How did Jack get up there with the gray door closed? Did he jump off that fast moving platform?

I think you are stuck.   :P

First time playing this part of the mansion my Jack also got stuck there. You have to start from the last save.  >:(

Yep.. stuck. Sorry about that. I should have added escape platforms here. I'll send a patch to Vern.

Did you report this as a JS? I don't remember seeing that report.

No, Rob, I didn't.  I was very late playing this part and I thought it was only me making things difficult! Sorry!

That's OK ;)

I never would have thought you were just trying to be difficult and wouldn't have been upset.  Oh... I might have grumbled a bit (I was pretty tired towards the end of testing), but I would have been thankful anyway.

I can tell that I thought this might be problem because of the sign I put at the top. Still... I shouldn't have relied on players reading that sign - I don't know what I was thinking. I must have missed this on my last sweep through the mansion.

Fortunately, the fix shouldn't be too bad...

Windrider's Jack has super powers to be able to jump off that platform and not die.
;)

Windrider - I feel bad that you got stuck there, and I hope you made use of the last save point since it really wasn't that far back from where you were.

Unfortunately, the "fix" will not help your situation, since all it really does is take further (lethal) steps to prevent Jack from opening those doors prematurely. I considered using escape platforms, however they are slightly problematic here. Then, I tried extra gray doors which also didn't work as I hoped (no sense going into the gory details).

Instead I settled on zappers in front of each yellow door, that could be deactivated as Jack progressed through the maze in the middle of the room. That ended up being closest to my original intention.

I'll send it to Vern as soon as I finish testing it out. Thanks very much for reporting the issue!

Update: - I sent the updated mansion to Vern last week. As I mentioned in this post, the update will prevent anyone else from getting into your situation.
