On a related note, take a look at the Mission Prep page which is seen between levels. The image of the manor library is stretched because there is only a 4:3 version. No widescreen version exists.



I've edited the texture to add vertical black bars to both sides of the image. This is called the pillarbox effect. The library image is now scaled correctly on widescreen display.

I didnt know this was a glitch! It always looked perfectly fine to me!

Update:

A few weeks ago Caesum raised the issue of Lara's hair looking like a pixelated mess so I wanted to try and tackle this.

[IMG ]https://64.media.tumblr.com/a65d1bfba27b528520880c69ad0c9b73/42c146316619711a-4b/s1280x1920/6a73bf7b7c23b8d14e1179c2d356e8799eb9e15e.png[/IMG]

The pixelated look of Lara's hair is now greatly reduced. This was done by applying gaussian blur effect to the hair texture. All Lara models have been updated with this change, but not Amanda since I don't see any issues on her.
Yes all the way to this. Always felt the way her hair was so "streaky" looked a little weird compared to how detailed everything else is. This edit looks so much better.

I'm loving these improvements. They really make everything look more polished Always preferred the look of the old-gen/PS2 version of the game. Next gen features looked too out of place and plastic. Anniversary did a better job with the next-gen look on consoles.

Especially love what you did with her hair and the vines. Those are things that have always bothered me a bit. I hope someday we'll be able to edit meshes in Legend and Anniversary as the models are mirrored heavily and asymmetry really adds to making things look more organic.

Personally I noticed it before creating this thread but completely forgot about it until later on. (Edit: I mean to say it's not a very noticable issue.)

Thank you. The hair texture have very thin strands which is why it looks pixely on Lara's head when viewing her model from a distance.

I'm with you on the preference for old gen Legend. The deal-breaker for me is the fact that old gen looks like a cartoon, which I rather like, and it's also consistent with the cartoon style of Anniversary.

It would be great if it becomes possible to edit the meshes - the first thing I would like to see addressed is Lara's bewildering ponytail physics.

her ponytail physics are fine to me... oh hang on.

so, a problem with TR:L and TR:A is you need to force vsync on via your gfx card, or else hair (And other similar objects that "flow" with movement) won't react properly and just blow straight back at the slightest movement. it's weird

Yup it's like Lara is in a wind tunnel every time she moves with vsync off. I don't mind using vysnc btw, I was thinking it's the way Lara's ponytail tries to shake free (clipping?) rather than move fluidly with the rest of her model during cutscenes. Reunion with Amanda is one of the cutscenes I can recall this happening.

Exactly, having VSync Off on high framerates will lead to this:

Default Update 1.5

Hi again, another small change and it's King Arthur. This update resolves texture issues that are visible during "The Final Piece" cutscene.


  • Vertical split down the face, just like the Anniversary issues, is now gone.
  • Removed the light coloured edge at the side of the face (new: and top of the face).
  • The split down the middle of the chest armour is also removed.

Must be all the ghosts tugging at Lara's hair, she does spend a lot of time in the tombs after all.
