TR2 - levyhgb - Escape from the Base

Post by Marksdad » 03 Nov 2014 16:10

I can't seem to work out where to go next. I've shot two frogmen,followed a sort-of-logical path up a very high ladder to a room with with two heavies and a flamethrower guy.At the top of this room is a button which I pressed,but I can't find anywhere else to go,as none of the closed doors that I can find have opened.
There is a lever in a room with some stacked crates,but no way to get to it.
Have I missed something?

*woops.Yes,sorry.The thread belongs here :)

Jump from the Niche with the Lever onto the Crates and to the third Lever in this Room. Do you have deactivated the big Fan in the Water? There is a Lever down in the Water and a Passageway

Thanks Scottie.I hadn't noticed the genuinely neat clue of the small medi on top of the stack of crates.
Finished now.

I'm stuck in the Room with the big Fan. I think I must shut this Trapdoor to get higher onto the grated Walkway, but how?

You opened it in the room with the crates. Climb the ladder there, back flip to the slope and jump off to land in the high alcove. Push the switch back up to close the trap door again.

I'm in the room where Ian met the thugs and flamethrower (and I've done all the tasks mentioned earlier by Scottie). What does that high button do? I hear a door closing somewhere nearby after a few seconds, but I don't know where it is.

Run/jump from the high platform into a nearby alcove in an adjacent wall (to your left when facing the timed button). The switch there opens a door at the foot of the tall cage structure.

Thanks :2thumbsup:

Damn, the Timed Door in the Room with the tall Cage Structure was really hard to find... :hammer: :bomb: :lol:

Is that timed door necessary for progression? I don't think I ever found it. Where,in fact,was it?

But I distinctly heard another door close a few seconds after getting down from pushing that high button. That button does not open the door mentioned by Ian. I suspect it's necessary first to push Ian's switch, enter the central structure and then later to use the button (because you don't have time to push the button, get over to the switch and then down to the floor before the button door closes).

"Ian's switch". Hey,I have a switch named after me in a custom level :D
I wonder if it isn't perhaps another glitch (as the final ceiling trapdoor was).

Mr Level Builder? Are you there? Can you enlighten us?

Got it! :D
It's for the jade secret. Activate the Ian Switch,which opens the door at the foot of the tall cage structure;then run/jump back to the high platform.Push the timed door switch and run/jump into the cage structure.The timed door is in the water passage at the bottom,but it closes very quickly.You need to pull the underwater lever twice to get out again.It's odd that the door makes no sound underwater,but you can hear it closing when you're standing in the room above.

The walkthrough mentions it's necessary to jump through the phantom trapdoor to find the gold secret, but for me it's not phantom, i.e. I can't get up there. Did I maybe miss something?

If you did, then I did too. I can't explain why that grate would be phantom for me and not for you. I didn't find a way to open it (not that I looked very hard).
