What are the Walkthrough Versions
In almost all the walkthroughs you will find a walkthrough version (e.g. 1.0, 2.0...) these indicate how often the walkthrough has been revised. Generally 1.0 is the original version, 1.1, 1.2 indicates, that there have been minor changes (spellcheck, added goodies...) 2.0 indicates that there have been significant changes (graphics have been added, whole sections have been altered...)

What is Expert's Challenge?
The name expert's challenge has been first used on tombraiders.com (a site which has gone off the net a while ago) and in the newsgroup alt.games.tombraider (short a.g.t.). It describes a part of the game which only experienced raiders can reach by using bugs and cheat codes.
If there is an expert's challenge for a certain level, you can find a description at "levelname"bugs.php (e.g. junglebugs.php)

How to use Winrar - how to unpack savegames.
All savegame files on this website have been zipped using winrar. You will have to download winrar to use them. You can download it here: www.win-rar.com. If you are having trouble: read the winrar manual! I didn't use winzip, because these savegames are smaller with winrar.
After installing the program, do the following:
  • Right click on the file you want to unzip (e.g. venice.rar).
  • extract files
    • Choose extract here to unzip the saves into the main folder

  • Copy these savegames (savegame.0 savegame.1 ...) into your game folder (e.g. Golden Mask, Tomb Raider II...).
