Cause: Saving at Madd Dogg's Mansion
Solution:
1. Go to the nearest Safe House and save the game 6 times (thus skipping some days)
2. Go to the nearest Fast Food Restaurant and eat as much as possible
- get CJ quite fat
3. Completely change CJ's appearance - clothes, haircut, and tattoos.

It has been suggest that driving certain vehicles near a basketball court can cause a problem, but in the case of this glitch, that is NOT the problem (I just spent a morning trying loads of different vehicles).

I tried the steps here, I've got CJ So Fat hes fat as hell, changed everything ect still can't see no ball.

@Welshblokeuk: The solution to Saving at Madd Dogs place is allready known. Yor method seems pretty sketchy if you ask me.

Take2Games asking them first.

With the Basketball Fix patch that I downloaded from here, has anyone tried it?

I can't seem to get it to work for some reason.

The Error I get is

"

Reading Memory Failed" Error Code 299

Yes, I tried the memory hack method of fixing the glitch and it worked as advertised. Perhaps reading the directions will help. It's an old hack so maybe it isn't working on new operating systems. I never figured out what that tool is doing. You need to have your save running for it to work, but other than that... who knows. However, I did figure out which variable needs to be changed in order to fix the glitch so perhaps a drag and drop repair utility can be developed. If you have any skill with darkpact scripts or hex editing this is a very easy fix.

I Followed directions correctly in order for it to work.

Walk in mid air:When in a helicopter fly over to the Giant Bridge in San Fierro and try to land in the middle if you get it in the right position the helicopter will land on nothing and you can get out and walk around.
Difficulty: Easy (if you get it in the correct place)

i think that's a barrior to stop you crossing over the bridge before you've unlocked the area on the other side.

if you use the flying car cheat you can land cars up there. it makes for some freaky pics!!!=] colgate.gif

I don't know if this has been posted, but today i was driving around being chased by the fbi and fell of my motorbike, then a FBI Rancher arrived and the FBI guys got out, but they didn't shoot me with MP5's, they shot me with pistols, it's the first time it happens. I got the ps2 version.

The gym glitch happened to me, and none of the suggested methods worked, so I wrote a little program to fix the glitch in the save file. Then I found out I had pretty much wasted my time - a guy called Hammer had already done something similar.

Oh well. Here it is anyway. Maybe someone will find it useful. It's a short Python script.

No problem with gym glitch, just the basketball one. I never knew not to save at Madd Doggs. Wasn't there a problem like this on Vice City? Not to save at Cherry Poppers. I gotta try those glitches.

Read about the "weird multiplayer" glitch, and I can confirm it, kinda. It does mention running the other player over, but it isn't necessary. I'm rambling here, I'll just give you my experience of the glitch;
About 1 and a half years ago, I was playing the multi bit with a mate at his house, and we decided to kiss (IN-GAME, I want to be very clear about that!) and I got into the car during the cutscene and kept X down hard. Keeping it down after the cutscene, the car (the hotrod one, knife-something it's called) flew into the sky until I reached well over the distance limit and blew up.
Right, tale over. Try it out yourself to confirm it, but it is possible. One issue I've come across showing it to mates is that it doesn't always go into the air - it can just fly around in, well, I can't think of a better word - glitchily, only a couple of feet off the ground. Try it out yourself.
Also, I came across a new underwater glitch using this multiplayer glitch. Hard to do, but give it a shot to prove me wrong.
Both of you get in a car, drive into the water, then both of you stand on top, quickly too. Now kiss, and either P1 or 2 (I can never remember who did what in these things, sorry.) press triangle to get in, then rev X . Now, this has only happened once, so it may not work very well, but you should both be underwater, but like the water ain't there, like the sea/riverbed is ground. Very freakin' weird, I assure you.
Enough from me, go test and criticize. cool.gif

Just to report about the Gym glitch. I'm on the PS2. The third Memory Card solution mentioned by the second post worked for me.

Just want to let people I know a few minutes ago under certain circumstances I found a way to relieve that stupid gym glitch!

And this one happens to be EASY as ever!!!!

I don't know if you guys have had these circumstances before though...basically the glitch would occur on the 230th day despite what I did or where I was that day. My latest save was the 229th day, meaning I could use the gym as much as I wanted today, but tomorrow the glitch would start and would not go away despite days passing, etc.

Under these circumstances where you know the glitch will occur but hasn't yet, I have figured out a new method to get rid of it and it's so simple I wanted to slap myself afterwards.

Basically, on the 229th day (meaning I still had the gym) I worked out to the maximum amount of time. I feel like for some reason this canceled out the glitch or did something with the scripting so whatever makes the gym glitch keep occurring was reset so the next day I would be able to use the gym. smile.gif Then by the time the 230th day hit, the glitch was gone! biggrin.gif Easy as pie and did the trick.

So far it's the 232nd day and no glitch yet! Hopefully this lasts, if not I'll let you guys know and keep you updated...

If anyone has felt the pain that me and my good friend Jeff have been through, and you cant fix the gym glitch with simply saving. You could always take the time to ride a bike. Granted it will take a while, but if you constantly ride fast, you will slowly get muscle back while burning fat.

Well, the technique explained by Mz. Hazey, above, will obviously not work for every single person with the glitch.
1. You must have the game saved before it occurs, like hers.
2. I think you have to be on the same day as hers, too (230th day).

So, instead, why not try one of the other techniques explained on the first page and report back to see if it works.

It doesn't have to be the exact same day. I tried it on another save file where it occurred on a different date. The point is if you have a save before you get the glitch you can prevent it by working out to the maximum at the gym the day before in order to not have the glitch occur the next day.

So with that being said Gamecheata is right with number 1. If you don't have a saved file you can go back to, my technique doesn't work and you should try the other options this site offers.

Damn, I'm next to the end of the game (only have to take over territories and the three missions during the riot.) and I have got the gym glitch. It's so annoying because while collecting all oysters I kept on losing muscle and now have about zero left which makes the gyms extremely useful at this moment.

On PC I never ever encountered this glitch, but now the first time on PS2 and I have it already. It's the second glitch by the way, so not even Madd Dogg's and the beach's gyms are available.
