Iím plaing Tomb Raider The Angel of Darkness and Iím in level ďThe Hall Of SeasonsĒ in the situation when in Hotebook adds those words
ďULTRA VIGILIS UMBRAM, ECCE VERITAS
Through the spirit of the keeper behold the truthĒ
Iím very crazy player Tomb Raider and I canít get over this level for one month and please help me who know how to get over this level.
The keeper is "Brother Obscura" or the "Red Ghost."
Do a search on those names. There are 9 threads with Brother Obscura in the title and 20 threads with Red Ghost in the title.
Your question has already been answered many times.
With Search, there is no wait for a reply.

The way I did it, was after the cutscene, crouch immediately and crawl out to the side of the room. You can crawl around the room picking up the shotgun and shells at this point.
Find out what statue has the blue light on it. Crawl around the outside of the room until you are near that statue. Save the game. Crawl a little closer, and see if the light is still there. If so, save the game. If not, reload. Repeat until you are as close as possible to the statue without the light moving to another.
Now, quickly, when the ghost moves away, stand and recrouch, and draw your shotgun. Stay facing the statue at all times. Do not turn around to shoot at the ghost when it is behind you; you need to be able to see the statue. Now, when the ghost is in front of you, shoot it. When the ghost pauses, stand up, put away the shotgun, and RUN to the statue and hit the action key. If you have timed the pause correctly, you will be able to grab the painting.
Once you have, crouch immediately again, and double check your inventory to be SURE it is there. If it is, save the game again, and crawl out of the room and down the stairs.
Or, if you want Stella's walkthrough version:
RED GHOST/BROTHER OBSCURA: The goal is to grab the First Obscura Painting from the hands of the statue that's holding it, but the ghostly guardian is not going to give up his treasure easily. If he so much as touches Lara, her health drains away. To further complicate the process, the painting moves randomly from statue to statue. (It glows blue so you can tell where it is.) Also, you can't take the painting unless the ghost is stunned. If you try, the painting will just move to another statue. So you'll need to shoot at the ghost until it stops moving, which only lasts for a few seconds. During that brief window you must run to the blue light and grab the painting.
I found this section extremely frustrating even using the tips provided by players who had beaten it. It took me quite a while to do it, but here's what finally worked for me:
The ghost can't harm Lara (much) while she's crouching, so immediately duck and start crawling around for the pick-ups. You'll find a large medipak, 2 boxes of V-Packer shells and the V-PACKER SHOTGUN (if you don't already have it) along one edge of the room and 2 more boxes of shells on the other side.
Now figure out which of the standing statues has the blue light. Crawl toward it but don't get too close or the painting will move to a different statue. Once you're in position, save your game. When the ghost moves away, stand up, draw the shotgun and crouch down again.
Shoot at the ghost when it swoops toward you. Don't bother to turn around, just wait for it to come back for another pass, and then shoot some more. Eventually it will be stunned. If you get lucky, it will stop behind Lara. It only pauses for a few seconds, so quickly holster your gun (otherwise Lara can't run straight) and run toward the statue. As soon as you see the Hand icon, press Action to grab the painting. Then crouch again.
EXITING THE RUINS: Crawl or run to the exit. Run downstairs to the now-flooded hallway.
thanhkim, you can do it!
