Have a question about a mission and need some suggestions/tips or need a mission(s) done for you or maybe you're the helping type and just want to pitch in and help out around here. Then you've come to the right place.

Getting Mission Help without getting the mission done for you:
Easy, just create a topic and tell everyone what problems you're having with what mission. It's a good idea to use the mission name as your topic title, don't just leave it as "Help" or something else vague.
Getting a mission done for you / Using Save N Play:
• Create a topic in the Mission Help forum. Use the title [SnP] "mission name" (do not include the quotes). For example: [SnP] Three Leaf Clover
• In the body of the topic, list all the missions you want done, preferably using the following format:
Missions: mission names here (separate mission names by ',' or a '/')
Link: the URL to your saved game here (Need a place to upload it? Read the next post)
Notes: anything you want the helper to be aware of when they do the mission for you
DO NOT use someone else's topic to get a mission of your own done. One person to a topic please.
DO NOT email or PM me or anyone else with mission requests. Create a new topic to make your request. That is one of the reasons this forum is here for.
DO NOT use SnP topics for discussing mission strategies unless the requester has specifically asked for suggestions/tips.
DO NOT create more than one topic for the same mission request. If no one has replied to your request, please be patient. Wait at least 12 hours before bumping your SnP topic.
Please help out the helpers by remembering to do the following things. These are in order of what I personally feel are most important.
1. Try to have enough weapons and ammo to be able to complete the mission.
No one wants to have to get in the middle of a shootout and only have 5 rounds of ammo and only a pistol.
2. Try to have full armor. Of course, there is lots of armor around the map but once again, having full armor saves time for the helper.
Doing a mission for someone else:
These people are called Helpers. Your job is simple, find a topic that starts with [SnP] and that is NOT locked or already completed and do the mission. Once you have completed the mission please use the following format to post your results into that topic. This is not a compulsion; just a suggestion since it makes your post appear neat.
For: name of the person whose mission you've done
Missions: list of missions you completed
Helper: your name
Link: the URL to the saved game that you completed for the above person (Need a place to upload it? Read the next post)
It's also a good idea if you make a quick reply in the topic that you are going to be doing a mission and you're working on it. Something as simple as "I'm on it" will be fine. After you complete the request, just edit your post with the completed request.
Important Pre-requisites for Save N Play:
Please note that in order to load someone else's savegame on your PC, you'll need to use one of the following methods:
Also note that for the above methods to work, you need to have a patched copy of the game (v1.0.1) and the above suggested methods will disable multiplayer.
You need not worry though. The effect of the Xlive wrapper can be reverted and you can play multiplayer by creating a new savegame without using the wrapper.
IMPORTANT: Both the requester and the helper will have to follow and apply one of the above suggested methods. It'd be better if you test which one of the methods work for you before requesting a SnP or helping in a SnP topic.
