When I make the run from throwing the switch, swimming, to center, etc. even if I don't have a slowdown for any reason and ignore the flames, when I get to column that has the cutout it is gone and the Griffin is nowhere in sight.
I don't know what the guy above is talking about "turning off the flames".
I've read your walkthrough and watched the video, if you make the jumps, what keeps the Griffin available???
I see, maybe Fussel was talking about another place.
