how to obtain gold stretch in newer revisions

feel free to move this thread if its in the inappropriate section.

 

ive been playing gta vice city (trilogy pack ps2 ver) out of nostalgia.

 

during the mission marthas mugshot, i was unable to shoot the driver through the limousine window with the sniper rifle. this was the method used to obtain the gold stretch in earlier versions from what ive seen.

 

after experimenting, simply fail the mission by using up the film on the camera. the gold stretch should now start driving off slowly. it will drive slow enough to follow by running, and while its driving away shoot the stretch with any gun. this should startle the driver to exit the vehicle leaving the door open. make sure to leave the door open when exiting the vehicle until it has been stored in the garage as the doors will still lock.

 

hopefully this helps others who are trying to obtain the gold stretch in the newer versions of vice city where the previous methods in most faqs and guides do not work due to being unable to kill the driver while standing outside of the car.

You don't have to fail the mission at all. I detailed the technique here.

 

 

After Candy is dropped off, the Stretch will park itself on the road just south of Malibu Club. The player can proceed with the mission normally up until the point where a wanted level is received. After clearing the wanted level, the player can obtain the Stretch by shooting the driver and proceed to complete the mission normally while in the Stretch. The doors remain "locked" so attempt to keep it opened when not in the Stretch. After the mission is passed, the Stretch can be saved normally.

Just go on top of it and wait. After the cutscene you will still be on top of it and you can kill the driver through the window and get the limo.

spaceinstein: i was unable to open the stretch using your method. the doors were locked. however i did not try to shoot the vehicle to see if the guy would run away scared. like i said, my copy of the game is a newer ps2 version (trilogy pack).

 

jericho176: like i said, in this version you cannot snipe the driver through the window.

Oh, I didn't read carefully that sniping the driver didn't work. I corrected the technique of getting the Stretch above from memory but it probably still won't work for you. It's interesting that R* would change this minor detail.

Hey! I'm having the same problem now. I've found out that you have to fly/drive after the limo 'till the cutscene and then quickly fly/drive to the road near the Malibu (the one which has PCJ 600 with PCJ Playground mission parked nearby). There will be limo parked WITH the driver in it. You have to throw one molotov or flame him with flamethrower to get him out, then take the limo to the WK Chariot Hotel, take photos, loose the heat collecting the bribes while driving the stretch, or at foot (try to not get into a car because the car may vanish). Then you can safely put it into your garage smile.gif

 

I know it's quite confusing, but on Double Pack they've made some changes that makes collecting unique cars more challenging. I've had hard time to get Sabre Turbo from "The Driver" mission also.

This is interesting. I did not realize the game can be so different across versions. Can you upload the "main.scm" file so that I can have a look?

Hmm, I'll try this out.

 

 

Bythe way, VC section is almost dead! After flicko left there is almost no activity here.

I think they've made some minor changes during porting VC on XBox. I have to admit, that my version is Haitans Friendly - so I don't know if these problems are also common in the first Original Double Pack release on XB. Looks like the problem with Gold Stretch is not because of bugs in the game code, but more like intended. You can't shoot the driver, the windows are bulletproof (you can broke them a bit, but not destroy them completely).

 

Geneijin - have you collected Gold Stretch?
