The nGlide Configurator
has several options you can use to improve the look of Tomb Raider. To use it look for the nGlide
folder in your Start Menu and click the Configurator
program. If you want to locate it on your computer manually it should be installed at one of the following locations:
32bit OS users: "C:\WINDOWS\System32\nglide_config.exe"
64bit OS users: "C:\WINDOWS\SysWOW64\nglide_config.exe"
If you followed the alternate method for installing nGlide, the configurator should be located in your Steam Tomb Raider folder.Screen Resolution
Recommended Setting: The highest supported resolution for your screen
For the best visuals it is best to put the maximum resolution your screen supports. The drop-down list has many resolutions that may be beyond your screens limits, so make sure to pick the one that is correct.
If you've no idea what your current resolution is visit www.whatismyscreenresolution.com
to find out what you're currently using and select that.
Higher resolutions will require more processing power so if you're suffering from poor performance you should select a lower resolution. Aspect Ratio
Recommended Setting: 4:3
Tomb Raider was originally designed to use a 4:3 aspect ratio so it is best to select the 4:3 option from the drop down list. If you don't do this, a widescreen resolution will stretch the image making everything look wider then it should be.Refresh Rate
Recommended Setting: By app (Default)
It is recommended to leave this as the default option unless you have a specific reason not to.Vertical Synchronization
Recommended Setting: On (Default)
This option removes the screen tearing that can occur on some computers.Gamma Correction
Recommended Setting: 0.7

Recommended Setting: Off
Set this to off to remove one of the 3dfx logo splash screens.An example screenshot of the nGlide Configurator for a screen with a maximum resolution of 1680x1050. Your resolution may be different.
