About this mod

Thanks to mariokart64n, this game now has a working model exporter to import new playable characters into the game. With this mod you will be able to play as Lara Croft from Tomb Raider: Anniversary. Facial animations included!

Permissions and credits
Instructions:

Inside the archive you will find a "Char" and "Maps" folder. All you have to do is to copy and paste them into your "Data" folder, located into your directory of the game.

To play as the new character for the whole game, you need to copy-paste LARA.CHR for 4 times and rename the others in LARAD, LARAC1, LARAC2, LARAS. I didn't do that myself to make the mod size smaller.


MAKE A BACKUP OF THE "MAPS" FOLDER BEFORE INSTALLING THE MOD! OTHERWISE YOU WILL HAVE JACKED FACIAL ANIMATIONS WHEN YOU WILL GET BACK TO PLAY AS STANDARD LARA!

You don't need to make a backup of the Char folder since the game doesn't even have that folder when you install it. Basically what the Char file does is that you can place .CHR files inside it (Character files) and the game will read those files instead of the ones in the level files. This is a great thing as this will allow you to change characters as much as you want without the need to unpack-repack the level files everytime.

On the other hand we have the .TMT files. .TMT files are used to store morph targets (aka facial animations) and they will need to be repacked into the level files, thus why the archive includes a Maps/Cutscene folder.

While playing with the mod and watching cutscenes you will notice that Lara penetrates through certain object and/or has weird movements. This happens because the model fully uses custom bones positions to keep her body proportions the same as the original model without tweaking it too much. Some people might prefer to fully tweak their model to match the one they're replacing but I personally always prefer having the original body proportions (when and if possible, of course).

This is everything. Enjoy!
