Room item 6 is the Library item - a book.
You will need to return to the Library from the higher corridor (where revolver was) and return to the Library that way.
One complication: The cops have already glanced you so there is now not enough time to slip by them again.
solution: As you descend to the library down those shallow brown marble steps look for another small switch low down on the book shelves to access a secret passage in that will allow you to reach the book.( An Agatha Christie - obviously)

Oh, that small switch wasn't so easy to spot. Thank you, vimmers. :)

Burning platforms

Post by PeterH » 23 Jul 2015 10:45

I am stuck trying to do this from the walk-through
Quickly turn right a bit and side jump to the last platform, a right curved running jump up into the open gate.
After the side jump, Lara is with the gate to her right. Should she hop back to the wall to get a running start? In this case I cannot make her jump that curvy?!
Or should she turn to face the gate and make a left curved jump - that is not in accordance with the instructions and it takes too much time to line her up properly.

Or should she turn more right before side jumping to save the hop back on the last platform? But then she lands short of the platform.

Maybe there is a same game with Lara safely in the gate?

Pull a js to open 2 doors and jump down into pool. Then open another door. Lastly got a police walkie-talkie. What to do next?

Tak for hurtig dåd - I did not know you also command written Danish :2thumbsup:

Now that I am finished with the level I want to give some feed-back.

First and foremost, I like that you chose a stealth mission with the crossbow and a magic carpet in lieu of a car.
Most levels are made by expert raiders and can only be played by other experts and have an abundance of death traps and mortal enemies.
This is different - except for the burning platforms and electrified water. Maybe their completion was not necessary in order to find the guilty party? In that case: my apologies.

The crowbar replaced by a lock pick?! A necessary replacement for a stealth mission except the animation shows a crowbar in action :D
The car replaced by a magic carpet?! Again, the animation shows it to be a lie but the experience of a stealthy carpet was actually breathtaking. Do magic carpets crash and burn? I did not know that.

Kudos for not using a lot of otherwise overused TRLE moves and actions:

Inexplicable timed runs - yours make sense.
Climbing ropes
Tightropes
Swimming timed runs.
All the weird new moves of TRLE Next Gen. My least favorite is when Lara hangs from her fingertips and still manages to leap three meters in the air.

This is just for fun: In the earliest danger electric water room, after I jump to the flat ledge, I didn't see the monkey swing ceiling. Instead, I side jump left and forward and jump to and fro to left until I am at very left position. Then I do a jump forward left to land on far left slope and a hard curving right to land at the upper ledge on left wall.

ahh, you can shoot the rope and collect it from the boiler room below.
I think that's what I'm trying to find, the walk says "Get back out (NE) the same way you came in and turn right and jump to the ledge next to the wall. At the end jump to the slope on the right; slide/jump (with Ctrl) into the entrance." - I have no idea where this is, is this back to the top of the monkey swing above the electrified sloped room? After shooting the rope it releases a lot of hornets which the walk doesn't mention - I guess I have to outrun them?

shooting the rope is not what releases hornets, I think.
Getting close to that box where they seem to have their nest will repeatedly make some come out and attack.

I try to get away from their nest and only then shoot the ones that followed.

And yes, back down into the room with electrified water.
Standing on top of the monkeyswing get moving into the direction where you'd expect the rope to have fallen.

Iirc. it is a jump to a platform attached to that wall where Lara just descended onto the monkeyswing, and from there to the slope-ish base of one of these pillars, from where Lara will jump off into the door to the boiler room, where there then the rope is lying on the floor. Not sure anymore, but maybe it can't be seen from lying amongst some piping on the floor or so.

After that Lara must get up to the hornet's attic once again :D and take the (other) exit.

----------------------
I'll try to find some pictures.

Edit : OK, the only picture I found that shows the elctrified room with things on display is this one.
( I do not have the game installed anymore.)
hope it helps anyway.

Thanks Snork :)

Shooting that rope releases a swarm of hornets and there are too many to shoot. That's why I had trouble as I was trying to flee but didn't know where to go - managed to shake them in the attic and am moving on :2thumbsup:
