Hi everyone, I've owned "Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II" for about four years now and have been severly stumped on a particular part of the game in level 6. I've been searching all over the internet for advice and have even looked at the various walkthroughs, but still can't figure this particular detail out (I finally put the game away in frustration and have just now pulled it out again).
I have the feeling it's probably something totally minute, but if it is then please don't clobber me too hard.
Here it is: in level 6, I've managed to get to the area of the palace itself where you have to connect and cross over the two-part extending bridge. This is the bridge where you have to go into one room, flip the switch for one of the bridge's sides, then use Force Speed to rush to the second switch and flip it also.
While I have done that, the problem is that I have still have not been able to get across. I've have tried doing the above, then persistently using Force Speed to race beneath the bridge, up the ram, around and trying to run across while the pieces were still in two, or at the very least still close enough together so I could use Force Jump to jump from one moving portion to another. But I simply haven't been able to make it, and the switch you find in the small room area once you've gone up the ramp only extends one end for a short period of time (at least when I've tried it). Is there something special you have to do to make the bridge slabs actually come together and "stick"? Is there a way to get them to stay put where they are, or am I just supposed to keep trying to run up and around until I finally make it?
What is it I'm doing wrong? I've done explording throughout all the other areas I could find but have been unable to find any other way to either get up there or to help me in the matter. Any assistance at all would be greatly appreciated it.
Thanks in advance.
