Dillimore garage glitch, any way around?
Posted 19 January 2011 - 10:27 PM
I didn't notice this until some time after I had done & saved several more missions. Afterwards, I did the following to try to solve the issue:
1. I tried to get the garage to 'eat' the cars by jamming 2 motorcycles inside.
After saving into a fresh slot, the garage had 'eaten' only the motorcycles. The cars were still inside, unmovable.
2. I drove 2 more cars to the garage, and after the door opened I drove them far enough inside so that the door couldn't close.
I left the area and saved in a new slot. When CJ returned to Dillimore, the 2 cars were still inside the garage.
3. I tried to blow them up with CJ close enough so that the door wouldn't close.
The door closes immediately after one of the cars blows up. Of course, they are perfect when the door reopens!
I don't want to have to return to an earlier save. The farthest back I'll have to go will put me back at the Liquor Store mission, and I dread having to drive that quadbike again!
P.S. My specs are below, but I don't think this is a spec issue. SA has run perfectly for me.
I'm playing the 1st release (I bought it in 2005).
ATI Mobility Radeon 9700
2 Gigs Ram
Intel Pentium M processor 1.70 GHz

Thanks a lot! I'll rustle up one or the other and get to it!

The ZR-350 weighs 1400 kg. which is just within the lifting capacity.

OrionSR, The San Andreas Control Center did the trick!
I successfully deleted one of the cars; the garage is again usable and the remaining car is accessible.

OrionSR, you're right on all accounts: CJ can't hop over the cars in Dillimore (tried that dozens of times!), and the cars can't be towed because they're parked front in. I tried the Satchel charges, and the cars only catch fire. They barely move! ARGH!!
I'm assuming that San Andreas Control Center is a mod; gonna look it up after posting this.
GTA Phreak, thanks again for taking the time to respond.
I would wait if I thought the helicopter could hook on to the ZR-350, but I doubt the heli will be able to do it due to the way I parked the cars.
P.S. Before I posted this thread I searched extensively and found nothing; afterwards, I found several postings saying that if you put 2 cars in the Dillimore garage they often get stuck and become inaccessible. DOH!
