Iron Door level 7 HELP - Cant open door due to hardware

Post by Guara » Sat Apr 21, 2012 12:56 am

:oops: I’m stuck on the iron door at level 7. I’ve seen some videos on youtube about the solution, it seems that due to hardware limitations my games doesn’t run as smooth as it should, even if I turn all image settings downs, so I can’t time the ligthballs. Could someone be kind enough to get my gamesave, fish the puzzle and open the door for me?

Send me a PM.

Edit - I sent you one, just shoot me the file and I'll give it a whirl (my work computer isn't as nice as my home one, but I should be able to take care of it).

Before jumping to sarcasm..

He isn't the first person to mention hardware :p, I thought it was fun personally but that pillared hallway designer needs to be given a good talking to :evil:

I don't understand what the problem was with that. Did you play hard, so there were no clues or what? I got a note with the combination.

Without the note I can't imagine I'd ever have gotten past it.

I'm having this same issue right now. I just watched a video of someone else playing for the first time, and when they walk, there is no 'move-stop-move' like in my game. I honestly thought that's how the game was!

Someone mind helping me out as well? I've been attempting this damn thing for an hour and change now. :(

It's very hard. Your timing has to be very nearly flawless throughout. But... it's just an iron door. I don't remember what's in there but I doubt it's something you can't live without.

He says to the completionist. :P I'm trying to complete all the secrets.

It's not that I'm messing up the timing, it's that I seem to be unable to move as fast as I'm supposed to (I've watched a number of other videos, and people are moving faster than I've been able to move through my entire 20 hours of playing). So it's not that I can't get the timing of my button presses. It's that my system can't keep up.
