Forums  /  Ratchet: Deadlocked  /  Desperately trying to do fail jump & speedrunning on PS2

Hi I've looked through all the fail cancel tutorials but I can't do this jump on the ice planet. I do the whole L2, L2, (L2 R1), triangle, X, X, Square. I'm not sure if I'm starting to soon or if I'm pressing the buttons to slow. Don't know if youtube links are allowed.

Another question I have is how much time you lose playing deadlocked on PS2 with all the loading screens

I assume, since you're swedish, you have the PAL version of the game, where the chargeboots go at 5/6ths of the intended speed. Try the method used in this video

I'm sorry if I wasted your time because I wasn't specific enough. But does this work without the ninja skin, I've heard it boosts your speed. I am training with a friend on dou any% and we got stuck at this part so I tried it by myself. Thanks for the fast reply. 🙂

The reason it's not working is probably a combination of the bad skin and the version.

I know for a fact that the flail cancel is possible on NTSC PS3 even without ninja ratchet. Pretty sure the only reason you're not making it is because the bridge is up and you're using the wrench super early because you don't want to land on the bridge before using it. The wrench can almost work as a ledge grab where if you're slightly beneath a ledge it can get some additional height by timing it correctly. So I would take the bridge down right away and try working on the timing of your wrench. I was able to do this with the bridge up though so it might just be way more precise on PAL PS2, if that doesn't work it might just not be possible on PAL PS2.

Also can you get the first one but not the second one or is both of them a problem?

I managed to do Sneeps skip now (barely), later in the video is me trying my dearest doing the regular way but I'm not even close.

I'm just wondering now if it's worth getting the ps3 version of the game but I have heard that the fps and speed of the game can get really bad in co-op mode. Have they updated it or do just to hope for the best?

The PS3 version is overall better, the lag is barely is problem since there's a way to reduce it. The loads also save around 6minutes (this is made on the assumption silence's run is decent and is played on ps2)

Okay thanks for all the help. Just one last thing 🙂 you mention that it's an easy fix with the lag, is there somewhere you can look it up how to solve it? If I would bump into that problem.

The lag is caused by too many assets on screen, you'll notice the PS3 runs of this game spend a lot of time looking down, and this isn't a hindrance because of the mini map and the magma cannon's shot spread

That's crazy, maybe we will stick with the ps2 for now xD
