Okay, awesome. Really weird though that there are missing polygons. Really makes me wonder what Core did while porting the game.

If you could figure out how to add vertices

Ok, so I'm gonna install this game on win 10 for the first time. I already finished it on PS2 a bunch of times.

What patches do you guys suggest for an ultimate AoD experience?

I would suggest:

Set graphics settings to:

(Note that the screen resolution and monitor aspect and size might differ)

-Sasho's ontrols fixes/patches
-SLAYER's Ultimate Patch
-High Quality FMVs / Cut-scenes movies by Rewak
-Text Clean Up - By LateRaider
-EAX Unified Audio Fix (http://www.tombraiderforums.com/show...1&postcount=68)
-My (TRJTA's) HD Graphics Patches

EDIT: What is the PS2 version like? Is it worth playing and is it less buggy than the PC version?

^The PS2 version is a little more complete, as in there aren't any inverted faces and it has a few more effects. This video shows most of the differences:



It's nice to play just to see all the differences but IMO the PC version is still superior, especially with all the fixes we got lately. My main complaint about the PS2 version are the controls. It's sort of a mixture between old and new but it just doesn't feel right. When you push the stick right for example, she first slowly turns around and then starts running instead of immediately just starting to run like in newer games. It can be quite frustrating especially in tight areas.

Thank You! I will try it today I will post the feedback after the install.

The PS2 version is ok. I believe that with all these patches de PC version is superior...

on ps2, when she's shimmying on a ledge, her hands open and close, i wonder if there's any way to make that happen on PC too.

Oh really? Its a shame that a lot of these small things somehow got lost when the game was ported to the pc. It really shows what little time Core had.

PC version has a little bit more detail apparently(like more objects in Louvre) so it's possible that the level meshes were altered and graphical bugs are the result of this.

Can anyone help me in how to install the patches?

I'm a total noob at this. For example, what version of Sasho contros/fixes patches should I install?
