I know this is probably gonna sound stupid, but from every screenshot i have seen (and the game trailer) her pistols are not properly aligned with the holsters... now i know this is stupid but if its not fixed its would probaly ruin the game for me and im not kidding :(

I just pray that eventually they do fix that problem, but one small thank you to CD, I LOVE THE NEW HOLSTERS!!!!

PLEASE FIX THIS IM SURE IM NOT THE ONLY ONE :)

Man, if Lara is going to look like a red "x", I refuse to play it.

What next, people are upset that the colour of her eyes are one shade less than the colour should be? :rolleyes:

It really agrovates me too, I like the AOD holsters, they had a nice brown to them and the guns fitted perfectly in them.

About the clipping issues, this really annoys me aswell:mad:.

Seriously, if this is not fixed then I will really think about not buying the game because it's the little things that agrovate me, in legend, if you wore something like the biker outfit or basically one that is unlocked, her guns go thru her holsters, they go right thru the edge of them:confused:, they should fit in perfectly with the pistolo neatly in the holsters.

Also, when the magnums are in the holsters they fit perfectly (nearly), look at this pic with the magnums on the right and the pistols on the left:

CD really need to fix this, look at how perfectly the AOD pistols fit in lara's holsters:

http://i5.tinypic.com/44b64jo.jpg

I agree, this really needs to be fixed, and I'm glad I'm not the only one thinking about this;)

Y'know, it also ----s me off extreemly badly that lara's hair just hangs down and dosn't rect at all with the water, how bloody well stupid is that, it dosn't blow in the wind either:mad:.

In tomb raider bloody 2, it:
Blows in the wind
Behaves properly in water
Lays on the floor when lara's dead.

And in legend, her hair does bloody nothing of that! That is what http://www.clicksmilies.com/s1106/sauer/angry-smiley-055.gifs me off:mad:


*sigh* sorry about making such a big deal about this but it really annoys me knowing that game designers can be so ignorent!

...You gotta be kidding...:rolleyes:

The game is not even out yet, we've seen very little of the game and people are complaining about those MINOR things...Anyway...When you're playing, I don't think it's her holsters that you're looking at, is it?

I'm sure this thing will be fixed, so no worries! TRA is gonna be awesome! :D

GO CD!:p

Alright, so you're saying once you begin playing the game, you'll stop the camera and inspect her from head to toe for hours on end? Crying out loud, Legend had this ultimate "holster bug" as well? Well that's great, because I noticed no such thing and I pay quite the attention to detail. There are some people here worrying about things that are unimportant. At least wait for the game to be released, it's not like Beyonce is going to voice Lara in Anniversary.

LOL, seriously people, who cares? As long as the gameplay is good fun, why does the fact that her pistols don't fit EXACTLY matter, it's not going to be something you see all the time, or at least, not something that's going to be a problem while playing.

now is the red cross X marks the spot because that's far too easy...or perhaps lara is going to be a humanatarian worker....

I'd just like it if lara's guns fitted properly into her holsters like AOD!

have you ever killed a squirrel, or a cat, you know ...
or punched out a window, stuff like that?

just kidding ... ;) ;) ;)
we've all been there, right! .... <,nudge>> <<nudge>>

here's what gets me:

:whistle: Clues made too obvious.
:whistle: Rare opportunities to explore.
:whistle: Alternate routes excluded.
:whistle: Zero side quests.
:whistle: You can finish in 6 to 8 hours.

of course, there was a reason for that in legend ...

anyway, its a public forum, let's relax and have fun, agree?

Make sure it lines up ;)

I have to confess, I hadn't even noticed the pistol issue. Besides, if Anniversary has the enemies of TR1 I'll be shooting things too much to notice. Also, the dual pistols may have lined up perfectly in Aod, but they weren't actually playable. I'd rather have the unaligned, usable versions, myself.

Personally, I think such a small detail should not spoil the enjoyment of what looks to be a pretty good game (fingers crossed). :)

I just wanted people to know how strongly I felt about this and if I didn't uae bad language, mabe it wouldn't make such a big impact, but your right, even though there's a censorship, I still shouldn't;)

Well there were holster problems in Legend as well, so probably they will not be perfect in Anniversary either. The game is using the same engine, a slightly modified model, but it seems the modifications are only in the looks department not how the holsters behave. Thats fine by me, l played Legend through many times before l even noticed the strange behavior of the holsters. l do not consider the problem that important, now if it was the braid that behaved strangely it would be different. :rasp:

Pac Man is a conundrum... So many dots for such a tiny guy...

I agree with TREEBLE about a Wii version. A high profile game like Tomb Raider should never be exclusive to any console. Making a game like Tomb Raider exclusive only limits it's potential sales. Exclusives just don't make sense for major titles.

You misunderstand me :) I realised you were eradicating the smiley, but because you used a gun, I made a joke about it being aligned correctly (the topic of this thread), then moved onto a different subject. I think that I was the unobvious one here :rolleyes:


Since 1980, Mangar? Gosh, that's a lot of worrying. But it is a pretty big issue that I had not even considered before. To think that all this time I've allowed my enjoyment for the game to hide the fact that it is so irrealistic.

eeer no, I noticed a fault with the guns in the position and then I replyed to a thread about it and now I've stated that it's now fixed, it won't make the game shorter, all it probably takes to fix it is 10 mins.

Treeble

Yes, but is that the single complain you see or make around? Don't think so. If they take time to listen to the moaners they'll go crazy within those very 10 minutes.

I'm sure the development team gets tired of seeing such incessant and minor whining over the littlest things. Maybe we should just let Crystal D. do their jobs aye? Anything is better than having the same game 5 years in a row basically, which is what Core Design did. They offered little to no improvements over the previous version. With this, even though it uses the engine..Crystal is making VAST changes to please the fans. So stop your whining and enjoy.

Oh yeah...btw:

People forget also that some parts of the footage shown is of the game in its early stages, as certain parts of the footage shows different things (i.e. shadows on, then shadows off). Many of these minor things people complain so much about probably have been fixed.

So stop whining. TR fans are the most notoriously hard to please, I swear :D.

Yere, like in the snow bit's if you'll notice, Lara's hear is stiff and for a breif second when she gets up after the wolve has been shot by her, her hair is stiff, then in egypt, it moves.

But in the first trailer, Lara's hair moves all the time and that's a very old trailer! so there's no excuswe for it to be stiff at the beginning unless it's a cutscnee, then I understand completely, because with the legend engine, CD have to animated her hair for a cutscene.

And obviously they havn't got to that stage yet;)

Déj* vu, anyone?

Just a thought: there are bound to be faults to be ironed out before the game is released. I might be wrong in thinking that CD has people observant enough to spot these. Hopefully they don't need us to find them. :)

Remember, they are showing us an unfinished masterpiece. I remember the first Legend trailer, when Lara's hair stuck out at a really weird angle. Luckily CD managed to notice and correct it without my intervention. :lol:

Everyone is now playing close attention to lara, but who is looking to her so closely while playing? I never payed attention to how those small details looked at when I was playing Legend, so I won't in Anniversary either.

I bet you guys didn't moan if you didn't have to wait for the time it's being released, so you were too busy solving puzzles and so on.
