Things have been going slow around here lately so once I am done with Investigating myths in GTA 4 I will investigate some in TBoGT and TLaD. To see if there is any kind of difference.

I have been a myth investigator since GTA III,and I will be glad to investigate some of these myths as well(I will investigate them in TLAD and TBOGT,since I'm doing these storylines,and I can bring some backup in TLAD (: ).

I will try to post some pictures.I'm using the PC edition,and:

You do not need Fraps to take pictures,just set your windows 7 theme to windows classic,and the printscreens won't come out black.Then,if you don't know how to do printscreens,watch a tutorial somewhere.


Anyway,I am going to edit this post soon enough,after my investigation is done.


Sprunk Factory Myth Investigation - TBOGT:
Sprunk Factory,07:36AM -
I arrived at the alderney Sprunk Factory,after a long trip from Algonquin...

user posted image

I parked quietly,and some Honkers security guard got me from behind.He took my Advanced MG,and I was forced to overpower him and kill him with a Desert Eagle I carried on my jacket pocket.So,moved onto the tunnels,which were already spooky themselves.

user posted image

I saw a strange hole in the tunnel wall,which led me directly inside the Sprunk Factory.It was pretty wrecked.I took a look around and went to the second floor,when I almost had a heart attack.A door was moving by itself.I got so spooked I used a shotgun on the door,which led to the outside.I took the door and found nothing though.

user posted image

In here,I climbed up some more floors,always trying to explore them as much as I could,but my heart was beating really quick,since I was hearing footsteps and breathing,which seemed to come from behind me.That made me kind of paranoid,always looking backwards.

user posted image

I almost stepped onto the very abyss,a 3 story fall,but I kept walking around.I realized the rest of the stairs were broken and inaccessible,so I did this:

user posted image

I broke the window with gunshots,to check out the rooftop.It had nothing but a nice view of alderney,which I didn't enjoy for long.

user posted image

Made quite a jump from the top of some ''building connection'' to a staircase,which led me to the ground.I left,but I still hope to come back there.

COLLECTED EVIDENCE - One door opening by itself,which led to the ground level. Loud breathing noises. Footsteps. Honkers security guards apparently didn't wanted to let me go in there.


MYTH PLAUSIBLE - There is no apparent visible ghost on the sprunk factory,but footsteps and breathing can be heard,which all point to a living thing.However,most of the living things couldn't open a door and vanish in 2 seconds. (Needs more investigation).

Next myth I'm investigating - ALL of the alderney sunken ships.

EDIT:
Some small typing errors were fixed,and fixed the problem of posting 2 equal pictures

Myth name: "Haunted Abandoned Hospital".

Investigators: AlexGTAGamer, Niko and two of Dwayne's boys.

What happened: I took a taxi over to Colony Island and passed the time until 21:00pm by listening to some pedestrain conversations.

After quite a while waiting for the time to eventually come I phoned Dwayne to lend me his boys again for another myth investigation. They soon showed up in a red PMP. Weapons in hands, we entered the hospital.

As soon as we turned the first corner to walk down the hall in the hospital a homeless man came at me. I blasted him with my shotgun as I thought he was hostile but he just wanted some money. The shotgun blast scared anyone who was inside the hospital at the time (one person being a hooker in the backroom) and made them run away. It was just Niko and his boys left now.

As we camped in the backroom the rain began to fall. Time dragged on and I eventually got bored, so I went around the place shooting out all of the lights and blowing up all of the gas canisters. Every now and again I'd run up and down the main hall looking in all of the other rooms to see if I could see anything. Nothing.

I was wearing headphones for this investigation so I could hear everything. All I heard was an ambulance siren on the road outside, some seagulls squawking, the sound of water lapping outside, the sound of rain falling, and the occational bang from the harbour nearby.

The time hit 3:00am and Niko sent Dwayne's boys away, I remained in the hospital all night until 6:00am. When the sun rose I knew the investigation was over.

Strange things that happened/were heard: N/A.

Myth Confirmed/Plausible/Busted: If there is a ghost in the hospital, it wasn't there when I investigated.

Myth (for me) Busted.

Myth Investigators,

I was thinking about Myths and Multiplayer gaming. Is it more likely for Rockstar to hide a wild monster or ghost on their own servers than in the game folder (where they know someone would find it)

Just an idea (I'm not into the multiplayer side of the game, so If this a load of bollocks just kick me)

Actually there have been many reports of having more of a likelyhood of experiencing this stuff while playing online. I have actually done one investigation with another person but I will need to do more to find out, and I am almost done with the 7th time beating the story, so I will be updating the thread and MITSUB soon!

Its not about whenever it true or not. Its about the hunt. Here is - by definition - a few more myths

Myth:

Man in window

Description

If you go to the run down house, close to the old casino (its the house where the sultan xs is) go to the front windows. At night, you may see a shadow that walks past the window. This happened for me at 23:56 at Friday. It was a clear night.


Evidence

No evidence atm. I saw this shadow while I was passing by to get the sultan.


Myth:

Painful scream

Description

One time when I was in the house where you do the drugdeal I could hear some weird screams. It sounds like someone is being tortured. I could also see blood drip down on the floor.

Evidence:

I have recorded it. Unfortunately it dissapeared from my memory stick when i was about to upload it.

I have also heard that you must stand still for roughly 90 minutes in the sprunk factory in order to get a 30% chance to encounter a ghost. The camera will change after you've stood still for about 2 minutes without pressing any button at all. Not even start. Then you may hear a scream and niko dies. Someone should try this.

I would appreciate if you are apart of the myth investigation to please help out by imputting your ivestigation reports, whether it is with other people or not. I will also be adding an Online investigation crew section for those who are trying to find other myth investigators. Will have my next investigation report up soon! Thanks for reading --- CrowBarZ

Myth Haunted Museum
Description Quite a investigation if you ask me, there is some activity in the museum. I began early in the morning (GTA time) at 06:00 am investigating the museum. Nothing really happened until 08:40 when I heard a faint scream coming from the second floor, I went up to see what it was but there was nothing so I figured it came from outside. The time was 12:18 am and I heard the scream again from the same place, the scream was a grown man scream like he was being tortured. The scream happened again but this time I found out where it came from, it came from location where Niko, Johnny, and Luis were in the storyline during a diamond deal. I then heard footsteps going up the steps and then the back door was opened and then closed, I quickly rushed to the door and kept on hearding footsteps going slow towards me. It was clear I wasn't alone in the museum, something didn't want me out but wanted me to know he/she was there. I spent the rest of the night hearing noises.
Evidence Male screaming multiple times.
Footsteps heard going towards me.
Door opens then closes by itself.

I need a PC multiplayer buddy too :>

I'll be investigating the Sprunk Factory tonight.

Sprunk Factory Report:

I went to the location of the abandoned Sprunk factory because I heard some rumors about terrible things that had happened in there. When I went in everything checked out okay(top to bottom), but I did hear some odd sounds.

Evidence:
-Footsteps below me
-Things dropping(on my way out)

Hey, CrowbarZ, add me in on the investigator list, will ya? I've been investigating some myths, too. And one I've found that is not listed is the Spy Helicopter myth. It's a stationary floating helicopter at the only bridge connecting the thrid and second city (forget the name). It sits there until the player goes close to it, it then tries to fly off.

I've followed it and it tried to go higher then me but gave up. Then, if sits stationary again. I managed to make the heli go down into the water, and the cop bailed out. I noticed something strange, the cop did not move. Eventually, he drowned.

I think this is just Rockstar humor, refering to goverment spy helicopters. What do you think?

Anyways, I would LOVE to be on the investigator list and investigate all these myths! I will try to film all these (I only have a video camera, not a Dazzle recorder or something.) But I will definately report back the results!!

On to investigate Ratman.... Will be back tomorrow. cool.gif

[If anybody would like the video I captured for proof, just tell me!]

Myth being investigated: Ratman
(I did a day time search and a night time search)

I arrived at the scene with my black Landstalker at around 7:00 game time. It was quite bright, but as I took my first few steps into the subway, bright it was not. I was spooked, because most subways in the game were brighter than this! I had no real idea on what was going on here. I kept moving along though, down lower and lower. There were a lot of steps, and along the way I saw something. Icky, brown/gold-ish goop on the ground.

At first, it looked like coins. It really did, but on closer inspection it was obviously some sort of goop. It looked almost like blood, but gold/brown coloured. It was quite... disturbing. Finally, I got to the tracks. The subway tracks. There was a little platform, before you stepped onto the tracks. I inspected the ground, looking for more of this goop stuff. There was more, a lot more, actually. It surprised me. What would make this goop? I really never saw this any place else but here. (But I don't normally stare at the ground, so maybe it's everywhere. For now, this is some sort of evidence.) I looked around, but saw no one. Heard nothing. I turned to leave, but saw another path under the staircase to the outside. I rushed down here excited, but still, no one! The room I entered was filled with lockers... I went back up, dissapointed. Maybe the night time search would give me something.

Night time search: As I crept back into the sewers, I found 3 guys.... just chillin'. In a dark-ass subway place. But, really, it wasn't cool. They looked like they had mascara on! (Well, 2 of them did. One guy had sunglasses on. In the dark.) Anyways, I continued down, but I spooked them. One guy took off running and jumped down something. As I explored, I saw blood. And the goop sh*t. But, I couldnt help but notice the flickering lights. Were the wires bit.... by Ratman? Who knows. As I explored more, I ended the whole thing without a sound or sight from Ratman.

Evidence: Goop, seemingly like blood, but a brownish colour to it. Flickering lights, could be due to Ratman biting them. Blood on walls.

Myth: Busted. Sure, I had evidence, but, no sights OR sounds of Ratman. He's not here.

I am back with two new investigation reports.

Myth: RATMAN

Description: I showed up at the tunnel exit with an NRG 900 at 21:30. It was dusk and I knew spending a whole night in the tunnels searching for ratman would call for a small vehicle to transport me. I road around through the tunnel systems for a while. Slowly driving around scanning for anything suspicious. I would occansionally find myself in the largest part of the subway system, where I would take out my sniper and scan for any signs of ratman. I found some amazing views of L.C. traversing the tunnel systems. Yet I still saw no sign of ratman. Just the hobos that frequently spend time down in the tunnels. I did not have enough time to explore the tunnel systems fully. I will need to go back later.

Evidence: N/A


Myth: Haunted Museum

Description: I showed up in my black Landstalker at the usual investigation time (around 17:00-19:00) and began to search. I turned my volume up on my T.V. so I could hear every noise. I also made sure not to fire any of my standard myth investigating arsenal (Pistol, shotgun, and sniper) so I wouldn't taint any evidence. Such as outside pedestrian screaming. I walked around the bottom of the museam for a little bit. Checking out the rooms and watching the upstairs balcony closely. It was around 00:30 that I walked to the upstairs. I would push objects and such off their stands to see if I would get a response and...nothing happened. I kept walking around and still didn't find anything. My time to do the night investigation was almost over. So I decided to look around downstairs again. Of course, nothing happened, it was a very fun place to do an investigation nonetheless, will have to again sometime.

Evidence: N/A



Hope you guys enjoyed reading. I am scheduling a mass investigation of the Liberty City whale for those of you who want to investigate online with other people. Just check the Original Post to get signed up, and I will give you more information about it soon. --- CrowBarZ

i have to say this only it's very likely just my paranoia but i have played some games with the MP open ender game option and found other players running around my single player game [red dead rdemption, mercenaries 2 and a coupla other games i can't rem ONLY ON THE XBOX360]. i tried talking to them but they seemed to be just doing their own thing and in a coupla places screwed up my games;
mercs 2 comes to mind when i wanted to keep the big oil corp onside but then they went to war against me and i couldn't figure out why. i wanted to keep them sweet until i'd got all the achievements done with them then destroy their smarmy asses but i was also allied to the venezuelan rebels [ a tricky situation at best but they seemed to be held apart by the venezuelan gov forces so i used that gap to exploit my advancemnt in the game]. i only noticed the 'invader' cos they had red labels [gametags] above them and i was screaming over the mike "oi!! who invited you to this game?" this was early days when i first got an xbox360 so obv i wasn't aware i prob had my options set to "allow other players to join game" or something along those lines. but this 'invader' had attacked the oil corps' forces and so i was at war with them too!

my point is, it is possible that someone could be wandering around your GTAIV world just curious. how they do it? i don't know. but some ppl are incredibly clever when it comes to network invasion coding so popping onto another player's gameworld is possibly very easy. why do it? for some, to just be a nuisance. for others? just plain curiosity. i once spent an hour with some kid playing halo co-op and he insisted i see something incredible... it was an hole in the gameworld and he was so excited about it and that he had found it. to me? i was just.. so what? big deal. you waste my time showing me this? kid, i'm too old and been into games too long to find this particularly interesting[obv i was more diplomatic]. so if this kid found a crack in a halo world so fascinating [i'm not a halo fan so poss that's why i found it boring] it's likely many ppl would find wandering another person's personal gameworld interesting? possibly that could explain some strange occurences?

or:-

i think most games now are written for either xbox or ps3 first then recoded for the pc. since it seems a lot harder to access consoles' game folders and files it's likely ghosts in the machine/game engine could easily be placed there by the devs. we know devs have been doing weird stuff to their games since game designing began. i mean, 'meccano' - not a game, more like lego, a box of bits and pieces with screws and bolts for building a crane or helicopter, etc back in the 50s and 60s [i think] - released their 'kits' with one single piece missing, a screw, or bolt, to encourage the child/user to try and figure out how to get around the problem.
so i believe it's highly likely devs would create 'ratman' if it was considered early in the design stage then dropped and one dev, working late, alone, might just throw in the code, a sound file, image file, deep in a mostly unused part of the game environment where the rest of the team won't notice. it's a human thing. we like to play weird games on each other.

but i'm very intrigued by all this. and i do often wander around the underground just to escape cops then find myself going deeper and deeper as curiosity takes a hold.
this is a very long post. i'll shut up now.

Myth - Beechwood City Growler

Investigators - Luis Lopez, Tony 'Tony' Prince

We arrived in the general vicinity of Beechwood around about tea time but there was no time for tea. Our specialised transport a golf caddy tip top with eclectric charge. We scoured the streets listening for any growls, though this was hindered somewhat by tony's insistence on listening to LCHC, I think he's having a mid-life crisis.

Nothing untoward I turned off onto a non existent junction almost sending us into the sea. I managed to regain control of the caddy and we ambled down to the beach.

We came upon a childs' pushchair, which was a concern...

user posted image

We approached the gentlemen nearby and enquired about a growler 'Reptilian Death Ray' was their reply, this may or may not have something to do with anything to do with nothing.

Tony suggested we check the bay for a missing child, I was beyond caring but what the hell it was a warm night.

user posted image

I was impressed that Tony could actually swim... in a suit. We found no child which was no surprise and swimming got boring fast. Returned to the pushchair and gave it a nudge, woah!!!! The pushchair seemed to posess supernatural properties and was animated, gliding around in it's own sub dimension.

Evidence : No evidence of growler but recommend follow up investigation into crazy pushchair.
