BTW, has anybody got a video of getting ready for the Gant Bridge jump, I've only seen vids with the actual jump. I'm kind of looking for the easiest way to get up there.

You'll have to go up the scaffolding. Never looked for another way though.

Oh darn. I was afraid of that. See my first attempt to get up there was rather long and embarrassing, then I ended up dead after the jump. I did get the bonus, but died right after since I hit the bridge column. So I didn't save. Is there an angle I can try to take that won't hit the column?

You can also wheelie a bike over the railing from the bridge above, - high risk of ending up in the water though.

Ah so, this is what I hoped to hear. Thanks GTA Phreak. But I also had hoped there would be a sweet spot that would be easy but I missed that when I went looking up there. It's so close and tempting. But with my modest skills I'd probably end up in the drink. *sigh*

After you've managed it once I recommend finding a more interesting jump to play with. The Gant Bridge sucks. It's been cut from the chain game. Also, if the barriers to LV are up it can't be completed. I think I'll pull it from the challenge.

I just had an idea, and it worked:

It's fairly trivial to bunnyhop over the rail, - use bunny assisted take-off for the jump.

There's a convenient BMX spawn nearby.

Haa, very interesting idea! I'll try that, if nothing else then it will be just fun even if I fail biggrin.gif

Yeah, I just want to do it once in my master save.
Seeing it in your challenge list made me come up with these questions. But it would be good to see it gone or be totally optional.

At one point I tried to get a vortex to fall over the rail, drop through the start zone, and then float to the landing zone. I was hoping it might work with the barriers up, but no luck. Couldn't get it to fall correctly.

Gant Bridge jump on a bicycle - cool idea, Phreak smile.gif

Apart from that I'm with OrionSR - the Gant Bridge jump sucks. Good idea to cut it from the challenge...

Woo-hoo, 14 jumps - excellent achievement. icon14.gif biggrin.gif And a fine video too, some insane jumping there lol.gif .

Well-deserved Platinum Medal, Kusak, congrats!
(added to the front page.)

Note:
The jump at Foster Mall (no. 13 in video) is one of the Chain Game's additions and not in the original game. It's also not in the published save for the rally, but Kusak is testing the new save which loads on Katie's porch (rather than at Doherty) and has the engineless NRG in her mission sphere. The new save will also have this one extra jump, so the new max. no. of jumps will be 15 then. Platinum standard will remain at 14 though, that should be obsessive enough.
