Garage Glitching

Recommended Posts

Krawk

Regarding my post on the UCV Black Maverick -

 

I stumbled upon this by mistake one day with the El Corona garage and two other vehicles...

In case any one is wondering where the Bulletproof/Fireproof/Explosionproof/Damageproof Seasparrow (on roof) came from, it requires garage glitching to create. To create the Seasparrow, I had left a Bulletproof/Fireproof/Explosionproof/Damageproof vehicle inside the garage and the Seasparrow on the roof (stored in the garage.) Use an earlier mission that's easy to attain a BP/FP/EP/DP vehicle and get an extra one for this purpose.

What's the big deal when you could just use a garage editor to create one? Maybe you want to keep the game as virgin as possible, maybe you don't want to use cheats of any kind, you name it. Certainly a 5-star difficulty in most cases.

 

I had done multiple low altitude flybys, causing the garage to open and close as I do it. My advice on maintaining the vehicles in the Doherty garage also works in reverse. Every so often, rather than losing a vehicle, the game instills the properties of one vehicle to another.

When you glitch a garage one of several things can happen;

-Vehicle/Vehicles inside are lost - very common

-Properties of one vehicle are copied to another vehicle - rare, may take days of messing around or might happen in the first hour if you're lucky. Even systemerror's BP guide says to use caution when storing Towtrucks as they may take the properties of other vehicles in the garage.

-Ghost vehicles will occupy space. What this means is you could have a garage that holds 4 vehicles but it will read as FULL with only 2 vehicles inside. If you look at a garage of this type with an editor it will usually show a taxi (or two) as being in the garage but looking inside the garage, it's not there! Only fix is to reload the save game or erase it with the editor.

 

To glitch a garage, I had the best luck flying past the roof and full speed with a Maverick. Maybe it has to do with distance from the garage when the door closes (???) or some other event more common with a Maverick?

 

Although the game itself is scripted, because of memory/buffers it's hard to say if the PS2 or Xbox versions would get the same results, work better, or worse? In this case, it was created on the PC Dvdversion 1.0.

Man I hate the garage glitches... I decided I'm better off restarting the game, because my BP/FP/EP/DP Admiral disappeared from Santa Maria Beach at some point during Catalina's missions. I had done nothing to mess up the garage - I never saved there and the only vehicle with it in there was the BP Forklift - but apparently no garage can be trusted completely...

Santa Maria, Palomino Creek and Prickle Pine are absolute no-save safehouses. When you enter the front door the garage opens. When you are in the Safehouse (somewhere else high up on the map) the door closes and there is a great possibility of it glitching. This type of glitching however usually loses the vehicles inside, the other two instances usually don't happen. Systemerror always hated the Doherty garage but that's because of its proximity to the street and how easy it opens when you pass it. Just avoid going behind it and when you drive South on the main road, steer clear of it entirely, hell, go thru Cranberry Station.

It's something about flying over them that changes things in memory. I have been able to recreate proofing other vehicles in the manner I mention but more times than not they either disappear or ghost.

You can add Hashbury and Calton Heights to the list as well, I remember them having a garage right next to the door as well...

 

BTW, is it true that Towtrucks can take out properties from vehicles? When I got one for myself so I could tow the BP/FP/EP/DP Admiral, I kept it all alone in a garage to make sure nothing happened, but if it were safe, I could perhaps get more special vehicles (like one of each BP/FP car from House Party...)

Ok, this is insanely awesome.....If it indeed does work...

 

@Krawk, are you telling me I could put an AP Vehicle with lets say a Ladder Truck (Fire Truck) inside a Garage and fly over it and the Fire Truck would be converted to AP?! Even if this took days, it's worth a try...

Santa Maria Beach garage is evil. One time it clipped me through the roof of the garage for no reason and I had to reload, losing three special vehicles in the process :(

 

Anyways, I've tried this glitch and was able to get an AP Firetruck II while still in San Fierro, although it took 200+ attempts :D Thanks man

There's no ghost in every glitches in every garage in GTA San Andreas. Rockstar Games' codes ain't fully completed.(FYI,codes are the language to create a mod and scm file.) Some of their codes have missing or any mistake. So some thing in GTA San Andreas would probably mistake. Just like sometimes,when you placed your car in the garage with a paintjob,then after you go there again,the paintjob will be removed.

 

If it's a ghost,it would be just a myth.

I was once attempting the trick at the Doherty Garage where you place a vehicle in between the interior and exterior and it keeps the door open.

 

Well... it didn't work, the door came down and ate the nice Turismo that I was about to store.

 

Which means that even moving vehicles around a garage can be dangerous. It is also worth noting that some of the LV safe houses have dodgy garages (namely, Whitewood Estates, Redsands West and Rockshore East), as they have the same design as the aforementioned Palomino Creek safe house.
