Good synopsys Stewart !!!

I think I'm on the very lowest edge of capability to run the game. I bought an extra 1G memory, but my mutha f board won't take it. Is there a DIMM parallel extension card out there ???

Also, my ATI X1600 isn't on their list, and I'm at least 50 watts over my 300 watt PS...

I'm saving up for a new 'puter. The way I did it last time, was to get the case, with MB, CPU, PS, fans, checked out thru POST, and plugged all my old cards & drives into it, but I think there's a new bus out there, that replaces the IDE - haven't really looked into it... still going to keep XP, until SP 3 or so comes out for Vista - LOL

It was a fantastic game. for the first time since tr5 I really feelt like playing something that was at least close to a tr game :D

I'm still missing the relic in the mansion...and one treasure (which I can see but not grab :angry: ) in the level with the hammers.

Still not being able to get access to the extra material (storyboards) yet :|

I'm playing on the xbox btw...what was that all talk about getting special levels on the xbox only? Something you can download later on maybe?
Currently playing: Babylon Is Fallen

I actually managed to get all but 4 relics on the first pass, missing about 4 artifacts from each level. The Mansion was really easy, i got all the artifacts and the relic :)

I'll be going back for them all, I love the ability to load any level, but wish i could easly restart a level i'm currently in.

For me, i'm not too excited about re-playing it just for secrets. Plus i'm still living the joys of having an Xbox and we're playing something else at the mo :D

By the way, anyone got the TRU textures yet? I can't wait to see them in our custom levels :2thumbsup:
