Is Pool a sport? Cos you can play that as well! (And if Pool is a sport
does that also mean Darts & Snooker are as well?........I spose they
are.........cant wait for televised Bar Billiards championships !)

They do!?!?

How very odd, I might have to check all the sites I know of in the game
to see if it's just one or all of them. Due to sheer boredom (Can't
believe I'd ever say that about GTA:SA) I went from one to the other to
beat my record.

Perhaps the basketball is just doing a non-spawning trick like some of
the vehicles do.

It is yeah and I suppose we'll also have to include the Ammu-Nation
shooting range as a sporting event too, as a lot of people seem to
think that's a sport.

And base jumping/parachuting/skydiving/free falling, whatever you wanna
call it is classed as an "Extreme Sport", along with BMX.

Anyone think Rockstar are trying to take our minds off killing sprees
by making CJ an athlete?


Cheers,
Rob

And of course, the one, that has been at least since GTA III:
Car racing!

Haven't seen a basketball in months, and someone else in here confirmed
there is indeed a bug. No idea what triggered it. Someday, when I play
through again, I'll keep an eye on the problem and see if I can figure it
out.

Have you saved your game at Madd Doggs mansion?

There is a bug which prevents basketballs from spawning when you save
your game at the mansion. It has happened to me. I also suspect that
it triggers the bug that stops you from working out at the gym.

I have friends that have successfully saved at the mansion,
no problems...I haven't, from glitch paranoia.....
Also, a careful balance of all activities, plus not maxing on muscle
all the time, I have yet to lose basketballs or the ability to play.
Same with pool, no problemas.
Had the workout glitch first play-through, now balance everything.
Not to much muscle, not too fat, etc.
96% finished
Can have lap-dances as well. I remember that hanging up the Game
before too.

Loading the Pig Pen strip club in Los Santos always makes my game hang
and I've got no idea why. It doesn't even get as far as loading the
interior, so it makes me wonder if this club is a Police-only affair
that requires CJ to be wearing the cop uniform.

The Las Venturas strip club works okay though for some reason.


Cheers,
Rob

Apparently there's two to do, but I've done the one which is based near
the lighthouse in south-western Los Santos.

The other is on the small beach with the pier that has the wheelchair on it,
N of LS.

I think both are weekends only. Check the day of the week. (L1?)
