I got the silver ball but what is it for? The Raising Block behind sank before I used it. :confused:

Its alright. Texturing is OK.

Why in your games tho are there always impossible jumps?

God Horus
24-08-09, 23:31
A PH level isn't a PH level without impossible jumps, poleropes and sexy animations :ohn:

but what do i do with the crank?

use it on the well (the nub) and after the lovely animation, take the key from the bucket. and no I do not know why a crank was in a hole covered by what I believe to be a shell.

Finished. Have you played your level after you built it?

24-08-09, 23:59
Just an idea...jump? XD J/K maybe you can grab the ledge at the bottom and jump backwards at the bottom? :/

Shoot the shell first, get the crank to get the key...More will follow :)

Kapu

EDIT: PH, I'm getting sick of the game crashing everytime I die. Can you fix the load camera coordinates and the release the updated script files?

*PH*
25-08-09, 12:59
@Kevin
of course i tested it:confused:
just jump over the spikes and grab the ledge (timing is a bit hard though)

@matrix
wheres ur problem getting into the crawlspace? just shoot the blocking object and u can get in

ggctuk
25-08-09, 13:01
Do you use the same key in each game for DOZY? I bumped the Q button in game and it activated the flycheat. I'm sure that wasn't supposed to be left activated though.

TR FAN 18
25-08-09, 13:02
I've used the key and then pulled a switch to open a door and there's several bolts of lightning. I cannot see what to do. I found some arrows and thats it.

*PH*
25-08-09, 13:03
go through the lightning and light the object at the other side

Kevin
25-08-09, 13:07
@ PH
I tried several times to jump but as soon as I grab the ledge the spikes beneath are killing me. It is impossible this way.

The reason I asked if you played it is because there are a few serious bugs (At the end I still had the silver ball in my inventory, Timed jump switch doesn't reset -> Dead End) which could have been avoided easily.

*PH*
25-08-09, 13:11
ooh the jumpswitch
i had the resetting before
i replaced before the final converting
i forgot tht this doesnt reset
ill change that for trle.net

about the menu crashing
the script has the correct loading coordinates
when you start it shows the correct picture
i dontknow whats wrong

ggctuk
25-08-09, 13:14
Outfit inconsistency, or animation inconsistency, most probably.

*PH*, the game crashes when the Lara dies, it is because of the introductory cut sequence. You need to put it at the beginning of the level, not in place of the title flyby.
:(

Otherwise, you should have done it as proper title flyby... (that is less than ideal when the level is part of a larger project, as this is.)
As long as it is triggered to start when the program opens, it will crash the game on death.

I like the wall jumps. :D

*PH*

i think i used a theme you made (kiko sent me) or i confused the audio files

about the title

its a FMV

1upMushroom
25-08-09, 20:45
about the title
the intro cutscene is NOT the title
its a FMV

I know that. And it is crashing the game.

***
After I landed in a wall after letting go of a rope, I am not playing this level anymore.
Sorry. :(
When Lara can swing a full 8 ft inside of a wall, (not just that she can do so, but she has to as a necessary part of a timed run) and the game crashes each time it goes out to the start menu, I have to stop playing.

This level just feels like it has not been fully tested.
It looks very nice, and general gameplay is good, but it needs finishing off.

You really should redesign the rope room so that she doesn't swing inside of the wall,
Put the FMV at the beginning of play rather than at the beginning of the title,
And edit the script so that key objects have names.
There are lines in the sky. :confused: You need to rotate the textures on the horizon so that they flow evenly.

I am not trying to be harsh, or mean. If I released a level with things like this, that is what people would tell me.

This level has many good things, it is quite gorgeous, it seems well thought out, just iron out the minor mistakes, and it will be awesome. :D
It has the potential to be awesome, but it is not quite there yet. Seeing the level you have built here, I know that you can turn it into a completely awesome project. Yes, you can! :D

*PH*
25-08-09, 21:08

The story is based on Lara's past, when she is still young and at that time she didn't have the modern high-tech gear. At least that's how I explain it :p

How do I do this?

There are two kind of squares in the room. The lower ones are dangerous, That's where the lightning strikes. The higher ones are safe. The lighting usually strikes twice at the same place. Just time the strikes, wait for the second strike to clear off and do a standing jump to the next higher square.

scremanie
27-08-09, 05:00
OMG!

I am stuck :(

I can not make that timed door. The one where you have to pull the switch and then make your way up with the bars and the jump of the vine!! every time I get to the vine, the door shuts! I have been trying for at least 40 minutes, trying to save every second, and saving and reloading at certain points to beat it, but I just cant :( its impossible! My hands are all sweaty from gripping the controller so tight :(

Does anyone have a savegame file that loads JUST after that door/gate? If not, can some one make one for me :D

I fail :o

27-08-09, 15:00
Well here's my mini review, I finished it and it was alright. The new moves were great and enjoyable, as well as the animations. It started off good, but idk what happened. It was fun but some parts were just so frustrating and I thought at one point, that maybe you didn't test that part of the level out and maybe you made the jump too big for us or something. Like it's just a ton of little bugs and things which could have been improved, I saw you have a 5 rating for this on TRLE, I think it deserves something maybe a bit higher but I agree with all of the points in your first review (by Spike) It was fun though, just some problems that got in the way. And what was up with that horizon! I swear TRAR has a horizon curse if you look at the top of the horizon, you see that some textures are rotated wrongly :vlol: But that ok it wasn't that huge!

I really like your levels PH but after Wheels of Kathar and Myths 2 I felt that everything was just the same old same old. Pole ropes, new fancy moves everywhere, and average texturing and lighting with alright FMV's and story telling.

And I rarely ever find secrets in your levels, do you place them, because in this level I didn't find anything :o

*PH*
27-08-09, 16:30
i dont like secrets, and i usually dont include
wheels of kathar also had none, myths 2 had some though
the level was made 1,5 years ago and only revised a bit, because i wanted to havent made it for nothing
and i am releasing my levels which were in process a bit fast atm because in 2 days ill leave for england for some months (college exchange) and wont have any time also after cause i have to still do the same stuff from my shcool here too at the same time

i was a bit disappointed with spikes review because he gave me a 5 on texturing , and i think th etexturing in the outside was really good
i used big textures (divided to 16! textures) and also mirrored, so there really wasnt any wallpering out there, but he can write what he thinks:)

30-08-09, 14:43
Okay here goes my review:

As a prequel to TRAR2 I was expecting something in the lines of what you did.

Environment
- I really liked the atmosphere at the beginning, the rain, the horizon, it was nice.

Weapons
- I don't know if there's anything other than the very nice bow, which I liked although being a weak weapon. If it's a prequel to TRAR2 which most likely starts in St. Francis ' Folly, why doesn't she carry the dual pistols and the shotgun from the previous levels ? It's not like she lost them at Natla's Technologies.

Outfit
- The oufit was rather nice but what happened to her classic outfit ?

Animation
- I loved the wall jump, it was better than the one from TRAR. However I disliked the swinging pole animations this time. Why does she have to stop when jumping at the pole ? Why can't she just swing. Sometimes Lara would just pass by the pole as if it was invisible. Pressing ALT GR to jump from the pole when not swinging causes Lara to do an akward jump :confused:
Balacing on top of poles was hard to do I really understand but you should never implement something that is buggy. I was swimming and when I got out I ended up on top of the pole like magic.
Was the ladder animaiton changed ? Because I noticed that her legs do akward positions as if they were broken.

Textures
- I found no problem with them.

Gameplay
- While puzzles were great there was something annoying with that timed door and it was due to a thing that I dislike and it starts to get repetitive.
Basing the difficulty on game glitches isn't the sort of game that a player is looking for. The timed door was hard because of the poles. There are other examples of difficulty based on glitches and animation but I don't want to mention. And there was a collumn with invisible floor around :ton:
I ended up cheating (Q) to get past the timed door, but the glitches at the pool with the vertical poles just made me quit. I didn't finish it, sorry :o

Soundtrack: good, textures: good, outfit: nice, weapons: nice, environment: atmospheric, animation: disapointing, gameplay: average.

6/10

P.S. In beginning of the FMV it says 1990 if I'm not mistaken, wasn't it supposed to be 1996 or is this level something else ? :p
