I wish there were more mods like this. It's like the lost and damned of Gta SA smile.gif. Will you be making more interesting storylines? Maybe your a bouncer, maybe a mafioso or something else with new features haha

@Players: Anyone with problems with crashes, please try the new fix method:

 

 

Yes! It needs a fresh install (can't be assed to start figuring out what mod or file makes it crash) to work.

 

So install a fresh version and DO NOT include the GENRL file in SFX.

 

 

@MinnieMan: Thanks man, if you just found the final fix you'll be my hero for life lol

 

And thanks for pointing out that thermal vision error in "A Lot like Waldo", I can't believe I missed that one. I'll add that to the "known bugs" section of the front page icon14.gif

 

1.) To find Mean Jean (during that mission), make your way to the intersection on the main drag (near the open bar and the parked bikes). You'll see a staircase (face north) next to the buildings, going up to an alcove. There's a big sign that says "Bikefest" above the area. It may be tough to see while Snake is high on acid and there's no radar marker, but once you approach her a cutscene will ensue and you're done the mission. If she isn't up there, then let me know (if someone shoots at her she sometimes runs away).

 

2.) There is a marker on the townhall roof, both a red sphere where you must land and a yellow marker on your radar. I do admit however that the marker is very small, about the size of a player "blip", and can be easily missed. In retrospect I probably should have used a larger marker.

 

If you have any other mission trouble, check out the Hell on Wheels Strategy Guide smile.gif

 

 

 

 

@tommzy2 & THking: Thanks for your interest in my mod icon14.gif

 

I do plan on making other mods, however I will be doing them in IV and V era from now on. I do however plan to release some addons for Hell on Wheels, including Motorcycle modding at the car shops.

 

As for a Harley Davidson, I tried my best not to include too many "real" vehicles, but there are harley type cruisers in the game. Originally the main character had a custom bike that was unique, but it had to be cut due to SA vehicles limits.

Well, the same gave is courrupted cause it saves with the thermal vision effect. Make sure to remove the effect if the person fails the mission. Also: The french guy isn't killable, and will not despawn if you save during the mission. When you save, you can start it again, and this time another french cop will spawn with the first one.

 

Make sure you look into this.

Yes I am aware thank you smile.gif I have added the thermal effect bug to the front page so others can avoid it. As for the repeating "Frenchie", it's a minor bug that shouldn't effect your ability to complete the game. If I ever tweak and re-upload the mod, I'll be sure to fix such errros icon14.gif

 

There is also a note on the front page advising against saving your game if you fail a mission, instead go repeat and complete the mission and then save (just to be on the safe sade, most missions are re-playable but a couple are not).

 

Otherwise I hope you all can enjoy the game crash-free biggrin.gif

@THking: Thank you for bringing this to my attention icon14.gif

 

- The "?" mark in Las Venturas means you've unlocked the Elvis side mission, but it's not working eh? The mark should have appeared after completing the final Mafia mission (but only if you choose the Revenge option). I'll look into it right away, the problem might be a misplaced sphere as there is more than one "thread" that can activate the mission. I really hope that isn't the case, as I will have to compile a new scm and upload everything again to fix it suicidal.gif

 

- For the native warriors, the marker should dissapear after the second mission. I don't remember having an issue with that in my playtesting, but I'll go through and check it out again. Maybe there is a bug of some sort in the mission cleanup.

 

- The savegame in the los santos trailer park doesn't work, but honestly I don't even know why it's there I don't remember adding it lol

I'll see what I can do about that too.

 

- Strange, the "A" (Adolf Swartzenhaggen) marker shouldn't pop up until you've completed both the missions "Deal Breaker" and "Beer Run". I'll check the code, maybe I accidentally have it show up too early mercie_blink.gif

 

Please do me a favor and check your radar, is there a marker at the Hilltop Farm north of Los Santos? It's a red rose with white wings. If that marker didn't show up after Bikefest, then that's a major issue cry.gif If it is there though, try doing those missions and then return to the "A" marker, let me know how it turns out smile.gif

 

 

@Hustla_XV: Thanks man, I appreciate it icon14.gif

And I'm always happy to hear it when the mod runs smoothly for someone biggrin.gif

(lol, "hell" of a job)

By the way, if you'll do fixes in external scripts and missions (not MAIN section), you won't have to tell people to start new game, old saves will still work smile.gif

Wow, thanks, it works fine and without crashes (some of them sure appearing by missions, but that's fine).

 

And I have a thing I did for myself but I think that more cloudy weathers and dark atmosphere will be very urgent for this mod, so you can use it free in your mod, if you like it. Download

It's like a thanksgiving smile.gif

 

Here's a pic of sunny weather (looks like cloudy because I made all skies more grayish, but actually i's a sunny weather) I made all weathers more darker and replaced some of them to cloudy:

Been busy lately but I'm still working on creating savegames for anyone who experienced errors before the "fix". Thanks again everyone for playing icon14.gif

 

 

@Silent PL: Thanks for the advice man, I'm gonna try that out. I'd be a lot better than making everyone start over every time I update something (maybe I'll make addon missions now biggrin.gif )

 

mcsim2401: That's pretty sweet man, it does make things more gloomy. I'll add a link to it on the front page as an optional download smile.gif

But sadly, making NEW missions makes the save impossible to load (DEFINE MISSION @LABEL is actually compiled at the beginning).

 

By the way - do you have something like a source code of your main.scm (NOT just decompiled SCM)? I would be willing to help with fixing some bugs sometime. I haven't played the mod, but I feel it is nice (at least it's 100% SCM made, not DYOM; why the hell DYOM mission won Best Mission MOD award this year???) and would be worth supporting smile.gif

Tried it few months ago, and I can say it's the second good mission mod I played (first one was Great Theft Car, if you want to know). The missions are awesome, and the biker atmosphere makes everything great. Also, I liked the Bikefest a lot. Great work. icon14.gif

@SatournFan: Wow thanks man icon14.gif

Glad to get some feedback about the game itself, and I gotta say Bikefest was one of my favorite parts to make biggrin.gif

 

@SilentPL: Damn, well even if I can't add missions it's still a good thing to know.

 

And any help would be awesome, I'll see what I can do with the scm to get you source code (I pretty much always coded in sannybuilder). If you can fix any of it you'd be a better man than I lol, also a big issue was the fact I had to remove a huge amount of external scripts, however I believe I can add them back in and still get it to work if I had help from someone who understood the coding a little better. Anything you could do, I would really appreciate icon14.gif

You could do a "DLC", as SA planned to have (which is the reason by when adding a script and stuff in a folder of MPACK in the GTA San Andreas User Files folder, it shows you a choice of what to play, but i bet you already know that.)

So you could just add a DLC for the mod. So after the story is complete, you can add later missions after, as like a aftermath.

But if you mean in the middle of the story, then you're pretty much screwed in the save department tounge.gif

Well, he can always do some workarounds with including multiple missions in one mission, but that'd be... weird.

@ManDog: DLC, now that's promising...I think I might do that some day icon14.gif

 

@MasterK: I'll check that out, if it's bugged I'll add it to the "known bugs" list on the front page.

 

I'm also in the process of fixing the minor bugs, such as the Elvis mission sphere that doesn't work : /

I'll keep you all updated on when v1.2 will be released smile.gif

This mod is pretty good. I remember playing it, it was fun but I stopped because I couldn't do any missions(bug)

It's good to see you have still worked on it, I'll give it another go soon.

 

Maybe do a Stret Racing story next? Or San Andreas Stories? Haha good luck

@tommzy2: I'm glad you're willing to give it another try, you won't be dissapointed wink.gif

 

Also I'm working on some DLC for Hell on Wheels, TBA soon

 

@ludi: Thanks for the offer, I might just take you up on it (I'll PM you when the time comes icon14.gif)

 

@zmud: Thanks, I appreciate it. Funny thing is I had the idea for this mod way back when San Andreas first came to PC, I just didn't know enough about modding to do it until now mercie_blink.gif

Youtube Video playthrough of each mission, you can check it out before you download but try not to spoil the whole story for yourself smile.gif

I appreciate your work a lot, man! Thanks for giving such a cool mod to us!

Unfortunately I couldn't get far. The second mission (casino) is bugged. Snake just keeps standing still & shooting, I can't move him anymore.

There are still some bugs like you won't be able to save at Los santos after level HIDE & GO SHEIKH.

The MAFIA Mission marker does not go after the level payback.But still I like this mod very much but remove the bugs.

@ Big_Mitch_Baker If you need any help in removing the bugs I can help you just PM me.I just love this mod.

@at72: Sorry to hear that your having trouble, I must say that's the first time I've heard of that particular bug. I've uploaded a savegame file just past the second mission, it should work as a temporary fix for you. You can find the file here (just replace the savegame file in your Documents/San Andreas user files):

 

GTA HOW Savegame (Mission 2 Complete)

 

You can also check out stuff in the mission you may have missed (if anything) here:

 

GTA HoW Video Guide

 

EDIT: I've tested the mod and the mission works on my computer (just confirmed on another), so I'm not sure the issue. I assume you don't have any cleo libraries installed (there's issues with CLEO and HoW). Script seems okay, but I'll look into it further and see what I can do.

 

@arijitsen: That's awesome, thanks man I'd appreciate it. I'll PM you sometime soon, maybe a fresh set of eyes can spot anything I've missed icon14.gif
