A prototype/prerelease build of Tomb Raider: Legend for the PlayStation Portable from 2006-02-23 (about four months before the game was first released).


  • This is a preview build of the game.
  • Press Square + Circle to access an extensive debug menu.
  • Includes test/debugging areas such as mdlview 1.
  • Includes PSP-exclusive areas such as the master system rooms.
  • Like most PSP development builds, it was distributed as UMD layer images on a DVD-R. Because it is a dual-layer UMD, converting the files on the release image requires several steps, and CVLT OF OSIRIS has included both the original DVD-R image (Tomb_Raider-Legend-2006-02-23.iso) and a version that is ready to play in an emulator (Tomb_Raider-Legend-2006-02-23-Converted-Bootable.iso).
  • If you wish to recreate the bootable image from the original dump instead of using the premade bootable image, follow these steps:
    • Extract the USER_L0.IMG and USER_L1.IMG files from the DVD-R dump.
    • Concatenate the two files together, layer 0 first, layer 1 second into a new file named Tomb_Raider-Legend-2006-02-23-Converted-Bootable.iso.
    • Download UMDGen ( if you do not have it already.
    • Open the ISO in UMDGen.
    • In UMDGen, navigate to the \PSP_GAME\SYSDIR folder and right-click on BOOT.BIN.
    • In the menu, choose File Relinker, then Use Selected File as Source.
    • Right-click on EBOOT.BIN.
    • In the menu, choose File Relinker, then Relink to '\PSP_GAME\SYSDIR\BOOT.BIN'.
  • The UMDGen steps may be optional for some PSP emulators.
