Cheats screw up the game?

Recommended Posts

SonicChao

I can't find it in the cheats topic, and I can't find it in the forums ( sad.gif search is broken). I heard cheats screw up SA somewhere. Is it true? And what happens when you do use cheats? dontgetit.gif

I saw this on CheatCC:

 

 

You should be careful on using cheat codes too frequently until you complete the mission where you save Madd Dogg from jumping off the casino rooftop. The game will prevent you from completing this mission if codes have been used excessively; this number appears to be cheats being used 500 or more times. When this number has been exceeded, Madd Dogg will jump off the roof in a few seconds, making it impossible to save him.

 

Is that true? I'm about to get SA and want to know when you get to that mission. Thanks. biggrin.gif

Its in the third city, so it takes a while to get there. Also in Vice City, and maybe GTA3, if you ever used a cheat and then saved it wouldnt let you get 100%, it always stuck on 99% even if you did everything

That's actually a wide misconception - cheats will never prevent you from obtaining 100% completion statistics in any GTA game.

Which means you have some other oversite....I too have believed this about GTA VC and had thought the change was because of complaints for GTA SA but then again the poster I am quoting is Fuzzy Juzzy. So, alas I was misguided as well and to paraphrase quote a Moderator. Fuzzy Juzzy has spoken!

Oh you. blush.gif

 

If you (or anyone else) is interested in actually reaching that 100% completion statistic on PC Vice City, Dem's Ancestral Recall - available here - will read your saved game and display what's left for 100% completion. No such Code Tool exists for SA, unfortunately.

Yes that is true. I tried helping my cousin on that mission and the very same thing is happening to him.

 

And yes he did use cheats before doing that mission.
