NextGen content

:-)I've been trying for ages, and i just dont get it. How do i unlock the Next Gen content? It's permanently greyed out on my menu screen. I thought it was an option, not an unlockable! Surely it would be in 'extras' if it was? Can anyone help?

It not something you unlock. You either have it, if your graphics card supports 3.0 shaders, or you don't.

It enhances the graphics of the game.

Next Generation Content simply means other graphics, better graphics than the non-next-generation-content.

I put some pictures together to show the difference between NextGen-Content and non-NextGen-content, I hope it's clear now :)

See the difference between:
1. Bolivia (ignore the different outfits xD)
2. Lara's face and the background
3. Ghana (again, ignore the different outfits and focus on the surroundings)
4. The Goth Outfit
5. The Ice in Nepal
6. The Snowsuit

@AngelofDarkness: I know, it's just for those who had asked ;)

I like it too and I think it's a bit unfair, that there are so many things different between those two things... like the glasses with the snowsuit/catsuit or the bracelet with the evening dress or the whole Goth outfit...
But well, I guess the NextGen content was made to make you upgrade your computer, make you jealous, make you want to have those things too, meaning more money and more profit for those selling and developping computer stuff... -.-"
But no, I won't do that, I'll be jealous until the end of my days :D

If your PC is capable, you can "have it" in the Menu (Options->Display).

If it is not selectable, you can "have it" from the hardware store. (New graphics card!)

You can only have it, if your pc allows it...
Umm, like TRG said:

It enhances the graphics of the game.

Your graphic card must be really well upgraded, if it's not, you can't play the game with the NextGen content.

EDIT: Someone was quicker ;) Yes, that's what I meant^^

...

If you can select the NextGeneration Content in your Legend options, your PC allows it. If not, you can't.
So try to select it in the options^^

For those of you that can run NextGen smoothly on your PC, what are your computer's specs? I was kind of disappointed when, although I could choose NextGen content, it was so choppy that it made the game virtually unplayable, whereas the non-NextGen was buttery smooth.

Post your specs!
These are mine:

2.0GHz Intel Core Duo processor
1GB 667MHz DDR2 SDRAM
128MB Radeon X1600 Mobility graphics card

:-?

For people with lots of computer knowledge, it is a Mac running Windows on another partition, so could this have anything to do with it?
