Help with passing 'Helicopter' mission!
Posted 12 June 2012 - 03:02 AM
Have played by all the rules, and have gone around and around with this thing. Have been in "SAVE N PLAY, Downloader/Uploader-a thousond times: to upload this: C:\Documents and Settings\david\My Documents\GTA Vice City User Files\GTAVCsf2.b
But, for some reason (And I'm hoping someone can tell me why! (?)) This won't work for me. It keeps throwing it out, and I refresh the page, and it takes me to an 'Error' message, that says: "Unable to determine file type. (1)" What am I doing wrong? Could it be that I've already played this, and that is why it's not working as it should, and maybe I have to go in and try 'Actually' doing the 'Helicopter' mission, and failing it intentionally, so as to give me a new number to 'Upload', as I was always under the impression, the mission for 'Helicopter' was: C:\Documents and Settings\david\My Documents\GTA Vice City User Files\GTAVCsf4.b
Instead of: C:\Documents and Settings\david\My Documents\GTA Vice City User Files\GTAVCsf2.b
Could this be why it 'SAVE N PLAY' won't work? Because I've already done: GTAVCsf2.b (?)
Please, will someone take the time and help me out here! As I really am trying; but no one seems to want to try an work with me here, to try an figure this out! I'd be so grateful, as I'm never gonna' fly that thing, around in there, for just '7 Minutes' and finish the mission. I'll be there for the next 'Twenty-Years'. I'm an old-codger, and not as gifted as some of you. But, like this game immensely! Don't wanta' do any other game... Just this one. They're all 'Pale' in comparison. Thanks, Derek

Did you modify the game in any way?

You're new to all this, but you should try looking a little around, and figure out the difference between posting a new reply or creating a new topic. Those two topics I linked you have been locked. Unfortunately, I hadn't got the chance to help you in those, because they've got locked before I got online.
Now, related to your problem, I don't think that the issue is at the Uploader N' Downloader, but at your save file. Where have you got the game from? Have you installed ANY kind of mods? This might cause the reason why the save file cannot be recognized. Also, you mentioned two save files; GTAVCsf2.b & GTAVCsf4.b. Have you tried uploading both? Do you get the same error for both save files?
I have one more suggestion for you. Try uploading it to box.net. It's a site where you can upload all kind of files & folders. You need an account, unfortunately, but you can create one by completing all the fields from this webpage.
After you've done that, I think (I'm really not sure about this) that you need to validate your account there. Check your E-mail and you should have a new E-mail from that site. Read it carefully and do what it says. You should be given a link to validate your account on box.net. Click on that one.
Now, you should see a page with all your already uploaded files and folders. As I said, I'm not sure about this, since I created my account there years ago, back in 2009. Since your account is new, and haven't uploaded anything, you won't see anything listed. Now, look around and you'll see a button called "Upload" which you'll need to click. Now, search for your save file. (C:\Documents and Settings\david\My Documents\GTA Vice City User Files\GTAVCsf2.b). Click Upload and wait. Now, you should see your first file uploaded there. Somewhere around it you'll see a word "Share" which hides the URL for the save file. Click on that one, and you'll be given a link to download the save game. Copy paste it on the forum.
That should be everything I know that might help you right now. Once more, remember to use the Add Reply or Fast Reply button at the bottom of this page, and NOT the New Topic or New Poll.

But, now need help with this below, and would be grateful for. TY Derek
Could anyone tell me how to load my own "MP3's", on my GTAVC game? (In layman terms!)
Posted 25 June 2012 - 11:53 PM
In case you happen to not hear anything, or to hear very difficulty because of the noise from the game, go to the main menu, then Options and at Audio Setup you'll find 3 options of audio settings. Turn the Music Volume & MP3 Volume Boost louder and the SFX Volume lower.
Tell me if you have any other issues.

Having problems finding the 'Folder' you speak of with, games etc., etc. Went into 'My Computer' and Opened the d: drive game, to access anything that could possibly have the games in, and all I get is: An audio folder, with all the sounds for the street etc., voices, etc., etc. And a Data 3 file... The only other folder I know of concerning the game is: In MY Documents, it's the regular folder that contains the 'GTAVC' mission segments. Where is this folder you speak of that with all the games on it? etc., etc. That I can 'Cut, Copy and Paste' MP3's to? Thanks, Derek

In case you do find the folder of Vice City, with all the folders listed above (and even more + other files) and you can't find the mp3 folder, simply make a new folder and renamed it "mp3" and move your MP3 files in there.
