Windows PC Tomb Raider 3 Save Files

The downloads listed below include various save points for each level, including all secrets and following most difficult sequences. These should work with the original CD version, as well as the GOG and Steam downloads. Again, check the Instructions/FAQ for help installing saves in each of these versions.

If you are playing on a system with Windows XP, Vista, 7 or 8 and have installed the Windows multi-patch from tombraiderchronicles.com, you may find some of these saves don't work for you. Try Jeff Reid's save files made with the Windows XP patch (below) instead.

I have noted the order in which the middle locations (Nevada, London and the South Pacific) are played in each set of saves. If these don't match the order you chose, you may need to download additional saves later to avoid missing or repeating levels.

Each of the downloads linked below includes a 'readme' text file listing the in-game locations for the saves in that level. For a complete list of all 190 TR3 saves, see here.
