I don't think so. Anyway is there the FBI car parked in some place or the one way to get it is just by stealing it?

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. .
I understand. So Yatesyz has got it wrong or I didn't get understand him. tounge.gif

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

Last time I checked you could find my save here: http://gtasnp.com/2589
I heard that it should be possible to get on the Hospital for 2 more jumps. Perhaps it's possible to do the 2 Cortez jumps as well? My stunt biking skills are zero and I got fed up with it. Sure some 'Stunt Biking Hero' can add this to the save game.

Regards and good luck with GTA4. I'm waiting for the pc release. confused.gif

I said you can save at any of the three islands at the start but you can't save half way through a mission which you have to complete as soon as you start the game.

So I'm not wrong. sneaky2.gif

Correct, I did not understand your definition of 'at the start'. In San Andreas 'the start' is: as soon as you are in control of CJ. In GTA3 this is different; no problem.

Believe it or not I actually picked one up during a vigilant mission.. I've never seen any type of law vehicle before.

I've never obtained a 5 star wanted level whilst doing the island hopping, but from what I gather you need to officially open the second island in order to activate 5 stars.

I really wish I wrote a lot of the stuff down now how I completed it, but I done this starter save over a period of two days and rushed everything wanting to get to Vice City.

When you get close to him, press pause, then when you resume... the criminal will get out of his car.

Uh, confused.gif I think that you couldn't understand me. I was asking how he found the FBI car during a vilignate mission.

I've recently got all of the GTA games on PC and Im finding a lot of them have strange things. In San Andreas a lot of the cars drive on two wheels.

In GTA III I'm finding certain cars where they shouldn't be. I see someone steal an ambulance once, started up vigilant mode and I had to chase him, so I guess the FBI car is plausable.

I also could of had a Barracks OL aswell, but had no way of getting it from Staunton Island to Portland for the I/E garage. The only car that's impossible to reach is a BF injection as they don't spawn until a certian mission is completed.

Hoi (Del), I just want to let you know that I used your Ultimate Save to get to 100% - so it works! icon14.gif

I had to do it twice though, had forgotten about this:
Kenji Kasen: (Kenji's Casino in Torrington)(Warning: Complete all of Kenji's missions first before Donald Love's, otherwise you will not get 100%)
Indeed some missions cannot be completed if you play the other way round.

Did you get my Vice City Ultimate Save?
Regards!

I'm glad it works. When releasing stuff like this I find I always get a bit paranoid that it won't work for other people lol.. But you've put my mind at rest.. an yeah the whole mission order is a bit tricky, luckily I've never come across that path..

An I got an FBI via the vigilant method, it's a well known method for FBI's.

Sadly the Vice City starter is still in progress, if i'm honest I just stopped trying.. I figured as the release of GTA IV is approaching no-one is really interested in the oldies. But if you want it, I will get it sorted.. I can't put a date on it.. but it will be worked on.

Firstly, congrats on a job well done, (Del).
Secondly, I'd like to ask - did you get the vigilante trick (to obtain the FBI car) to work more than once or was it only in this save of your's?
Just asking. I thought I'd try this myself but don't seem to be having any luck.
Thanks in advance.

Hey there. Sorry for the late replying. Been stuck on the PS3 for a bit. tounge.gif

Yes I obtainted an FBI car via the vigilant method, if I'm completely honest with you I don't remember it much.. I was rushing it in frustration to get those hidden packages out of the way, I remember getting the FBI car then moving onto the next vehicle not giving it much thought. I hadnt played GTA at that point in just over 2 years so wasn't that clued up on how rare the FBI car was.

On a side note, I know I've said this many times, but tonight ive just started The Ultimate Starter for Vice City. My PS3 burnt out 3 days ago, so I need something to past the time whilst Sony do their magic. moto_whistle.gif

I've downloaded the file, but I can't figure out which folder it's supposed to go in. Does the file extension need renaming? I can't find any other 'b' files.

It is on gtaSnP, so just click on the number that represents the save spot you want to use. When you download it(the save), just put it in your GTA 3 User Files Folder in "My Documents"-if on XP or in "Documents" if on Vista and use the XP compatibilty mode or no compatibiblty mode at all. If you have another save currently in that spot, it will warn you, just click yes to replace it with the current download or pick another save slot. Hope this helps.

Holy crap, does it ever. I ransacked every folder under C:\Program Files\Rockstar Games\GTAIII trying to find the saved game files. I had no idea they were in 'My Documents'.

Thank you very much!

Why there still 99 of 100 packages? The last one can be easily retrieved with dodo.
