I have attempted the photo odd job, and when I've tried to take a few photo's and certain locations i am not able to do so.

Two examples I have all in San Fierro(obviously), would be the five round buildings nearest towards the area of Mount Chilidad. And the other would be the bridge nearest to the Army base, which by the way you can't get in, other than some mission you had to do back in the story missions.

I'm not able to locate the trigger button that makes the photo opportunity complete.

Has anyone who has completed this, had these problems anywhere, if anyone here can remember this?
ViceMan
Uh, the trigger should be the same button as the one that fires a weapon. It's best to do them at night, they're indicated by a glowing light, take a photo of that and you should get the completion sound and message.
GTA_SA
Thanks for the reply, I have done them all but two for the moment. I only just realised the whale sign wasn't in the game. And the fact that, some of the icons are high up when you have to look for them.

ViceMan
The whale sign is replaced with the Hashbury & Garcia joint festival sign.
Weasel
So... You have taken the heliocopter to the roof of the norther most round building to take the picture of next building roof south.
And... you have also used the chopper to the center span of the bridge to take it's photo.

To get the copter: drive to the Airport Guardhouse. Climb to the roof (jump up if CJ isn't too fat) then you can get to the copter. Walk to the gate and it will open so you can get you vehicle, if it sin't parked too close to the gate.

I only have the one that is at the docks to do, I can't see, I tried the PSy guide's images, but I still can't see it. I did try in the night too, no shiny light.
Weasel
Unclear to me "Only the one at the Docks" to do.
The submarine 'sail'
The rocks.
The Anti-aircraft missle launcher on the Marine Attack Ship.

Which Number do you mean?
GTA_SA
Forty eight, i have never found.
Weasel
Yes, difficult... it is really High up.above the building.
This map is very accurate sand close to the other building.
Aim the camera, and pan around. it may tke you a few second to spot the marker then zoom in a little and shoot.
GTA_SA
Would help by standing on top of the building? I suppose it would. wink.gif
Weasel
If standing too close, CJ can't get the angle.
emperorjj1
yup. i just stood to the side and looked up
GTA_SA
I still can't find it. I've tried close ups, I even walked on the roof and even tried the boat across the way from it.

huh.gif

When you said side, you mean facing the east side view, east side presuming your standing where the bike is in the dock area.
Weasel
Stand next to the Giuard House (or the railroad gate hut).
Face the Dry Dock Shed.
Now, look above the Dry Dock Shed's roof.

I still haven't managed to find the icon. mellow.gif I've looked everwhere I can think of. bored.gif
GTA_SA
Is anyone willing to perhaps show a step by step guide doh (12).gif
Weasel
Maybe you did take the picture? and missed one near by.
There is a photo icon very low between Cyclone type towers just north of this one. A shotgun is next to it. Maybe this is the one you missed.
which console do you have?
I'll repeat if you have a PC using the above link someone can check out your game.
Or if you are on the the PC you can download an accessory that allows you to check out missed items yourself.

GTA_SA
No, I wouldn't of missed it. This is the last one I have not been able to do, I did all those, I do have the guide. I have a copy for the PS2.

Weasel
Ok dokey...
I have CJ follow the railroad tracks down to the little guard shack.
Standing on the tracks next to the fence post by Guard shack CJ points the camera at the Motorcycle in the Dry Dock shed.
Raising the camera view until the barbed wire is visible on the left side of the frame zooming in the Photo Icon is plainly visible.

I stood where the guard shack was, and zoomed at the bike, and looked up, it isn't there.

In the guide is shows an icon in the dry dock, at the center of it where the shelter covers it, at the top of the basin of the dry dock. mellow.gif
Weasel



what more can I say, if it's not there you already got it and it must be a different one that
is missing(?)
One clue I came across is that if CJ is wearing the Thermal Goggles or Night vision goggles CJ can see the Photo-ops regardless of the time of day, without having to use the camera.
GTA_SA
Ah I see, thank you for the image. I surely would of been able to see that...

GTA_SA
It looks as if I defiantly would of found this one a long way back, the only one I can think of that i never did get is the one where the whale sign is or the parking lot sign one? I went to that sign and there wasn't one there.

I remember taking the snap shots of all the ones I see in the guide. Except for the ones above. blink.gif
Weasel
It's a pain, missing one.
What I did when I played on the PS2 was to print off the map I referenced in the previous post.
Then I put it in a protective (looseleaf) pocket. I used a china marker (a kind of crayon) to cross them off as I did them. Using this method I could wipe the sheet off and reuse it when I played the game again.
GTA_SA
I'll just have to go through them I suppose, but as for the parking lot one, where is it? It is suppose to be that sign in San Fierro.

There isn't a icon there.
Weasel
You've got me there. I can't think of any I would describe as 'parking lot'.
http://gta-sanandreas.com/guides/snapshotsmap/map.htm
Unless maybe, #23 at the stripmall just over the building?
GTA_SA
I found the place where the parking lot sign is, it has been changed in the final release of the game.

It's near Queen's or kings. There is a hideout there, near 12 on the map there.

In the trees of the Memorial Park. As seen from the church

GTA_SA
Isn't that the cemetary one?

I would of gotten the cemetary one near the church and the church roof top.

Weasel
It has memorial type walls, too. From the Church lawn (N/E corner) three Photo ops can be gotten.
the Memorial, the church spire, and the Grocery Store.
