Does Tomb Raider (ver.) run on Windows 2000 ?

Windows 2000 users can now benefit from a series of exclusive patches that address several technical problems that occur when attempting to play Tomb Raider Chronicles, Tomb Raider - The Last Revelation, The Lost Artifact and Tomb Raider III on their Windows 2000 operating system. Our exclusive multi-version Tomb Raider patches were extensively tested on Microsoft Corps Windows 2000 Professional operating system with a selection of hardware profiles and video card combinations including: Matrox G Series, Creative, ATI, NVIDIA * and Diamond Multimedia.

Prior to patching, Tomb Raider Chronicles, The Last Revelation, The Lost Artifact and Tomb Raider III instantly dumped back to desktop when executed. Following the replacement of the original Tomb Raider excecutables with our modified Tomb Raider executables, we are now able to run Tomb Raider Chronicles, The Last Revelation, The Lost Artifact and Tomb Raider III using all screen resolutions and texture depths with no desktop dump. FMV movies also play seamlessly.

Windows 2000 users are invited to download our unofficial Tomb Raider patches and replace their existing executables with our newly downloaded versions. Please note, this is NOT an official release, and we are not responsible for any damage to your system applying this patch may cause. Once again was the first to develop and release exclusive Tomb Raider Windows 2000 Guides and Patches.
