When GTA:LCS came out, I figured one of the first things to edit would be the save files, but like everything else on the PSP, they're encrypted. I've been working off and on since the game released to try to get into the savefile to edit it, and now a month later I finally got in! I'll be able to do even more with this than I did in San Andreas, but first off, time to edit helicopters into garages.

There are lots of buildings without roofs to explore, and some city blocks are unpainted inside. I found an island of rubble inside one.

This savefile is with a Police Maveric in the Staunton Garage. Unzip it to your memory card and the files should end up in PSP/SAVEDATA/ULUS10041S0. It replaces your first game save. Use the supplied PCJ 600 to push your helicopter out of the garage.
US/Canada version: http://www.maxbot.co...iInGarageUS.zip
UK/Europe version: http://www.maxbot.co...iInGarageUK.zip
(thanks to ADePSP for help with the UK version!)

It looks like it's easier to get it out with a car. Before opening the garage door, go out to the street and get a car. Get the PCJ out of the garage and park the car in the back behind the helicopter, then turn the heli's tail to one side with your head. Get in the car and push it out.

Video of pushing the heli out with a car in under 3 minutes. I really should have pushed the tail to the other side.

Oh man what a man that edison!!!! icon14.gif Your the best hacker in town atleast the fastest. icon14.gif
@DACBONE: I like your method worked fine for me I got the heli 3 times now.I guess it´s not
a big enhancement to have a heli in your garage if it takes 15min.push it out.
When you keep practicing your method I am sure you can do it way faster.Altough this leaves you on a Mission when edisons gives you the heli any time you want, as long as he has a save of the mission you want.

@edison: Is this the only heli you can spawn? I´d love to have policechoper afterall.
Man that´s really great, opens up a lot of possibilities,hah? happy.gif

And Edison here are some cookies cookie.gif cookie.gif cookie.gif cookie.gif cookie.gif cookie.gif cookie.gif cookie.gif cookie.gif cookie.gif cookie.gif

yeah great work Edison! I dunno if you finished the game, but you might have spoiled the storyline to you there. That "island of rubble" would be seen later in the game.

You can't get into observatory,becase it's not solid.(well atleast you can fly there)
And there is no such thing as ghoust town in lcs,it's was just used in only one cutscene.

I posted the US savefile in the first message. Someone please confirm that it works. I'm assuming the file is the same for US and Canada. Are savefiles from other countries really incompatible? What about UK? Maybe someone in the UK should try it.

I made it with a Police Maverick since it has better performance.

I doesn't take that long to push the heli out of the garage once you're good at it. Please post if you figure out a technique or vehicle that makes it easier.

To do an EU version, I need a save with the following:
- Saved at Staunton safehouse.
- In the Staunton garage, has a PCJ 600 to the left side and a car in the middle facing forward with the back bumper as close to the garage door as possible. Keep inching it a bit forward until the garage door will close. Pick a short car. A manana would be a good choice.
- Double check that the PCJ 600 is still there after running around the block. Sometimes it gets lost if it's too close to the side.
- Every car in every garage must be a different model.
- I need to know the model and color of every car in every garage, and tell me which is on the left and right. Please pick cars that have been around since Vice City or GTA3 so I will be able to identify them.

When you lose it doesn't come back? If you took it out of the garage, of course it's not there anymore... you need to reload.

By the way, the garage will not reclose once it's open with the tail sticking out. For curiosity, someone should push it clear in and see if the garage even saves it.

The best way I've found so far to get it out of the garage is to push the tail all the way to one side with your head, which is easy, then get behind it with the PCJ and push the side.

I can only imagine what else you are going to do with LCS. Anywho, how do you unzip the file onto your memory card? Do I download it from my PSP's browser or is there more foot work to be done?

The way i do it is to push the tail so the garage will not close then i get a car and push it out.Anyways this is pretty fun.So does this mean there are going to be MODs for LCS?
