It is probably pretty obvious because nobody else has asked about it, but where do I use the coins (bribe)?
The one I think is the flautist does not take them.

Getting very confused in this level. I'm in the mirror room, done the walkthrough wall and opened the gate. Now I'm in the new area, that looks very much like the old area and can't find anything to do. No doubt I'm missing something pretty obvious, but what?

Of course you're not but I can't complain cause I'd already read about it before starting...

Anyway, I'm still in the first area and haven't found a way of getting into anywhere (not to mention the palace :roll: ). The best I did was crossing a pit to the other side and, after arriving, finding there was probably nothing I could there at the moment.
So, if I could maybe get some help?

Jay, if you look in the mirrors in the new area, there is one that shows a new hidden opening although Lara is not reflected in it.

I am trying to find my way to the secret in the mirror area - so far without luck.
Could someone enlighten me, please, how to get there?

Thanks Gabi, I'll have a better look.

Jorge, I can't remember exact details but there's definitely things to do across that chasm.

Have you used the switch there after the monkeyswing halfway between the pits? That should raise a platform on the other side of the pit which enables you to proceed.

@ Gabi, The Big Turkey Buzzard suggests the following:

Gabi, to get that secret you should
SpoilerShow
take another look at the other side of the mirror (the one where Lara is not reflected) and find another portal Lara can jump through (it's on the left side of the mirror).

Is this meant to be a hint? Because, if it is, I don't get it. :blush:

Maybe I should mention what I have achieved so far, or better what I still need to do.
Theoretically I could finish the level but:
SpoilerShow
There are two women who Lara keeps looking at. Behind them is a door - no idea how to open it.
The object from the picture in my previous post. I was wondering whether I might have to give that to the woman who is obstructing the door for her to move aside?
Secret No.5 on the upper floor of the last area (where the level ends on the lower one). I can see a crawlspace but have not found a way to access it.
Any further help would be much appreciated as I have been trying to find a solution to these problems since yesterday. :dunno:

you can't , it's just part of the illusion and only the one Yazd City Seal in the entrance room can be acquired (the room with the ladder).

Well, that's just mean ... :lol:

What do I have to do to open the door where the two ladies are?

From another Blue tired Bird:

Those two women at the beginning are just there to give you the Yazd Tourist Guide and Shotgun, the door is just there for decoration. Lara looks at them to make sure the player receives the Tourist Guide. You're not missing anything else there.
SpoilerShow
For the final secret, that crawlspace is an exit, not an entrance. If you alerted the thieves in the cave and the red doors closed, you lost access to the fifth secret. So if you want to get it, you should reload a savegave and try to take a more stealthy approach (that's what the lever switch, lower crawlspace and yellow gate are for - so you can sneak past them). And if you're missing any other of the 5 secrets, you'll find one in each of the main areas listed on the tourist guide, one in each temple - not in the city itself.
Oops, I did it again... Image

Thank you all for your help, I have finished the level with all secrets now and have to say that I enjoyed it very much.

The door is quite misleading, though, as Lara goes through the motions of trying to open it, and I thought she could not because one of the ladies was in the way.
So I went searching high and low for something to give her in order to coax her away.

Same with the visible but unreachable star in the mirror labyrinth - I searched and searched for ages before being told that it was just a red herring.

Other than that I had lots of fun and really liked the layout and the colourful environment.
Personally I did not experience a lot of lag, just a bit up on the rooftops.
