How to Solve the Shadow Puzzle in Uncharted: The Lost Legacy Chapter 5

In this section we'll tell you how to solve the Shadow Puzzle in Uncharted: The Lost Legacy Chapter 5. One the the trickiest puzzles in Uncharted: The Lost Legacy comes in Chapter 5 and sees you having to create shadows on two walls that match the paintings.

Pressing a switch/lever will cause the column directly in front of it to tip, pushing all the pieces to the rear side. Placing the pieces in the right positions is tricky, but the end solution can be seen in the picture below.

Stand in front of the puzzle so you have to look over it at the gap between the two paintings. You should be at a point where there are no levers and the whole puzzle is in front of you. Now, starting with the lower left lever (the one directly to your left), number the levers 1-12 going clockwise. Now pull the levers in this order:

9, 12, 2, 9, 4, 6, 1, 10

If you mess up and this doesn't work, restart at the last checkpoint and try again.
