Any insight is appreciated


1. I chose the ending where Roman Gets Killed.
Ever since then I get a busy signal when I call Kate.
If I can't reach her, why is she still on my phone?


2. I never used my "Get out of wanted level" free pass from Officer McCreary.
How come that disappeared?

3. I've flown under 13 bridges but I don't think I got the reward for it.
I've gone under bridges since then and checked for the little symbols, but they never
appear to show me if I missed a bridge. I thought there were 14 to go under.

4. How do you blow up 10 cars in 10 seconds? Even the rocket launcher can't
fire that fast, and you can only carry 8 of those anyway.

5. Is there a utility that will look at my saved games and tell me what I passed?
I seem to remember someone wrote one for GTASA, but haven't seen one here.

6. Helicopter tours: Can you go up in four tours skip ahead to the end of each tour,
and still get credit them?

7. I've met all the characters listed as far as I know, but the stats say
I've only met 13 of the 14. How do I find out which one I'm missing the meet with?

8. Is there a way to reset an individual task so I only have to do that one item again?
I don't wanna go chasing another 200 pigeons.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,

D

All of that happens in the console version too.

1. Happens too in Xbox 360 and PS3. This is a game, not real life.
2. Only appears after one mission. Also "happens in other platforms"
3. Check better, you gotta earn the achievement. Can also happen in both platforms.
4. Keep trying
5. Not yet. Just keep waiting. smile.gif
6. Nope, sorry.
7. Characters or random people showed by little "ped icons" in the map? Try going on gta4.net map.
8. Nope sorry.

So, why do you think it's only the PC version. All of these are possible and happen in other platforms too, if you have them and did pass, maybe it's a random occurrence. PC Version = Wrong Forum

Not really sure what you mean about repeating numbers.
Also, since I have only the PC version, I have no idea if something is a problem elsewhere.
The PC forum seemed to be the logical choice.

Hydro, I will take a look at your guide and the gta4.net map.

Thanks for all the help so far.

4. Block a bridge with a bus or something, get on top of the bus, wait for 10+ vehicles to get stuck and start throwing grenades all over the place.

To blow 10 vehicles in 10 seconds you don't need to block a bridge or something. There's an easier way:

"Go to Autoeroticar in Alderney (if you don’t know where it is, check the link I provide). There will be around 10 vehicles in there, just make sure they're all close to each other (park them inside). Be sure there are at least 10, and once they’re all parked, throw some grenades to the middle of them. Once the grenades explode, use the RPG and fire one or two RPGs*. It should be enough to blow all the cars in less than 10 seconds.

*NOTE: If you use any cheat (like the cheat to get the RPG), this won't work."

Voilá. biggrin.gif

sharan_basava: You can change the traffic density in the options. Only in the PC version you can do that.

Achievements are obviously bugged. I earned a lot of achievements that later disappeared. For example I have liberty city minute but I dont have the achievement for finishing the game...

Hydro,
I saw this in your guide.
Liberty City (5) – All friends that you left alive like you more than 90%. [20]

You can have a total of 5 friends during the entire game. They are: Roman,
Little Jacob, Brucie, Packie and Dwayne. The first 4 you don’t have a choice,
they will become your friends during the main storyline missions, even if you
don't like them. However, you have to make a decision during the story, which
consists of killing either Playboy X or Dwayne.
If you choose to kill Dwayne,
obviously you don't need to make him like you more than 90%. However, if you
leave him alive,
you must make him like you more than 90% to get this one.

What if Roman dies (last mission) while liking you less than 90%.
Does that make it impossible to get this?

According to what you wrote, its only Dwayne vs. Playbox X that you have to keep one alive.

Also I went on all 5 helicopter tours, and my heli rides status is still 3 and at 7:21.
Is this stat for the tours, or times spent with Brucie?
I did not get the credit for going on all the tours. Nothing unlocked.

Lastly, Regarding the Melees Can you use melee weapons such as a bat?
They are considered melee weapons, are they not?
I saw the video on melees that was linked to in your guide.

It appears in this video that the person just engages in the fight.
He does not necessarily beat everyone to death. Is that correct?

Thanks,

Dan

Well I'm not sure about Roman, because no one ever asked that question lol, and tbh, I think very few people choose the ending where Roman dies. Anyway, I'll try to find more information about it, but I think that Roman doesn't count for that one. Not sure. If you happen to unlock the achievement even while Roman is dead, let me know, so I can update the guide.

Those helicopter rides statistics have nothing to do with the Helitours. It's just how many times you had fun with Brucie on his helicopter. Are you sure you did all the tours? There are 6 heliports, but only 5 tours. Start from the nearest one and to be sure that it will count, let the helicopter land and only quit when you're prompted to do so. Note which ones you've already done so you don't mess up and get confused. You probably skipped one without noticing.

Do you mean the "Finish Him" achievement? If yes, you cannot use weapon, just your hands. And you don't need to kill the ped you're beating, just knock him off with a finisher. Sometimes one hit is enough to let them down, but sometimes the peds are strong and you can perform two finishers to take them down.

I went thru all 5 tours in succession. Didn't skip one. Waited until he got out of the chopper to move on to the next. Still No Joy.
I will keep you updated on the friends mission achievement.

I have the map of where the people to meet are.
Some random characters you meet based on missions.
Is there any mapping that shows the times that the rest of them are at the given location?

EDIT: I was missing a third encounter with one ped. Once i got that, it triggered the last person to show up. Got all random characters.
Also I see that one ped is only at his location at certain times, so I assume that once the game decides you can meet a ped, he/she is there
all the time?

NOTE: Found a great way to search all locations quickly. BY HELICOPTER! Still shows the ped marker at a location if the ped is there, even
if you are in the air, so why waste time in traffic trying to go to each location to see if your ped is there?

1. Ask R*

2. I chose to kill him so can't answer that, probably because he doesn't want to talk to you anymore or help you cause your becoming so good friends with Patrick,I don't know.

3. You've missed one.

4. I did it with a shotgun.

5. probably not

6. no, but why would you? Those conversations are a must to have the first time.

7. google

8. No, hack? eh no.

Hey, guy. This is the first forum I've ever seen the "spoiler" button on the posting setup, and I missed that the first time too.
I guess an admin went over it. and did it for me.

I've used it in subsequent posts but all this spoiler stuff is still new to me.
As far as Playboy X and Dwayne, that was a quote from Hydro's guide. Didn't think about editing it.

In my guide I indicate that the section where you read that is a spoiler. No fault here. biggrin.gif

The following achievement needs to be explained with a bit more detail, and it

here only at the beginning of the mission "The Holland Play" for Playboy X.

You are correct Hydro. My bad. I admit it.

Spoilers under the black.

I had wondered if you could still get the achievement for all friends over 90% with Roman Dead if his like rating was below 90% at the time he died.

The answer is yes. You only have to have those ALIVE over 90%, no matter who they are, in order to make the achievement.

Otherwise that wouldn't make sense for R* to make that path then oif it leads to to a dead end.

I have to agree. I had One Man Army (Done it in the beautiful way - kill their butts in the helitours, get an heli and fly around LC, works like a charm in night)
I think there are more, But I can't really care less or more. They are just achievements (as much as they are damn fun to collect).

Upper post..
Roman and Dwayne doesn't count as friends needed if theyhell you know what.... We probably spoiled the game for him anyway.
