Dang it! Now after testing it, i come to the same conclusion! :eh: :oops:
Tested on my 2008 PC / XP. Have been investigating several options all yesterday evening till night... I'm suspecting it's a matter of CPU's that are too fast for those old games...?

I have to reassemble my 2005 PC i was using when i posted that on TR forums. Wanted to do that anyway, someday. I'll come back to you.... :inv:

Tests are done.
Result: it's in the game.

  6. Single core CPU: Intel Pentium 4 ~2.66Ghz / Asus P4PE / 1 GB RAM / Radeon 9700 Pro / Creative Audigy 2 ZS / Windows XP: cutscene cutoff
  7. Single core CPU: Intel Pentium 4 ~2.66Ghz / Asus P4PE / 1 GB RAM / Radeon 9700 Pro / Creative Audigy 2 ZS / Windows XP (same PC as 6 = dualboot) all data from cd copied to hdd /w. patched exe: cutscene cutoff

So when i posted that on tombraiderforum, i assumed but had not checked. Someone else in that thread suggests that "due to different PC configurations..." etc. But my tests prove that's not the case.
No matter the PC hardware and configuration, there is not even the tiniest difference how the cutscene rolls out, in all cases identical.
It must have been the Playstation version i remembered. I should have checked back then, so i would not have caused the confusion. I hope you can forgive me. :oops: :cry:
Thanks for making me doing the tests in the end! :thup:
