View Full Version : How do I swing from pole to pole?

I'm having difficulties with a part in the first training session in Coach Oleander's mind.

I have to get up a tall wall by swinging and jumping from pole to pole. Jumping from one pole to another is easy, as long as I'm facing the right way. After a couple of jumps, halfway up the first part of the wall, I have to turn around to jump in the other direction.

How the h*** do I change direction (so that Ras faces the other way) when I'm hanging from a pole? If I press UP, Ras climbs towards the wall, and if I press DOWN, he climbs out from the wall. LEFT/RIGHT only starts him swinging, and SPACE doesn't seem to work unless I'm facing the way I want to jump, I don't think I can jump backwards.

Help is deeply appreciated. This is really annyoing, since it's not actually a puzzle.

As far as I remember you use the "use" key, which is by default return on the PC I think. It also pops up briefly at one point I think, though you probably missed it while being distracted by the jumping around.

I think the key you're looking for is f.

F is the answer. Forgot to try that one. Thanks a lot!

No problem. I think it tells you when you explore the kids cabin area.
