You need to get the truck rolling and then jump in. Take a good look around the truck. I tried to get it going for quite a while before I noticed the problem. Of course you will miss the warehouse part of the game.

I could not jump into the truck. It would not let me. So I just ran behind it.

Pokey; Where is this warehouse I was supposed to go to? I jumped out the window of the hotel and wound up in the collapsed building. Does installing the god-mode screw the game up? (Oh, by the way, I just found the wedge under the truck tire. I'm now trying to jump in the back before it takes off down the hill) nu2gaming

The warehouse comes right after the escape from the hotel. You end up on the roof and go into the warehouse and then down the alley to where you ended up. Things can happen when you use cheats. Was it godmode or maybe it skipped a level? You have time to remove the wedge and then run up on the platform and jump in the truck.

God mode does not screw the game up. Did you even activate it? Did you check the god mode box? If you did not you dont even have the god mode activated. The patch does not default to god mode. You have to activate it by checking the box.

Pokey and JohnBoy: Yes I checked god mode. I think I have figured out what I'm doing wrong. I think when I try to jump from the hotel to the other bldg. I don't make it and wind up at street level. (I have never landed on the other building). Does that sound reasonable? I'm just going to go back to the hotel save and try to start from there. It seems I have really confused you guys. I'm sorry. oops nu2gaming

Yes, if you don't make the jump you will fall into the alley.

In order to make the jump you must look slighty up, or Jack will fall. All jumps need to be done this way. Jack is also afraid of heights, so looking down over any kind of drop is usually not a good option unless you have no choice.

Don't be sorry. This is a really hard segment for so early in the game. It took all of us completely by surprise! scared

But you actually made it through the hardest part of the sequence. The rest is a little less intimidating, although those fishmen keep coming after you.

Thanks for all your encouragement. Yes, that is indeed what is happening. I miss the jump and end up in the alley. This apparently takes some skill I haven't yet developed. Oh well. Practice, practice, practice. wave

EDIT: AAARG!!! I've had it. I'm never going to make that jump. I'm so tired of those fishmen. Goodnight. sleep nu2gaming

Jump and look up as you get to the edge. You'll make it eventually.

Hi; Has this happened to anyone else? Twice (in the hotel) before the escape attempt, the screen says "saving game", but when I get killed or miss the jump and wind up in the alley I have to start back at my last save (before following Gilman upstairs to my room). nu2gaming

You should be starting in bed, waking up to the goons breaking down your door. Are you clicking on "continue"? Backspace will bypass a lot of the videos.

Congrats. It should be easier now--mostly sneaking. I found that if I observed their movement, I could run crouched from the office right through the warehouse. Keep your distance and watch them.

Pokey; Now you have me worried again. What office? I'm at the save/star and can't seem to get out of that corner. I sure haven't seen an office. I'm on the verge of just trying to barge my way past them to get out of this corner. No matter how long I wait crouched, in stealth, they are always there the minute I move. nu2gaming

There is a short piece before the office. Try moving from one group of boxes to the next. I got spotted about halfway and made a run for the window. After you try it a few times, you can do it without getting hurt too bad. I usually used crouched without stealth.

ok. I'm totally stumped again. I'm on the floor of the warehouse. Should I be up on the catwalk? I can see a door up there but I don't find any way to get to it. I'm not seeing a guy with a flashlight, just two guys who keep repeating "Don't let him get away! Shoot him!" Ive tried jumping up on some boxes below a window but nothing is happening. Don't you just press the "space bar" to jump? I spent two days getting from the hotel room to this warehouse. I looks like it may take me that long to get out. help nu2gaming

Yes, you need to be on the catwalk. Climb up some boxes and then follow the catwalk to a window at the side of the warehouse. Jump is the spacebar.

Pokey you're a doll! ok. I've gotten as far as the sewer. (didn't accomplish anything in the warehouse except finally getting out). I'm in the sewer. I've done the switches on the pipes, turned the crank, did the switches on the pipes again and turned the crank again. I'm not finding the floodgate. Is it in the room with the crank or back in the sewer? Where? duh nu2gaming

The floodgate it in the vat. The crank for the floodgate is right beside the vat. Once you've flushed the vat with water, you turn the floodgate crank one more time to empty it, dash up that ladder, down into the vat, and skedaddle through before it closes again.

Thank you hagatha. I've climbed up that ladder a couple of times but didn't manage to go any further.

How many seconds do you have to get to that flood gate? As soon as I climb the ladder I can hear it closing. Am I having fun yet? nu2gaming

You have to get right up that ladder and down into the vat as soon as you can. I found that jumping down into the vat and then crouching while moving forward did the trick. The gate always started to come down before I got to it so I got injured going through.

Good morning; ok. I'll just keep trying. Speaking of injuries, I got a message when I started up the stairs of the sewer about suturing wounds. I clicked on the picture of Jack and different parts of his body and clicked on the sutures but I just get a clunking sound. Am I doing it wrong? nu2gaming

I usually just heal all by hitting H. If you wait a bit, the needed sutures turn to wounds that need bandages and you probably have more of them. It sounds like maybe you didn't really need sutures and it was part of a tutorial. You can see the wounds on Jack's body if he needs treatment.
