Tomb Raider III: Adventures of Lara Croft

Tomb Raider III: Adventures of Lara Croft 

  • I'm using SuSE Linux 8.2 and the wine version 20030115. I just installed the game and it worked. The desktop is set "unmanaged" in the config file. I had to cancel the intro through pressing ESC. If I Try to load a saved game the graphics don't work all right. If you load it again, it works.

What works

Everything, as long as configure Wine in "graphics" tab. Default is "Vertex shader: Hardware," which starts a game with all textures ghostly gray. Instead set this to "Vertex shader: None." Then everything works.

What does not

Everything works: controls, sound, setup.


What was not tested

I mostly tested the TR3 packages at This is a site with all things Tomb Raider, including custom levels for TR2, TR3,  and TR4. The TR3 levels are self-contained--just download them, unzip, and play. Some of the highly rated TR3 levels are "Lara Croft Returns" [16 levels], and "Lunar Apocalypse."

Additional Comments

I tested the TR3 download levels from I also tested with Puppy Linux 4.12 with Wine 1.1.7 installed. All I had to do was create a setup shell script to start the level in Wine with "tomb3.exe -setup" as parameter. In Karmic Ubuntu with Wine 1.2-rc1, I could use a "setup.bat" file with the line "tomb3.exe -setup", right click this, and choose Wine loader. With old Wine version, game runs by default. With new Wine 1.2-rc1, have to configure in graphics tab and set "Vertex shader: None." Then the textures display correctly. Admin note: rating changed to conform to the rating definitions.
