I was reorganising my betas folder, and I came across what looks like a TR2 PS1 beta. I've never tested it (because I don't have a playstation), so I'm not sure if it's real or not.

Anyone interested\should I upload to the server?

You could try a PSX emulator.

I tried the PSX emulator like you guys suggested. I got through the intro movie and to the main menu, but whenever I tried to start a new game, nothing happened. Here's some screens that I took:

@XFUBX: To get access to the BA FTP Server, you need to be a advanced Member with 10 helpful posts

How big is the .iso size?

PSX ISOs are generally less than 1GB, I don't know exact figures though. I guess the size is between 500-800MB uncompressed.

I'm uploading now.
The image is 750mb, but its compressed to 355mb, and I'm still not sure if its a beta or retail.

EDIT: It's finished uploading to the BA server. Just need to wait for it to be moved.

I'm pretty sure the final version of this game had an issue starting in emulators, see if there are any patches specific for the game in the emulator you are using, though if this is the beta they might not work.

It worked first time here in ePSXe with no problems.

ePSXe: 1.7.0
Bios: SCPH3000.BIN
Video: Pete's OpenGL Driver 1.76
Sound: ePSXe SPU core 1.7.0

The title screen is different to the PC version of the game, however I’m not sure if the PSX version was different anyway? If someone could confirm that would be great.

I was going to try the level skip cheat and skip through a few levels and see if anything looked different or even if the game had all the levels however I can’t get the level skip cheat to work.

Level Skip Cheat: Sidestep left, sidestep right, sidestep left, step backward, step forward, spin two times, forwards jump turn.

Screenies:

No, it's definitely beta. The PSX and PC versions were pretty much the same. The title screen of the PSX beta is different, the sky texture is different, and the aircraft hangar doors open differently in the Oil Rig FMV, among other things. These are just the changes that immediately come to mind.
