The best guide you can get are the maps at

 

http://hem.bredband.net/708145

 

I've never seen that clean and accurate maps for mostly everything in the game.

 

Guides suck. Don't know the Brady one but the one I got in Spain sucks as much as your Brady's.

I think he refered to you.

You had 2 consecutive posts, and what he calls "an accident" is that unless you did not know that, you can edit your post to add more info (clicking the EDIT blue icon).

 

If you make a new post, the layout is more dirt, and it can be presumed as you wanting to bump a topic.

I know about the edit feature. But I aint gonna waste time going back and checking to see if someone posted after me. I saw a question that I knew an answer to so I answered it. Making things look pretty is just a total waste of time. Get the job done and do it fast. Then shoot anyone that complains about it.

Dont use guides Most guides are screwed up, better off getting one of the crappy newsagent ones cuz they are accturate.

I bought one of those EGM Guides for Vice City and it was excellent. Now when you compare that to the piece of crap that Bradygames dished out for San Andreas...well it's just sad. I often found myself on the net using player created guides for San An, and they were WAY better. Now when a guide made by the player outshines a guide made by professionals...again, sad. I say we boycott Bradygames or something until they do a better job and stop giving out crap! die2.gif[/green]

Just reading it again is reminding me of the nightmare finding the horseshoes really was bored.gif , I managed it with only Brady Games' descriptions.

 

I wonder how they can come up with those? Do they employ 11 year olds to write them?[/font]

11 year olds? My son can write better descriptions and produce better maps! More like 5-year olds!

Did anyone notice that it has two entries for "top of the pyramid"? I just noticed that on my second run through the game. Wonder why I didnt catch it the first time....

There is no contact information at all in the book or on the website.....hmmm....was that part of the plan?

There is contact info on the website. But in tiny small letters there is a link. I have now sent an email to Brady and will tell them about every single problem I have encountered.

 

In short: I have taken action.

Is there a site that has the correct locations for the horseshoes yet retains the strategy guide's numbering? I have the first 34 in the guide and I cant find 35. I just tried going to a bunch of sites but they all number them differently so I dont know which one I am looking for on those lists.

The first post in this topic should have links to Brady's own corrections.

They dont have corrections for the horseshoes, just the photo ops. I did find what I was looking for though. I'll find the link and put it here.

I don't know if this was said but in Ran Fa Li, the guide says the car you must steal is a Sabre! When in actuality, it's a Manana!

I failed the mission because of that. There were also several other missons with erros. Can't remember what though. That's the last time I ever buy a guide. It was actually the first time as well because SA is so huge I thought I would need extra help.

The gang tags were actually pretty good, except for the double '79' - but it was easily solvable, because the map was missing '81' I think, so that was the one that had been replaced by a 79, and you just had to match up the screenshots.

The Horseshoes are terrible - they say there's a Horseshoe 'Starfish Casino, on a ledge' but it isn't anywhere and there are no ledges that you can really climb onto.

The Oysters, I couldn't find very well at all.

The Photo-Ops have gotta be the biggest screw up. Surely ONE stupid person would have noticed that all the friggin' numbers, photos and locations are mixed up.

And when it says '...to locate each ____ precisely' it makes me want to laugh out loud and tear out my hair at the same time.

My 2-year-old niece could do a better job.

Those b*stards screwed us over even more by trying to make the book look thick and heavy and worth your money by using thicker paper.

They're nothing but a bunch of scammers.

Well Gday, I would just like to say that I too, have taken action.

 

Yesterday I was at my local EB games, where I roundhouse kicked a stand full of bradygames SA guides onto the floor.

 

I know that's kinda pathetic, but it felt good, i suggest you try it.

That's a great way to get banned from a shop. I sent Bradygames a letter explaining that I wasted my last tenner on their guide and now I'm bankrupt.

You do Karate? Me too. Not always advisable to go kicking things, though, even if they are crap books biggrin.gif

I picked up an XBOX/PC version and it was all glossy and all the misprints had been recitified. I wanted to tear it apart. But I didn't. I like that shop.

I think enough has been said about the errors. The book is full of them, but now you're all just repeating yourselves.

 

Regarding the corrections posted online by BradyGames:

 

Has anyone figured out how to get Adobe Reader to print out the screenshots page as TWO pages, instead of one? I keep getting these landscape printings of two pages side-by-side, when I want to print the left and right sides separately -- AND LARGER!!!

I have found spelling mistakes such as the guide spelling places and people wrong like the guide has a different spelling for ryder called rider.

They really screwed up on the photo ops and horseshoes though.

Im sorry if I sound stupid, but even though I havent read all the posts, and seeing as the first link doesnt work. What is exactly wrong with the Photo Ops and Horseshoes? Just before I start on them, thats all.

Apparently the photo ops in the guide are all about 10 meters to one side of where they actually are in the game.

 

I don't remember the horseshoe problem exactly, but I think their map only showed 99 or 100.

This is one of the main reasons why I don't try to many 100% runs for San Andreas because of Horse Shoes, Tags, etc. Very time consuming. confused.gif
