View Full Version : Can't look up while floating on surface of water or while clinging to ledge.

Hi there, how do I look up and around me when I am floating in the water? Currently I seem to be locked to just looking at a level plane of the water, or at the water itself.

Ie, in the demo, when you are floating in the water I can't look up at the ledge I'm supposed to boost up to to find out about the PDA. I can only look straight ahead and see the platform before the high ledge.

Similar problem while clinging to a ledge. I can't look up, only down and side to side.

While standing on the ground I seem to be fine, able to look all angles. I can also use the binoculars or the gun-zoom to some effect too, but I can't use that while in the water or clinging to a ledge.

Where is the old free-look key that I could use to swivel Lara's head around to look at he surroundings?

I've noticed the same thing. Most times there's nothing to see there but its still VERY annoying. The old freelook worked better IMHO

You can just look around using the mouse, right?

Yes, right. but at certain times there are limitations on where you can look. If I recall correctly the old "freelook" option let you look around in any direction anytime.....if I recall correctly :-)
