I tried to capture as many saved games as possible. Tomb Raider sometimes saves before a cutscene, sometimes after, and sometimes both. If there isn't a save game for a particular moment, I probably couldn't get one, but usually you can get to that moment pretty easily from the previous save. I completed all collectibles before leaving an area, but any games during an area will be in varying stages of finding the collectibles. At several points I backtracked for gear gating in small areas but didn't make saves specifically for that added salvage. I did not spend any salvage throughout the entire game, so when you use my saves you can upgrade however you like!
These save files were created on Tomb Raider's original release v1.00.716.5 as well as patch v1.00.718.4. I haven't found any issues playing the original saved games on the patched version of the game.
With Tomb Raider's latest patch, using backed up saved games no longer functions very well. To use a saved game, rename the file save1.dat (it must use this filename for the first save slot, any other filename and the save just won't show up), and copy the file into your saved game directory:
32-bit Windows: C:\Program Files\Steam\userdata\(your_user_ID)\203160\remote
64-bit Windows: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\userdata\(your_user_ID)\203160\remote
You can't copy saved games while Tomb Raider is running. Doing so seems to always result in a corrupt saved game. I recommend that you create a backup copy of profile.dat (in the same folder as the saved games) and lastcamp.dat (same folder again) before you mess around with any save files. It is also highly recommended to disable Steam's Cloud synchronization for this game, otherwise Steam will just rewrite the saved games with the Cloud files! I take no responsibility for any problems you have using these files!
Warning: There be spoilers here! Obviously!
UPDATE March 27: I have created a second set of saved games. This set is less comprehensive, but still substantial with 73 saves. The main difference between this set and the original set is that I didn't spend any skill points (in addition to not spending salvage like the first set), and I didn't collect any collectibles, do any challenges, or do any of the tombs. So basically all the side stuff is left for you. You can download this set here (5 MB).
