Hi Elen,

Guess what, i have just finished Recon Labs 3, it took me 4.33 minuets to complete. You know in the zip file, there is a bonus level file. You need 2 pieces of the password to unzip it. The passwords are in the game, i only found the 2nd one. Please help me find the first one.

Hi Colin...
I have a problem with the level I downloaded. I click on the SetUp and it doesn't do anything. It says: "Stan: Instalowanie AUDIO..." It just stucks at 0% :confused: I don't know what's going on... Maybe I had a bad downloading... Don't tell me that I have to download it again... :(

I noticed the Bonus in zip file and indeed it asks for a password...

ELEN

This is not a bad download, this happened to me. Try to unzip it with winzip wizard and keep trying, it with eventually unzip. Keep me posted.

09-12-02, 18:06
Ok Colin... I'll unzip it as you say... I'll try it now...

ELEN
09-12-02, 18:23
Ok... Let's say that I make it... Do I have to wait at the "Stan: Instalowanie AUDIO..." message or the installation starts immediately??

Why he didn't give the files??? I could it manually... :D http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif

Colin125
09-12-02, 18:30
If next to STAN it say's gotowe! then its installed. Put your mouse over the word to see.

ELEN
09-12-02, 18:54
I only see "Instalowanie AUDIO..." Do I have to see something else except 0% ?? I mean, it may says 0% but it intalls the level?? Do I have to wait although it says 0% ?? Will I see something else except 0% ???

Oh my God... I can't believe what I'm asking... :(

Want me to upload this level to the server packed with FlyDrive?

Colin125
09-12-02, 19:01
If it still say's Instalowanie AUDIO do it again, until you see the level being installed. Yes it will say 0% at the end. Do you want me to send you an email to show you what i mean?

ELEN
09-12-02, 19:13
Yes tlr... :( Thanks...

Colin, just from curiosity... Can you send them??

Hey... So quickly??? :D LOL...
I'm downloading it now... Thank you VERY MUCH tlr...

Elen have you downloaded the level yet...

Do you remember what I told you last night?? :( That I was going to download it this morning because of my band??? I'll do it tomorrow morning because I tried while I was posting my previous thread and it was VERY slow :( I'm sorry...

Colin125
09-12-02, 21:20
Sorry, i forgot. See you tomorrow Elen

Hi Colin...
I downloaded the level from the link that tlr posted before. I tried to unzip it and I got an error message which said that I had to download this level again. Can you believe it??? :( Tlr send me the level via email. The bad thing is that the level is now 28MB (don't ask me why) and I'm downloading it now... Wait for me please... I don't know what is going to happen but I'm gonna play this damn level...

Merry Christams Colin http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/xmas1.gif

ELEN
11-12-02, 16:55
Of course I made a mistake. The file isn't 28MB... It's just 20MB... It was early in the morning when I saw it... And I noticed my mistake as I'm downloading the level now... Maybe I can't read well in the morning... :D :D

Colin125
11-12-02, 17:31
Hi Elen,

Good Luck on downloading the level and tell me when you have.

Hi Elen,

I'm so happy you got the level working, so tell me was it everything you were expecting.

12-12-02, 11:41
Hi Colin...
Now that I have (finally :D ) installed the level, I want to ask you something regarding the passwords... Will I collect something that writes the passwords or I have to be careful while playing (eg maybe it's written on a texture). I'm asking 'cause you have already found one...

Colin125
12-12-02, 11:52
Elen,

The 2nd password i found was a secret, maybe the first one is too. Once you found one it will have half of the password. If you can't find it i will tell you where it is or give it to you directly. If you want. By the way Elen, Merry Christmas.

ELEN
12-12-02, 11:57
Oh... So you find two pieces and combining them you see the whole "word-password", right?? What's the second one you found? I mean, what does it write??

Colin125
12-12-02, 11:59
Elen, do you want to know the second password.

http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/xmas3.gif http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/xmas2.gif http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/xmas1.gif

ELEN
12-12-02, 12:10
I'm sorry, I thought that there was just one password. I also thought that you find two pieces and each piece writes the half of the word. And I thought (again) that you have found the second half of the word. The reason I asked you was just to know the second half of the word and when I find the first one I could tell you before I finish the level (or at least I could guess). Tell me this... Are there two "word-passwords" or just one which is divided into two pieces??? :confused:

Colin125
12-12-02, 12:16
Yes, there's only one password split in to 2 pieces. This level is the most hardest i played.

http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/xmas3.gif :D http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/xmas1.gif

ELEN
12-12-02, 12:20
Give me the damn second piece of word Colin :D If I'll find the first one I'll tell you before I finish the level. There's no reason to wait for me so long... You can Private Message me if you want not to tell it here...

VIDEOMAN

Hi folks--- I just started-- so far so good http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/xmas1.gif

ELEN
14-12-02, 19:47
Excellent Videoman... :D Keep up... http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/xmas3.gif

Colin, I have found the second piece in the dark maze. I searched every corner of it following the map but I didn't find the first one. I even print out the map... I'm in Hard Core level. I jump from rope to rope (you know) :D

Colin125
14-12-02, 20:40
Well done for the password, It took me a while to do the rope to rope thing. And it get's harder.

Good Luck

ELEN
14-12-02, 21:01
Well done?? I found the same piece as you :( You had to see me when I found the Access Card. I thought it was the other piece and when I stopped this thing I saw that it wasn't... :D

VIDEOMAN
19-12-02, 20:45
G'Day--- I'm in four wheel drive and still chugging! Thanx Elen for helping me over the rough terrain when my game glitches. Four wheeling in our mountains here seems less difficult LOL. ;)

ELEN
19-12-02, 20:58
Any time Videoman ;)
I have stopped playing the level for a while but I'm gonna restart it soon... I'm a little bit exhausted as it's a long custom level...

VIDEOMAN
20-12-02, 07:58
Hi Elen---- I am having a terrible time in the Deep Darkness. I found and pushed two buttons which I believe opened the blue glass door near the entrance (maybe?) but I keep running in circles and can't seem to get back near the beginning. I have not noticed any connection between the map and anywhere I am. From the room with the steps and the button at the top of the steps I can not find the corridor that I came through to get there. Did you pass this area? Am I at least on the right track? Boy are my eyes tired!! Any help? :D

ELEN
20-12-02, 20:43
Oh Videoman... You are not going to believe what I did... I print out the map and I was deleting all the areas I had been... I couldn't use the map from the inventory and I can understand why you are confused.

The two pink spots in the map show the location of two switches. Each switch opens a blue door. The one blue door has the Access Card and the other blue door reveals an opening which connects two parts of the maze. Just imagine that the maze is splited in to two parts and this door connects them... This means that you have to throw both of the switches :(

As far as I can remeber, the map has a grey spot which shows the location of the second password... I have passed this level (the maze is one level :eek: ) and I'm in the next level...

VIDEOMAN
21-12-02, 01:33
Elen--- Can you tell me how to print out the map? Or could you send me a copy of your printout? I pushed the two switches but I can not find the "connecting" corridor to the other side of the maze. I'm going stir crazy :eek: :eek:

ELEN
21-12-02, 06:10
I have a piece of paper in front of me which has the map but it's full on notes... Ok, I entered the inventory, I highlighted the map, I pressed the <Print Scrn> button and I pasted the pic in Photoshop. But you can use the Paint Program of Windows and print out the map...

If you see the map, you'll see the red spot from where you entered the maze. On the left side there is a really small pink spot. This is the "connecting" door...

But I don't have any problem posting my map...

VIDEOMAN
21-12-02, 20:13
Thanx Elen---- I'll give this a try tonight after "work" http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/xmas3.gif

VIDEOMAN
28-12-02, 21:35
Hi Elen---- Long time no "see" http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif I hope you had a good Holiday. For four nights I have been playing "Alice through the looking glass" In the level with the "mirror" room and the many doors. I succeded turning all the switches I could find red. But I can not open many of the doors. If there is a sequence to the switches, it eludes me. :confused: Have you conquered this area? Can you help? :D Thanx. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

VIDEOMAN
31-12-02, 01:43
Six days and counting--- Still stuck in the "mirror room" area. I hope my game has not glitched again :mad:

VIDEOMAN
03-01-03, 01:44
I finally escaped from the "mirror room" area with the many doors and buttons.What a confusing area :eek: Now I am searching for where to use the "restricted area access disk". Elen--- are you still monitoring this thread? I haven't heard form you in 12 days. :confused:

ELEN
03-01-03, 20:19
WOW!!! I think I live under the rocks... I can't believe I missed this thread for so many days...

I'm sorry Videoman :( I can't recall the level :( It's a long time since I have finished it and I have played other custom levels and my head is full of keys, places, artifacts, doors and disks. Maybe Colin could help????

12 days??? WOW!!! Do you count them??? :D :D LOL... I'm kidding of course... :D

Colin125
03-01-03, 21:06
Hi VIDEOMAN,

Are you talking about Recon Labs 3 or another level. :confused:

ELEN
03-01-03, 22:20
Yeap... He is talking about this level...

VIDEOMAN
03-01-03, 23:56
My dear Elen--- Of course I count the days. I miss you when you leave me all alone in the vastness of TR. The mirror area with the many rooms and buttons (where Colin said he was having trouble) was a doozey! The ceremony area was also a challenge :eek: How much more is ahead after the Ceremony area? I haven't found the second password yet. If i don't find it could you or Colin send me the bonus level?. We were supposed to compare notes, Elen but you are so much faster than I am that you are already finished. I only get about three hours a day to play and when you did not reply to my emails I remained "stuck" at times. The level is quite good and I am looking forward to finishing it and the bonus level.Thanx to you and Colin for responding. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif

ELEN
04-01-03, 06:13
Mails?? What mails??? :confused:

I didn't find the second password :( but if you find it I'll send you the bonus level... http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

VIDEOMAN
04-01-03, 07:40
Elen--- you did not get the emails I sent to you? You had said that we could compare our progress in this level so I was emailing you to let you know where I was. I don't know why they did not get to you. :rolleyes: Anyway, I am so unceremoniously and totally stuck in the ceremony area :mad: If you or Colin remember the place that I am stuck I think only a savegame after this area would help me. I ran through the spikes around the corner--- through the sphincter like blades and down the ramp with the spiked boulder that crushes Lara every time. I can not jump over the boulder or even see anywhere else to jump. Is there much to the level past this point? Can you help me? :( Thanx.

Colin125
04-01-03, 10:49
Hi VideoMan,

You are on the last level, are you at the bit where you have to grab the rope. :confused: If you are, this is what you have to do. Dash down the corridor with the spikes and the take your finger of the dash button to go around the corner and then dash again through the blades (hopefully you wont lose to much health) and down the slope. The bounder will be triggered but keep dashing to the end and when your almost near, let go of dash and get ready to jump and grab (make shore you are in the middle of the slope). When you have got the rope slide to the bottom. and then swing to the ledge with the ladder. while on the ledge quickly grab and climb the ladder or the spikes underneath you will kill you. when you are at the top, SAVE if there is no danger around you. My suggestions to you is save twice, once at the beginning of the spikes and again at the top of the ledge. If this sounds unclear or you are not talking about this bit of the level, maybe the wonderful Elen could help.

;)

ELEN
04-01-03, 14:38
The wonderful Elen can't remeber the level very well because she finished the level a long time ago and has already played many other custom levels. She is sorry about this and she is sure that Videoman will find his way with Colin's help...

04-01-03, 19:11
Colin--- thanx for the help! Yes I am in the area you described. I broke down running over the spikes into two saves, one at the circular blades and the other at the ramp with the spiked boulder.I can not out run the boulder from the second save so I will try from the circular blades. I hope it is not necessary to do it all in one continuous motion, it took me over two hours already! I never saw the rope since the view switches to a distant arial view and the brown of the rope blends into the red of the background.Thanx to you I will keep trying, I was about to give up :eek:

VIDEOMAN
07-01-03, 08:19
Colin--- I sent you a private message explaining my bieng stuck in the room with the winged dude and his four henchmen. I hope you get it since this is the first time I have used this method of communication. I don't even know where to look for your reply if you send one. :confused:

Draco
07-01-03, 08:22
In your Profile lies the answer...

VIDEOMAN
07-01-03, 21:24
Thanx Draco--I found the message where you said it would be-- Colin-- I am stuck on the platform one level up from the bottom of the room directly across the room from a platform with a switch. On my right is an opening blocked by a grate. I suppose the switch opens the grate? I can not get any further than the platform. Is there an "invisible" platform I must jump to? I can see many transparent platforms but I can not get to any of them.The top of the room is a long way up still.

Colin125
07-01-03, 21:31
Yes, there is an invisible platform, try using a flare or even better use your binoculars and press action, you should see the platform in front of you.

:D :D

VIDEOMAN
08-01-03, 05:33
I used the binoculars to get to the platform that I am on but using them shows anomalous platforms that are not there, or at least, can not be accessed. Very confusing :confused:

Colin125
08-01-03, 08:49
Just look for the one in front of you, it should be one jump away, between the platform your standing on with the grate door and the platform with the switch which opens the door. Keep trying VideoMan, I really want you to complete this level, it seem such a shame to give up now, you are almost there.

VIDEOMAN
08-01-03, 20:57
Colin--- I made it to the top of the room but I do not have the two articles to put in the receptacles which I believe will open the final? door. One level below with the 4 ropes has two doors which remained locked. Maybe the articles are in there? I have not found any way to open these doors. If the articles are not there or I can not open the doors, then I have a big problem because I can not go back very far. I haven't given up (yet). This whole level has been unbelievably difficult :eek:

VIDEOMAN

Colin-- I made it to the top room but I do not have the two articles to put in the receptacles which I suppose will open the final(?) door.The room below with the four ropes has two doors that remain locked.

Colin125
09-01-03, 08:46
Go to each last square of both receptacle platforms facing inwards and that should open the doors below. which have the two stars.

I hope this makes sense

VIDEOMAN
10-01-03, 00:03
Wow!--- Thanx Colin. I must have done this 100 times and never thought it would open the doors below. I was too busy dodging the white flying things. I will try my best tonight. I appreciate you hanging in there with me, it's been a difficult level. :D

VIDEOMAN
10-01-03, 08:28
Colin-- after 3 1/2 hours I finally am at the place to pick up the stars for the openings, but :eek: after trying every maneuver I know, I can not pick up the stars. After throwing the levers, as soon as Lara pulls up to the ledge she burns up immediately as she stands up :confused:

VIDEOMAN
12-01-03, 08:45
I just completed Recon Labs 3. What an adventure!! I did not find either password however. Can anyone send me the bonus level before I download another level? I would greatly appreciate this. ;) Thanx.

Colin125
12-01-03, 09:00
Congratulations. :D You do know the bonus level zip is in the Recon Labs 3 zip file. You need 2 pieces of one password to open it. Elen and I only found the second piece, I can send you it in a PM if you want.

This level was hard for me too, thank god I completed it.

:D :D

ELEN
12-01-03, 11:40
Congratulations Videoman... You need both of the passwords in order to access the bonus level. Do you still want me to send it to you?? http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

VIDEOMAN
12-01-03, 18:23
If you guys didn't find both passwords, I guess I'm out of luck since I couldn't find either one. :( Any suggestions for another level that is not as difficult as this one???

Oh... Come on Colin... Let him take a break from the VCI kind levels :D

Videoman try Dark Skies (http://www.tombraiderchronicles.com/trle/0561.html) and don't forget that you can refer in our Dark Skies Forum (http://www.tombraiderchronicles.com/cgi-bin/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic;f=13;t=001688) http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif
