Not grabbing onto pipes? (Resolved!)
I finally got around to playing this game; got through part of the first level, had to quit. (Forgot to save). While re-playing the first level, I find I cannot jump the gap and grab onto the pipes. She'll land on them, they'll be in my sights, but she won't grab them. (Even while pressing shift, althoguh I may be getting the controls mixed up with AC) I did have trouble wiht pies in the tutorial, but it seems like I'm hitting them, even using reaciton time, too!

So, is this a bug, and is there a fix? (According to a quick google, one site said to delete some config files; did that, didn't fix anything. :( )


Edit 9/18/2013: Resolved, I got through the part, thanks!

Don't press shift, shift is let go.

Yes what he said.

Sounds good, I'll give it another shot! (I'll learn all the controls eventually!)

Thanks! I'll let you all know if it works. :)

I tried again without pressing shift, and it sstill wo't grab on. One time, she almost grabbed it (Had the ahnds out, etc.) but I still fell off. I'm going to try uninstalling/re-installing the game.

If it's the part I had trouble with, aim for the pipe on the left hanging from the top, not the one on the right that goes all the way to the ground.

Also, I can't help but feel I need some of Batman's toys from Arkham City hahaha XD

It's the first part after the tutorial. I'm going to un/re-install it, and I'll try to aim for the other pipe lol. Thanks!

I've actually been having trouble with pipes as well... I learned that when you go/jump towards them, you have to be facing it at the right angle. If you're a bit off, you'll fall. Pressing shift is also a no go as stated above.

Yeah, I ahd trouble with them in the tutorial, too. :/

Yeah i'm having trouble with this too, but what is the angle you were talking about, i mean is it upwards, downwards rightish,leftish?
Kei Sep 18, 2013 @ 6:13am 
i found out XD its upwards a little bit, right when your gonna grab it flick the camera upwards just a little, and she will grab on.

Yeah, sorry for not updating, I did get past it. It was just pretty picky/tricky. Thanks again everyone! (I forgot I posted in here and I don't go on Steam too much, hah!)

It doesn't prompt you to, but you need to press the left mouse button to grab the pipe.

I had terrible trouble with that part of the tutorial too. She would just NOT grab the pipe! It's fine in normal gameplay though.

I cant do it still, on the mission after the tutorial

Record and upload a video so we can see what you're doing wrong.
