Build status (Windows and Linux): Build status


  • This is an original game - it was carefully and completely disassembled and translated from MIPS back to C (except Memory Card menu) - no emulation involved
  • Game has been significantly improved over the original Playstation version, original bugs were fixed and completed some unfinished gameplay aspects
  • It now runs on Windows, Linux and soon to be on the other platforms (including backport to Playstation) and utilizes Psy-X (Psy-Cross) (formely extended TOMB5 emulator) as a layer for porting from Playstation
  • Basic modding support - with textures and models replacement provided with OpenDriver2Tools

How is it done?

  • All information (variables, types and function names) have been obtained from debugging symbols (.SYM), driver_psx_level and DLE
  • Ghidra project (based on Italian SYM) to deal with overlays, simple code complex branching - semi-auto decompilation
  • IDB based on Spanish SYM when dealing with things Ghidra can't handle properly - manual decompilation (mostly GTE code)


  • Feb 19, 2019 - created skeleton, one year long preparations
  • Mar 28, 2020 - started work on reimplementing the game, game intro running
  • Sep 19, 2020 - reimplementing game complete - game is fully playable
