I believe I'm Stuck (Year 3 Spoilers)

I've gotten to the point of the game where you must lower the chain onto the conveyor belt and help pull Glottis up. Unfortunately, I switched the way the conveyor belt moved while the chain wasn't on the belt.

Now I can get to Glottis, but whenever I try to get back to the lever Manny goes "Uh-oh" and drifts back to where he climbs hand over hand on the railing.

Is there anything I can do?

It probably happens too fast for you to react, right? Unless you can turn Manny leftwards and hit the 'use' key really fast, there's not a lot you can do other than load a previous saved game. The faster your computer, the faster the belt moves.

(Residual doesn't have these speed issues, but it's far from ready for prime time.)

I don't think you're misunderstanding the command because there's not much room in the description for misunderstanding. But I'm not sure whether it'll get you unstuck. It moves Manny to the default position in the room so it should, if the default position is actually not on the belt.

As for how to use it, if dev mode is enabled you simply press the Home key on your keyboard. The easiest way to have dev mode enabled is to have installed the game using the Quick & Easy installer.

I'm having the SAME problem! In fact, other people were too, I don't know if they ever fixed it. It's only when the chain is dropped onto the conveyor belt. I remember reading about this problem before I even played the game. I tried quitting and reloading the current file, doesn't work. But I do have another file that's not far behind my current one.

I watched two walkthroughs where they player had Manny get off with ease. But one guy had some trouble just like me, but it only lasted a minute.

What to do?

Nevermind. Had the belt in the wrong direction. The chain must go down along the belt.
