codes / percentages

15 replies 4 views Edited Jul 8, 2003

ok...i'm going for 100% like everyone in GTA VC...and i've heard that if you input codes then you can't get 100% which is fine cuz i hate codes...but i think that my roomate around january when i first got the game may have put them in or something cuz i'm so freakin far and i've done so much, but i only have like 75% (there are a few things i have to do that i know of) but anyways...

,

my question is..how can i tell if codes have been put in to limit my from getting 100%? i've put in like 50-60 hours (probably over 200 of unsaved hours) of gameplay

If you get 100 hidden packages and your criminsl level is not at 0 or a negitive number, then you are fine.

erm, well, if you've gotten pretty far in the game it might be hard to tell, but if your criminal rating is low, like around 3000 or so considering your progress, or if it's in the negatives even, then you know some cheats have been used... if you can't find all 100 hidden packages, that might also be a good sign

I had a game that I hadn't used cheat codes on, and I cheated right before collecting the final 3 packages, with the Health, Armor, and Wanted Level codes... and I was still able to collect all the packages.... however, that doesn't guarantee that I was just lucky with the packages and that it took something else away instead ... I might never know

So if cheats were used at any point in the game the criminal rating will be 0?

Well might or might not be, depending on how much cheats you used.
