I'm about to give up this game. Since it's way to difficult to finish it when the camera view is stuck at the front of the character frown

Hi Smiley ,

Is it stuck in front all of the time or just in certain areas ? Maybe there is a button you can push to change the veiw . I know the camera was a little screwy in the PS2 version , but never got stuck that way . Sound like it may be a glitch .

Sometimes when a game isn't fun anymore, you just have to give it up. They're supposed to be games as in fun, not as an added headache. frown

about half way through the Bio - Research Facility the camera got stuck at the front of Lara, and it's been there so far (being at Aquatic Research Area) frown

Smiley456, you might want to go to www.tombraiders.net/stella and download a saved game if you get really frustrated with the game.

I just started playing Tombraider 2 and am about to start Level 3. Had great fun with the speed boat! lol lol

Only problem I am having is I can't play the opening sequence and none of the FMVs. Other than that the game is running OK.

Hi Gerry ,

Why can't you see the cutscenes ? Do you get an error message or does the game just skip them ?

Except for AOD, all the other TR games skipped FMV's on my machine too.

I'm thinking that might be because you need to install the older version of Quicktime that the game uses . However , I'm not sure about that .

You may want to post in the Glitches forum and someone there might be able to help you fix it . smile

I'll sure second that statement! thumbsup When it becomes not fun anymore, it's time to move on to the next game.

Surely you guys can't mean that one should give up at the first sign of frustration . I think one should rise to the challenge . I've only had to give up on one game because I couldn't beat the final boss , BUT not until I attempted it about 50 times . I was steaming mad at the developers of that game for not putting checkpoints or quick saves in their very lengthy missions.

We're talking about fun Robert. When it is not fun anymore, it is time to move on. They're games. smile

I hear ya Rusty wave . But you would agree that sometimes they become difficult and frustrating wouldn't you ? . Is your position that one should move on when it gets that way ?

Well, everyone has a different tolerance for frustration. If it gets so frustrating that it is no longer any fun, then yes it's time to move on. That is my personal opinion, of course. Some people might like the frustration, I don't know. I'd rather have fun. thumbsup

Ah , Ok . So what your saying is that someone could be frustrated ( maybe even angry ) at a game and still be having fun at the same time . Ok , now I get it , and your right . I don't think I would care for a game that doesn't tick me off at some point . So when I get ticked off , I know I'm having fun . It's really ironic , but in a strange way it makes sense . Thank you for clearing it up for me . thumbsup
