Hunter in cockpit-view mode (obtained from the Heli Hell challenge at the LV airport cargo area and flown to your Verdant Meadows airstrip hanger, then you save your game immediately afterward at your most convenient safe-house/save location)


You can also obtain it on Flying School all gold medals.

And explain what you mean with Cockpit View mode

the 4th mode on your vehicles...  the one where you're looking straight out the windshield, as opposed to the other external-cam options where you can see the vehicle you're in.  In the cockpit view mode you cannot see your vehicle.

practice, my friend, lots and lots of practice.

 

The Rhino also works pretty good for reaching high levels in a vigilante mission.

 

Steal the Rhino, lose your wanted level, then begin the vigilante mission.

 

I reccommend not shooting any of your targets with it, though, as this just draws heat and incurs more wanted level(s).  Just chase them down and crash into them.  Everything that touches a Rhino pretty much blows up on contact.  It takes longer to chase everything down with a rhino, however, as they are not that fast (which is why the Hunter is best - gets you to the target quicker), but you can chase them down most effectively in the rhino by anticipating the target's path and intercepting it head-on.

Yeah but if you're not careful you end up driving trough fire, which ironically, the Rhino is not immune to. Hunter is the best, but not in Cockpit View mode.

okay, probably something else you might not know (and I gamble a lot so I can tell you this works as I've done it)..

 

if you have say ten or twenty thousand bucks and want to get some sleep and make money in your game while doing so, go to a $50 slot machine at one of the casinos and play it.  think of a way to rig your bet button to stay depressed (I just use a weight, like an empty glass maybe, and perch it so it's leaning against something and with its weight on the button; I've also used an elastic band with some degree of success) and it will continually play the slot for you and it pays quite nicely over time.  by the time you wake up, you'll likely have doubled up at least.

 

heh heh

 

some of you addicts will be counting dollar signs instead of sheep.

 

a couple of pointers

 

fatten up before hand or you'll wither away sooner and not make as much.

 

also, if you haven't unlocked sin city yet then you likely have a wanted level.  the cops never enter the casino to bust you, so you can play until you drop dead and wake up back at allsaints with a stack of cash.

 

haha - you know you're a gamer when you can play it while you sleep!

In the PedGrp file in Data,you can see that there were supposed to be 10 gangs in GTA SA.The 3 extra gangs were probably the Italian mafia,the Russian mafia and the biker gang.They can be added in game with mods.

Spoiler

 

Cops were supposed to have their armored van in the beta version,but it was removed.It was included in one beta mission.

You can control the speed of the rotating cement mixer on the Cement Truck.

On pc? If so, how?
I know you can do it on PS2. I believe you use the same keys that are used to control the forklift forks (up and down on the D-pad I think).

Shawn Fonteno and Malay are cousins in real life, maybe that's why. CJ's face was modeled from Malay's facial features.

You can brake into the shower of the local police department and hit police officers with a purple dildo, just for fun...

-Tony the parrot is obviously a parody of Tony Montana when you listen to his lines.

 

Parody of Tommy Vercetti, those are his lines, and of course, he is a parody of Tony, too.

Try 2 and 8 on the num pad.
 
 

If you shoot the moon with a sniper rifle, the moon changes size multiple times each shot.
If you climb into an ambulance your health is replenished by 20-25%
If CJ is fat, you'll get a different cutscene for Black Project and also Green Goo. There's also another one for Amphibious Assault, if CJ hasn't increased his lung capacity, WuZi will tell CJ to practice swimming underwater.
You can workout at the start of the game Before the gyms are open. Head down to the beach gym in LS.
You can get an early pilots licence by hopping over the security hut at LS airport then fly a Shamal around LS airspace for about 20 mins. Don't leave LS though because you'll get a wanted level.
You can make CJ fat at the start of the game by drinking or eating about 200 drinks/snacks. Just find a vending machine for this.
There are about 7 different ways to complete Wrong Side of Tracks. 1. The traditional way with Big Smoke shooting 2. The Jetpack method 3. Physically jumping onto the train 4. The Seasparrow method 5. Jumping onto the train with the Sanchez. 6. Getting ahead of the train and sniping the train driver. 7. Can't remember, but look up OrionSR guide youtube.

Some of this should be obvious for anyone who have played the game for a few days, but I did not know all those methods of completing Wrong Side of the Tracks. :) Because the locomotives are indestructible I didn't think of trying to snipe the driver.
But using a Seasparrow? I think the game deletes any extra vehicles so I'm not sure how you can use a Seasparrow, unless you spawn one, and I've not seen any spawn codes for Seasparrow.

This may not be the right thread, but it seems no one knew this. The epsilon contract is just a way of telling the player how to advance his/her respect, sex appeal and
criminal rating.

Oh boy, it's been ages since I last played this game, so please bare with me.
Firstly, the game is full of messages about how to play the game, e.g. SEMI: Bend the rules, RLS dj,'Do something useful with your lives...' Chris says something about sleeping with 9(?) different partners a week. Sex appeal rises with every girlfriend you get 100%. Rake in a few points, then go on a successful date and your points will be saved at the checkpoint. Thinking along those lines, it's the impression I got going about my business ingame.

What epsilon contract? I have heard the word "epsilon" from random pedestrians or on the radio (I'm not sure which), but I didn't pick up what it was about.

Epsilon is the cult for the rich and famous in S.A. No matter how long you play this game you'll have unique conversations and experiences. Play some more, listen to the talkshow radio(WCTR) frequently; some of the characters you'll meet will also appear on this station, revealing details about themselves and the game.

That is a broad and misleading statement. The Epsilon Tract is for everyone, you are confusing it with a Real "religion" of the stars, but you never *meet* any of the NPCs who appear in the radio program.
There is also no representation in the game of the cult, or its location. Although some free minds wish there to be to the point they assume and assign them to otherwise normal NPC and farms..

I now remember hearing it mentioned on WCTR a long time ago. I don't listen to radio no more.
I suspect the Epsilon thing being a parody on the Scientology religion cult.

The talkshow host Billy Dexter keeps saying "kifflom" during an interview with Jack Howitzer. I regard him as a celebrity. The posh barber in Market too; not a celeb, but definitely not a nobody. I don't remember anyone from the eastside of LS saying it.

...but you never *meet* any of the NPCs who appear in the radio program.

Zero appears on 'Lonely Hearts', The Truth appears on Marvin Trill's talkshow. OG Loc and Big Smoke also appear on WCTR.

There is also no representation in the game of the cult, or its location.

True... although there is a weird picture in Madd Dog's mansion depicting some kind of occult seance.

Although some free minds wish there to be to the point they assume and assign them to otherwise normal NPC and farms..

Also true.

But not everything on WCTR pertains to the Epsilon Program. The only things that I've heard that pertain to the Epsilon Program are the actual commercial and Chris Formage's interview on Lazlow's show.

I found out a while ago that you can kill people with the swinging of punching bags in gyms. Just make them swing into the people in the gym and they'll either die or get knocked over depending on how hard the swing was.

If you hold down SHIFT (PC) while entering a car, CJ won't shut the door while entering. It can save time especially if you enter via passenger.
