That player isn't working for me. Here's a walkthrough of that area. It's around the 0:50 second mark, early in the video. Had to find a playthrough that didn't have copious swearing.
*SPOILERS DON'T CLICK IF YOU HAVE YET TO FINISH*
The link to the walkthrough video with the involontary "jump" is here (17min 28sec into video):
I have not tested since I posted so I guess it will solve it to try some more
In the walkthrough he does go off to the left but still, do not get how I could fall into the water 40 times there
OMG how embarrassing, all needed to do was walk over the edge of the thing while holding X, and then Joel jumps and makes it. Talk about detting stuck for nothing. Thanks for the help anyways, it did solve my big issue. Lol.
Going for the end now - which will be great, and sad. I prey they make a "Last of Us" every three months from now I could play this game for a year and not get bored with it.
