Default Tomb Raider Beta Compilation

Hi everyone. This thread is made to be a list of all publicly available Tomb Raider Beta's.
They are all in 7z format. The password is b122251.
Should you know of any other publicly available beta's, please PM me, and I'll inspect them
and add them to the list (I prefer this method to avoid double posts of the same beta).

You have to enable glide emulation since it came from the 3DFX branch

Cheers.

--------

Edit:

These are pretty much every single public demo/beta versions leaked. But you're missing two:

Tomb Raider Demo [PSX] (September 24, 1996) - SLED-00513 (City of Vilcabamba only)
Tomb Raider II Demo [PSX] (October 16, 1997) - (On multiple game discs, TR2 JPN Trial, Fighting Force/TR2 demo, TR2 standalone demo) (Venice, Wreck of Maria Doria, Tibetan Foothills)

Two variants of the Tomb Raider III Area51 demo exist... (One has dozy, one does not)

There were some others but I can't confirm if those were on public demos or leaked, I think they're my private ones I'll get back to you!

I was JUST thinking about how it'd so good to have a list of all beta versions available alongside with links to the. I'm so glad you've made this list, thank you! Oh how great it'll be to play the oldest betas, I really can't thank you enough for this!

Are there any playable early betas from Tomb Raider IV? I've seen for TR1-3 and 5(a pre-final one), but not for TRIV. Same obviously goes to TRAOD lol.

Thank you veeeeeery much, b122251 and Gh0stblade!
Though I would like to ask one thing; is it legal to do this? I'm asking this because I doubt the admins will approve this thread...
