I had the parisian map (underground), and the archeological dig, but can't open them to look closer. They just appear like tiny or transparant "icons" on the inventory. Is this suppose to be this way? And if not, how can I open them and look closer?

Actually,in Vault of Trophies she does a lot of swimming and u have 2 aqua lungs in your inventory (one from sanctuary of fire i think, one from Vault itself, on some secluded ledge).

U better use it, or Lara is gonna become food for those fishes.
I don' think they'r carnivoures,but if you see a woman like Lara in that tiny wetsuit, u wanna take a bite alright ;) :D

No,so you better pawn everything you got and can before
St. Aicard's Graveyard which is also in Parisian Ghetto,but you can't go back.

You'll see when you reach that point in a game.

I see mention of aqualungs in this thread, Lara when visiting
the Louvre Gallery first time -if playing on a PS2 can retrieve respirators at the Gallery by kneeling and pressing action she sticks her head in the cupboard and retrieves respirator 1 at a time.

I havent found any appreciable difference between aqualungs
and respirators for swimming ie: they are equally as good.

Lara visits this same spot later in Galleries under siege
if you didnt get them the first time

Respirators can also be used underwater ie Neptune Hall
if you picked them up first time round, plus later
wherever extended swimming is needed. Keep one spare
though for " I cant breathe " sections

Hope this helps
Chris

Another thread reported problems with PC
version doing this too.

Even on a PS2 its not easy to do, you have to
press action x just as she kneels ie precisely as
Lara bends down , not after

Im unsure if there is an equivalent two key operation
on PC, from what others have said it doesnt work on PC
Sorry , Cheers / Chris

yeah this does actually work on pc, i remember doing it myself. i think the hand icon appears when you stand in front of the case but you cannot collect the masks, however if you crouch at this point lara does reach in and pick up the masks. whas almost a year since i played this so i may be a little out on the positioning, but it does deffinatley work.

You can pick up all three respirators and have them in inventory.

Upon returning in Galleries Under Siege, there are only two respirators in the case, and you can only pick up one respirator the standard way, but the Duck + Action works to get the second one.

If you pick up the respirators in the Louvre Galleries level, Lara can put on a respirator before she enters the room with the poision gas in the Galleries Under Siege level.

I have seen threads here about exploring back in the Hall of Seasons after the Ghost when everything is flooded. If the respirators work as Aqua-Lungs, that would be something interesting to try.
