This game...oh my god this game.
Seriously all I can say is use this link:http://strategywiki.org/wiki/Knight_Lore
This map will perfectly show where the four corners of the map are.
Also, it appears that you WILL spawn in one of the locations shown, but it also seems like you will spawn there consistently, so don't keep trying to reset to match up with the video guide. The video serves merely as a reference for specific room help.
Here is a tip I used if you are stuck in any room;
If a jump seems too high, or too far, if you have an item in your inventory. You can place that item below you, then jump and very very quickly pick up your item again so you don't lose the item. It's not extremely hard to pull off, but if you mess up just hold the L button to rewind!!!
Oh, and don't forget to go to the options menu and turn off the time limit and turn on infinite lives!!!
This video helps too;Dr Scrufflton says:
"That link says the starting points are random, but I can never get it to match up with the one in the video. The one in rare replay always starts at the same location, and its not the same as the one shown"In response from myself:
"That's strange because, like you said, I as well start in the same place every time, but my girlfriend has been starting in a different place from me, yet has been starting in that same place consistently...perhaps spawn is locked per account. Also, the guide in the link is for the original version of the game. I have noticed that a lot these old games have had very slight changes to them. For example Atic Atac has changed the location of the red and green keys, from the original copies of the game. The guide should still serve as a decent hand holder through the game. It helped me immensely.
Also, about the video, I mostly used that as a way to see how specific rooms are done. If I couldn't figure out a room I'd scan the video until I found the specific room I was working on.
Lastly, like I said, use the video guide as 'per room' help. I would strongly, strongly advise using the map in the link as your main guide."
