Bike, Car, Boat, Air schools. How they're done!

Recommended Posts

NickySantoro

Hi there. I've searched this thread and I haven�t found an aswer to this question...

 

Here it goes: I've got GOLD in all missions in BOAT and BIKE School, but still not all vehicles appear!

 

In BIKE SCHOOL Only NGR-500 and the Freeway (GOLD and BRONZE) show up and in BOAT SCHOOL only Marquis and Squaloo (BRONZE and SILVER) are avaliable!

 

I've come from all directions but it just doesn't seem to load!

 

I'm sending a couple of pics!

Can someone help me here?

 

Thanks a lot

 

PS: This is about the PC version of GTA:SA.

At some point, you must hold a silver medal with all tests complete. Only then will the silver award item appear. That is how it works for the bronze prize as well. Only for the gold prize vehicle must you hold ALL gold medals.

 

It is probably too late to do anything about your situation, as I'm sure you've already saved.

 

For future reference, do not finish any school without holding at least one bronze and one silver medal. You can repeat the tests later for gold, but holding those lesser medals after passing the school ensures the lesser prize vehicles. This is usually a problem only for the two easy schools: bike & boat.

Yes, but... If I have ALL GOLD in boat school shouldn't I have the JETMAX waiting for me outside?

 

I thought that when I got GOLD in all missions in a school, all three vehicles would be unlocked...

Sometimes (most of the time) not all of the vehicles will spawn. Try approaching from different directions.

How ironic...

You all seem to have so much difficulties on the jump and stoppie thing.

I got gold on it from the first time, I believe I must have been very lucky then biggrin.gif.

More love for PC gamers.

 

Boat School

 

 

Basic Seamanship

 

• Time Limit: none

• Vehicle: Coastguard

• Difficulty: 1/10

• Gold Medal: Stop between the buoys within 10 seconds and don’t hit anything.

 

Use the third-person camera view. Follow the directions on screen.

 

I think an PC update is a vfery good idea here as the keyboard controls often require some quite different techniques. However there seems to have been no notice taken of comments made on page 9/10 of this thread about the above test. The time limit for Gold in this test on PC is well under ten seconds.

 

Can your post please be updated to reflect this?

 

The suggested techniques for achieving this time are to aim to stop only just inside the buoyed area and (the one I did) to turn as you enter the stopping area and hit a buoy head on. There is no need to worry about position of stopping.

 

And 'burn & Lap' at only 6/10 difficulty...?!! I don't think so, and nor do most people who posted on the subject here...

Sorry, but I don't care.

 

I rated it assuming one would follow the directions I gave and be on the PC. Do it the way I suggest, and it's not a hard test. Feel free to do it some other way that makes it harder, but I'm not obligated to edit my post to reflect your performance.

I think the thing with jump and stoppie is your existing bike skill. The first time I tried it in my first savegame, I aced it. 100%, right away. Then again, I had spent the majority of my time on bikes and had my skill maxed long before I got to bike school.

 

I think this also answers the wheelie question for jump and stoppie. I think if you have too low of a bike skill, the NRG will wheelie off the line, wheras having a high bike skill allows greater control of this.

 

Oh, and Burn & Lap and City Slicking are evil.

Where do you find these schools?

When they become available there will be a Red "S" on your in-game map. I think the first school that appears is driving school is San Fierro, after the mission "deconstruction." The boat school is in Bayside, Flight school is after "verdant meadows" mission, and bike school is south of LV stadium.

This is just a small trick for the City Slicking part of Driving school, which I was having trouble with until I found a "shortcut".

 

I have an alternate route compared to the one presented in this map (curtesy of Onanist):

http://img254.imageshack.us/my.php?image=snapshots3ye.jpg

 

Continue stright ahead, (don't turn at A), until you reach the top of the road (just east of point 33), then turn right, and go across the green area on your left (there is an opening in the walls on the south and east side so you can cross without damaging the car. Then drive to the marker, do a quick turn, and go back the same way. This route allows you to maintain a higher speed, and shaves several seconds (3-5) of your time. I managed to get gold on the second attempt with a couple of seconds to spare following this route. smile.gif

Alley OOP

 

• Time Limit: 0:05

• Vehicle: Banshee

• Difficulty: 8/10

• Gold Medal: Barrel roll off a ramp, over two cars, landing squarely on your tires and stopping perfectly at the end—without damaging your car.

 

Use the third-person camera view. Your approach is paramount. Accelerate hard throughout. Use the outside lines of the hood or trunk to align yourself with the edge of the ramp. You need to hit the ramp with a slight angle toward its middle.

 

The instant you leave the ramp, release the acceleration and steer hard into the roll. This spins the car around faster, increasing the chance of landing on the tires.

 

You won’t have much opportunity to straighten out at the end. If your approach wasn’t perfect, it will show in your landing. But it’s not an impossible test, once you figure out how to hit the ramp and turn while airborne.

 

I've been working on Alley Oop for half an hour - I've gotten gold the first time through the game, but I fluked a silver this time, but could never get better.

 

Read your post, went back in to the game, Gold first try.

 

I used the CLOSE 3rd person view, rather than the further one I am normally on, and I think the steering helped, too...

 

thanks...

Cerby,

 

Good speech and all. But refering to the flight school test (Parachuting). I try to land right smack on it. Either I'm more blind than a bat or I got one messed up game. Game seems to be fine. I am sure I land right smack in the middle when I do that.

I got gold for everything, except that one. Any recommendations? What do I do. I know the Flight School is a 100% Completion requirement. rahkstar2.gif

"Jump and Stoppie: Difficulty 6/5" biggrin.gifbiggrin.gifbiggrin.gifbiggrin.gifbiggrin.gif

How true!

 

"work the 'square button' (brake) and hope for the best."

 

Not needed to do a stoppie.

All you need to do is land on a 45 degree angle and hold forward to keep the back wheel off the ground. The 'stoppie' doesn't imply that you need to brake.

 

Kudos on the guide! Well done!

 

I think it should be a sticky. There is far too much garbage to weed through when searching for tips on these topics.

Notice the word 'stoppie' it means that you have to stop!

 

stoppie - pie = stop = put the break on!

Whats the "Pie" part mean ?

 

Do you have to be eating a Pie whilst doing it?

 

Must you be muff diving in some "Hair Pie"?

 

Hmmm! cool.gif
