Well, I picked up the mallet/club thing but have no idea where the dice are and keep getting killed. I'm about to give up on this game. I can't get past this level in the skool. I find it very annoying to have to start it over every time. I thought the booklet said you can save but you can't! It wouldn't be so bad if I wasn't getting dizzy. Then to top it all off, I also started playing URU last week. Didn't realize it has jumping in it. Might be giving up on that game too!

Some of those Uru jumps are hard, but I did them so I know you can too. luck

Thanks for the vote of confidence looney4labs. I will keep trying with both games but I think they will not be the only games I'm playing. I will have to just go back to them for short periods of time. I do like both games but the motion sickness and frustration just don't make me have that "I can't wait to get home and play" feeling.

OK... finally had some time and loaded up this game on my Windows 8. Just got to the place where I have to jump across the moving checkerboard to get to the other side. Think I've died at least 10 times already!

EDIT: And you can save any time.. not sure why you're having problems there. Finally got through to the other side... Hopefully, I will get to the Skool soon!

Well, what am I doing wrong with the save? I escape to the save/load menu, then what? Am I supposed to be pressing the save button and then the picture will change to show where I'm at? It is the picture I think that keeps confusing me. It shows where I started and I think it is just going to save at that same place if I hit save. It seems to have done that to me a couple of times. Saving will help with some of the frustration.

And thank you for loading up your game to help me out. As I stated in my first post I am only playing in easy mode. What mode/modes have you played in Drac?

Just escape and then click on the S for save. It will make a new save with a new picture. Plus, it keeps all the old ones so you can load up a previous save if you want. I am a chronic "saver" when it comes to games like this and have dozens of them.

I'm playing on the hard setting right now, but I remember not being able to get through the big boss fights in the easy setting the first time I played unless I used cheats!

Some day I'll get up the nerve to play it on the nightmare setting!

I have a gazillion saves, so let me know if you're having any problems in a sticky place.

I did it! I did it! I got out of the skool and into the pool of tears (and then out of the game for tonight). Thanks Dracl and looney. I don't know why I keep forgetting how to save. Several posts up I was having that same problem and figured out what I was doing wrong then forgot again.

The game is pretty nerve wracking but I do like it. I like watching the wt videos you linked me to after completing a part because then I can see stuff I missed. When you're fighting for your life, you can't take everything around you in.

Yay! I'm in the pool of tears not too. I'd forgotten how hard this part can be. I dearly love the voice acting in this game and Alice's
"cheeky" dialogue.
