The Ultimate Game Starter

Introduction
As there isn't a PC message board for GTA III I figured this would be the most appropriate section. This is The Ultimate Game Starter, I've basically done everything that's possible before doing mission two for Luigi. The following tasks have been passed or completed.

Statistics
Percentage completed: 54%
Mission attempts: 9
Missions passed: 9 out of 73
Times busted: 0
Hospital visits: 0
Unique jumps passed: 20/20
Rampages passed: 20/20
Hidden packages: 99/100
*


Storymode
Luigi: Luigi's Girl


I/E Garages
Portland Import/Export Garage: Completed
Shoreside Vale Import/Export Garage: BF Injection needed.
Emergency Vehicle Crane: Barracks OL & Rhino needed.


Vehicle Missions (R3)
Paramedic: Level 12 completed
Vigilant: 20 criminals busted on all three islands
Firetruck: 20 fires put out on all three islands
Taxi: 100 Taxi Fares completed


Toyz
Diablo Destruction: Completed
Mafia Massacre: Completed
Casino Calamity: Completed
Rumpo Rampage: Completed


Off Road Missions
Patriot Playground: Completed
A Ride In The Park: Completed
Multi Story Mayhem: Completed
Gripped: Completed


*The missing package is in the middle of the bridge connecting Staunton Island and Shoreside Vale. Stand in the middle and wait for the bridge to lift up.

Any feedback/glitches/mistakes would be appreciated.

Hey Astarot, I cannot thank you enough. I've edited the first post with credits and the new link. I just suck at the Dodo.

I was getting a little worried this post would go without someone trying it, so I assume it all worked OK? thanks again.

Thanks Yatesyz. happy.gif

The reason behind it was purely for myself, I wanted to set the goal of completing everything thats possible, after doing so I figured it wouldn't hurt to share. I know a lot of people don't play GTA III now, but later on if they feel like doing storymore they have all the other crap done.

I'm going to be starting a Vice City one soon, if I can't find anyone else who has done the same idea.

But don't forget the Purple Nines Glitch! Everytime you start a new game first check if they spawn in Wichita Gardens (I can say that everytime when I start new game they keep spawning. I never was a victim of this glitch YET).

I was under the impression that particular glitch was only on the Playstation 2.
Edit: OK looked into it, an found it's also on PC. Thanks for alerting me, I'll add the fix into the first post.

Actualy Demarest is the man that we have to thank about this trick. He was the first who found it (i think). He closed his site a long time ago, but you can see the remained HTML files in web.archive.com - http://web.archive.o...tfads.com/gta3/
go to gta 3/VC videos and there is one video "getting the lift bridge hidden package - 1m 39s / 9.03 MB ". Actualy you won't be able to download it.

Hey there, thanks for the link. I'll update it.

I'm not being rude, and I respect Demarest a lot, I've never spoken to him but I am familiar with most of his work. I credited Astarot for completing that particular package, not for finding it. I'm not bragging here but it doesn't take a genius to work out how to get the package.. I knew how to get it long before I ever heard of GTAForums.

Thank you, that would be nice. I have no idea how I would apply for it to be pinned. Perhaps you could PM a mod and vote for it? I'm not sure how the system works here.

Well I've just PM'd a mod, so we'll see how that goes. If not I'll take it up on the suggestion board.

Ontopic: I'm currently working on The Ultimate Game Starter for Vice City.. Would anyone be interested?

It would be interesting indeed. I would like to see what side missions can be done before you start single player.

Go for it. biggrin.gif

I believe this shows you how to get onto the second island at the start of the game.

Good job on the starter save for GTA 3, it would be very useful, and might get more people to play it since all that basically has to be done are the story missions. This should be pinned, so it won't fall to the last page as people add new topics to this section.

And on the idea of the starter save for Vice City, it too would be a good idea, as that is another game that isn't played much anymore since SA and the two stories games are out now.

Wow, Pinned. Thanks a lot Justin (also sent you a PM saying ty tounge.gif )

I would like to thank everyone here also for their kind comments.

As for getting Vice City, it's already been started.. I'm sad to say that it isn't proving too great.. So i have a challenge on my hand, my aim is to do everything possible before mission 2. I will be using Demarest little trick for the second island and giving him credit for it, I'm a big fan of his. tounge.gif Not sure when the Vice City Ultimate Game Starter will be up, In the next 7/10 days I hope. Thanks again.

Great job, Del!

Last year I created a master save for San Andreas; and after that one for Vice City:

The link is http://gtasnp.com/2589

Aim of this save game was to complete all that can be done in Vice City WITHOUT doing the Story Missions.
No cheats or mods or whatever were used.

The following were found to be impossible to accomplish at this moment in the game:
* 3 consecutive jumps: only available during and after "G-spot" mission.
* 2 consecutive jumps near the Cortez yacht: accessible after Cortez' missions.
* Shooting Range in Ammu Nation Downtown: available after "The Shootist" mission.
* 4 helicopter checkpoint missions: no heli's appear until "Phnom Penh '86" mission.

The story missions + the above challenges will get you to 100%... and the Frankie T-shirt. cool.gif


I was searching here if anyone had done something about a master save for GTA3. Lucky you thought about that!! I will try it in a minute. tounge.gif
Would you know if it is possible to save on the 2nd or 3rd islands immediately at the beginning of the game? I don't manage. Have the idea you first have to get your inmate-friend to the 1st hide-out. A pity.

Hmm - strange. I jumped the bridge immediately after the cut scene. When I got to the hide-out I could open the garage but not save the game. Went to the 3rd island - same story there.
Since you say it is possible I will try again... I'll keep you posted.

Directly after the cut scene you're in a mission, taking 8-ball to the Portland hide-out. Complete that mission and the hideouts become available to save in.

Thanks for your kind words also, I didn't see you do a master save for ViceCity, I searched high and low. I did see one that was almost a master save but he missed a few stuff, however he was only missing one unique jump.. and you say a few is impossible to do?

For a few of the building jumps, I got a truck with a ramp at the back and jumped up them tounge.gif However I'm not sure which ones, I'll go back and check. My ViceCity release isn't gonna be done quite yet, I'm working my ass off all this week and purchasing my PS3 and GTAIV on the 29th smile.gif It's the ONLY reason im buying a PS3.

Something laughing me is you MUST complete Give Me Liberty and Luigi's Girls in order to continue otherwise if you blow up the car or kill Misty or whatever it'll put u at same spot and then gangs start hating which makes it a nightmare to go back and collect 'em, I forgot about that and did the storyline now it's impossible to get into Portland.
