Sky Island / Sky Ark

Post by r15i23d05d14y » Sun Nov 05, 2017 3:52 am

Is there a reference somewhere on how the final level is meant to be completed? There seems to be a branch point of either running up a rope or a difficult wall jump hidden behind a waterfall.

Not gonna lie, I can't do either and I'm frustrated enough that I'm going to be one of the people who never finish the game.

Here is a video of me doing that part: https://youtu.be/w3qfYOvuQ3w

Hopefully this helps. It's been changed a bit recently to make it easier, and more apparent where you're supposed to go. So it might look a bit different for you, but the path is the same. The hard part about that wall run/jump is that you need to jump off the wall when you're as high up on the wall as possible, otherwise some height is lost.

The changes will be released in some future update.

Aha, thanks for that. It turns out I have a graphics bug that is causing the scratch marks on the wall not to render. They make a huge difference in being able to finish that level.

Hm, that seems odd, would you like to check if they appear if you change your graphics preset? Also, what graphics card do you use?

Turns out my biggest problem had textures at 1/8x quality and that caused the hints not to render. Radeon HD 7770 w/ linux open source drivers. My mistake, back up to 1x now and everything is good in the world :)
