1. How To...
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
    ++++++++++++++++++++
    + 1a. FLY THE DODO +
    ++++++++++++++++++++

-Take off using the same runway as the jets that are taking off and 
landing. You don't have to worry about hitting them since they are not 
solid.
-Start at the end of the runway where the Dodo is found next to the 
helicopter.
-Line up with the broken line on the runway. Push the X button and hold 
the left stick forward. Look at the tail of the plane, when you start 
to see sparks, let the stick return the neutral position. You should 
lift off of the ground.
-Slightly tap the left stick forward to level out the plane. You will 
need to do this constantly during flight. If the nose gets too high, 
you will stall. An easy way to keep it level is when you see red above 
the wings, tap the stick forward.  You shouldn't need to pull the stick 
back (only for advanced flying.)
-Don't panic! The plane will look like it is going to come down but it 
won't, as long as you keep the plane level.
-To turn, slightly tap the left stick to the left or right, then 
slightly tap it the other direction again to straighten the plane out. 
Do not turn sharply...tap tap tap the left stick. I suggest turning to 
the right and flying over the water to get the hang of the plane. Stay 
somewhat close the coastline until you get used to flying and watch out 
for the unique jumps.  Don't fly too far out to sea because the game 
will lock up or your plane will disappear from the screen or both.

*NOTE*: You do not have to hold the X button during flight.  I believe 
holding it will slightly increase your air speed.  You will need to 
release it during certain landings.

    ++++++++++++++++++++
    + 1b. FLY THE TANK +
    ++++++++++++++++++++

In order to fly the tank you have to input the "Flying Car" code:
Right, R2, Circle, R1, L2, Down, L1, R1
A message will confirm the correct entry.
Any car you drive will now have the ability to glide. The problem is 
that once they are off of the ground, there is nothing to give them 
forward momentum so they will only glide for a short time.

To fly the tank, you will use the cannon as continuous forward 
momentum.
-Using the right stick, rotate the turret so it is facing behind you.
-Line up on the same runway used for the Dodo and press X to start 
moving. 
-Repeatedly press the circle button to fire the cannon. I suggest 
firing about one every second or one every two seconds.  Release the X 
button.
-You will soon begin to lift off. Continue to fire and fly like you 
would the Dodo. You will need to keep the tank somewhat level, but this 
is not as critical as with the Dodo. Because you have a strong force 
pushing you, you will be able to fly higher than with the Dodo.
-The tank does not turn as well as the Dodo. I have many tanks sitting 
in the water around Liberty City from turning too sharply and going 
into a death spin. You should use great care turning this beast.

*NOTE*: You can take off with the tank in Staunton Island using the 
Callahan Bridge. Start a little past 1/4 way to Portland, turn around 
and go with traffic, away from Portland.  You will fly out over the 
water towards the airport.
In Portland, use the cement area on the northern edge of the island 
next to the water.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
2. Tricks
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    + 2a. WALK THROUGH WALLS +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++

-Get a taxi or similar car.
-Park it perpendicular to the wall you want to walk through.  It should 
look like a "T".  Make sure it is touching the wall.

VIEW FROM ABOVE:
________
________   <--- wall
  |  |
  |  |
  |__|     <--- car

OR TRY AN ANGLE:
________
________   <--- wall
  \  \
   \  \    <-- car
    \__\


-Input the "Speed Up Game Play" code TWICE:
Triangle, Up, Right, Down, Square, L1, L2
-Run at the spot where the car and the wall meet.  You should go 
through the wall.  You may have to reposition the car a few times.
-When you get through the wall input the "Slow Down Game Play" code 
TWICE:
Triangle, Up, Right, Down, Square, R1, R2

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    + 2b. DRIVING UP THE DAM +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++

-Enable the "Better Handling" code:
R1, L1, R2, L1, Left, R1, R1, Triangle
-Go to the base of the Cochrane Dam. To the left is a wall that you can 
drive right up.  You hold R2 to look to the right and when you get to 
the top, turn to the right and you will be at the top of the dam 
building.

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    + 2c. LOOKING THROUGH WALLS  +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

(**Courtesy Of Psycopsy**)

-Walk up to a wall until you stop.
-TAP down to turn around without walking.
-Enable the M16 or Sniper rifle and hold R1 to look through the sight.
-Use the left stick to rotate around toward the wall.
-You should now be able to look through it.

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++
    + 2d. LOCKING CAR DOORS +
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++

(**Courtesy Of Psycopsy**)

There are two ways to "lock" car doors.

1.
-Enter the "Slow Down Game Play" code twice:
Triangle, Up, Right, Down, Square, R1, R2
-Neither you nor the police can get out of a car.  You can cause havoc 
and unless a foot officer comes, the police can not bust you.
-Enter the "Speed Up Game Play" code at least once to be able to exit a 
vehicle:
Triangle, Up, Right, Down, Square, L1, L2

2.
-When someone tries to get into your car (police, hooker car jacker) 
hold either R2 or L2 depending on the side of the car that they are 
trying to enter.  If they are coming at you from your right, hold R2.  
If from your left, hold L2. 

*NOTE*: You need to have an Uzi in order for this to work.  This is not 
a permanent trick, if you let go of the R2 or L2 button, the person 
will get you.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
3. Hard To Reach Places
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
     
    +++++++++++++++++
    + 3a. SEA CAVES +
    +++++++++++++++++

There isn't much to do there.  You can shoot down the Dodo that flies 
over which gives you an instant 4 star wanted level.  There is one area 
that has an opening that looks like a cave.  The other "openings" are 
cracks between the rocks that you can fall through.  You can shoot down 
police helicopters as they come after you. 

To get there:
-Get a boat near Asuka's place.
-Drive north until you get out of the "harbor".
-Turn right and soon you will see a buoy and then a group of rocks.  Go 
past these rocks to the next large group just past another buoy.
-Drive around the right side of the rocks until you see a big flat 
spot.
-Land the boat here and get out.
-The opening is to your left (the water is to your back.)

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    + 3b. THE "YOU WERENT SUPPOSED TO BE ABLE TO GET HERE..." SIGN +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

This message was left from the programmers to let us know that we found 
an area that we weren't supposed to.  There may be two of these signs, 
but I only know of one.

To get there:
-Go to the enclosed parking area that is across from the front of the 
Love Media Building.  It is where you do the "Kingdom Come" mission for 
King Courtney.  There should be a few cars parked there.
-Look at the buildings to the south.  There should be many fire escapes 
on the side of the buildings.  This is the wall you need to go over.
-Get a tall vehicle like a Yankee or a Mule and park it in front of the 
trash bins that are lined up against the wall.
-Use the Karuma that is right there to jump on top of the truck.
-Hop over the wall.  You should be able to find the sign once you are 
over the wall.
-To get out, there is a ramp that will allow you to get back to the 
other side.

*NOTE*: You can try to jump the wall using the "Better Handling" code
R1, L1, R2, L1, Left, R1, R1, Triangle, Right, X
Push the L3 button while driving to jump.

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    + 3c. CATALINA'S HELICOPTER ("THE EXCHANGE" MISSION) +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

This will allow you to get to Catalina's helicopter before she takes 
off.  You will use the "Driving up the dam" trick listed above.
-When the cut scene ends, go straight across the bridge to the 
industrial area of Shoreside Vale.  Turn left at the first 
intersection, take the first left you come to (3rd intersection), then 
next left after that.  You should be on a long straight away that will 
take you under the bridge that you just crossed.  Follow this road 
until you come to the big orange dam building.
-When you approach the building turn to the left and you will see a 
slanted wall.
-Follow the "Driving Up The Dam" steps above.
-When you get to the top you will see the place where Maria is being 
held.  Catalina's helicopter is at the far end of the building. 

    ++++++++++++++++++++++
    + 3d. THE GHOST TOWN +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++

You will need to fly the Dodo or the tank here.  You cannot get there 
with a boat.

To get there:
-Take off from the airport using the same runway as the jets, *BUT* go 
in the opposite direction (away from Staunton Island).
-When you lift off, turn to the right and follow the coastline.
-When you get past the dam, the coastline will curve to the right. *Be 
careful, the Dodo sometimes flies erratically here* Most of the hills 
here are not solid. Soon you will see a blank spot in the water.  This 
is near where the Ghost Town will appear.
-When you get close enough, the buildings will pop up.
-The buildings are not solid so you can fly through them.  Apparently 
there are a few solid areas near the dumpsters, but I have not 
confirmed this.

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    + 3e. THE UNFINISHED TUNNELS +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

These are the unfinished tunnels that are near the Cartel Mansion and 
the Cochrane Dam in Shoreside Vale.  There is an invisible wall between 
you and the "outside". I was able to use the sniper rifle to get some 
stars.  It seems that the FBI won't go to the tunnel.  

To get there:
-Follow the directions above to get to the Ghost Town.
-As you approach the Ghost Town, turn to the right towards the 
hillside.
-If you look carefully to your left or your right you will see a brown 
half-circle in the hillside.  This is your target.

*NOTE*: The one on the right is harder to see.
 
-Make sure you have enough altitude.  If not, turn around and circle 
until you do.
-Release the X button to decrease your airspeed.
-Try to hit the right side of the left tunnel or the left side of the 
right tunnel.  You may bounce to the side and off the ledge into the 
water.  You just have to keep trying until you get it.

*NOTE*: On a few occasions where I bounced off the ledge, I was able to 
recover and resume flying.  More often than not however, I ended up in 
the water.

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    + 3f. THE ROOF OF KENJI'S CASINO +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

This is the highest roof of the casino, not the helipad that is on the 
lower rooftop.  There are no stairs to get here.  It is possible to get 
up there with a car.

To get there:
-Using the Dodo, take off from the airport using the same runway as the 
jets.  You should take off going toward Staunton Island.  As you 
approach Staunton Island, turn to the right and follow the coastline 
past the Love Media building.

*NOTE*: This next step may not be absolutely necessary, but it was the 
only way I had success.

-Fly past the casino toward Portland and the Atlantic Quays area.
-Before you reach Portland, turn to the left and basically U-turn back 
toward the casino. (The reason for this is because the northern end of 
the casino roof is hollow and you will fall through. This way you will 
hopefully come to a stop away from this hollow area.)
-As you approach the casino, release the X button to slow your air 
speed.
-When you get to the "right spot" pull back on the left STICK.  Since 
you released the X button you should stall and fall down onto the roof. 
(If you don't release the X button you may do a loop when you pull back 
and blow the landing.)

*NOTE* I can't really describe the "right spot" where you should pull 
back. It depends on how fast you are approaching and your altitude.

-When you hit the roof, mash the circle button, R1, and the triangle 
button to hopefully stop and get out before the Dodo rolls or falls 
off.
-Be careful of the hollow areas: Northern end and eastern side where 
you enter during the cut scenes.

To get there with a car:
(**Courtesy of Apoc13**)

-Enter the "Better Handling" code:
R1, L1, R2, L1, Left, R1, R1, Triangle
-Enter the "Slow Down Game Play" code:
Triangle, Up, Right, Down, Square, R1, R2 (you can input this code 
twice if you want.)
-Starting on the north-west side of the casino, drive towards the black 
angled roof.
-Push L3 to jump the car up onto the roof.
-Turn to the left towards the edge of the roof.
-Quickly make a U-turn and drive towards the top of the building.
-Push L3 again to jump to the next section of the roof.
-You can now exit the car and jump onto the rooftop.
-You can also drive or jump the car over the ledge onto the rooftop.

*NOTE:* Be careful of the northern end of the roof, it is not solid.


    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    + 3g. THE POLICE HELIPAD +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++

This is the helipad that is on top of the police building in Staunton.  
It is a good sniping spot but there is no protection from the 
helicopters (who obviously don't take off from here).

To get there:
1.	Using the Dodo:
Take off from the airport using the same runway as the jets.  You 
should take off going toward Staunton Island.  As you approach Staunton 
Island, turn to the right and follow the coastline past the Love Media 
building and the casino.
-When you get to the casino turn slightly to the left and you should 
see the red H.
-As you approach the helipad, release the X button to slow your air 
speed.
-When you get to the "right spot" pull back on the left STICK.  Since 
you released the X button you should stall and fall down onto the roof. 
(If you don't release the X button you may do a loop when you pull back 
and blow the landing.)

*NOTE* I can't really describe the "right spot" where you should pull 
back. It depends on how fast you are approaching and your altitude.
-When you hit the roof, mash the circle button, R1, and the triangle 
button to hopefully stop and get out before the Dodo rolls or falls 
off.

2.	Using a car: (**Courtesy Of Five Star RVD**)

*NOTE* I have only been successful making the first jump using a 
Stinger and an Esperanto.

-Start on the lower road that is to the east of the casino, heading 
north.
-Enable the "Better Handling" code (R1, L1, R2, L1, L, R1, R1, 
Triangle) and the "Slow Down Game Play" code (Triangle, U, R, D, 
Square, R1, R2) once.
-Drive north until you see the grassy hill on your left.  There should 
be a guardrail (for the street above) at the top of this little grassy 
hill.  There is a tree that is right next to the guardrail.  This is 
the last tree before the grassy hill becomes a concrete wall.
-Drive up the grassy hill and slightly to the left of the tree.  Press 
L3 to jump right before you hit the guardrail.
-If done correctly you should bounce up towards the building that is 
right in front of you.
-When the car's wheels hit the building, press L3 to jump again.  This 
will send you up higher and hopefully onto the roof of the first 
building.
-Once on the first building, position the car so it is facing north 
(the helipad will be to your left). Get a good running start and press 
L3 to jump onto the next building.
-Once on the second building, position the car so it is facing south 
(the helipad will now be on your right).
-Back the car up so it is in the northeast corner of the second 
building.
-Hit the gas and when you are about half way across the roof turn to 
the right and press L3 at the edge of the building to jump onto the 
helipad.

*NOTE:* An alternate way to do the first jump is to NOT enable the 
"Slow Down Game Play" code and NOT press L3 once the tires hit the side 
of the building.  To do this you must time your first jump a little 
late so you hit the guardrail as you are jumping.  This throws you up 
and hopefully onto the building.


    +++++++++++++++++++
    + 3h. THE STADIUM +
    +++++++++++++++++++

This is where the Liberty City uuuhhhh... team plays the Beavers.  The 
grass is not solid, but the ground below it is.  You can see above the 
grass by staying in the Dodo.
There are three ways to get into the stadium.
1. Use the "Walk Through Walls" trick described above.
2. Flying in.
3. Jumping a car in.

To fly there:
-Take off from the airport, using the same runway as the jets.  You 
should take off going toward Staunton Island.
-Turn left and fly over the statue and subway entrance that is found 
near the front of the airport.
-Fly between the billboard and the struts for the lift bridge.
-It will look like you are going to hit the road, but if done 
correctly, you should clear everything and be heading toward the 
stadium.
-After the bridge has been cleared, release the X button.
-The stadium lights are not solid so don't worry about them.  When you 
are over the stadium wall, pull back on the left stick.  This will 
stall the Dodo.
-Be careful to stay away from the area near the steps that are going up 
to the main entrance to the stadium.  There is a hole here that will 
drop you outside, near the steps.

To jump a car there:
(**Courtesy of AJGoku9**)
-Get an Esperanto.
-Enable the "Better Handling" code (R1, L1, R2, L1, L, R1, R1, 
Triangle).
-Drive to the parking lot across the street from the stairs that lead 
to the stadium gates.
-Enable the "Slow Down Game Play" code (Triangle, U, R, D, Square, R1, 
R2) once to jump higher. (**Courtesy of Psy**)
-Drive through the parking lot, across the street, and up the steps 
slightly to the left of the gates.
-When you are about 3/4 of the way up the steps, push L3 to jump.  If 
timed correctly, the Esperanto should hit the edge of the wall and land 
on it.
-You can now explore the wall and find the holes that will drop you 
into the bottom of the stadium.

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    + 3i. THE PAN-LANTIC BUILDING +
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

This is the construction area near the Staunton Island hideout.  It is 
possible to get to the floor where you see the cut scenes with 
Catalina, Miguel, Asuka and Maria.

To get there:
-Take off from the airport, using the same runway as the jets.  You 
should take off going toward Staunton Island.
-Turn left and fly over the statue and subway entrance that is found 
near the front of the airport.
-Fly between the billboard and the struts for the lift bridge.
-It will look like you are going to hit the road, but if done 
correctly, you should clear everything and be heading toward the 
stadium.
-Release the X button and turn slightly to the right and head for the 
green Pan-Lantic building.
-Make sure you have enough altitude to hit the lowest brown band going 
around the building.  This is an open area that you can walk around in.
-Fly into that brown band on either side of the cable that is holding 
the box.
-Exit the Dodo.

    + 3j. THE LIGHTHOUSE +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++

The Lighthouse near Salvatore's House in Portland.  There is nothing to 
do there and you can't get inside.  When you land on it, you must 
constantly run or you will slip off.  It is possible to get under the 
lighthouse (inside the rocks).

To get there:
-Using the Dodo, take off from the airport using the same runway as the 
jets.  You should take off going toward Staunton Island.  As you 
approach Staunton Island, turn to the right and follow the coastline 
past the Love Media building and the casino.
-Continue flying over the water along the coast of Portland. (You can 
fly over Portland, but you have to be careful of the unique jumps that 
will end your flight.)
-When you get close to the Lighthouse, release the X button.
-Crash into the lighthouse.  When you get out, keep running or you'll 
slowly slip into the water.

-To get under the lighthouse, continuously ram the rocks on the eastern 
side.
-The boat should begin to sink in the water and push through the rocks.
-Continue to hold X and turn the boat from left to right.

*NOTE:* You may need to enter the health code (R2, R2, L1, R1, left, 
down, right, up, Left, down, right, up) to keep the boat from blowing 
up.

-To get out, ram the rocks in the same area where you got in. (**Thanks 
to moneymangodfb for this tip)

    + 3k. THE CEDAR RIDGE OBSERVATORY +
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

The observatory is found in Shoreside Vale, north of the Cartel 
Mansion.  As far as I know, it is inaccessible by foot or car.  I don't 
believe that the Dodo can get enough altitude to get there either.  
That means the only way is to use the tank.  Unfortunately, the 
observatory is not solid so you can't land there.

To get there:
-Using the flying tank codes listed above, take off from the airport 
using the same runway as the jets, *BUT* go in the opposite direction 
(away from Staunton Island).
-When you lift off, gently turn to the right and follow the coastline.
-Continue to ease the tank to the right and fly over the Cochrane Dam.  
At this point, stop firing the cannon, the tank will glide.
-You will see the observatory, steer the tank into it and you will go 
right through and end up in the water near the Ghost Town.

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    + 3l. THE LOVE MEDIA BUILDING +
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

This is the rooftop where you chat with Donald Love.  There is a nice 
Asian garden and a pond.  You can see his treadmill and the empty box 
from "Love's Disappearance".

To get there:
-Make sure you know which building is the Love Media Building.  It has 
a distinct exterior pattern.
-Using the flying tank codes listed above, as well as the "Better 
Handling" code (R1, L1, R2, L1, Left, R1, R1, Triangle) take off from 
the airport using the same runway as the jets.
-Turn very slightly to the right and head towards the Love Media 
Building.
-You will need to level out the tank and stop firing the cannon a 
little before you get to the building.  Glide the tank towards the 
rooftop and hit the brakes as soon as you touch the building.

    + 4a. BUM RUSH +
    ++++++++++++++++

Ever want to see a bunch of bums wandering around in a tunnel?

How to do it:
-Get a truck of some sort.  The Bobcat that is parked at the gas 
station works well.
-Drive into the Porter Tunnel near 8 Ball's bomb shop.
-Stop in front of the bums that are standing around in a circle.
-Get onto the roof of the truck and the bums will all walk away.
-Walk down onto the hood of the truck and four more will drop down from 
the roof of the tunnel.
-Repeat.

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    + 4b. GARAGE WITH WALK-THROUGH DOOR +
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

No need to use a garage door opener here.

How to do it:
-In Portland drive to the sawmill and take the street that is to the 
south.  You will see a street that is like a large "U".  There is a 
median that has trees to the left of this "U" street.  This area is 
considered the Atlantic Quays.
-The first garage is brown and has a blue door.  This is the one, just 
drive or walk through the door.

*NOTE*: The garage is on the opposite end of the street from the club 
where you take Maria in the "Chaperone" mission.

-Warning! The police can and will follow you in there.

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    + 4c. GARAGE WITH WALK-AROUND DOOR  +
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

(**Courtesy of Psy**)

It is possible to get inside the garage where you finish the "Escort 
Service".

How to do it:
-Go to the garage where you complete the "Escort Service" mission.
-Walk to either the left or the right side of the door.  There is a gap 
there that you can walk through.
-Once inside, use the M16, Sniper Rifle or the Rocket Launcher to look 
around.
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    + 4d. INSIDE JOEY'S GARAGE +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

You can go inside and look around at the place where the cut scenes 
take place.

How to do it:
-Use the "Walk Through Walls" trick.
-You can do it almost anywhere on the building except the blue doors on 
the northwest side of the building (opposite the side where the "blue 
spot" appears to accept missions.) 
-Beware of holes inside the building.

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    + 4e. THE EMERGENCY VEHICLES SHIP +
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

It is possible to get inside the ship where the emergency vehicles 
crane delivers the cars.

How to do it:
-Use the Dodo to land on the top deck of the ship.
-Walk to the side of the ship and fall down to the next deck.
-This deck is not solid so you will fall through.
-If you are lucky, you will land inside the ship on the side.

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    + 4f. POLICE CAR INSIDE THE BUILDING +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

It is possible to have a police car trapped inside the bank building 
that is across the street from your Staunton Island hideout.

How to do it:
-From the entrance to your hideout, get your wanted level up.  I don't 
know how many stars are required, but I got 4.
-Look across the street you will see a police car trying to get through 
the wall.
-You can either use the "Decrease Wanted Level" code (R2, R2, L1, R2, 
Up, Down, Up, Down, Up, Down) or bribes to get the police off your 
back.
-If you go to the front door of the building (the intersection near the 
construction area), the police car should be there.
-Get a star and the cops will get out of the car and try to get you 
through the wall.

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    + 4g. ROOF OF THE MAYOR'S HOUSE +
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

It is possible to get yourself and a car onto the roof of a building in 
Staunton.  The building is mistakenly called the Mayor's House.  This 
is not the Mayor's office shown on the map.  This seems to be another 
good sniping place.  If you get into the hidden opening, the helicopter 
cannot shoot you.

How to do it:
-The building is identified by two billboards that are right next to 
it.  One is a "Punk Noodles" sign and the other is "Fat Burger Kid" 
sign.

*NOTE*: If you are on the Callahan Bridge coming from Portland to 
Staunton, you will see the billboards as you come off of the bridge. 
OR 
From the hideout: 
Turn right, drive to the first street past the park (the street becomes 
the Callahan Bridge). The house is directly in front of you, the 
billboards are to your left. 


-Get a Stinger or a Banshee and wedge it between the billboards and the 
building.
-The car should start to bounce on its own.  If it stops, move it 
slightly forward until it starts bouncing again.
-Eventually the car will appear on the roof.
-Mash Square, R1 and Triangle to exit the vehicle as soon as possible.
-You can get inside by finding the hidden opening on the north side of 
the roof (you can't get to the ground. You "float" above the floor.)

    ++++++++++++++++++++++
    + 4h. THE UNDERWORLD +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++

There are a few different areas of the Underworld, which means that 
there are a few ways to get there.  They are not always connected to 
each other.  In the first Underworld you can run around under buildings 
and streets. If you get the police after you they usually can't shoot 
you unless you come up from the ground.

How to do it:
1. 
-Using the Dodo, take off from the airport using the same runway as the 
jets.  You should take off going toward Staunton Island.
-Fly straight and when you approach Staunton Island you will see a 
building to the right that has an alcove.
-Fly the Dodo into the ledges on either side of this alcove.  You 
should fall into the building.
-Exit the Dodo.  You should se a big black "wall".
-Walk into this wall and you should fall down another level.
-You can now run around under the buildings and streets.
-If you go up the slope your head will appear above the street. Be 
careful not to go too far up or you will pop completely out.

2.
-Follow the steps above to get to the Ghost Town.
-When you se the big blank area, dive down into it.
-Repeatedly push the Triangle button.
-If you are lucky, you will land in the Underworld and on top of the 
Porter tunnels.

-From the hospital in Staunton, get the Bobcat that is parked in the 
hospital parking lot.
-Go to the blue door that is next to the pay phones where you appear 
after dying.
-Do the "Walk Through Walls" trick listed above.
-You should fall then land on top of the Porter Tunnels.

4.
(**Courtesy of batboy5000**)
-Go to the airport.
-Find the two billboards that are near the steps going up to the statue 
(you find a package there)
-Go around to the back of the billboards.
-Walk into the crack between the billboards. You should fall onto the 
top of the subway.

*NOTE:* You may have to do this a few times in order to land on the 
subway tunnel.

5. 
(**Courtesy of sk8dav**)
-Get a boat from the slips near Asuka's place.
-Drive the boat north.
-To your left, you will pass two coves.
-Soon after the second cove, to your left, you should see a small area 
where the grass comes down to the water.
-SLOWLY drive the boat into this "grassy area".
-You will go through the land and into an underground area.

*NOTE:* There is a "hole" in the middle that will drop you and the boat 
onto a Porter Tunnel.

-You can carefully drive the boat around the edge of the hole to 
explore the area.

6.
-Go to the subway and wait for the train.
-When it stops, go to the front car and press Triangle.
-You should "levitate" into the train.
-Press Triangle again to exit the train.
-You will now be above the train.
-You can jump to get on top of the tunnel.

    +++++++++++++++++++++
    + 4i. FLOATING CARS +
    +++++++++++++++++++++

From time to time you will see cars floating around Liberty City.  This 
is usually a random occurrence that happens most often in Portland near 
the hideout.  The area of the street that dips down is where you will 
see the floating cars. There are two ways to create a hovering car.

How to do it:

*NOTE*: You have to have completed the EV Crane to do this.

-Get a Yankee or a Mule.
-Go to the EV Crane and select the FBI car.
-Park the Truck at the spot where the EV Crane drops the cars off. 
(Centered in the yellow stripes and lined up with the blue "bin".)
-If done correctly, the FBI car should be resting on top of the truck.
-Get into the truck and drive away.
-The FBI car will be floating in mid-air.

Use the Lift Bridge to make cars float: (**Courtesy Of thekosmicfool 
part 2**)
-Go to the bridge and stop on the side of the lifting section that will 
block traffic and make the blocked cars stop ON the lifting section.
-You will keep your car OFF of the lifting section.
-When the bridge goes up, the cars will bounce and when they get high 
enough, they will drive away...floating.

To see cars driving in mid air:
-From your hideout in Portland, go right.
-Taking the left-hand lanes, go to the bottom of the hill.
-If you have a car, park it on the side of the road that is closest to 
the buildings. Make sure it is off of the road.
-If you are facing your hideout, go to the right hand lane.  Cars 
should spawn and stop because you are in the road.  Look back and 
hopefully you will see a car in the air.
-If after multiple tries and the cars are not floating, run onto the 
small hill that is on the opposite side of the road as the buildings.  
Then run back into the street.
-You may need to try different parts of this area to get the cars to 
float.


    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    + 4j. INSIDE THE STAUNTON ISLAND POLICE STATION +
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

It is possible to get inside the police building.  Be careful because 
there is a hole on there that will warp you outside.

How to do it:
-Get a police car and get past the gates to the back of the building.
-Exit the car and face the building.
-Go to the left side of the building.  There will be a break where the 
little wall and the building meet.
-Go through the break to the side of the building.
-Turn to the right and you will walk through the wall.


    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    + 4k. DRIVING A BLOWN UP CAR +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Ever want to drive around in a car that has been blown up?  Well now 
you can!

How to do it:
-Step in front of a car that is driving.  You should be facing the 
driver.

*NOTE*: Practice with a Taxi, they are easiest to do this with.
Use the "Slow Down Game Play" code for more time to put in codes:
Triangle, Up, Right, Down, Square, R1, R2 (**Courtesy Of s kalb**)

-Position yourself so you are slightly to the driver's side of the car.
-Input the "Blow Up All Cars" code:
L2, R2, L1, R1, L2, R2 Triangle, Square, Circle, Triangle, L2, L1
-QUICKLY input the health code:
R2, R2, L1, R1, Left, Down, Right, Up, Left, Down, Right, Up
-If done correctly, you should get inside the car even though it has 
been blown up.  The health code should put out the fire, but I 
sometimes have to input it twice.

*NOTE*: You can take the car to the Pay -N- Spray.  The car will still 
be blown up, but it will now have all of its wheels.


    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    + 4l. STANDING DEAD PERSON   +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

(**Courtesy of SSX001**)
Sometimes you can't keep a good man (or woman) down.

How to do it:
-Enter the "Speed Up Game Play" code TWICE:
Triangle, Up, Right, Down, Square, L1, L2
-Get in a car (a fast one works well) and run down some peds.
-Eventually you will hit one who will not fall down dead...but they 
WILL be dead.

*NOTE:*
The police do not take kindly to this so be ready for them to come 
after you.

-The dead person will not be solid so you can walk or drive through 
them.
-Soon they will disappear.


    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    + 4m. EASY VIGILANTE MISSION +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    + 4n. TAXI MISSIONS IN ANY CAR +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

(**Courtesy of Toni Cipriani**)
If you have ever wanted to do taxi missions in a Banshee or a 
Dodo...look no further.

How To Do It:
-Get into a taxi.
-Press and hold R3 to begin the activation of the taxi mission. (It 
won't actually activate until you release R3)
-While holding R3, exit the taxi.

*NOTE:* It seems to be easier to control "The Guy" with the D-pad while 
holding R3.

-Enter any other car.
-Release R3.
-You will now be able to do taxi missions in the car you entered.

*NOTE:* You can not do the other missions (Vigilante, Ambulance, or 
Fire) using this trick.

*NOTE:* This may mess up your current game by not allowing you to do 
taxi missions in a taxi or permanently leaving a pink dot on your 
radar.  Use with caution.


    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    + 4o. LAUNCH AN INFERNUS +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++

(**Courtesy Of Kenshiro**)
There is no real point to this except that it is pretty cool.

How To Do It:
-Get an Infernus.
-Go to the airport and drive to the area where there is a police car 
parked behind a building near the helipad.
-Drive to the narrow set of stairs (not the wide set).
-Position the Infernus so it is facing away from the stairs, but lined 
up with them.  Drive forward a little bit.
-Hold L2 and R2 to see the back view and reverse towards the stairs.  
You should drive backward up the steps and get stuck at the top.
-When the car stops, hit Triangle to exit.
-The car will stay on the stairs and begin to rev up.
-The wheels will spin and sparks will start to fly.
-Soon it will rocket away, fly off of the bump and into the water.


    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    + 4p. CHANGE THE CINAMATIC CAMERA +
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    + 4q. GET TO SHORESIDE VALE EARLY +
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

(**Courtesy of Wolfman**)
Yes there is a way to get to Shoreside before doing all of the missions 
on Staunton.

How To Do It:
-Make sure you have 100 armor and 100 health.
-Go into the subway and make your way along the tracks until you see 
the message that you are in Shoreside Vale.
-Wait until a train is coming and run towards it so you hit it head-on.
-Just before it hits you move slightly toward the wall closest you so 
you are between the train and the wall.
-When the train goes by, you will hopefully fall into blue hell and 
land in Shoreside Vale.

*NOTE:* This doesn't always work the first time.
