Re: Tomb Raider and the RMS Titanic

Not far from where Mugs was (up two posts) there is a corridor going down that is blocked by an invisible wall. Is there any way through?

Re: Joker - Lost Island

Why is it that I can never find a torch when I really need one? After placing the purple gem, the helicopter has landed, I have dispatched the cavemen, and I see I need a torch. HELP. (Please don't tell me it's outside the caves, because the gate is now closed.)

A tip, line Lara up, take one hop back, jump up once and then take a running jump and use the GRAB at the last second.
If you can't make it, post a save :D
Thanks, Gerty. That worked perfectly for me.

Re: ThierryStoorne Lara Croft and the HolyGrail Paris under snow

Actually, if you stand in the shallow water, the aim with just the pistols is low enough to let you shoot the crates. Not in my case. And Lara could not duck. But it worked, as I was jumping up and down while shooting. I wasn't precise enough. I know Lara wouldn't duck, but if she stands on the ram...

Gerty,

Yes it is the right direction. Jump to the square ledge in your screen shot and keep on going straight ahead by jumping to the other side of the roof.

Re: CS2010-TheKeeperOfTheSevenKeys

With respect to the rolling balls in the dragon room: Go to options and turn off automatic targeting (temporarily). Then you can target all three grates "manually".

Re: CS2010 - Rescue the Princess

In the chapel after getting across to the east side, how do I release the ropes? Someone mentioned a jump switch, but I haven't found it.

I can't get to this yin piece. Has anyone else encountered this? I guess I have to kill the shivas again.

l.m.,

Thank you for your prompt reply.

I played version 1 (stone1 -- 8/29, stone2 & stone3 -- 9/4). I was well into it before the shortcuts were discovered, so I kept on with that version.

l.m.

Wonderful game! The first time I played I only got 9 secrets, so, with some help from this thread, I played again, and this time I got 14 secrets. Is this possible?

I don't usually play with sound, so I have no clue as to when the secrets turned up. (I might just have to play it again!)

Thanks. Now I get to ask my next dumb question: How do I reprogram the keys (in TRLE)?

Which Laptop Key is Used for "Look"?

I've always used my desktop computer for playing custom levels and I'm used to using the 0 (ins) key on the number pad for "Look". My laptop doesn't have a number pad and I can't find any key that functions as "Look". (I feel really dumb.)
