The TRNG Level Editor - the NGLE
By Paolone

This Next Generation Level Editor and Game Engine is the door to a whole new Universe of level building. For installation instructions on both the new game engine and the NG Scripter, please read the NG Manual in our tutorials section. Please note the new game engine requires the use of the NG Scripter to produce working DAT files.


The TRNG is a tested product, but is still used at a Level Builder's own risk, and it could have unknown bugs. This site only offers updates to TRNG, which is included in the Mk4 installer.

Download NGLE Project files - NGLE Project Files

You must make fresh DAT files using the NG Scripter after every update installation to prevent crashes. The TRNG is a tested version which is XP, Vista, and Windows 7 compatible.

Previous Updates
For older versions and history updates of the TRNG and NG Scripter, please visit Paolone's website.

If you install updates and hit problems it is available to roll back to previous updates at any time by opening the NG Scripter and clicking the Change Version button on the Settings tab and selecting a previous version of the software.

The Mk4 full setup is compatible with Windows Xp, Vista and Windows 7. This full setup contains TRNG and all the next generation tools. It is a self-extractor with an Installer program which is able to scan your trle installation to discover which files require updating. It is advisable to perform at least one full setup before installing other updates because you could have some necessary missing files in your existing setup. The TRNG installer will correct any problems or suggest how fix them.

Important Note! If you are new to the Level Editor, do not download the TRNG, instead download the Official Tomb Raider Level Editor below and build the tutorial level following the official manual and master the basics before attempting to learn the TRNG.
