Two questions:

1) what's SPANK?
2) where are all the motorcycles?

1) I believe it is simply a fictional drug created by Rockstar.
2) There are no motorbikes in GTAIII. They were first introduced in Vice City.

Is there an in-game reason fpor them not being there? or was it that RTockstar didn't think it necessary to include them?

Well, there are a few possible reasons. One is that they simply did not think of motorcycles when developing the game.

I also believe that once Vice City was created and motorcycles existed, since GTAIII is supposed to be more recent than VC, I think it was said that motorcycles were banned from Liberty City in 1999 or 2000 (since Liberty City Stories takes place 1998 and has motorcycles, and GTAIII is 2001 and does not).

There is a storyline reason for the lack of motorbikes in the game. Quote from wikipedia -

QUOTE
Motorcycles are initially permitted in Liberty City. By GTA III, a citywide ban on the vehicle is imposed, explaining the absence of motorcycles in GTA III. The Maibatsu Corporation of America, known in GTA III for marketing the allegedly oversized Monstrosity SUV and is a staunch supporter for increased car use in Liberty City, is seen as a notable advocate and contributor to the ban, funding an organization dubbed "American Road Safety for Everyone" (ARSE) that has lobbied for the ban after "the successful banning of bicycles,"[5] and presenting a petition for the ban.

Hey I just signed up after reading these forums for 2 months or so and I just thought I'd ask...

The Purple Nines Glitch- Does it occur in PC version as well? And has there been a verified fix?

EDIT: Also I read somewhere that the hooker's will not respond in Australian versions of the game. My friend claims he can never get them to work yet with mine I can always get them in.

My GTA is the one with a (possible) red esperanto on the front and some guy holding a pedestrian hostage while holding a pistol and having a crosshair/sniperscope pointed at them.

The Purple Nines-glitch does occur on PC versions of the game. Two fixes are at Demarest's GTA3 and Vice City Game Fixes. One fix listed is instructions on preventing it when starting a new game, the other is a mod that will let you kill Red Jacks instead of Purple Nines if the glitch is affecting your game.

The Australian version of GTA3 did contain active hookers, and was banned because some dickhead considered that being able to waste them after using them was promoting sexual violence. The game was then re-released with the hookers disabled. This occured before the PC version of the game came out, and the censorship is also in the PC version. The PC game will not have active hookers if (have told Windows that) you are in Australia, and only early PS2 versions will have active hookers. The same also applies to GTAVC.

Update
Original post clarified with information from Demarest.

I am one hundred percent sure that I can get the hookers... Because I tried the Ho Train trick just last week... I also definitely bought this in Australia.

Hookers being disabled goes off of your Windows location. I'm in the US, but if I told Windows I was in Aus, I'd never get hookers either. Just like residents of Aus can tell their Windows they're not in Aus to get hookers anytime they want.

Thanks for the referal, rav0 smile.gif The approach before starting a new game works for PS2 as well by starting a new game WITHOUT your memory card plugged in.

Demarest:

So if you play a console based version, which has no windows anywhere near it, you have none of the obove restrictions, no matter where you reside ??.

If you play a console version it depends on your copy of the game.

Okay!

Finally get through paramedic lvl 12 and infinite run activate! But I didn't get any %. I'm still on 98% and I'm SURE I'm done everything needed to 100% (mission completed 73/73, if somebody gonna ask did I missed some of Kenji's missions)! Only thing different is that some Colombian gang members have M16. Is there a glitch or is it just sh*t from R*???

Only thing I can ask is whether you have checked the GTA III Miscellaneous & 100% Guide? It's like a detailed check list but covers a lot more of what needs to be done in GTA 3 to achieve that magic number.

Thanx saintdave!

Checked the list, and trust me, I'm done everything on it! Well maybe it doesn't matter if the % stays at 98, 'cause there won't be any benefits from 100%. But man, it still kinda sux sad.gif

EDIT: I play PS2 version.

The Ice Cream Truck can be hard to find. I've been playing GTA3 for a long time now, and I think I could count my encounters with it on my fingers. One trick I heard a good while ago (and it works) is to wait outside Catalina's mansion, and at some point during the day, it will go by. Worked like a charm the very first time.

And the BF Injection can be found in Hepburn Heights, at the place where you picked up Misty to take her to Joey (the mission name escapes me at the moment). You can only find it there after completing the mission 'Sayonara Salvatore', and between the hours of 1900 and 0500.

Best method for me to get the Mr. Whoopee is to get it during/after the mission I Scream, You Scream. Your meant to trigger a bomb in the van when the Leone's approach it but the game will also allow you to pass the mission if you get out of the van and kill them yourself. This way you still have the van and can do with it what you please.

The game isn't a download, you normally have to get it from a shop.
