Ok, this is silly, but I'm having trouble figuring out how to jump while hanging from an outstretched pole (not a ledge).

I figured out pulling back on the left stick turns you around (that's like prince of persia, right?). Well to jump forward it seems you have to hold RT and press foward on the left stick while hitting A (jump) once to get yourself moving and then again when your body is swinging all the way forward? Only then will you swing back and forth and can finally jump off.

I can't always get this to reliably work though, so I'm not sure if I'm timing the jump button right to get swinging.

Basically if this ever happens during an escape I'll be screwed. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Any pointers?

uhm.. if your stuck on a pole then just hold 'A'..
you'll start swinging

same thing if you want to keep free-running on the poles... just hold high profile and a

Doh! Since I was trying to time my jump I probably didn't try that!

The free running on the poles made perfect sense but somehow once I was stoppped hanging I thought... okay I'm just an idiot. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

its best to do it all in one fluid motion like say you jump off a beam grab a pole and imedielty swing to a nothe pole or beam
