I had a similar issue. I never found a solution so I just turned off Next-Gen until that whole sequence was finished and I got to an area with normal gameplay and then I turned Next-Gen back on and it worked again.

I'm trying to avoid spoilers because I don't know if you played this before, but I turned Next-Gen off during the motorcycle chase until I got up to the research lab after the Quick-Time Event. During that part, even when Next-Gen didn't crash, it had a lot of errors like terrain not appearing so I couldn't see where the ground was.

While I can't say it will work with this specific problem (I haven't reached the level yet), I found a secondary fix that seemed to cure all my next-gen graphics crashes. I had a number of those, and they cleared up completely after doing something really simple.

Swap the game exe compatibility to windows xp service pack 3.

The only other thing I did was add the game as a non-steam game to allow for the overlay. No idea if this combination did anything of significance. You should be able to find the exe in your ProgramFiles -> steam -> steamapps -> common

It should be labeled trl.exe (or something localized).

hope it helps. I couldn't even get past the first box puzzle without crashing, but after doing this I got past the first boss fight and haven't had a crash.

i'm in khazak stage, using next gen and working fine for me
my OS is windows 8.1 x64
but steam overlay still not working ingame
i keep my dx9 full updated and all my drivers also
and win 8.1 too

but if you using Windows Bug 7, maybe you need to:
do a backup of your steam TRL, then unnistal it
download a retail version 1.0(dvd version) and install it
then install update 1.1 and 1.2 after
now go to where you installed that version
make a copy of full tomb raider legend big files(all of them)
now unnistall the retail version and install steam version
now go to where your steam TRL is installed and paste all the retail big files you saved
then overwrite all, that is done, that worked for me when i was on windows bug 7

OBS. Make sure you have installed direct X9 full package on your pc, you need old dx9 dlls for this game

OBS2. sorry bad english

I have retail DVD-version 1.2 patch with working Steam overlay, and this solution, what you scribed above - didn't work for Windows 7 either

overley works if you add as non steam game
but not like the steam games
abd about TRL, make sure your ant aliasing is off
cause its not working in TRL, and makes no visual diference
i beat that game minutes ago and works great here(steam version)
i'm sure, you have an issue with your Operational Sistem
and make sure you update your trl manualy, patch 1 and 2, if you just upgrade to 1.2 without patch 1 first, the game will ever crash with next gen

idk if i can put this here,but if you need a retail version of trl in 1.0,maybe you can find it in P.bay
ps. i beat the game minutes ago, works great with next-gen content on, and ant alliasing off, in resolution 1920x1080
i didn't need to run in compatibility mode
i hope you find a solution for your issue

Thanks, but i have no idea how to do this. Because my non-steam game is already in 1.2 version. All i can do it is disable AA in NVIDIA settings. Besides - on my old system with WIN XP SP3 & ATI RADEON GPU - game works fine in NEXTGen or not. Problems begins when i started use Windows 7 64

p.s. Can you make a video instruction?

maybe your problem is just a dx9 issue
try that:
1- go to http://www.softwarepatch.com/windows/directx.html or
http://www.microsoft.com/pt-br/download/details.aspx?id=34429 or
http://www.gamefront.com/files/4979296/DirectX_9_0c_Full_Download__English_
and download dx 9 full package
2- to install it, run in compatibility mode with windows xp sp2 or sp3 or vista
maybe that dlls fix your TRL next-gen issue
if you want a reatil 1.0 version you can find in pirate bay, i can't link it here cause i can get banned,but its easy to fin there, its 4gb, and follow my fist comment instructions to installation(don't use crack)
if you can post the error log in english, i can try to help you more
i don't understand russian, i'm sorry

Hello. I trying do this! Nothing happen. My last resort it is 3D Analyze. I hope i take right combination of correct options in this software.

I've had issues in Khazakhstan too, though I got a fatal error during the level... i will try turning of next gen graphics and see if I get through it without a crash.
