    To be honest it looks like the CDDA wasn't ripped correctly so it's crashing the game. In earlier, closer builds the menu works perfectly fine. It's just when music is called it glitches.

    The TOMB is cut off because it's cut off in the actual file the resolution is fine. There's no point re-burning the ISO the only difference is the menus it's not worth the trouble.
    Actually the second video freezes because I pressed start in the following room (I find it interesting it actually let's me open the menu to begin with), also The fourth video allows me to pull the switch and open the door once and once only, approaching the switch again crashes the game (I find it interesting how it works once and once only)... I trust your opinion, seems a reasonable conclusion, although other things do seem off in this build. If the sound files don't work for the pause menu and inventory menu, why will it open them if you load the game at the save point? Doesn't make any sense to me really, if sound files are knackered they should be knackered no matter what. Watch video 4.

    Level skipping works fine (custom modification). But crashes are still inevitable on some levels since they freeze up when putting in keys etc.

    Ah I see, thanks! Do you know who owns the originals? Wouldn't mind owning one if they were ever for sale. I guess the only hard ppart is knowing what's original and what's not!

    Very true, although not always. Original is better, as if the dump we have did turn out to be a bad rip then it's possible content that can't be experienced now could be experienced without the image being full of errors. BH2 Beta 2 was a pirate bootleg also and that image has corrupt sectors making a lot of features not work, granted this build is not quite as interesting as BH2 Beta 2, but to have a fully working image would be nice, we never know what stage of the PSX development this build came from, and I'm sure this would make a nice cheap (ish) start to my non existant prototype collection lol. :) I like Tomb Raider beta, I find them very interesting, even if a build came along that had not been released it would be a series I would be interested in collecting. Got to start somewhere, right?

    It is sad that the dump is bad. But there is someone else who has a working copy of it on this forum and they may even be able to provide a propper dump of they want to.

    I know what stage of development this is from, it's just a September build compiled very close to the final release. There are earlier betas which are more fun to play with, since this so close to final i am going to run through some levels right now to see if there are some differences as i've only encountered 1 level difference only minor.

    Alright, i can confim it's the same beta and it's working perfectly fine no crashes at all. I can confim that the previous copy was incorrectly ripped. I've played through the first few levels and noticed only sound differences for now and 1 texture error. Nothing that interesting.

    They are not available on the Internet because the people who actually own them payed for the games with their hard earned money.
    It's their property, they can do with it whatever they are up to.

    Releasing a prototype to the public always means a huge loss in value, so those people have good reason not to share everything they have.

    I know, that's not exactly what you wanted to hear, but it's the truth...
    Sometimes people are generous enough to share their stuff for free, but most of the time you'll have to pay if you want to get pre-release builds of games.

    Yeah, life can be cruel at times...

    Edit:
    By the way, if you want the Silencer in Tomb Raider 5 so badly, I could hack you a simple GameShark code to make it available in the retail version! Let me know if you're interested! That way you could toy around with the Silencer without having to obtain that pesky TR Chronicles beta first.

    Don't know why you want the silencer, it's useless and nonfunctional.

    Don't know what you mean. Try enable it with custom cheats, i don't think there is an exact cheat on the net for the final.
