Re: Mission Photo Opportunity...

Do you actually need to have the target villain in the frame for each photo?
I always have done so far, I never had any problems with it. But now you've got me wondering

What if you look away and photograph the trees, or Cesar or something?
What it the villain you're meant to take a photo of is looking away or if they are obscured by something?

    Steve

Just out of curiosity I just tried it when I turned around and pointed the camera at Cesar and took a few photos of him. It was odd, the camera kept trying to point back towards the bad guys. I had to force it away from them smile.gif

If you just don't take any photos then you fail.
But even if you take photos of other things as the bad guys arrive, if the camera is pointing a long way away from them, then you fail.

However, if their faces are obscured by something or if they're facing away from you, as long as they're in the frame somewhere, then that counts as a pass

Steve

Edit:
The one to watch out for seems to be T-Bone. If you don't take a photo of him while he's by his car then there isn't a second chance. I took these photos of him:

But that still failed the mission. It kept saying I needed to get a photo of his face

dssaee -- Line the crates by the door before you let him in. Then jump off the forking lift to kill the guardsmen when Ryder tells you their there, and Ryder won't even be nicked.

I had problems with that photo op mission as well! I nearly gave up but after about 10 times i had memorized where they appeared each time and i nailed it by photoing them about 5 times each face square on. It was so frustating though driving all that way and failing so i just tried it once a day until i passed it.

To me I get frustrated in some missions but dont hate them but the missions I do hate are the countryside missions!! They are so annoying, very annoying so annoying. Its boring boring boring. They should've made it that if you have completed the game you could skip some missions if you dont want to do them. I HATE THE COUNTRY SIDE MISSIONS!!!!! THEY ARE BORING POINTLESS AND ANNOYING TAKES AGES OF TRAVELING! I hate GTA SA when I have to do the countryside missions.

QUOTE (Vercetti27 @ Feb 10 2009, 20:49)
In the early parts of the game there are loads of these. OG Loc can be annoying if you fall of your bike. Lifes a beach can be really annoying becuase dancing is really difficult I find. Doing the lowrider meets is easier. Robbing Uncle Sam becuase it takes absolutley ages. Wrong side of the tracks, until I learnt to jump onto the train.
In the countryside there are no really annoying missions, but I did find farewell my love to be a little challenging.
Snail trail takes ages and is annoying, like photo oppurtunity. Mike Toreno is also a little annoying if you can't find the van.
I also found interdiction a little tricky, but is fun nonetheless. NOE is tough, as well is the one where you destroy the counterfeit chips.

I just wanted to hear what everyone else says becuase I've heard this is the most annoying GTA. Also, bike school was a bitch.

I'm good at dancing.

OG Loc - I hated this.

Life's a Beach - Couldn't figure out how to get to the dancing part for a while.

Robbing Uncle Sam - You high, homie? This was one of the best early levels: you got to rob the US Military! It could be frustrating, but the trick is to help Ryder every time a gunfight starts.
Wrong Side of the Tracks - It was annoying, but not too hard.

Snail Trail - It takes ages, it isn't hard though. I got pissed off when I won the level and was smack in the underbelly of Los Santos, a bajillion miles from San Fierro.

Photo Opportunity - It takes a long time, but if you go via the Easter Tunnel to the first "point" (Cesar) you cut out a lot of travel time. I missed it the first time because of stupid Toreno, but the lesson is that you should always look around; the second time I finished with flying colors.

Mike Toreno - Yeah, this one pisses me off because the "Signal" bar works like crap, and on a good day it is hard to navigate the airport.

Interdiction - Hard, I often shot my one heli down.

NOE - You high again? This one has to be one of the easiest. Tip: stick to the seas AROUND San Fierro and Whetstone, that way it is
easier to fly. Afterwards, go via the strait between Flint County and Red County and up through the Sherman Dam area.

You've Had Your Chips - It's hard, but it's one of the best. Tip: you know the Burger Shot near the factory? When your health gets too low, flee to there, eat, and then head back.


My most hated mission was the laps level of the Driving School and the circle airstrip level of the Flying School, and the dang airplane mission for Zero. The Hydra in that Navy level was difficult to handle, but it had wonderful weapons to balance that out.

Currently, I'm pissed off over Grove 4 Life. I mean, they expect you to take FOUR territories in one sitting! I spent a while taking over all but one Idlewood territory out of hopes that it would decrease my workload in the mission, but then it just reverted right back to being Ballas territory.

I don't mind any of the flying missions, except for Air Raid by Zero. It's a good thing I can just skip him and do all the other missions. ^^

Ahh yes Air Raid is another one, but you can just cheat to do that one. Not good advice for someone who wants to complete the game without cheats, but it can be done, as I did it ages ago on my PS2 version. tounge.gif

An example of each persons skills are different.
I've never been able to get on that train, as soon as CJ gets to the platform the trains is moving away.
The last two of Zero's missions are (to me) the easiest.
The Patriot's in the raid destroy themselves on the bridge. It was the crate loading and guardsmen that causes most problems for new players.

I find the shooting section of Up, Up and Away hard. I passed End of the Line several times with ease, but I have trouble in Up, Up and Away, even now. They aim darn good.

Jet pack up to the top of the fuel tanks from the south. Snipe the three guards. then go to the lower level below the copter pad.
Either use the HEAT missile launcher or the provided Mini-gun on the defending copters.

well with a fast bike u can enter the train i think , i dont remember what i was driving

i dont find zero missions particulary hard, i find them annoying, i want to be in a vhecile, not rc it damn it

regarding patriots didnt kno that, certanly never happend to me, maybe the reason is i never "instruct" ryder to lose some of the crates

Oh god Flying School Was a complete Waste of time and a Pain in the ass. i mean they should have an option whether to skip flying school or not.. the worse ones were destroy targets with that hunter and fly around and land. the mission that Pissed me off was where you had to kill toreno in that helicopter. and Vertical Bird was Gay just Gay.. i had to retry around 10 times.

Personaly, I passed every mission in 1 to 5 tries, but for me the most annoying (and I'm not telling hard, yet annoying) are definitely Catalina missions. That girl has some serious problem with her talking and behaviour. I hated her. I also hated her stupid calls every once and a while after robbing that 4 places. But the hardest mission for me was definitely a vertical bird.

I always found the jetpack a bit too slow. Instead, you can also use a Maverick or Sea Sparrow. The Maverick on top of the Emerald Isle heli-pad is the closest and can be accessed easily by parachuting off a Shamal.

Stay close to the ground and the Jet-pack moves faster than if you have altitude. Same with copters.

I know but the jetpack seems a bit too far away compared to Emerald Isle's maverick. Besides, the uneven ground from the desert to the city makes it difficult to achieve a good speed. The one that the jetpack has in its favor, however, is how the maverick takes some time to spawn. Both methods are easy but I usually barge in there with guns blazing. cool.gif

Yeah, I agree that Supply Lines was very annoying. Well, I did clear that mission on my first try later, but the mission was very hard at first, especially because of the time limit. I didn't like to handle that plane either.

Another mission I didn't like was when you had to drive to the countryside and then back to the city where you came from. I don't remember what the mission was called though. It wasn't hard, but as far as I know the mission had a time limit and it was a very boring mission.

At first I didn't like the Flying School missions either, because I thought they were pretty hard. They aren't bad know, and I think I just forgot how to handle those plane wheels. My english wasn't that good at the time so I used to ignore many cutscenes and texts.

I hate these missions:

-The Da Nang Thang because you will lost your weapons

-The Green Sabre because you will lost your weapons

-Photo Opportunity because it's boring when you're traveling a long journey

-Jizzy because those vehicles (Stretch and Huntley) are f****** fast

-A Home in The Hills because the Windsor is crap

-OG Loc because if you bump while chasing Freddy, you'll lose him

But the most hated mission is:

Ice Cold Killa because the crack dealers shoot you

Wait, I also didn't like the mission 'Jizzy'. I thought the mission was quite easy when I first played it, but for some reason I had problems with it later, when I wanted to beat the game again. I don't know if the mission is easy or hard now, but the mission has never really been funny to play at all.

The mission where you have to kill Jizzy is so f*cking annoying! Untill i found out how to hinder his escape. When i get there, i shoot his pimp car so it blows up, then shoot every other car.
Last time i did that, he hopped on a Pizza Stack scooter and i was able to run him down with a fire-truck instantly!

The mission where you have to kill alll the cholos in the big mansion is also very annoying! Big Poppa gets away so easily and you can hardly catch him!

Most of Zero's missions were annoying also
