Where Am I !? - The Great IGI2 Screenshot Quiz !

Forums 

Well, i've decided to take some screenshots and you have to guess where i am ! Level and location within that level (roughly). Some are easy, some are not, and i think one or two are quite fiendish, even if i do say so myself ! 25 screen grabs from all the levels of IGI2, EXCEPT the Ancient Temple level, which crashes my machine if i try and play it ...

Also, i've blotted out any of the countdown timers which occur on timed levels, and turned off the weapons legend, and always switched to the knife before taking the shot. No clues ! :p

I expect some high scores from our knowledgable users !

The above link is a screendump of the answers, so you can check your score. But no cheating !!!!!! :p :p :p

Great idea, Dragunov! Anyway, wouldn't it be better to send you those answers via a private message? You know, I don't want to spoil the fun :)

Yeah, if you like !

I have read your PM's ... sending you your score :p

I'll give you 23/25 !

Although you virtually got 25/25 really ... 9 & 19 were the ones you almost got right but chose the wrong one ! :p

You can check the spoiler link in the original post to see my answers ;)

Yeah, I've checked it already before posting my replies (just kidding :) ). But seriously, I haven't checked it till I was done with the answers.

That room in the Weather Station level - well, errare humanum est :) , isn't it? As for that pic from the Ambush level, well, I didn't notice that IGI helicopter in the distance at all:-(. But I really should've been aware of the fact that the color of that "transmitter" is different in Island Assault (when compared to Border Crossing). Anyway, great idea, this quiz! I will consider making my own as well!

OK Skorcel ...

I have no idea where number 5 is ... :(

Excellent score, Dragunov! All the pics you've described were correct answers, and as for that 5th one - well... I won't tell you more that this: Weather Station Level... Try to find it :)

QUOTE: Try to find it :)
I cant ! :mad: :(

Are you sure its on this (Weather Station) level ? It dont seem to fit graphically ...

BTW I have managed to get on board the patrol Helicopter that comes in when the alarm is first raised ...

Damn! How come? Ironically, I've tried the same thing yesterday as well, but no matter how hard I tried, it never worked:-(

I was jumping like a madman (either from the ground or from the nearby crates), tried throwing grenades in hope that the blast will carry me a bit higher (btw, do you remember that "infamous" trick in one of the Doom 1 levels called "Mt. Erebus", where if you wanted to access a bonus level you first had to pick up an invulnerability and then jump on an otherwise unaccessible place using the blast from your own rocket?), but still I was unsuccessful... I guess you must've jumped on one of the helicopter's sidewings or wheels in order to achieve that, isn't it? Or maybe you've done it when it was flying over that house in the beginning of the level (since it flies quite low there, if I remember it correctly)... Anyway, I'll have a second try soon
:)

As for that 5th pic - well, I'm not lying :) It's the same Weather Station level! Just try to find it! I too discovered it only recently (cca 1-2 months ago). Don't worry - you don't have to "leave the target area" (as George Clooney a.k.a. your mission director tells you when you try to wander a bit :) ) in order to find it!

OK Mr Skorcel ... i will continue the search ! :)

HA ! To get on the Helicopter is a bit of a trick. I actually think the manouevre i did might work on other levels where a helicopter lands ... ;)

OK, Dragunov. Next time (but ONLY if you write my nickname correctly), I will tell you the exact location where I took that 5th pic :)

Oh, and btw... Did you mean something like this? Or perhaps this? Piece of cake :) You just have to be exactly where the helicopter lands, isn't it? Too bad I didn't discover it sooner...

:) ... not yet, i'll keep trying to figure it out !

Yeah, i was actually trying to see if the helicoper would kill me as i stood under the front wheel as it descended ... next thing i know i 'popped' up into the cockpit, and from there into the belly. If you go to the back you go up an invisible 'step' which allows you to jump through onto the roof, and i guess you've sussed you need to stand on the tail or the wings to make the copter take off. I didny know it was anywhere beneath the copter, i just assumed it was under the wheels as they touch the ground ...

BTW, is that second pic the Border Crossing level ? If so, how did you reach the copter without getting machine gunned by it on your approach ?

Sorry about spelling your nickname wrong ! :rolleyes:

QUOTE: BTW, is that second pic the Border Crossing level ? If so, how did you reach the copter without getting machine gunned by it on your approach ?

The answer is simple: using one of those many trainers there are available on the web... I know it's a blasphemy, but I simply wanted to have one nice fly :) ,you know...

Anyway, this time, I didn't have to "ascend" on top of the chopper in order to make it take off again (as in the Weather Station level), but as I was flying over the borderline (i.e. where those guard towers are located), the chopper began to lean pretty nasty to the left, which unfortunately made me drop out of it - directly onto the minefield :) Too bad, because I would love to know where that chopper lands! As far as I know, it's possible to leave the area on foot without being kicked from the level by Anya - you just have to jump that fence, and then make a big roundabout to the left (somewhere where your own chopper is located) in order to avoid the minefields (all this of course before using that transmitter). Btw, as the chopper was flying over the minefield (i.e. when it passed over that red line), the mines were exploding as well - despite me and the chopper being at least 50 m above it...

Trainers ? I duuno what that is/they are ?

Some kind of cheat ?

Also, i think i'm gonna have to spell your nickname correctly as i cant figure No.5 out ! I've just been playing it for 30mins, and i cant see where that pic could have come from on that level ... :(

Ha ha, you can't be serious! :) Never used any trainer for a game? You must be kidding... Anyway, some of them may work OK, some not, but as you can see, mine works OK :)

It's a simple, small-sized file (usually an .exe one), which you must run before playing the game. Kind of small "utility" program (now that's a term :) ), which enables you to be invulnerable or to have endless ammo during the game, etc. etc.

OK, I still won't reveal you the exact location of that 5th pic, but anyway, try searching in the actual weather station complex (i.e. where the weather station is situated). Can't believe you haven't found it yet! Good luck :)

Never used a trainer !

Could you point me to a link for downloading one perhaps ... ? :)

As for TWS location - you mean the three buildings on the outcrop ? ...OK, i'll have another go !

Here's another pic - this time from the Mission Control level. What a nice overflight! I simply love throwing those grenades on enemy's heads :) Btw, try to figure out how to make that chopper fly with you :) Don't worry, you don't need to use any trainer for this particular level!

Still searching for that "mysterious" place in the Weather Station level? I can't believe you haven't found it yet!

P.S. Please sent me a private message with your email address, so I can send you that trainer I'm using, OK? You know, I would be glad to give you an exact link from the web, but I just couldn't find it (though I know it's certainly there). Don't worry, it's a very small file (roughly 75 kilobytes)...

Oh i know how to make the chopper fly - it involves shooting a guard near the camera near the first gate with the sniper rifle, when you are inside the copter - the guards body activates the alarm and the copter lifts off ... its the outer alarm only that activates the chooper ... i've tried jumping out and trying to land on one of the satellite dishes as it passes over but its really hard ... also, you cant jump off anywhere safely once your airborne !

There you go! I knew that such a hardcore IGI player like you won't have any problems to find a way how to make that chopper fly... Now if only you knew that "mysterious" location in the Weather Station level :) Still haven't found it?

It's a bit strange that the enemy chopper in the Mission Control level doesn't "react" on other cameras (i.e. when they notice you)... Actually, it's stranger that it doesn't fire after you (the same for that wandering APC)... I know it's hard to jump on those objects - unless you aren't using the trainer, of course. Anyway, I will send you the file ASAP, so be ready :)

Btw, I've also tried to have a fly in the Island Assault level, but the enemy Black Hawk simply won't take off unless you're out of it... I've tried to "ascend" on top of it (as in the Weather Station level), but it was impossible, since you can only crouch when inside... If you ascend the hill above the nearby sniper (the one who you encounter in the very beginning), you can actually see where it stops, but anyway, I'll have another go soon!

Btw, when you kill the enemy inside the chopper, its corpse can sometimes be driven away (or pushed) with the chopper - quite funny to watch. I must say it's a bit of weird that there aren't any pilots inside (the same as in the Mission Control level), but the doors on the chopper close...

P.S. Please remind me if that trainer I've sent you arrived safely, OK?

NO ! :(

I think you'll have to tell me ... my only thought was it might be inside that generator next to the first building but it seems solid ....

I just cant find a match - i mean the light in the pic is a strip light and i cant see any others on the level at all !

I DONE IT I DONE IT !

HAH !

That was really clever - I looked on the map and suddenly realised there was something on the map of a similar colour - you know i never realised they actually opened - the door icon only flashes very briefly ...

Dont ask me which one of the four it is ! :p

I salute a true David jones ! :cool:

QUOTE: Dont ask me which one of the four it is ! :p

Ha ha, I'm afraid I wouldn't remember that as well :)

Btw, did you download that trainer successfully? I hope it worked for you :rolleyes:

Or this! (see below -- notice position of green arrow!) What fun... So many times I've followed that helicopter with binocs wanting to see it park itself on the horizon... funny to be able to ride it for a bit until Mr. Serious ends the fun... Too bad there's no way to disable THAT part of IGI 2... - brain_matter_slop

QUOTE: Too bad there's no way to disable THAT part of IGI 2...

Agree with you... By doing this, the authors only made the game that much more linear :mad:

I might do a screen shot quiz for IGI1 - been playing it again recently. :D

Can't even remember when I was playing this game for the last time :) Btw, welcome back :) Where have you been for such a long time? As you can see, we've had some very interesting discussions with jainapurvab (who recently joined us)...

QUOTE: Btw, welcome back :) Where have you been for such a long time?

Well, i been busy at work, recently changed computers and have been playing a few other games just recently (Deus Ex in particular) ... for some reason i been playing IGI 1 again. Also, as its lighter days now, so i'm out more and not on my PC so much .. :)
