There isn't a 3D model of a shark in the game, but a silhouette of a shark. I've seen it twise. First time over at the end of the big pier in Santa Maria and the second time under the Gant Bridge.

And every time i mention it here, i'm told i saw a dolphin.
Well, i, for one, can tell a dolphin from a shark. And a 3D model from a 2D silhouette.

The silhouette vanishes slowly, just like the sailboat silhouettes do in Vice City.

Now, you can keep on telling it's just another dolphin, but i know what i saw.
I've seen sharks too but i know no one will believe that i saw themNo one can tell me what i did and didn't see. Anyways it could be like a patch cheat that fixes glitches caused by cheats,or maybe it unlocks one of the 30 secrets

Attention!

I've done some hardcore research of this. This is what I have to say:

-It definately does NOT remove the cheat counter in the menu.
-I did some handling testing, it does not appear to have any affect. I used cars I knew, tailwhipping them until I was sure I was used to the handling, then trying the same with the cheat. No affect.
-I spent 20 or so minutes driving around (in the ghetto I might ad), and I saw one police chase. I expected at least one, I am quite sure that isnt what the cheat does.

My honest opinion is that its an easter egg of sorts, that all it does is bring up the 'Cheat Activated' sign, and activate the chime.

Maybe, because i notice when you enter the cheat a second time it still says cheat activated rather than deactivated, which is what the weather cheat does.Ideas?

Ever stop to think that R* made it contradict what some of you have been saying? It just raises your cheat counter. Makes you dirtier and dirtier. Nothing more.

Uh, but, that's what I just said...

Or were you just restating my point, as you also believe that I'm on the right trail? If so, nevermind.

Really, though. That's apparently all the cheat does. Makes you guiltier and guiltier, adding more cheats to your Stats. Sucks, huh?

It should add 1000 cheats instead of just one to your counter. Pwnage, R* style.

Does it really say that? It doesn't say deactivated for other cheats that you can turn on and off...
I think you're wrong. But I've never used the weather cheat...Perhaps once or twice.

Trust me, holmes. It does. You're just not reentering the cheats correctly. As far as I know, the Country theme, Funhouse theme, and Spawn/Gimme cheats are "one-way".

Yeah but this guy:

Says that it actually says 'Cheat Deactivated'. I'm pretty sure, when entering the traffic cheat, it just says cheat activated every time. Although the traffic does go away and come back.

It does. Whenever I'm done with Rioting, I just enter the same cheat, and it says "Cheat Deactivated". You probably mistook "Activated" and "Deactivated"; I've been known to do so.

When you turn certain cheats off (like phsyco drivers) they say cheat deactivated,I'm probably just thinkin aloud.

BTW it wouldn't really make my cheat counter a lot higher because i use regular cheats for that

Well, yeah, but you're, well, "wasting" a cheat. See, all those other cheats,you have a use for. This onej ust raises it by 1, just to "waste" it.

I know what it is,
it increases the chances of peds having police chaces.
Yeah that's the effect it has. I tried it once and there was a pedestrian being chased by the police every minute or two.
