Problem with new LBA2 from GOG.com

So I am at the part in which you are in the alien base in the Temple of Bu and you have to board a ship, but the game will not let me kill the Franc at the end of the electrified bridge for some reason. So, what do i do?

Green. Over in the other thread, you mentioned I got too far. I speculate that that is my problem =(

It's been too long since I played (I play it now, but I'm not up to this part yet), so I can't even remember what gives you the red ball...
But indeed it sounds like your level of magic is not high enough.


edit: actually, I think I remember now. It's the lightning spell if I'm not mistaken. If you don't have it yet, you can't defeat those francos.

The lightning spell is not enough. You have to free Sendell's Ball before boarding the spaceship in the Esmer Base.

Correct red magic is required.

You can tell what level of magic is required to defeat an enemy by the colour of their uniform, normally their helmet or a band of colour in the middle.
The Franco you refer to, wears a large red helmet and a red laser weapon.

Common sense helps too XD.Through it is less obvious than in the first game.

Would not be "accurate "...
You can skip the red fanco at the esmer base if you jsb over the railing with the first key, and use that on the token chest, even if you still have green level. Warned though this screws up the game order, lol. I wouldn't recommend doing this if you just want to play.

Words come in all sizes. But even if they fit you,
they might not come at appropriate times.

Good for everyone is finding yourself first,
and then the good in others second.

You all have poor memories, I don't have any. That's odd because LBA1 is mostly fresh in my memory and LBA2 don't. This really means I need to play LBA2.

Mi-sa know also lot of things for LBA2. Ten years ago I was the one who finished the game dosens of times between my little lba fanclub. That's awful long ago, and it seems to be child's play what I had done in those days. All those runs, the efford, the fun. Especially considering I finished the game in so many different ways.

I finished both games dozens of times, but it's been a long time since I played them (not including the current run). A few years ago I could probably write a complete walkthrough without even looking (and actually did: 1 2).

Don't you have to kill that one with the bridge? You turn it off, and when he's on the bridge you turn it on again.

Nop, that's the one who comes running to you after you get the token, but he means the one in front of the token before you get it. The one who normally gives you the key to open the chest
Which has a red helmet too, and thus requires red magic level. I've actually never met him before I got red magic level, during normal play runs. But I guess you could have get there without bugs before you receive Baldino's distress call.

Actually, right in the entrance to the temple (after the two dogs), there is a red franco which is a little hard to get through without killing. I guess you are not supposed to get past him at all before reaching the red level of magic (although it is possible).

Actually, it's very easy to get past him. I've seen a speedrun sometime ago, and the only thing you need to do is lure him away from the bridge, and then run in a wide circle around him to the bridge, and he'll be behind you. After I saw the speedrun, I've managed this multiple times myself too.
