VC Vigilante

The thing that never gets old about Vice City

Recommended Posts

VC Vigilante

Is Vigilante sub-mission, I've must have sunk 100 hours of just playing that mode on Vice City over the years. Its my favorite game in the series and the game overall is timeless however from pure gameplay point I think its the best using a non-hunter/tank vehicle. So many don't realize what they're missing by just simply skipping the sub-mission by using something that turns it into a chore rather than a game. Every time I play it something new happens I've never seen before and usually something funny as hell too. There are so many variables at work. I used to use the FBI cheetah and mess around in any part of the map but I find using the first spot is the best for vigilante. The other side of the map has a worse road network and the criminals spawn in more awkward spots making it tedious.

 

I got the idea to try it at the very beginning of the game to see how far you can get, its actually very tough and I've only made it to Level 8 on the PS2 and Level 10 on PC. There is a YouTube video of someone who got super close to Level 13 but died right before, however frame limiter was OFF. You have to have some luck with the time rolls building up at the beginning. By far the biggest threat is the stupid ass cops busting you in a myriad of ways. The 2nd which becomes more of a danger further in is the criminal shotgun which is cheap af. They seem to have perfect aim from far away but if you shot accurately from the same distance good luck nothing will hit. At the start you can only have 100 armor 100 health so shotgun hits are super dangerous. I wish Vigilante% was a speedrun category since there is lots of strats and unique runs so I might start doing some on Twitch.

I think the best part about all of these games are the new things you can discover, open world games usually lead to varying and unique experiences that differ from person to person. Keep me up to date about the vigilante% stuff that you would like to do on Twitch, I like watching that kind of stuff in my spare time.

True, I'm noticing all sorts of programming quirks just playing vigilante. There are the obvious ones and then ones you see once in a blue moon. I never fully mastered VC so just recently I discovered some new item spots and heard a "busted" dialogue I had never heard before where Ken says, "Officer (slight chuckling), my client wasn't even in town that day!". For some reason the game can't randomize audio dialogue like that because so far this year I haven't gotten the Tommy, "No, no, no, no, no, no, no..." one. Its similar to how fog only can generate once during the game on a checkpoint charlie mission and that's if you fail that 4 times IIRC.

 

I'd love to start if possible on Twitch doing it to see if anyone cares but setting that up is going to be a slog. I have so many things on the go as usual that I haven't even tried out LiveSplit yet but I suspect getting it to overlay on my game is not going to work first try. If I'm not using OBS or the like yet how does it overlay a full screen game? I haven't even beaten vigilante from game start.
