Stuck on "Out of Commision"

Recommended Posts

mickywelsh

Can anyone give me a bit advice? ive tried this mission a few times, and the bit i cant do is when you jup the bike off the jetty and grab the helicopter? what do i press to jump off the bike and grab hold of the copter?

 

 

also, if this is the last mission, can i still do all the "Encounter" mission's, as i have only done 2 so far.

 

and as for girlfriends, whenever i go on that dating website and click "Date" next to the girls name, nothing happens???

 

 

I havent used any cheats in the game either

 

 

Thanks,

Michael

Initially you don’t need to press anything, however you must build up a decent amount of speed to initiate the cut scene where you must then tap the indicated button quickly to climb on board.

 

You can still do the random encounters even if you have finished the main storyline. Each character has variations in terms of what time of day they will be out at the specific meeting point though.

 

It may be that you are clicking on the “date” button of girls that you cant actually date. You can only date 2 girls on lovemeet (Carmen & Kiki) and 1 one craplist (Alexandra). The other women are listed there just for the realism.

there's nothing special you need to do, you just need to hit the jump at the right time to initiate the cut-scene. You have to hit it while the yellow arrow is on the ramp, if the arrow isn't there when you hit the jump the cut-scene won't be initiated and Niko will just fall into the water...

 

personally I had to re-do this damn mission like 10 times before I got it right...

oh i seen the yellow arrow carry on, but everytime ive hit the ramp, the arrow had gone, obviously not enough speed then

 

 

as for the dating website, the lovemeet person recommended Lawchick and i clicked date, but nothing happened.

I am in the same place right now. I managed to get a hold of the helicopter on the first try, but I couldn't climb into it.

 

It says to repeatedly press the jump key to climb up. Well, I just tried that about 300 times. Is there a special technique that applies to this?

 

It takes a f*ckload of time just to come to this stage in the mission, and I'd rather not go through it all only to fail again. Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

Just persevere while pressing the button and don't stop for a second.

After clicking date the girl will send you an Email saying where to meet her.

Now I'm f*cking angry. I went through this mission again only to fall off the f*cking chopper again. I even changed the binding of my jump key, just to eliminate the possibility of it being the problem.

 

I'm pushing the damned key at a machine gun rate, but nothing happens except the viewing angle jumpes back and forth sometimes. I struggled with the same sh*t on the mission where you're climbing onto the back of the truck, but at least I managed to climb that one (probably because you have much more time to do so). I have no problems climbing fences or stuff like that.

 

The fact that I have to do everything all over again, only to try the same hopeless sh*t again, is making me HATE this game! A problem like this is really all it takes to turn love to intense hate.

 

Am I pressing the button TOO fast? Should I try to move to the right? Should I hold the forwards button? I'm out of f*cking ideas. I don't even want to try again, because the anger it would lead to might make my head explode.

I'm having the same problem with not being able to climb onto the helicopter. I hit jump as fast as humanly possible and Niko never moves, it just changes camera angles a couple times and looks like Niko maybe moved a couple inches up then it says Peregino escaped and I fall off the helicopter.

 

Do I need to get to the jump sooner or something?

After another 10 tries or so I finally managed to do it... I couldn't get into the helicopter with my jump button set to spacebar or the right mouse button, had to set it to shift to be able to press it fast enough to make it work (PC version btw) It is possible but they made it way too hard to get into that helicopter.

I also tried changing the binding of the jump key, butt hat didn’t change anything for me. The first couple of times I tried this mission, I had to go buy ammo and armour first. I couldn’t save after doing this, because the mission was already started once you’ve answered Jacob’s call. To get around this, I ignored the f*cker until I had saved. The strange thing is that in my first attempt at the chopper after saving, I climbed into it with no problem. Of course, I crashed the damn thing a few times until I got it right, but after the save, I suddenly had no problems with the chopper even though I was pressing the same key in the same way…

I played most of the day, and I think I did this mission about 5 times, and it's lengthy... I tried moving the bike and the boat, as well as blowing it upm before the chase ensues.... I ALSO jumped from the dock in back to the water and SWAM to the boat, which was empty. I got there and climbed up on it, it SUDDENLY flipped over as another boat took off from the side port! I was blown away that no matter how I tried to diffuse the chase from happening, it didn't work.

 

I got to the ACTUAL jump as well and landed in the water, it couldn't have been too far off though, the heli was there, I assumed you might be trying to get the bike into the moving boat! I was not sure, both seemed there at the moment. I figured I had trouble GETTING there sooner because Niko wanted to climb DOWN into the water with that damned ladder to the water off the dock there, RIGHT next to the bike!

 

 

EDIT update! I just passed it less then an hour ago... The credits roll after you conclude! They are LONG!!!

Anyway, excellent game, other then the fact this mission needed two parts, just like the Big Smoke finale in San Andreas. It's too much when you have to add in the restocking of ammo and health/armor, as well as when you fail and you don't restart via the cellphone, you get a call and it initiates the mission even earlier! You can't save the game at that point.

Tap up with the D-pad, and "X" on the Playstation controller, you'll get into the heli in about 15 seconds or less. The trick is to pace the heli as well as keep it out of the water! I crashed it the first time trying to keep from 'overshooting the boat' No pun intended

 

Took two attempts. There is armor in back of a store up on the hill from the casino, back in town, just head to the the West there, and you can restock your armor for free.

Hi all.

 

I can get to the heli part.

I keep getting shot down. Are you supposed to drill the boat from the heli?

If so I am going to be attempting this mission for a long time.

I just cannot get the hang of flying the damn thing. (on the PC)

Can anybody help?

You automatically take an RPG hit, then you land at Happiness Isle and continue on foot...it's not a fatal hit. To get to the heli, just press up on the control and tap "X" like crazy (PS controls). It's the same as getting on the truck roof when you steal the drug shipment earlier

Unfortunately, I take the hit before reaching the island & the heli lands in the water - end of mission.

It is infuriating!

There is nothing special needed to get to the helicopter! You don't even need much speed! Just press acceleration while going through the yellow marker on the ramp.

 

 

BTW I passed the mission from the 3rd time. (First 2 I crashed the bike right before the ramp....I s*ck at riding the f**kin' bike)

R* could have made this mission much more better.....

 

 

 

PS: I love the game!

The first time I didn't hit any objects on the beach, but Niko still splashed the bike right in the water off the jump... I had the arrow appearing, and I was thinking he had to land the bike on the boat (as seen in some movies...like Fast and Furious 2)

 

As for maintaining the target in the heli (chase), what I did is adjust the lift (so as not to hit the water) and back off the acceleration when it gets too fast! That is key, adjust both forward, backward tilt of the heli, while firing upon the boat, and adjust the up and down toggle to keep the heli going up if it gets too low.

That's the key things that will keep you going to the shot-down cutscene, then you land safely and pick back up on foot. It is easy as pie from there!

I also have the problem with not being able to climb up the heli on the PC (tried with different keyboard bindings and my XBox360 controller).

Next try I'll do what is described in this thread: http://www.gtaforums.com/index.php?showtopic=38196

The first time I did the mission I lost Jimmy before I could get on the bike, and I am pretty sure I skipped that particular cutscene on all my other tries.

If it is of any help, practice with a Sanchez beforehand is very useful. You get a Sanchez in one of the previous missions, so if you can store it at one of the Safehouse sites, you can have a runaround on it at various times, particularly on rough ground, to enable you to keep your balance and build up speed. I also did a lot of practice with helicopters as early as possible, so that I was more competent in flying them - zooming in and out of the skyscrapers, landing, etc., it certainly paid off for various missions. cool.gif

Yes i really hate this mission. Why can't they just make it when you finally get on the helicopter if you fail after that you will be inside the helicopter instead of doing the chasing all over again. And why is pegarino invulnerable ?? I fired a few rockets on him before getting on the boat and he is just running like coward that is not very realistic. icon13.gif i thought if i could kill him before the chasing start that would make a really funny end. instead of forcing the player to make buggy chase all over again. sarcasm.gif

The Deal last mission are no better.... trying to get into the heli that is so you can kill dimitri . I remapped all SPACEBAR keys to my TAB key and that seemed to help. This whole "mashing button to get in/up.." is just stupid.

 

I had a GREAT time with this game up until this point.... playing a 30+ min mission over and over (took me 9 tries on the last DEAL mission) is CRAP and takes the enjoyment out of the game, not to mention that you have to start ALL OVER every freakin time....BOOORIIING suicidal.gif

Ok, SOL here it seems. No matter what I do (not skipping any cutscenes etc.) or how I map my buttons, Niko never pulls up into the chopper - he just hangs there for some time and then falls off, mission over. As described the camera angle changes a few times while trying to pull up.

 

Does anyone have a failsafe method to get this to work? There is no way any human can push the button faster than I did on my last few tries, so it's not a matter of mashing harder. I also tried it with multiple mappings for my jump key...

For the people having problems with getting on the helicopter, how did you fare with the mission where you had to climb onto the top of the truck? It's exactly the same, you use the same technique.

 

It takes a little longer to climb onto the helicopter than it does to climb onto the top of the truck, but it's basically the same.

 

And also, this is the last mission, it's supposed to be hard.

That, unlike the climbing part in the final mission, did not just cause switching camera angles. Passed this on my first try without issues.

 

And also, this is the last mission, it's supposed to be hard.

Well, apart from the fact that button-mashing should not be the hard part of a mission... I'd bet good money that this is a bug here. Some have been able to work around the bug by reassigning the button (a friend of mine had the exact same issue, and he solved it by reassigning the button; he tried it on my PC just to make sure it was not my fault and could not get up the heli either), others, like me, couldn't fix it with this method.

 

So unless there is a way to get up the heli without the button-mashing, I am SOL... until the bug is patched.

Another 5 or 6 tries, all with different button configs, and still no luck.

 

What's the default jump button? Shift (I tried that)?

 

I cannot finish the friggin story because of this sh*t.

Thanks Powdinet.

 

And it finally worked. Right mouse button did the trick, and I didn't even have to hammer it much.
