OK I got the permit. I am in the shooting gallery. Sasha keeps telling me I am a good shooter but I am not using my mental lock. I cant figure out what the heck he is talking about. So I have to keep starting over. Kim? Where are you?

Ingie Did you get to the tight ropes yet? lol those were fun! And how about the rails? rotfl

OK I got stuck there also, you need to change direction by pressing the "f" key. I think its the "f" key. And then you should swing in the right direction.

lol

Do you find the camera angles annoying at times. I mean like objects getting in the way of your view? I need to fool with the camera angles and see if it can be adjusted.

Yes I do find it annoying, but I made it worse and put it back to default.

f key, well now it had to be a mistake the first flip through then cause I went swinging up that wall like regular monkey.. slapforehead ...my reflexes are so slow..but actually the more I am playing the better I am getting some things are coming along really better than I thought. I don't like it though when I have to run and can't angle Raz right..camera thing I know..I may fiddle again with it..but I really was in trouble last time.
But it does get tiring to have an old tire or piece of junk in my line of sight. mad

johnboy - I'm using a gamepad so it might be different but I think Sasha is talking about locking on to your target before shooting at it - this makes it a lot easier to hit them. Targeting with mental focus - hold down the left shift key while shooting.

I guess you guys play at night so I will try to check the boards at night - I usually play in the afternoon when my daughter is napping (I am so lucky - she is almost three and still takes a really long nap).

I loved riding the rails and the little sparks that come up behind Raz. The game does make me a little dizzy and I feel like I am always going to be falling off the edge.

And I think the camera is the weakest part of the game - often I'm trying to line myself up and an object, usually behind me, blocks my view.

Some advice - master the fast shooting and the pole and rope swinging, etc. because it gets a lot harder later in the game.

I thought I was finished with the shooting gallery when Sasha came and congratulated me but to my surprise there is a part two. eek I just wasnt brave enough to continue at that point so I saved my game. Now I am worried when I go back to play this evening that I'll have to start at phase one of the shooting gallery. I am hoping it saved after the completion of the first phase. It was fun but I dont think I want to do it again right now. Ingie its so wild! lol You are on this large white cube floating around in "mind space" lol You have a mission to complete while all these men in suits come charging at ya. Its like there is no gravity cause you can walk around the cube without falling off and the graphics are so cool in this area. Have fun! I am.

Did you complete the pipe swinging?

Well I think I may have to use a cheat. I am getting frustrated with the second part of Sashas shooting Gallery. At least it did save at the start of part 2 and I did not have to do the first part over. I believe Rusty said there were cheats for the game. I'm off to hunt them down. wave
Well Since there is no god mode cheat, I dont see where there would be a need to use the others. Getting killed is the problem and you can still die with all the other cheats available so why bother.

Isn't the "infinite lives" cheat the same as god mode? Maybe not...

If you are a registered member (free) of GameSpot, they have an awesome Psychonauts gameguide on their site. It's also downloadable.

wave Rusty. I think, but I could be wrong, infinite lives means that you have 9999 lives but you can still die. However it would have an advantage cause you would not have to go through the game resetting when you run out of lives. I was looking for a god mode that lets you take hits with no damage so I could make it through the part I am having trouble with. Infinite lives are no good if you cant make it to the end of the level.

I checked a bunch of places. Gamespot has the best explanation so far, but I still cant get then to take. I will go to GameFaqs and check it out. Thanks, Rusty!

They're the same. GameSpot gets their cheats from GameFaqs.

I'm glad you got it - it is a hard fast paced section. Later on you can go back into the brain tumbler to revisit all the levels to pick up the figments and objects you missed the first time. When you are at a higher level and have more skills the earlier levels are easy - plus there is no boss to fight.

I tried the cheats as well to see what they did but I couldn't get them to work either. It seems like a number of people are having the same problem.

How did you finally get through the level?

I just kept at it. Although I must admit I was about to call it quits and uninstall the game. lol

Now I am having trouble with stage 3. I roam around killing all those crying fireball babies and when my health is good I climb the stairs and I miss that jump to the platform everytime. I am usually good at jumping so I cant figure out why I cant make it. duh

Good for you Johnboy, I think, sounds tough..

Well I'm where I was in the old game.
Swung my way to the platform on the pole swing wall..but can't figure out..do I want to try and jump on the net? If so I miss it every time..not sure what I am to do..there is a ledge below but I miss that also and into the abyss I fall.

Help again I think.. help

I was playing...in the gardens...nice day here and gardening away is fun..didn't play but that little bit to get to the platform..

You mean the punch in the air, hitting space bar twice? I tried that..didn't try to punch with the left mouse though..hmm? I'll give it a shot, I assume I'm trying to get to the netting?
Might have to visit some of the monky's sites.

Y'know, in every Zelda game since A Link to the Past, "bombable" wall-sections have always been represented by large, circular webs of cracks in a wall...

This isn't a Zelda game, and you don't have any bombs...but you should look for one of those, Ingie. luck
