IMPORTANT: Tombraiders.net does not support any of these files and is not responsible for anything that happens to your computer as a result of downloading or installing them. I try to make every effort to ensue that all of the linked files are safe and functional, but I cannot guarantee they'll work on all systems. I recommend taking proper precautions with any downloaded file, including downloading from reputable sites, scanning with an anti-virus/spyware program, following installation instructions, and backing up your existing files before installing anything new.
Tomb Raider 6 Demos and Full Game Download
Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness (TR6) was designed to run on the Windows XP operating systems. The CD version of the full game can be patched to run without any problems in newer versions of Windows (see below).
The GOG and Steam downloads are fully compatible with Windows XP/Vista/7 and require no patching.
Tomb Raider 6 Bonus Levels
There are no bonus levels in this game; however, there is an unfinished training area in the first level that can be accessed by cheating or exploiting glitches in the game. This page explains how.
TR6 and Newer Versions of Windows
The PC version of Tomb Raider: Angel of Darkness was designed to run under Windows XP, so you should not have any particular problems installing the game. If you are still running Windows XP, I do recommend downloading and installing the v42 patch then the v52 patch before playing. (See the patches and utilities section below for download links and info on the issues these patches fix.)
TR6 on Newer Macintosh Systems
The Mac version of Angel of Darkness was designed for OS X 10.2.6 or later. If you're looking for help running it on a newer Mac system, I highly recommend MacRaider. This site includes a wealth of general information on the games, as well as a detailed section on backward compatibility. It includes info on PowerPC, Mac OS9, MacIntel, Mac OSX and various methods of running Windows games on Mac systems.
Other Patches and Utilities for Angel of Darkness
When running Angel of Darkness with Windows Vista, 7 or 8, I recommend Tomb Raider Chronicles' Windows Vista Multi-Patch, Windows 7 Multi-Patch or Windows 8 Multi-Patch instead of the patches listed below.
The GOG and Steam versions require no patching.
If you are still running Windows XP, I recommend downloading and installing the v42 patch then the v52 patch (below) before playing.
IMPORTANT: Once you patch to version 52, any saves you have made previously will not work. I recommend patching before starting to play, but if you've already done so, you can download savegame files made with the patched game in order to continue near where you left off. These can be found on my AOD savegame page.
- PC Angel of Darkness v42 Official Patch (5.2 MB) - Fixes crashes after remapping keyboard controls, lock-ups during FMV sequences, crashes after level load, missing shotgun, etc.
- PC Angel of Darkness v49 Official Patch - This patch is no longer recommended, since the newer v52 patch includes all the same fixes plus a few others.
- PC Angel of Darkness v52 Official Patch (6.9 MB) - Fixes timestamp on savegame files (now local time instead of GMT), various lighting effects, conversation now uses the Action key, cycle weapons key can now be remapped, rapid ammo decrease bug fixed, quick-save bug fixed, plus a few other minor fixes.
- Macintosh v. 1.0.1 Updater (949 KB) - Fixes bug in Louvre Storm Drains.

Angel of Darkness Cinematics
If you are unable to see the video sequences at the start of the game and between certain levels, or if you just want to watch them again, you can use the TRAOD Startup Configuration Utility (below) to access them directly. Or watch all the cinematics, including cutscenes within levels, on YouTube. (Thanks to TombRaiderCutscenes.)
Unofficial Patches, Trainers and Other Fixes
Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness HD Remaster
This series of fan-made patches is designed to fix bugs, improve controls and graphics, and generally make AOD the game it should have been. It includes many different tools created by many different people. You may not want every enhancement, but I highly recommend checking out what's available. Visit these sites for more info:

TRAOD PC Startup Configuration Utility (2.7 MB) - Slobodan "Bokkie" Ratkovic's awesome but unofficial utility for installing AOD with the available patches. It also allows for use of certain cheat codes, as well as direct access to cinematics and to specific levels, including the unfinished training area. (Link is to download and instruction page at tombraiderchronicles.com.)
TRAOD savegame files are on a separate page. I am not aware of any savegame or position editors for Angel of Darkness.
Disabling the Windows Key
Accidentally pressing the Windows (Start Menu) key probably won't crash the AOD game, but it can be annoying, especially during complicated platforming sequences. Fortunately it can be easily prevented by downloading and using this utility:
- WKeyDisabler by ShoXDK. Link is to the WKey Disabler page on Codeplex.com, where you will also find instructions for using it. (I have found this program very helpful, but I didn't create it and am not responsible for it. So use and enjoy at your own risk.)
Angel of Darkness Soundtrack
The Music of Tomb Raider has collected the definitive soundtracks for all the games. Visit their Community Discography page for details and downloads.
Angel of Darkness Audiobook
If you enjoyed the story and want to revisit it, or if you haven't played the game but would like to know more about what happened in the final installment from Core Design, I highly recommend this novelization, written and narrated by J.R. Milward. Listen on YouTube, iTunes, JRMilward.com, or via your favorite podcast software.
