For the original setup of how to do this watch Robert de Sable's Early Death.

The gate to Masyaf is closed after you reenter it during the attack in memory block one. When you get far enough away it disappears and is replaced with the original gate. The concept of this is "there is no spoon", and there are other examples of this in the AC games.

While doing this I discovered a few things. First off you can attack Robert off his horse. He is now in a stand up position but still can't be grabbed. Another thing is the assassin hostage the templars killed is still alive (can't believe I never noticed him during my first recording). But back on to Al Mualim. After you make the gate disappear go inside Masyaf. Al Mualim still stands where he was for the previous scene. Move him by gentle pushing or running/jumping at him. Notice how falling doesn't kill him. I have a little fun with placing the two targets together. You are unable to assassinate Al Mualim with the hidden blade, and he doesn't take any damage from weapons which means the only way to kill him is with throwing him into water. Then I kill Robert and continue on with the game to see if anything has changed. During this I discovered the assassin hostage reacted to Altair assassinating Robert, and when I lock onto him it gives combat options on the HUD. Also the two assassins in the leap of faith area are suspicious of Altair. In the next scene Robert is still dead with no one riding his horse. I also included something else in this video. If you move Robert he will fall through the ground at a certain point. Then Altair's health drops to zero and he desynchronizes. If your wondering why it's because when you kill targets by throwing them into water it says "target escaped" on the screen.

The game developers didn't want you to be able to kill targets with water since you had to be right where the target was when he died (in AC1 at least). It's interesting to know that this mechanic is part of a target's programming instead of being a part of the assassination missions.

HOW THE FLYING F---
YOU DID NOT, I REPEAT NOT FIND AN EXPLOIT TO KILL AL MUALIM.

Brb, watching the vid. xD

Excellent job, great thinking!
Crap, and to think that I was messing around with gentle pushing just a few days ago. When watching the area exploit vid, something should have clicked, but it didn't. Tongue Something clicked with you, though. Excellent work!

Agreed. This video is an instant classic: assassinating both Robert de Sable and Al Mualim in Memory Block 1! The "photo op" of the two standing side by side should be your new user pic, Aurel.

We have a great life here in Hawaii, and we're never going back to America again!

It almost looks like your saying "Frontpage No". Tongue And thanks for the comments, guys. I really like the "nothing out of your grasp" comment because Altair did have to use the grasp ability for the exploit. Empty hand button

Strange you should mention it because I considered my last pic to be my greatest achievement so far, but this is just as great in ever possible way. AL Mualim and Robert look very distinguished, and it wasn't till now that I noticed the horse.
