Does it look like this when it crashes?

crash2.png

Then it might be due to version differences. The missions might slightly differ causing a huge effect. If so, can I have your main.scm and script.img, please? I am here: https://client00.chat.mibbit.com/#[email protected]

 

I'm sorry that I did not say that this mission cancelling might not work on some versions.

 

Or, does it look like this when it crashes?

crash.png?dl=1

Then it skips that results screen too slowly. Did you hold F (instead of mashing or pressing nothing) before you went into the marker? You need to hold it for a while.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Edit:

 

Militia, can you link the video with audio commentary also, please? You cannot replicate it without holding the right buttons at the right times and audio commentary is easier to understand than separate descriptions. I think it is enough to just say that it is shown to work on one version without cheats and mods and that it might crash if in your version Driving School or Photo Opportunity differ and that therefore people should post if they have problems.

 

 

 

It looks like the secound one yes,

Ill try pressing the F and report back

 

When i did that it looks like White Screen and First Driving Lesson

 

I need to hold it Before going to marker then releasing it when?

Thank you, Militia. :) I hope no one is going to crash due to version differences. ^^

 

Bender, I'd just hold F from before going into the marker until after you have skipped the guy talking to you. Probably it is only necessary to hold it to skip that Results screen, though.

Can confirm that "un-duping trick" works on PS4 and its even easier to do on Console, it probably works on PS2 as well on any version since its easier to do on console no crashes at all.

 

Uploading a Proof that "duping mission trick" works on PS4, (i showed only duping process AND starting a mission)

Becouse when i would run another "Lure" game will crash - Even on PS4.

That beeing said, PS4 is Exact PS2 Emulation of the game nothing has been changed at all, Graphic is exactly the same

(Only few songs were removed thats all.)

 

WARNING: I only edited (fastforwarded boring parts!!!) No mods/cheats were used in shown Video!

If you obtain the AP Leviathan show a Video and post it here. Again, don't say it's obtainable until fully tested. I don't want the same thing to happen like the AP/EC2 Picador where I added it into the Guide, then removed it, and now added it yet again into the Guide...Yet, nobody is certain it works...Only one person and one Platform. SA is released on many Platforms other than PC...

 

Like the AP Packer, AP Sultan, and DP/EP/FP BF-400. I tested it on PS2. Works. The founder tested it on PC. Works. Fooking Rekt tested it on Mobile. Doesn't work.

 

AP/EC2 Picador? Only tested on PC and only one guy seems to only be able to do it thus far...

I wonder if this method of Patrick1994 allows you to get the Zr-350, the Broadway or the Washington which appear in the same mission. I think I will try testing that. The FI Leaviathan is something I would like to test as well but i guess I wouldn`t know where to begin with.

Lets not get ahead of ourselves. Nobody but Patrick1994 was able to pull it off as of right now. Talking about the other Photo Opportunity AP Vehicles and the AP Leviathan at this time using the same HIT OR MISS GLITCH is premature if you ask me. Wait for more people to confirm the Picador and on other Platforms and then we can look into the others. These Mission Duplication Glitches don't seem very good and require perfection to make happen. One wrong move = Game crashes. I'd rather a more universal method that everyone can use and understand.

Hello everybody. After a few hours of gameplay I managed to find a method to obtain FI ZR-350, Washington and Broadway from Photo Opportunity mission. I had to use a suicide cheat unfortunately, but it should be possible to do without cheats, just with some precisely timed death by flames. Here is the video:

 

 

Description (mostly from the video):

 

"My controls are:
TAB - pick up the phone call, view stats
F - action/cancel button (jacking a vehicle, getting in the vehicle)
Space - accept/sprint button

Here is what you have to do:

1) Get a camera and a gun that you can walk with when you are aiming (pistol, Tec-9, Micro-SMG). You can also fail this Photo Opportunity mission once to get a Trip Skip.
2) You have to be after Deconstruction mission but before answering the phone call from Jethro
3) Get to the Blood Bowl Arena, aim with your weapon, remember the time and shoot. The phone call will be postponed by 15 seconds.
4) Stop aiming your gun, start aiming your gun again and walk in the marker.
5) When 15 seconds since your shot passed, stop aiming your gun, wait until the screen starts fading to black and hold down the escape button.
6) When you hear a ringing of your phone, release the escape button. If you are in the menu, press the button once to exit the menu.
7) Try to move your car during the cutscene. If it moves, then all is good. You can press the F button to skip a cutscene.
8) Before the timer runs out, press and hold TAB. You will be holding it for a long time, don't let go!
9) Still holding TAB, select your camera and run to the Photo Opportunity mission marker near the garage in Doherty. You can jump on cars to give you a lift. (Note: when I tried to get there by car, I couldn't enter the mission marker when I got out of the car)
10) After entering the marker, you can skip Cesar's talk by pressing F
11) Still holding TAB, enter a car. If everything went well, you should see a Save Game Icon and a mission marker, even though you are technically on a mission
12) Drive to Cesar or use Trip Skip. I don't know if you have to hold TAB during that, but better safe than sorry. I used Trip Skip, so it wasn't a big deal.
13) Drive with Cesar to Angel Pine or use Trip Skip again
14) Still holding TAB, enter the mission marker and get out of car. Make sure that you are holding your camera.
15) Go upstairs and enter the mission marker. You will be forced to pick up the phone. You can finally let go of TAB now. Press F to skip the phone call. If you have your camera selected, then press RMB. You should get locked in this "camera view mode".
16) Proceed through the mission like normal until Toreno arrives (if you want to have all the cars to choose, otherwise you can proceed to the next point after making a photo of Ryder or T-Bone Mendez if you just want FI ZR-350 or Washington respectively)
17) This part requires some speed. Immediately after taking a photo, type "SZCMAWO" to commit suicide. You should get wasted without failing the mission.
18) Sprint to the place of Loco Syndicate's gathering. You can press W + Space even slightly before you fully respawn to get a little more time.
19) Select a weapon and kill the syndicate's last member (Jizzy B in my case). This will freeze the mission.
20) Select your FI car and drive to Doherty's garage. I chose ZR-350, because I like it the most. There will be no vehicles or pedestrians.
21) Park your car inside the garage and get to the Driving School (by car or on foot, it shouldn't matter), enter it
22) Press and hold the F button for a second or two, then enter the marker
23) Release the F button while you appear back in the school, then press Space. I died this time for some reason, but usually I just appear with my parachute selected. I pressed Space when I respawned after my death. This should clear the frozen mission.
24) Get to your Doherty garage and get in your car. You can see that the engine is still running, so this car isn't really saved in the garage.
25) Drive to a better garage if you have one, otherwise just get out of car and leave it in Doherty (this garage might be a bit risky to use).
26) Save the game and enjoy your FI car! You can also check if the save doesn't become corrupted, it shouldn't happen though."

Note: You could also die just after the phone call from Jethro, run to Ryder and take a photo of his face to move the mission forward. Unfortunately, I managed to do it only 2-3 times, and none of it was recorded. The game doesn't want to accept Ryder's photo most of the time for some reason. It might be handy to the cheatless method, though - enter the marker, kill yourself with flames, sprint to Ryder and take a photo of him. The rest of syndicate members' photos are accepted with no problem and killing one of them is a breeze then.

Note 2: A way to change weapons during being locked on the rooftop would help tremendously.

@toomuchinvigilation,

 

This is incredible. Again, though, like before, we need some proper testing, no Cheats/Mods, etc, etc, etc. I refuse to add anything into this Guide from here on out without proper testing...If there is more testing and this can be done without Cheats/Mods, I will add it into the Guide. However, you should get all 3 of them at the same time via triple driving them back to a Garage. Failing and killing yourself over and over for all 3....Or 4 (even though I didn't see you get the AP Broadway) isn't very wise for the perfectionists who like clean Stats...

 

Also using flames is hit or miss for a lot of people. A lot of people do Fire Truck Level 12 early on and would be Fireproof by this time...

You probably did not submerge it into the water deep enough if it lost the properties. What I do is literally drive it into the water, and then take some time to push it out using CJ's body. It can take a good 10 minutes to get out, but at least it keeps the properties.

Update


I might do a tutorial on those call holding / Blood Bowl etc. things but I am busy routing/de-bullsh*tting LV/desert with 4* for speedruns that I had mentioned earlier. For now, if you want to understand those, use tduva's demos and tutorials:


(so that you don't have to run from the stadium to Photo Opportunity)


Btw, some clarification on terms: Duping is starting the same mission twice. That is not what I do. I start the mission once and only once. The benefit I get with the glitch is that I could start the same mission again if I wanted to, but also that I can die without failing the mission and that I can take calls during a mission to gain control where I am not supposed to (the latter I do not need anymore). Technically, starting Driving School during Photo Opportunity is also duping, but that is not what people mean when they say that my strategy involves "duping".




- If you do not have a call available, buy Zero's shop. If you already have, maybe you have a low priority phone call. Those come in 1:01.5 minutes instead of 16.5 seconds after cancelling a call/finishing a mission. So you can use that one.

- Keep distance to the red marker on the screen. The trigger to the photo-taking part is larger than the marker shows it to be.

- I put the satchel so far away so that Cesar does not die. I have not verified that this is an issue, though. Also you might fly over the trigger if you place the satchel too near to you.

- Having the phone ringing while killing yourself might cause the mission to fail.


- Park the Ambulance where I do. He is going to turn around in order to get past it and that way his angle is correct

- Zoom in a lot. It does not matter how big his face is on the picture. What matters is that the zooming level is high. So if you stand near him when taking the picture, the game requires that his face is going to be all that is seen on the picture.


- There is no need to kill Jizzy's prostitute. She stops after a bit by herself.

- You can take all the cars, just keep in mind that the Doherty garage only holds four cars and eats one if you put in a fifth one.


- I added an input display for Driving School. I had forgotten to say that only the Driving School tutorial works, if you have already taken that tutorial, you are out of luck. I could give you a list of different missions to try if you ask me to, but I won't take the 5 minutes to compile it without a request. Leave a YouTube comment. ^^

As I've written under this video - that's awesome. Thanks for clarifying that Driving School tutorial thing as well, that confirmed my suspicions.

I'll dig into this links. A few hours ago I've been trying to use that glitch and a phone call from Catalina to obtain FI Infernus. My plan was to use the phone call to be able to move during the final cutscene with a PC version. Here is what I've found out (this description might be a little outdated now):

 

- Catalina's phone call behaves a bit differently than Jethro's. She calls again after 1 minute and 1 second after postponing her call by shooting a weapon, compared to Jethro's 15 seconds
- If you aim your weapon when a phone is supposed to ring, it will ring about a second after you stop aiming
- You can aim your weapon before the call, walk in the Blood Bowl marker while still aiming, and wait as long as you like after the time that a phone is supposed to ring. Then just stop aiming and hold escape button when the screen is fading. This way you don't have to be precise with timing, it didn't work every time, though. Maybe it has something to do with the weapon that you are holding? I had better results with a SMG, than a silenced pistol.
- I used the Blood Bowl arena, because to fail the mission in the 8-track arena in Los Santos you would have to leave your car (holding TAB doesn't freeze the phone call then), destroy your car while still sitting in it (same result) or wait until the race is finished (takes way too much time). It seems that you have to be inside a car when a mission ends to freeze a phone call.

- I had to be in the arena for over a minute, so the phone could "ring" again after failing the arena challenge
- After successfully freezing a phone call (it is frozen if it rings only for a fraction of second after failing the challenge), I spawned a jetpack with a cheat and flew all the way to Los Santos (entering a car unfreezes a phone call, but using a jetpack doesn't)
- I started the "Beat down on B Dup" mission and unfortunately, after the initial cutscene, CJ is forced to answer the call. Catalina and Sweet were trying to talk over each other, it was quite amusing.
- After that fiasco I tried to start the second mission while still in the first one. Then strange things started to happen. Sweet was cloned, the sky went black and the whole city was empty.
- I started a cutscene at the B Dup's house, but then I was ordered to start a gang war in Glen Park and there weren't any Ballas anywhere. Even cheats didn't help.
- I tried killing one of the Sweets (the one whose healthbar I was possible to deplete), but it just failed a mission leaving another Sweet as a normal NPC. Killing him didn't do anything.
- This time I moved further in the mission before starting it again. I made it to the "confront B Dup" part, went back to Grove Street and started this mission again.
- What happened was even weirder. This time, after the cutscene, I ended up with THREE Sweets and one of them started to shoot at me! The remaining two Sweets tried to kill this evil twin, but I got in the car and escaped with them (I had almost no health)
- I arrived at the Glen Park and found no way to confront B Dup - there was no mission marker. I killed Sweet, failed the mission and was left with some icons on minimap

Conclusion
- starting a mission again during the same mission doesn't seem to work well, there might be some additional problems with clearing the frozen mission
- getting from San Fierro to Los Santos while not being able to enter vehicles is a royal pain
- Catalina's call won't stay frozen in the mission
- the solution to all these problems might be to use Patrick's trucking method to "start a mission and not be on the mission", then start Zero's missions to get a phone call from him and use this phone call on the "confront B Dup" cutscene to be able to move during the final cutscene, jack the Infernus and drive it to the pond. I will try to test it later.

No mods, no cheats... Hm, maybe on mobile.

 

And old trick is to use the jetpack cheat during the intro mission when CJ is riding around in the car with Tenpenny to break out of the mission and prevent the game from locking the airstrip hangar and mod garages, closing the mission interiors, or raising the bridge barriers. Can this trick be recreated without cheats on mobile using any of the new strategies?

Anything done with duping hasn't been tried on Mobile. I asked Fooking Rekt to do it, but he has no time right now, but doesn't think it would work. As for me, I am 72.73% done with my Mobile Save and already converted 23 Vehicles into AP form...

 

I say no Mods/Cheats cuz every single Video in the Guide doesn't have them in. If nobody records a proper Video, you can count on it NOT appearing in the Guide. I will NOT include any Videos or Methods that use Cheats. Never have, never will.

Sorry, I wasn't trying to revive our old argument that cheat methods are often a stepping stone towards a legitimate strategy. My thoughts on the matter lead to a more practical suggestion.

 

Can mobile players gain the benefits of this exploit without using cheats by shutting down (or whatever worked for breaking the coffee cut-scene) during the intro ride with Tenpenny?

 

The jetpack trick was quite popular back in it's day. There were never any reports of ill effects.

Patrick, I've tried your method. It worked like a charm, pretty easy and no cheats required. This time I got FI Washington. I also changed my action button (TAB) and secondary fire button (LCTRL) to LSHIFT, so I could hold a phone call inside a car and drive from Blood Bowl arena to Doherty garage instead of running there. That's much better.

I will try it out in a week or so when I finish my SA Mobile Save if nobody beats me to it. If it can be done, that would be quite amazing, but I have my doubts.

 

Is anyone gonna record the AP/EC2 Picador, AP Washington, AP Broadway, and AP ZR-350? Or are these gonna go down as being obtainable, yet, never included into the Guide? I repeat, any Video made with Cheats and Mods and not showing the full Method, I will NOT add into the Guide.

Ok, I could obtain all 4 vehicles from photo opportunity of them on steam version, which is slightly worse since you can`t hold call by pressing tab, but it is no big deal if you use the trucking method Patrick1994 provided. Also none of the times I killed myself the Ambulance seemed to spawn, so I had to run pretty quickly and trap Ryder with the Savannah instead to take his photo. Then after that I just took T-Bone and Toreno`s photos and then killed Jizzy and then I went back and forth from Angel Pine to the garage until I had stored all 4 and then I proceeded to the driving school. I was worried one of them would vanish after cancelling the mission but all of them were still there. After that I save and loaded the game and the proofed cars were there. I didn`t record because I don`t know how to, but it was easy thanks to you guys contribution, I am sure anyone should be able to replicate this method.

 

 

I hope I can test it on PS2 soon, but I still need to work on a save that is on photo opportunity mission.

That's great and all, but regardless if the information scattered in the past couple pages was useful, there should still be a Video for the GUIDE...On Page 1. Right now it's new information, but several weeks down the road, the information will be buried and maybe newcomers won't see it, since they rather go directly to Page 1 and search for the Video.

 

Every single Vehicle known to man has a Video except these and until then, I won't add it into the Guide...

I do not feel like recording a huge video at the moment. I am definitely going to record one once there is less to do for speedrunning - which is going to take a while.

 

- If you aim your weapon when a phone is supposed to ring, it will ring about a second after you stop aiming
yes, as soon as you stopped aiming. The same applies to getting out of cars, as soon as the animation is done, you can get the call.

 

- You can aim your weapon before the call, walk in the Blood Bowl marker while still aiming, and wait as long as you like after the time that a phone is supposed to ring. Then just stop aiming and hold escape button when the screen is fading. This way you don't have to be precise with timing, it didn't work every time, though. Maybe it has something to do with the weapon that you are holding? I had better results with a SMG, than a silenced pistol.
It is a "race". As soon as CJ ended his aiming animation while being inside the marker, the first thread that checks gets the cake. Either the call thread checks if you can take the call and starts it - or the mission checks if you can take the mission and starts it. The call thread has an edge: SF calls are checked every ~150ms, most missions including Trucking and Blood Bowl check every 250ms. Bike School and Quarry are exceptions, they check if you can start them every single frame, they always "win". LS calls are checked every 90ms, Return to LS every 250ms, random calls (mostly catalina) every 1000ms. So if you use those, the mission almost always starts first.

 

- I used the Blood Bowl arena, because to fail the mission in the 8-track arena in Los Santos you would have to leave your car (holding TAB doesn't freeze the phone call then), destroy your car while still sitting in it (same result) or wait until the race is finished (takes way too much time). It seems that you have to be inside a car when a mission ends to freeze a phone call.
This is very different to what we do in Blood Bowl. In Blood Bowl, we just let the call ring. As soon as you are inside the Stadium, the call gets cancelled since you are now inside a vehicle without holding shift. After the timer runs out you are placed outside of the Stadium. Then you get a new call and then the mission fails.
For 8-track, the mission fails before you can even get a new call so you need to use the call that you receive at the start.

 

- I had to be in the arena for over a minute, so the phone could "ring" again after failing the arena challenge
The linked 8-track method also works for Blood Bowl.

 

- I started the "Beat down on B Dup" mission and unfortunately, after the initial cutscene, CJ is forced to answer the call. Catalina and Sweet were trying to talk over each other, it was quite amusing.
As soon as you let go off shift, the call is started. Starting missions takes control away from you for a little time, that is the same as letting go off shift. What you can do is letting go off shift yourself right after entering the marker, while it still fades. That takes the call, but you can move freely and shoot. Shooting makes the game not count the call as accepted and you get it again.

 

- After that fiasco I tried to start the second mission while still in the first one. Then strange things started to happen. Sweet was cloned, the sky went black and the whole city was empty.
It is complicated. I got three Sweets by starting it again at the start.
I am not even sure if I understand it completely myself.
The gist is that by starting the mission again, you get two instances of the mission. One of them fails and the mission starts again since you are still standing inside the marker.
This explanation leaves questions open, but that is all I am saying for now.

 

- starting a mission again during the same mission doesn't seem to work well, therre might be some additional problems with clearing the frozen mission
It varies from mission to mission. Since we speedrunners use duping to skip missions, we are informed. ^^ Here, have this huge doc with info on every mission: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1tCgCoyY9e88apJbbmQKIb2GiQdlIoBFkgcDhYqMj63o/edit#gid=883216134

Thanks for the feedback. After some testing I actually managed to get an ability to move during the final cutscene, but I need to block Sweet's way in order to get in Infernus before him (or speed away before he can kick me out of the car). I'll try to make a video tomorrow if I succeed in obtaining this bloody vehicle.

After many attempts I still wasn't able to drive away with FI Infernus. Sweet has to be stopped for a longer time, but I currently have no idea how to do that. Blocking his path with a car doesn't seem to be working well. Maybe someone else will find a better way.

 

 

 

Anyway, to be able to move during the final cutscene, you have to do the following:

 

1) Change your "secondary fire" in "vehicle controls" (default LCTRL) to the same button as "action button" in "on foot controls" (default TAB) (I chose LSHIFT for both)
2) Get a minigun if you want to get through this mission faster
3) Don't pick up the phone after "Breaking the bank at Caligula's" and "Home in the hills". That way you will have two high priority phone calls to your disposal (it might work with just one of this calls and Catalina's one, but hers is a low priority one).
4) Do the "Home coming" mission (the mission marker will be invisible, but it should still work) and save the game (you can jump over the "Beat down on B Dup" mission marker in front of your house)
5) Travel to RS Haul, wait for the phone call, aim with your weapon, remember the time and shoot. The phone call will be postponed by 15 seconds.
6) Stop aiming your gun, start aiming your gun again and walk in the marker
7) When 15 seconds since your shot passed, stop aiming your gun, wait until the screen starts fading to black and hold down the escape button
8) When you hear a ringing of your phone, release the escape button. If you are in the menu, press the button once to exit the menu.
9) When the screen is still black, hold down LSHIFT. You have to hold it all the way to "Beat down on B Dup" mission marker.
10) Get in the truck and travel to Ganton. You have to fail the trucking mission in the meantime somehow. I find detaching the trailer to be the best method, but you can destroy the truck or just get out of it and wait as well.
11) Get out of truck and walk in the "Beat down on B Dup" mission marker. You can skip this cutscene, but better wait a few seconds before that.
12) CJ will start talking on the phone while having conversation with Sweet at the same time. You can let go of LSHIFT now.
13) Proceed through the mission like normal. You should get another phone call. Do not pick it up.
14) Drive to Glen Park. Try trapping Sweet with your car as shown in the video. He will be protected from getting killed that way (sometimes he is being run over by scared drivers when you start shooting).
15) Kill all Ballas and B Dup's guards. Destroy Infernus that is parked in near the house. Get a police bribe if you got a wanted level. Ignore your phone.
16) Step in the mission marker, start holding "W" (walking forward) if you want to drive Infernus forward without getting wasted. Watch the cutscene (you could probably skip it after some time have passed, but it's safer not to skip it).
17) Your phone should ring during the final cutscene. Still holding "W" (if you want to drive forward) press LSHIFT to answer the phone and "F" to cancel it as soon as possible, then press F to jack the Infernus.
18) Watch helplessly as Sweet kicks you out of the car
19) Weep quietly

This is pretty interesting stuff, but personally, I'd like to find ways to get UNOBTAINABLE Vehicles at this time. The AP Infernus has been obtainable since 2012-ish. It's been obtainable on PS2 before that, I'd imagine using the PS2 V1 Method and moving CJ in the cutscene and driving it into the Water, as shown in the Video in the AP Infernus Post of the Guide. Putting the time and effort into trying to find another Method to get it is probably the time and effort it would be to obtain it the normal way with using a Tractor/Monster to flip the Infernus in the cutscene and push it back to Ganton.

 

The only Special Vehicle in the history of SA that I wish had a different Method is the DP/EP/FP/MP Police from Reuniting the Families since it's so luck based on PS2. If it was the same Method used on PC and Mobile to get it on PS2, I wouldn't be saying this, but specifically on PS2, this Vehicle is the worst one to get.

 

So other than the Police, I'd rather look into the unobtainable Special Vehicles. It looks like the AP/EC2 Picador, AP ZR-350, AP Washington, and AP Broadway are obtainable now, but I am still waiting on a Video to put into the Guide as well as add in the other Vehicles. Furthermore, there is a lot more Special Vehicles that are unobtainable that need to be looked at. I copy/pasted something from the old Topic that OrionSR wrote down about all the Vehicles that exist in the Scripts and what their immunities are. So just use that to see what Missions contain what Special Vehicle and the immunities and then find a way to obtain these...

Try starving with onmission=0 in Re-uniting for that car.

 

Edit: ok, the people who do not want to obtain vehicles themselves I do not expect to read on these ONMISSION=0 exploits. So: onmission is the variable that the game uses to track if you can get calls or start missions. ONMISSION=0 means thatyou can, ONMISSION=1 you cannot. Those new glitches allow having ONMISSION=0 during. a call and using that "onmission=0 call" to get onmission=0 during a mission.

ONMISSION=0 also allows dying without mission failure for many missions and receiving calls which allows you re-gain control during cutscenes.
