Question Cannot see health bar

As the title says, I cannot see the health bar on the Steam version of TRII. Its wide-screen and I can see the blue Windows bar but that's not a problem. The main problem is that I cannot see my health bar. Like at all. Any way to solve this?

Unfortunately, the fact that it's widescreen and you can see the blue Windows bar IS the problem...
which can be fixed using the following links from this Steam discussion about your exact issue.
But for convenience (and since the second link in that is caput) I'll also put them here with the fixed second link:

Tomb Raider 2-3-4 Widescreen Patch

The classic Tomb Raider games were designed for standard (4:3) aspect ratio monitors and TVs. This unofficial widescreen patch allows you to run Tomb Raider 2, 3 and 4 in three different aspect ratios: 16:9, 16:10 or 5:4 without the usual distortion. It works on the CD installation, as well as the GOG and Steam games.

There's also a separate patch for adjusting the distance between the camera and Lara, in case you find Lara appears too close after installing the widescreen patch.

Follow these links for more info and file downloads:

Official Eidos Tomb Raider Forums
TRLE.net Forum
Download from the patch creator's website
Download from tombraiders.net
Tomb Raider 2, 3, 4 Widescreen Patch - Advanced Version
Tomb Raider 2, 3, 4 Widescreen Patch - Old Version
The link I've highlighted is the second thing you need, I can't link it directly here because that'll cause the same issue from the Steam discussion, so just go here where the quote is from and get it there.
There should be directions, but note that this may affect all TR2/3/4 games, possibly even custom games.
In my case it's been beneficial but to be safe make backups.

I just wanted to say thanks too, because I had the window bars only over the FMVs. I could see everything in-game just fine. And it worked on the FMVs. So thanks for pointing us toward it!

Mate, this issue happened when I swapped my HDD. I just backed up the save files and reinstalled TR2 from Steam, and it fixed this issue.
