does anyone know if brady games released a re-print of the guide? i ask because i bought the guide then read here that there were misprints, but after downloading the pdf's that they released as a correction i compared them with my guide and it's exactly the same! so either the pdf's are still wrong or they corrected the actual guide. i live in UK btw, i wondered if maybe the UK version was different or sumthin?

Man, I just bought the guide a couple days ago, because I finally saved enough to get it (yes, I'm poor) and wanted something easier to refer to than the internet.

 

I noticed that the the Ds store seems to be off, its right next to Victim but the map has it at least a block away. And a couple of the tags were off so far. I haven't gotten into photo ops yet so I know what I'm in for. I also noticed a lot of misprints, like duplicated sentences and mislabled pictures. Guess I should have looked at it a little more closely before committing to it.

 

At least you all are here!

devil.gif I posted these elsewhere but I hope they help as far as having a somewhat better description of where the missing horseshoes are.

 

Other Glaring Horseshoe Oversites

 

*#3- Emerald Isle, Frogs Pawn Shop- There is no "Frog's Pawn shop" the horseshoe is on the red-roof of a one story building to the right of the gym.

 

*#15- Las Ventura Airport, underneath a staircase in the back of the airport. There is no staircase, the map places it correctly but it is simply next to an airport wall.

 

*#24- Starfish Casino- On top of the roof.- Ok this was just confusing, as the horseshoe is not actually on or near the Starfish Casino it is (east) across the street on top of a Cluckin Bell.

 

*#25- Las Venturas Airport, on top of the roof.- No! Much like #28 it sits on the runway where the map places it, there is no building or roof.

 

*26- The Camels Toe, on top of the pyramid. - Ack! #2 is on top of the pyramid!! This one is on the big raised awning that surrounds the pyramid! (Land a Helicopter on the Sphinxs head and walk around if you dont have the rocket pack).

 

*28- Las Venturas Airport, hidden from view by some bushes and other objects.- Third times a charm. There are no bushes, there are no other objects, it simply sits on the north-western part of the runway, just left of the floating Armor.

 

*39- Starfish Casino, on a ledge. -Once again very confusing, Once again not on or near the Casino rather it is (east) on an interior ledge above an enclosed clothing store parking lot.(I believe it was Zip).

 

*41- Emerald Isle, hidden inside a small garage complex. Not so much an oversight as a crappy description, being that there is a multi-storied (Emerald Isle) car park you will more likely search (for hours) before you realise it is (west) across the street, in a nook beside the carwash thingy.

 

*42- Emerald Isle, In the southwest corner outside of the carpark next to a fenced in stairway.- Placed correctly, but there is no fenced in stairway, it is south between the gym and "Froggys Pawn shop".

 

*43- Come-A-Lot, slightly hidden from view in the little alcove. WTF! The picture shows Carl standing next to an alcove across from the Starfish Casino! It is on one of the small fenced in porches, in between the buidings east of Come-A-Lot. There are stairs leading up to the roof, jump down to it.

 

*46- Old Venturas Strip, inside the "O" of Hotel.- It is in front of the "O" in CASINO, thank you very much!

 

*49-Whitewood Estates, in the back garden on this house on the edge of town. # 49 is in front of the long commercial building just south of the house on the edge of town. The building has a ramp placed on its north and south ends and is indeed on the edge of town just kind of floating in the air in front of that one story commercial builing with the ramps behind it.

Thanks dude, you freakin rule.

 

I took a brain break from my class work and was looking for the horse shoes, and came back to my class work more stressed and pissed off than before I turned my PS2 on, which is simply not right. The last thing I was looking for was the non-existent Pawn Shop. Frickin Brady. This guide has been a complete waste of money, aside from the tags and oysters, which I had no problem with.

*throws self at you in a hug* THANK YOU! Now I can find a few more. I agree with everything that has been said. I am getting royally p*ssed off with that b*ggered guide. Although I got this other magazine which is even worse, which makes the Brady guide seem quite good. I noticed the cut-off hint box, as well. For the Horseshoes I tried matching the pictures up to the location which worked best. But I had a lot of difficulty because I had already collected lots of Oysters, Photo Ops etc. so I also had to see which I had already taken. I am getting extremely confused. I haven't tried the Gang Tags yet... sarcasm.gif

I own the Brady Games GTA SA guide, and I understand that the Horseshoes and The Photo Ops are wrong, but are the Spray Tags and Oysters wrong aswell?

While on the brady game guide subject, who knows where oyster #25 realy is?  I have suffered through the other misprints with the tags and oysters, but #25 has become my white whale.

 

Edit:  Never mind, I'm stupid.  The oyster was right in front of my face.  This always happens with the last one I look for.

Go to "Pirates in Men's Pants" on the LV strip, and look near the skull statue in the northeast area of the pool. I don't know if the SAM map #25 oyster matches the Brady #25, but probably.

I am new to this site and what I have to say you guys will not believe. I am in Paramedic School right now and our book was published by BRADY. It is full of contradictions, incorrect information and plenty of things that if done to people will kill them.

 

For those that want to know how laughable some of the stuff in this book is, go to your local fire/EMS department and ask to see a "Combi-Tube" (not everyone carries them so they may or may not know what you're talking about) once they show it to you, ask them to point out where the mask is.

 

My most favorite of all though, is on showing the placement of the "Combi-Tube" it shows it as being in the esophogaus (the throat) and labels it as being in the trachea (windpipe) and on the next page, it has the reverse.

 

So it isnt just Brady Games that is having problems, that whole company is f*cked up.

Does any one know where the photo op for the SAVE THE WHALE is?

angry.gif

And the one at the dry dock is not even there too!

On both of them, look up in the air about 30 feet. The one on the dry dock is directly over where it should be. The one at the save the whales sign (which is not in the game) is directly over your head if you line up your shot exactly like the screen shot in the book. (The sign isnt in the game, but the buildings all match "Doms clothing" is what you're looking for. It is west of Zero's shop and a bit south.)

That is SHOCKING that they can get away with printing these things!!! Does no one proof read any more? I would get shot if i left mistake like that in the literature our company produces - how hard is it to read thru something and mark down if it is wrong??!! Are you going to complain? I hope so, dont fancy a paramedic getting confused after reading the book and shoving a tube up my arse instead of down my throat! alien.gifsneaky2.gifnervous.gif
