When at the Lieutenant Section Type I LOVE HANSON (all
caps) to get $50,000.
In the Gang Organizer, go to the city maps. Bring up the
info on any business and let the mouse hover around over
the box until a little 'Return to base' tip appears. Click
there and tada, the business is yours. If you want, you
can sell it on the spot and the cash will go directly
into your assets. Or you can wait until next week when
you can send someone to run the business.
$3000 For Gangs:
At the Lieutenant part of the gang organizer screen press
D + A + R + T to give $3000 to each gang.
Extort some properties (it will not matter if they want
to pay you the money). After that week, look on the map
and double click on the property that was extorted. A
picture of the owner will appear with details about the
shop. Move the cursor next to the picture in the "blank
space" and the cursor will change. Click when this
happens and the property will become yours. Do not forget
to send a man to run the place the following week.
Go to the Lieutenant's page of the Gang Organizer, open
the Cars menu, and go to the "Black Market".
Instead of clicking on the car you want and waiting for
the money clip to appear, quickly drag the car of your
choice from the "Black Market" page to the picture
of it on the Lieutenant's side. If this was done fast
enough, the item will be yours, with no money being subtracted.
This can also be done with guns, but does not work with
recruited hoods. Note: Try this first without having enough
money for the object, as it takes some practice. After
each time this trick is used (whether successful or not),
exit the "Black Market" and return.
