Ok, so I'm in the Palawan level, I've gotten past the gate with help from Sophia and I've followed the hints around the game for a while. Now the X thing says that I have to open a crate or do something to it. I've tried hitting the control button near it, shooting it, whipping it, everything I can think of. What am I doing wrong or what should I do, folks?

Pokemon. Why'd it have to be pokemon?

Is the X is near a cable car ?
Please respond soon, and I will help you tonight

The X is right on top of the crate whenever I get level with it, meaning not on top of it. It's near a door with a face on it and one of those light generator things that were shining on the gong and rock pictures in the main chamber. And thanks for the quick reply!

I am going to take a look at the level (my short term memory is very short)

I will get back to you soon

Great! Thanks a LOT! I've been stuck on this one level for the past 2 days. And Hal Barwood thought it'd only take 2 hours to play each level... Bleh...

This... is one... insanely hard... game...

The box you want to get to is too cramped to open the side. Move the other boxes so that there is room, then open up the side of it.

The important box has a loose top. It will fall if allowed to.

You need to push and pull the smaller crates away from the big crate.

Yes once you've pushed/pulled all the crates away from the crate closest to the doors, the side of the crate will simply fall open. You will have to crawl in and get the pully. One you have it, make your way back to the carrage that is missing the pully. Push the small crate into position just behind it and quickly place the pully onto the carrage. (While this is happening, Russians will be shooting at you from across the lava) Once the pully is in place, a wall will explode and a bunch of Russians will charge in. Quickly jump from the crate and get into the carrage. Press the button and Indy will make is escape.
