The PC controls for PoP are reasonable, though different from what I was used to before.

The difference between PoP (with it's initially difficult controls) and Indy (with it's initially difficult controls) was that PoP was engaging right from the get-go!

Completely unlike Indy.

If I can't begin to get the hang of a control system within half an hour, - something is wrong (possibly with me, of course); people have been taking about changing the control settings, whilst playing, so that they can do different puzzles - that's just not right!

In the case of Indy, I just didn't feel drawn in by the game itself, and the controls just got in the way.

YMMV.

I have heard quite a few people, now, say that POP is wonderful. I can't wait to pick it up too smile

Where did you guys find the cheat codes for Indy and the Tomb?

I've looked every where!

I believe I've played the bit before the crocodiles in the water 25 times. And I hate starting over and beating up on the three thugs at the bridge another time.

I woke up this morning thinking about those cheats laugh Tried to remember what I did. I believe this is what I did:
Go to:
C/program files/lucas arts/indiana jones and the emperors tomb/game data/default.cfg
Open "default.cfg" with notepad and add the line "cheat:1" just below "nocontrol:1". It should look like this (be sure to backup your file first "just in case"):
pack:0
title:0
freescenedata:1
vsyncinterval:2
milessound:1
nocontrol:1
cheats:1
resmgrload:res.dat
fullscreen:1

I don't remember where I found the cheats; just did a search on Alta Vista.com. Indy will not take any damage but if he falls from too great a distance, he will die. You need to quit and restart if that happens because he will just lie there forever, haha.

Hope you found the cheats ok.

Gremlin, what does YMMV mean? (I'm sorry if this is a stupid question).

Not a stupid question at all, CLare.

It's used to indicate that your experience might differ from mine. I often use it when commenting on something that's particularly subjective... like the quality of computer games smile

I love that Gremlin; fits lots situations smile

That is how the cheats work. Found my notes on them and have put them into my Indy box. I am going to have to undo the cheats for the level I'm on though...Emperor's Tomb. When Indy dies you have to quit and restart your saved game instead of the game handling it and he dies a lot, haha.

Does anyone know why there are so many saved game slots but I can only save in the one slot that I started in? I almost overwrote it (talk about a heart attack) and don't want to do that again.
