I will totally be attempting this again in hopes for a faster time, but it will have to wait until my new laptop arrives. Maybe i'll be able to record it as well, but no promises there. tounge2.gif

Well I see you want to go beyond your limits biggrin.gif I will make my own attempt soon, one with Ultimate Starter Save File and one without.

Decided to take my run. I played with Ultimate Starter Save File and here is the result:

- played on PC version
- played non-stop
- 4 times mission failed
- skipped all cutscenes possible
- didn't save a single time
- visited safehouse 3 times for equipment
- busted not a single time
- wasted 3 times
- didn't cheat
- Staunton lift bridge slowed me down 3 times
- sealed some missions

I failed 3 times in missions:

- 2x in a row in Paparazzi Purge (running downstairs to the boat blew me right into water suicidal.gif )
- 1x in Bait, because the stupid AI Colombians get off the car right before the secluded place on the road...
- 1x in Waka-Gashira Wipeout, well I wasn't fast enough and my car exploded...

I visited Staunton safehouse 3 times, everytime I get wasted in mission, I was more lucky with the police, not a single time busted.

Missions I have sealed:

Luigi: Pump-Action Pimp, The Fuzz Ball
Joey: Dead Skunk in the Trunk, The Getaway

Asuka: Two-faced Tanner
Kenji: Kanbu Bust-Out, Grand Theft Auto, Deal Steal, Shima, Smack Down
Ray: Gone Fishing, Plaster Blaster, Marked Man

Donald: Escort Service, Decoy, Love's Disappaerance


And here's my time:

02:07:03

I think it's a good time since I haven't played this game about half a year or so, 6 days passed in my savefile.

00:40:59 - Passed Last Request
01:30:32 - Passed Grand Theft Aero
02:07:03 - Passed The Exchange

I stopped the timer after the heli falls down in the lake and screen fades off.

And here are times for each part of Liberty City:

Portland - 00:40:59
Staunton Island - 00:49:33
Shoreside Vale - 00:36:30


Last thing:
I was very surprised after the subtitles fades off and Claude spawned in Wichita Gardens, there were still mission icons for Ray and Donald, is it normal?

Of course it's normal. Donald's and Ray's missions, as well as Marty's, El Burro's, King Courtney's and D-Ice's phone missions, don't get locked off by completing "The Exchange". So you could return to complete them at your will.

Congratulations on your magnificent result, man! You certainly got the grip of the game. I guess you are a professional player, just like me. You prove yourself worthy of this title.

I was going to do my second Speed Run today, seeing as I got myself 5 hours of free time, but unfortunately once I started playing and got to Salvatore's missions, my Left Analog Stick on the Joypad broke, so I couldn't carry on. Although it was possible to use the D-pad, the Left Analog Stick got jammed, so I couldn't coordinate any movements.

So now I will first have to find a replacement for my broken Joypad before I can do another Speed Run.

Too bad, so sad. cryani.gif

I really do not consider myself as a professional player (3x wasted, 4x mission failed) there are many players better than me. I like to enjoy the game's story first, then do all side-stuff and then do some challenges like this for fun.

To your problem: Why not play on PC? I may try my second run on PS2 aswell but I'm sure I will have a horrible time. biggrin.gif

The keyboard is not really my style, to be honest. I get my fingers in a bundle pretty soon when moving around with WASD keys. Especially in a vehicle. Much easier to do with a D-pad or Left Analog Stick, and with X and square left for acceleration and break. Gives me "hand freedom". I guess you catch my drift...

I personally find it easier to play with the Joypad than Keyboard/Mouse. It's a personal taste, really.

Games like Grand Theft Auto are the best on PC for me, I know what you mean, it's a personal taste, I like fighting and racing games to play with controller.

Well, it appears to be quite the opposite for me. Even on PC, I play with the 'Classic' controls scheme and the Joypad rather than the 'Standart' controls scheme and the Keyboard & Mouse.

I might try it though, once I have time again. I won't die from trying. At least on this one... Plus, it might be a good opportunity to upgrade my Keyboard & Mouse playing skills!

I might try to do it and post results, but considering I completed game only once it'll probably take me quite few attemps tounge.gif .

Just try... Even if you fail, you won't die from trying. At least not on this one, eh?

So, I tried to do it, but I gave up confused.gif . I skipped all unnecessary cutscenes and after about 2:40 of real time I was doing Espresso to go - and that's where I failed miserably- I failed 5 times that mission mad.gif so I lost my patience and turned it off confused.gif . I guess speedruns are not very good thing for beginners..I plan to complete game again soon ( not a speedrun, regular 100%, since I haven't done it yet) and then I will certainly try it again it's good challenge.

Yeah if an average player gets 100% without cheats or mods, he would have enough skills to describe himself as good player I think. Keep up numberman! biggrin.gif

Today I realised the only mission I can't do first try is The Exchange. I'm really gonna have to do a speed run these holidays.

Although it may seem hard, guys, keep trying and you will eventually succeed. Even I myself didn't pass the Speed Run on my first attempt - just so you may not know that...

I did it! happy.gif on 2nd attempt unfortunatelly I failed mission 4times and died once due my stupid mistake facedesk.gif during The Exchange. My time is 2:48 which is pretty bad, but next time I'll try to make it better biggrin.gif . But I can't provide proof, because my laptop restarted during ending credits, so I don't know if that counts confused.gif .

That's why I prefer PS2. No surprises like that ever happen! tounge2.gif

P.S. Whatever the time, you succeeded anyway! So, let me be the first to congratulate you! Have some cookie.gif ! Hope to see more!

Absolutely sure about that??
'Cause I played GTA SA on PS2 once and after Changing the hairstyle to Afro the game crashed and the console stopped, had to restart it. Anything can crash, Windows PC, Macintosh, Linux, XBOX, XBOBX360, PS, PS2, PS3, etc...
It's just the Console/Computer that is more resistant to crashes.

I like both PS2 and PC version of GTA III, except that I am still new to playing with Joypads.

Anyway, congratulate.

Also, Arsen, how much times did you save during your run?
Since I never save and as far as I could go was Grand Theft Aero.
Car kept flipping not letting me get out and I blew up devil.gif !

Hehe thanks, my laptop tends to restart quite often after long time gaming, fortunately it was in the end of my speedrun smile.gif .

So I died in The Exchange only (I died almost in few other missions too, but I just get lucky) I rushed that mission maybe a bit too much I thought I can make it to that place with Maria without many kills almost had it, but ....About mission fails :1. Paparazzi Purge- that cost me a bit time, 2.Waka Gashira Wipe-out- I just wasn't fast enough, so I let it fail because collecting weapons would cost me quite a lot time. 3.S.A.M-again stupid mistake which professional players like you and Arsen would not do tounge.gif I tried to use technique which was used in this speedrun: I don't know if it's faster, but 2nd attempt I did it with good old way tounge.gif ,4. Espresso to go suicidal.gif I don't know why, but I had always very bad luck with this mission

I'll tell you: even I refrain from using a Dodo in "S.A.M". Instead, I do it "on the ground". You know what I mean.

That is a risky technique overall. I wouldn't mind using it, but if I failed, I'd had to restart the Speed Run overall, so I decided to protect myself from such a risk.

If you look at that video he has certainly impressive flying skill, just the way he did Espresso 2 go is incredible. Yeah I took maybe too much risk, but I was lucky too, if I failed then I wouldn't risk that much turn.gif . Still my time is pretty bad, but these days I'm getting into GTA III much more than before so in future I'll go for better time tounge.gif . Do you mind telling me how long have you been playing or how many times have you completed GTA III. From your posts you seems to be very experienced player.

You'll never know when everything can go wrong... Never you do, believe me. Even I find myself failing an incredibly easy mission on occasions. The good thing is that happens seldom enough.
