My kingdom for f****** Quick Save

#1pure mind gamesPosted 3/24/2013 9:16:39 AM(edited)
I'm on Natla's Mines done the 3 fuses now I need to kill the guy with my Magnums(easy enough) and then(try to) jump across and grab the ledge.

My problem is after missing the ledge and hitting the slope she's either facing the wrong way*Wise beyond her years*(wait, wrong game) or when I try to drop down into the "shimmy crack" she just doesn't grab it(I've been having this problem all game, only pulled it off once)

And after I fail I'm back in the 1st area and have to kill the guy all over again



F****** FINALLY!

Finally completed the game, I've never seen so much trial and error BS. I'm glad I have to play TR3 on an emulator(Don't have an original copy and my PS1 is kaput)

Congrats! As much as I love this game I have to admit that it must take a great deal of patience for people who are playing it for the first time now. I think it was just easier to accept the steep learning/mastery curve for the controls since most other games at the time (pre-analog) had their own unique--often quirky--control schemes and nowadays it's all analog and is more or less intuitive from the start. As is evidenced from past threads on this board, most people never make it past that part of it.

Just to warn you, TR3 is legendary for being brutally hard, even without accounting for the limited saves. The difficulty is a pretty natural progression from 1-3 though if you play them all one after the other.

If grabbing a shimmy crack while dropping doesn't work then you're either falling too far or something is wrong with your control set-up, because it always works otherwise.

Also the PC versions let you quicksave, and are superior in most other ways too if you have a gamepad.
