Vice City Android: Can only collect 9 hidden packages

I have not finished the Story missions yet. I am currently trying to collect all hidden packages. For some reason, when I collect a hidden package, it says "9 out of 100," even though I probably have about 20. Does anyone know why this is happening?

Never heard of it. Sounds bad, though. I have VC for PS2 and iOS and completed it for iOS a few months ago to 100%. I did the Hidden Packages, Rampages, and Stunt Jumps all in a Starter Save at the beginning of the Game, though. Supposedly, from what I heard, if you wait too long to do these things in the Mobile Versions, it gets glitched. So I went ahead and blew through all of this stuff at the very beginning of the Game before "An Old Friend" actually, where Tommy calls Sonny Forelli. There is methods to get to the West Island early and such. That is what I did. I have 44%, actually, before the first Story Mission in the game, "An Old Friend."

I doubt his Save is glitched as I just got done saying that it happens on Mobile to many people. Not just him...

 

FHTrojans, it's up to you. If you're going for 100% and all, I'd say so, yeah, start over. I really recommend doing a Starter Save and getting 44%, or as much as you can get (depending on your skill level) before the first Story Mission. That way, you can back up your Save so if you ever decide to do VC over in the future, you won't have to go through all the trouble to do all of the Side Missions, Collectibles, Rampages, Stunt Jumps again...

Can you provide your save game? I'm interested in finding what's going on.

Idk how to do it on Android, but on iOS, you use a Program like iExplorer and just put your Device connected to your PC and copy/paste the Save from your Device onto your PC and then upload it to http://www.gtasnp.com/

If this comes up again I'd be interested in joining the investigation. I've got quite a bit of experience tracking down save file glitches. I don't keep a close eye on the VC forums so send me a link if I miss a discussion. A glitched save to examine would definitely help. Does SnP trigger an upload file browser on Android and iOS like it does for Windows?

On android it does

But I think it depends on your phone, android version, used browser, installed file browsers, but basically it does work!

Thanks Tomasak. Can you fill in a few clues about which folder holds the saves? This process seems to confuse the crap out of mobile users if they've never done anything like this before.

 

If I can catch this glitch on an early game save it will be easier to eliminate extraneous factors using only a few examples. If you have a glitched save that you'd like to contribute please offer a brief description of your game progress and general play style - how do you balance sandboxing, missions and side missions? Is there something you do that might be different that most players?

It's in storage_root/android/data/com.rockstargames.gtavc (GTA3 is com.rockstar.gta3 SA is com.rockstargames.gtasa and CTW is com.rockstargames.gtactw)

On Android Lollipop: Local Storage>Device Storage>Android>Data>com.rockstargames.gtavc>Files>gta3sf(1-10, depending on what slot the game has been saved).b

 

On Kitkat or older: sdcard0>Android>Data>com.rockstargames.gtavc>Files>gta3sf(1-10).b

On android-- i use a file called Astro File Manager..

 

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.metago.astro

 

It has alot of features and a nice file search...

 

Search for gta3sf

 

It will find all saves on the device....

But it has ads.

And the ad free option costs 4.38

 

Or you root your phone, install a hosts file and have all ads removed from apps and the browser

 

Welp, i'm outta here!

 

I'd recommend ES File Explorer. No ads, and for free. I've used it for a few years by now. (Actually 2 months, after ROM Toolbox stopped working on Lollipop)

Sorry for taking so long to get back to you guys. I figured out what the problem was. I'm not sure if everyone here know how the game works on android, but if you quit the game while playing, next time you open the app, it's just like you paused the game. The problem was, I never actually saved my game, just paused and quit out of the app. After saving my game at one of my safe houses, the hidden package count was updated. It just doesn't update how many I have right away. Thanks for the help, though.
