Sector 3 Help

#1surrealogicalPosted 8/29/2010 10:10:55 AM
Anyone here know how to get past the area in sector 3 where there's an elevator, 3 grappling hooks, and a red door? I'm stuck around where the door is for hours now.

Any help will be appreciated!

Bump for being stuckat the same point.

yes, I too am completely stuck at this point. Have swung over into this area via 3 grapple beams and the door is locked and there is seemingly nothing to do here and no way back due to a high wall blocking the grapple beams.

From looking at a video walkthrough, that red door is supposed to already be green and openable. So it appears I've reached a major glitch and cannot continue. How splendid.

there's a way past it, you have to use a siwtch to open the door.

look on the wall in the hall way for a hole you can climb in a morph ball and it takes you to the switch.

At 3:20 onwards, you see that there is no switch that needs turning on, the door is already green after the 3 grapple beams. Not on my copy though!

So have I really broken/glitched my save file somehow? Because this is some dumb sh*t if I have to completely restart.

I have found no way to progress at all, that door has well and truly glitched shut, and I can only assume the 2 people that started this topic are in the same boat?
