Thanks, Gerty, but the problem remains: Loaded your save ok but when I tried to move Lara she just turned around on the spot.

:-?

The issue may be with some broken registry files on my PC. I'm surprised it has only affected one level, though...

Lara does that sometimes at my end as well and the only solution I have it to wiggle the keys on my keyboard as they sometimes get sort of stuck.

I've encountered the "turning in place" problem on rare occasions (I use XP as well), but usually that's fixed by exiting and restarting. If that doesn't work, I'd suggest installing another level to see if the problem exists there as well. If not, then restart MLD and hopefully all will be back to normal.

Thanks, Phil & Gerty. I tried your suggestions, and a few ideas of my own (changing the keyboard controls) but the situation does not improve.

It seems quite entrenched. Saving/reloading, or waiting for Lara to finish her little sequences etc ... Nothing works :bomb:

The clue, I think, is that significant delay between pressing a key and seeing the action. Like I said: even pressing esc for the inventory causes it.

Hello...I play with Win 7, and I use to have this "turning in place" problem, or similars, with all recent games. When the problem begins, I have to close the game and restart the computer. But I discovered that if I play without Internet, the problem never appears. So, I always play offline...and also without AVG. If you want to try it... perhaps it will work.
