Does cheating ruin your game?

Recommended Posts

Smittyjajafrosty

Hey people,

 

I wanted to know if you cheat in Grand Theft Auto IV, would it ruin your save file? Like it would corrupt missions and stuff and not let you do them?

 

It happened to me in San Andreas when the two missions I had, I could not do because I used cheats which corrupted my save.

Well I've used cheats in my playthroughs and saved them without having any problems with the files corrupting. I use the health cheat a lot to repair my vehicles just out of impulse, and I mean a lot. I'm very obsessive compulsive when it comes to seeing any scratches or dents on my car. But despite the abundance of cheat useage, I've never had any issues with missions becoming corrupted or things not going right with the game.

It does block some achievements/trophies, but there are ways of getting them at the start of the game before enabling cheats, then once you have them you can cheat until your hearts content!

 

I've used cheats on all of my saves from GTA 3 all the way to IV, and i've never had any problems.

Are you guys sure that cheats dont ruin your 100% chances? I am pretty sure it does. I just got my first 100& in gtaIV and I sure as hell didnt use cheats biggrin.gif

I think that if in future your planning on playing Multiplayer then you should try to play singleplayer without cheats. That way when you start MP you will have more of an idea of how it will be. Also aa off will inprove your game.

In a sense yes does but only if its your fisrt run through, It kind of takes the challenge out of the story itself I think. Me, I use a different save for just using cheats and f**king around. lol.gifcool.gif

on xbox its not the same.

it only blocks an acheivement if you use that cheat to help you get the acheivement.

for instance acheivement "one man army" (survive 6 stars for 5 minutes) doesnt get blocked if you used the annhialator cheat before, but it will if you spawn an annhialator to survive those 5 minutes.

p.s. the best way to get this acheivement is to start a new saved game and go along the train track to algonquin. you get 6 stars for being on a locked island and the subway is safe as long as you watch out for trains!

On PS3, when you use certain cheats it blocks some achievements. However, I used cheats throughout the game and completed the story using them several times. After completing the story I tried to get some achievements, and the same ones it claimed it "blocked" I actually was able to acquire. For example, by doing health cheat I think it blocks "Cleaned The Mean Streets", but I got that achievement successfully later. I think it only blocks them for that time on the game, if you know what I mean. Like if you turn off/turn back on and don't use cheats for that playing period, you should get them.

They won't be any trains, the islands are blocked, no trains are aloud to cross.
