Jungle Expedition 2
Level by Kevin Webber (Kevin18) (January, 2008)
Walkthrough by Harry Laudie
[Note 1] This level requires two new moves that were not documented. However, I could not do the moves on my PC and I am very grateful to eRIC for supplying savegames around the problems. The savegames are available at trle-community.net forum in the "Stuck in a Custom Level" thread about "Jungle Expedition 2". [End note 1]
[Note 2] I found by experimenting with other games that the tomb4.exe file from "Christmas Feeling" by Different Guy would perform the required moves on my PC. But the tomb.exe file supplied in the author's zip file did not. I do not know why? [End note 2]
You start in front of a closed gate. Go south and jump over the hole that is hidden by the large plant. Pick up the small waterskin (Kleine Feldflasche) from the ground. Climb down the ladder on the south side of the hole. At the bottom, shoot five green dinosaurs that attack your legs. Get into the water and fill the small waterskin. The water near the ladder is shallow enough for the task. You have to face north or south to fill it. Go south and go behind the waterfall and pick up a small medipack. You may see some harmless butterflies, fireflies, and monkeys in the area, Go behind the column with the ladder and pull down a jump switch. You get a cut scene of a gate opening and two raptors.
Go west and shoot the two raptors. Go through the open gate and enter a small room. Shoot two bats and pull up into the crawl space in the south-east corner. Pull down a wall switch and get a cut scene of a gate opening by the bridge. Get down from the opening and back into the room. Pick up a key (Dorfschlussel) from the north-east corner floor. Exit east and go to the bridge. Cross the bridge and pick up a large medipack at the middle of the bridge. Continue south and enter the open gate in the south wall.
Enter the next jungle area. Go south a little ways and then retreat to shoot three raptors that attack from the south. Go south until the ground starts to slope downwards. Go to the north-east corner and pick up red shotgun shells. Continue south to some broken bridge pieces on the ground. Go to the east wall for red shotgun shells. Go to the west wall under the bridge and pick up a small medipack. Pull up onto the column to the right of the bridge. Stand jump to the south and grab the bridge. Pull up and go north-west and pick up red shotgun shells.
Go back to the bridge and jump the gap to land on the east part of the bridge. Go east and use the key in the key lock to open the gate. The gate opens before the key is actually used. This was noted in the author's notes. Enter the open gate and follow the tunnel. You enter an area with native huts. Shoot three small dinosaurs that run up the hill towards you. Go north and east to pick up flares and blue shotgun shells beside a fence. Return west and south to the tree in front of the hut. Go between the tree and the hut and pull down the jump switch on the east side of the tree. You get a cut scene of the gate in the hut as it opens and the inside of the hut.
Go south and east to find the open gate. Enter the hut and shoot a native. Stand on the east side of the fire and face west. Use the water from the waterskin to extinguish the fire. Grab the wall above the fire to the west. Climb up the wall and pull up onto the roof of the hut. Go west and slide down the roof to land in front of a pole. Climb the pole and back flip onto an upper area in the tree branches. Go south-west and pick up a key (Schlussel nit auf wandiger Gravur) off the tree branch. From there, go east into the corner area. Wander around and you should fall into a hole and pick up the shotgun. Get out of the hole and climb the pole down back to the hut area. Safety drop to the ground and go to the south-west corner for the exit tunnel. Follow the tunnel to the bridge and safety drop to the ground.
Go south and use the key to open the gate in the south wall. Turn around and shoot a raptor. Enter the tunnel and stop at the end. Slide down a slope and jump over the fire at the bottom. Shoot three natives, and with patience, you can shoot the raptor while it is still in the cage. Go east and see a crawl space. Crawl through into the outside area. Go north to pick up red shotgun shells. Go east to the wall and pick up a key (Schlussel mit Goldverzierung) from the ground. I found nothing else. Return through the crawl space. Immediately turn to the right and go north into the dark passageway. At the end, pull down the jump switch on the north wall. Return to the room and the raptor cage is open.
Enter the cage and pick up red shotgun shells near the dead body. Go to the south-west corner and pull down the wall switch. Exit the cage and slowly enter the open gate in the south wall. Crawl under the skeleton on the wall spikes. Go to the south-west corner and crawl under the fence. Enter the tunnel in the west wall. Use the key to open the gate. Enter the room and shoot a raptor. I think that "Mission gescheitert" means "mission failed" because you died.
Enter the tunnel in the north wall corner that is well hidden by hanging vines. Continue down the tunnel to enter a cave. Run down the hill and the camera view changes. Run to the east wall. Stand near the wall torch as five green rocks roll behind you. Go north to the bottom of the hill. Jump over the spike pit trap and grab the edge of a north wall opening. Pull up and follow the tunnel.
[New move required] Grab the crevice at the end of the tunnel. Use CTRL (grab), ALT (jump), and UP ARROW and Lara should jump up to grab the edge of the tunnel above. Pull up into the tunnel. If you have problems, use a savegame.
Enter the next room and shoot a native. Go to the block in the north-west corner and pull down the wall switch. You hear a gate open somewhere. Hop onto the block and jump up to grab the crevice in the north wall. Shimmy to the right and use the CTRL, ALT, and UP ARROW move again to grab the higher crevice. Shimmy to the right and around the corners until you stop at a wall.
[New move required] Use CTRL (grab), and briefly the END (roll) and DOWN ARROW and Lara should twist around and grab the crevice behind her. Shimmy to the right around the corners of the block until you stop at a wall. Use the CTRL, END, and DOWN ARROW move again and twist around to jump into a tunnel. If you have problems, use a savegame.
Follow the tunnel to a small room. Do not run off the end of the platform or you will land on a spike trap. Stand jump over the spikes and into the small room. There is a closed gate in the south wall. That gate is tightly timed for later. Slowly walk to the west and wall spikes pop out of the wall. Crawl under the wall spikes and into the tunnel. Go to the end of the tunnel and overlook a deep pit. It is possible to survive a drop into the pit but you cannot get back out.
Grab the ceiling and monkey swing to the opening in the west wall. Follow the tunnel to enter a small room and shoot a raptor. There is a wall switch behind a cage as you enter the room. Pull down the wall switch at the west wall. The cage opens. Go into the cage and pull down the wall switch. A gate opens in the south wall tunnel. Go to the south-east corner and pull down the high jump switch on the east wall. A second gate opens in the south tunnel.
Go to the end of the tunnel and save the game for a very tight timed run. Pull down the wall switch and get a cut scene of the gate opening in the room at the other end of the monkey swing. Wait until the wall switch resets. Pull down the wall switch again. Roll and sprint with a right curve out of the tunnel. Sprint down the entrance tunnel and stop at the end. Grab the tunnel ceiling and start to monkey swing. With luck you can use the arrow keys to cut the corners of the monkey swing and save a second. Drop into the east wall tunnel. Sprint down the tunnel and use ALT to roll under the wall spikes. You have to be lucky doing the roll. If you hit the wall spikes you are dead even if have full health. Turn to the right and sprint into the open gate. You have to be lucky here again. If the gate closes you can be stuck. You have to use sprint and not a simple run. Continue sprinting to the south and the level ends.
