     Icey, whose parser enabled my "San Andreas" walk-through to have active
links not only for the Internet sites that open in separate windows but the
chapter designations, makes navigating this daunting thing a lot easier, too
(thanks again to Icey!).  It"s at the webs site.

  I      Introduction
  A day of in-game time goes by in 48 real-time minutes.
  http://gtaforums.com/topic/591756-day-night-cycle/
  A Schedule Planner in Bobcat Security offices in North Yankton indicates the
Prologue takes place in 2003--not 2004.  The same planner is in Lester"s garment
factory in La Mesa.  The Prologue takes place in Nov./Dec. 2003 and "V" takes
place in Sept./Oct. 2013 so there"s nine years (almost 10) between them.  Mi-
chael and Trevor likewise mention "almost 10 years" during one of their argu-
ments.
  http://gtaforums.com/topic/711748-north-yankton-discussion-20/
  The PC version can be run at 4K.  It"s more detailed than "IV," there"s more
to see underwater than in SA, lightning bolts appear in a thunderstorm, and it
doesn"t have the beige/orange tint of "IV"--me like.
  Lazlow and Fernando are back.
  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lazlow_Jones
  http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2813771/
  Land vehicles don"t seem like boats in a sea of molasses anymore.  It"s more
arcade-like.  Driving a Sanchez over the north hills reminds me of "Motocross
Madness 2."  Land vehicles that are tipped over can be tipped upright pretty
easily with A or D.  (I still think VC mouse and keyboard controls should be an
option to free up the right hand for lean back and lean forward keys for
stunts.)
  Special Skill has taken the place of Adenaline.  Director Mode replaces the
stilllikedressingup code.
  Animals in the game now include not just birds but rabbits, deer, cows, coug-
ars, wild boars, pigs, rats, dogs, cats, stingrays, humpback whales, butter-
flies, and fish.  Your protagonist can be attacked by a dog (if he attacks it or
someone near it), cougar, or shark.  You might have your protagonist drive into
or shoot one of the first two, but have him keep some distance from a shark to
shoot it--Knifing it is difficult and one bite kills.  Franklin gets a pet dog
named Chop he can play with.
  Random encounters have been replaced by 57 random encounters--you need to com-
plete 14 for 100%.  Some encounters are like having Tommy hit a criminal for a
good citizen award in VC.
  Dating/Friends has been pared down to optional Friends.  But the SA skill
system is back.  Lets"s hope someone comes up with another mod to get past it
quickly.  Your abilities are handicapped and you can live with it much of the
game or do boring repetitive clerical things to overcome it.  Who thought that
would be fun?
  The Pacific Ocean is called the Pacific Ocean because the copyright ran out.
  There are beach balls (such as on the beach by the pool by the tennis court

  Personal info:
  I was born on March 3 (the same day as Tobuscus).
  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toby_Turner
  One thing common to my web page walk-throughs and articles is that my efforts
are inclusive, not exclusive.  Walk-throughs aren"t about "Look at me--I"m a
hotshot gamer" but rather to bring as many people as possible in on the game.
The ones on belief in God or not are an overview of both with an eye toward not
wanting needless harm.
  Bill Winstein won the Golden Quill Award for newspaper excellence in 1971,
and his art and cartoons were in the Baseball, Football, and Basketball Halls
of Fame, and a number of local bars and barbershops, like Evangelista"s.  My Dad
was born in Carnegie, Pennsylvania, in 1914, and my Mom, Margaret Ann True, was
born in Council Bluffs, Iowa, in 1923.  Their childhoods lived on in them, and
live on in me.  And that"s bigger than anything in all these PC-choking walk-
throughs of mine combined.
  I"m named after my Mom"s brother Russell Glen True who was a boxer and died in
the Battle of the Bulge in WWII.  Her nickname was Pat--I guess that could use
some explanaton.  Her Dad liked to tell Pat and Mike jokes and nicknamed Margar-
et "Pat" and Mary "Mike."  I guess Mary didn"t like "Mike" so changed "True" to
"Trudy" and became my aunt Trudy, and Mom was called Pat.

  Soapboxers are found when random events become available.  Soapboxers are at
pale blue dots on the radar.  To have a protagonist talk to one have him go near
the person and press E.  The message may be a bit different for each of the
three protagonists (Jesse"s message about his father, for example).
  One soapboxer is Jesse (voice provided by Nikola Wincenc), the Jesus wannabe,
who makes Woodstock-type analogies with New Testament ideas in the northeast
section of Del Perro Pier.

  Jerome (voice provided by Chike Johnson) looks like a member of the Nation of
Islam and preaches a painful death to whoever doesn"t want to join him in Para-
dise.  He"s on the northwest side of Dutch London St. west of Carson Ave., Ran-
cho.  He says his brother Jerome preached in Liberty City which probably refers
to the Jerome that preached across the street from the "IV" save place in South
Bohan and in the prison (when the European-American preacher didn"t appear in
those places).

  The alleged goof of the front of the Tate mansion (of the Manson family mur-
ders), 10050 Cielo Dr., which has been removed and replaced by a different
house, is at the southeast end of Lake Vinewood on Kimble Hill Dr., Vinewood
Hills.  It"s supposedly pointed to by a bloody "1807" on a wall at the east end
of the street.  There are some partiers in the back yard.  (It"s an imaginable
connection but it"s not very clear.  Maybe a loose connection was intended since
it"s too disturbing to be worth bringing up the specifics.)

  Grove Street is probably based on "Spruce Street in Compton because of the
cul-de-sac, the tree related name, and the fact that the Ballas (who are based
on the Bloods Gang) occupy the area.  In real-life, the Tree Top Piru set of the
Bloods occupy the street."

  Pogo the Monkey, the star of an arcade game of GTA "III" and VC, is depicted
on the front of Flickers Comics--a comic book store that"s east of the barber

  A continuation of various things like the WK Chariot Hotel lights that outline
a penis between 11 pm and 12 am in "Vice City" is the pair of tires on the roof
of TIRE NUTS at the north side of Innocence Blvd. and the east side of Power St.
Viewed at the right angle a skyscraper behind them looks like a symbol of a c**k
and the tires are symbols of a pair of b**ls.  A similar impression is made on
your minimap by by the ferris wheel and roller coaster.

  Christopher "Chris" Bellard aka Young Maylay, who provided the voice of C.J.
in "San Andreas," is the cousin of Shawn Fonteno, the voice actor for Franklin
Clinton.
  CJs TOOTHPASTE is found in various locations in "V."
  In "Hood Safari" three bicyclists in green go northwest from the Grove St.
cul-de-sac which refers to the start of GTA "San Andreas."
  There"s an Achievement for "Derailed" called "Better than CJ."  It refers to
"Wrong Side of the Tracks" in which you have C.J. use a Sachez to drive Big
Smoke by a train of Vagos so Big Smoke can shoot them.
  In Lester"s house is a book called "Survillance" by Emily Cross with C.J."s

  Thelma and Louise Easter Egg: have your protagonist go to the south end of the
road shown in brown that extends south from the road shown in white that extends
south from the "Wil" of "Chiliad Mountain State Wilderness" on your paper map
around 7 to 8 pm (1900 to 2000) to see an Easter Egg of the 1991 movie "Thelma
and Louise."
  Behind a convertible with two women are several police cars and a helicopter.
When an officer goes toward the convertible it starts up and drives off the
cliff.  This Easter Egg can be seen from a helicopter or have your protagonist
use a Sniper rifle scope to look southwest from the porch of a nearby cabin at
the dirt road atop a ridge.  (You could also use the Airbreak function of the
Simple Trainer.)

  There are several references to the 1980 movie "The Shining."
  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Shining_%28film%29
  The Overlooked Red Blouson at Binco/Discount Store aka Checkout! is like the
one worn by Jack Torrance (Jack Nicholson) in "The Shining."
  After "Blitz Play" an axe will appear embedded in Floyd"s bedroom door as a
show of Trevor"s violent craziness and a reference to Jack Torrence becoming
violently crazy and going through a door with an axe in "The Shining."
  The hedge maze south of the "e" of "Kortz Center" in Pacific Bluffs on your
paper map of LS & BC refers to the hedge maze in "The Shining."
  Floyd"s apartment is based on Melanie"s apartment in the 1997 movie "Jackie
Brown" by Quentin Tarantin starring Pam Grier.  Pam Grier is the DJ of The Low-
down 91.1 in "V." 
  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Floyd"s_Apartment
  Bishop"s WTF?! on south Vinewood Blvd./east Las Lagunas Blvd., Downtown Vine-
wood is a reference to the android Bishop in the 1986 movie "Aliens" and is
based on Ripley"s Believe It Or Not which it turn refers to the main character
of the movie named Ellen Ripley.
  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Bishop"s_WTF%3F!
  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aliens_%28film%29

  There"s a hatch with a rectangular lit window on the sea floor east of the
northeast center swirl of Davis Quartz on your paper map of LS & BC and a bit
more east than the east side of the island that"s east of "fish" of "Cape Cat-
fish" on the same map.  What sounds like bass or low tom drums can be heard to
beat out Morse Code when a protagonist goes near the hatch.  According to a
poster at gtaforums the code translation is "Hey.  You never call.  How do you
fancy we go bowling?"  This refers to Roman Bellic in GTA "IV."  An Internet
meme was based on Roman persistently calling Niko to ask him to go bowling.

  To avoid having your protagonist die from going near the hatch you can use
the Simple Trainer and give them god mode.  (whatever57010 used the Airbreak--
noclip--function of it to determine there"s nothing behind the hatch.)

  There are four UFOs in the game scenery--three only appear after 100% comple-
tion.
  "GTA 5 - Easter Egg &ndash6 - Flying UFO (100% Completion, Fort Zancudo & Sandy
Shore)" by GTA Series Videos
  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HsS06Ub3Mkc
  The safest way to see them is to use the Airbreak (noclip) function and god
mode of the Simple Trainer.
  http://www.gtagarage.com/mods/show.php?id=27195
  1.  Underwater  An underwater wreck of a UFO is east of the north end of the
biggest island at the north end of the map and north of the little dock that"s
north-northwest of the most northern instance of "Great Ocean Highway" on your
paper map of LS & BC.
  Some think it"s the spaceship Omega says exploded and scattered Spaceship
Parts around the area.
  http://gta-myths.wikia.com/wiki/Sunken_UFO_Wreckage
  2.  Over Fort Zancudo  It"s not far under the height limit north of the "Z"
of "Fort Zancudo" and west of the loop of dirt road by the northeast end of the
fort on your paper map of LS & BC.  One way to see it is to have your protagon-
ist parachute from a Shamal.  It becomes visible when the protagonist is near
it.
  It appears after completing the game to 100%.  At 3:00 am on a small elevator
bunker roof below the UFO is a rotating green light in the shape of a circle
with eight evenly spaced bars extended from the edge of it.  A bright light
comes from above (not up from as high as the spaceship) as if for Michael"s ab-
duction in "Did Somebody Say Yoga?"
  "GTA 5: UFO Abduction Beam/Light Gameplay!!" by WhizL

  If you use the Airbrake function of the Simple Trainer to see inside the
cockpit you see two dark figures seated amid the lights of the controls.

  This UFO has eight pairs of rectangular plates on the outer edge.  "Segregate
and Rearrange" is written on the roof of the cockpit.  One way to rearrange the
letters in "segregate" is to spell "Easter egg."
  It"s thought that this is a prototype for an advanced stealth plane based
upon technology recovered from the crashed UFO.  One mission tells about a sub-
mariner hired to collect something from the bottom of the sea only to die in a
freak "accident."
  If you have a protagonist fly an aircraft near the UFO it emits an EMP (elec-
tromagnetic pulse) which powers down the aircraft.  If you have a protagonist
parachute near the UFO it flings him in the opposite direction and causes him
to lose nearly half his Health. 
  http://gta-myths.wikia.com/wiki/UFO_at_Fort_Zancudo
  3. Over Senora National Park  It"s high overhead of the "Beam Me Up" sculp-
ture at the dirt road north of the "N" of "Senora National Park" and west of
the top of the Parachuting icon which is on the east side of the Grand Senora
Desert on your paper map of LS & BC.
  http://gta-myths.wikia.com/wiki/UFO_at_Beam_Me_Up
  It appears after completing the game 100%.  It"s the same model used for the
crashed UFO, the Mount Chiliad UFO, and in a cutscene for "Did Somebody Say
Yoga?"  If you have a protagonist parachute nearby it pushes him away.
  This UFO has two revolving roofs--the upper one has a windows that reveal
that the lower one has instances of "FIB" written on top.  The Fort Zancudo
UFO, when opened in a model viewer, has humanoid pilots.  The combined impres-
sion is the science fiction of a government/alien "men in black" effort.
  https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Men_in_Black
  http://gta-myths.wikia.com/wiki/UFOs_in_GTA_V
  4. Over Mount Chiliad   It"s south of the viewing stand at the top of Mt.
Chiliad starting at 3:00 am during thunderstorms once you"ve completed the game
100%.  It"s thought to be a government hologram since it also has "FIB" written
on top, doesn"t react to bullets or explosions, and disappears if you send a
protagonist near it.  It reappears if you send the protagonist back to the
viewing stand area but not if you send them far away and back.
  There"s a UFO-shaped glyph under the mountaintop wooden viewing platform and
writing on the side of it says "RETURN WHEN YOUR STORY IS COMPLETE."
  You can enter the code MAKEITRAIN seven times or use the Simple Trainer to
cause a thunderstorm.

  I.2    PC Health
  I.2.a  Clean your disk, disk player, and PC
  Clean your Play disk and use a CD laser lens cleaner disk in your player.
  Turn off your PC and use a can of compressed air and clean out your PC box,
CD/DVD player compartment, and keyboard.  If you spill something into your key-
board, disconnect it, flush it thoroughly with water, and let it dry for a few
days.
  (I"ve seen disk cleaners, laser disk cleaners, and cans of compressed air on
sale at department and drug stores.)

  I.2.b  Get your hard disk drive (HDD) and/or solid state drive (SSD)
           clean and in order
  As is apparent by the fact that I"m writing this walk-through, I"ve finally
built a new computer with an SSD (Samsung Evo 500 GB) for the OS drive.  But I
still use HDDs (for sampling and saving audio projects for a DAW and for stor-
age) so I still keep up with the advice for them.
  At least once a month--even a week--run the Disk Defragmenter for an HDD used
for an OS and after any big use of one used for storage.  Run it after crashes
and after you make any big changes to your HDD used for an OS, too, like after
installing or removing new graphics card drivers or a big game demo or such.
For Windows XP Home Edition, go to Start, All Programs, Accessories, System
Tools, and Disk Defragmenter.
  Even better is Diskeeper, which is what the Windows defragmenter is a scaled
down version of.  I recommend the Professional version--it lets you do a boot
time defragmentation which defragments the Pagefile and Master File Table.
Your other files run in co-ordination with those, but you can"t defragment
those with the Windows defragmenter.
  http://www.diskeeper.com/defrag.asp
  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diskeeper
  For either type of drive used for your OS:
  After using the Internet go to Start, All Programs, Accessories, System
Tools, and use the Disk Cleanup--remove the Temporary Files, Temporary Internet
Files, and Recycle Bin.  The Temporary Internet Files can help you surf the web
faster, but I search it fast enough without them and they can build up into a
huge batch of bytes in no time.
  You can get free software versions of Ad-aware and Spybot.  You might go to
the Downloads section of the Microsoft web site and try their AntiSpyware.
Keep them updated and run them regularly.

  Buy an anti-virus program, keep it updated, and run it regularly.  A current-
ly recommended example via paid subscription is BitDefender.  (It lets you use
Game Mode so it doesn"t run when you play games.)  A recommended free program
is avast!  If you use an antivirus program, only use one and don"t use software
like the two examples I mentioned above this paragraph--it can cause compati-
bility problems.

  I.2.c  Use the latest updates
  On your browser, click Tools and run Windows Update about once a week.  The
tweakguides.com site reports Microsoft updates.
  http://www.tweakguides.com/
  Make sure you have the latest updates for your sound (Creative Labs, ASUS,
etc.) and graphics card (ATI, NVIDEA, possibly Intel, etc.) drivers, mother-
board drivers, DirectX (the Microsoft web site Downloads section), mouse and</span><span id="faqspan-2">
keyboard drivers, firmware, and whatever else you use for your PC you can get
updates for.
  Go to Run, type in "msinfo32," and click OK if you"re not sure what your com-
puter specifics are, and see how they compare with the requirements for comput-
ers given on the bottom flap of the box of the game.  You might want to upgrade
something.
  You could try the same thing except type in "dxdiag," too.
  You can get more extensive results with SiSoftware Sandra Lite, mentioned be-
low in the tweakguides part of this section, by running the various modules it
contains.  You can not only learn what your various PC components are but get
helpful recommendations about changing settings and making upgrades to improve
the performance of your PC.  (I"d talk the recommendations over with an expert
first.)
  http://www.sisoftware.co.uk/

  I.2.d  Turn off unnecessary applications before running the game
  Run a free utility called End-It-All 2 and use the "Close all" button to shut
down other applications before running the game.
  http://www.docsdownloads.com/

  I.2.e  Take-Two Games web site and support
  For technical support for "V" check the support section for the PC "GTA V" at
the Take-Two Games web site.  Go to Take2 Games, Support, Grand Theft Auto: V"
(PC).  They have a page that lets you send an Email to some nice people who of-
fer personal support.  Help them isolate the source of your problem by doing
the other things recommended in this section 1st.
  Try to avoid things that make your game freeze so you have no ability to get
out of the game with the keyboard.  Turning your PC off at the main power but-
ton is bad for your computer, so use the reset button instead at such times.
  You may have to remove a mod because you made an installation mistake or it"s
corrupted due to a faulty download, etc.  My PC has had bad reactions to cer-
tain mods, too, for some reason.  Try getting advice from the creator of the
mod, from GTA Forums web site, etc.  If worse comes to worse, for whatever
reason you may never learn--some unfortunate combination of the mod with some
component or setting of your PC--you may need to just remove it.  Keep backups
of the original files before replacing them with a mod.

  I.2.f  Tweak guides
  The TweakGuides.com web site has various helpful informative guides by Ko-
roush Ghazi:
  http://www.tweakguides.com/
  If you"re like me, and have had a glitch or freeze or stuttering frame rate
now and then and couldn"t afford to pay dozens of dollars every time you had a
question, it"s good to know you"re at least using preventative medicine to give
your computer every chance to work as efficiently as it can.  You"ll get the
best performance out of it for games and maximize the mileage you"ll get out of
that expensive computer hardware.  And if you do need to hire someone, you"ll
be more well-informed when you talk to them.
  A couple of such tips I picked up from "The TweakGuides Tweaking Companion"
there:
  By using SiSoft Sandra Lite (free software, or freeware), you can not only
find out a lot of information about the components of your computer, but get
useful tips on what might work better with a different setting or upgrade.
Sometimes glitches and freezes are due, at least partly, to poor PC perform-
ance--overheating alone can cause such things.
  At the SiSoftware site, click on the icon for the latest version of SiSoft-
ware Sandra, then click to download the shareware (Lite) version, then, below
the column labeled "Lite," click "Download."
  http://www.sisoftware.co.uk/

langx=en
  If you want to learn more about your components and how they compare to oth-
ers at running games, you could go to the Futuremark web site and download a
free version of 3DMark.  It"s a popular benchmarking tool that has been used at
various web sites to get test results of new components.
  http://www.futuremark.com/download/
  I especially recommend you make backups and carefully use the advice given
in:
  TweakGuides Tweaking Companion
  ATI Catalyst
  Nvidia Forceware
  VIA Hyperion FAQ
  Gamer"s Graphics & Display Settings
  It especially focuses on getting good performance out of your PC, and a good
frames per second (fps) rate, etc., for games.  It has special sections for
"Half Life 2 and Source Engine," "Morrowind," "Oblivion," "Bioshock," "Crysis,"
Unreal Tournament 2004," "Far Cry," "F.E.A.R.," "Need for Speed: Most Wanted,"
several "Battlefield" games, and some others.
  To read the "TweakGuides Tweaking Companion," a PDF file, you need a .PDF
file reader.
  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:PDF_readers
  Use System Restore (Start, All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, System
Restore, or Start, Control Panel, Performance and Maintenance, System, System
Restore) if you screw up and aren"t sure how you did it and need to revert to
your old configuration.  You can use System and Security > Free up disk space >
Disk Cleanup to remove all but your previous System Restore point.

  I.2.g  Volume
   You can adjust the volume of the game in the sound section of your Control
Panel.  Keep your sound card driver updated.
  I like to keep a volume control icon in the taskbar in the lower right corner
of my screen as well.  Go to Start, Control Panel, Sounds, Speech, and Audio
Devices, then use any of these three choices--Adjust the system volume or
Change the speaker settings or Sounds and Audio Devices--to bring up the Sounds
and Audio Devices menu.  Check the box by "Place volume icon in the taskbar."
You can adjust your system volume from there, too.

  Thanks to billhitman for recommending a web site that makes an online check
of your computer to see if it can run any of dozens of games:

  I.2.i  PC hardware and software on a budget
  
  For new computer gear, comparison shop for the best quality at the lowest
price by reading reviews.  Check the dates on them because it"s a fast-changing
field.  Putting the name of a graphics card or such and "review" in the Google
search engine makes a lot of reviews turn up.  Some of the review sites in-
clude:

  Then use price comparison sites such as Google Shopping, with prices sorted
from low to high, or Amazon.

  ...and you want something that"s cheaper still, use eBay:
  http://www.ebay.com/
  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ebay
  I recommend eBay in my walk-throughs as a place I"ve gotten some of my games
for a real bargain.  Make sure to check the dealer"s ads for what"s included
and the dealer"s reputation of reliability.  Be VERY careful about that if you
go for computer gear that way.
  There are sometimes sales on games you can download at the Steam and gog.com
sites.  Some older games are updated on those sites to run on a recent OS.
