Not sure how useful that will be but maybe it will help somebody.

The fact is TR2 installed from original PC discs and although in my case updated to run launch without a CD ran perfectly on 2003 Dell Windows XP 32bit Pentium 3 laptop with a just in spec GPU and also now runs on a Windows 7 64bit desktop i3 4th generation with onboard HD graphics.

Of course the TR general patching tool was used.

Never had any old TR series install problems using the original discs. Only TR I've had any performance problems with is TR1 which doesn't run quite as smoothly as TR2 - TR5 do. But it still plays very well.

I get why Core put that back then, but it looks stupid to say that even a couple of years later after TR2 was released for laptops even in the year 2000

I love seeing old performance specs like these.

I vividly remember owning a 386, then a 486 and eventually in my teens a Pentium 90 PC. Now we'r playing with power!

During those times, my heart would frequently sink when I turned a PC game box or a Demo Disc over to look at the specs and my poor old machines frequently couldn't play them.

It's also odd to see revisionist history where people say game X or Y looked bad at the time or wasn't demanding on PC / Consoles, where they were actually state of the art games and for a lot of people, they couldn't afford to play them.
