Install
  • Make sure you have a clean install of the Steam/GOG version first.
  • Get the latest version[github.com] - click "Download Tomb Raider Automated Fix"
  • Extract and run the file to install.
  • Once complete, launch the game on Steam and select "Tomb Raider I" or "Unfinished Business" from the launcher.
If the launcher won't open and your PC is severely outdated, then you need .NET Framework 4.0[www.microsoft.com].
About
This tool is ideal for those looking for an easy automated patch to play Tomb Raider in it's best possible state.

Provides significant enhancements to the game:
  • Custom launcher to play the base game and Unfinished Business expansion
    (Thanks cheatfreak47!)
  • Unlocked resolution (runs in native resolution by default)
  • Improved graphics
  • Full soundtrack
  • Water color from the PlayStation version
  • Steam overlay support
  • No longer plays with DOSBox
  • Optional higher resolution or remastered cutscenes
Normally, this can be achieved by manually installing and configuring the Tomb Raider Retail Fix but that requires a lot of tinkering that many people have had trouble with. The tweaks are already made for you and the modded game can now be launched from Steam (unlike with a manual install).
Advanced Configuration (optional)
In the game folder, open the Patches folder and edit the correct file to manage additional settings:
  • tombati - Tomb Raider
  • tombub - Tomb Raider: Unfinished Business

I want to give a HUGE thank you to user Calmly Frenetic for solving the controller directional keys issue. It is correct about the compatibility issue with older versions of JoyToKey and the directional arrows of the keyboard. Changing the in game controls from the directional arrows to "I,J,K,L" keys and adjusting the JoyToKey profile to direct d-pad and analog stick inputs to these keys instead of the arrows fixed the problem. I did not test updating JoyToKey but I'm sure that will work also as my version is older.

I will copy his/her solution here for better visibility:

CALMLY FRENETIC: There is an incompatibiity between this patch and the arrow keys when using a controller with OLDER versions of JoyToKey. Either download the latest version of JoyToKey, or adjust the in-game User Keys for movement to something else (such as IJKL) and use those in your mapping.

Cool! I haven't messed with the controller support or JoyToKey at all as I use Steam Controller which handles keyboard inputs on its own.

This is amazing

Never installed mods before and this was so simple and gave every bit of information you need without any waffle. Easy to follow, does everyhting you will need in one package.

Can confirm it works perfectly and is safe
Scanned by MalwareBytes and is deemed safe

Everytime I install this mod the directional buttons no longer work on the controller. If I just use the vanilla game my controller works fine. As soon as I install the mod all the other buttons still work but the d-pad and joystick (assigned to directional arrows) no longer work even though they work fine before installing the patch. I've tried several different controllers (PS1/PS2 w/ adapter, SN30Pro, Xbox 360 wired, DS4 with DS4Windows, and Xbox One). The mod is awesome but I just can't get the controller working. It doesn't make any sense. The directional arrows on the keyboard work just fine. But for some reason the game wont recognize the same input when coming from the controller through JoytoKey. I've tried setting to Joystick to none in the config, I've tried using big picture mode, and all the other suggestions in this thread and anywhere else I can find. Nothing works.

For those that installed this mod and have trouble with their xbox controller, open steam, click on the "big picture mode" button in the top right corner and configure Steam to use your xbox controller. That's all I had to do to use the controller with this excellent mod.
