The electric water room should be out of the game... Whoever has the clever idea of filling the attic with water and electricity? Never mind.

Thing is I managed to reach the first ledge, monkey swinged and finally reached the second ledge (I did but forgot to save, I'll get there again). It's still quite obscure knowing where I'm supposed to go from there and I'm assuming it'll remain as obscure right till the end of the room.

What's the second part of the Crime Report?

And how do you get the room object in the room with the police officer and all the glass walls? Any time I go near that place it triggers him.

I'm still trying to figure out the other two objects. This is what I have so far:
Microscope, billiard ball, glasses, library book, shoe, and a cooking pot. I think I'm missing them from the dining room and conservatory. Correct?

ETA: Found the leaf in the conservatory. Thanks again for all the help! :D

You get part 2 with the complete set of room items, tested below the church.

yes, you are correct but also I think you need the Hall item. That is very near the Conservatory.

almost there now... :D

Is that the thing in front of the statue in the glass area with the officer? I still can't get in there without triggering him. :(

So close, and yet so far... :D

ETA: Got the dining room item and the conservatory item. (How did I miss those?) :bestplay:

The hall item is the last one then. The end is within reach!

ETA2: Never mind, I finally figured it out. :hammer:

Stay on the carpet as much as possible so the cop won't hear you

Öhm, I think I ran into a situation here. :?

After having picked up the crypt access thingy, on any leveljump - well, those 3 I can reach - the game will end about two seconds later. :-o :cry2:

Here is what I did from last known good save to when issue occurred : Mounted the flying carpet, ran it over two red tiles, parked and left it there and proceeded by foot to the library. Opened the hidden door, picked up an item, opened a short hidden "roundabout" hallway (what for?), went on to pick up a note from Goldi, did a pushing puzzle for the revolver, then used the master bedroom key, got me a dagger and the crypt access thingy.

Now I can't go back the way I came, Lara always gets caught in the library. :(
picture : Image

This got me a bit anxious, like what if I can't get back to theflying carpet?
So I decided to take the way to the level's beginning, to from there go to the lab and see if Lara could follow the path she took before with the flying carpet, but Lara never got that far.

On the leveljump very close to the very beginning of the game, the game would 2 seconds later go to the title. :-o
picture : this leveljump :
Image

Luckily I then remembered that I had opened a way back through the room above the swimming pool.
:yay: , got to the flying carpet, and off she flew and into the levelswitch up there - and boom! Thrown to the title also there. :-o

The third levelswitch I have available is through the attic with the wasps, also there, after ~2 seconds : kaputt. :cry: The second leveljump - the one high up - is so that Lara then starts close enough to the levelswitch on the new side, so I had her jump back. This worked, and on that leveljump back she stayed in the game. However, this did not cure the problem, after that procedure a next levelswitch will then throw her to title after just a fraction of a second.

Is there a known cure for this situation ? :?
Maybe with the same savegame it does not happen on another's computer and could send it back after successful leveljump ?
savegame.14
(15.58 KiB) Downloaded 72 times
I then loaded the last known good save and proceeded from there without the flying carpet, and now after the 1st leveljump up under the ceiling, she stays in game, but I have TWO flying carpets. So maybe there is a problem with that (,too) ? :?
Thou shall not mess with Lara's resting animation. NEVER. EVER!

The carpet is a vehicle and will show in "another level" at its starting position. That's well known in TR

That's a problem alright :-P

No real idea why. Nothing like this has turned up before.
it has the look of a rolling ball trigger as you return to the ground floor, triggering a level end - hence the delay. It affects all return points to the ground floor.

Do you have any savegames from before you first used the Magic Carpet? If you do you could try heading up to the upper levels on your vehicle and get the level jump - then immediately return back to level jump back to the ground floor. See what that does.

You probably need a savegame from when you pick up the Key to the Crypt which I can send you but the inventory will be different.

Anyway, try my suggestion, as I find you a suitable savegame. :)

btw, didn't you say you had problems when you transferred this to your desktop or something?
