View Full Version : How to use the rope

18-11-03, 19:17
I don't manage to use the rope, at level OLD MILL. Can you explain what key(s) to use to move forwards and backwards ? I know how to turn, climb up and down, but not how to acquire momentum.

Hi the roper, welcome to the forum! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif
To swing the rope, press "sprint" (button left to the Right-Shift). ;)

And make sure you slide to the bottom of the rope (with the down arrow) for more momentum!

Oops ! :D
You know what ? I just didn't know that key before. Didn't know we could Sprint when running.
I'm sure it will be useful in the future.

Thx a lot http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif (It's been very fast you answer my post)

Welcome to the forum http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif Ugh....that ropeswing is a nightmare....took me ages to manage it. And when I got to Red Alert, it still took me dozens of tries before I could make it :rolleyes:

I got stuck on The Last Revelation, First level for two weeks http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/yikes.gif because I didn't knew how to swing. :D

Works very well, now I know.
'ts a real pleasure to make young Lara swing !
What a community, this forum ! I wouldn't have expected so many answer in just a few minutes. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/clown.gif

Now I'm wondering:
What is it really for, to be able to sprint ?
I've come to the 10th level without knowing it !
Is it useful, practically ? Do u use it ?

Thx for the many http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif s

You can use sprint on timed runs.
If there's a door that is slowly closing, you can somersault under it (press jump while sprinting). ;)

At certain points, where you have only a limited time to get across a hallway and such, like if the floor is collapsing or someone is following you, it makes Lara run a lot faster and increases the gap between her and the possible enemies. You'll get to use it a lot at the VCI levels....good luck with the raiding http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif :D

And you can also sprint if you're found in a room with, let's say, poison gas, and you want to get out quickly. ;)
