Personally, I heard otherwise. I always was told and and it's written in numerous places online, that using cheats surely affects your percentage and there is always a possibility of it locking you out for 100% and/or screwing up the game, depending on which cheats you enter. Like you ^^^^^, I think using cheats takes the fun out of the game anyways, so there is no reason to use them, especially if you're a major GTA fan and want the best stats in your saves, vehicles, and 100% Completion, etc...

I tested it by completing 'The Exchange' at 99%, and while completing it, entered cheat codes. The percentage was 100% when the mission completed.

Note: I didn't enter every cheat, so there is a possibility it only gets affected by particular cheats, the ones I didn't use. When I get some time, I'll try again entering every cheat.

Not at all. There's not even a stat for it in this game (tho some cheats may make missions harder to complete).

There is no stats like that in VC, either. Just in SA. None in LCS/VCS, either. They have the stat in all the HD Era games, too.

 

But I always heard from countless people and other faqs pages Online, that if you type in certain cheats it can literally "break" your game and/or lock you out of 100%.

 

I know for a FACT when I was a young idiot kid who resorted to cheats cuz I thought these games were hard at a time, I typed in ONE cheat and accidently saved over it in VC, and was stuck on 99% and it wouldn't let me get 100%. Then I restarted the game, did EVERYTHING I did previously, minus typing in the single cheat code, and I hit 100%...

 

I don't remember which code it was, but all I know is it locked me out, the same I hear about III and SA.

 

True or not true, I won't use them in any GTA game, though.

If you use cheat codes, you lose points.

If you use cheat codes in the very beginning of this game, you may even get negative points.

What are the missions that can prevent you form getting 100% completion?

The Luigi & Joey missions go away if you complete the Salvatore mission "Last Requests" before them.

Kenji's missions go away if you complete Donald Love's "Waka-Gashira Wipeout" before them

And last but not least, completing Donald Love's "Grand Theft Aero" will also disable Asuka's "Two Faced Tanner" mission

What war did Phil Cassidy and Ray Machowski fight in? It says they fought in Nicaragua but we haven't been there since 1933

The Nicaraguan Revolution maybe? He says "back when the country knew what it was doing" so maybe... I could have sworn I heard him say "back in 'Nam" somewhere though. Oh well.

That's possible, seeing as that went through the 1980s and it's said he served under Regan. I kept thinking it was Vietnam too

Does the countryside surrounding Liberty City resemble any real life ones in America? It's mountainey like the northeast, but there's not enough trees it looks like.

actually, phil was never in war , so ray's war days are questionable, it's mentioned in VC that he lies about being in war and he lost his arm before we could see him enter the army whatsoever.

Would a thread about discussing the radio be welcome or unwelcome here?

If you will be discussing the radio stations in GTA III and not other games or realf life radio. It will be welcome in the gameplay subforum for sure.

Am I the only one that thought it was strange that, despite being hailed as the suburban part of the city, has only a handful of houses and a housing project, with industrial stuff taking up most of it?

Seeing as Shoreside Vale wasn't really shown much in alpha/beta/even near-release screenshots, they didn't had much of a time to make it as suburban as they might want.

It doesn't seem like too much, though. It felt more like a micro-Portland seeing as there was a good deal of warehouses and the likes.

I felt that Shoreside Vale was rushed, and as a result lacked a lot of the detail that Portland and Staunton Island featured.

 

Cheers.

That makes sense, seeing as it uses the same hospital/police station models from Portland.

Agreed. Additionally the airport was placed there to pad out SV as well, I feel. In a beta map the airport was to be placed in North SI.
