Thanks.
Hi,

Sometimes you can press Ctrl + F to search "The FAQ", which can be found in the second post of this thread. "FAQ" stands for "Frequently Asked Questions." In this case, you could have also pressed Ctrl + F and typed "Cleaner".

To trigger the Cleaner, you must pick up both Werner's Walking Stick and a new item called Fax from Carvier to Von Croy, found near Werner's computers. Check carefully for a flashing sparkle. Remember to pick up the Rigg 09 before engaging the assassin.

I am replaying this, yet again, and yes - This is what 2003 AOD should have been. This is the proof that if Core had more than 6 months to a Christmas release, the reception was completely different.

Just some screenshots of an earlier version of the first level with proper lighting and fixed textures. I found the lighting files that can be opened in the level editor for a slightly earlier version of this level so it should be mostly authentic

I will probably release this, the castle I showed earlier and a developer test level for people to mess around with (with more coming in the future), just keep in mind that they won't be fully playable like I mentioned before and this isn't a part of the actual mod itself.

Hello.

1. Any way to have Lara rotate with the mouse / to stand and face toward the direction the camera is looking at? Tried both patchers but no luck.
EDIT: Just realized that non-patched game does work that way, although janky. Any love for us keyboard+mouse users?

2. Camera-relative controls needs to be switched to after every game restart. Would be great if that persisted.
EDIT: Exe changelog says it can be done via Multithreading option in Launcher Settings, but I can't find that option in there.

3. Trying to play the 4 FMVs of RP v1.2.1 from in-game results in Unknown File message. They do play fine in VLC Player though.
EDIT: Re-encoded the files and now they play fine in-game. Do the ones included in RP v1.2.1 play fine in-game for other people?
Also it seems that "Developer Interviews" points to MAKINGOF.MPG, while "Making of" points to MOVIE.MPG.

4. Is there a custom TGA font file available that makes subtitles/prompts less plain-looking?
EDIT: The one included with Multi-Patcher is just higher resolution, and also letters in-game get cut off from the top slighty. Likely requires repositioning.

This looks amazing, I really hope you release this soon. I can't wait to explore it myself! Pretty amazing that a beta map from nearly 20 years ago can resurface like this

Hello! Welcome to Restoration Project.

To be clear, you're asking if a feature can be restored to:
A. Rotate Lara in Tank Controls with the mouse, and/or
B. Have Lara look toward the camera's direction? (I'm guessing for Look Mode?)

I think that this feature was removed to make way for Camera-relative controls, but I don't know for sure. Reborn would be a better one to ask, but my gut instinct is that is why it was removed. I think if you hold the Look key even on Tank Control mode, you can use the mouse to Look as long as the Look key is held.

So, the multithreading option has been removed. To find this, you open the Launcher and:
SETTINGS > General > Look in the upper right for a checkbox that says "Cam - Relative". Tick that and it'll be on.

The FMVs played fine for me, but I installed LAV Filters.

There isn't one right now, but maybe someone will make one in the future? That's sort of out of the scope of the mod, but I appreciate your enthusiasm.
