View Full Version : Is there a walkthrough for TEP?

there is only an italian version at tombraider.videogame.it (go in the level editor TAB then "soluzioni" and search for TEP)

well, then I can help you.
If you are in the church room, simply shimmy on a violet/purple brick wall on the left then lift up yourself but before to fall down a sloped square do a back jump to the top of a dark/greenish column. From that a running jump WITHOUT grapping to the column in front of you, where to jump for a wall switch. In the next location you have to go up above the yellow brick wall, with a running jump from a purple wall.. then search for an hidden floor switch and a lasersight (useful in the next location)...

... I think I already did all that. I got the jump switch, got the lasersight, and am at the area with the crossbow.

Don't bother with the walkthru. If you translate it into English it's about understable as a Yoko Ono song.

Maybe you can find an Italian friend to translate for you.

One question:
Is it anywhere near as hard as COTW?
Cuz if it isn't, I think I can hold my own
Maybe with a few hints and tips from you people!

@Hiking, it's not as difficult. Except for that part --- skeleton and lever on a ledge --- everything is manageable. And even that part above has a graphical mini walkthrough which you may ask from Psiko when you come around to it.

So if you got that crossbow, look for something hanging to shoot in the water area. And at the end of the water area above is a now accessible lever (as the end floor is raised). Upward and onward.

I did all that, and I got to the skeleton and lever on a ledge- one question- was I supposed to kill the skeleton? OH, and I quickly discovered the spikes that come up at you near the door where you use the two pieces to open the thing....
There's just so many options, I get confused easily.

have you already opened the TEP?
But I think you didn't go into the corcs room...

the TEP infact can be openes before that room... you chosed the not frequent solution, but the tep is solved the same. There are at least 6 or 7 ways to solve it after you opened the porta, but sooner or later you have to go there.

A way is from the "hardest room" where you met the skeleton, since the square next to the one where you picked up the "second eye piece", make a BACK JUMP in order you land on a SLOPED SQUARE behind you and NEXT the burning one...

once grapping on that, do a back-flip-corrected jump to land on a safe square next to the burning one.. from that, reach the "crocs yellow island"... you are going to pick up the artefact which will open your way to the "end"...

No, I haven't opened the TEP yet. I just found it, via some old-fashioned exploring. Then I reloaded, and went the other way, so now I"m in the skeleton room. Am I supposed to kill the skeleton? I'm confused. So after I get that second eyepiece ( I see it, I'm not sure how to get to it, but the point is I see it), I can open the TEP and the level is over?

Hiking, when you placed the two eyepices at the receptor, the portal opened and you get one piece of an arifact. The other piece is at the crocs room.

The room beyond the spikes (in front of the portal) is for later.

You may kill the skeleton, if you want. But funny, when i first did this, it took me a long time to get up on the ledge. By the time i was up there, the skeleton was nowhere in sight! Prolly got tired waiting for me.

I don't have the 2nd eyepiece yet. I'm working on getting it. I just have to get up to it, that's it.
*edit* After 3 hours of frustration, I CANT figure out how to get to that damned ledge with the switch and the 2nd eyepiece. I've pulled the dropdown switch that opened the door above, slid down the slope with the ladder at the end, and now I'm in a room with some Power-line looking pillars, and a ledged window overlooking the 2nd eyepiece/lever on a ledge/ skeleton room. I'm stuck. Where do I go next?

this is the solution for you :)

Ohhhhhh ok I get it now
Thanks psiko!
I did it! Thanks Psiko- onward and upward.

You go Hiking...wasn't the graphical walkt nifty?
Now it's onward and DOWNWARD :D to the crocs room. Good luck.
