Chapter 3 stuck
Chapter 3 level 2, the place where you hear Kra scream the first time. There are two large doors, both locked, a small door, also locked, with a camera above it, a vent, you guessed it, also locket. Also there is one of those gravity grids or whatever with a pit behind it and a guy in a fenced off area. In the other levels I always found a way somehow, but in this part I can't see a way through. I tried jumping the gap, it's way too far. I tried running up the wall, but it is way too high and jumping from wall to wall always lets me fall to my death. I don't see any buttons or crawlspaces or ledges. Plz help :(

ok I made it. It wasn't clear that I was able to make a long-jump there.

Yeah, I still need to introduce that better.

I was trying to wall-jump in the pit for nearly an hour, then I read this thread in the discussions about the part after that and thought "sooooo there has to be something about this grav field, right?". I can totally see your predicament (is that the right word?) with the situation. In half life it was shown in the turtorial and before going to Xen you were told how to use the long jump generator. But you are not using a turtorial. Which is still good, I think. It is old school, trying to figure out everything on your own, but it is still hard at some points. Is it maybe possible to show the player how this works through pictures? Like warning signs near every grav field, showing drawings of things the aliens are not allowed to do with them. For example throwing trash in, using the back thingy for transporting items through, or not jumping through them. Just throwing around some ideas. ;)

Yeah, that area is sort of supposed to be the tutorial since you encounter a similar gravity field right after it that you are supposed to use to jump. The area at the beginning of c3m2_prison is the "tutorial" since you don't really have anywhere else to go, but it's not obvious enough. I still need to introduce the idea better, but I am not sure how.
