The NGLE Manual

 by Paolone, George, and AkyV
All these tutorials are fine with TRNG, which is installed with the TRNG MkIV installer. TRNG is available as an update through the NG Center once you have installed It is recommended that players use the exes provided in the download for each adventure. If you are new to the Level Editor, it might be better to download the Official Tomb Raider Level Editor and build the tutorial level following the official manual to master the basics before attempting to learn the TRNG. Download the TRLE Official manual by Gary LaRochelle in pdf format here (3.81Mb). There is a selection of project files illustrating many of these tutorials available from theĀ  Project FilesĀ page..
