Strange things that happen in game

Recommended Posts

U think that it's not strange that they spawn at usual vehicle place?! Then what can u say about this error which pic I'll post right now?

And from now, please post your strange issues' pics, if possible!!! It's interesting to see.

It's not strange in the fact that, I assume, the files for the two vehicles would have been regular in-game non-law enforcement vehicles, that have been overwritten and transformed into law enforcement vehicles through the ue of modifications.

 

 

Now that! Is strange!

As someone already said, then yes that´s strange that if u do the Firetruck mission, that burning car drivers are still driving thro the city with it.

 

About taxi missions: are VC ppl really so lazy, that they can´t just walk from Washington police department to Malibu? Or from Ocean Beach to Vice Point beach? biggrin.gif

 

If this is already posted in this topic, then sry, but I still say it: If u shoot the drivers head and quickly go into the car from the other door, then the "unheaded" driver will "come up" again for some seconds and then fall down permanently biggrin.gif

That is most definitely strange, as well as comical. You'd think shooting the driver's head off will make them immobile, when instead they reach for the door handle, open their door and simply... drop out! Albeit without a head!

 

But the thing is, if that doesn't happen you won't be able to jack the vehicle, since you can't grab hold of a dead person to pull them out. Strange, but necessary.

I can´t remember exactly, but if a ped gets shot or run down by a vehicle, then sometimes they lay down (dead of course) strangely.

Feet and legs are in the air and so on..

I hope you get the point, what I meant biggrin.gif

 

Also, what is strange and annoys me is that if u pass the traffic and look back, then the cars are gone. But when you pass a cop car and look back from a distance, then the cop car is still there, driving towards you. Very strange!!

If I remember correctly, SA had the same thing?!

I don´t know, how´s the thing with IV tounge.gif

Yeah, you're right, @Kalev4ever. I don't know about SA & IV, didn't play the IVth yet. I'm loyal to VC. But the cars do disappear after awhile. It's the result of virtualness, or smth. I did notice another strange issue. There are another aircrafts in the sky.

Not sure, but I think that it's a airplane light. Ain't it so?

Yeah that annoying thing exists in SA as well. It would specially annoy me when I would pass by a rare car and then try driving all I could for it only to look back and see it has disappeared.

OK well yesterday i was doing the normal North point Mall sniper routine, and i shot a cop, firstly it was weird because i had no wanted level afterward, but secondly the body just stood there, blood squirting out of the neck, more blood cam out every time i shot at him but he just stayed there, even when i left the Mall and re entered!!

Yeah, it's definitely annoying, and definitely strange. It's the way the game was programmed; vehicles will only remain if they are in view of the screen, sometimes they will still remain if you drive by them and look back, but not always. There must have been a reason behind this, though I'm not so sure of it myself.

Those lines you see in the sky are other planes, yes. They resemble that of the real World, where sometimes you see faint lines left by planes in the air. Sometimes (In Vice City), on a sunny day, you'll see four or five lines intertwine and cross each others path.

 

 

Is there not an option on the PC to remove the clock of the game? If not then yeah, that is pretty strange. You know what I'd blame it on though; modifcations! tounge2.gif

No, mate, if u want to remove the HUD, then everything turns off. I'm not a loyal PC gamer, but I prefer PC, 'cause hadn't any opportunity to play on any other platform. But would like to.

The upsence of the clock is really strange.

Yesterday I've noticed that the police car became white. Follow the link.

I thought as much. It is pretty strange. How long was the clock not there for? Did it eventually re-appear on your game, or did it take a re-load to make it re-appear?

 

I've heard quite a few people go on about White Police Cars in their game on the PC platform. Apparently, they sometimes appear once 100% completion of the game has been acheived, but it just doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me as to why, if it is indeed true.

 

You occur quite a few strange incidents, don't you..?!

Yeah, i do. But these strange issues make the playing a bit more funny. Don'tcha think so? I've saved that pic with no clock in from the i-net. I like to save pics that are posted on other sites. Not only dedicated to VC. Just for fun. It's always interesting what does happen to other VC players. Again just for fun.

Were you on top of the Malibu Club? Or actually inside it destroying people with a few weapons?

 

In any case that's certainly very strange. Where exactly were you located? Did the Police car make contact with you or not?

 

Also, if you were on top of the Malibu Club with a six-star wanted level, you could survive for an eternity. The game assumes that you are inside the Malibu club, and thus sees no need to spawn any VCPD aircraft. No VCPD vehicle can get to you either, providing you're standing pretty close to the middle of the roof.

I remember the thing from Love Fists 2nd mission "Psycho killer", when I had to kill that psycho, then the Trashmaster came from a "alley way" near Ammunation, but it didn´t have a driver! It was driving by itself. And when I killed the psycho, then the rubbishcar started to drive and I heard the horn (logical, cos I was in front of it, blocking its way). When I went into the truck and went out again, then it didnt drive and horn by itself.

That's pretty strange for a couple of reasons - the first one being the fact that pedestrians do not actually drive the Trashmaster on the road; it is only available to Tommy, and the second reason is all too obvious. That is very peculiar indeed, something that has never happened to me before.

Maybe I misunderstood something but the Trashmaster DOES show up to block your way for unknown reasons during the Psycho Killer mission when the psycho tries to head for Prawn Island. (the Trashmaster comes from the alleyway across the hospital.)

 

GTA IV has a lot of these annoying "special" vehicles that suddenly show up during special moments. Another time you see something like this in VC is when you are doing PCJ Playground and a Yankee drives through the alley.

I`m not lying!! The Trashmaster really didnt have a driver!

 

As in PCJ-Playground, then from the streets, there come Yankees to block your way.

Yeah, even twice. Why the hell did it so? Yesterday I somehow landed on the bulding of the demolition man mission. It was cool, though. There was an invisible floor that could hold Tommy all the way. & besides there are 4, 5 levels to finish the building. Have a look!

I never actually registered the fact that during the mission this huge vehicle acts as a barricade, and thus thought the only time the Trashmaster spawned was in the Junkyard. Apologies for the confusion mate.

 

Kalev, I did exactly the same as you did, and exactly the same thing happened! Nobody was driving the Trashmaster, yet it was acting like somebody was. This is a fantastic discovery mate, kudos. icon14.gif

 

Vercetti, did you, by any chance, exploit the flying Rhino technique? It's possible to get to the very top of the tallest skyscraper on the game using the exploit; can be quite fun exploring places seemingly inaccessible to the gamer.

Thanks for the "thumbs up", flicko!

 

I really haven´t noticed it before, cos I have just ignored the Trashmaster and chased the psycho.

But a few weeks ago I did it so, that I parked a fast car near the "Rock city" place and then when the psycho escaped, I exited the limo and went into my fast car and chased him easily down.

Then when we made near to the alley-way, he had to exit the car and then I found about the trashmasters little secret.

Yeah, same here - most people just.. get on with the mission and ignore the obstacle in the way. I'm sure it is well known to some gamers, due to how old Vice City is, but I certainly never knew about it, and am glad that you shared this with us all. smile.gif

In PS2 Version, I entered the Vercetti Mansion to save my game right. Then I entered and found myself exiting El Banco Corrupto Grande!

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.

This crap happens to me so much

Sounds to me like you're too much in a hurry to wait for the gun to re-load. I've done the same quite often in the past, and, while it is annoying, it can be prevented with a little bit of patience. smile.gif

Changing weapons is a shorter way of reloading the .357, I knew.

There is nothing better to cure this than unlocking the fast re-load, which is done by attaining a score of at least 45 on the Rifle-range (after the Malibu Club mission - The Shootist has been completed). That's a surefire way to not encounter this problem, since there will be no apparent re-load; it's that fast!
