@Chris Tate Thanks, I hope your family member is faring well. Part of it was my own long term health issues(fibromyalgia mainly among others) but as there are so many cross symptoms it is easy to confuse one thing with another, literally only started to feel slightly better this week and now of course I am out job hunting so getting very little time to myself.
@Ortu I am sorry this took so long after promising a much shorter time frame, I am still playing with it though I do have some further input. So I have presumably killed Ledelle - from what I recall from the first time you did upload this a long while back she runs out the opposing doors to the ones she starts at? It took several goes at her before I finally got a vague handle of the combat, I say vague because although it now runs smooth after reducing settings I have a dumb ass left hand...Dupuytrens disease plus Garrod Pads...let me put it this way, I get wasted in BF2 compared to how I used to be able to play! I also get blurry vision as the day progresses due to fatigue even with my specs on, must sound like I am an old man but I have not long entered the boundary of middle age!
Anyway, she made what I thought was a dying sound, but just disappeared. I think maybe she fell through the floor or the door, but when I turned round good ole Roccio was there to make sure I died hehe
But then instead of a restart I was outside on my lonesome. The building was half in/on the water and half on the beach(I assume intended as with the previous version from waaaay back I am sure it was a little more inland than that). obviously I took a quick look round and saw what I expected, nothing(I think last time there was the odd tree and a path?)
It is also perhaps worth me mentioning that I have not yet bothered with the key search for the door or the crate for that matter, I will get to it, but I decided to pop upstairs and take a look-see, I went to the wheel with the rope and investigated, I did take a few swipes at the rope but it did not cut it. Roccio did however say something along the lines of "well I did give you a chance" while I went to combat mode on that same floor, but he didn't actually budge from the floor above. So I popped up there as well to say hello, went straight to combat mode to see how hard it was to defend and attack him, did not go well lol! On restart I repeated the same process as I had noticed the Samurai looking dude stayed back, so after attacking Roccio I pulled back to see which of the two would come at me but they both stayed put, I think that is maybe intended behaviour or perhaps me going into combat mode on the middle floor making him state he had given me a fair chance was perhaps intended for this fight? I figured maybe if he was in the chance giving mood originally then maybe he wasn't interested in beating the crap out of me, not unless I messed with Ledelle that is. Needless to say that is when I finally went and did her in only to see her disappear.
Couple of other things, when you face the wheel that says cutting the rope might prove a good distraction I found that I fooled myself into thinking the wheel was important when in fact I should have gone down the side where the rope actually is, I fooled myself because the E and F notification/icons that pop up do so intermittently if you stand near the end of the wheel - the number of times I tried realigning myself to get the icons to show was pretty dumb of me lol. Also if you happen to search the crates on the middle floor near the wall there is a medium sized gap in between them that I had a lot of difficulty getting out of mostly because the camera can get funky moving around way to much. I have also made the error of going for the shadowy fella, hes almost as tough as me in RL hahaha!
All that said, I am not done with this yet, I did enjoy it a bit too much, I think for me the combat is a bit too much not because it is too much but because I forget how lame my left hand is, I frequently buy new cups/mugs because I also forget I can't trust it to hold on safely and end up dropping them. Good thing I don't have a carpeted floor!
PS (unrelated) has anyone noticed how when you are typing up a post the word Rocco passes the spell check?( I kept misspelling Roccio when I noticed, but could only find Rocco as an Italian name when I googled it).
