do you also think this is the hardest 2x one?

phew, i tried it about 5 times, but always failed...
first... emitting the stairs for you partner is really hard, but can be handled after you did it some time, but then emitting with the sensors?:mad:

I realized that you can skip the first and the second level stair, but still its hard to coordinate with your partner

do you have any tips or want to provide help for me? this is the last level i need objects in :hero:

(maybe wrong forum?)

Yeah that WAS tough... although the first Boom Town one was hard, though just because it was kinda poorly designed...

I think that the Temples int music was gained through that puzzle? That may have been the hardest music to get... or not :/.

I think there was also lag when I did it...

Out of all the 2x sections in the Story Levels, this has to be it. I mean, it wasn't THAT hard but when you look at the other 2 player sections this has to be the hardest.

When I tried to do it with my friends I nearly cried. First of all, it didn't help that there were 4 of us and not 2. Secondly, three of them (we were alternating between players... there were 5 of us) had never played the game before.

I don't know why I even tried ;_;

It was much easier online though... I forgot who I did it with. It might of been TheMonkeySlayer.

U did it? Lucky.
Boom Town's first one, i cheated. The bombs in the house just push to the bank and boom them.
I have tried magicians palace 2 player 6 times and haven't done it. Just too hard. Usually at the sensor emitters.....:mad:

Wait a minute, that wasn't how you were suppose to get it?! :O

Me and a friend blew up half of the bank when we pushed the bombs out of the way, so we figured that was how we were suppose to get them! It worked, regardless! :p

And yeah, this 2x is pretty hard... still haven't completed it. :/

So if anybody needs help, just add me...

boomtown is easy when you know how to get the bomb into the first cart

People made too big of a fuss about Boom Town's 2 player section. I did it first time :\

I've got one tip.... The player walking below should just keep waling so you just have constant speed. So it's way easier for the player above to predict when the blocks are coming.

The hardest part of it is it needs perfect precision and the latency isn't forgiving in that aspect.

Also the one shot buttons in the first part don't always respond the way you want, so sometimes the person's rhythm is messed up... what I did was send one person up and the other suicides to join at the checkpoint above.

The next parts require just some decent coordination, whoever's activating the sensor switches needs to make sure the other player has sure footing, while still going moderately fast; tricky.

Not to mention that you only have one chance to get to this area in the first place. If you all die while those blocks are falling, you're screwed (not that this part is too hard though).

Before I realized you could suicide up to the second checkpoint when someone gets up there, the group I was in kept falling down from the top while pressing the buttons, and if we did make it to the top, we kept failing to do the last part.

It's a little easier now knowing exactly what needs to be done, but those first times through some of these areas were a pain.

I still say the first level in the Wilderness is the most obnoxious multiplayer area... (requiring 4 players is hard enough)

It was hard?
I didn't find it that hard.
Oh well!
