I don't really remember where it is, but you can see a computer running windows 3.1 somewhere.

There are several computers you can see throughout the game. One of them has a still image of an old operating system..

 

Anyway, another one is that during the burglary missions you can hijack a console that resembles a playstation 1.

If you tap the shoot button at the same time as releasing the jump button on a bike you go WAY higher (above the clouds with huge bunny hop cheat enabled!)

On PS2 version, there's a quadbike located on a farm near Dillimore. The weird thing is it's on 2nd floor of a farm building and will require something like another vehicle to climb to.

Found this yesterday: In the mission 'Local Liquor Store', Catalina can swim if she falls into water.

It also happens with Cesar in that mission where you photograph Jizzy, T-Bone, Ryder, and Toreno at Angel Pine.

When you complete the taxi missions, all taxis gain the ability to jump (like in Vice City) alongside the nitrous, but the game never mentions this. The jump is disappointingly weak though, barely even propelling you over a bike at high speed.

I don't know if it's been mentioned, but I just found out today that there are two possibilities for You've Had Your Chips. If you just walk in, the mobsters will say "who's this guy?" If you attack the blue Admiral outside the warehouse, then they'll say, "This guy looks like a cop" or something along those lines. The enemy placement is different for both ways.

There are Many Missions that, while the game implies you must use a particular weapon or vehicle and even approach, another may be substituted. Which is why the game is still popular.

Shawn Fonteno, the voice actor of Franklin, provided some lines in the game. At 0:26 in the Los Sepulcros cutscene, a homie says "What's popping, nigga?" This is Shawn's voice.

The fat GSF ped is voiced by him.

 

by the way i was playing The taxi missions in Las Venturas, and the destination was "Freemont St. Casino" which was in Old Venturas Strip. pretty cool as we never get to know the street names of any place, just the place's name.

it looks more like a sega genesis to me which would be more fitting for that time period.

 

there are dolphins and see turtles in the water ways between flint county and los santos.

:D I haven't noticed it either, but i looked it up when Hoarry stated it and he was true.

 

OT: I never noticed how close CJ and Franklin resemble each other

they don't resemble each other to me. i hope you don't think all black video game characters look alike lol.

You can break into the underground research facility in Area 69

-you can find a crowbar on an autopsy table in there, referencing Half Life

There's no "supposedly" to it, it's old as hell. It's a glitch in End Of The Line.

Probably not so much a 'cool thing' as an annoying glitch if you're trying to enjoy peace and quiet, but if you drive past roughly this spot with your radio off, the radio "resets" to the default station of the vehicle you're driving.

It could be because of your antivirus, it doesn't load on my desktop either but works normally on a laptop.

If you shoot the extra crates in 'Robbing Uncle Sam'(the other ones littered around the depot' they drop weapons. Uzi. Armor,, Shotgun, Colt, and Health

Coincidentally, I also have a fact about Robbing Uncle Sam. If you position the forklift just perfectly, it's possible to lift 2 crates at once. You can't put them both in the truck at once as they won't fit that way, but if you approach at an angle, it's possible to put them in one at a time without dropping them. Speeds up the progress of the mission quite a bit.

Didn't know about that. I did the mission by taking the crates one by one slowly lol.

 

It is possible to go beyond the game's fixed height by entering 'bubble cars' cheat, hitting a car to make it float, then quickly getting on it with Jetpack.

I've done it with the Hydra too. You can leave the Hydra in hover mode, tape down the X button, watch TV for 10 minutes, then come back and be miles above San Andreas!

on laptop is even easier to put it flying, remapping the accelerate button to LMB and put a lego on button then a cup or couplehundred grams heavy similar object onto that pressing button down and it's also achieved, same way you can reduce some ammo of weapon you don't like
