Missing two snapshots

Recommended Posts

jnsg

I've been working on what I think is known as a Master Save, wherein I complete as many side-missions as possible before the mission Big Smoke. It has been an interesting exercise so far, but I have run into a snag. All I have left is to complete the San Fierro snapshot collections, but the last two aren't there.

These are, specifically, the one on the Pier 69 sign, and the one over the NRG-500 challenge.

I initially went through them and noticed these were missing; I went and did other missions, have saved and restarted the game several times and now that they are the only things left, they still aren't there.

I have tried taking snapshots of where they should be (by using screenshots from snapshot guides), even with the camera at full zoom (I think I read somewhere that this would help) but to no avail.

Has anyone run into this? Any advice? I'm on PC.

i have had a few problems with other snapshots back in my ps2 days. the only advice i can give you is try every angle possible. soon enough you'll get it.

hope this helps

The Pier 69 sign one is where it should be, perhaps you have already got it?

 

The NRG-500 challenge one is not where it says in the Brady Guide.

If you go to outside to the right side (north) the covered area where the bike is, and look above up above the roof it is there.

I had this problem on ps2 version, I saved the game in a different slot, Then the snapshot worked.

 

It was the snapshot next to Doherty, Where the crane/wreaking ball is..

Have you ever used SAMA (San Andreas Mission Analyzer)?

It'll confirm whether or not you've actually taken those Snapshots.

 

Also, I've done what you're attempting several times, and I've always called it the Ultimate Game Start; I've never heard it called the Master Save.

Aside from that, the only thing I haven't done yet is to achieve 'King of San Andreas'.

I have done everything that's possible prior to 'Big Smoke'

Many a times, the snapshot icon isn't viewable even through the camera, but it exists. Use SAMA, as Zoom suggested, to find out which snapshots have been left.

Then use this map to find the exact location and position of the snapshot.

OK, thanks for the suggestion to try SAMA. Although I'm pretty darn sure that these are the two I'm missing. But I will confirm. The actual map I was using was this one, in combination with the one you suggested, girishb. (It depends on whether I'm using the radar/in-game map or my actual in-game surroundings to find them.)

 

EDIT:

I got the last two! Thanks, smaisey, your comment about the NRG-500 challenge snapshot helped. After getting off to the side I realized it was much higher than I'd anticipated.

Zoom, thanks for the SAMA suggestion and link. Using that allowed me to find that the other missing one was not the Pier 69 one, but the one over the rocks next to Pier 69. I coulda sworn... ah well.

 

Also, Zoom, I think I came across the term "Master Save" from reading Orion_SR's 4 Star Survival Guide, which has a link to Flow_w0lF's Master Save File Guide.

 

Thanks again guys.

Well, everyone has their own name for it. wink.gif

If I were you, I’d come up my own unique name for it, just to be different.

 

I didn’t know that anyone else had done it until after I did it myself.

The first time I did it, I forget to go to a hooker prior to completing the Pimping Mission, so there was no way to increase my Prostitute Budget, it remained at $0.00 and couldn’t be changed.

My goal is always to complete everything that is possible prior to ‘Big Smoke’.

I’m just curious, how far have you gotten?

Well, in my original post I stated that all I had left were those two snapshots, but that's not quite true. I had forgotten about the Chiliad Challenge, which I still have left. Also, if you consider things that don't count toward percentage complete, I still have 15 Unique Stunts in restricted territory to do, as well as getting the girlfriends that are available at the beginning of the game (although I'm considering not bothering with them, since you can't date them in restricted areas and I read that for some reason they become very needy at this stage of the game).

Go through all snapshots again and check. I had this problem once because i thought that i took a snap on the airport watching tower, didn't see the marker by the way because i was far from it, but i had this text on screen that i took a snap and how much is left, nvm... The thing was that in this angle when i took that snap, i accidentally took another snap that was right behind the tower (the snapshot on the bridge), so i thought that it's complete and went for the other snaps. I felt like a moron when i found out that it was my mistake, not the game. And all that time that was wasted on searching invisible snapshot on the bridge was pointless... :D

Hope i helped you guys whose are trying to find that "invisible snap"! ;)

Are there planes you can take them across the river?

Also,if you're up for a challenge... You can get from Los Santons to Las Venturas on a bike, there's a tutorial on Youtube... You can squeeze in between the bridge barriers - and if you are quick maybe you can take the girls out to a date? It's going to be one hell of a challenge though.
