and enjoy their TR5 playthroughs!

Happy raiding!
This is really confusing. At first I thought only the .dll file had to go in, because otherwise why is there a .dll download only if you need PCTomb5.exe? Then when I replaced the .dll and PCTomb5.exe into the ...x86 > Core Design > TR5 folder, replacing the existing one and ensuring the new .dll is there, and the game doesn't open. Also, installation instructions on the DL page would be super helpful, with very, very simple installation instructions for people with snot for brains like me.

I thought it was already explained here (or there). The .dll only version is for if you already downloaded a previous version with an exe. In other words, it's just there for convenience. As for the game not starting up, I have no idea. I'd say rerun the setup, but that probably won't work.

Nice! Thank you so much for this. Literally almost nobody care for Chronicles, unfortunately.

Maybe who knows in a near future it will be possible for us to mod Chronicles with WADMerger and TRView too.

Not explained. Plus, installation instructions are only on this thread. It should be somewhere on the github page so people don't have to come to TRF.

Still doesn't open. Assuming the file path "C:\Program Files (x86)\Core Design\Tomb Raider Chronicles" is the correct one. =/

I've been meaning to ask, as well: would you consider changing the mid-crawlspace roll animation, if at all possible?

Lara ends the roll in a position that seems to be a beta leftover, with her right arm resting on her knee, which immediately snaps to the retail crouching animation.

There are fixes for this on TRSearch, but I don't know how applicable they are for TRC, is the thing.
hi, thank you for your feedback
I took the ammo counter position from TR3 PSX, it stays for now, I will make it customizable in the future, just not now
As for the animation, it's in the level file, not much I can do about it at this point

Kirishima is right, exe + dll for first time, only dll for updates.

if you don't have anything useful to say you really don't have to say anything. If you don't care about TRC then why are you posting in this thread.

any path should work yeah, does it say anything when you try to open it? or just simply not open?
simple steps would be:
-download the .exe+.dll package
-unzip the package using your favorite file unpacker (I use 7zip)
-copy the .exe and the .dll files into your TRC installation folder, when prompted to overwrite the exe, do so.

As Kirishima suggested, have you tried running the setup?
Are you using the Steam version?
Are you on windows 10? 11? 7?
Last question, can you run original chronicles without the patch?

To make the github link more sharable, it might be useful to put instructions on github, that way people will know what to do without having to find this thread on TRF to seek out one sentence from the bottom of the OP. I mean this respectfully.

I had followed those steps.

The game opens fine on the original .exe. The setup also does not open. I'm on Windows 10, and using the disc version.

Indeed, Woops did a great job with Tomb5 and when I purchase Chronicles again, I will play with his DLL

(I understood the post completely wrong so had to edit.)
