Default short jump

Level 5 of Angle of Death.
The jump from grate to grate is way too far to make. Is there a special way to make a long running jump? The controls page says to push forward and jump?
I tried sprint and she makes a great swan dive.

Maybe I'm misunderstanding but why is this in Technical Support and what particular TR game/level are you playing?

"Angle of Death" meaning Angel of Darkness?

More information needed.

As a general rule about long jumps in the Core era games you need to hop back then run, press jump at the edge and release. She'll then make the longest jump possible although there are some small modifiers.

If the distance is too great then use Action just before landing and she'll grab the edge of the platform or ledge.

But until we know which game/level/exact location you're referring too specific advice is impossible.

The forum is confusing to me but I started a new string. I'm playing Angel of Death at Level 5 as I stated. The old run and jump doesn't apply in this game. I did what the controls page said and the jump is way to short to even grasp at the end of the jump. This appears to be a bug to me.

Maybe you're jumping to the wrong place?

Have you tried looking at a walkthrough?

I still have no idea which specific TR game is being referred too.

Can anyone enlighten me?

This thread is extremely confusing. Which game are you talking about? And which level?

"Angel of Death" makes me think you're talking about Angel of Darkness, and from the thread title I assume you want to know how to do a "short" jump. It's not possible to do a short jump in the firsy 5 games, but in Angel of Darkness you can press Walk + Jump + Forward to perform a short jump.

Hope this helps.

It was suggested that it was Angel of Darkness to the OP in my first reply but he seems adamant it is Angle(sic) of Death.

I'd bet it is Angel of Darkness level 5 - Parisian Ghetto. There are 'gratings' over the pipes above the Metro carriage soon after the start.

I do not think it is a short jump issue as Cobra said LC could not do the jump because the it is "too far too make".

If it is where I suggested then the long jump and grab from 2'10" > in this YT guide means my earlier advice should be applicable.

You're all correct. It apparently is a bug. I downloaded some saved games and the jump worked fine.

So it was Angel Of Darkness, Parisian Ghetto as I suggested.

It is a buggy game but I've not read reports about any particular problem there.
