I've been looking for 2 oysters for the last hour. I've checked the locations multiple times. I need help. Thanks. I'm playing on Android.

There are 50 Oysters.
Oysters Map

Print it off, put it in a page protector.
Get a China Marker from an office supply store and cross them off. You can wipe the protector off and use the map the next time you play.
Tell us which two you are missing and then we might be able to help.

I am too on android and this problem has also happened to me. If you have a save in which you haven't collected any oyster then load that save and start collecting all the oysters again. This is much faster then checking the location of missing oyster again and again. If you can provide the link to the map which you are using and oyster number in that map then I may be able to help you.

If you get frustrated enough, then upload your save to gtasnp.com and I'll take a look at it. I can find your missing oyster hidden in the data of the pickup pool.

Thanks for the help, I was using that map to find the oysters. I'll try one more time before I make a new safe or upload my save. Thanks again.

Dark52 Oyster Map: #2 and #3 (oh, you've got a map, still 2 and 3 though)

 

These two oysters are in the LS docks region. They are the two southeastern-most oysters.

It was 2 and 3? I didn't see them when I went back and checked. Oh well, thanks for the help. I appreciate it.

You're welcome. I ended up pasting your entire pickup pool into a PC save so I could view the pickups with an editor. Just to be sure, I had CJ go collect them; 2 of 50 collected (I didn't copy your stats or anything) and no more oysters in the save - so time to trash this one.

 

For anyone with hex skills, search and replace "DE C0" with "" to clean out the extra unicode stuff that PC doesn't use. And don't forget to fix the checksum.

Very good job OrionSR. I have read SA save format in gtamodding.com. There the offsets are 0x00 while when I open my save with HxD the offsets starts from 000000. Also the name of the save is not in text-string. I do not know how can I develop those hex editing skills.

Oh yeah, I keep forgetting. The mobile version seems to read the save name directly from the GXT string. I remember mentioning save name editing recently, but I thought it was in relation to a PC save. But you are right. We shouldn't get into the technical details in this forum. Discussing strategies is one thing, but details on how to do it is likely to get the topic moved. If you are interest in this stuff then let's continue the conversation in PM until we settle on a project and then start a new topic in the modding forums. I'm off to bed though.

 

One tip for mobile hex editing; the mobile saves are full of extra bytes [DE CO]. If you can ignore these and adjust the offsets accordingly then the PC/PS2 documentation will make a lot more sense.
