Where does the Blue Maverick go during the mission Toreno's Last Flight?

 

Interesting. 14 years, and this game still have to offer something I didn't knew.

Another revelation - You can shoot grenades in this game? Here's a video where it actually happened:

 

 

Here's the slo-mo GIF to understand exactly how this happened:

This is something new that I am going to definitely try.

Since most anything can be done with mods. Try to keep the posts in this topic to Only the less or unknown tricks that CAN be done by Ordinary players in the Vanilla Game.

Bunch of movie references in the game:

 

-The parachute in the game is similar to one in the 007-film Moonraker

 

-Whetstone resembles town Hope in First Blood-movie

 

-Smoke's Crack Palace is taken from the film New Jack City, where it's crack dealer Nino Brown's headquarters

 

-There's an old black pedestrian who recites quotes from the Friday-films

I found a cool strategy for the mission Deconstruction by watching this

to make the portable toilet fly directly into the ditch w/o using the bulldozer to push.

Here's a gif that shows the exact position and strategy. Watch the video for complete details:

Reading the comments, it appears that this is known, but it was the first time I came across this unique method.

Seriously, SA what else are you hiding that I didn't know all these years? :lol:

 

Amazing game, period.

Best way to do it is to get grenades (molotovs work fine aswell) and a shotgun (combat/normal/sawn-off). Once you throw a grenade, quickly switch to shotgun and shoot towards that grenade. You don't have to point your crosshair directly at a grenade though. If you don't point a crosshair directly, grenade will fly far away to the right, left, etc.

 

It's a fun thing to do, but if you have all weapons, it might be difficult to quickly switch from grenade to shotgun. Best way to do it is either having only two weapons in your inventory (shotgun/grenade), doing it on SA-MP or doing it with slow-mo cheat.

This is amazing. I didn't even know that the helicopter waits for you. I thought that once you've missed it by Chiliad, you've missed it for good.

According to unused text strings, you had to drive Toreno's car to the spot.

Modifications and "Unused Coding" is the same as it DOES NOT Exist.

Only a player with access (Which only a few bother with) to the code would know, and be able to make use of.

I know this is really minor, but in the same mission, CJ tells us how the idea of flying a jet scares him.

Another discovery from this 14 yr old classic game

 

CJ crashes the plane, but it doesn't explode ? ! ? !

 

This video was recently uploaded to show how the plane (shamal) doesn't explode if the player attempts to fly at the very beginning of the game.

 

 

 

Maybe the modders can figure it out

Also in the mission green sabre, ryder was not originally present in the BETA as the audio lines of CJ suggest. Ryder had to come in the mission photo opportunity when CJ would be suprised to see him

I don't know how many of you know this but I just discovered a few days ago that you can mod taxis in the garage.

All these years I knew you can't mod special vehicles(police,ambulance,firetruck) but didn't know taxi/cab was excluded from that list.

 

Now I am doing taxi missions in black and yellow car with nitros and hydraulics :)

False.

 

You took the information from the wikia that is not true.

Here's one:

 

GTA San Andreas is a legendary f-ing game and will always be. GTA SA actually feels like a GTA game, and it had something that makes you play it that other GTAs don't, I don't know what it is though, the atmosphere, nostalgia, or simply the fun you have playing it.

Too bad the PC version was f-ed up and keeps crashing and lagging. Maybe I could download an emulator to play it with the original PS2 graphics :p

In the mission "High Noon", if you try to kill Pulaski with a combine harvester the game will crash. I will do a video explination later.

There's an unused animation for falling on tummy, that can be used with Crazy Trainer. Here's how it looks like:
