OK this is getting me down. What button press is the little blue icon of Lara with her guns out supposed to represent in this cut scene? It sure as hell doesn't appear to be the lock on or fire buttons.

I've tried so many different combinations of buttons and she still gets squashed by that boulder everytime.

In this case: it means run, jump, run, duck and run again (if I'm thinking about the right thing here). It took me a couple of tries too that 1.

Good luck.

wow! you got it in just a couple of tries??

I've been stuck at this point for about 16 hours and Lara is dead before I get any response from any key press. If I do get her to run it is only straight into the middle of the spears, and there's nowhere to jump to.

LOL,

I was thinking it was just a specific button press, as has previously been the case in cut scenes with x or o for example. I hadn't even tried running through and jumping/ducking the spears. Now why did they feel the need to put an icon on screen to tell me to avoid getting killed? If it had never appeared I would have just run and jumped and ducked until I got it right rather than standing still like a lemon and trying to find the right button to press!

Thanks

Yeah, I think it was about the fifth time I made it. Anyway, when the movie sequence of the rolling boulder is still playing, keep walking to the upper right (which is D and W or arrow-right and arrow-up by default) and don't forget to jump as soon as you see her walking.

Then, immediately after that (if you don't want to get squashed by the boulder), keep walking to the upper left (which is A and W or arror-left and arrow-up by default) and then duck (F by default). After that, keep walking to the upper right again (or else you'll be walking against the wall and die) and if its good, you'll make it then.

That's how I did it.

RE: West Africa - Rolling Boulder Cut Scene

the icon of lara holding the guns just means you need to run not to get killed, it happens once or twice more in the game i think, also in the peru level when she gets chased by the monster... has nothing to do with shooting :P kinda confusing tho

Im stuck in Ghana

Im stuck in the chamber with the damn in it.

What I have done so far in the chamber is to work my way all the way around it twice and I have activated both of the buttons on the floor and the platforms adjacent to them has turned around. I have also tried to grapple the cog thing on the statue on the wall between the two revolving platforms.

Im just not sure what else to do or which part of the chamber im supposed to do it in. Ive explored the water too and found the silver secret but I dont know how to get the damn open.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Let me guess it had no effect.

This is the spot where you can push a crate onto the trigger pad on the right, correct? But on the left there is no crate. Just this annoying flip-platform between the trigger and the statue.

You have to stand on the trigger yourself. The statue then opens it's arms and you can pull out the trigger on the statue, but only at this moment. When you leave the platform the left arm will slowly close again, so hurry. Jump onto the flipping platform when it turns for the first time and immediately jump before you are pushed off on the other side.

After finding James Rutland's expedition....

....in Ghana, West Africa

Lara and Zip talk about this pillar thing....there are these two pillars, one standing, and one bent.


I'm supposed to move the bent one, right? How do I do that??

Are you talking about the ones at the waterwheel?

You can either use the rope to swing against it, or you can use the machine gun turret.

RE: suck

this is what i did but i dunno if i didnt it entirely fairly [hehe]

1) turn the thignies so the big block falls off

2) jump to the other side and put the block onto the switch releasing one of the arms

3) jump back to the other side and stand on the switch

4) use the turning platforms to jump across and pull the arms down before the handcuff closes again (it goes really slowly)

i hope that helps

use the turret to fire at the pillar that is standing up, it will fall over and break both pillars releasing the water wheel

The important bit is standing on the other switch and then hurrying back to the middle before the other strap closes again.
