I know this question must have been asked many times but I will have to ask again. Sorry guys.

I have just started playing TR-The Angel Of Darkness and I am currently stuck in - Le Serpent Rouge. Where in Le Serpent Rouge can I find the item needed by the guy in Metro Cafe ?

I have reached the top of the building but can't find the item to proceed.

Experts, please help. Have been stuck for 2 days with nowhere to go !!:mad:

5 easy steps.

1 - Switch off console/PC.
2 - Remove game CD
3 - Place CD on floor.
4 - Raise foot above CD.
5 - Bludgeon CD with foot until you are rid of it's evil.

Try looking in the lighting system at the very top of the club.

There are controls to rotate them around the rig.

This 1 is easy.......

get to the lighting booth,that's at the top of da Club, and pull the lever on the left TWICE to take the BROKEN lighting rig closer to that box.Now right 1 press ONCE,to make it go in that Box.Now make Lara go there and take it.

U can give it either to Bernand (the fat old man) or Pierre (the barman at Cafe Metro,or just ignore them and go to the Doorman but he also requires 800 franks with THE Trinket Box of course.

Hey guys,

Thanks for the advise.
Dave, I have reached the top but can't find my way to anything. Opened up a box with nothing inside, jumped here and there with nowhere to go!

Please let me know where should I be.

Thanks in advance.

Hey Inv,

Sorry man, didn't see your reply when I was sending that reply to Dave.

The booth you are saiyng, is it that room on the left at the top ? If yes, how in the world do I get there ?

I knew something was up :D

Anywho,u need to have lower-body strength upgrade and u get that by kicking the drawbridge ,the hand icon appears just press action,and Lara says she's stronger.
The drawbridge is on the left side of the door u need to kick WHEN u get the upgrade,and that's the door to that BOOTH u need to go to press those levels to get that box.Whew. :cool:

U should have told your current location.......to exact,and what have u done before that etc........

Here's a short description

Since i think,BTW you at least know where the box is where you'r trying to get that other thingy hehe,just turn left,and SLIDE but quickly JUMP to land on the other ledge,turn left, jump the gap and walk to the edge. Jump to grab the support beam ahead and traverse to the left. A pipe running along the top of the beam prevents Lara from pulling up right away, so traverse to the left until she can. Also look out for that yellow bar,it's her support and how long she can still hang on.

Go left and jump down to the ledge near the control room door.

And I've already told u what and where to go in previous reply,so u should have no more problems,I hope,hehe ;) :D

Passed it yet?!

Wow, looks like I am way behind.
I was at the ground floor of the club trying to enter a door and was denied saying I'll need a key. So, I started going to the upper floors. I took the 'light elevator' to the top floor where I am stuck at.

There is a room on the left and I am sure there's something in there. Am still trying to find my way there and then there's kind of a bridge linking to the said room. Then I jumped to the middle where there is a box with nothing inside.

That's where I am now. I don't get where the drawbridge is.
What next ?

DO this when seeing that nothing is in that box:

*sigh*

U WALK Lara 'till the end of the ledge ,and when she can't walk anymore which means she's at the END of it fo sure,just do JUMP-UP-ACTION,and she's gonna jump and grab it......
Jeeeez.....

:rolleyes: :D

ok, found the entrance to Buchard's hideout. Went through everything until Lara found this mutated guy lying on the bed. Went into a room talked to Buchard then he pulled out a gun and shot Lara dead !

What was Lara supposed to do in order not to get killed ?

You've probably read it but I'll tell anyhow;you have to swim thru the opening at the bottom;follow the road,there are more pipes.:)
The lid closes if you've closed all the valves in the first area.
