PC disc question[edit]

Does anybody know what the exact sizes of the PC dvds are? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs) .

Not sure if you mean physical size or how much data they hold. I know you need 160 mb free on the hard drive and 2 gb of ram, if that's what you're asking. - najzere 06:36, 4 December 2008 (UTC)
The anon probably wants to verify disc images, perhaps for authenticating a pirated version. --Notmyhandle (talk contribs) 09:53, 4 December 2008 (UTC)

Moving Mission Pages[edit]

I think it might be a good idea to move the mission strand pages to a subpage of say Grand Theft Auto IV/Missions. This would avoid confusion with character/friend pages for example with Little Jacob's missions and his activities and extra jobs. JordanH 00:28, 1 November 2009 (UTC)

Could you explain what the conflict is specifically? We don't generally like to create an extra level of sub-paging unless two pages have the same name and disambiguating the titles themselves would be unwieldy. Would "Little Jacob missions", "Little Jacob activities" and "Little Jacob extra jobs" as page names solve the problem? — najzereT 04:46, 1 November 2009 (UTC)
I haven't tried doing enough Little Jacob missions to know if they vary, but he's suggesting that we differentiate between quests and jobs (both are "missions", but neither of those two are official terms). The quest missions progress the storyline and open up new things in the game. They are also required to reach the job missions of a particular NPC. For Little Jacob, you don't unlock job missions until you complete both of his quest missions. --Notmyhandle (talk contribs) 00:40, 3 November 2009 (UTC)
Also, there's a section in the table of contents for job missions, listed as "Side Missions". I'm not sure this is the best way to go if each character has only one specific type of job mission. Job missions can be requested/completed as many times as a player wants (they reward cash). It is probably better to put them on the character page (as I did for Little Jacob). --Notmyhandle (talk contribs) 00:44, 3 November 2009 (UTC)
