Hyman garage error


Recommended Posts

Im running the PC version and purchased the Hyman condo then filled all the garages with cars. When i was done i saved the game and now if i walk too close to one of the doors the game freezes when it tries to open. If coming out the door from the roof its the last garage on the left, past the bribe. All i can do is hit esc which drops the game down and brings up the MS error report in WinXP. It doesnt do this with any other doors, only that one. Since it has the max vehicles in it I can drive past it, but if i run by i freeze up. I tried to alt tab and alt esc but it wont budge.

Has anyone heard of this error? I checked the sticky up top but didnt see it listed. Its frustrating.

You haven't modded any vehicles, have you? It sounds like the game doesn't like one of the vehicles you've got stored in that particular garage, so when it tries to spawn it (i.e. when the door opens), you get a crash.

 

A potential work around is to download a trainer which has a garage editing option (see the Downloads Database pinned in VC PC Chat), and remove all the vehicles from the garage at fault. This should fix it up, assuming one of the vehicles is indeed the source of the problem.

I have no mods in the game or cheats. Inside that garage is a Infernus and a PCG600. I tried doing something else to resave it so i did a rampage but it froze up on the last kill. I saved to another slot but it still freezes. It appears to be a corrupt save, which is now the second time ill have to practically start this game over because of something stupid like this. The previous save doesnt have the last 60 packages or vigilante completed. I was able to play with no freezing on the other saves. Why is there no patch for this? Un-freakin real.... angry.gif

Usually when you use mods before in another save file and you load another one and saved simultaneously, it can still cause your game to keep crashing everytime because it affects the rest of your saves (like how the spreading of viruses work). A fresh installation should help. What could help too is if you send us the save file, and I'll check to see if it happens on my computer.

 

As for garage editing, LithJoe is a good trainer. But stop using it if it corrupts your save file, as well as car cheats or mods.

Hmm... with that in mind, starting a new game would probably help. But were you one out of a lot of people who have acceleration problems with cars when it goes scraping on the ground?

There have been bug reports of the Hyman condo messing up your game. The stadium and the spawning glitch does this as well. Maybe if you save in another area other than Downtown should help. If not, then I guess you didn't complete missions in the proper order prior to buying the condo. You must have gotten to the Western Island early and went and bought the condo or something.

 

 

Since it has the max vehicles in it I can drive past it, but if i run by i freeze up.

You weren't supposed to do that, but the max vehicles glitch shouldn't really affect the game itself. But I thought you said you only have 2 vehicles: Infernus & PCJ 600?

bigbang code?

I never had that happen to me.

I tried saving at the El Swanko house, then went back to Hyman and it still locked up. I didnt go to the other island early. I did a mission for Diaz and when I was done the radio said "all bridges are now open and the hurricane passed by."

The mission was called Phnom Penh '86.

As soon as i had access, i bought Hyman and took the chopper all over and grabbed the rooftop packages, then got the ground ones, then put cars/bikes in my garages. Ive never downloaded a mod for any GTA game so they are all original cars. I put above that i had 2 vehicles but if it holds 3 then it must have 3, because it wont open when i drive by. Maybe a Infernus and 2 PCG600s then. I lost track.

 

Why did you say I wasnt suppose to put the max vehicles in there? How come?

 

If i get this trainer with garage editing does it affect the 100%?

 

Here is my save file, can someone test this please? confused.gif

No, trainers won't really stop you from getting 100% (depends on what you use it for), using mods and cheats will.

 

When buying properties like the Hyman condo, even if you can actually buy it right away, I usually beat a couple of missions and other stuff before I buy them. Having said that, I am not sure if this bug happens if you buy the Hyman condo right away.

Because the game may retaliate against you by corrupting your save after you load it back, since you messed up the garage by putting too many vehicles in it all at once, perhaps confused.gif. You weren't supposed to breach the message when the game clearly states that the garage cannot fit in any more vehicles! lol... Overdoing it might cause the game to not load up the garage with the cars properly and thus, crashes your game. This doesn't happen to garages that don't have more than 2-3 vehicles, right?

 

In the mean time, I'm going to test to see if your save is deemed corrupted. But which save slot should I choose from? Oh, I see now...

Nah, because as soon as the vehicles explode, they'll be 'healed' by the garage. That's assuming they're damaged at all, because as far as I'm aware the vehicles spawn upon the garage door opening - meaning if you type in the code with the door closed, nothing will happen regardless.

 

 

No, trainers won't really stop you from getting 100% (depends on what you use it for), using mods and cheats will.

Again, nah, cheats never prevent one from obtaining 100% completion statistics unless a particular cheat renders a mission impossible to complete (a la the peds riot cheat in San Andreas).

 

In fact, the game doesn't retaliate or go out of its way (so to speak) to corrupt one's game if they've exceeded the limit for vehicles in a garage or whatever. At times it can occur due to unfortunate bugs, but it's certainly not Rockstar trying to punish an over-adventurous gamer. tounge.gif

Well, since writing this i had another bug adventure. I decided to redo all the stuff over so i used a previous save and redid the Diaz mission that opens the bridge, bought Hymans with 41 packages, and then collected them to 74. So i should have a sniper rifle, minigun and rocket launcher at Hymans. I go to the roof and the sniper rifle is there but the minigun and RL are not spawning! angry.gif

 

So I read here how this is a PS2 only bug if you buy the condos before having 70 packages. Not true, its obviously a PC problem too. sarcasm.gif

Time to do it again lol.

 

Good thing i have patience and this game is fun or else Id be using my VC CD as a frisbee out the back window. biggrin.gif

Just to let you know, I used your save file and LithJoe's trainer helped me to solve the bug having to do with the east-side garage door of the Hyman condo! It's working now. There seems to be a corrupted Freeway motorcycle in that garage so I just refreshed the memory using the Garage Editor, and rewrote it again by using a different vehicle (I think refreshing is all what was needed to do). So I am now leaving this up for you to do, it's not hard... I'll still try sending your fixed save file though when I have the time.

 

* The problem is probably because you either got the Freeway/Angel (don't remember exactly) from missions and it was considered to be corrupted (maybe some form of "Ghost bike"), or you used some form of car cheats and placed the motorcycle into the garage. Another factor is that you filled the garage with vehicles that breached the limiting capacity of the garage and/or you had some weird combination of vehicles inside it -> I think it is only some vehicles that causes the bug to occur. What was interesting is that the garage had only 1 vehicle inside, but yet the game complained that there's more than enough. You sure you didn't use any mods? Either way it looks like a rare bug and this never yet happened to me.

 

 

That's assuming they're damaged at all, because as far as I'm aware the vehicles spawn upon the garage door opening - meaning if you type in the code with the door closed, nothing will happen regardless.

I tried opening the garage door first, then I enabled the bigbang code. But the main reason why I was allowed to open up the garage was because it wasn't the corrupted garage I had actually opened. I think I should have opened up the corrupted garage instead, and immediatedly enable the bigbang code if the game allowed me the time to do so -> although I had stated above already what seems to be some sort of invisible vehicle inside of the garage that can't be destroyed. Maybe some vehicles that the game didn't expect for you to put inside like Caddy, Pizza Boy, Bus, Baggage, Sand King, Hotring Racer, Bloodring Banger, Deluxo, Cuban Hermes, Voodoo, Sabre Turbo, Helicopter, Tank!?

Ah yes i remember now grabbing a blue chopper bike off someone on the street and throwing it in there. Strange that the 1 bike would be corrupt. Ill have to make sure and not save any others like it.

Nope ive never used a mod in any game. I dont even know how to install them. Im always paranoid about ruining the game.

im not very computer savy. tounge.gif

Thanks for checking it out at least I know it was definitely the save and bike and not something wrong with my PC. If you said it worked fine on yours i would be worried.

Here's your fixed save file: http://gtasnp.com/download/1904

 

It appears you had an Admiral and a Freeway. But what's this "blue chopper bike" you're talking about? You mean an Angel bike that's near to Greasy Chopper, or a helicopter?

 

Can I get the save where your guns aren't spawning, I want to see this myself for some Vice City bug experience for PC! biggrin.gif

Thanks for the fix! Ill need to try and use that garage editor if it happens again.

 

By "chopper" i meant Freeway/Angel. biggrin.gif

 

Ive overwritten the weapons not spawning file. I loaded a save where i didnt own the condos and collected packages into the 70s and then bought Hyman and now they are all there.

It would suck if this Hyman Condo garage bug happened for the PS2/Xbox.

 

As for the Hyman Condo bug that causes your guns not to be spawned, maybe buying it prior to collecting the hidden packages would do the trick!? The thing is that the game needs to "see" that the Condo asset had been completely already before it gives you the guns. But what I am saying here maybe the total opposite -> however, this gun-spawning never ever happened to me before... mercie_blink.gif

As far as I know, its only a PS2 original version problem-- although I'm not positive on this... it just seems that most of the bugs that were fixed for the PC/xbox version were also fixed for the later PS2 versions.
