Hey everyone, I started to practice and run SA, but I'm having difficulty with the missions "Life's a beach" and "Wrong side of the tracks" and am wondering what I'm doing wrong.

As for life's a beach, I keep having the grove homie step out of the van and closing the door before dropping dead on the floor after shooting him. It doesn't always happen but its 50/50.

For Big Smoke's mission I figured out how to get on the train and I know the Sanchez is hard to control on the train, but when I watch videos of others they seem to have much more control than I have. Is there some kind of trick to at least have some control over the bike?

I've had big smoke get run over multiple times now because I can only drive off from the front of the train instead of the side... All in all pretty frustrating when trying to do Los Santos in one go.

He always steps out of the van after some time. If you're too slow to shoot him, his AI is really weird in that he gets out, immediately goes back in and goes to driver seat. So you can just wait a bit longer and shoot when he's in driver seat, not passenger before exiting van. Obviously that's slower though.

And for train, yes, the bike has a very wonky controlling it. Basically just drive onto train almost fully straight, just slightly to the right, so that you can shoot them without turning, because you can't really adjust your angle on the train

Thanks for the reply. I think I'll just have to practice big smokes mission better then...
As for the dance mission I've uploaded a video to demonstrate what I mean. https:/​/​gofile.​io/​?c=dQFfIH

Oh, judging from the "gang strength-" I assume you don't ditch him. You need to be holding gang de-recruiting button (H for me) when he's getting in. Release it when he's in the van so he's no longer in the gang

Nice thanks man! Seems to work every time now after trying a couple times. But like you said now he steps out and gets back in to sit in the drivers seat. I can deal with that till I get a bit faster though.
