getting 100% - things to do:

I've noticed alot of 'I'm stuck at ..%' threads, so I decited to make a stickied thread with all the stuff you need to reach the 100% completion percentage in Vice City.
--note, this thread was in the Missions forum once, but the VC forum looks like a better place for this.

100% - you need:

All storyline missions
All side missions
All checkpoint missions
All RC missions completed
All chopper missions
All wanted garages cleared
All streetraces completed
All Asset missions completed
12 Vigilante levels completed
12 Paramedic levels completed
12 Firefighter levels completed
10 Pizza Delivery levels completed
100 Taxi Driver fares. (not in a row)
50 Ice creams sold
45+ points on the Shooter
15 assets bought
15 stores knocked off
100 Hidden Packages found
35 Rampages completed
36 Unique Jumps completed
3 stadium events completed
- 1 minute on Bloodring
- 5 minutes (or less) on Dirtring
- 1st place on Hotring

rumors are going around that 1 hidden package disappears when you use cheats, I thought this was only for the PS2 version. I had this problem once, I don't know if it was a package but I'm pretty sure it was. (checked those faqs and maps ALOT without results) Just don't use any cheats when you try to reach 100%.

Thank you for the list, also being specific as some checklists just say "do the dirtring" - without saying it must be done in 5 minutes, which is what I'm hoping is the last thing I have to do.

the most impossible ones to do are:

All checkpoint missions
All RC missions
45+ points on the Shooter
100 Hidden Packages found
36 Unique Jumps completed

I cant beat those ever, the Rc missions are so impossible I need codes on to beat them or I can't beat them, Evan with codes there still impossible.

I think the RC missions are pretty easy, so are the checkpoint missions, in my opinion.

Damn - I did the Dirt rng in less than 5 minutes, but I'm still at 99%.

But I looked at my stats and my fastest time for the RC Baron was 345:47 which seems a bit odd, so I may not have won that race when I did it. Do you have to place first on it?

I have won the RC Bandit race and completed the RC pickup in about 5:28

I hope it's the RC Baron cos I'm getting a bit mad now at being stuck at 99% after doing all that work, esp the Paramedic missions - took ages and you have to be careful not to damage the mbulance too much or run over the patients (did that once at level 8 - doh!)

You must place in 1st for any type of race, so yes.

Thanks - I'll have a go tonight, I probably did that race about two years ago when I was just messing about so I can't remember what happened!

Having trouble with the Dirtring missions? here's a usefull glitch

take teh sanchez and go to the statium when the Dirtring missions are up. drive into the door, with the sanchez, and get off. then IMMEDIATLY jump on the bike again, before the mission loads.
Now, you'll be inside the stadium with 2 sanchez's, the one from the mission and the one you took in. (you're sitting on the one you took inside the building)
so, get all the checkpoints with the sanchez from outside. since you're not sitting on the one from the mission, the timer doesn't start. once you've collected all the checkpoints, get on the mission's sanchez to complete the mission. your stat is now 0:00 secs on dirtring

I hope you can understand this since i got the feeling that I explained this like shit lol

Hi,

I have a little question for you guys:

Can you still have 100% when you use cheats, but that you use only 1 cheat in the hole game? Does it have any difference if you just use 1 cheat or none?
Does the percentage depend on the criminal rating or the number of cheats you used?

(Sorry for bad English, I'm from Belgium...)

I only used a few cheats, on my 2nd time around, none on the 1st, an both games turned out the same , no harmful damage.
I think its 500 cheats used, or thos ones that make riots, an other exotic ones, never save with thos.

ohh.. wait around or check back later, i'm not sure on this problem, an expert will most likly give you a better answer.

So you used a few cheats, but still got 100%?

I dont know what you guys are saying about '5 mins on the sanchez'.

On the PC version at least, there is no time limit to the Dirtring Stadium mission, as long as it is completed. I know of no such limit on the XBOX or PS2 versions either. I can prove this personally - my time was around 12 minutes, and I have a 100% game.

The biggest reason everyone gets stuck at 99% is because of:
SHOOTER
SHOOTER
SHOOTER
SHOOTER
SHOOTER

This has been posted millions of times, but here it is again:

You must do the shooter mission (the shooting range at the Ammunation near the stadium) AFTER the mission where you do it with Phil. You must get over 45 points.

To get this the easy way, then what you do is shoot the bodies BUT NOT the heads of the front two targets. Then, just keep shooting the 3rd target out with all your ammo, and you will get over 50-55 points as long as you are not a bad shot. The back target is worth 3 points - the front and middle targets are 1 & 2 points respectively.

The other main reason is that the robbery missions are not done properly. The best thing to do is rob each store, and as soon as you exit the store check your completion list in the menu to confirm that the store has been added to the tally. Sometimes the alarm will go off but you may not get the mark on your tally.

The RC missions aint that bad, the most annoying one is the buggy one, as you dont get much time to make mistakes. You pretty much have to do it without going off the track at all. Personally, the Ambulance mission was the hardest, I find the easiest hospital to use is the one in Vice Point (by the north city mall).

Hope that helps some of ya.
