Question ET Great Hall Balcony

I'm stuck in the third room in the Great Hall--the room where you drop the chandelier on the Nazis. Supposedly, you're supposed to go to this balcony, but I can't get there. Can you continue swinging after you've climbed up the chain, or can you turn while swinging? Or is there some other way . . .?

On the Xbox, the same control that moves Indy also will make him swing again after he climbs. He can climb and turn with the camera control. (Only while not climbing.) I could only make this jump from one point on the chain. Too high no go, too low no go.

Unhappy

Well, thanks for the help, but I forgot to mention that I'm running ET on my PC. Unlike Xbox, the same buttons are used to swing, and to go up and down the rope, and once you start climbing, you can't swing anymore, because the controls have reverted to climbing mode. Oh well.

Try holding your whip before the jump to the chain. Once there, jump off and immediately swing

Ok, here is a walkthrough for that part:

[SPOILER

CUT SCENE: Not good. Camera shows you the path around the
hall on that tiny ledge.

Hug the wall on your right and sneak around to where you
saw the lever. Pull the lever.

CUT SCENE: Watch as the huge chandalier crushes Indy's
foes. Ouch!

Climb down using the ladder on your right and go to the
aftermath of that little "accident". Pick up all the
Lugers and the throwing knives.

Now climb back up the ladder and use your whip to swing
over to the chain and now swing on the chain over to the
balcony.

Proceed into the room and observe the bottles on your left
and the chairs around the room (You'll need them in a
second). Open the door at the rear of the room on the left
wall. Some friendly visitors will come join you. Use all
available weaponry to defeat them.

Now go into that room on the left and grab the key off the
table under the window. Pick up the throwing knife and the
Luger ammo. Return to the main room and go through the door
across the way.

Now go down the stairs and open the library doors on your
left.[/SPOILER]




stuck in an eternity of sunshine and chocolate.

Well, thanks for all the help, but the real problem were the controls I was using. I didn't realize it, but the keys I used to move forward and backward are also the keys used to begin swinging again, namely the arrow keys. All I had to do was change a few controls to the default set, and I was fine. Kind of embarrasing.

Don't worry. I had the same problem. They aren't excatly the best controls for a game.
