Avoiding Enemies forever:
Submitted by: d.shankar
As you proceed your quest you may encounter many creatures.
(Don't Consider Spectral Realm).Therefore,It is better to always be equipped
with any weapon(eg:torch,spear,etc).when you kill any creature with a weapon
you see a green soul of that creature wandering don't attempt to devour(eat)
it.because if you devour it,the soul of the creature gets destroyed and after
sometime he'll come back so this will be a problem. To avoid that , Hit him
nicely with the weapon and when he is unconscious press the Ignite or Pierce
key`F' and leave him there and don't devour the soul. In doing so he will
never come back until you load a new game.

Submitted by: d.shankar narayana
When you have defeated malchiel your next mission is to fight Zephon.
Before Attacking zephon you will encounter many spiders (their attacks
are ridiculous) inorder to avoid them follow this technique.when the
spiders are after you just jump on a wall by seeing you the spider too
attempt to climb the wall as a result he gets stucked.He cannot escape
and remains there till you load a new game.

There are a number of "command line" parameters that
the game will accept, but unfortunately not on the
actual command line nor by trying to use the file
KAIN2.ARG, which has the default parameters used by
the game. They are actually read from an area inside
the KAIN2.EXE file. There are only 39 bytes that can
be used. Be sure to backup KAIN2.EXE before editing
this file. To find the place with a hex editor, search
for some part or all of the following string:
under 1 -mainmenu -voice -inspectral
The first parameter should be a level name. This level will
be loaded if the "Start A New Game" option is chosen on the
Main Menu. See below for level names.
The remaining bytes can be used for parameters. If the -mainmenu
parameter is not there, when the game is started, the first
parameter level will automatically be loaded. The -inspectral
parameter means Raziel will start a new game in the spectral
world. It is not known exactly what the -voice parameter does
as there are still voices in the game if it is not there.
The following string will open all portals. Also, when a new
game is selected, it will start after the long beginning cut-scene
and very close to the first portal. These cheats will not however
allow access to all areas of the game because they do not grant
any of the additional abilities or weapons needed to continue nor
will they solve any of the puzzles which open locked doors.

Level Names (not in order)
Note: Sometimes other numbers after the level name will also work.
Examples: train 2; cathy 25.
Do not attack humans:
You will encounter your first human in Malchia's domain.
He is a vampire hunter garbed in silver armor, shoots
silver stakes from a bow, and will be hostile. Leave
him alone and continue on to fight the zombie-like vampire.
Leave after killing it, and do not go back to the human.
The next human you encounter, located in the gear room,
should fall to his knees and hold out his arms. The humans
now consider you an avenging angel. Do not attack them, or
they will turn on you. Warning: Vampire Worshippers are
garbed in red and gold. They wield throwing knives and
staffs and will always attack. You may kill them as they
are evil. Be sure to check your human targets. You will
now be able to peacefully roam through the human stronghold.
To defeat the Malchia, lure him under one of the two spike
gates and release them right when he is slithering under it.
Repeat this on the other side of the room. After that, lure
him into the center cage, quickly jump out, run to where
Malchia started from, and roll the lever. This will cause
the large spikes on the ceiling to come grinding down on
top of him.
Pull the three stakes out of him to bring him back to life.
Lure him into the furnace room very slowly -- if you move
too fast, he will return to his room and you will have to
begin again. Turn on the gas and hit the switch after he is
in the furnace room to fry him.
Bring a torch with you to the fight with Zephon. Run up to
his belly, and swipe the torch at the hole for a bit of damage.
He will attack with his leg, and get it stuck in his belly.
Strike the leg. He will be heavily damaged. Strike the egg
hole to cause more damage. Any time he gets a leg stuck in
the ground, hit it with the torch, then hit his egg sack to
quickly kill him. This is easier than the "correct" method.
After defeating him, you will gain the ability to scale walls.
You must enter the chamber in the spectral realm. Go to the
top pillar where the portal is located and materialize.
After a brief exchange of words, your only task is to shoot
out the windows lining the room to let in the sunlight.
Use the force blast-- you do not need Soul Reaver, so do
not worry about taking hits. After he dies, you will acquire
the swimming ability.
Defeating Kain (first time):
Simply wait for him to materialize and hit him. He will
appear behind you 90% of the time. You will acquire Soul
Reaver after he is defeated.
Defeating Kain (final time):
Wait for him to materialize and hit him. You need soul
reaver to do damage. The spirit forge in the center of
the arena always automatically fills your health. Simply
run over to it to accomplish this. When you strike him the
first time, he appears on the second tier, again usually
behind you. Finally, when you hit him on the second tier,
he will materialize on the third and highest tier, again
usually behind you. Quickly hit him a third time to defeat
Use of the Constrict ability:
First, you must have a circular area around the target.
For example: Assume that the target is a Dumahim vampire
(the most common in Nosgoth). Now, without using autoface,
run a complete circle around the vampire until Raziel is
followed by a trace of blue energy. This energy, once
fully invoked, will "constrict" the vampire, causing it
to be momentarily stunned -- and allowing ample time for
you to finish the it off. The Constrict ability has odd
effects on humans. They are as follows:
1. Certain humans, once you begin the Constrict ability,
will act as though they plummeted into water. If you
do not finish the ability, they will "drown".
2. The human will get stunned when Constrict is half
finished, allowing you to stop and feed on their soul.
3. The most common and normal result is that the human
will instantaneously die.
The Constrict ability is required to complete the puzzle
in the Chrono-chamber. Also, make sure to return to areas
of Nosgoth you have already visited prior to gaining that
ability. You will find that Constrict can be used on many
things, and may open up useful secrets (such as Eldritch
artifacts, Glyphs, and life force pieces). Constrict does
not work on Kain and will not work underwater.
