Side Entrance to Gasogem Refinery

I have played through LBA2 about 3 times and um I only just discovered that you get into the gasogem refinery by jumping up onto those pipes. Only just today! The way I have done it every time, and the way I thought it had to be done, is to go around the right side and do careful jumps to reach the gap between the fence and the dirt. It takes a few tries to jump properly, but it works.

I feel like such an idiot.

Er... to jump on the pipe and then the dented bit of fence, of course. That's the only way I've ever done it or known how to do it. Do you do it his way?

I meant that I always jump on the pipe. I asked what way Supermot does it.

Oh.. I didn't understand his post, and didn't bother to look at the screenies properly .

Well, I don't know why so many people had a problem with entering the refinery, I discovered it almost immediately...

Holy shit...that took me forever to get past, I didn't realize you could jump on the pipe. Probably why it took me forever to beat LBA 2. Then again, I also got stuck on the gas platform, I didn't realize I could use discreet mode to shoot the ball over the wall and hit the switches.

Ah, early teenage years...those were the days.

I always use the pipe also, but didn't know that we could make that passage at right.

Sounds really really familiar

btw, I tried a lot to get on the other side of the fence. Even flying around the whole island (which isn't possible). If I remember well I got stuck just a few meters apart from the esmer's platform (behind the fence).
Every time I tried to do the same as Supermot showed here, I ended up in a slide to the water

Hm, 9 or 10 i think, and it was the first time I used a computer or played any video game, but over one year playing all the time is quite a lot !!
It was such a great moment to finnish it for the 1st time...

I think my most major point of stuckness in LBA2 was finding the Balsam. If I'd known you could zoom in on the holomap it would have saved a lot of time...

You shouldn't be, it took me three years (late 1997 - 2000) And that was because of the refinery... after that it wasn't that hard to complete
