The Ultimate Game Start, Download it here!

Question

zmoonchild

This was originally posted on March 20, 2007

 

UPDATED on February 15, 2015 >> Videos updated

This is v1 (the original version) without any mods, patches, or upgrades.

NO CHEATS

This is a completely legitimate game.

 

download it here

 

This version is currently 13.37% complete up the mission “In The Beginning”

 

Also, C.J. has never been Wasted or Busted.

 

Anything that can be done prior to ALL of the story missions has been completed, and I mean everything, well, short of becoming ‘King of San Andreas’.

This was done just to see how many things could be completed immediately after the game began, and before the mission “Big Smoke”

 

This saved-game starts on:

Wednesday at 06:30

which is the same day and time that Tenpenny and Pulaski throw C.J. into the alley at the beginning of the game.

Technically it actually starts at 6:28, because after the game is first loaded up, there’s 2 seconds of visual fade-in before you can actually see the time display. I did this intentionally by saving the game on a Wednesday at 00:28.

 

The game is saved at the Jefferson Safe house, which is less than 2 blocks from that same alley.

 

I tried to keep Safehouse visits to a minimum; there are 17 total.

 

C.J. has the following:

1) $999,999,999 (I used the Inside Track Betting trick to get it that high - no cheats or mods.)

2) Armor at 150

3) Pilot Ranking of “Ace”

4) Minigun, and all of the best weapons

The Minigun, M4, SMG, and Combat Shotgun all have 10,000 + rounds each, so ammo totals don't show.

5) Pilots License has been obtained and he has access to all airports, but he still hasn't taken Pilot School yet.

6) Luck at 1000

7) Health increased to maximum: 150

8) Full Muscle

9) C.J. is wearing the white shorts from the Chiliad Challenge, and is marked up with tattoos from both San Fierro and Las Ventures. He also has full muscles.

10) All 6 available Safehouses have been purchased.

11) 4 vehicles for Exports & Imports (three for the 1st list) have been stored in the Doherty garage in San Fierro: a Patriot, Cheetah, Infernus, and a Euros (for the 3rd list)

12) Total Respect has increased enough so that C.J. can run a 6-man gang

 

The following side-missions have been completed:

1) Firefighter Mission

2) Paramedic Mission

3) Taxi Mission

4) Pimping Mission

5) Burglary Mission

6) Vigilante Mission

7) The Roboi's Food Mart Courier Mission in Los Santos

8) The Hippy Shopper Courier Mission in San Fierro

9) The Burger Shot Courier Mission in Las Venturas

10) Weapon Skill Levels are all at ‘Hitman’ (I did a lot of shooting - no cheats or mods)

 

Also, the following Challenges have been completed:

1) BMX Challenge

2) Chiliad Challenge, Scotch Bonnet

3) Chiliad Challenge, Birdseye Winder

4) Chiliad Challenge, Cobra Run

5) NRG-500 Challenge

 

And, all of the Stadium Events have been completed:

1) 8-Track

2) Blood Ring

3) Kickstart

4) Dirt Track

 

In addition to all of that:

1) 100 out of 100 Tags have been sprayed

2) 50 out of 50 Snapshots have been taken

3) 50 out of 50 Oysters have been collected

4) 50 out of 50 Horseshoes have been collected

5) 70 out of 70 Unique Jumps found

6) 69 out of 70 Unique Jumps completed

 

All skills have been maxed out:

1) Flying Skill

2) Bike Skill

3) Cycling Skill

4) Gambling Skill, ‘Whale’ status, he can borrow up to $1,000,000

5) Driving Skill (I did a lot of driving - no cheats or mods)

 

There are no failed missions.

The ‘Mission Attempts’ total is higher than the ‘Missions Passed’ total due to missions such as the Chiliad Challenge which offsets both of these totals.

 

Fast Food places are already open, due to a disastrous date with Michelle.

 

The original audio message that C.J. says as he approaches Grove is still there. I used other missions to keep from triggering it.

I moved vehicles into the Johnson house garage, and sprayed painted the Gang Tag that’s on the base of the overpass bridge on Grove Street during those missions.

 

All garages contain fast and/or rare vehicles, including a Seasparrow that’s been stored on top of the Mulholland Safe house garage. They were obtained during various Vigilante missions without cheats; Euros, Hotknife, etc.

I used the Vigilante trick to get special vehicles to spawn - no cheats or mods.

 

All iinformation icons are still in place.

 

C.J. has the following weapons:

1.Brass Knuckles

2.Knife

3.Desert Eagle

4.SMG (MP5)

5.M4

6.Combat Shotgun

7.Sniper Rifle

8.Minigun

9.Tear Gas

10.Camera

11.Silver Vibrator

12.Parachute

 

Here are other various Stats:

Criminal Ranking:

OG, 211023

 

Player:

Armor: 150

Pilot Ranking: Ace

Times Drowned: 0

Number of Hospital Visits: 0

Total number of Girlfriends: 3

Luck: 1000

 

Crimes:

Times Busted: 0

 

Achievements:

Progress with Michelle 10.00%

Progress with Barbara 15.00%

Progress with Katie 15.00%

Unique Jumps found: 70 out of 70

Unique Jumps done: 69 out of 70

Tags Sprayed: 100 out of 100

Snapshots taken: 50 out of 50

Oyster Collected: 50 out of 50

Horseshoes collected: 50 out of 50

 

Mission:

Mission Attempts: 17

Missions Passed: 15

 

Misc:

Progress Made: 13.37%

Safehouse Visits: 17

 

I wanted to thank OrionSR for letting me know that additional Vigilante Missions would not increase the Mission Attempts total; it helped with this Ultimate Starter game.

Video Guide - How to do 4-Star missions at the very beginning of the game

This Video Guide was created on July 30, 2008, and updated on February 15, 2015

 

I created these videos myself to show people how do missions (and other things) in 4-Star Wanted Areas.

The videos were are not actually of the Ultimate Game Start itself, but they do demonstrate how the missions were completed and what tactics I used.

 

I figured out all of the tactics on my own… the only exception being the LV Jump from Red County into Las Venturas on the NRG-500… that was created by OrionSR and rubregg… I really appreciate their help on that. OrionSR also told me that it was possible to jump a vehicle from Santa Maria Beach into Flint County at the Flint Intersection.

Only 13 percent for almost everything done except for the missions... it means that 83 percent is got from missions... wait, he couldn't do the races! That explains it! how much percentage does all the races give then?

Just like the Story Missions, each race give 0.534759358% Game Progress... which is usually rounded to about .53%

If you run that save through hmvartak's save converter it should run just fine on the Steam version (Steam = v3, but works with v2 saves).

2 Missions Attempts up only?

This can't be right... Burglary Mission gives you 1 Attempt but no Mission passed.

How did you manage with only 2? it should be 3 Missions Attempts up.

2 from Chiliad and 1 from Burglary Mission.
