IMPORTANT: Tombraiders.net is not responsible for any problems that may occur due to downloading these files or following advice given here. All of my files are guaranteed to be safe and malware-free. Still, I recommend taking the same precautions you would with any downloaded file, including scanning with an anti-virus/malware program, backing up your original files and, if you're unfamiliar with the process, following the step-by-step installation instructions linked from each download page. If you do, you shouldn't have any trouble.
A save file (also known as a savegame, game save or savefile) is a digital record of a player's progress in an electronic game. These files are typically stored on a hard drive or memory card. Save files allow the player to quit the game and continue later where he or she left off.
In Tomb Raider, every time you save your game, a file is created containing information about your progress so far—Lara's location, health status, inventory, items found and used, enemies killed, etc. When you reload a game you have previously saved, your computer or console interprets the savegame file and restores Lara and her world to the way they were when you saved.
Computer users can manipulate these files outside of game play using savegame editors. We can also trade saves with other players just as we would share text files, pictures or other documents—by saving the files on a disk, sending them as email attachments or placing them on a web server to be downloaded, as I have here.
Save files can be useful if you get stuck in a game, accidentally make a bad save (such as when Lara is about to die), encounter a bug or glitch that prevents you from progressing, or just want to skip to a particular section or level.
Note that some consoles—including Xbox 360 and to a lesser extent PlayStation 3—do not allow players to trade saves. I assume this is to prevent people from unlocking achievements/trophies by cheating. I do have a few PlayStation and PSP saves for some games, and I include instructions for using them; however, most of the save files on this site are for Windows, Macintosh and Wii.
