    My understanding is that making Tomb Raider 2 work is as trivial as putting the Tomb Raider 2 DATA folder in the OpenLara directory instead of the Tomb Raider 1 DATA folder. It should just work.

    The issue is having multiple Tomb Raider directories at the same time - this is not possible right now. Also, OpenLara will always search for game files in /switch/OpenLara/ so simply putting the application and alternate DATA folder in a separate directory also does not work. It is apparently trivial to edit this in the source, however.

    edit: @sj33 figured it out - and yes its really as trivial as that. :) (Read a bit in the official thread, an it soon became clear, that TR2 and TR3 support are already backed in. :) )

    Ok, getting TR2 to work is as easy as copy/pasting all the TR2 content (gog.com install folder) into the Openlara folder, with only the readme.txt, the OpenLara.nro and the OpenLara.nacp present in the folder.

    Thats it.

    edit: TR2 and TR3 will not be finishable that way. At least currently.

    The controls are the same as TR1, which means, that "sprint" or "duck" is missing, also if you try to grab onto a "climbable surface" in TR2, nothing happens. :)

    So the levels load, but the actions arent there yet. :) They will be in the future though if the project continues being developed on. :)

    What kind of emulator is this ?. Can I adapt another Video Game related to the Engine where the Tomb Raider works? I think it's WebGL, could I run WebGL from Unity, Stencyl, and others?

    Its an open source reimplementation of the the Tomb Raider engine. Currently it has to be adapted to every game you'd want to run with it. Its partly there with TR2 and TR3 because the developer is working on implementing those.

    Start at the developers github, and go from there. :) There is a very detailed reverse engineering wiki of the Tombraider data formats (including headers, and break down, whiche files contain uncompressed wav files stitched together with a custom header) online as well (google tomb raider rosetta stone), so this engine is probably very "custom fit" at this point. :)

    As far as how the dev implemented webgl in the switch version, I don't know.

    Interesting. I will investigate when I have free time ... I want to be able to run my Unity games at least in WebGL.

    Couldn't get it work :/ the one form the archive organization
    nvm got it working =)
    It's the first time I play the game, the crouch and dash actions doesn't work? I've tried mapping in different buttons but nothing happens. This port is amazing runs butter smooth, been playing with high quality ogg and haven't experienced choppiness, neither in FMV.

    Can someone please help me with the audio file directories for this?
    I have all the OGG tracks renamed and in openlara/audio/1, all RPL videos in openlara/FMV and the rest of the files in openlara/DATA.

    The game runs fine. The videos, levels and sound effects seems to be working.
    But I cannot get the soundtrack/music to play.
    I realise that there can be separate directories such as audio/2 and level/2 etc... but there is no information about what specific files go in those locations.

    Thanks

    How do you have the audio tracks named? There needs to be a leading zero in the track number i.e. track_02.ogg not track_2.ogg

    How is the TR2/tr3 implementation going along? I would love to read more about the technical difficulties that are mastered here. Best wishes to the hard working dev. Great project!

    Is there a way to zoom the output? I have a 3D-TV and like to try stereo. But it seems painful for the eyes atm, assume I need a zoom to fill the width of the TV. The TV does not have such setting :-(

    Could it be I was looking at the wrong github page? It shows Jan 11 for me.
