Eleventh mission released! Check the main post for the link.

Play, enjoy, and give me feedback. Stay on guard for an (easy) hint that could lead John closer into finding who called that gang meeting.


Questionning Time:

1- Did you like the 'navigate through checkpoints' part of the mission?

I'm not sure, but hint in "Headshots at the Airport". Hint are the weapons that are spawning for just 1 objective at third blocade? (They're just appearing for second, then they're disappearing).

Definitly not. I am pretty sure they are simply the weapons dropped by the dead guys which disappear after the hiding of these dead actors or simply after their normal allowed time to pick them up. tounge.gif

Well, if you guys want to find an easy hint, try playing Going Out of Los Santos bonus mission. wink.gif

Before I release the final mission of chapter one:

-Would you prefer me to ask you your thoughts about the hints at the end of the chapters or at the real end of the story when it will be time to find out who organised that gang meeting?

-There is a color system for the hints: red, orange, green, purple. Red is for locked hint which means they are too late to find (generally due to the fact the chapter is ended.) Orange is for hints which were not found, but which you still have time to find. Green is for hints which were found. Purple is for hints I decided to give (there can only be one given hint per chapter.)

-As for the red (locked) hints, I will write them up in the main post after the mission pack is done. That is for you not to base your guesses on the not found hints, but on the ones you found.

-As for the purple (given) hints, would you prefer me to select a random one to give you or let you decide which one you want me to give?

-I gave a new look to the main post. Opinions?

-Yes, at the end of the chapter.

-Please don't lock the hint.

-I would prefer this, before the final mission, you give us all the hint and let us guess who start the meeting, it would be great.

-Random please.

-Do you even have to ask? I mean it look neat and better.

Well, here's what I have in my mind for the hints:

The ending is based on how many hints you've found. The more you find, the closer you are to the truth ending; the less you find, the further you are from the real ending.

That's just to make things more entertaining.


Anyway, what are your thoughts about the hints found so far?

Well I think it was Vladimir, maybe he was in the deal with Toreno. The 2 members in the long dead group were Toreno and Vladimir. I think the deal was Toreno and Vladimir, hmmm, maybe use John to do something for them, idk.

@Others

That's just my guess, don't think it's the true!

Interesting theory. icon14.gif Could be right, could be wrong.

I wonder what are the other players theories.

Last mission of the first chapter of the remake and redesign of The Chronicles of John Secronom: Gang War I has been published. Check the main post for the link. Play, enjoy, and give me feedback.

I added notes to almost all missions.

I updated the influence section.

I added a statistics section.


Out of the three contract options mentionned by Toreno, which one would you choose?
-The Tierra Robada and Bone County takeover contract from the Da Nang Boys;
-The internal war affairs contract of the Orange Grove Families in Los Santos;
-The triple contract from the San Fierro Rifa, the San Fierro Triads and the Da Nang Boys to take over San Fierro.



Chapter one is up and running on GTAGarage.com, as well as nineteen pictures.

I played the latest mission, here's my thoughts:



Those hints are quite cool, because they give a ton of suspense,
and improved the story a lot icon14.gif

About the contract, I'll choose the last one, it seems that a big fight is to come.

I played the other missions too, all that I have to say is:

all the mission are very funny bto play, cause there are many cutscnes revealing the storyline and lots of action, which motivate me to contniue playing this. You did a very good job in this series., keep it up!
I just think if you decrase the difficult in some missions it coyuld be better, but make as your wish.

+1 for adding more info, topiclooks better and we can know muchn more info about the story.

Good job sir, contniue like this and good luck icon14.gif
looking forward to the next chapter.

My Rating:

7.9/10

Thanks for playing the missions and for the rating.

And as I probably already said, the hints will affect the outcome of the story.

I believe the description speaks for itself. wink.gif

Takeover means turf war and internal war means internal problems (refer to the main game if you want more information on the Orange Grove Families internal problems.) For more specific information of what will happen in the missions, you'll have to wait and play. tounge.gif

For those who didn't notice yet: a contract equals a chapter.

Phew. I fell like I have just made one hell of an accomplishment.

First Chapter Feedback

Finishing your mission that is, the chapter is ridiculously hard at many points,
you must really tune down the difficulty.
But the story is very well directed, I remember playing missions 1-8 ages ago, back with V4.1.
You really changed them and improved some of the missions as far as I recall.
The animations are a turn off though, you only concentrate on hint and how to over-do the action and most of the story, just slips away.
To follow the story correctly you must be really focused on some moments and the unending waves of 2500HP enemies just consumes all of your focus.
One of the ways to tune down the difficulty is to limit the no-headshot 2500HP actors to bosses only.
Also, isn't the transmission you caught by a mistake at the airport a hint?


Rating

-Too many enemies.
-Lacking animations
+Improved version of past missions.
+Mistery
+Well directed plot
+Well done non-action gameplay.


Score

7 /10

The mission pack is good, better than I remembered it at first, but it makes you really struggle
and even ask yourself if you even wish to complete it.
Score could sky-rise if you make it more user-friendly, and make it look better, with more animations, a few more cutscenes
and always check twice and test the mission again and ask yourself what's there to improve.
Good luck! turn.gif


Also, I vote Tierra Robada, bone country - da nangs. wink.gif

Thanks for the rating, Kratos2000. About the difficulty, I was just testing and playing around with stuff to make it feel like a real war. Depending on what is the next chapter, it may or may not be the main factor/element of it. You are right: the transmission was a hint, but it's too late to be added to the found hints. Still, nice job finding it by yourself.
