If CTRL is used, Lara only climbs.

After getting the DNA crystal, where does Lara go?

She can't go back the way she came.
She can't use the elevator because of the floor and ceiling even though she wants to climb in it.

She can't do anything in the room with the giant corn and mutated rat, or at sinks.

She can't do anything in the room with the cages. She can't open the blue door. She can't shoot or pull down the ceiling vent trapdoor (?). Although she can climb cages there, she can't monkeyswing, backflip to pipes or the ceiling vent/trapdoor or anything.

If she is supposed to use the sulfuric or nitric acid, then how and where?

The game is at a dead end unless Lara can do something because none of the above work.

I can't make any pictures in this game. F3 does not work.

But you don't need a picture. There is only one room in this level with the DNA crystal on a pedestal and lab rats/corn experiments.
This is after the swim in the water canal and the "morgue beetles" or whatever CMS calls them.

As I stated in my post, Lara can not climb down in the elevator (she wants to) because of the floor and ceiling. There is no apparent way to get rid of them.

The print screen stuff does not work on my Win7 computer in trep customlevels like IceAge3. It works in the original game engine. I have always had trouble with that because of Microsoft Windows.

i don't know how you use pr/sc but i always used that also in win7
just hit the button and after that open paint then in paint use insert
i still not sure where you are
are it where a lady stands and clean the floor and you slide on the floor
then there are a key or something on hers cleaning trolley
then the elevator should open i think

Vimmers, I found the way to pull down the ceiling trapdoor and finished the level.

In my post where you didn't know where I was, I said I was in the experimentation lab where the DNA crystal is found in the middle of the room and Lara grabs it fighting baddies (this is near the end of the level before the zip line and house). I was stuck until I could open the ceiling trapdoor (very tricky) to push the button that dropped the ceiling in the elevator upstairs (next to the window with all the decals on the walls like where Lara was imprisoned at the start of the level) so Lara could climb up to the zip line area.

I have found all 5 secrets in this level, but I have to play a large part of it to record that fifth secret in the statistics. It is possible to miss one secret if you do not play the correct path in the game (there are 2 alternative paths in one place). But that is not the secret I have to replay part of the level for because I played the correct path the first time.

Regarding pictures, in the past I have used MS Word as an intermediary instead of Paint (which I never use) with the print screen, but it is very cumbersome and sometimes has to be done a few times to get the clipboard working using CTRL-C and CTRL-V. Core Design built F3 into the game engine for making bmp files, but some of the patched customlevels have disabled it which is very annoying. This is probably due to Paolone or others rather than the actual level builders like CMS.

How do I get the wheel for the red pipe to turn off the steam? She won't grab it or use the crowbar. :? Is it the one above the broken glass window with the laser's? Is this the one?

You need to turn a bit left facing diagonal, wiggle around a bit...

Is this door a timed one? The door is always closed. Is this a bug? I do it faster than the video and still closed. :? I do two underwater levers and it's still closed.
