This was originally posted on March 20, 2007

UPDATED on July 30, 2008 >> Videos added
This is v1 (the original version) without any mods, patches, or upgrades.
NO CHEATS
This is a completely legitimate game .

download it here

This version is currently 13.37% complete up the mission “In The Beginning”

Also, C.J. has never been Wasted or Busted.

Anything that can be done prior to ALL of the story missions has been completed, and I mean everything, well, short of becoming ‘King of San Andreas’.
This was done just to see how many things could be completed immediately after the game began, and before the mission “Big Smoke”

This saved-game starts on:
Wednesday at 06:30
which is the same day and time that Tenpenny and Pulaski throw C.J. into the alley at the beginning of the game.
Technically it actually starts at 6:28, because after the game is first loaded up, there’s 2 seconds of visual fade-in before you can actually see the time display. I did this intentionally by saving the game on a Wednesday at 00:28.

The game is saved at the Jefferson Safe house, which is less than 2 blocks from that same alley.

I tried to keep Safehouse visits to a minimum; there are 17 total.

C.J. has the following:
1) $999,999,999 (I used the Inside Track Betting trick to get it that high - no cheats or mods.)
2) Armor at 150
3) Pilot Ranking of “Ace”
4) Minigun, and all of the best weapons
The Minigun, M4, SMG, and Combat Shotgun all have 10,000 + rounds each, so ammo totals don't show.
5) Pilots License has been obtained and he has access to all airports, but he still hasn't taken Pilot School yet.
6) Luck at 1000
7) Health increased to maximum: 150
8) Full Muscle
9) C.J. is wearing the white shorts from the Chiliad Challenge, and is marked up with tattoos from both San Fierro and Las Ventures. He also has full muscles.
10) All 6 available Safehouses have been purchased.
11) 4 vehicles for Exports & Imports (three for the 1st list) have been stored in the Doherty garage in San Fierro: a Patriot , Cheetah , Infernus , and a Euros (for the 3rd list)
12) Total Respect has increased enough so that C.J. can run a 6-man gang

The following side-missions have been completed:
1) Firefighter Mission
2) Paramedic Mission
3) Taxi Mission
4) Pimping Mission
5) Burglary Mission
6) Vigilante Mission
7) The Roboi's Food Mart Courier Mission in Los Santos
8) The Hippy Shopper Courier Mission in San Fierro
9) The Burger Shot Courier Mission in Las Venturas
10) Weapon Skill Levels are all at ‘Hitman’ (I did a lot of shooting - no cheats or mods)

Also, the following Challenges have been completed:
1) BMX Challenge
2) Chiliad Challenge, Scotch Bonnet
3) Chiliad Challenge, Birdseye Winder
4) Chiliad Challenge, Cobra Run
5) NRG-500 Challenge

And, all of the Stadium Events have been completed:
1) 8-Track
2) Blood Ring
3) Kickstart
4) Dirt Track

In addition to all of that:
1) 100 out of 100 Tags have been sprayed
2) 50 out of 50 Snapshots have been taken
3) 50 out of 50 Oysters have been collected
4) 50 out of 50 Horseshoes have been collected
5) 70 out of 70 Unique Jumps found
6) 69 out of 70 Unique Jumps completed

All skills have been maxed out:
1) Flying Skill
2) Bike Skill
3) Cycling Skill
4) Gambling Skill, ‘Whale’ status, he can borrow up to $1,000,000
5) Driving Skill (I did a lot of driving - no cheats or mods)

There are no failed missions.
The ‘Mission Attempts’ total is higher than the ‘Missions Passed’ total due to missions such as the Chiliad Challenge which offsets both of these totals.

Fast Food places are already open, due to a disastrous date with Michelle.

The original audio message that C.J. says as he approaches Grove is still there. I used other missions to keep from triggering it.
I moved vehicles into the Johnson house garage, and sprayed painted the Gang Tag that’s on the base of the overpass bridge on Grove Street during those missions.

All garages contain fast and/or rare vehicles, including a Seasparrow that’s been stored on top of the Mulholland Safe house garage. They were obtained during various Vigilante missions without cheats; Euros, Hotknife, etc.
I used the Vigilante trick to get special vehicles to spawn - no cheats or mods.

All i information icons are still in place.

C.J. has the following weapons:
1. Brass Knuckles
2. Knife
3. Desert Eagle
4. SMG (MP5)
5. M4
6. Combat Shotgun
7. Sniper Rifle
8. Minigun
9. Tear Gas
10. Camera
11. Silver Vibrator
12. Parachute

Here are other various Stats:
Criminal Ranking:
OG, 211023

Player:
Armor: 150
Pilot Ranking: Ace
Times Drowned: 0
Number of Hospital Visits: 0
Total number of Girlfriends: 3
Luck: 1000

Crimes:
Times Busted: 0

Achievements:
Progress with Michelle 10.00%
Progress with Barbara 15.00%
Progress with Katie 15.00%
Unique Jumps found: 70 out of 70
Unique Jumps done: 69 out of 70
Tags Sprayed: 100 out of 100
Snapshots taken: 50 out of 50
Oyster Collected: 50 out of 50
Horseshoes collected: 50 out of 50

Mission:
Mission Attempts: 17
Missions Passed: 15

Misc:
Progress Made: 13.37%
Safehouse Visits: 17

I wanted to thank OrionSR for letting me know that additional Vigilante Missions would not increase the Mission Attempts total; it helped with this Ultimate Starter game.

Video Guide - How to do 4-Star missions at the very beginning of the game
This Video Guide was created on July 30, 2008

I created these videos myself to show people how do missions (and other things) in 4-Star Wanted Areas.
The videos were are not actually of the Ultimate Game Start itself, but they do demonstrate how the missions were completed and what tactics I used.

I figured out all of the tactics on my own… the only exception being the LV Jump from Red County into Las Venturas on the NRG-500… that was created by OrionSR and rubregg… I really appreciate their help on that. OrionSR also told me that it was possible to jump a vehicle from Santa Maria Beach into Flint County at the Flint Intersection.

One thing before I download though.
Are all weapon stats maxed out?
That would be helpful.

I'm very surprised that much could be done without cheating. I would think having a four-star wanted level would nix an chance at getting many jumps, for one thing.

I'm trying to make my own "start" game, too. But I had done the first three missions, so I could have the tags done and weapons at my safe house, and so I could eat to regain health. Aside from the hot dog stand near the Starfish place on the boardwalk, I don't know where you can eat early in the game. I also don't know how you manage to spray tags without the spray can in your safe house!

It's hard enough to grab the miniguns in Las Venturas early in the game; I can't imagine doing all the jumps with a 4-star wanted level.

Whenever you find a unique jump, you need to finish it off (a particular height and distance that you need to attain) in order for it to be registered as completed.
However, if you miss the mark, the jump is recorded as only found and not completed and you need to attempt it again.

...and since you can't attain the required distance/height for the jump from the scaffolding under the Gant Bridge (due to the invisible barriers), that jump can only be recorded as 'found'.

Thanks for the explanation. So that Jump can not be completed at all or can you complete it once you have unlocked everything?

Exactly, once the Desert becomes unlocked, that barrier is removed. It’s impossible to complete that jump prior to that point (obviously).
It’s kind of a frustrating jump, because I lost the bike afterwards, and then was I left swimming as quickly as I could to the shore, and then trying to find another vehicle to avoid the cops, and all I got was the ‘found’ status for doing that.

Just wanted to say that the CORRECT location of the file is:

http://gtasnp.com/file.php/4572/1

and not:

http://gtasnp.com/file.php/4572/1/v2

as whenever I tried to get it from the latter location (as it is currently listed), it always came back with a 0k file.

But since the OP said this was for v1, then I simply tried taking off the /v2 from the end, and got the correct file.

Just wanted to post that for those peeps that may be having trouble getting the file.

You can download it from here.

Or alternatively, you can also try crazyanurag's Crazy Starter Save.

And take off that email id if you don't want it to be full of spam.

Follow this link. You might have to register over there though.

Alternatively, you can also try the crazy starter save I have linked to in my previous post.

I have been away from these forums for a while… and I didn’t know that the link had expired.

I have been working on a new Ultimate Game Start… I’ll upload it later today to the Save-N-Play website; then I’ll correct the download-link for it.
edit: UPDATED on June 26, 2008

The Stats on the newer save are slightly better, but not by much. I have been gradually trying to reach the Criminal Rating of High Roller (300,000) before doing any of the story missions. It takes a lot longer when I have to constantly drive around collecting ammo; the Ammu-Nation is still not open yet.

I have finally been able to figure out how to get the Bullet from San Fierro to Los Santos; so I have two of those in the new save.

I am also trying to get a Turismo from Las Venturas. In previous games, I had been able to get the Turismo and the Phoenix to appear by using the Vigilante trick… but not this time.

I have been able to get the Turismo from LV to Los Santos during one of the Mission Exploits, but that was without the 4-Star Wanted Level… and the few times I got it across with a Wanted Level, it would explode because of all the damage it got.

I believe he's talking about the "Grove Street - Home. At least it was before I f*cked everything up." audio clip that is played the first time CJ enters Grove Street. There's one tag, on the bridge west of Grove Street, that can't be sprayed normally without triggering the audio clip. And since in the save file, zmoonchild has sprayed all the tags and the line hasn't been played, Mainland Marauder is wondering why/how.

I think he sprayed it while doing side missions, like pimping. He would drive to Grove Street, get out of the car, spray the tag, and get back in to continue the mission. Since you're on a mission the audio clip won't be triggered and you can spray the tag. smile.gif

You're correct on which audio message I was referring to, radicell

I actually sprayed the tag during the Burglary Mission… then I moved the vehicles into C.J.’s garage by starting a Vigilante Mission… the Mission Attempts tally didn’t increase because Vigilante had already been passed prior to that, so additional missions don’t get added to that tally.

I don't have the copyrights for the music in them, so for now, they're private... otherwise YouTube will remove the audio without my consent... It's the only thing that I can do for now; sorry about that.

Probably because of the radio stations, and the fact YouTube has copyright maffia lately removing some music even in GTA videos. sad.gif Removing radio without the rest of the audio is almost impossible without re-recording sad.gif

Yea I hate those fags in YouTube. Maybe You could try audioswap? It wouldn't hurt you since everyone is allowed to use these sh*tty tracks...
Well, I guess I don't need the savegame, even though its pretty nice, since i'm somewhere around 75% myself (with savegames downloaded twice since i got a problem with 2 missions and I couldn't buy the car shop even though i finished driving school with all golds and i've finished all the missions (so i'm sure yay ka-boom-boom is completed too haha)

So yeah, i suggest you'd try audioswap, it'll help you out for sure if you want others to see your vids (and if you want subscribers alien.gif )

edit: I think i know why the cutscene is bugged. I got a mod called SA real restaurants. Normally it works good, but after i looked at the backups folder (i use SAMI and it backups itself) i noticed that installing this made a few changes to my cutscenes.img aswell (a lot of them actually) so i guess i'll just uninstall that and it should be fine. and yeah, sry for triple post
