Okay, I have searched through the topics and tried what was suggested. It is not working. I've gotten past the riding scene w/ the smoke chasing me. And I got through the carriage scene. I ran up the stairs and unlocked the door. Now inside the tower, as soon as it gives me a chance to click, I click the feet on the stairs. He takes one step, and the smoke comes in and chokes me. That's it. Over and over and over. I have no chance to even make it to the stairs. I tried replaying the entire riding scene again and clicking as few times as possible. It still does the exact same thing as soon as I get inside the tower. I am so frustrated! Why won't it give me a chance to get to the stairs before killing me over and over? I understand a challenge, but this is impossible, and I can't see where anyone else has addressed this problem. Is it a glitch?
I've heard people talk about the torch. I've tried the hand on the torch, the hand on the stairs, I can't think of anything else to do. I can't even GET to the stairs. It's driving me nuts. Please help. I hope I can get past it so I can see the rest of this chapter. Without a skip option, I don't see how I can.
