What works

The game starts.
It does allow to move over menu.
It does allow to start single-player.
It does allow to config graphics and controls.

What does not

Because of low performance, I set everything in low graphics.


The game seems to autoinstall directx9 and vcrun 2005 (or 2008 not sure).
But it also requires dotnet3.5 (and it doesnt say it).

To make it run I did this:
in a clean wineprefix
choose Wine 3.16 (32bit prefix)
set to Windows 7 (it should be)
install through winetricks dxfull, vcrun 2005, vcrun 2008, AND dotnet3.5 (it also auto-installs 2.0, 3.0, 3.0sp1)

ALSO, in the steam app, over Lara croft, properties, general, "set launch options" i put this:

Maybe all of this it is not required, but, that is how I make it run

What was not tested

Multiplayer game.
Complete the game in single mode.

Additional Comments

As I said, maybe it is my old computer (dual core e5300, 4gb, 9500gt), but I set everything to low graphics.
It does run but it is a little...buggy... or laggy... maybe it is that antialiasing is off, not sure.
