I think I'm either facing a bug, or the water needs to be shallower. But I can't seem to be able to insert the skull, Lara steps and can't put the skull in the receptacle. I don't know how to fix this... :dunno:

there's a similar receptacle on the opposite side of the room, that's the one you want. :)

Thank you for the suggestion, Manymee. :) However, unfortunately Lara still is not inserting the skull on the receptacle you've mentioned. :?

Somehow, the water was shallow enough to insert the skull for one of the receptacles (I don't know why both sides were problematic yesterday). Now I can continue on with this adventure.

Thank you Manymee! :)

Maybe the author can answer this as it is bugging me.

At the very start there is a slide to a difficult slope and collapsing platforms sequence.
If you flip and slide backwards and then safety drop, you can end up at the bottom of that room still alive.

Is there anyway back up again or are you screwed and must reload.

If there is no way back, I feel that that is a design bug and that the floor should be lower so as to kill Lara.
No level should let the player get into an unwinnable position.

Cheers, Mike.

You will need to reload.
Actually, that very thing happened to me once in the Tibetan Foothills of Tomb Raider 2 (a gap Lara was supposed to jump with the snow mobile). Surely unintended, but rare to occur.
