    AllyssonEAraujoGot stuck in hobbies and pastimes (41/42). Checked it twice. Do I need to do sports with a companion? Like with Franklin play golf with Michael.

    Eds Killerbox 7No, you just need to win at everything and get at least par on the golf course. As far as I remember.

    For those struggling to find a shop to rob for the 100%, you need to walk into a shop (clothes or ammunition) Open the doors out ways, go outside, draw a weapon, kill the person in the shop, run to the register and shoot that until money pops out, this will count to 100%

    This is also a map gas stations to rob IN SINGLE PLAYER

    The Nerds ClubI never understood why rockstar didn't put mini marts on the map in story. Your guide rocks without this map there impossible to find.

    I don't know if this is a solution or not but I just want to put this out there. To get 100% you have to get all the requirements in partyboy316' solution but like me and you got everything and you had left some strangers and freaks missions to go for last and they didn't appear DON'T DELETE YOUR SAVE as your save isn't corrupted because I was going to do this but luckily I stuck with the game looked up solutions on how to get these missions to appear in my game. What I did to get them to appear which was in most solutions (but they mainly said to go online and switch back offline which did not work for me) was go online from the character select menu and choose your online character and what I did while I was doing stuff at home was put a rubber band on your controller so you don't get booted for being idle and I did this twice for around 30 mins each and after I had done this both my missions had spawned and I got my 100% achievement.
    So this is what you do to get missions to spawn like tonya and possibly Dom and others:
    1. Go to gta single player and use the character the mission isn't appearing for (not confirmed on this but I did it anyway)
    2. Once loaded in got to character wheel by holding down on the d-pad and select your online character
    3. Once in online keep moving in your safehouse by either putting a rubber band on your controller and face it in a diagonal direction so your character moves in a circle constantly so your character doesn't get kicked or hold your finger down in the diagonal direction. It's completely up to you
    4. Do this for 30 or more minutes at a time and if it doesn't work try and do it longer.
    5. once you are satisfied with the time you have spent going in circles, hold down on the d-pad and choose the character you want the mission to spawn for (the character you choose may not appear in single player all the time like when I wanted to choose franklin it made me michael, but this shouldn't be a problem as it still worked)
    6. If this worked congratulations but if it didn't I recommend you try longer or play gta online with friends or by yourself not as a solution but to speed up the process and you can also work towards you lvl 100 achievement at the same time overall your mission should appear eventually and good luck guys!!!

    KexolWhat fixed it?

    EskimosoundOk with Hao missions they take a week to pop, he texts you so do the first one and sleep a week...
    With the Tonya missions they sort of disappear because they were so early in the game, just ring her as Franklin and they will start again no need to do all that rubbish suggested by the OP...
    And the last Dom mission appears AFTER you do all the Parachute jumps (13) as Franklin.
    There's no glitches this is just the way it is!!!
