III Starter Steam version

  GTA III Steam Starter Package

  Download

  This is my starter package for the Dec.9, 2014 Steam version of "III."  It
gets some of the side missions over with so you can concentrate on enjoying the
main story missions.

  In the video at the next link I used Glenster's III Starter Package--Steam
version--to do some of the last missions of the game while demonstrating several
gimmicks for them.

  Claude hasn't been Busted or Wasted.

  These missions have been done:

  99 Hidden Packages
      One is over the median strip of the raised section of the Staunton-Shoreside
      Vale lift bridge.
  Vigilante 20 x 3
  Firefighter 20 x 3
  Taxi 100 fares
  Four off road missions (Patriot Playground, Multistory Mayhem, A Ride in the
                                        Park, and Gripped!)

   Save packages 2, 3, and 4 contain further missions beyond the main story missions.

  Mission tree
  http://en.wikigta.org/wiki/Mission_tree_%28GTA_III%29

    I've also included:

    - a condensed version of Robert Rusk's walk-through (thanks again!) with
      some of my PC specific additions
    - a folder of my maps and another of some gamefaqs maps
    - yoyo's '57 Chevrolet Bel Air convertible to which I added some details and
      a new carcols file (see my ReadMe file about my inability to contact yoyo)
    - my African-American prostitute mod
    - my Mafia Titanic Posters mod
    - my sitting ducks mod to make gangs less aggressive
    - a Hidden Packages and Rampage Finder mod
    - descriptions of the locations for vehicles for the Import Export mission
      and for the emergency vehicles crane

      Since I couldn't contact the modders and I'm just offering these mods with
      credit and respect at my own web site I've also included:
    - Spooky's IMG Tool and Jernej L.'s TXD Workshop
    - Odie's Miss Liberty, MrMilti's Shoreside Bridge, and Meltedsox' "Bridge To
      Ghost Town Version 1.5"

  Here are some possible ways to mod data > handling.cfg to make some missions
easier.  I use the Idaho for the 1957 Chevrolet mod.  A super Rumpo can be used
for "Big 'n' Veiny," "Turismo," going to an unlocked island early (due to the -1
for column I), etc.

  modded to be worse
  Look at your mission strategy before deciding to make one of these better or
worse.  For example, you might wait till after offering one of these to the
emergency vehicle crane in Portland before making it worse:

  The Health code gesundheit can be used to heal Claude and the vehicle he's
using without harming your save game.

  The Steam "III" has a gltch whereby the lettering of the opening screens
is very light or not visible but you can still detect the number of lines of
words.  The information below may help you navigate those screens anyway:

  Screen: Salvatore, Maria, Catalina, El Burro
  START GAME
  OPTIONS
  QUIT GAME
  Click start game

  Screen: Salvatore, Maria, Catalina, El Burro
  START NEW GAME
  LOAD GAME
  DELETE GAME
  BACK
  Click load game

  Screen: Kenji
  CANCEL
  GRIPPED!
  SLOT 2 FREE
  SLOT 4 FREE
  SLOT 5 FREE
  SLOT 6 FREE
  SLOT 7 FREE
  SLOT 8 FREE
  Click Gripped!

  Screen: Kenji
  Load the game and continue playing?
  No
  Yes
  Click yes

  Once the game has started the letters are visible as is normal.

  Save your save files in a separate folder as backup (in case those faint/in-
visible letters cause you to delete a file accidentally).

  Thanks to Silent, ThirteenAG, and thehambone at GTA Forums for telling me that
if you use compatibility mode (which you don't need for my safe game) your save
game folder doesn't appear in Documents but appears in Users > Public > Public
Documents.  However, your can Copy and Paste it to Documents and run it without
compatibility mode.


  Take good care,
