Please be aware though that if Craig releases any further main.scm updates, the link in Konstantinos' 100% question will be invalid, and removed (at that time). Or, at least until Kon achieves 100% again !
On another note (again) - please post all of your questions here instead of starting new topics.
EDIT - Nevermind. Craig still has the old v5 files in that download so it should still work.

Also, I have a question - what are the filenames for the cutscene audio included for Under Surveillance. I'd prefer to use it rather than the original GTA3 PC version - I'll know which files not to replace when I install LC. Thanks in advance.

@blyth - on an ordinary PS2, I'd say no. But X-box is a possibility since it has a hard-drive to change some stuff. So yeah I guess it would be a possibility, but I can't guarantee that it will work or that any team member will be able to help you out with converting it. You're quite welcome to try though. Good luck with it .

| Hey, it's yet another user with the "Please insert cd..." etc. Please help! Thanks |
Well, first of all, I've got legal versions of both GTA3 and GTA VC.
Here's exactly what I did:
I had GTA VC installed a long time ago; however, I reformatted my computer.
This is the first time I've tried to install GTA LC, and I installed GTA VC just to play GTA LC.
So, I installed GTA VC with the radio station, and then I backed up gta-vc.exe and copied over a no-cd crack.
At this point, I had no idea that it wouldn't work well.
Immediately after (so I haven't patched or ran Vice City by itself yet; I don't know if this matters), I made a copy of "Grand Theft Auto Vice City" and renamed it "Grand Theft Auto Liberty City", and started the installation (gtalc_beta2_test5b_installer.zip).
Since I have the GTA3 Play Cd, I put that in to install the audio. The installation went perfectly.
I went into the launcher/advanced to see what options there were before trying to run the game, but I didn't change anything.
I clicked launch and after the well done intro, it asked me for the cd. I put in my VC play cd but it didn't seem to recognize it.
Then, I came here to the forums and read the locked thread "How to fix the "Insert CD" problem" and the FAQ.
Clicking "Verify Paths" gives me a message saying all paths are valid.
After reading the FAQ, I also disabled "Change Taskbar Text and Icon", because I want to (try to) use GTA VC Admin Console. I replaced the no-cd exe with the original Vice City exe and clicked Launch again.
It had the scanning cd cursor this time, but of course it recognized my original cd. Still, after the intro movie it asked for the cd.
Any ideas? Am I doing anything wrong?
Wow, my bad, didn't read
You see, I downloaded it from here: http://www.gtaforums...howtopic=204010
which doesn't make any mention of this problem, unlike
Also, I'm wondering what it means by "original gta-vc.exe" in the bug fix post. Which exe should I have to get it to work normally?
Posted 02 January 2006 - 01:16 AM
1. Install VC (don't use the no-cd crack - use your original VC exe.
2. Start installing LC - don't install the GTA3 audio. We'll do that later - sometimes it screws up the file extensions if you install directly off the CD (eg - police.mp3 would become police.mp3.mp3, etc.). Also, make sure that you have VC fully installed - including radio stations.
3. When LC is finished installing put your GTA3 CD in your CD drive. Explore it, and find the audio folder. Open it up, select all, copy, and paste it into your audioLC folder in your LC directory.
4. Go to Show Config in your LC folder -> Advanced -> Audio -> Verify Paths. All should be valid.
5. Put your VC CD back in your drive, and then run LC. It should work. If it doesn't, post again. Good luck .

I'm just wondering, is the extension corruption/normal corruption the only reason why I shouldn't install the GTA3 audio?
Well, I thought about what you said, so I decided to use UltraCompare to see if any files were corrupted, and yes three radio stations were.
Would it be enough if I just copied them over?
Edit: I copied them over and it works

|Would it be enough if I just copied them over?|
Yes, you can manually copy any of the audio files in the audioLC folder from the GTA3 CD.

Nice - enjoy the mod !
Sorry to hear that .
Did you say a while ago that the new installer was going to have the option to install the audio from a hard-drive location as well?

I'll see what I can do with adding the undercover dudes - it's just a case of extracting them from the VC img, renaming them, and adding them to the LC img right?
Will that still leave the ordinary FBI dudes in the Enforcers?
