There are so many wonderful great moments in Tomb Raider, far too many to count, but we want to remember why we do and what made certain sequences and adventures special to each one of us personally. This is the chance to bring together fans of Lara that have been with her through the games' infancy and the ones she's created today.
This contest is about the very things that make Tomb Raider special. So this begs to question: What makes Tomb Raider so important to every one of us? What has made the game unique? What makes us keep running back to Lara? So we
Gerard-- a life in quotes (part 1)"There’s angst but it’s different. I think we’re rebelling now as a rock band. We’re trying to keep it pure, but we’re not playing victims anymore. We’ve realized that we’re one of the youngest bands at our size. So there’s a responsibility that comes with that, whether it’s to fans or to outside listeners who aren’t fans, to be the greatest American rock band. That was the goal. And it took a while to get there, but we’re just being the best My Chemical Romance that we can be."Gerard-- a life in quotes (part 1)3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Interview with the creative director of TR!Dear raiders!Interview with the creative director of TR!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
We have had the honor of participating in an interview with Noah Hughes, the creative director of TR, on a Tomb Raider event in Dubai this year!
Our dear admin Ahmad ( Orphen5 ) filmed this video in cooperation with Reno ( LaraCroftTheRaider.com ) who was asking Noah questions that every fan is surely wondering about. A lot has been revealed about the new game already, but here is some more info about elements of the game that fans (old and new) are curious about!
The video is 19 minutes long so here's just a basic transcript of the interview (if you want to hear all the additional details that the guys discussed, watch the entire thing! )
Lara is back!
This time around we are telling Lara's origin story, as most of the fans know , but part of that is trying to bring lara back to the forefront as a game

stevo505: Will we ever see some behind the scenes content, such as motion-capture and voice-recording sessions?
Karl: Yes, we intend to show lots of behind the scenes content, but are working to ensure that it isn’t delivered in the same old vein as developer diaries. We’re going to do something very special in not-so-distant future, although I don’t want to give it away right now.
aragorn2: The game will have any stealth system or it will be more action style?
Karl: We’re working very hard to ensure our combat system has a variety of different play

Hey dear watchers,
Here's a new XPS/ XNALara version. This time it has Temple of Osiris Lara models added with their original bone weights.
They are meant to be in original state, which is why some things like face posing may not be possible (as the ingame version doesn't have facial bones).

Hey dear watchers!
Long time no new version of XPS i see. But don't worry here's a new one!
This is also a kind of needed update for evryone using the previous versions since they will expire tommorrow...
Expire? What does that mean?
- It means that your version of XPS will not start anymore. You will get a error message on startup.
But i liked my version, why upgrade?
- New features have been added and old ones are still working! I tested the version myself and saw nothing that doesn't work anymore.
Wait, you said 'New Features'?
- Yepp! Here they are:
- > No expiration date anymore. This program will work as long as you want it to!
- > Save as 'old Generic_Item' as an option is now available under 'Modify> Save Generic_Item'. Old Generic Item just means that these exported models will also work in XNALara. This works most of the times but not when

What functionality of XPS/XNALara/GLLara you like? - What should be changed?
Your opinion is needed.
Designate what bothers you and what you like. Then it would be changed.
Our group will make a statement at any point. And later we append a list to show what changes will be implemented.
Thanks in advance.

What is XNALara/XPS
XNALara is a real time posing and rendering program written by Dusan Pavlicek and had been released for the first time on February, 20, 2009 on tombraiderforums.com.
Dusan, the creator of XNALara, managed to extract Lara Croft's model from the game Tomb Raider Underworld (TRU), converted it for his program, using the Microsoft XNA framework, and shared it, letting people play with it and create art.

The easy way to do it is to change the render group of the mesh you wanna make glow to 30 or 31(if you want to use alpha channel)
You need only 3 textures for this group
short example for the mesh.ascii:
30_display (mesh name..can be whatever you want.. with render group 30 assigned)
1 # uv layers
3 # texture
display_d.png (diffuse map)
0 # uv layer index
display_n.png (normal map)
0 # uv layer index
display_e.png (emission map, pretty similar to the specular map texture but coloured)
0 # uv layer index
(lighter will be the emission texture, more will shine trough darkness but in a "flat" way )
after that..activate bloom effect and you'll see the m

Hello fellow raiders! It's about time we had another competition around here. So we bring you:
Tomb Raider: REINVENTED
Many of you have played all of the Tomb Raider games, some have played a few, or even just one. However, we took a vote last week of what your favorite Tomb Raider game is of all time. The winner is Tomb Raider II: Starring Lara Croft! Who couldn't love Tomb Raider II? The t-rexes, the dragon, the running the boat into water mines, the swimming away from great white sharks, fighting with Tibetan monks, Tomb Raider II, is dear to many of our hearts.
We want you to reinvent the Tomb Raider II cover. What would it look like if you designed it? You must use the same pose, the pose cannot be changed or differ from the original. Now that doesn't mean Lara has to be the few polygons she used to be, just the pose. Since there is no background to the original cover, we will be allowing a background to be added into the competition pie

Eccoci qua.. Il nuovo XPS alla versione 10.8.8 apporta alcune migliorie dal punto di vista del realismo
e risolve alcuni, a volte fastidiosi, messaggi di avviso.. Di seguito le novitą:
::: REAL BUMP :: :
A quanto mi č stato detto XPS/XNALARA non produce di suo un effetto BUMP reale dal momento che spostando le
luci l'effetto bump rimane immutato non proiettando bene o almeno non correttamente l'effetto rilievo..
ma finora ha utilizzato un sistema illusorio giocando sulla creazione di ombre che dessero l'aspetto dell'effetto "rilievo"
o bump che dir si voglia.. (se dico qualche cavolata i boss mi correggano..)
In questa versione aggiornata da un nuovo promettente programmatore: :iconzcochrane:
č stato aggiunto un nuovo shader che si occupa della gestione del BUMP MAPPING in maniera
piu' realistica e simile a quella gia' utilizzata in tutti gli altri software e giochi 3D.
