Alright, I've check the save file and none of the "Trial by Dirt" or "Test Track" appeared on the screen, which means they're completed. You're at 74% and you've still got this stuff to do to reach 100% game completion:
- Vigilante Level 12
- Taxi Driver - 100 Fares
- To Collect Hidden Packages (82 left) & to do the Unique Stunt Jumps (23 left).
- At Sunshine Auto, you still need to do the following six races: Terminal Velocity, Ocean Drive, VC Endurance, Border Run, Capital Cruise & Tour!
Now, the tool that I'm using to analyze your save file is the Ancestral Recall Tool
which was created almost a decade ago by Demarest
. It contains two files ancestral.scm
. These are files that need to be replaced in the Vice City directory in order to be able to get the tool working. Obviously, the original files need to be renamed or moved in a separate folder, in order to be able to re-gain them after you're done with the tool and its' custom files.
Now, first off everything, go to \GTA Vice City\data
and renamed the main.scm
file into main.scm-1
or anything else that differs from its original name. Or you could just move it somewhere outside the current folder but in a way to remember where you put it. Now, take the ancestral.scm
file of the Ancestral Recall Tool you downloaded and put it in the \GTA Vice City\data
location; and rename it to main.scm
(in case you are asked to replace a file do NOT click "Yes" since that would mean that you'd lose your original file; however, that should happen only if you didn't do the first step, which is to either rename the original main.scm or to put it in a different location).
Now, the same thing will go for the American.gxt
file of the Ancestral Recall Tool. This time, go to \GTA Vice City\TEXT
folder and rename the american.gxt
or anything else that differs from its original name. Or, as in the other case with main.scm, you could just move it somewhere outside the current folder but in a way to remember where you put it. After you've done this step, which is very important
, place the American.gxt
in the \GTA Vice City\TEXT
location. Unlike the main.scm, this one doesn't need to be rename, since it apparently has the same name as the original file, the capital letter not making any difference at all (again, in case you are asked to replace a file do NOT click "Yes" since that would mean that you'd lose your original file; however, that should happen only if you didn't do the first step, which is to either rename the original american.gxt or to put it in a different location).
Now that this is done, and hopefully correctly, you may start your game and load your save file. Now, just as you're spawn you should see text rolling on the southern side of your screen. That obviously lists you what you have left in order to gain 100% completion percentage. After you've remember or written down everything, exit the game, go to \GTA Vice City\data
location and delete the main.scm file which is the custom one that the tool uses. After you've done that, rename the original main.scm-1
file, or however you renamed it and rename it to main.scm
; or in case you moved it outside without renaming it simply move it back in the data folder. Same goes for the american.gxt
file. Delete the current one located in the \GTA Vice City\TEXT
folder and put the old one back to rename it back from whatever you've named it.
This should be it. I know it's a lot of reading and understanding, but if done correctly it should work out well.
If you feel this guide is a little long, you could try out this
one which is a much shorter version. Good luck.
