Posted 01 August 2002 - 11:50 PM Edited by GTAKid667, 05 January 2014 - 07:04 PM.


Here's a little FAQ to help you find info more easily without having to waste your time posting the question and waiting around for a reply. If anyone thinks of anything that should be added, go ahead and post it as a replay to this. I'll try to edit the first post here every so often to keep everything in one spot.What was changed as a result of 9.11?
Not as much as most people seem to think.  All that was edited were the police car colors, and a few lines of text/ped dialouge. Note, I heard this straight from Adam Davidson, lead analyst at Rockstar NY, so it is fact, and not my opinion.

Where is the "full-wing dodo", and can i fly it or shoot it down?
The "Full-wing dodo" can be seen flying around the north side of Portland and the mountains of Shoreside.  It cannot be flown, and is generally more of a scenery object.  For all practical purposes it's not solid, however a well-placed rocket will blow it up, giving you an automatic 4 wanted stars.

Where's the Maibatsu Monstrosity?
Only in the commercials on the in-game radio i'm afraid.  This was done to poke fun at the SUV craze, and is not a real vehicle in the game.

How do I fly the regular Dodo?
Try
this guide.  Alltho it was made for the PS2 version, it will still be useful.  You'll just have to figure out the difference between the buttons, which isn't that hard.

Where can I find Mr. Whoopee?!
The best place to find the elusive ice cream truck is in the area around the Columbian's mansion.  It's a rather random thing, so you may have to drive around the area for a while before it shows up.  Also, if you do enough firefighter missions, you'll run across one eventually.  Then again, you could also just keep the one from that El Burro mission. wink.gif

How do I beat *insert mission name here*?
Well, there are just too many missions to go over here.  Try gamefaqs.com, or the Gameplay Help board a few clicks up from this one.

My player keeps walking in circles, what gives?
Chances are, you're using a Logitech Wingman gamepad.  If so, make sure the little throttle slider thingy is set right in the center.  Or if you're using a different gamepad, make sure all the axis' are centered properly.

I use WindowsXP, and the text in game is covered by boxes!
Download the XP patch mentioned in the readme.

Why can't I load a saved game?
Well, if you're using warez, that's the problem.  If not, it may be beause you are logged onto your computer under a different name, your savegame is corrupted, or you may have changed some settings since you last played with that save.  There can also be conflicts with other app's running in the background, such as virus scanners.  Check
here for more info, straight from Take2's site.

How do I do a drive-by shooting?
First, you'll need to get yourself an uzi.  Once you have the uzi, get in a car and hit the "look left" or look right" button and start shooting.  The buttons change according to how you setup your keys, but they are "Q" and "E" by default.

Where is the fourth island?
There is no real fourth island.  The closest thing to it would be the area commonly referred to as "Ghost Town", which in reality is nothing more than the part used in the opening cutscene.  If you want to see it anyway, just fly a dodo north, over the mountains in SSV, and try to follow the road on the map which appears to go through the blocked off tunnels.  However, even if you get there, you will find that none of the buildings or ground there are solid.  Also, if you continue flying north, you will see a few of the programmers names embeded in the map.  They don't do anything special, they're pretty much the designer's way of signing their work. wink.gif

How do I get some action from the hookers?
First, get yourself pretty much any car that's not a convertible, police car, ambulance, or taxi.  Then just pull up next to one of them, wait for them to get in, and drive to a secluded area.

How do I get the gangs to like me again?
Well, to put it simply, you don't.  The only way to do so involves editing the games data files.

Who is, and where can i find a character named Darkel?"
Darkel is a character who was originally intended to give you the Rampage missions.  In the end, the game's makers felt that they liked the skull-icon system better, and removed him from the game.  The model and graphics files are still in the game however,as well as the actor who portrayed him's name in the credits.  I think the graphics are just there because the makers didn't feel like wasting time to remove them.  The voice credits are still there because the actor still did the work, regardless of the fact the character was cut later.

in response to jew, the gangs can like you again, but you have to edit the pedstats, or download it from someone.  D4rkwind has it, but he's never on this board anymore :(

Actually, the gangs don't hate you after a little tweaking. I got all of them to turn the other way when I got in front of them. It's rather odd.

And, yes, you kill Maria in the ending credits.

u can get a mr. whoopee i scream:) truck by doing
vigilante or firefighter missions
eventually you will have to stop a criminal in such a truck
or put out a fire on the same
i found no other way to get it for the imp/exp garage in portland exept from the specific mission involving it
btw i think it doesnt appear by itself as a random vehicle?
also do the trashmasters appear only on a specific day of the week coz i have some problems with this?

Well thats just great! Normally you do get the satisfaction of finding out yourself, but then someone forgets to make a *spoiler* signs and ruins the game for those who havn't finsihed it.

And will ANY hooker get into your car? Or do they have to be standing still.
All the hookers in my game just walk on by without even looking.
Nothing like in real life :pp

Just one more thing while this FAQ is still unlocked,  PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE search the forum before you go starting new topics asking something, that could've been brought up in the past, just saves less sh*t for the moderators to clean up later, and will make the people of the board alot nicer towards you, as some of the older (july and previous) members have seen these topics brought up several friggin times, and it isnt fun having to repeat yourself just to tell one person what they could've found searching the forum. Remember, the less times people see a topic thats constantly re-curring, generally the happier they're gonna be, and in the long run, will help you out more, because as I said, the more the see the topic, the less inclined you are to help someone with the problem they're having with that subject, and eventually people stop caring, and you wont have any help at all.

It's not true that there's nothing in the stadium.
If you look really close (or fly over the stadium) then you'll see that it sez: "C*cksuckers"

actually, i believe u can get hookers with convertables.  the only difference is once u get to an isolated area, they get out immediatly.  u get ur health and they take the money that it would have taken.

Portland, 8balls bomb shop near the crusher: it has ignite use, ride slowly alongside the pavement, til your car gets jacked, press the shoot button to activate the bomb, next it'll explode with the jacker inside!

SI: rig the car in 8balls bombshop again near to the garage where u did multistorey mayhem. Activate it again with the shoot button and get the hell outta there, coz it has a timer.

SSV: rig the car for the last time at 8balls bombshop, it's in the industrial area across the police station, this one works with a remote control, press the shoot button, get out and walk away, blow it by using your controller, press the shoot button again.

Good luck.

Theres a new col file that lets you enter the stadium, and it says COCKS.

If you remember your ChatterBox correctly, someone called in and said LIBERTY CITY COCKS RULE!

The Cocks are the Football Team.

He wasn't gay.  Or maybe he was.

R* is perverted :)

WELL SURE LITTLE BOY!
Here it is, Straight from the Misc Mods section at GTA3hq.com
Note: Much Respect to cpmusick, now if you'd only explain what the OTHER numbers meant.

Code Sample
Mod Name: Gang Respect Mod
         (manual install)
Creator:  cpmusick (www.gta3hq.com)

About: This mod will stop all of the gangs from shooting at you while you're driving around.

Instructions:
Go to the "[gta3dir]\data" folder
Open "pedstats.dat" with any text editor (such as Notepad)
Look at where it says "STAT_GANG[#] (going 1 through 7)
Under column "D" where it has 20, change that to 80
Do it for all seven gangs
Here's an example of how it looks:

    A               B     C      D   E   F   G   H     I     J
STAT_GANG1           17.0  7.5    80  65  10  40  1.0   1.0   6
STAT_GANG2           17.0  7.5    80  65  10  40  1.0   1.0   14
STAT_GANG3           17.0  7.5    80  65  10  40  1.0   1.0   6
STAT_GANG4           17.0  7.5    80  65  10  40  1.0   1.0   6
STAT_GANG5           17.0  7.5    80  65  10  40  1.0   1.0   14
STAT_GANG6           17.0  7.5    80  65  10  40  1.0   1.0   6
STAT_GANG7           17.0  7.5    80  65  10  40  1.0   1.0   6

That's it!

If you have any questions\problem, post a message in the forums at www.gta3hq.com or

You can't be driving a cop car or a really trashed car and you have to at least have SOME money (not much). Pull up next to her. They are much easier to find at night. She should walk up to your vehicle, "negotiate", and then get in.
