hi, im omar from egypt.

im living in egypt now but i was born in UAE in 1997 and lived there 3years,then i gone to germany i lived there from 2000 to 2008(8years)and then i came to egypt where my family live.

i havent known any grand theft auto series in germany but here in egypt all boys and some girls know about gta.

i first played gta vc4 and end it in a long of time,then i saw a game that is named gta san andreas i was thinking its bad and not cool.When i played it for first time i found it very bad and i decided that i will never play it,but with time i installed it again and then i found it very cool and interesting so i played it.and i end it without using cheats for 2 times!

the first time taked more than a year and i was so happy but then my stupid sister saved her game on my game then.....

all is gone and my happiness gone be sadness.

but i havent forgived easily,i played it and with gods help i end it in less then a month,that was incredible and i have made saves for the game in the 10 save files.

and before ending san andreas i played gtaIII i played on it for a time not very much and then i stopped playing it because it was very boring and i havent played gtaIII for now.

return to san andreas,now i have a problem,im an ISFP and my feelings are high and i can feel with sad more than the happiness and everytime when i enter gta san andreas,i remember sweet,and ryder and big smoke when they are killed,and cesar so much,and if i go to countryside i remember the truth very good and catalina too,and the 2 races that cesar will do there,and in SF the garage,and zero and woozie,and i like toreno so much although carl hate him,and in LV i love woozie and suzie and breaking the bank in caligulas and maccer and pauland when i end the game i decided to won all the street races to win the million without cheats and its really! i won the mil and i played in the casino and got 2mil

but here comes the problem,before ending the street races i dont find anything to do,and every time when i open my PC i see what to play,then i open san andreas that means that its the only thing that i was doing.

and every time when i open gta-sandandreas.com and see the characters,im going to cry,im an 13 years old.

and specially when i go to sweets house,and the hood ,and going to zero RC and wang cars,and the garage and the four dragons casino,or i can say all LV pls i need anything to stop that im listening sad songs now and i really cried when i come over zero rc and wang cars and the garage.

if theres any solve for this problem please say to me.
and thanks to you all,with love.

Can you explain the problem a little better? I realize you may be using a translator but try your best.

Welcome to iGTA!
Weasel
Spend time just walking or running in the country.
Search through all the buildings in the citys that you can enter.
Use the Jet-Pack or Helicopters to fly slow and low all over the 'world'.
You said ten (10) save slots? There are only eight (8) in my games (PC & PS2). You can copy your saved games into another file folder to keep them safer.
Load your own MP3 music in the User Track files and play only that station on the radio when you drive.
omar abdo
ok i have done all this and i have put my favourite music in the user track but it havent solved the problem,i think that its an impossible problem to solve thank u all!!!
Weasel
When doing the missions have you tried to use weapons not offered by the game. Or arrive in vehicles/aerocraft not expected by the game.
Use helicopter to go to the and out of the quarry?
Use helicopter to go to the interdiction mission?
Use HEAT missile launcher instead of the RPG launcher?
Jump guard house in Los Santos and Fly Shamel Jet before you get pilots license.
Do Firefighting mission and then Burglary mission and buy safe houses before you go to the Johnson house when you first start the game.
ViceMan
So are you saying you've physically finished the game and all the side-quests and have nothing else to do, or is there an actual problem preventing you from continuing the story?


There's A LOT to do in SA; horesehoes, tags, photo ops, stunt jumps, races... So much stuff I can't remember half of it, I doubt you could've done all of it in a month on your second playthrough, unless using a guide.
omar abdo
yeah vice man u brought it i really started to do the truck missions and after the quarry then the park,ill try to make the fire and taxi missions but the ambulance i cant do it,i tried it much times but i cant,ok we have solved a part of the problem

after i do all that what to do else??any ideas??

yeah i forgot to say,does any1 knows where can i find an minishotgun??please tell me pls

Paramedic. Until you get the skill do it in Carson City, or El Quebrados.:
First knock off the rear doors, and the passenger door.
Start to drive off as soon as the patient starts to get into the vehicle.
Drive cross-country, drive over anyone that gets in the way.
Drive over curbs, (drive over cliffs if the level is less then seven.)
if the vehicle tips over keep driving, as the game will usually right it (if below level seven).
When the patients get out drive over them if necessary. Once they leave the vehicle they have no value. DON'T hit them if you haven't picked them up yet.
Avoid hitting Cops and Cop vehicles.
Use the Siren to clear the roads.
5% Fat or muscle on CJ, as you can't stop for food.
When you have accumulated five minutes or more, which should be about level seven, Slow down a little.
Plan your pickups so they cluster or are on route. Pickup the the most distant first. Try to get all three seats filled on every run.
The Level Number is the quantity of patients you have to pick-up.
Remember even if you fail you get to keep the money you have collected.

And like the cover of the "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" said,"DON'T PANIC'.

Roads are suggestions, a lot of missions make you think you need them, you don't.
Drive as if someone else's life is endangered, not your own. (Take it easy when you can.)

On top of the rail bridge that leads out of San Fierro into Bone County, you'll need a jetpack to reach it. It's on the support column.

'copter is also good to get it. (But you can't until the last island is open.)
Another is in an underground carpark North/East of the LV police station just west of the railroad underground tunnel.
And on a scaflolding in South East LV.
After Toreno's last mission (Vertical Bird) another will be in Toreno's Ranch.

After 4 or 5 years of not playing the game that was the only one I could remember, but now I remember Toreno's ranch with the four heavy weapons spawns. happy.gif

I really feel like reinstalling SA once again. Got the map out and I am currently reliving some nostalgic memories.

After looking at the map and the manual for a while I finally gave in to temptation and reinstalled it.

You know what. After reading this thread i feel like a bit of SA revival. But i know I'll get it on, play it for about 30 minutes and get bored. Mainly because i've played it to death in the past, and i'd just end up freeroaming. But also the graphics are like a mental block... I know that shouldn't effect me, as this was an epic game. But unless it was a 2d game, anything before PS3 looks terrible graphically, it's harsh on the eyes. i can't understand the concept behind it, but it feels like I'm bad lmao.
'
I'll probably feel the same about the PS3 in the future. At least I'm not feeling old. When i stop playing modern games and stick the my old favourites then i know i'm getting old!

I bought the Xbox version a while back to play on my 360. Still as amazing as ever.
Weasel
SA might have crude graphic polygons, BUT, at least it is playable with charactors that can be simpithized with. IV is pretty, but the action is blah, and the charators are people I wouldn't care to be with.
The Terrain of SA is bright and open, while the IV is Dark, cramped and cluttered.
DuPz0r
Oh i'm not comparing it with IV. SA wins hands down. I just meant it doesn't look very nice any more. I still have incredibly fond memories of SA. And i may play it again soon. I had the PC version but the disc was missing from the case last i looked. I'll have no choice but to play the ps2 version which looks worse.

I wonder if i can play SA on my PSP. I may have to look into that!
Weasel
From posts in other forums, it's not available for PSP, yet.
It might make it to Mobile phones first.
No, I can't Cite any sites for the above...
DuPz0r
Nah i didn't mean a psp game. I meant to play the PC version through the psp's remote play which has been hacked as far as i know.
ViceMan
The only problem I have is that I can't do any script modding because it's version 2.0. I can still do text modding but anything out of the main.scm file won't register in the game - new car spawns, new weapon spawns etc. At least all the mapping is done in text files so that at least is still moddable.

And it is still a great game to play, the graphics aren't that bad at all.
DuPz0r
I played it yesterday and for some reason the PS3 doesn't up-scale it very well and it comes out pixelated.
The PC version doesn't look too bad actually, i think i was going a bit overboard as it's been a while since i last played it.

Oh god, I tried VC on the PS3 and it seriously looked worse than it was on the PS2. It still looks great on PC however.
Severus Snape
Reading through this topic is making me want to pull the game out and play it. I have it on the PS2, and it's still one of the best games for that platform. Free roaming is the best thing in any game - games that make you go linear just piss me off (except the RE series, which for some reason still kicks ass).

But hands down, SA is one of the best games ever made. I have to go home and play now...
Massacre
San Andreas is the best game on the PS2 and original Xbox. Period.
