Just started playing the game and I've understood the waterbottle function, but how and when do I use the medkit?
Can't find anything about it in the manual.
Have some other questions also, but I'll guess the answer is no?:
- Is there any Quicksave/load feature?
- Is there any Pause function?
...I'm used to have these functions when playing adventure-games and it seems a bit annoying to be without them!
Another issue though...(referring to the medkit again).
I've experienced that it's quite tricky to improve health in the middle of a fight or combat....so when I'm in a fight or combat and my health gets low, it would be nice to quickly improve the health with the canteen or the medkit as you told me. Is there any shortcut key that provides this? Or is there any other solution to "quick-improve-health"?
Then again, it'd be little irrealistic:
"Hold on a sec... I'll have to patch myself up... you want any antiseptic? There... much better. Okay, where were we? Thanks for your patience, by the way. Where's my hat?"
Actually, there is a hotkey for the medkit. I discovered it quite by accident, so I'll spare you the trouble: press 0.
(I refer to using these hotkeys as "speed-dialing my weapons". )
BTW, you wanna know when else medkits are useful? Well, later on, you'll find a couple of levels - the whole German U-boat base (Peng Lai Island) until the Black Dragon Fortress - where there are NO water fountains whatsoever, only medkits.
No, but unfortunately, I do have a list of when hotkeys inexplicably DON'T work - most notably in the second level in Hong Kong, you cannot use 3 and 5 to toggle between your shotgun and Mauser pistol (Indy does not have his Webley revolver with him on that level, only a "borrowed" Mauser ).
Open up the "Play Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb" file, the one that lets you select "Play" and "help" and stuff like that.
Select Help, then View Readme.
Here is the quote from that file:
It is also possible for a user to access inventory using the
number row. Each key of the row has a preset inventory item.
These keys cannot be rebound.
1 - Fists, no item/weapon
2 - Whip
3 - Handguns (revolver, Luger, Masuer)
4 - Blades (machete, Turkish knife)
5 - Machine gun
6 – Spear gun
7 - Grenade
8 - PaCheng
9 – Canteen
If you have an item in Indy’s hand you cannot switch to the
machete or Grenade by pressing 4 or 7. You must put the item
in his hand away first.
Note that these commands do not work with the Numpad, only the
regular keyboard numbers.
Hope that helps.
And always read the readmes, my boy, and you will save yourself a lot of troube.
I don't mean that someone posted a list already; I meant that Clintwood said "Do you have any other 'hidden' shortcut keys? Perhaps there is a list somewhere?" He was asking for a list of unlisted hotkeys.
