Alosaur? I assume that means Allosaurus...



Which makes me wonder, is the T-Rex in TR1 ever actually referred to as such in the game code? I know it is in tools like Wadmerger but those were written by fans years later.

Maybe it has it been an Allosaurus all this time and we just assumed 'T-Rex'? The general look and size matches.

I had the exact same thought. Although, I suspect it was an Allosaurus only in TR1.

The big lizards in TR2 onwards, were probably all intended to be T-Rexes - since that's how the TR1 creature was interpreted, I imagine the idea stuck and they just went with it.

Kinda like how Larsen's name became Larson after TR1, because of a strategy guide misprint.

Is there a 3d model of the snake in the files? Would be cool if someone who is familiar with the engine can explain how they did Lara's hair, the diagonal walls, etc, and how things changed to the final version.

Those snake looking textures in the texture set b122251 posted from the actual level would indicate so. There are a few SNAKE files there as well.

EDIT: In the meantime, I whipped this up for the modding community.

These are retextured versions of Geckokid's Mobile Snake, and the TR3 Nevada snake. More information in the included Readme.txt file.
Imagine Lara falling into a nest of these, it's a shame they didn't end up using snakes in the final game.

I remember seeing this early tech demo back in the day, though pixilated and short. It's cool to see it come to life finally! We've had a lot of luck with unreleased content coming to fruition lately

I honestly don't know how I feel about that, but, whatever.
I had the same thought. Chris did mention he was kicking himself though.
