Will some changes like these be possible in a future revision?

- TR1 & 2ís shotgun (I never liked TR3ís shotgun design)
- The beta sprinting animation
- The beta sound effect for the pistols firing or even TR2ís pistol sound effect since itís used in the cutscenes?
- TR5ís ability to flip out of crawl spaces?

All of your requests involve editing the level files individually, and main.sfx. this tomb3 overhaul doesnt involve changes to the level files.

1. You could replace the tr3 shotgun mesh with TR1s - again on each level file (tedious)
2. You could extract the beta sprint animation and replace it into the level files, also very tedious
3. A few tools out there to edit contents of main.sfx (tr3s entire sound effect base) not so tedious as youd only need to edit it once.
4. I imagine the crawlspace flip would not be able to be back ported to tr3 (I could be wrong)
Even so, youd have to edit each level file.

I have noticed that the object flickering problem of TR3 was reduced notably I know it makes no difference on the original game, but to us, level builders, this is a dream come true. Since it's not being listed on the improovements, I thought I should mention it Thanks a lot Woops!

There's a mod for the shotgun already. I also changes the MP5 to the M16. The mod is made by Eddy. I've played with that mod for a while. The only downside is that certain textures glitch on the M16 and on the environment (some animated textures freeze or they become invisible)

Here's a video preview. The download link is in the video's description: https://youtu.be/bP-sx815cz8

One thing I'd like to see would be the pickup display altered so you're seeing the item from slightly above, as in the inventory. At the moment items like keys spin at a really ugly angle, so you can't even tell what you're looking at. I understand this may be impossible, perhaps even the reason they removed the feature in the first place, but it would be awesome if it could be looked into somewhere down the line (though I imagine it'd be low-priority)

It reminds me of bad TRLE games from 2004.

That’s really cool, probably because of the doubled amount of vertices/polys that can be drawn at a time!

@Teeth I’ll look into it, ty

I've created a new release of the config tool, which contains a 32-bit build. Could you try this out? Hopefully it will run on your system.

Hello, lahm86. Thank you very much for your kind help. I can confirm it now runs in both vintage and modern Windows.

Something minor I've always noticed in both the pc and ps1 versions, but never really thought about until recently. Is it me or does the lighting on Lara at the start of Nevada Desert and Coastal village seem odd. These are the only 2 places in the game that I've noticed where lighting changes are instant rather than gradual, and returning to the starting spots does not return her to the look she had at the start. It's probably an issue with the levels themselves, but I'm probably just some raving lunatic spewing nonsense without knowing anything.
