Gforce 2mmx-32 mb
52x speed cd-rom
I Have the game running at 640x480x16 and the first 15 minutes a have a smooth 30 fps, but after those 15 min. The game begins to have slowdowns, and thats f*cked up!!!
My pc is fast enough to have Max Payne in a resolution of 1024x786x32. So why not GTA3???????
I think its because of my small amount of memory, but the biggest problem of course is the game it self, hopefully Rock* brings out a new patch soon, where they do handle these problems!!!!

frame limiter ON
constant 30fps everywhere, drop to 27/28 with rain.
without Frame limiter - totally jerky, too much lag,
fps going to 70fps, then down to 25 without any reason. unplayable, thks to rockstar for didn't even optimised their engine for the PC.
yes, 30 fps isn't what we could expect from a pc game, we usually play games at 60+ fps...but we should be happy to even play GTA3 considering actual PC gaming health.

It runs a lot faster than the PS2 version, it maxes out at about 90-100 frame rates.
The only problem i know is that if youre running an intel 845G chipset (im not) and your processor is less than 2.0 GHZ and you have a Geforce 4 ti series card with 128 mb ram on it, the CPU can not keep up with the graphics card and as such gets confused as to what its doing.

Its a homebuilt system, cost about $500, and PERFECT performance. Always at about 60FPS, running in 1024x768x32, w/ everything all the way up (gotta love that draw distance) I dont know why some people are having bad performance out of gta3. *shrugs* it might be because of that EVIL active desktop. TURN Active desktop OFF! It slows down EVERYTHING! not just GTA3. And use *.BMP wallpapers, not JPEG or GIF.

with win 98 se:
really GREAT PERFORMANCE without frame sync and limiter
but with winxp pro:
all the subtitles and meny letters are squares and the shadows in the game too, but the game runs really good, near to great the same as when u thick 'disable texture' in 3d analyze...
AND THAT IS WITHOUT PATCHES..
So guys is there any fix for gta3 on winxp, cuz i try it on 2 PCs (the another is with intel 815 chipset), with the newest drivers but the squares are there.... 10x

I have my resolution set at 800x600x32 in game. Runs at a pretty steady pace but slow at times when in chase or constantly changing radio. A little sketchy at times when you look off into the distance.

Well Gta3 starts out ok but as I play longer it gets choppier and choppier to the point that it is unplayable. And this is on the first island, once i get to the second island its over... too choppy to play. It doesnt seem to be graphics/processor but more slower/older Hard drive and lack of ram (128) sooo, until I upgrade anybody have any suggestions? I've already ran Scandisk and defragmented my HD but still have the same effects.
Oh yeah Im running 640x480x16

I just purchased GTA 3 a week ago. At first I wasn't able to run the game at all, but then I found out about the Windows XP patch. The game now runs ok at 1024 * 768 * 16 bit. Sometimes though the game slows down.

(all new drivers)
getting between 35-60fps (peaks at 100+ in some places), no skecthin, no lag, 800x600x16 with Quincunx AA enabled.
I'd post a screenshot of me in the rain cruising along in a Cheeta at 47fps, but i cant be bothered.
I didnt install any of those framerate patches, the sound is running from my hard drive, and i installed that awesome german Radar patch.

I checked the fpm on mine and right at the beginning of the game when you start driving... it goes at about 4 fpm.. the highest it ever went was 10 fpm ....
When you change to the overhead view... the game runs smoother... but there is still a noticeable lag.
