Strange things that happen in game

Recommended Posts

Cronyne

OH, How could I not recall this.

 

Often when using the .357, sometimes when firing it rapidly, Tommy will sort of hesitate. The gun with stay about chest level and he refuses to shoot for quite a while, and stands there struggling to move. Until I stop aiming.

Probably the annoying 'super cop' which can open your door 5 seconds after you've driven off! Another strange thing is when you steal a SWAT van and the guys are still in it. Once you stop, they get out and open fire on the truck with you in it. If you steal a Police car/SWAT/Cheetah with the guys in it, they fall to the floor, but if you steal a taxi, the guy will just get out without falling over and try to get his car back. If your car is jacked from the driver's side, you always fall to the ground. Try it against the golfers at Leaf Links.

 

P.I.G. security guards that attack cops and seemingly innocent people is another strange thing I've seen.

 

Another annoyance is the army 'gang' that spawn on the road outside Fort Baxter. They will shoot at you simply for driving past there, no stars or anything.

 

This one wasn't on Vice City but GTA3, I was outside the police station in Portland, and I end up busted, but I somehow managed to drive up to the top of the hill (towards Saint Marks) before the screen darkened and it respawned me.

 

Ever noticed that only one type of pedestrian exits the Coach? It's always the guy with the white shirt. It's the same guy who ends up 'hit' by the car, where the driver gets out, puts his arms up and runs over to the body.

 

Yesterday I was near the Hyman Condo evading cops with 3 stars. I went up the top of the building to get the Maverick. Got in it, and it went up to 4 stars for 'stealing' it.

 

Why do cops spawn inside the Vercetti mansion but no other building, like the Ocean View Hotel?

 

I did a fire truck mission ages ago, and I had about 2 and a half minutes of time after completing a level. I ran out of time waiting for it to give me another fire to put out. I went all through Downtown, Little Haiti, Havana and everywhere else on the west island and got nothing.

 

Part of Leaf Links golf course is apparently in Downtown, even if you haven't unlocked the other side yet. Part of Little Havana is considered Escobar International too, near the laundrette. The reverse happens outside the building near the airport itself (the building with the carpark that has a single Sentinel XS in it), and also near the army barracks.

 

If you start a taxi mission in Starfish Island (or let someone run from Little Havana over the bridge), missions default to the beach or Vice Point area, even if you came from Little Havana. Same thing happens when you start a mission in 'Vice City', but I haven't thoroughly tested that yet.

 

Sometimes a person waiting outside Sunshine Autos in Little Havana wants a taxi to... Sunshine Autos in Little Havana. It gives you a minute to do this one. If you get the same job from Downtown, you only get a 30 second time extension. The former is another placement bug, which renders the southern end (near the silos) as Viceport.

Wow! That was a huge post, man. What u were telling about silos? What is it?

Yesterday when I was playing, the virtual R* plane gone crazy. It wasn't flying at all. It was driving thru the beach. The another plane was driving thru the ocean, went to the airport landing line, made its usual turn, but didn't fly when reached the end of take off line. Drove to the beach, thru that highest building in vice point. Than wanted to fly somehow, but couldn't. And landed on the leaf links golf course. But when I restarted the computer it became normal again. It happened to me year ago. Enter these links & see them. There's a movie I made. If someone has quicktime player download & watch. It will say enter the password. The password is vicecity. Then it brings a blue link. click on it & open/save. That's all.

Heihachi_73: How do you know the true placements? Are you using a special program?

Placements? It just comes up on the screen, like when you go from Ocean Beach to Washington Beach it will display that. I've had Cubans spawn on the road near the airport before.

 

@ Vercetti2008: The 'silos' are those huge fenced-off gas things next to Sunshine Autos.

 

I also believe I've had super cop appear on the PC version too, I've played the PC version a lot more than the PS2 version. Will play it again to see if I can get busted this way.

 

Edit: I just got 'supercopped' on the PC version after about 10 minutes of 6 star mayhem. Supercop sprints up at light speed (other cops only jog towards you, and usually fire a few shots at you first), punches Tommy in the face only once, and Tommy ends up on the ground and busted from 200/200 health and armor. Happened right outside the Vercetti Mansion. Drove one tank in, ran around the other side and instead of getting to the other Rhino and got knocked out by Supercop instead. He doesn't just get you when you're driving apparently. Instead of replaying it, I quit in disgust, sorry if anyone wanted a Frapsed replay on YouTube...

I once saw a flying car over the road coming from the souther bridge when I was in the hospital getting health, I used the sniper to look better and just could not resist to shot at it, it just fell as soon as the bullet hit it, It must've hurt, I think it was flaming when it fell

These are more so glitches, but they are strange nonetheless- The first one being-

 

Tommy appearing to fall off a boat, when in actual fact he's still in the boat

I found this whilst taking a stroll on a boat. What you have to do i go to the very edge of the water possible, then turn as you hit the invisible barricade, so the boat drives along it. Then you'll see as you travel forward Tommy appearing to come off the boat, but he's actually still in it.

 

This all sounds very complicated, which is why I made this video a while ago (The footage is abysmal I know)-

 

 

 

Tommy able to walk through the walls on Prawn Island

I have no idea if this is well known or not, but I discovered myself when running away from the police. The three large buildings on Prawn Island are all surrounded by walls. If you go to the entrance of each building area, (where the walls break off to form a gap so you can enter the area), turn to the side where the walls continue, and simply walk into it. Tommy will go through the wall and will now be inside it! Pretty pointless but strange nonetheless. It doesn't help when you have a wanted star either, as the cops will go in the wall as well.

 

The top of the entrance doors to the building where you complete the mission Treacherous swine is not solid

First, get a very fast vehicle and then head over to the building, and reverse back to as far as possible. Then floor it, heading straight towards the entrance doors. If you are successful, you'll see the vehicle go through the roof, and if you go fast enough, you will jump up and over the entrance doors and will now be on the inside of the building. There is an area of grass and a massive hole in there, so to get back outside just jump down the hole. Again pretty pointless.

 

The men behind the stands of the restaurants at North Point mall will fall back into a hole and then appear round the other side

OK, get a gun like the Colt Python, and then go to the North point mall where the Store clerks will be. Then continuously aim your gun at them, and release the aim. They will step back, through the back wall until they eventually appear to fall down a massive hole. Then, if you go round to the other side, you'll see them stood beside the wall.

 

When on mission VC Endurance the Infernus disappears

I found this out yesterday, but it's probably well known. So I started the race VC Endurance and headed over to the starting grid. I then bumped into the front left vehicle to trigger the race. Then I looked to the rear, and the third place vehicle, the Infernus, had disappeared. When I got to the first turn the Infernus sped from the Escobar int. airport area and clattered into me, and was back in the race. Very strange.

Interesting things I'm reading, keep it up!

 

I remember the first time I played Back Alley Brawl, I managed to find a fast car, I forget which, and I sped down the alley from where the alley starts (you know, if you go to do the PCJ 600 sub-mission near there, you're looking right at it) and ran the guy clean over moto_whistle.gif and it just said on screen to go pick up the phone, I found it funny when Lance in the cut scene said "beat him to a pulp". and Tommy's breathing heavily as if he has fought the guy xD.

 

Not really unknown now, but when I played Vice City for the first time, I took the Skimmer (or whatever) and flew due East, just North over the North Point Mall. It was night time and the water was glowing near me and dull in the distance, and then I saw the sunken ship in the water and..me being a lot younger than I am now, it struck me as scaring the sh*t outta me lol.gif I tend to avoid going there, it scarred me so much lol.gif

 

Also, when I was playing it for the first time, I remember when I completed "All hands on Deck" I saw Cln. Cortez's yacht on the horizon for about 2 seconds, but after playing through it again, I've never managed to catch another glimpse of it :[

That is actually my preferred method. As you can probably guess, it saves heaps of time. Here's what I wrote about it in my Storyline mission guide-

 

Hopefully you'll still have the admiral after the first mission. So, once the mission starts, drive to the Malibu club, then drive to the required destination. Now, before you actually drive into the alley, make sure you stay in your vehicle. This WILL save a lot of time. Instead of getting out of your vehicle, drive at full speed down the alley, and don't take your hand off the accelerate button. A cut scene will appear, but if you timed this right then you will ram straight into the chef with your car, killing him instantly. This isn't in the script, you're meant to fight him with your fists. But as you can guess, this saves a hell of a lot more time. The chef will drop a cell phone, which you should pick up. Three more chefs will appear, and instead of fighting them, ignore them, turn around and head for the pink marker. To make Tommy go faster, repeatedly tap the sprint button. A reminder will let you know that you have left Lance behind, but this is nothing to worry about, as he will catch you up. Now get into his Infernus and wait for him to arrive. The rest is pretty much self explanatory from then on.

 

I too think it's comical when Tommy's panting. The acceleration towards the chef must have wore him out! tounge.gif

 

Anyway, here's a couple more strange things that happen in-game, that I have noticed in the past week.

 

A pedestrian driving a Yankee on the beach

I don't know if this is well known or not. but to do this, you first have to begin the mission PCJ Playground, but don't complete the mission. All you have to do is collect one marker, to trigger the mission timer, and then ride down the alleys, the usual course for the mission. Once you get to the 11th marker you'll see a Yankee drive in front of you. This is scripted as the Yankee is deliberately driving through the alleyway to try and cause you an obstruction. Instead of continuing down the alleys, follow the Yankee. It will drive straight into the wall separating the beach from the grass, and then it will turn and head towards the gap which leads to the beach. Then it will either veer left, and go back onto the roads, or it will turn right and go onto the beach. When this happened to me the driver drove along the beach for ages, until he decided to go back to the road. This is extremely strange, as Yankees don't spawn in Ocean beach at all (except for the two scripted ones during the mission PCJ Playground) and no pedestrian drives there vehicle on the beach, unless of course a police car is chasing you down.

 

I tried to park a Packer directly in the direction the Yankee travels, then did the mission to see if it would just drive up and over the Packer and beach wall, and continue driving forward until eventually it hit the sea, but to no avail. I've only tried this once so I'll give it another go some time soon.

 

Paramedic remains in back of Ambulance whilst I was driving it

To do this, I killed a couple of people, to trigger the Ambulance to arrive, then waited until the paramedics headed back to their vehicle. One entered the drivers side of the ambulance, and the other went to the back. Immediately I opened the drivers door and threw one paramedic out, and before the other could set off, I accelerated forward so he couldn't get out. He then sat there, motionless. So I then though what would happen if I did some paramedic missions. But it turns out that the paramedic was just an obstacle, as he reduced the maximum number of patients available to get in the vehicle from three to two. I then decided to get out of the vehicle and kill him, but just as I did get out and go round to the back of the Ambulance, he was gone!

a couple more strange things I've noticed in regards to buildings on the game-

 

The top of the buildings just south of the construction site you demolish has an invisible surface

What you have to do is get a chopper, preferably the Maverick, and go the the set of three buildings just south of the construction site you demolish, beside a tool shop in Washington Beach. It's quite tricky to get to land the chopper on top of the buildings, as they are at the very top limit of how high the choppers can reach. It is possible though, and when you get on top land your chopper and get out. Then walk to any edge of either building, and you'll soon notice that you appear to be floating in the air, when in actual fact you should be on top of the building. This is because of an invisible wall. Here are a couple of screenshots I snapped (apologies for the camera quality)-

The next irregular occurrence in-game is this-

 

There is a hole on top of the Pole Position club building, where a tree is shooting out of!

It's almost like the builders of the building decided they wanted to keep that tree, instead of knocking it down, so decided to build around it! Again you need a chopper for this, as you are going to have to get on top of the Pole Position club. It's not exactly on top of the club, but the buildings are attached. You have to land your chopper directly across from the hotel you purchase in-game, which is in Ocean Beach. Pretty pointless but comical at the same time!

The final strange happening is this-

 

All three dancers in the back room of the Pole position club have non-solid chests

Yeah, that's right. If ou look carefully at all three dancers, when they do a move where they move there arms over there chests, there arms shoot straight through their cleavage. Another pointless yet comical happening.

Well, strangest things I can remember right now.

 

1st: I crashed into this yellow "parking" building at high speed in the PCJ600, the bike crashed as usual but Tommy just went through the wall like it was invisible. He started to fall off like he had jumped from a cliff or something, and a few secs later re-spawned in the road next to the same building.

2nd: When doing the Taxi mission I picked up a passenger near Sunshine Autos, in the exact place where Tommy's standing on this picture, and that passenger wanted me to drop him off in... Sunshine Autos, more or less where the red ball is placed in the picture biggrin.gifbiggrin.gifbiggrin.gif

3rd: Crashed into this plane at high speed again in the PCJ600, since it was too low to pass under it, and then some strange images appeared while Tommy was moving around like crazy. A few moments of crazyness later I re-spawned near the entrance shown in this 2nd pic. I then went to get the bike as it was standing next to the plane.

One strange thing that happened to me was when I was using the flying car cheat on PS2 and my car hit a building downtown and the nose of the car (only the nose) got stuck in the building. Wound up hanging by the nose of the car off a ledge of the building. Wish it would happen on my PC version while I'm running FRAPS so that I could post a pic. You guys would get a laugh outta that.

Odd? Yes, but only to a slight extent. This has happened to me many times before, and I usually find that the car I was drving last is the car that will spawn in the parking lot. The car you last drove in wan't by any chance a Cabbie was it?

In the bank heist mission called, "The Job", I simply went to the second floor of the El Banco Corrupto Grande building. In order to access the third floor, I will have to use the elevator. I went to the elevator lobby. The floor of the lobby is black and I've noticed something on the floor.. I can see the first floor through it.
