Not sure what level you're on as I haven't played the game in some time.

Level 15 Bug

I'm also stuck in the same place and found your message. When I try and install the update I get a message saying that its not necessary as its already updated. It won't install.

Thanks for any advice you can give.

I recall some problems at this level when I played through it. I believe the update did the trick.

What you may need to do is to back up your saved games to a separate folder away from where you installed the game. Then, uninstall the game and reboot.

Now, reinstall the game and run the update file. Once completed, restore the saved games to the game and attempt to proceed.

Good luck!

PS Isn't it wonderful that IM has saved games??

I got the three jewels, and I have to fight the final boss, but to do this I should arrive to the green door that it opens with the green jewel (at least, this is what I understand by the solutions in the net).

The problem is that I can't reach that damn door because it is on a lower floor and when I try to reach it I always die because of the height. I think that it should be there a beam to let u get down without dying, but there isn't any...I fear that this is one of the terrible bug that have ruined an otherwise great game...anyone can help?!?

In order to get to the door I stood backwards, facing the wall and rolled backwards and ended up surviving the fall.

You know, I've owned that game pretty much since the day it came out and I have never finished it. I have a different (and in my opinion more frustrating) problem. I made it all the way through the Aetherium to (what I assume is) the last boss monster. You have to get a mirror and let him fire at you. You use the mirror to reflect the shot back at him. Without fail, my N64 game will lock up on the third hit. Every time!

I did finish the PC version of the game...but that was about 3 years ago. I can't recall exactly now what it took to get through this problem.

My game has the same problem, Pier. It is a bug, and there is supposed to be a pillar you can "swim" down to get to the bottom. In my game, sometimes it's there, sometimes it's not. My advice is to just keep trying until the pillars are there. And everyone else, there is no god code for IM... at least not the N64 version.

Hope it's not BS.

Anyway, thanx to all for the help.

Thumbs up

Roll backward? It's simple don't you have a roll button? Well you have to face the wall, then press the down button at the same time as you press the roll button. If you can't do that then try holding on to the edge of the well edge and let go. I played it on the computer though so I don't know. Could you get down to the other doors? Then try going to that beam and run to the other door. Hope this helps!

I know how to fix it, cuz I use to have the exact same prob with my N64 IM. You just have to play that level right when you turn on your system. If you've been playing IM on your 63 for awhile, things, like the music, will mess up. The music has a lot of bugs in it. LOTS!!!!

Yeah, you have to; if you save it when the those "pillars" are screwed up, they will stay screwed up. Blame those lazy bastards at Factor 5! They did a poor job of testing that game. If you think the music sounds bad in IM, it's not, it's just that there are all those bugs in the system. Now trust me, you start that Aetherium level from the beginning when you turn on your console, and those pillars will be there. Oh, and make sure your whip is charged!
