  • Hello, I am here to say my theory and analysis about the MALE01 ped. So, let's start basic, he's a place holder pedestrian, Bobcat and Train driver. However, if you were to load your game and he would take place of a, let's say for an example, FAM1 member, that would happen because the game didn't load fully the FAM1 model, which explains why he can spawn as a gangster, police officer, robber, etc... When ulown00b uploaded his two-part video I was skeptical, it is possible the placeholder happened for him, or he just used an IMG editor (IMG Editor 2.0, Alci's IMG Editor) and replaced the Ballas model for the MALE01 model, I may be wrong but that is just my theory.

    • I mean, it does sound reasonable - he is after, MALE01 - which I guess you could say is the "first ped", so yeah.

    • First time in GMW history that someone other than I recognizes what MALE01 is for :).

      But not only is MALE01 a place holder pedestrian, he's also omnipresent in the game's ped grouping file, which means he can also spawn as a gang member (or regular ped, or anything really) without the use of any tricks or game errors (although it is quite rare for this to happen, which is what gives MALE01 the mythical edge anyways.)

Yes, I agree with you, the game uses an old engine and it is released in 2004, when technology wasn't really at it's peak, so it is 100% that the placeholder bug is confirmed and real, the game is full of bugs and glitches.

      Here's an example of my game failing to load the correct hotdog vendor model because I flew too fast with my Hydra, making the game load the nearest ped (I took of from Santa Marina so it explains the beach woman.

      It isn't just the MALE01 ped, it can be others, I have provided an image for something that happened in my game.

    • That glitch is actually not relevant to the MALE01 phenomena itself, but something similar. That girl spawned in place of the ice cream vendor exactly because you were flying around in a Hydra. You must have passed through a beach area or something similar before you bailed out, and the game simply took some time to adjust to the player's new location and load in the right ped group (a good example of this is Rancho, where you can find lots of country peds in the city by crossing the bridge, or vice versa.)
