Did you try to climb the ladder and re-use the switch again before you use the timed switch in the swamp?

Of course, I've read the post and still think the same. :?
I can't remember well what I did weeks ago when betatesting, but I think this is what I did:
- When the dragon is active, I parked the boat and climbed the ladder to open the door next to the dragon.
- Then I went back to the boat and drive to kill the dragon, entering into the area with the timed switch.
- Next I parked the boat and climb the ladder again to re-use the switch and close the door.
- Finally I went down and use the timed switch in the swamp to start the timed run. I think pulling that timed switch will trigger the door again to open it.
Sorry but this is what I can remember.

No bug Vimmers, you just have to figure out how to do this in the correct order...Hint... first put the boat back through the gate and leave it at the stairs where you jumped out maybe? Then go for the timed lever....

It's possible to reach the timed door by running and not using the boat at all.
The timing is brutally tight, though. :rj: Took me over 15 minutes to work it out.

I am at the timed switch in the swamp. I know I saw the cutscene and the timer. Went to leave the boat beyond the door, went back on the switch, saved, quit the game and now it doesn't work anymore. Going to a previous save, before killing the dragon, same result.
Is it a bug or a computer thing? Can someone check please?

PS. Using the provided samegame at the switch, it works.
I use the latest version of the game.

You have not pulled the 1st lever in the sequence. You have to pull that then step on all the other lever squares in sequence and it will work.

Here is a save with the lever pulled, (you may have to pull it again as the timer is already down a few secs).

Obviously at some point I reloaded the wrong save :hammer: 'cos I'm sure I had pulled all of them in the correct sequence.
Thanks for the help. Great game so far :)
