I am on the second part of the Vjun mission (Vader's Castle), and just did the water pump puzzle. Katarn drops the pipe and jumps up into the hole. Then he just stands there. I have tried skipping the cinematic, but nothing happens. When I press ENTER again, I'm still in the cinematic and there's Katarn, standing and doing nothing. I read on another forum that this can happen if you save during the puzzle, and that it can be fixed by playing from the last checkpoint. I've done that, and it doesn't work. I've even tried playing from the first checkpoint, but it always ends up with me staring up at Katarn with his thumb up his a**. If anyone knows of this problem and the fix to go along with it, please let me know. Thanks, Lane

I've never had that happen. I've had random cutscenes have problems in them, like on Taspir I've had Jaden not exit during the darkside taspir1 cutscene, but nothing that seriously caused problems to the game. You said you tried to skip. Did you get through the cutscene and it froze, or Kyle wouldn't move? I'm unsure of what exactly happened when you tried to skip. And you pressed the right button to skip, right? Gotta check allt he basics... hehe. If all else fails, reinstall. Have you tried that? Also, if you *really* can't get past it you can always skip ahead to the next level. "map vjun3" in the console, if in dire need. There's not much left to that level after the water pump thing.

Kyle may or may not jump around, and often taunts some unseen opponent, but generally just stands up in the opening; not frozen, just not doing anything. I try to hit 'enter' and I get the 'skipping cinematic' message, but the game never loads past that point. Also, I've tried quicksaving during the cutscene and I get the message 'can't save game while dead!', though I've tried going into the cutscene several different ways, and there's no reason I can see that I would actually be dead.

I've tried doing this, as well, but for some reason I've lost all my force powers when I start the level this way. I'm willing to skip whatever is left of vjun 2, but I would prefer not to screw up my other settings by jumping maps. Anyone know why this would be happening? Lane
Surely, someone must have some suggestion about how to get past this point, and with all my force powers and items in tact? No one else has heard of this problem before?
