   Author's notes 
   ========================================================
   Hi! This is the first time I'm doing a Faq. I hope you
   like it! I tried to do it simple and clear, so feel free
   to E-mail me your opinion. I will also include some 
   questions in this Faq, so E-mail me if you can't find
   something, when you have a doubt or if you simply want 
   to contribute with something (but be clear). There are 
   some e-mails that I will not reply: flaming, off-topic, 
   questions already answered in the "Frequently Asked
   Questions" section (unless you need to know more details
   about something) and foreign languages (I only know 
   English and Portuguese). One more thing: please, never 
   send me pictures or any other things like that by E-mail.
   And thanks for reading my Faq! 

   If you want to use this Faq in your page, send me an 
   e-mail asking permission. Make sure you include the 
   adress where my Faq will be posted. If everything's OK, 
   I'll give you permission.  
 
   I'm glad to say that I was able to answer most of the 
   e-mails I received. Unfortunately, I can't say "all"
   because sometimes when I send an answer I receive an 
   e-mail saying that there was an error and the e-mail I
   sent was not delivered. I don't know if it is because of 
   my server, but this error ocurred three times so far and
   it is useless to send it again because the same happens.
   I'm sorry for those who didn't get an answer.
 
   
   What's new?
   ========================================================
   Version 4.2
   -Added general info to some secret locations
   -Updated author's notes (if you're planning to e-mail me,
    please read the third paragraph in this section)
   
  
   Next Update
   Now I have some more free time and I am playing this 
   game again to make sure I can answer the questions the 
   best way I can. I am getting all the secrets again and 
   thanks to that I found some mistakes in the locations.
   I am currently correcting them. I was also thinking 
   about creating a section for key items locations in
   order to help you going through the game, but I believe
   it is off-topic and I gave up on the idea. If you need
   to know anything just write. And please pay attention to
   the next updates, because I might be changing my e-mail
   adress soon. I'll let you know the new adress as soon as
   possible.

   ======================================================== 
  | 1. About the Secrets				   |
   ========================================================


   If you played any of the previous games, then you must 
   know what they are. A Secret usually consists in a hidden 
   area/room with many useful items that will help you during 
   the game. Whenever you find one, you hear a chime. In Tomb
   Raider I, III and The Last Revelation, Secrets were just
   areas with many items. In Tomb Raider II this is a bit 
   different. Although they are also hidden in secret rooms,
   the secrets consist in small coloured dragon statues. Each
   level has three statues, and if you find the three statues
   in one level you receive many items as well. In some of 
   the games, finding all secrets unlock a better bonus...

   ...and  that's exactly what happens in Tomb Raider 
   Chronicles. But I don't want to spoil it. When you 
   were playing Tomb Raider Chronicles, you might have 
   found some golden roses. That's a secret. There are
   a total of 36 roses all over the game (each level has
   3 roses). This guide tells you the locations of all 
   the roses you will find in the game.


   ========================================================
  | 2. Rome Levels 					   |
   ========================================================


   A) STREETS OF ROME

   
   -SECRET 1: At the beginning of the level, there is a 
    training area to your left. There is a room in this
    training area where you have to tightrope walk (you 
    have to walk a little before you get there). In that 
    room there is another small room in the lowest area. 
    Go there and find the shelf at the top right corner. 
    Push it twice to reveal a secret room to the left and
    collect the secret from the shelf inside that room.
 
   -SECRET 2: After you reach the area with the big gate, 
    go to the left. Before climbing the stairs where you
    find the Revolver, there is a room and a locked door to 
    the left. The secret is inside the secret room behind 
    that door. To open the door, you have to shoot the bell 
    at the bell house first. After that, go back to that door 
    and after killing the dog collect the secret from the
    shelf.     
    
   -SECRET 3: When you get to the bell house, after 
    shooting the bell, you have to jump to a room at your
    left and press a switch there. In this room there are
    two secret doors (one to the left, another one to the
    right) that will open after you move the two crystal 
    birds inside the bell house. The secret is in one of 
    them. You must go there before entering the last door 
    you opened with the two crystal birds. 


   B) TRAJAN'S MARKET


   -SECRET 4: In the room with the gears, there is a 
    trapdoor near the room's entrance (in the opposite 
    corner of the gears). This trapdoor will open after 
    you move the big wheel that is blocking a room. Go 
    there and collect the secret among other items.
   
   -SECRET 5: Kill the machine that shoots a laser from 
    its eyes against you. Go to the next room, climb to the 
    metal platform and jump to the top of the red machine. 
    The secret is there.  

   -SECRET 6: There is a closed gate to the right in the 
    main area of this level (where you start the level). 
    You can see the secret inside. This gate will open when 
    you fight the Knight. After beating him, exit that room
    through the broken window and go get the secret.  

    
   C) THE COLOSSEUM


   -SECRET 7: This one's tough to find. At the very 
    beginning of the level (before the corridor where the
    ground falls), examine the rocks to the right along the
    way. There is a secret block with a ring you have to
    push to find the secret.
  
   -SECRET 8: After exiting the room with the timed puzzle
    (where you have a few seconds to get the Gemstone Piece 
    in the top), you'll see an opened gate, but you will fall
    before passing it. After the scene with Pierre, you have 
    to go back to the room with the timed puzzle. To do that,
    you need to use the rocks to reach an entrance to the 
    right. Be careful, you have to use the right rocks to get
    there. Go back to the opened gate you saw and collect the
    secret inside.
    
   -SECRET 9: At the very end of the level, don't pick up 
    the Philosopher's stone. Instead, save your game and 
    jump to the closest platform. Keep jumping from platform 
    to platform until you find the crawling space where the 
    secret is. Then go back using the platforms one more time
    and pick up the Philosopher's stone to finish the level.

 
   ======================================================== 
  | 3. Russian Base levels				   |
   ========================================================


   D) THE BASE


   -SECRET 10: At the beginning of the level, in the crates 
    hall, get the key inside the locker. Use it to open one 
    big door hidden behind some crates. Climb the stairs and
    kill the guards at the top. Collect the Swipe card, the 
    Uzis inside the locker and return to the boxes hall.
    Now go to the two big doors with the card reader in the 
    crates hall and use the Swipe card in the left door. 
    Inside, kill the dogs and look for the broken ventilation 
    shaft in the right wall. Shoot it to reveal a secret 
    opening with the secret inside. Then simply use the Swipe
    card in the right door to continue the level.

   -SECRET 11: When you first get out to the area with snow, 
    use the hanged box in the middle of the area to jump to
    the top of the boxes at the left. The secret is there.
       
   -SECRET 12: Enter the shower room (the big room with water 
    and many lockers). Examine the left area with shallow 
    water to find a trapdoor in the right corner. Save your
    game here. Now you have to swim a lot until you find the
    secret room. Collect it and swim back to the shower room.
    You can also see the room with the secret near the
    submarine when you go outside to the area with the hanged
    box, but you cannot get the secret from there.  
    

   E) THE SUBMARINE


   -SECRET 13: After escaping the prison, walk inside the 
    air shaft until you find a hole with electricity in the
    bottom. You can go down the hole, since it has 
    climbable walls. Go down the hole to find a secret
    passage to  the left. Collect the secret and get out.
    For some reason, I died once when I dropped down from
    the secret entrance to the bottom. You can do t

   -SECRET 14: In the room where you find the Aqualung and 
    the Shotgun there is a box at the right of the entrance
    that can be opened with the crowbar. The secret is 
    inside.

   -SECRET 15: Before reaching the room where the Battery (+)
    is, you have to climb to a box and open a trapdoor on the
    top to reach the ventilation shaft once again. Inside 
    the ventilation shaft you can stand up over the second 
    ventilator. Use a flare to find a secret platform where 
    you have to climb to get the secret. 


   F) DEEP SEA DIVE


   -SECRET 16: Swim forward. And then you should swim a bit 
    to the right. After passing the rocks swim left and 
    you'll find the secret in a small opening deep in the 
    sea. 
    

   G) SINKING SUBMARINE


   -SECRET 17: First, you have to turn the electricity 
    off. After that, go back to the kitchen (which is near  
    the dining room)and catch the secret in the ground.

   -SECRET 18: This is hard to find. It took me ages to find
    it. After collecting the Oxygen canister, exit the room.
    Two guys will be waiting for you. Kill them. One of them
    has a key. Use the key to open the door in the same room 
    where you turned the electricity off.
    

   ========================================================
  | 4. Black Isle levels 			           |
   ========================================================


   H) GALLOWS TREE


   -SECRET 19: A bit hard to get. At the beginning, jump
    to the rocks in the other side of the abyss. Grab the 
    ledge and go to the left. Release the ledge at the end
    and jump to the sliding rock to your right. Hold the edge
    of the rock before falling, and then release it. You'll 
    land in a safe platform. But don't move too much, because
    you may slip and you'll have to climb to the top and do
    everything again. Now jump to a cave at your right. 
    Before that, you may want to save the game (because it's 
    a hard jump). Collect the secret inside the cave and then
    fall down to the lower area and climb back to the top.      

   -SECRET 20: After slipping to the tree where you find
    the strange creature, use the sliding ledge at the 
    left of the entrance to get to the top of the column 
    where the secret is. You have to jump backwards after
    climbing to the ledge.

   -SECRET 21: Go to the area where there are a lot of 
    crypts and find the entrance to the underground path. 
    Be carefull here, there is a spot where the ground 
    falls and there are spikes. Go to the right inside this 
    cave and go down to the lower level where the spikes are.
    Crawl across the spikes and collect the secret in the 
    small crawling space.


   I) LABIRYNTH


   -SECRET 22: In the church where the skelletons attack
    you, open the door with the Bone Dust. Enter the door
    and climb to a hidden platform at the top. Press the
    switch to open a new passage. Examine the wall at the 
    end of the passage to get the secret

   -SECRET 23: After falling in the water from a long fall,
    climb up and go through the first opening. There is a 
    bridge here. At the entrance of the brige, check the 
    left side. You'll see an opening in the wall. Do a 
    running jump and hold the edge in the corner, then go 
    right and climb up when you can. Now jump to the next
    platform and collect the secret inside the opening. Do 
    the reverse way to get out.

   -SECRET 24: After collecting the Bestiary Book and exiting
    that area, you'll see a white spirit floating around 
    that will guide you through the rest of the level. Ignore
    it for now. Climb to the first platform, then jump to the 
    other one. From here, jump forward to the overhead frame 
    (under the higher platform)and monkey swing to the  
    crawling space where the secret is. Quickly release and
    hold the "Action" button to grab the crawling space's 
    edge and climb up. Collect the secret at the end. Be
    careful with the spikes in the middle of the crawling
    space.


   J) OLD MILL


   -SECRET 25: Go to the area with the rope in the middle, 
    where the Imps are throwing stones against you. Jump to
    the rope, turn around and use the rope to jump to the 
    left platform. Collect the torch and return to the cave 
    you came from. At the end of the cave, you can light 
    the torch. Go back and do a running jump to the area 
    where the Imps are. Leave the torch near them and crawl 
    through the small tunnel to the left to get the secret.

   -SECRET 26: At the entrance of the windmill area, there
    are two crawling caves to the left. Enter the second one.
    Collect the medipack and save your game here. The path 
    is blocked with fire, so you'll have to dash through the
    fire and fall in the water before your energy bar is 
    empty. Climb up to collect the secret, and don't forget 
    to heal with the medipack you just found. Exit this area
    by using the other crawling space to the left. 

   -SECRET 27: After stopping the windmill, the water will 
    slow down. Swim behind the house where the knight went
    and you'll find a small entrance that will take you to
    the secret. You can also get this secret while the
    water is still running , but it's harder to enter in the
    small entrance. Start swimming from the left side of the
    house and try not to pass the entrance because the stream
    is very strong. I recommend you to get this secret after
    stopping the stream. 
  

   ========================================================
  | 5. Block Tower levels			           |
   ========================================================


   K) THE 13th FLOOR


   -SECRET 28: At the beginning, go to the left and shoot 
    the air duct's grating. After that, crawl through the
    air duct until Zip contacts you. You can see the secret
    during the sequence with the guard. Now move forward
    and you have to pass the lasers (careful not to fall
    in the hole with more lasers). After passing the lasers,
    shoot another grating to the left. Follow the air duct
    and you'll have to pass another laser. After that, you
    will get inside the room. Don't forget to collect the
    Hammer in the room to the right after that.  

   -SECRET 29: After getting the acess code disk, you have
    to go back to the floor where you started the level and 
    operate the computer to open the air duct. Now you have 
    to go down using the pole. Be carefull with the 
    explosions (you should save your game before going down).
    At the middle of the pole, jump backwards and you should
    land in a secret entrance. Collect the secret and go 
    down without using the pole (simply fall to the ground).
    Use your medipacks if you lost some energy with the
    explosions.         
    
   -SECRET 30: Later in the level, there is a U-shaped room
    where you kill a guard and Zip tells you not to kill the
    scientist. You should save your game before entering 
    this room. After that, kill the scientist. Don't get 
    too close to him, otherwise a sequence will start and
    you will not be able to get the secret. Use the rifle 
    and sniper ammo to kill him. He will see your gun and 
    he will start running around, but try to kill him. A new 
    door will open near this room's entrance. You'll have to 
    deal with several guards and the machine guns are
    activated, so heal whenever you need. Your energy will 
    drop very quickly. Go to the new opened door and go to 
    the left when you see the laser. The secret is at the end 
    of the corridor.


   L) ESCAPE WITH THE IRIS


   -SECRET 31: After entering the elevator shaft for the  
    first time (by using the trapdoor in the bathroom), 
    save your game and go down the climbable wall. Go down as 
    much as you can, then release. You should land inside the
    secret entrance. It's a bit hard to do it, because most 
    of the times you will land on a slipping ledge. Then
    collect the secret and get out by climbing the elevator
    chain. 

   -SECRET 32: After exiting the elevator shaft once and for
    all, you'll have to run from an armed guard (you don't 
    have weapons yet). You'll see a big aquarium there with
    the secret inside. If you stand between the guard and 
    the aquarium, the guard will certainly hit the glass of 
    the aquarium. Collect the secret and run. You may lose 
    some energy here, so be carefull. 

   -SECRET 33: After collecting the previous secret, a 
    sniper will shoot against you. Run to the other side 
    and climb up the wall at the left of the door. Run to the 
    other side once again. There's a small fire estinguisher
    there (near the switch that opens the door below). The
    sniper must shoot it, so run around it until that happens.
    The explosion will reveal a secret entrance with the 
    secret inside.


   M) RED ALERT


   -SECRET 34: At the begginig of the level, kill the guard 
    and keep going upstairs. The choper will destroy some of
    the stairs and you'll have to jump. After a running jump,
    the next stairs will fall below your feet, so make sure 
    you jump before you fall with them. After that, climb 
    down the stairs that just felt to get to the secret
    entrace at the left side. Collect the secret and get out.

   -SECRET 35: The hardest secret to get. It took me a few
    tries, and you may have to practice before doing it. 
    After using the elevator (inside the building), kill 
    the guard. There is a large corridor to the left and two 
    doors in front of you. Enter the left door, equip your
    rifle with sniper ammo and save the game. Press the 
    button to start the shooting game. Try to shoot all the
    targets before they pass the middle line. If something 
    goes wrong, reset and try again. If you did it fine, the 
    lamp will light up and the other door will be opened. 
    Save your game. You have to shoot all the targets again,
    but this time is harder. After pressing the button, the
    room will be filled with gas and the exit door will only
    open if you shoot all targets before they pass the middle
    line. Then heal yourself from the gas and go up the 
    corridor to collect the secret in the opened room to the 
    left.

   -SECRET 36: The last secret, and very easy to get. At the
    end of the level , you have to go inside the gas chamber.
    Save your game before that. The secret is near the first
    switch, in a crawling space to the right.


   Congratulations! You have found all the secrets in the 
   game. Now go to the last door and save your game there.
   After the final credits, don't turn the console off yet.
   A new option called "Special Features" will be available 
   in the main menu. Enjoy your reward!

   =========================================================
   
   
   I'll list some moves that are not listed in the game's 
   manual or explained during the trainig level. Some of 
   them are useless, but great looking, and most of them also
   exist in the previous games.
  
   -Swan dive: press "Walk" button while performing a
    forward jump.
   
   -Swan dive with rotation: Only works when jumping from
    very high places. Perform a Diving jump, then press and
    hold the "Roll" button. 
   
   -"Upside-down": While holding a climbable edge, press 
    "Up" to climb up and hold the "Walk" button.

   -Somersault: Near an edge, press/hold the "Crouch" button
    and then press "Jump". This movement is only used to
    enter the small house in "Old Mill" level, but works 
    any time.   



   =========================================================
  | 7. Weapons						    |
   =========================================================

   -Pistols:
    Lara uses the two pistols at the same time, although 
    she will only use one when an enemy is out of range from
    the two. It is possible to kill everything with the 
    pistols in the levels where you can use them, even if
    they are the weakest weapon. The good thing about them is 
    they have unlimited ammo. Whenever you want to save ammo 
    for your stronger weapons use the pistols. They are useful
    to kill weak enemies, like dogs. You start the game with 
    them and they are available for the Rome and Russian Base 
    levels.

   -Revolver:
    Cool weapon that can be combined with a laser sight.
    Good to kill human enemies. Can be used in a sniper
    style for long-disntance shots. Found in the first 
    level at the top of the stairs on the left side of 
    the area where you meet Pierre and Larson.  

   -Shotgun:
    A strong weapon that uses two types of shells, Normal 
    and Wideshot. the shotgun is the best weapon against
    stronger and bigger enemies, like lions, knights and
    the three big snakes. Can be found in Trajan's Market,
    after coming out of the water in the room where you 
    fight the first knight and in The Submarine, in the room
    with a lot of wooden boxes where the Aqualung is.

   -Uzi:
    The Uzi is only effective because it is very fast.
    It wastes a lot of ammo in no time and it is not that 
    powerful. Use it only when you really need it. To find 
    it, just before entering the room with the timed puzzle in
    The Colosseum go up the ramp at your right and enter at 
    the top. You'll be attacked by a gladiator and by a lion,
    so kill them and examine the room to find it right next 
    to a Large Medipack. Also found in "The Base", inside the 
    locker in the room where you get the first swipe card, and
    in the "Sinking Submarine" in a room to the left of the 
    path with fire.
 
   -Desert Eagle:
    This weapons is good against human enemies. It is pretty
    much the same as the revolver in terms of power and speed.
    Found in the the shower room (the large room with shallow 
    water and the trapdoor for secret 12)  inside a locker
    ("The Base" level) and in the room with a lot of water where 
    the Nitrogen Canister can be found ("Sinking Submarine" 
    level)

   -HK Gun:
    A cool weapon that you will use in the Block Tower levels.
    It has three types of ammo. In Sniper mode, it takes time
    to reload and are slow, but great for head shots and 
    other one-hit kills. The lasersight it has makes it cooler.
    Burst mode is great because it shoots some damaging 
    bullets at a good speed. Speed Mode is a bit like the 
    Uzi: a lot of ammo wasted in a couple of seconds for 
    less damage but since it is so fast it is good against
    multiple enemies. You will have several different 
    situations that will require you to use all the modes 
    available for this weapon. You start the first level of 
    the final adventure with it. 

   -Grappling Gun: 
    You can't even kill a fly with this. It is only used to
    shoot some hooks with ropes to grattings in the 
    ceiling to help you in certain situations, like reaching
    certain places that are too far or too high. Obtained in 
    the room with all the weapons that you open after 
    clearing the target-shooting room in "Red Alert" level.

   Note: I don't know if there are alternative places to find 
   the weapons if you miss them the first time like it happens 
   in the previous Tomb Raiders (although I highly doubt)
   because I always pick them up as soon as I can, like it
   happens in the previous Tomb Raiders (although I highly 
   doubt). But if anyone found a weapon in a different 
   location than the ones you see here please tell me.

   =========================================================
  | 9. Playstation Beta version            		    |
   =========================================================
 
 
   What is the Playstation Beta version? 
   It is a version of the game that was created as a 
   promotional version before the final version was released.
   This version has some "bugs" that were corrected in the 
   final version, and one of the secrets was changed, as well 
   as the cheats. Usually, this version can only be obtained
   by piracy or as prize in several contests. 

  
   Cheats: 
   The final version cheats don't work in this game,
   but these ones work fine. And yes, I've tested them. 

   -Adventure selection:
   In the main menu, highlight "New Game" and press the
   following button to start at any adventure:
   >Russian Base (second adventure): L1   
   >Black Isle   (third  adventure): L2
   >Tower Block  (fourth adventure): R2
   While holding the button, press "X".
     
   -View FMV: 
   In the main menu, press Select+R2. A new option should 
   appear.

   -Unlimited Medipacks and ammo*:
   While playing, open the inventory and highlight the Small
   Medipack. Then press L1+L2+R1+R2+Up. Exit the inventory
   and check it again. You should have everything unlimited.
   
   -All key items in current level*:
   While playing, open the inventory and highlight the Large
   Medipack. The press L1+L2+R1+R2+Down. Exit the inventory
   and check it again. You should have all the key items. 
      
   *Note: you can't do this cheat if you don't have the 
   medipack in the inventory.


  
   Secrets:
   The only difference is one secret in "The 13th Floor" 
   level in the Tower Block. I'll give you the correct list
   of the secrets in this level.
   
   -SECRET 28: At the beginning, go to the left and shoot 
    the air duct's grating. After that, crawl through the
    air duct until Zip contacts you. You can see the secret
    during the sequence with the guard. Now move forward
    and you have to pass the lasers (careful not to fall
    in the hole with more lasers). After passing the lasers,
    shoot another grating to the left. Follow the air duct
    and you'll have to pass another laser. After that, you
    will get inside the room.

   -SECRET 29: After opening a door by shooting the lock, 
    slide down and kill the guard. Climb up to the air shaft
    again. There are a lot of explosions here, and the secret
    is in the other side, so run and avoid getting caught by
    an explosion.
  
   -SECRET 30: After getting the acess code disk, you have
    to go back to the floor where you started the level and 
    operate the computer to open the air duct. Now you have 
    to go down using the pole. Be careful with the 
    explosions (you should save your game before going 
    down). At the middle of the pole, jump backwards and you
    should land in a secret entrance. Collect the secret and 
    go down without using the pole (simply fall into the
    ground). Use your medipacks if you lost some energy with
    the explosions.   


   Any more differences?

   Well, yes, but I'm not sure about this. I didn't test it,
   but my friend says he was "trapped" because of this. At the 
   "Red Alert" level in the Tower Block, you have to collect 
   the grappling gun before entering the next room. If you 
   enter the next room without collecting this gun, the door
   will be locked forever and you cannot get out because you
   need the gun to continue.  
  
   
   =========================================================
  | 10. Frequently Asked Question			    |
   =========================================================
 
  
   Q: I have the game for Playstation and I can't find secret
      number 29.
   A: There is a different PAL version of the game which  
      isn't exactly the final PAL version. Check the 
      "Playstation Beta version" section for more details.


   Q: I cannot get the secret 11 in the Russian base. Every
      time I try to jump to the boxes from the hanged box,
      I always fall in the ground.
   A: The same happened to me, and I still don't know why.
      Do a Swan Dive (press the walk button when performing 
      a running jump) to get there easily.
   -Additional info (credit goes to Surplus Boy): 
      "The only way this has worked for me is to refrain from
      pressing X, thereby landing on the feet rather than
      pulling up from the corner. The same was true of the
      final long jump in the Black Isle adventure."   


   Q: Your cheats for Playstation don't work. What's wrong?
   A: Again, the cheats for the Beta version are different 
      from those in the final version. If the final version
      cheats don't work with you, try the beta version 
      cheats.
 
  
   Q: I'm stuck. I don't know what to do. If I send you an e-mail
      asking for help about the game (but not the secrets), will 
      you answer me?
   A: Of course. I will not include a walkthrough in this
      faq (only cheats, secrets and related things), but I've 
      finished the game a few times. I wouldn't say "no" if I can
      help you! 

 
   Q: You say there are three secrets in every level, but
      there are two levels in the Russian base with one or
      two secrets. 
   A: The "Deep Sea Dive" level (which has one secret) is more
      like a "sub-level" of the "Sinking Submarine" level 
      (which has two secrets). That makes three secrets.


   Q: In the "Streets of Rome" level how do I shoot the bell 
      at the bell house to get the second secret and continue
      the level?
   A: You must get both Revolver and Laser Sight. Combine 
      Laser Sight with the Revolver, press and hold the 
      "Look" button and aim the bell. Then simply shoot it.
 

   Q: I'm in the room with the gears in Trajan's Market and
      I don't know how to reach the top left area with the
      second rope. How do I get there?   
   A: From the top right room where the first rope is, jump
      from platform to platform until you are close to the
      room. You can jump directly to the last platform, but if
      you're having trouble then look to the right wall before
      the entrance. You should see an opening. Jump to that 
      opening and from there you can jump to the platform near
      the entrance.


   Q: How do I kill that Soldier head in Trajan's Market?
   A: Combine the Lasersight with the Revolver. You have to
      shoot both his eyes. In order to to that, stay still
      and wait until he starts charging the laser. When that 
      happpens jump left or right and shoot his eye. Repeat 
      the process to destroy the other eye. You can destroy 
      both at the same time if you like. 
   Additional Info (credit goes to PRNCSANGL14): "If you are 
      going into the octopus room and find the manhole, there 
      is a raised block. Stand directly facing the block and
      the octopus will shoot over your head and miss. This 
      worked for me and I don't know if it works all the time."
    

   Q: I'm having trouble with the timed puzzle in  "The
      Colosseum" level. Can you help me?
   A: It only depends on your skills. This puzzle is easy if
      you can control Lara correctly. Here's a small walkthrough
      with all the steps. It is kinda hard to explain everything,
      but I tried my best:
      -Push the string three times while facing the middle 
       platform where the gemstone piece is;
      -Jump to the right. You'll slide down a little bit;
      -While running down the stairs count 4 steps and jump to
       land in a platform.
      -Keep running forward and jump after the 5th step to 
       land in that sort of pillar. Keep running forward.
      -Now you have to run 4 steps and jump a litttle bit after
       the 4th step while pressing "Action" in the air to grab 
       the platform on the other side. If you couldn't jump far
       enough to reach the platform you jumped too soon. If you
       ended up falling from the pillar you jumped too late. 
      -Climb to the platform and run 10 steps while turning left.
       Jump just before the platform's limit and grab the final
       platform where the Gemstone Piece is waiting for you.


   Q: How do I reach the crane control room in the crates 
      room? ("The Base" level)
   A: After opening the right door with the swipe card, do
      the following: 
     -Climb the stairs and once you are on top you have to 
      jump to the first crate with a wooden box on top;
     -Turn right and climb to that box. Do a running jump 
      to the nearest crate (the one a  bit to the right);
     -From there jump to the other set of crates and boxes
      to the left and climb to the highest box to the right;
     -Do another running jump to the crate with a wooden box
      over it and climb to that box.
     -Finally do a running jump to the balcony on the other 
      side (press "Action" while in the air) and then you can 
      open the door to enter the crane control room. 

      
   Q: In the Submarine level, I'm in the kitchen with the guy
      with the knife and I don't know what to do. I don't have
      the weapons yet. Is there a way to kill him?
   A: Yes. You have to enter the kitchen slowly so he doesn't
      hear you and walk behind him (you can't run). Once you
      are behind him select the Crowbar and Lara will knock him
      out. Collect the key he drops and open the righ door. 
      Collect another key and the Pistols inside. Use the key in
      the left door to exit the kitchen.  
 

   Q: In the "Old Mill" level, how can I reach the top of the
      small house to finish the level?
   A: After you turn the wind mill off and the water stops, you
      can swim in the water in the left side of the house where
      the horseman went. You'll find an entrace in the rocks at
      your left that will take you to the roof of that house. 
      Now try to reach the other side of the roof by jumping to
      the areas where you don't slide. You have to do one final
      jump to reach the roof of the small house. This jump might
      be a bit hard and you may fall some times.


   Q: And how do I get in? 
   A: There are two ways to do that:
      1-Press and hold "crouch", move backwards to the window
        and press "Action" to enter normally (sometimes it's
        hard to enter this way);
      2-Use the "Somersault" move (Check "Special movements
        list" section for detail).


    Q: I am having trouble opening certan manholes and 
       trapdoors but I don't know why! What do I have to do
       to open them?
    A: I got this question a few times for several different 
       trapdoors/manholes. I never had such problems, but what 
       I can say is that you have to stand over the trapdoor/
       /manhole lock facing the right direction and then press 
       the "Action" button to open it. If you still can't
       open it you should try facing several different directions
       and you should open it soon or later. If you really can't
       open it no matter what you do make sure you are trying to
       open something that is supposed to be opened.
