Ultimate Tomb Raider I Patch & FMV Deinterlacing Patch
by Arsunt and SWAT
Description by Arsunt :
Hi! My nickname is Arsunt. I am programmer and member of the Tomb Raider Russian Community. We recently released localized into Russian and revised version of the Tomb Raider I Gold. We also released an English version with lots of fixes. Among the changes is significantly improved FMV codec and new re-encoded RPL videos. You can download our game patch here. It works with both Steam and GOG versions. A full list of changes is as follows:
- Completely redesigned FMV/RPL codec. Now it has no interlace. Also it filters "dithered" pixels.
- Added remastered and re-encoded FMV with better sound and video quality.
- Added higher quality music and SFX from PSX version + extra audio tracks.
- Fixed Unfinished Business (3dfx) issue with a black screen instead of credits slideshow at the end of the game.
- Fixed problem with the secret at the last level.
- Reworked PCX images.
- Added title images for widescreen mode.
- Added our credits screen.
- Added our logo FMV.
- Added nGlide v1.05 for high resolution and widescreen mode.
- Added loader for easy configuration and launch of the game.
Authors of this patch:
- Anar K.M. (SWAT) - resources rework, installer software
- Michael Chaban (Arsunt) - reverse engineering, advanced fmv codec, programming (RPL converter, game loader)
- Suikaze Raider, b122251 - other tools and patches
Also, I want to share my deinterlacing patch with the world Tomb Raider community. It removes horizontal black lines from FMV and adds dithering filter for quality enhancement. Patch has already been applied to our game, but if you do not want to download and install the whole thing, or if you plan to create your own repack, so... take it! This patch can be applied to any executable of "Tomb Raider I" or "Tomb Raider I Gold" games even if it has already been patched or modified by any other software, such as 3dfx patch.
Here are a few examples of how the patch works:
Deinterlacing patch does not include re-encoded FMV pack, but our full game patch does.
Here is demo of re-encoded FMV:
