Frequently asked questions:

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

Tomb Raider 1+ Unfinished Business 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.
