Here are 2 bugs that happened to me while trying to get a two time date on a starter save in restricted territory

Firstly, as i took he girl home, i stopped in he pink marker just as a cop threw me out. There was a cutscene with Michelle and i got busted at the same time. When i spawned at the police station, it was still in cutscene mode. THere was no HUD ( no money, weapon icon etc etc) and when i aimed no crosshair

I couldnt even press start and pause. It didnt go away till i turned off my PS3

The second is similar. I did trigger a two time date but it was just as my car caught fire. The cutscene came where the girl first sees you and pulls the fingers, but as this scene was triggered my car blew up and the scene didnt goa way. The camera stayed on her and she just drove around. i could see myself moving on the radar as well, and my health was going down even though i had just been blown up. It then froze.

You have missed the Main Menu Selection for "Cheats & Tricks"
Go to:
If it exists it will be listed there.

I found an easier method:If you havent completed all the missions or races,do one of them.Then,get to a safehouse.Save the game,but dont overwirite the glitched savegame.Save in another save file.After that,load that savegame.You can now workout.
I think this method will work,because it worked on me.
I havent made this up.I have tried it.
Hope this helps.

Flying savegames: Above that motel (that orange [ shaped building) use CRAZY TRAINER +151 and fly as higher as you can. There are LOOOTS of save game diskets flying in the middle of the air! I never belived this thing is possible!

Here are some glitches that have been confirmed by Take2 support to myself (they stated that they are working on a solution to the problem).  <SNIP> .

That would only work for a select few, as the Patch is for V1 ONLY-there is NO Patch for V2/V3(the Legal Download version)...Since V2 came out in June 2005, this is the version pretty much everyone has(since V1 was not sold very long-since the PC version came out in 2005, yet V2 came out in June of the same year)..?

Also, HMvartak has a simple fix by just uploading the affected save, selecting the fix needed and re downloading the save. Also, the Save Editor has a option to fix those problems as well. These work for ALL 3 Versions of the game. Just a friendly heads up. smile.gif

Also, Why the Long quote? It was NOT needed. confused.gif

This topic needs are major overhaul or replacement.

Most of the best fixes for confirmed glitches are offered at the sources linked below. These methods offer a way to prevent the basketball glitch from reoccurring by moving the disk in Madd Doggs mansion.

The Gym Glitch Explained

"You have worked out enough for today, come back tomorrow!"

If this message is displayed every time CJ tries to workout, even when he returns the next day, then you've got the Gym Glitch.

The Gym Glitch can be avoided completely if CJ never exceeds the daily workout limit on that save.

When CJ exceeds the daily limit the current in-game month and day is recorded. Usually when CJ returns the next day or later the current month or current day will be greater than the exceeded month or day and he will be allowed to use the gym equipment. However...

There is no in-game year. When enough time has passed the current month will rollover back to 1. So let say that CJ last exceeded the daily limit on the 14th day of May. After the new year he will not be able to workout for the first two weeks of every month until June finally rolls around.

But there's a catch. There is no in-game method to determine the current month and day. The sum of all game days and safehouse visits is hardly even close. The best I can do is suggest to start checking for the glitch sometime after 200 game days, but that depends a lot of how often the game is saved.

The effects of the gym glitch can be mitigated by saving (which advances the calendar by 1 day) or by rolling over the clock past midnight until he can finally workout again. Then intentionally exceed the daily limit. This will set the exceeded date to the current date and CJ can work out normally again, until next year when you'll need to go through this process again.

Or better yet, wait until the last day of the month and start to work out. Wait until the clock rolls over and exceed the limit on the first day of a new month. Then the glitch will only be in effect next year on the first day of the early months. A player can determine the 1st day of the month because on the previous day CJ could work out but now he can't. Work between 2 saves and load the previous save when necessary.

Or even better, wait until new years eve to start working out and exceed the limit on new years day. Then if CJ never exceeds the limit again the glitch will only be noticed on new years day of each year. If the player carefully tracked each and every day for several months it might be possible to determine the current month based on a leap year calendar.

What can you do about the gym glitch?

If the glitch isn't very severe (March 5th) then don't do anything which might make it worse (December 31st).

On PS2, if you have AR-Max or similar cheat device software the glitch can be repaired with cheat device codes.

On backwards compatible PS3s it's possible to export the save to a PC, extract the save data, and use a save editor to examine the current month and day.

PSN users are out of luck. It's easy enough to export the save but it's encrypted, so unless someone figures out a way to decrypt the data there's no way to learn the date or fix anything.

PC players can use the repair tools linked below to reset the exceeded date. These tools will not work properly on PS2 saves because the global variables are different.

Honestly, It's so easy to fix all of this. Renew your save game. No need for the madness.
