Metro 2033 "Armory" section glitch?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey

After getting back into gaming a couple months ago, I found out about Metro 2033 (which I'm sure all of you know of). In the Armory "level" (or whatever you want to classify it as) a major glitch is happening. It seems that, whenever I try to follow the guy in my handcuffs, I can never catch up. I have seen walk-throughs where the people are running and they are right behind him. I know what I am supposed to do, and I try running after him, but it seems as if it stops me for a few seconds after he starts running. During the walk-throughs, the player is immediately behind the guy. This, however, does not happen to me. Even if I start running right after the movie part, my "helper" is too far to catch up.

I can't really explain it, but to put it bluntly, my game is not letting me start fast enough to run with him.

Please don't tell me "you just gotta run, or press shift". I know how to play the game and I know what I am supposed to do

I have heard that this game has many glitches and that sometimes people overwrite saved game files so the game thinks they beaten a certain level when they cannot fix something.

Can anyone help me with this? Or can anyone send me a file to overwrite of the "Armory" Level so I can keep on playing? And If someone could send me a file, how would I overwrite the game with a steam download?

There are several sections of the game made that way, to make it thrilling if I remember reading about it in their forums. I was having similar issues the first time last year. I just kept trying until I passed. I played it twice and to play it again now, I am sure going to find a way out of it again. I don't remember the tricks but it certainly is not a glitch.

I have been trying to pass this part for 3 days. I even had to turn down the difficulty to easy from hardcore, but I still can't make it... :/

It took me about 2 months to complete the game for the first time.

i found the solution to the problem on sum website and i finally passed all guards without being caught.
so the solution is set ur video settings to directx9 (dx9) and resolution to 600*800 and game quality 2 low.thn restart ur game and u pass the guard fine.
thank me latter.
