Anyone know how long it takes for them to show up the second time?
I've done all of them but a few and they just aren't showing up where they are supposed to be for the second time.

What I did is I would go visit other characters. If they weren't there, I'd go to the safehouse and save the game then go for another pass. Keep in mind you do not need to meet Ivan, Clarence, Charise, or Jeff.

I've met everyone there is to meet, and finished most of them. There are only a few left (all second or third missions for them), but they just won't come. None of them. And I've saved a lot. It's getting annoying because I thought I'd get done tonight :P

Yeah, he was amazing and sick. I have them all except for the third encounter with Brian, but he just won't show up.

Brian is the crackhead character yeah? The one who gives you $100 at first for no reason then you take him to his dealer the second time? If so then I've done his third mission and I've not even reache Alqonquin yet.

Yeah, that's Brian.
I've gotten everyone, and I've checked on his third location like twenty times now, always different times of day and stuff, and he just won't show up.

I don't know what to say then, he appeared on mine right after I saved in Bohan and decided to drive back through Dukes at night and he was just waiting there.

Yeah, I've got all of those except for Brian #3
05-07-2008, 01:04 PM
Can they not be killed like some of the other non-main characters? Because if they can, they might be a problem.

Brian #3 appeared for me on Sunday (17:44 when I found him) on a street corner one block east of Michelle's flat, one block south of the highway on-ramps in the Downtown area. I had just completed "Crime and Punishment," Faustin's first mission to pull over vans loaded with televisions using a police car.
If anyone should come across a random character, it may be a good idea to list the time, day, and location they appear in an effort to narrow down our future searches.

I finally got him.
05-08-2008, 04:48 PM

I met a girl on crack in middle park and had to take her for her dealer and pay for her crack.

Playing thru the game a third time and noticing that these random characters are not exactly random. Earlier I had posted that Brian's third encounter occurred on a Sunday one block east of Michelle's flat. In this playthrough, he appeared there again, on a Sunday, and in the same spot. The only difference is that it was early in the day instead of later at night. These characters seem to spawn on certain 'weekdays' after their prerequisite mission has been completed. This may or may not be the case, however, as I've always run smack into Badman directly after completing the Shadow mission. I didn't take note of the day he was there so I'm not going to rule out coincidence just yet.
To clear things up, random actually adheres also to the fact that they are just random people who confront Niko, some from his past, some from LC etc. Not just the fact that they appear from nowhere.
