How to I relieve gang members from duty once they joined me?

I don't want their death on my stats, or lose any respect. Sometimes I
find a guy who wields a bigger gun and I want him to fill in for one of my
empty handed friends.

yeh I'd like to know this too. I've seen the description for PS2
gamepads, but I haven't discovered the PC keypress required (if indeed
it exists). I just get embarassed with them all hanging around saying
'what we doin' CJ'.

Thanks for the replies, guys. I know the game reveals control keys to
you as you do the early missions, but to be honest there is so much new
stuff going on they can easily get forgotten. The manual has one-line
descriptions for the G and H keys and the one for H simply says 'group
control back'. It doesn't say anything about holding the key down. I
was expecting there to be a single keypress then you get a response
from CJ plus the 'gang strength' bar which is what happens when you use
G to pick up gang members.

While we're on the subject, the gang members are not exactly the
sharpest tools in the box. They seem to be able to climb up and over
objects when they want but if CJ jumps over a small wall or obstacle
they often get left bewildered on the other side.

cheers,

I only use my guys for decoys, anyway. Decoys don't need to be smart, they
just need to take divert the hostile fire from me if I get into a jam. And
I drive them myself to the right spot, so they don't get stuck into some
deadend.

I'm not trying to be a smart ass here or anything, but didn't the PC version
come with a manual? All I seem to read are posts about control questions...

The manual is missing probably 50% of the required key mappings. It's
long but not much in it. Mostly descriptions of the stores, bars, and
sports venues.

Type H and then run off and they are relieved. Once they get out of range,
they are relieved from their allegiance to you.

Ther manual is very poor in control content. It's the best packaging I have
ever seen, a real hardbound book that doubles as the DVD case, great job in
packaging, poor job in putting content in the book.

Hold down H and they disperse, as the game tells you (but holding down
G doesn't work, so the game is wrong there).

When I ordered the game from Play.com, the "manual" was described as a
"novella". I was expecting some sort of book with a background story in it.
You know, a story about CJ's time in Liberty City or something like that.

When I saw the manual it had a certain wow factor, it is indeed a properly
bound hardback book. Inside it has loads of pages with tourist information
about San Andreas, and about three pages with "how to play the game"
information. Those pages are tucked in amongst the other stuff, so it's not
easy to look up the controls that you need at any given time.

This game seems to have more different controls for different things than
any other I've seen. I'm getting the hang of it all now, but the learning
curve is slightly steep at the beginning.

That's what I do. When taking an enemy hood I tell them to stay put so I
know that if the enemy come from one direction the posse will hold them
long enough for me to take them out from one direction leaving me free
to come help them on the other side. I don't drive them anywhere by car,
can only take three, so I usually just pick them up on the border to the
hostile turf and use them then.
