Ambulance Mission Rewards
Complete 35 ambulance missions to get a heart at your hideout.
Complete 70 ambulance missions to get an adrenaline pill at your hideout.
Get onto Level 12 in an ambulance mission and you will get the infinite run cheat.
Easy Fire Truck Missions
Steal a fire truck and begin the Firefighter mode. When you are assigned a new fire to put out, press F1 to start a replay, then F1 again to cancel it. The fire will be immediately extinguished.
Easy Vigilante Missions
When in a police car, enforcer, fbi car, or rhino, start the vigilante missions. Drive close to the target vehicle, and press ESC to call up the options menu. Choose 'Resume Game', and when the game resumes, your target will stop his/her vehicle and get out, making them much easier to kill.
Editing car stats
In the GTAIII-directory there should be a subdirectory called data. In this directory, you will find the file handling.cfg, and others, containing the stats for different cars and objects.
Here you can change the weight of the car (column A, higher is better) and it's crash damage multiplier (column Y, lower is better, 0 means no crash damage), in order to make any car have the weight of a tank, and take no damage from crashes.
The file itself gives good pointers towards which values should be changed, and you should backup any files you intend to edit. The limits mentioned in the file are just recommendations, you really can put in anything you want. When done, just restart the game, and you edited police car will push vehicles like a Fire Engine, and take absolutely no damage from crashing.
Flame-Thrower At Your Hideout
Complete 20 fire mission on each island to get a flame thrower at each hideout.
Police Bribes At Hideout
Complete 10 vigilante missions on one island to get a police bribe at your hieout. Complete 20 vigilante missions on each island to get a total of 6 police bribes at each hideout.
Tip for Entering Codes
Codes can still be entered while the game is paused (at the menu screen). Hit Esc to pause the game, then type the codes desired. The codes' effects will take place once you unpause. This trick does work for entering multiple codes at once, and is especially useful when you must enter codes quickly.
Unlock The Borgine Taxi
Complete at least 100 taxi missions to unlock a new, faster taxi.
More cars in garage:
You can fit more cars in your hideout's garage than you are supposed to. In district two, the garage should only hold two cars but you can fit four in (or five if they are small). Park the first two besides each other next to the wall. Then, park each car after that next to the door. Get out and the door will open. Quickly drive the car in before the door shuts. Now all three or four cars are saved. In order for this to work you need to park them very close together.
Copy some of your favorite MP3 files into the "mp3" folder in the game folder. Start the game and you will have a new radio station titled "mp3 player". Choose it to hear your own selections.
Open the "skin" folder in the main game folder. Copy the skin "playa2.bmp" into any desired folder, then rename it "playa3.bmp". Open the "playa3.bmp", into MS Paint, Adobe Photo Shop, or another graphics program. Re-color and customize it as desired, then copy it back into the "skin" folder in the main game folder. Start the game, go into "Player Options", and choose your new skin.
Regain health with prostitute:
Car jack any vehicle and drive up to a prostitute walking the streets. Stop and let her approach the car, after a few seconds of talking, she will get in. Drive to a remote area where there are not any cops around (a good place is in your hideout). Stop the car, but do not get out. After about two seconds, the car will start rocking back and forth. You will recover approximately 40 to 50 points of health. When it is over, she will exit the car and walk away, but not before she charges you a fee. At this point you can beat her up and take back the money you just paid her. Note: The prostitute will fight back when you try to take your money back. If for any reason you both have to exit the car before it starts rocking, you will still be charged a fee (beat her up to take it back). You cannot do this with the same prostitute twice in one night -- you can however, pick up another prostitute and recover more health. Even though the maximum amount of health points is 100 when you start the game, it increases to 125 after the encounter and remains that way.
Portland: Get to Staunton Island early:
In the "Last Request" mission, it is possible to "maroon" the Japanese girl. To do this, look for the closest "island" when you pick her and Maria up. Get to the island and back the boat up a slope. You will hear crunching sounds. Experiment, and sooner or later she will drop off the boat and onto the island. From there, get to Staunton Island. You can cruise around and do everything else except take up any missions or side jobs. Kill Maria or the Japanese girl and the mission will end.
To go to the THIRD LEVEL..Take a right turn from the bridge of first levet to second level...and find a subway....and then go straight and find a board written SEASORE VALLE
