BLOCKS FOR TOMB RAIDER
following information and downloadable media
refers to an exclusive release by tombraiderchronicles.com
for Tomb Raider Custom Level Editor users,
specifically the inclusion of a movable
block into all WAD files, an object previously
absent from Core Designs Level Editor application.
While the release of the Tomb Raider level
editor marked a new era in the continued
development of Tomb Raider, the movable
block which featured in many official Core
Design levels was omitted. This object has
now been painstakingly created and inserted
into all WADS released with the custom level
editor and are now available to download
exclusively from tombraiderchronicles.com
Level designers are invited to download
exclusive movable block tutorials which
concisely show how the object can be placed
into any level, as well as all associated
- Contains a "tut1.tr4" file that you can
place in your trle\data folder (after temporarily
renaming the existing file to preserve it)
and then play the Tutorial level with a
set of movable blocks that will allow access
to a hidden room inside the "Playable Tutorial
Level." In the beginning of the level, after
you pass through the first set of large
double doors, bear to the right side of
the column to where there's a movable block
in the wall on your right. There's a series
of 3 blocks to push before you reach the
secret room. Exit the far end of this room
and you'll find yourself in a different
place in the Tutorial that you'll probably
recognize right off.
- A "must have" text tutorial that explains
how to use the StrPix2 and TRwest programs
to create new wads or how to use them to
modify existing wads so that they will include
the "Moving Block" object. Also contains
some critical information that you won't
want to miss.
- A set of wad files that contain only the
necessary objects to include Lara in a custom
level. Use this as a starter and then use
the TRwest program to add more objects.
When you have all of the desired objects
for your custom level, you can save this
out as a new wad. You can still add or remove
objects at any time. The Tutorial will go
into greater detail on the uses of these
wad files. BE SURE TO DOWNLOAD THIS FILE
AS IT WILL ALSO BE USED IN UPCOMING TUTORIALS!
- A set of wad files identical to the "Starter"
wad files above except these contain the
"Movable Block" object. You will find a
"PUSHABLE_OBJECT5" in the list of objects.
This is the "Movable Block." Use these files
to add the "Movable Block" to levels that
you've already created. There is also a
"Block.jpg" image that will be used in a
section of the Tutorial that deals with
changing the textures on the Movable Blocks.
The Tutorial will go into greater detail
on the uses of these wad files. BE SURE
