I have finally figured how to pass the stupid 'life's a beach' stage with OC. i found the trick is to press them early before they even go in the circle, and to also hold the key down for each move for a bit instead of just tapping the keys. that way the keys will hopefully be recognised... in short.. do it early and hold the key down until you see a dark white circle - the light white circle is 10points, the dark is 50.

also i have put the location of where the dance club is in los santos.. it is in idlewood, near or prob. in new mexico. .heres a screenshot.. enjoys - it is a few blocks to the left of teh BS place (not shown).. i only passed it with the skin of my teeth.. i passed by 20 points lol... i didnt know how t paste a picture here but i have linked to it.. that will do.

los santos club location

I found the 'Beach Party' mission the easiest of the DDR-style minigames so far; maybe not so system intensive? I found pressing slightly early and holding the key a bit helps. Also listening to the music and getting into the beat...

Nope, there's no such cheat.

As I mentioned in the PM I sent you, the mission becomes a problem is you're facing lag. Try lowering your settings and if nothing helps, you can always request a SnP and get the mission done.

I've had a similar issue. You might have to wait a second or two. There seems to be a delay in the responses.

Raptomex, youre responding to a comment that was made almost 4 years ago (June 20, 2005) I guessing that the person who made that comment has already figured that out or has long since given up. smile.gif

Given your configuration:
QUOTE (from PM)
Intel[R] Pentium[R] 4 CPU 2.00GHz 512 MB RAM
40 GB Hard Disk
Intel[R] 82845G/GL Chip 64 MB.

...I'd say at the lowest possible setting. Turn off Anti-Aliasing and reduce draw distance to zero. Resolution not more than 1024x768, preferably 800x600. Also, try turning on/off the Frame Limiter and see if it makes any difference.

You'll just have to keep on trying, I guess. But it's going to be difficult because of the lag. You'll have to take a wild guess for every arrow and press the corresponding arrow key slightly before it reaches the circle. That way, taking into consideration the lag, the key press might get registered when the arrow reaches the circle. Of course, this might take a lot of tries. So, I guess you'll just be better off requesting a SnP for it.

The gta_sa.set file? That's not going to work because every setting file is unique depending on the system which it has been created on and it works only for that system. For you, my settings file will crash your game. So, unless you find someone with the exact same configuration as you, getting someone else's settings file is not a good idea.

Why not just request another SnP?

If you have completed it, then the CV icon will disappear, won't it? There are no more Cesar Vialpando missions until you unlock Badlands, which is after finishing all Los Santos missions.

I'm not sure if there's any such cheat, but all cheats are listed in this topic.

In that case, you'll have to live with the traffic. I suggest you use a Remington for the race. It's more stable than the other lowriders and won't spin out easily. Begin the race cautiously avoiding the traffic and not crashing into the other lowriders. The other lowriders might crash, that's when you take your chance to get ahead of them. Once you approach the first right turn, then speed up.

You can pick the time of day (when there is less traffic) to run the race too.

Main thing, as said, drive sanely and avoid spinning out. The other racers will let you win if you don't hit any of them.

Crouch behind planter and usse auto-aim inside the building.

Get the armour before you leave. (It's behind the counter across the room)

Never shoot at the Truck.
Take out motorcycles first then automobiles.

In the tunnel use the exploding barrels if possible.

Skill aquired doing this mission will be used in latter missions.

If you have the SMG it will be changed by the game to the lesser powerful Micro-SMG. So build up a your skill with it first.

Thanks for the tip! I got it with only 1 try after reading your post.

And also I wanted to add one more point,

press the button and hold when it's half entered in the circle, and release the button when it's exactly inside the circle.


I'm playing on PS3, btw.

Raptomex, you�re responding to a comment that was made almost 4 years ago (June 20, 2005)� I guessing that the person who made that comment has already figured that out or has long since given up. smile.gif

Wow. Holy sh*t. Epic fail. I didn't even notice that. Lol.

In case anyone else has the same problem, i found the reason of the problem.

When she asks you if you want to dance, you have to reply to her otherwise nothing happens.

In other words, press Y when she asks you whats up, and press Y a second time when she asks if you want to dance.

PS. I realise barely anyone plays it now and its been 4 years since the last reply but just in case...
