Ouch! This is going to be nasty.

I just spend 12 hours in the weekend making my first mirror work. Sheer hell. I am the kind who carefully follows the manual and yet the silly thing did not work.

To add to my problems, it worked once - right before bedtime - and did not work the next day. I did everything possible: moved the level around in the editor to get a fresh x-coordinate to enter in the script, and removed doors in the mirrored room, since another manual says there can be only one door into the mirrored room (but if that is correct, then how did the secret door in Sacred Lake then work?).

The only thing that worked, was to delete the mirrored room completely, delete the mirror-command in the script. Make a new output of the script and start from scratch again. Then my mirror worked.

I am afraid, that is the only advice, I can give. If you are certain, you have done everything correctly, and the mirror doesn't work, delete the rooms involved and the mirror-command in the script, output the cleaned script and start over again.

That manual is clearly wrong! Think about it, you need one door to the reflection room, and one door for Lara to enter (minimun)! Also, I've made a mirror room with 3 doors (counting the one for reflection) and have had no problems.

Maybe that other manual was about only one door per each connected room ?
Thou shall not mess with Lara's resting animation. NEVER. EVER!

The number of doors in either the mirror room or the mirrored room is utterly irrelevant.
