^^ that's a glitch, not an easter egg. And it's "Messing with the man" btw.

Tell me how it is a glitch?

A ped appears where he isn't supposed to. That's clearly a programming error. Not something the authors put there intentionally.

The head always shows up, and the head isnt moving or stuck. It dosnt show when you get in the interior in-game though. It's supposed to be there and it seems like a object placed there from the cutscene.img.

There is no cutscene.img in VC. Only cuts.img, and that contains animation data, not models. You're right that the guy is placed there intentionally. It's the same biker Mitch is arm wrestling in the beginning. But it's still a glitch, as he is of course supposed to be above ground. His Z coordinate is too low, obviously.

Mitch Baker closely resembles Waigro (Kevin Gage) from the movie Heat.

Back when I got vice for ps2, I was on a mission to get the skimmer. Well after the dildo dodo mission I had one. I got pretty talented with that little plane. But I discovered that if you pulled up in to a stall and reversed the throttle you could fly backwards. I made a tut for it months ago, here is the link tut. You guys should try it!

Part of the recipe in "Love Juice" calls for 5 Fizz Bombs.

Thanks to Colin Attle, a friendly UK reader who's offered me several useful tips, for the tip that "Fizz Bombs" (I thought they might be drinks with seltzer) are little fruit flavored balls of candy with a sour coating in the UK:

There are numerous references to "Miami Vice" (1984), including the casting of Philip Michael Thomas as Lance Vance.

Every license plate in Vice City reads "VC R29".


The Kaufman Cab company is a reference to comedian 'Andy Kaufman' , who starred in the television series "Taxi" (1978).


On one of the talk-show stations in the game (VCPR), a "motivational speaker" names off a few of his treatment tapes. All of the titles, when abbreviated, are names of drugs. "Motivate, Demonstrate, then Motivate Again" becomes MDMA (Ectasy), "Think, Hold that thought, Complete" becomes THC, and "Learn, Start, Do" becomes LSD.


In the mission "Autocide", the men Tommy has to kill all have names similar to those of characters from games that are based on the Grand Theft Auto games: Mike Griffin (Mace Griffin from Mace Griffin Bounty Hunter (2003) (VG)) Dick Tanner (Tanner from Driver (1999) (VG) and its sequels) Marcus Hammond, Franco Carter and Charlie Dilson (Mark Hammond, Frank Carter and Charlie Jolson from _Getaway, The (2002/I) (VG)_ ) Nick Kong (Nick Kang from True Crime: Streets of LA (2003) (VG))


Two of the missions are called "Cop Land" and "No Escape". No Escape (1994) and Cop Land (1997) are movies that star Ray Liotta (who voices Tommy Vercetti).


During one scene, Diaz shoots an unplugged VCR because it wouldn't eject "my favorite El Burro movie". El Burro is a gang leader in Grand Theft Auto 3, who specialized in pornographic videos.


In the beginning movie Tommy Vercetti is picked up from the airport to make a cocaine deal. The airport is called Escobar International. This is a reference to a real life cocaine dealer Pablo Escobar who was the richest cocaine trafficker during the 1980s through the early 1990s.


The license plate number for Love Fist's limousine is "LUVF1ST".

After entering the upstairs office of the Malibu Club, look on the left wall and you will see a large mural of palm trees tinted red by the setting sun. It is the same mural that adorns the office wall of Lopez Motors, owned by Frank Lopez...Tony Montana's (Scarface) boss.


One of the posters in Phil's trailer is actually from a Maxim magazine cover featuring Joanna Taylor. It is located in the bedroom on the left side of the bed.


Some vans have the words "Top Fun" on the side of them, with red and blue patterns around the words. These vans are the vans that start remote control challenges. The pattern of the red and blue, and the words "Top Fun" are copied from the movie "Top Gun" with the exact pattern.


One of the stoners at the Boatyard asset wears a shirt with the word "North" and a star on it, a possible reference to developer Rockstar North.


Some of the chants you can hear during the mission "Riot" are the same ones that are in the game "Hooligans: Storm over Europe"

turn trails off on display to improve graphics.

kill everyone in the pole position club to see a different stripper.

the fat builders voice is the butcher from the cartoon series "hey arnold".

candy suxxx is voiced by legendary porn star jenna jameson.

The band's members from love fist are Jezz Torrent, Willy, Dick and Percy. The last three names are all slang terms for penis, while Jezz, when said in a Scottish accent, is heard as "Jizz"

The Pole Position Club has two possible meanings. Back in the day, Atari had a game called Pole Position, which was Indy cars racing and stuff. The strip club has a racecar theme to the front of it.

On the Vrock radio station, you will hear an Ammunation commercial that talks about the Australian-American War. If you remember correctly from Grand Theft Auto 3, there was a caller on Chatterbox that talks about fighting in the Australian-American War.

In real life, the Bal Harbor Mall is a mall in Miami, Florida. the Washington Mall is an exact replica of it. The Bal Harbor Mall is just like it in real life and it has lots of up scale
stores like Gucci and etc.

the degenatron and pogo the monkey( arcade games mentioned on the radio) are actually in vice city and can be found in kaufman cabs and little haiti pizza restaurant , but cannot be played .Here is a link to the official degenatron site where you can actually play the 3 degenatron games advertised ....

http://www.rockstarg...com/degenatron/

between 10 and 11 am if you go to the churhc you will hear noises of the organ coming from inside , there is no organ in the church however , because if you do the rocket launcher glitch where you aim the launcher and turn into qa building , the building is empty!.

Go to Ocean Beach, just south of Ammu-Nation. There is a nice building with a fountain in front of it. If you listen carefully, between 10 and 11A.M., you can hear churchy organ music eminating from the building. So there is a church in Vice City! (what other type of place would play organ music in the morning?)

I may actually have a first here. I just wish it was at all, y'know, excit-
ing.

If you do a Cabbie Boost up into the underside of a jet at the airport, you
can see the highly mysterious face in the jet.

It had a more developed role in the original game, where Tommy talked to his
jet and his jet talked to him. But they deleted it at the last minute because
they thought it was strange.

i may also have a first find ...but not entirely sure!

while browsing through VC i came across prawn island and just started lookin 4 secrets and noticed a poster on the wall of the inter global film studio , covered by graffiti .It had a message on which said :

"Only the Monster she made could satisfy her strange desires!"

so thought i would investigate this more by researching it on the internet ....to my surprise i found out that it was a tagline from a 1971 film called lady frenkenstein ,which is about a lady who creates a frankenstein to fulfill her fantasies both sexually and intelectually !

here is a link of where i found out the film information and discovered my secret!

http://www.horror-wood.com/ladyf.htm

hope anybody else hasnt found this out lol....

if anybody would like a screenie id be happy to take one smile.gif....

not sure , but i may have another first ...

in a stage at the film studio , once you go in turn riht and you should see a table with copies of the movie bite( which is a glitch in itself because i went there when i hadnt even purchased the film studio , so candy suxxx was never introduced to steve scott and the film hadnt even started producing) ther should be a cradboard box with the bits copies inside , look on the side of the box with a sniper and you should see a picture of a man and a large box thing , this man looks familiarly like luigi ( or the other one ) off super mario brothers so could be an easter egg , it also loks like he is shoving his **** into something lol but im not sure ......

here is a screenie ...

http://img65.imagesh...dsc00412uk1.jpg

sorry about the quality was took on my phone!


if anybody could cheack see if it is a secret id be most grateful

....

also , has this been found , in downtown there is a building that reads "hostes ad pulverum ferire" which means pulverise the enemy??
