Installation is to be done on a fresh copy of VC and is fully automated. It requires the VB6 runtimes available here. The game is launched with a custom launcher that allows us to make the necessary edits we need without actually modifying the EXE smile.gif

Fixes include:
Single sided objects fixed – can be considered final
Flickering scenery in Staunton & Shoreside Vale fixed
LODs now visible between islands
LODs poking through road surfaces & buildings eliminated
Airport crash bug fixed
Flickering airport shadows fixed
Opaque glass windows now transparent & breakable
Portland dark road surfaces corrected
Edge of Portland docks now totally accessible
City wide update of collision files fully realised
Pay & Spray and Bombshop doors now work
Hideout doors now work
Emergency vehicle crane ship now fully visible
Flickering Portland shadows fixed
Building missing rooftops corrected
Lighthouse LOD model correctly positioned
Object placement updated – affects many lampposts, fire escapes, barriers etc.
Non-textured objects corrected - airport tunnel, stadium doors, shop fronts etc.
Blue edged alpha textures fixed although not yet complete
Callahan Bridge LODs updated – bridge is now final
Non-transparent object fixed - lighting bollards, lighthouse etc.
Car park barrier colours fixed
Recreational area lamppost heights corrected
Particle’s corrected – water wakes, newspapers & leaves
Airtrain height flight corrected
...among others...

Thanks to all the fans and supporters of the GTA:LC effort for all of their support and patience. Thanks to everybody who has contributed. SPECIAL thanks to killer.ip for his undieing efforts throughout all of this, Hammer83 for the EXE launcher, and Smithers2 for the installer.

The mod went behind the scenes for the greater good of the installer. Things will now resume to full public interaction. All threads and releases will now be assumed to be post-Beta, which is why the forum itself is sort of "resetting". Of course this post will get updated as more and more mirrors line up.

Great work, to all the team. This should attract heaps of people, purely because you don't need to install all the patches released thus far to get it playable.

When I tested this, before it was released, I could tell that there have been some major improvements. First one I noticed was the LOD, looks way better now.

I think I will postpone my race track and continue with the ped conversion.

Read the readme tounge.gif LC Spawn was left in the code for the official release so that EVERYBODY can enjoy the most obvious advantage of LC--bikes and helis in Liberty City--straightaway. There are also some parked throughout the city...

That was a beautiful moment last night, if only I could've filmed my expression the moment I realised what was going on... biggrin.gif

Big thanks go out to all the members that have helped out over the last few months to get this to you. Now that we have a set of files to call our own we're finally in a position where our next set of objectives are clear... but in the meantime have fun, my stars tell me there is much work ahead. wink.gif

Also, for the record, there will be no bikes spawning in Portland just like here was no luxury cars in original GTA3. So the only bike you can get in Portland is parked in the Old School Hall (is that how it's called?) parking lot.

Great work. Many thanks to all people who worked on this superdupper project user posted image

I'm downloading it right now.
The project seemed al little dead the last weeks but I guess there was a lot of "behind the scenes" work.
