FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

Am I losing money when I replay a mission?
No, you're not. When you replay a mission, the game creates a save and then pulls you back to when that mission began. Because of this, it changes your account balance to what it was before. After the mission is over, or you quit out of it you'll be returned to your main game with your account balance back to what it was before. The game shows that it's taking money, but doesn't show it being put back in. If you pause the game, you'll see that you haven't lost anything.

Anyone want to join my clan?

Quoting from the forum rules:

Clan Discussion
Please note, we don't allow clan discussion/recruitment/advertising etc on this site. If you are looking for a clan, please look elsewhere. Whilst on the subject, the x360a Clans have been tried, and didn't work. We will not be bringing them back. Any clan claiming to be a representation of x360a is doing so without our knowledge. Please let us know so we can investigate.

Are there any issues in the Brady Games Official Strategy Guide?

As far as we are aware, there is one issue in the English strategy guide, which is that Stunt Jump #50 is incorrect. There are multiple errors in the German guide, and we haven't heard anything about others.

BAWSAQ and Snapmatic are not working! Help?

BAWSAQ (stock market) and Snapmatic (camera) are tied to the Rockstar Social Club. Due to huge amount of strain put on the website, there have been a lot of instances where it is not working. Unfortunately, until Rockstar update their servers you'll have to just get lucky when trying to use these services.

Do you have to achieve all Gold Medal requirements in one run?

No, you can do them however you want. For instance, if you are on a mission that has a time requirement as well as an accuracy one, you could take your time getting the correct accuracy and then do another run through of just rushing to get the time. Even though the end of the mission will only tell you what you achieved in it, the Replay Missions menu will update with your Gold Medal.

How do I check my 100% completion statistic in-game?

Open the menu and scroll to Stats and then go down to the 100% Checklist. You can also compare your statistic against your friends by scrolling to Friends page and clicking Compare.

How do you buy a tank?

The tank can be bought from the in-game Internet on your character's phone or a computer at www.warstock-cache-and-carry.com. It costs $3,000,000.

How do I unlock each of the Strangers and Freaks?

Abigail - Complete "Blitz Play" and purchase the Sonar Collections Dock.
Barry - Complete "Complications" and "Pulling Favors" for Michael's mission to appear, and "Three's Company" for Trevor's and Franklin's to appear.
Beverley - Complete "Pulling Favors". For the 3rd mission to unlock, you have to complete "Three's Company".
Cletus - Complete "Nervous Ron".
Dom - Complete "Minor Turbulence". To unlock his final mission, you need to complete all of the parachute jumps.
Drayfuss - Find all 50 of the Letter Scraps.
Epsilon - Complete "Father/Son", "Pulling Favors" and the Epsilon Program Identity Evaluation on the Epsilon Website.
Hao - Complete "Pulling Favors". He will only appear at night.
Josh - Complete "Hang Ten".
Mary-Ann - Complete "Complications" and "Pulling Favors" for Michael. For Trevor's, complete "Reuniting The Family", and for Franklin's you need to complete "Predator".
Maude - Complete "Mr. Philips".
Minute Men - Complete "Mr. Philips".
Nigel - Complete "Friends Reunited".
Omega - Complete "Fame or Shame". For his last mission to show up, you need to find all 50 Spaceship Parts.
Rampages - Complete "Trevor Philips Industries".
Tonya - Complete "Repossession". After the first mission, you'll receive a text from Tonya. Call her from your Contacts list to start the next mission. You'll need to do this again to start the 3rd and 4th missions. If you no longer have the text, or can't remember receiving it, just ring her anyway.

How long does a character sleep for, and how many minutes are in an in-game day?

When you go to sleep, time passes by 6 hours (12 real minutes) if you're playing as Michael, 8 hours (14 real minutes) if you're playing as Franklin and 12 hours (24 real minutes) if you're playing as Trevor. There are 2 seconds to each in-game minute which makes 2 minutes to each in-game hour. That means there are 48 minutes in an in-game day.

How many cars can you store in the garages?

A character's personal garage (outside their safehouse) has space for 2 vehicles. Their special garage that can be bought or given free if you're a Social Club member can store 4 vehicles. Franklin will come to own 2 vehicles through natural story progression, and these 2 vehicles will always be placed outside on his driveway. Michael and Trevor own a vehicle each, and you will find them outside as well. Trevor will acquire a temporary safehouse in Vespucci beach, but this will not allow you to store more than 1 vehicle under the building.

Here’s a list of all the headline fixes, courtesy of Rockstar:

Fix for interface issues when using Internet on the cell phone after completing the game, or during a mission replay
Fix for the Vanilla Unicorn occasionally becoming locked
Fix for issues where the character’s money could drop below zero and become stuck there
Fix for the Epsilon Program missions not progressing properly after delivering some cars
Fix for issue where the Atomic Blimp sometimes does not appear as a phone contact for Collector’s Edition owners
Fix for issues with saved vehicles going missing, or losing their upgrades
Fixes for several map escape and collision issues along with other various bug fixes
The title update was included as part of the download which unlocked Grand Theft Auto Online earlier today.

The known bug that has a tendency to delete saved vehicles from garages seems to be triggered by several different things. Rockstar Games’ support stated that these include completing a mission or driving a character’s personal vehicle while controlling one of the game’s other two protagonists.

For the time being, Rockstar Games is suggesting that players avoid storing or withdrawing cars from garages. Additionally, fans should not drive the personal vehicles while on a character who is not the owner. The developer is currently looking into solving the issue, but the actually cause is not known at this time.

GTA Online FAQ

Grand Theft Auto Online FAQ

How do I deposit money?

You can deposit money in any ATM found around San Andreas. Watch out for people waiting nearby who will try to take your money.
An even simpler way to deposit money is to do it from your character's phone. Open the Internet app, click Money and Services, then Maze Bank and choose to deposit money. You can deposit some or all of your money, and it can still be spent in a lot of places while in your bank.

Ew, this forum is going to be 148x worse come October 1st!

But this thread is indeed great, so many worthy and important sticky's for this game. It's crazy!

Speaking of Online, can't wait to finish the Guide with you when it launches! You better not ditch me when we're both online!

At least Buzz recommended something to add to this. Lazy bastards think you can just make an Achievement Guide then talk amongst yourselves. Tut tut.

It's shocking isn't it? I cried, I actually cried.

Good bloody work too. Praying this cuts down on some of the threads.

Yes. Do want thread.

I'd like it to be sticky'd but the only problem is that we already have 9 threads sticky'd and it hasn't even been a week. By the time Online releases the first 2 pages will be sticky threads.

That's the point in this. If this is up there, the others can be taken off, freeing up a potential sticky mess.

By sticking this one, you can remove maybe 5-6 stickys at least. All we need is the roadmap and this thread.

I personally don't see ANY reason why any future thread revolving around the Online portion of the game would be significant enough to sticky. At all.

In my opinion, if the mods see that this thread is significant enough to sticky (which it is), then the only sticky's on this forum should be: Achievement Guide, Encyclopedia, Achievement Discussion, Gold Medal Checklist, Community Videos, and Achievement Trading Thread.

The "Reminder about the Clans" thread should be an announcement instead of a thread. That'll free up one more space for a worthless thread to take over.

Agreed. I was gonna say something to a mod about that, but eh...I don't know if you can have multiple announcements and Creech probably wants its there in thread form. But I agree with you.

I've started an FAQ, but I need your help to come up with some good questions that could help everyone.

its a good idea. but if this gets stickied, others will have to get unstickied. otherwise the page will be half full with stickied, meaning useful threads will be pushed down to page 2 easy, leading to duplicates

EDIT: not quite half, but a lot

Yeah, that's the point of this thread. It's here to have just a few stickied threads because all of the information you could need will be linked to from this thread.

Hence why OP posts them in the first post of this thread. Reduces clutter while still keeping them highly visible for others to find.

It worked well with Saints Row: The Third, so I don't see why it won't work well here too.

i understand that. but will other people really click on this encylopedia and search through threads instead of searching for pages? its a good idea, but having too many stickies will result in more duplicate threads, regardless if one of those threads is a list of other threads.

Well I'd hope "All That You Need To Know" would convince people that in this thread will be everything they need to know. This kind of thread has worked with Crackdown, Saints Row, Final Fantasy, etc.

I say it again here: GREAT JOB on this topic!

And about sticky's: Maybe the mods should be more active in this forum and delete/lock all the same topics that we are getting more every day. Haven't seen a single mod here who keeps those forum rules under control.

Thanks
