rules of no loads no meds on tomb raider 1.

  • No glitches are allowed (Glitchless) This includes corner bugging, QWOPs, jumping through the corner of blocks and using a swan-dive to survive a fall that would normally kill Lara. Also the Doppleganger glitch where the Doppleganger either doesn’t spawn or when she gets stuck in a block, which is not the players fault means that they can reload the game. (See below in frequently asked questions)
  • No medipacks are allowed (Health kits)
  • You cannot load the game at any point in the game. You have to get through the game from start to finish.
  • FMVS can be skipped but unskippable cutscenes that become skippable with hacking tools are prohibited
  • Using weapon cheats and level skip cheats are prohibited
  • Long breaks may be taken during this challenge but as long as it’s shown that no tampering has happened to the game during the break.
  • Saving is allowed. It is advised that you save at the start of each level in case an accidental glitch occurs. This is the only time a reload is allowed.

Frequently asked questions:

How do i get tomb raider 1 running properly on pc?

Tomb Raider 1 was made for DOS and there is currently no official Windows version available. Luckily thanks to Lara’s loyal fans we have a fanmade patch that allows you to run Tomb Raider 1 without needing a DOS emulator. You can download the patch called TombATI here.

What happens if I accidentally glitch in the game?

It depends on the glitch. If you accidentally corner bug or jump through a block you can normally get back. If you accidentally glitch in this way please undo the progress you made with this glitch and show that you can do this properly without the use of the glitch that occurred. If you cannot undo the glitch you have done then please reload the game. This is the only time that a reload is allowed. The load needs to be a previous save in the same level and the save needs to have been done in the same challenge attempt. If you have a save from a previous level or from another attempt, then you may not use it and you will have to restart the challenge. I recommend saving at the start of each level to stop this from happening.

What is the doppleganger glitch?

The doppleganger glitch is when the doppleganger doesn’t appear or when the doppleganger gets stuck inside a block and then remains motionless. There are two ways to resolve this. The first way is to jump on the two slopes that lead into the room. (They are located on each side of the room and one of them is the one used to access this room)

The second way is to save the game and reload. Please only do this as a last resort.
