    FAQ -

    Q: During the cutscene with T-Rex, Lara gets killed. What am I doing wrong?
    A: If T-Rex is eating you during the cutscene, you're probably pressing the wrong buttons or pressing too late. Have your hints turned on and press the buttons appearing on the screen (e.g. left, right and etc) as soon as they appear, don't wait too long.
    Q: I have my hints turned on but I still can't see the buttons on the screen, why?
    A: Sadly, we have no solution for that, it's sort of a bug. Read about it in this thread.

    Q: I shoot the Centaurs and they get stunned, but I still can't away their shield. What is wrong?
    A: If you stun the Centaurs but can't take away their shield no matter how close you stand and how many times you try to throw grapple - You must've stunned them without using headshot. They can be stunned without headshot, but you won't be able to take away their shield.
    Q: How can I perform a headshot?
    A: Using adrenalin dodge. Scroll up and read the tutorial for adrenalin dodge under "Lara's Moves" section.

    Q: I'm in the great pyramid and a human-like creature comes in. I try to shoot it but it keep shooting fireballs back at me and does everything same as me. How do I kill it?
    A: The creature is Doppelganger, otherwise known as "Bacon Lara". It's an imitator and will do anything the same as you. You need to think of a creative way to kill it, without shooting it. If you're stuck, under "Boss Strategies" section (scroll up) there's a link to a youtube video, showing how to kill it. You can also read about it in the walkthrough guides posted above.

    That's it so far. If you guys have anymore suggestions, guides, links and anything that you think will be useful, post away and I'll edit this post. If you have more FAQ, post that too. Also please correct me if I have any spelling mistakes, thank you

    This is great & should be marked as Sticky!!!
    I suggest adding some Great Pyramid tips and videos. If no one wants to do it, I can look for it tomorrow.
    If this topic gets the Sticky status, every new "need help with the Centaurs/T-rex/AD etc." topic should be deleted, there are too many of them.

    Oh I saw plenty helpful videos on youtube, including that famous shortcut for the third platform (the one with the grapple, avoiding the poles). I'll add it later on today, thanks for the idea

    Edit: I added 3 good videos, tell me if you have any better ones and I'll update

    Finally! No more POINTLESS HELP ME threads about the centaurs.
    I didn't need ANY help in TRA. The centaur fight took me about 20 mins coz I didn't know about the shields until I saw the circle handle and guessed you needed to take it off them.

    Thumbs Up

    Thank you Rita, that was very considerate of you to put this together.

    Could I ask you to put www.tombraiderfanguide.com in the Walkthrough Guides section? Thank you.

  6. #6
    Treeble I will gladly add the link, but I can't seem to find the walkthrough in that site Perhaps you could give me a direct link to the walkthrough?

    Edit: Oh never mind, I downloaded the guide I'll update the post right away.

    Most EXCELLENT work, Rita! ! !
    Now, do we need to send non-English speaking folks somewhere else, first? http://www.google.com/ (Click Language Tools)
    Or are there simply BETTER foreign sites to send them to, for TRA info?

    (I've been doing way too many C-code mods within some English/German software, while helping some GREAT Russians modders and also assisting them with certain Japanese titles, believe it or not.

    So a VERY GOOD translator is a necessity, except with Japanese, which is like IMPOSSIBLE to still understand, even when it is translated.

    You can download the fan guides on the top of that website, in the flash menu. You can download there a English and a Dutch walktrough with a nice design, but also interviews and other stuff. Double click on the icons and you get it...

    Big Grin

    Good idea, Rita ! I'm just going to repeat what others have already said.
    Now... if this thread could be made into a Sticky thread...

    I've personally been waiting for someone to create a TRA Strategy thread for new players since it seemed like almost every day they always ask about the same things.

    Please mods, make this a Sticky ?

    Thumbs Up nice work!

    Sweet ...

  14. #14
    Rita, maybe an interesting link: http://youtube.com/watch?v=omfOwUjX8to
    It's a promotion trailer for the unofficial fan guide, thinks maybe it's interesting to add the link after the fan guide link?

  15. #15
    Thank you guys, I'm glad that you like it Keep your ideas coming

    As for german/dutch (not sure), tombraidergirl.com is a very good site and it also has forums and stuff. I'm sure that there are folks here from all around the world, we can ask them to suggest good sites in other languages and then I'll add a section in the main post with all the links What do you think?

    Everything that is marked blue is sort of an answer to FAQ so I'll re-write them as a q-a If anyone else has any FAQ to add, be my guest! I'll happily add it

    Btw, is there a limit to how big one post can be?

    Good idea, this way people will know what it is without being forced to download it first

    Rita, I have seen all sorts of "translation tricks", even to the point of having little flags, like that Google Language Tools has. . . (These HTML tricks will actually have a return address, back to the original site, but then in the language of the visitor's choice.)

    So, simply something like a list of translators sounds about right?
    Do you need a translator for our site?
    (First, copy our address here and then paste it, below.)
    http://www.google.com/ (Click Language Tools)
    http://babelfish.altavista.com/
    http://www.online-translator.com/ (Click Translate WWW)
    (Rita, did you notice that little flag-trick on Website Translation by PROMT? And of course, having this list of translators, first, makes quite a bit of sense.)

    ... Jim ...

    Jim I'm sorry but I'm not sure I understand o_o I speak russian. Let's say I have no clue in english. In order to understand what you're saying to me in english, I need to go to google and use a translating site to translate what you're saying to russian?

  18. #18
    Do you need a translator for our site? (Language translation?)
    (перевода?) (¿traducción de la lengua?) (Sprachenübersetzung?)
    (traduction de langue ?) (traduzione di lingua?)
    (言語翻訳か。?) (语言翻译?) (언어 번역?)

    ( First, copy our address. )
    ( Во-первых, скопировать адрес. )
    ( D'abord, copier notre adresse. )
    ( Zuerst unsere Adresse kopieren. )
    ( Primero, copiar nuestra dirección. )
    ( In primo luogo, copiare il nostro indirizzo. )
    ( 首先,我們複製地址 )
    ( 最初に、私達の住所をコピーしなさい。 )
    ( 첫째로, 우리의 주소를 베끼십시오. )

    http://www.google.com/ (Click Language Tools)
    http://babelfish.altavista.com/
    http://www.online-translator.com/ (Click Translate WWW)

    (Please, try it again, Rita.)
    And just use the first short section to point down to my longer reply, here, perhaps?

  19. #19
    I'm very sorry Jim that it took me so long to reply. To be honest with you, I had to ask some help to understand what you mean -blushes-

    I'm not sure if translating the text would be a good idea, because the russian translated line "Copy our address for these sites" is "Copies our address these sites", which doesn't make much sense, and I don't speak the other languages to know if they're understandable Anyway, how do I make a link to your reply?

    Btw, what if we make a thread and ask for people who speak other languages to find us good sites? I can look for a good russian site with walkthrough guides and stuff, and someone could find good japanese sites and etc. This way instead of translating, one could visit a site in his language. What do you think?

    Let me know, and once again - Terribly sorry for the awfully long reply.

    Rita

  20. #20
    ( First, copy our address. )
    ( Во-первых, скопировать адрес. )

    Please, try it again, Rita. I got a little simplier and more direct!

    (Folks visiting sites, with other languages, are probably used to their translation needs. . . So, simply providing a variety of translation sites might be all that is required, of us?) And those are the very best ones, that I know of, btw.

  21. #21
    Oh that's better For some reason, that translation site doesn't translate the word "our"

    I'll get them into the sticky
