I like the effect, was actually explored really well by the art style in Soul Reaver.

you know tomb raider is on PC right

>> No.4219153

I personally can't stand PlayStation's affine texture mapping. Saturn managed to avoid most of the problems by mapping to quads instead of triangles, but the only mitigation that PlayStation can really do is tessellate the everloving shit out of geometry to minimize the effect and it never quite works.

>> No.4219167

Yes yes no zbuffer and ducks go quack.

>> No.4219169

Tomb Raider on the Saturn ran at 20 fps compared to 30fps on the PSX.

Later games with improved Gfx like Tomb Raider 4 and 5 would not even be possible on the Saturn.

>> No.4219170

I'll take the zigzags over that garbage texture resolution.

>> No.4219171

Wtf are you talking about the resolution is the same. Saturn technically had more Video Ram.

>> No.4219172

Huge Saturn fan but the fact that it still got good games despite being such a clusterfuck taped together system is a true testament to Sega's outright tenacity.

>> No.4219174

Either way the console versions are not the ideal experience, just play the PC versions.

Pc Master race always wins, baby.

Where those still using the same engine? It was already dated when 3 used it.

>> No.4219191

Levels are still constructed out of blocks, yes.

>> No.4219206

Damn they sure got their use out of it.

>> No.4219226


Compare the white spots on the texture in both pictures. The one with zigzags has much more of them. It's pretty fucking clear that genesis had lower resolution textures.

>> No.4219274

PlayStation version has higher resolution textures and smoother lighting (when played on newer PlayStation models; at the game's release the Saturn's lighting was a bit smoother due to the launch PlayStation's gouraud shading bug). Saturn version has less texture warping and longer draw distances but runs at a lower framerate. I consider it a wash, honestly.

>> No.4219303

Who cares about 4 and 5 not being able to run on Saturn when those games were on Dreamcast?

>> No.4219328

Tomb Raider 1 & 2 are better than the nuTomb Raider shit we have today.

>> No.4219335

Yes they are. The Crystal Dynamics reboot ain't bad either.

Dreamcast has a loud cooling fan which takes away from the immersion of exploring underground crypts.

I'd like to Zig-Zag Lara, iykwim.

why would anyone think that interpolated textures look good?

I like the zigzags

Modern emulation can fix the texture mapping, but nothing will ever fix the N64's low texture resolution.

It's all because Pillar of Dimension broke.

You do realize that texture packs have been a thing for years in n64 emulation, right?

You realize they are all incomplete and look like eye cancer, right?

They do, but they don't even cover a tenth of the N64's library.

Lara is the best vidya character, do you agree?

is this the PC version?

There are hotkeys for every weapon on pc.

I loved TR1 but I could never get myself into TR2 or 3.
I watched a playthrough of 2 and, something feels off, I don't think I would have managed to go through it all.
Note that I'm also a weirdo that actually liked Angel of Darkness, though I completely agree that many parts are extra shit and it's a bugfest, but dat soundtrack doe.

>> No.4220616

Try TR4, it's like the first but better.
