1, There's no compass, Lara had a compass in tomb raider 1 so why not here?:confused:

2, The medipacks should be on the other side and the small medipack should come first, if the pistols aren't on the left and the medipacks aren't on the right, I'm going to get confused.

3, and also, the background of were you can see lara should be faded black.

Crystal Dynamics really should fix this, seriously, I really will get confused with the medipack positions and I want it to be fixed before release.

LOL :lol: oh dear me can we say nit picking?

CD are not making a clone, even core design tweaked the inventory system in subsequent sequels. I think CD's inventory looks amazing, nods to the first Tomb raider while moving forwards.

Also in all the times i've played TR1 (don't ask how many i'f long since lost count, never with a walkthrough) i've never needed the compass so can harldy pick at Cd for removing an essentially useless item.

Having no fade to black is brillient it hints at a realness the fade to black doesn't, without loosing the feel of the inventory system.

Everything i've seen so far just makes me want to play the game more and the more nit pickers i see the funnier it all is ;)

Lol at least you admit it. I have to confess I am guilty of spam posts sometimes. Of course, your comment could apply to some threads too. :whistle:

Sorry couldn't resist :rasp:

wow.

I have a great idea for people who complain that things arent exactly like they were 11 years ago... PLAY THE ORIGINAL.

the reason the menu looks different than the original game is because this is not the original game. The screen had to switch off to look at the inventory likely because they didnt have the technology to have so much extra on the screen at the time.

plus- did anyone honestly use the compass for anything except for doing the cheats on TR4?

plus if you want to see the medipacks on the other side of the inventory... then scroll them over to the other side because it rotates

I know it rotates, but about the useless compass, wich I agree on, hey could change it to that statistics clock thing, I just want it to be like the original with the blackened background.

There Are Problems With that picture, but i reckon its just a sample picture to show us what it will look and be like, i dont think this is the official/finished version, its just a teaser to give us an idea :D :D

"blackend", "faded", "grey-ish"...yeah, I noticed that (http://forums.eidosgames.com/showthread.php?t=65154) too. not because it looks bad, but it just may be a bit confusing this way, but I'm sure it'll be fixed. ;)
however, like Trinity said, I think it's a sample picture and those tiny errors shouldn't be taken too seriously for now.

Agreed. Let's not judge 'til we're sure it's final. Remember all the stuff that changed for Legend? Whole 'missing' levels, etc.? And what's the point of a compass unless we need to use it?


Oh and what we need in this thread is some Vikings :cool: :D Perhaps they'll sing us a song about spam.

Spam spam spam spam. Lovely spam! Wonderful spam!

I agre with you now, I never thought about it like that.


Anyway, can all of you just stop going on about spam, it's upsetting me!

Fans wanted the original rotating inventory and got it, since Legend did not have an inventory as such it was no problem to include the classic one. We also got a nice updated version of the original music to go with it. Phlip if you cannot tell the difference between a large medi pack and a small one that is your problem, make sure when choosing you have your eyes open! The contents of the inventory do not have to be exactly the same as the original

Y'know, Phlip, talk is cheap, and it's easy to criticize. You seem like you have a lot of ideas and a lot of time on your hands, why not participate in one of the contests in the sticky threads and show the world a masterpiece that you created? I personally wouldn't mind if you were to create yet another thread but this one would be wallpaper you created. Have you seen the wallpapers Kiss-bite and others have created? Just a suggestion.

Here Here! Completely agree

I mean come on! To complain about the background colour and where the med packs is situated is....well...brings a new meaning to petty complaining

I kind of like the new inventory screen. It allows you access to the inventory, without taking you completely out of the game. Nice idea. As for getting confused, I don't think this will happen, as the items in the inventory are quite large. I can see people having a hard time or getting confused if they were looking at itty bitty items, but they clearly are not. If someone plays on something other than a 13 inch tv, they'll be fine. ;) As for the compass, I won't miss that. I always wondered why it was included in the original...

I think this game is going to be heaps good if you cnt see the inventory then you'll obviously need glasses and as for the background being black you dont see that in real life do ya i think not and we have to face it the games are getting a lot more real with the graphics and that so little changes like the non shadowy part are to be expected and it aslo lets you know there is no immidate danger lurking in the shadows.

what makes you think I can't see the inventory image?:confused:, I wouldn't be complaining if I couldn't see the image:nut:

People just need to stop nitpicking at the pre-release stuff, just be happy they supplied you with something ;) And after all, this isn't TR1, this is TR Aniversary, and if they want to make small changes to things like the inventory, let them, it doesn't matter, it's a remake not a copy :rolleyes:

I completely agree with the original poster! I am disgusted that they are changing things from how they were in the original. I also heard the the graphic options on the PC won't let me play at a resoluion of 320 X 200!!! And Lara won't have pixelated cones as breasts! How the hell can they call this a tribute to the original when they keep changing things? I bet it won't even run properly in DOS mode. Crystal Dynamics should be ashamed!

What they SHOULD do is just re-release the original with absolutely no changes at all, and slap a price tag of $49.99 on it. THEN we'd all be really happy.

They should add a hugging smiley :scratch: Or maybe not.

And yes, the menu ring looks awesome, lets not complain about the order, lets just be happy that it's there at all.

But it doesn't matter to me, I'm not buying the game since her top isn't green enough :rolleyes:

The stupid useless compass that served no purpose needs to return! It was so priceless to have a compass that upon being selected..did nothing but stare you in the face. Perfection!
