Was the Trashmaster's Beta Name the dust bucket? In Blow Fish, Toni referred the Trashmaster as the Dust Bucket several times.

I personally think that it's just a 'saying' as such, as we reference other things, not using the correct terminology.

 

I've merged this with the Questions Topic - Please post quick questions there from now on :^:

Just trying to keep the GTA III forum clean, that's all, the topics only been here for a short time so don't worry ;)

Strangely the merge unpinned the questions topic and changed the title - Epic Fail.

Where does this song come from at 5:02-5:09? I never heard it before. It's so beautiful, so sexy. I'm desperate to find it. My guess is that it plays around a certain building if you stand next to it but I have no idea.

 

Anyone know anything about it?

 

 

 

EDIT: Nevermind. I figured out that this plays right outside the XXXXX Theater (next to the pay n spray) in the Red Light District. I decided to put it on loop because it's so relaxing and puts me right to sleep. :ph34r::ph34r:

Can you turn into any special cut scene peds like Sal Leone, Curly Bob or Tony Cipriani with the "Change Costume" Cheat?

"This Video is Private" :turn:

But, I'm glad you found it, I tried looking back when you originally posted the question but ended up completely forgetting about it.

I just tried it for the last 5 minutes and no main characters came up (No Salvatore, Curly Bob or others).

However, even the last few spawns were characters/skins which didn't appear previously so I obviously didn't end up going through the whole collection of characters available to change to, but, I would have thought if you could change to a main character, I would have done it by now.

This section is for the unmodded version of GTA III, ask at the III Maps Modding section where there are skilled modders that can help you out: http://gtaforums.com/forum/48-iii-maps/ :)

I have just started playing GTA III and I'm after the first couple missions, where the game tells you to either go to the next mission or "borrow" a taxi and make some money. Apart from taxi fares, is there any other quick way of making money in the beginning?

Great List :^:

 

I'd just like to add:

If you struggle on Vigilante missions, Pause the game when near a target (By pressing START or ESC depending on the platform) and when you unpause, the target will exit the vehicle it is in, allowing you to just run them over.

 

If you play on PC and struggle on 'Firefighter' (Firetruck Missions), you can press the replay button (F1) on and off (press it twice ;) ) and the fire should automatically get extinguished.

 

For ambulance missions, you can follow

made by GTAForums Member Cristian to make it easier for you.

 

Other things you can do for cash, that are not listed on universetwisters list are the TOYZ Van Missions, delivering vehicles to the Import/Export Garages (and Crane for Emergency Vehicles), Rampages, Unique Jumps and simply hitting other vehicles with your car - They will all provide you some source of cash :^:

In response to this question, I tried looking for it back when you posted but didn't find anything - I am sure I have seen it somewhere before. If you don't manage to find it, maybe somebody can recreate it on the PC Version by parking a modded Blue/White Police Car outside of the City Hall. Edited by GTAKid667

Why did R* put the GTA I theme on Lips 106 and not Game FM? Sounds more like a Game FMish song to me...but only R* knows that.

I have no idea why Rockstar decided to put that particular song on Lips 106 (And I doubt anybody does) but I think it fits in very well on that radio station to be honest as if it was meant to be there, despite technically being of a different genre to the others.

Was there ever a reason for the hobos carrying molotovs in the Portland Tunnel?

Probably a leftover from potential Darkel place, where he would give you missions in the tunnel.

They are cool nonetheless, and you can multiply them :)

There is a trick 4 fast money.

1-Start a Firetruck mission

2-Don't go to the flaming car

3-Press F1 2 times*

4-It will show "Fire Extinguished!"

5-Keep on doing it until you get enough money

*This works only with GTA 3 V1.0!

This following points will help you duplicate them:

1-Take the Rumpo at 8-ball's house.

2-Go near the hobos and get on the bonnet of the car.

3-They will then talk,move and scratch their faces.

4-Get down again.

5-Another 2 old couples will fall from mid-air.

6-Kill 'em to get molotovs but don't kill the hobos that don't move so they will be there again.

So I have just bought GTA III off the PlayStation store as it was my introduction to GTA series

but it has been many years since I played this game but my question is this.

 

I remember there were three safe houses in the game, can you switch between safe houses so when

I have unlocked the final part of the map I could store cars in Garage 1, 2 and 3?

Yes you can. This is the same in every other GTA. In this you can even store in them before unlocking them.

No, they do not. You will still get 100% using cheats.
