Cheats messing up your game

Recommended Posts

StingerSplash85

I put the "Max Fat" code in and now I wanna save but it says it may mess up my game. Will it? What will it do?

A few cheats will mess up your save - like the pedestrian codes, but for the most part the only noticable effect will be every time you save it will give you that warning from now on.

It won't corrupt your save but it will corrupt your save's gameplay. Trust me, I'm a victim suicidal.gif

 

I had to restart the game all over again cryani.gif

The word around here is that the only cheat code that causes any problems it the pedestrians riot code. When you enter that code it messes up at least one storyline mission that you have to complete if you want to get to the end, and even if you disable the code the mission will still be impossible to complete. The other codes are fine as far as I've heard but unless you really want something that you can only get through a cheat using them is a bit pointless and you have to put up with that warning screen every time you save your game from then on.

"Madd Dogg", it is a mission in Las Venturas.

This is true. Take2 confirmed that if you use any cheats it can bust your game at a later date.

I too was a victim of the Madd Dogg mission glitch, there is no way around it either, you have to start again. It may produce other glitches as well, such as removing 1 or 2 of the collectables so that you can't get 100% (this is nowhere near as frustrating as the Madd Dogg glitch though, at least you can complete the game!)

 

The best thing to do is not to use cheats, if you are going to, do not use any of the cheats that affect pedestrian behaviour (IE: ped riot, etc.). If you do use them, DO NOT SAVE after having used them EVEN IF YOU TURN IT OFF before you save. It can/will still f**k up your game. If you do use them turn the console off when you are done and restart from your last save.

 

I used the ped riot cheat to get past the 8 ball race at the stadium, if you need to use it for this, wait until you have completed all the missions, etc. and do this last.

the only cheat i used was the health/armor/money cheat. and everytime i'd save, there'd be a warning that it is not recommended to save tha game bec a cheat has been activated.

now i can't load my game. is it because of the cheat?

it says : 'loading failed!.. blah blah blah.. now restarting game'

help?

is there a way to recover my game?

That cheat shouldn't mess up your game I believe. If you're using a PS2 platform, it could be that your memory card is simply loosely inserted that's why the data can't be read thus the load failure message. As far as I know in the consoles platform, even the peds riot cheat can mess up only your gameplay but not corrupt your game data as not to be able to load it. Try loading other saved games if you'll get the same message.

Problems with cheats?

Hey, the solution is rather simple if you think of it hard enough, really.

Here and there I hear you say you don't want the annoying message popping up everytime you try to save a cheated game; or that it may not load and want to recover the game; etc.

 

Try this.

Save the same game in another filename.

Then activate the cheat... play on. play just to see the ending.

Then after much exploration, play for real.
