If you wish to post or use excerpts from this guide, PLEASE ask for my permission before doing so (especially if you work for a magazine or website). A lot of time and effort was spent putting this thing together and that should be taken into consideration. And remember..... "Respect is everything." Besides, contacting me will also give me an opportunity to hook up and talk shop with fellow GTA "thuggers"..... I truly want to thank those who have written to me about this guide even if you haven't received a response. I tend to read my e-mail late at night and sometimes I'm too tired to respond right away. Mainly because I'm either a) updating my GTA and other related documents, b) hacking up a console or doing more RGB experiments, or c) I've had a rough night at work (I work retail you know....). I've received a lot of nice e-mail about this guide from people around the world saying how good the guide is and offering suggestions (many of which made it into the previous revisions). I intend to continue updating and polishing this document for as long as possible. ***************************************************************************** "Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories" is copyright 2005-2006 by Rockstar Games, a subsidiary of Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc.

This feature will allow you to go to any chapter or section in this guide quickly. On the left side of many of the chapters, as well as the right side of each of the major section headers, in the Table of Contents is a four character code. To access any of those chapters or sections do CTRL-F (PC) or Clover-F (Mac) to activate the Find feature in the web browser. Then enter the code in BRACKETS (or at least the left bracket) like this: [xxxx] or [xxxx You will notice that the chapters for the Main Story Missions do not have a four character code. They are accessed a little differently. To access any of the Main Story Mission chapters you activate the Find feature and enter the > character followed by the chapter number like this: >KR6 or >ZD12 This feature also works backwards. You will notice that the Table of Contents has it's own four character code. Should you want to quickly go back to the top of this document input the four letter code for the Table and you will instantly be back at the top of the guide. /==XX====XX====XX====XX====XX====X##***##X====XX====XX====XX====XX====XX==\ 0===XX====XX====XX====XX====XX====X##***##X====XX====XX====XX====XX====XX===0 | Table of Contents [TBCT] | 0===XX====XX====XX====XX====XX====0##***##0====XX====XX====XX====XX====XX===0 \==XX====XX====XX====XX====XX====X##***##X====XX====XX====XX====XX====XX==/ /XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX\ 0================================================0 | I.

Who Am I? | 0===========================================================================0 \=========================================================================/ My name is Robert Allen Rusk and I am a hardcore gamer with about 30+ years of gaming experience. I am an ex-gametester (Broderbund Software, LucasArts Games, Point Of View Computing) and an ex-arcade attendant (Namco Cyberstation - Pier 39, San Francisco, CA). I also own multiple systems such as the Sega Dreamcast, Super Nintendo, Nintendo 64, Atari Jaguar, PlayStation 1 and 2, Xbox, and Xbox 360. I currently work at JCPenneys at one of the malls here in San Antonio, TX. Retail isn't the best job in the world but JCPenneys is a very stable company unlike some of the other places I have worked for in the past like internet service providers or web programming companies. I started writing guides in 2003 because I felt it was something I could do utilizing my writing skills gained in college and gametesting along with my passion for vidgames. Over time I have honed my overall writing and organization skills plus my creative thinking skills. I have extended the play value of the games I have written guides and FAQs for many times over plus I have received many letters from all over the world. I am also what one may call an RGB enthusiast. I hack my game consoles to try to get the best possible video from them and that usually involves tapping into the RGB Analog video signals and using them on the right monitors to achieve my desires. To this end I became a member of the GamesX.com mod forum and I post regularly on their "RGB + Video Discussions" forum area. In addition, I am a member of the X-Otic Computer Systems of San Antonio (www.xcssa.org), a group who specializes in Linux, Mac, and other systems. I am also a regular forum poster at GameFAQs, an occasional poster at www.Atariage.com and Digital Press, and I am also a member of the MOFAT (a members only message board set up by "Grand Theft Auto: Vice City" players who met on the Vice City message boards at GameFAQs). Outside of gaming, my interests include Godzilla (I have been a G-Fan since the age of ten) and Red Dwarf (I own all eight series on DVD). As far as favorite sports teams go my teams are the San Antonio Spurs (NBA) [the local team], the Denver Broncos (NFL) [although I live in Texas I am originally from Colorado Springs, Colorado], and the Air Force Falcons (NCAA Football). /=========================================================================\ 0===========================================================================0 | I.2. My Setup [MYST] | 0===========================================================================0 \=========================================================================/ This guide was constructed using TextWrangler 2.1.2 on a 1.5Ghz Single Core Intel Mac Mini. I view my work in Safari to help in seeing how it would look on the web and correct format errors. I also play GTA:LCS on my NEC MultiSync 3D RGB monitor using a homebrew RGB box that contains a EL1883 (MacroVision compatible) sync separation chip to acquire video sync, for RGB use, from Composite Video. When I do my writing and guide revisions I run my Mac (on a Dell monitor) alongside the PS2 (on my MultiSync 3D monitor). This way I can simultaneously play and make changes to the guide at the same time. The sound is hooked up to an old stereo box I got from Radio Shack when I acquired my first Amiga 500 in 1990 and it has served me well considering its age. For my guide work I have 22 memory cards for my PlayStation 2. I have reorganized the game saves on my memory cards and I now have eight cards specifically dedicated to "Grand Theft Auto III", "Grand Theft Auto: Vice City" (Original Version (1.40)), "Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories", and "Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas" (which uses up 15 cards). GTA:LCS takes up space on 11 of those memory cards. These memory cards allow me to quickly go and try out new ideas (and modify old ones) when they occur to me or suggested by others. /=========================================================================\ 0===========================================================================0 | I.3. From The Author [FRAU] | 0===========================================================================0 \=========================================================================/ Welcome to my "Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories" guide! If this is the first time you have visited, you will find a lot of useful information in a highly organized format that you can use to beat all of the missions of the game. Quotes taken from readers' e-mail are presented "as is" and may include spelling and grammatical errors. When I first posted the initial version of my Vice City guide, which was my first guide, I did not know how well it would go over and how many people would respond. I wasn't exactly swamped with e-mail but I do get letters from time to time. Sometimes people would ask for advice and others would say how cool the guide is. All it takes is for one person to say how good and useful your guide is to make it all worthwhile. And others have made suggestions that have been incorporated into my guides. I want to thank GameFAQs for creating a place where such documents can be hosted for the benefit of all gamers. I also want to thank IGN.com, NeoSeeker.com, TheVGNation.com, GameHelper.com, and many other sites for their generosity in hosting this guide along with my other work on their sites. I also want to thank everybody who has taken the time to download and read this guide. I love this game and I wanted to share my creative ideas with fellow GTA "thuggers". And, of course, I want to give a special thanks to all those who have taken the time to write to me and tell me what you thought, make suggestions, and ask questions. With that said, let's get down to business shall we?..... /=========================================================================\ 0===========================================================================0 | I.4. About The Guide [ABTG] | 0===========================================================================0 \=========================================================================/ The main emphasis of this guide is to provide creative and simple solutions to many of the missions of "Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories". Many hours were spent going over each mission and finding unique ways to solve them. I think you will be surprised by many of the solutions found here. I also reference the map/poster that comes with Liberty City Stories and GTA3. Some of the location names come from that. I have also done a little bit of creative writing within the landmarking sections to add a little more detail to Liberty City. I have worked hard to make sure that this guide is as complete as possible but at the same time leave room for exploration. I even included interesting and humorous anecdotes, observations, and lines from GTA:LCS. I hope that you enjoy this guide as much as learn from it. While this guide was written initially for the PS2 version of the game, this guide may also benefit those with the PSP version of GTA:LCS. If any of the strategies in this guide won't work on the PSP version, feel free to write me and let me know so I can make additional adjustments in future revisions. This guide is designed so that you can do the missions without any cheat codes. Another emphasis of this guide is ORDER. If you do the missions and tasks in a certain order, the game will be easier and more fun for you. You don't absolutely have to do them in the EXACT order I have them listed but as you read the guide you will see how it benefitted me. Each Hidden Package, Unique Stunt Jump, and Rampage has a letter designation to make them easier to identify in this guide. In addition there is a three letter Neighborhood Prefix (listings below) indicating a particular neighborhood or area where the item can be found (in these examples I use "XXX"): >>Hidden Packages will be identified with an "H". Examples: Hidden Package XXX-H21. Package XXX-H32. XXX-H65. >>Rampages will be identified with an "R". Examples: Rampage XXX-R34. XXX-R16. >>Unique Stunt Jumps will be identified with a "J". Examples: Unique Stunt Jump XXX-J24. Unique Jump XXX-J12. Jump XXX-J8. XXX-J31. 0======================0 | Neighborhood Prefixes \ 0========================0 PTL - Portland Island SSV - Shoreside Vale HWD - Harwood CCD - Cochrane Dam STM - St. Marks CDG - Cedar Grove PTB - Portland Beach PKC - Pike Creek HPH - Hepburn Heights WCG - Wichita Gardens RLD - Red Light District FIA - Francis International Airport CHT - Chinatown PLV - Portland View PHB - Portland Harbor TTN - Trenton CLB - Callahan Bridge CPT - Callahan Point AQY - Atlantic Quays STI - Staunton Island RFD - Rockford APT - Aspatria LBC - Liberty Campus FRS - Fort Staunton NPT - Newport BLP - Belleville Park TRG - Torrington BDT - Bedford Point /=========================================================================\ 0===========================================================================0 | I.5.

"Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories" [GTLC] | 0===========================================================================0 \=========================================================================/ "Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories" is a prequel to "Grand Theft Auto III". This title was originally released on the PlayStation Portable (PSP) handheld system. For awhile it was only available on that platform. Whenever I went to a game store I would occasionally look at at PSP to see what the prices were. This title was the only reason I would even look at a PSP. But when Rockstar announced that this title was coming out on the PlayStation 2, I stopped looking at PSPs. Liberty City Stories, set in the year 1998, serves to fill in some details of some of the characters, and the city, featured in "Grand Theft Auto III" which is set in 2001. The game itself isn't supposed to be revolutionary but serves to fill in some backgrounds on the people and history of Liberty City. It is far more expansive that "Grand Theft Auto III" with more missions and side-missions and vehicles including motorcycles. All in all, a very solid game, even more so considering that it is port from the PSP version. It is not perfect by any means but then again none of the previous GTAs were either. And, at less than $20, a very good value. Although there are supposed to be no differences between the PSP and PlayStation 2 versions I have had at least one reader inquire about a Cop Outfit within the PSP version that may not be within the PlayStation 2 version. Any information on that would be helpful. /=========================================================================\ 0===========================================================================0 | I.7. Xploder HDTV Player (PlayStation 2) Data [XPTV] | 0===========================================================================0 \=========================================================================/ Xploder HDTV Player is a disc that will allow PlayStation 2 owners to play most of their games in Progressive Scan mode. Many games will work but some of them will have issues. "Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories" works great in 480p mode. However, the main title intro will be glitchy because of "line meshing issues". This is actually a minor problem since you can easily skip the opening credits by pressing X. Once you get past the intro, all is good. Because the graphics are designed for 480 vertical resolution it is not recommended that you put Liberty City Stories in any mode higher than 480p. The higher resolution modes, like 720p, simply shoehorn the 480 graphics into the higher end modes and tend to really squash the screen. /=========================================================================\ 0===========================================================================0 | I.8. HDLoader Data [HDLD] | 0===========================================================================0 \=========================================================================/ This program, which has been floating around the internet for years, will let you install your favorite games onto a hard drive (assuming you have an older style PS2 "Fatty" (with a Network Adapter) or an early version of a PS2 "Slim" that has been modified to use a hard drive). There are two variants of this program. The first variant is HDLoader which is freeware and HDAdvance which is not. It is best to use HDLoader since it is free and gets updated from time to time to improve compatibility and functionality. HDLoader is best installed with a popular memory card exploit known as Free McBoot. It is how I am using HDLoader now (with a 160GB hard drive). LCS, from what I know, has always never been compatible with the earliest versions of HDAdvance and HDLoader. Only the latest version of HDLoader, .8c, works with LCS. Why install the game on a hard drive? For starters, less wear and tear on the DVD-ROM mechanism. But mainly it is for faster loading speeds. With LCS everything (initial load, loading from memory cards, entering/exiting buildings, changing outfits, loading missions, and the "Welcome to" screens that come up when you go from section to section) loads up faster. Well worth the effort to install onto a hard drive. Currently there is no reliable method to use HDLoader with HDTV Player to allow you to play LCS off the hard drive in Progressive Scan mode. With that done, let's move on to the most basic of functions...... /=========================================================================\ 0===========================================================================0 | I.9. Controls and Vehicles [CTRS] | 0===========================================================================0 \=========================================================================/ Although the manual covers the setup pretty good, I felt that I should include a section on controls for those who have acquired used copies of Liberty City Stories that have no manuals. I have also included basic action and vehicle information with their respective control schemes. /XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX\ 0XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX0 | I.9.A. On Foot \ 0XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX0 As with any GTA game there is plenty of things you can do when on foot: 0=========0 | Controls \ 0===========0 Move Around...............................................Left Analog Stick Look Around..............................................Right Analog Stick Move Around.................................................Directional Pad  Run............................................................X Button Jump..........................................................Square Button  Attack....................................................Circle Button Enter Vehicle...............................................Triangle Button Center Camera.....................................................L1 Button Previous Weapon...................................................L2 Button  Target........................................................R1 Button Next Weapon.......................................................R2 Button Look Behind.......................................................R3 Button Pause..........................................................Start Button Change Camera Mode............................................Select Button Zoom In With Sniper Rifle.....................................Square Button Zoom Out With Sniper Rifle.........................................X Button 0---------------------------------------------------------------------------0  - If you hold down the Run button too long, you will tire and have to rest before you can run again. Tapping the button in rhythm will serve to help you run a little longer. The more times you run, the better your stamina will be. You can solve the problem of tiring out by getting the Infinite Run feature which is acquired by successfully completing the Ambulance Mission (detailed later).  - When holding a melee weapon (like a bat) or using your fist, the Attack Button is used to swing at your target. When using Grenades, the same button is used to throw your weapon at the target. The longer you hold, the farther you throw. When holding a gun (like a Pistol) or a heavy weapon (like a Rocket Launcher), you use the Attack Button to shoot. Use the Target Button in conjunction to aim at your enemy. If holding a gun and you are too close to your enemy, you will hit them with the gun instead of firing it. If they are on the ground, you will kick your enemy.  - When holding a gun, you hold down the Target Button target your enemy. Use the Previous Weapon and Next Weapon Buttons to switch between targets. /XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX\ 0XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX0 | I.9.B. In Cars, Motorcycles, and Boats \ 0XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX0 As with all the other GTAs there are plenty of vehicles, both land and water based, to use in Liberty City Stories. From junkers and gang cars to the fanciest sports cars and Police boats. They can all be used here. And, unlike in "Grand Theft Auto III", you can use motorcycles in Liberty City. Very nice for Unique Stunt Jumps and quick
