Five years ago Carl Johnson escaped from the pressures of life in Los Santos, 
San Andreas--a city tearing itself apart with gang trouble, drugs and 
corruption, where film stars and millionaires do their best to avoid the dealers
and gangsters. Now, it's the early 90s. Carl's got to go home. His mother has 
been murdered, his family has fallen apart and his childhood friends are all
heading towards disaster. On his return to the neighbourhood, a couple of
corrupt cops frame him for homicide. CJ is forced on a journey that takes him
across the entire state of San Andreas, to save his family and to take control
of the streets.

A Quick Overview of this FAQ                                             [FAQ4]
Sex Appeal and Respect is a big part of this game, and i have created this FAQ

I will tell you where to get respect, why to get respect, as well as why and how
to get Sex appeal. All these things are needed to get 100%, and so this FAQ is

Respect - General Questions                                              [RT04]
This is the section for General Questions, you can email me your questions at

[Q] How do I recruit Gang members?
[A] To recruit gang members, go up to them and target them with R1 (Preferably
    with no weapons or melee weapons) and then press Up or Down on the D-Pad

[Q] I still cant recruit them, why cant I recruit the gang members?
[A] You need to make sure that your Respect bar is above 1% this may be the case
    or it may be that you have already recruited all that you can recruit

[Q] My gang members keep falling behind and dont follow me what should i do?
[A] Pressing Up on the D-Pad will make CJ give a shout to the gang members

[Q] I dont want the gang members any more what should I do?
[A] Do NOT kill them, just press down on the D-pad and he will tell them to stay
    where they are. Then go where ever you wanted to go, and they will be gone
    when you come back (and you wont have lost respect)

[Q] Are the Gang members Really helpful in Gang Wars?
[A] Hell no, just have them, usualy a few of them will get killed before the
    gang wars start, and the remaining during the gang war. They can be good to
    take some of the damage, so just have them anyway, but you will have to do
    all the work yourself.

Respect - How to Raise                                                   [RT05]
Respect can be raised in many ways which can be seen below:

[Method 1]Mass Murder Cops - Get them on you, and kill them like theres no
[Method 2]Mass Murder Gang members - Go into other gangs turf, and just kill as
          many as you can
[Method 3]The way that you dress will also influence the Respect you get from
          gang members. Belows a table so you can dress 'Appropriately'
          look at a clothe FAQ for more details about clothes

       telling you how much respect you get for every kill:

Having resepct allows you to recruit gang members, belows a table telling you

Having gang members will make it easier for you to fight in gang wars as they
will take alot of the bullets for you, but just dont expect them to win it for
you, your going to have to the hard wark all by yourself.
When in a car and going through enemy teritory the Gang members will shoot any
enemies that they see, as well as cops. The good thing is that even if the
police see this, it WONT get you a wanted level, so you can use it to your
During some missions you may not be able to take gang members with you, so watch
out for the missions that you can.

Ok, heres a quick and easy way to win gang wars...firstly go into the area that
you want to take over, and find a place where theres one entrance and no exit
(so you would basicaly be trapped there if the gang memebers come) this is
actually the best place for you to be. Now just go and start a gang war,and as
soon as you killed the gang members, go to this place and wait for the first 
Wave to come. Now that you have basically trapped yourself, theres only ONE way
from which they can come, meaning that they cannot surround you at all. Which is
good for you, because all you have to do is press L3 to crouch, and pick them of
one by one (its best to use an Uzi/tec9) try to take out the closer ones first
as they are usauly the only ones that can shoot, as the tec9 does have good 
distance firing. Now just keep hold of the O button and keep pressing L2 and R2
until theres no-one left from taht wave. Now quickly go and get their weapons, 
and see if you can spot any armour or health, and if you can, get it. Now repeat
until all 3 waves have been beaten and the hood becomes yours.

Sex Appeal - General Questions                                           [SA07]
This is the section for General Questions, you can email me your questions at

[Q] If you get to 100% does the meter stay at 100%?
[A] No once you get it to 100% it does go back down, but usually theres no point
    in dating her anymore, so you can let it go. However its best to keep dating
    Barbara and Katie as they will give you other bonus's

[Q] Why cant I find the girls home??
[A] Try going at the times I have mentioned below, and try to do the girlfreind
    'Quests' As soon as possible. It may be becuase your not the right type
    (i.e. your to muscular or you have no muscles)

[Q] Do you get to see the girls and CJ having sex?
[A] No you dont, all you see is the outside of their home, (with the car you
    braught them home in, if any) and the screen will shake and they will say
    things and thats about it.

[Q] Do i have to get 100% with them before they have sex with CJ?
[A] No, just get it near 50% and she should invite you in for Coffee (Bringing
    her flowers makes this happen sooner)

[Q] How do i actualy date the girls?
[A] First of all you need to find them, and then when you have, go up to them &
    they will compliment you, so press right on the D-Pad to compliment her, and
    she will now be your girlfriend. If your not their type (i.e. too skinny)
    then she will tell you what to do, for you to become her type.

[Q] Do I need to get the girls to 100% to get 100%???
[A] No, you dont need to date any of the the girls (Besides millie who gives you
    the Key card) for 100%

[Q] I got the car keys but why cant I STILL get into the car??
[A] You have to go away and then come back, as it will only open once its

When dating try out these simple things:
~Bring her Flowers (These can be found in: Verona Beach & Glen Park)
~Give them to her, and then kiss her
~Bring a good undamaged car
~Try to keep the car undamaged
~Drive into enemy teritory and she may want to do some drive by's
~Bring her the Purple Dildo from the LS Police station and give it to her.
~Look at the top left hand corner, if it says Press L1 to Kiss, PRESS IT (It can
 happen when ever, doesnt have to happen only when you give her something)
~When she invites you inside ACCEPT, and she will have Sex with CJ (all you see
 is the car you braught her home in, and the screen shaking around)
~When they call you, that means they are waiting for you, drop what every your
 doing and go to her
~If you just dropped her and you see that the red markers there again, take her
 out again, it will make it easier to get to 100% with the girl.
