View Full Version : Altair/Maria Dream Sequence bug?

05-17-2010, 06:50 PM
Ok in AC2, I am to the point where I just got down showing off what I learned from being enzio to the blonde chick & heading back have the dream sequence in which I am Altair following someone based on what I've read is Maria.

Anyhow I climb up the tower she runs into get to the little balcony thing but I can't go any higher... there is a beam that sticks out with a lamp but I can't climb onto it.

Which as far as I can tell is only way to continue, so is this a bug... known or otherwise? Can I get around it?

See 'Dream Sequence Workaround' topic heading 'Hints and Tips' forum. Search is your friend.

Really, Guys. You never had jumping lessons? You just get on the beam.

Dont try to jump it from the side, but from the front. Worked with me.

Lol that part should be a test. If you cant get past it, turn off the game and play something for simple people: Call of Duty.

Well the fact you can't wall run the short distance up like usual does throw one off...

It's like this. Sit on the ledge opposite the tower with the lamp pole. Hold shift, press space. Get's you up no prob. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Nicely done http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
I struggled with it, but I never got to the stage where I had to ask other people to help me out. Can't really understand why Ubi didn't try to sort it out, cause I think that post's the most difficult bit in the game http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Seriously, testers musta had too much difficulty on that bit if THAT many people are complaining about it?

Maybe they thought it made the game harder, which allows more enjoyment?
Oh, and here's a vid if anyone else needs help: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LDj_jPn25Yc

That's the hardest? Wait until you get to the last assassin's tomb in Venice, as people seem to have plenty to say about that too.

Actually, I found climbing that tower a lot harder in AC1 than AC2.
