"The classical first installment of Tomb Raider with four additional levels, specially designed for Gold Edition."

On the Macintosh, "Tomb Raider I" has been named "Tomb Raider Gold" from the very beginning,
because "Tomb Raider II" was published first. Both games are based on the same engine, so the developers decided to provide "Tomb Raider I" (as "Tomb Raider Gold") as well.

For Mac OS 7.5.3 to 9.2.2 (PowerPC)

"You're in the role of Lara Croft, a great looking female who, tired of her boring English life, has decided that dangerous adventuring is more her cup of tea. Eventually, her wishes come true as she meets a wealthy tycoon who hires her to retrieve a single artifact from a ruined temple in South America. After you get the artifact, you find out that it's only one out of three mysterious parts that are hidden in a 'tomb' world all around the globe. You'll travel through many worlds and distinguish places like Egyptian sphinxes, Greek temples, Atlantis and more... and with each, tougher traps and riddles to confront. Since tombs are usually radiated with 'no-living-person' atmosphere, you won't find much of a human enemy on your quest, in fact quite a small amount. Most of all, you'll battle wolves, bears, bats, and that sort of animals. Just to add a woman's touch to all of that, you'll be using a pair of magnums, a shotgun and an Uzi to express your feelings. Each level brings a new world to explore and new threats to our heroine, so watch your steps and be cautious."

I have some serious issues in classic on my G4-mini.
The keyboard commands lag very strange and Lara has missing textures.
Is there any chance to optimize the game or the classic environment to get a better compatibility?

Try locking the disk image first, if not already done so. Mac OS X 10.7 removed support got writable HFS partitions, so if the disk image is not "read-only" Mac OS X 10.7 and 10.8 will refuse it.

Darn. .toast Image won't mount no matter what I do in Mountain Lion. I get 'no mountable file system'. I suppose my retro-Mac days are numbered. MacFuse isn't doing what it's supposed to either.

I remember running this a bit poorly at my performa 6320cd... but when i try this in a G3 266 Desktop, it was cool.

The beige G3 desktop models were very plain but reliable, and (at least in the States anyway) are cheap and plentiful. They're a nice bridge between older and newer systems because they have SCSI and ADB and yet can be set up with USB very cheaply and easily. And they only require OS 8, which won't break a lot of the software that breaks under OS 9. Since they don't have built-in monitors you don't have to worry about a built-in monitor burning out. Just get a little adapter and hook up whatever you have.

Big smile Then again, I love all the models!

I don't remember the Tomb Raider I had, I think it was the first one,
the graphics looked like the Screenshot, very nice and advanced,
and I had a Performa PowerPC 225mhz/ 96mb,

I really liked that Mac 'cuz I NEVER had problems running games, I even installed a TV card
and used to watch Cable TV on that Mac,
so now, I'm looking for a Mac with at least those Specs,
Haven't had luck finding it so far.

I found an iMac G3 (the original) but I was not quite convinced.

This one runs on my iMac G3 333MHz with 384MB RAM at a decent speed. I do have a newer 80GB hard drive that speeds everything up on that iMac, though. I haven't played the sequels on Mac, but from what I remember on PlayStation, they started pushing the system harder and were more difficult to play so they might demand more from a Mac than this particular TR. Generally anything that was a PlayStation game will run okay on my iMac, though sometimes they need to be configured carefully.

I'm sorry, my last post wasn't supposed to come off as sarcasm... Tongue

Done up as in, the max capacity and specs for an imac G3 for example: 1GBRAM, 130GB HD with 700MHZ.

Works flawlessly on a real Mac too. Thanks Balrog. This brings back memories.

Now I'm starting to miss Fallout. Damn hard drive crash...

Extracting in host operating system, adding to the emulator's drives list preferences, it mounts perfect in SheepShaver.

This will take a few minutes to transfer to S3.
EDIT: it is up!

This is a .zip-compressed .iso. I haven't tested it, so I can't make any guarantees.

I believe the title "Tomb Raider" implies we are talking about the first version, Tomb Raider Gold, only.
It's even on a full-sized CD-ROM, way too large for now.

TR II, III and IV should be listed in separate entries.

I have the collection. This is made up of four almost-full CD images (Tomb Raider Gold [1], II, III, and IV), way too large to host here.
