I was amazed at how well my very dated ATi 9800 Pro handled the next gen graphics in Tomb Raider: Legend. Take a look at my screenshots. The shadows are a bit blocky, but the game is still playable at 1024 x 768 resolution and it looks gorgeous. I'll post more screenshots soon. ;)

Looks hot! Wish I could cap stuff off the 360 in high definition, you'd be amazed!

I'm amazed now with my crappy screenshots, so I'd probably drool at the sight of Legend in high definition. :D

These screenshots are fantastic John! I wish I could play Legend in next generation mode. It looks so damn cool!

Thanks, Mark. :) Anyone can run next gen mode, you know. You just need to play around with the game's registry. I posted something a while ago about how to enable next gen with older video cards, but I can't seem to find it. :scratch: Bear in mind, I only play in next gen to take screenshots. The game is too choppy for my liking. ;)

Yes, I've read some threads about how to run Legend in next-gen mode with an old video card, but my video card is too old to run it (ATi Radeon 9200 SE), and it doesn't support Shader Model 3.0.

So... when I upgrade my computer, I probably will have some fun. :)

:thumbsup: Great pics!! I've still not figured how to take those darn screenshots... Next gen is awesome but my computer can't seem to handle it. It gets all choppy. I believe it's having issues with my nvidia geforce cards... But even without it I still love the game :)

Wow, great work. I especially like that one of her looking at the camera with her PLS on.

That's my favourite shot. I have the 1280 x 1024 wallpaper version if you like. :)

You can only take screenshots on the PC version. To do that, press the Print Screen button on the keyboard and paste the image in Microsoft Paint.

Not bad at all :thumbsup:

I actaully managed to get my nVidia 6200 running Legend in Next Gen mode. Not even remotely playable at 2-3 frames per second, but running all the same :D

Wow! Lovely pics :) Thanks! Wish I had next-gen, but even if I did somehow manage to play around with the registry, my poor laptop would probably combust. It only just passes the minimum system requirements, but having said that the gameplay is still fantastic. Oh well :rolleyes:

Those shots are so cool. I really want Next Gen...

But my almost dead laptop :( probably wouldn't even let me play Legend.
