I'd also like to know how I can enable windowed mode, or a way to have a widescreen resolution (preferebly 1680x1050). wow.gif

I think only on GTA DOS version+dosbox... (i tried here and works fine. Otherwise, my joystick dont work well, the char start spining like a retard... im using a usb joy. On keyboard its okay)

Dxwnd dont work. Tried with all modes and they just start at fullscreen. Using dx6 it show the menu windowed and you can select the missions but they dont start and freeze after that...

Glidos dont worked. It dont run nothing. Maybe is something with os (im using windows 7).

Somebody must have a trick to make the window mode work on gta provided by rockstar games on their site.

Edit: Theres a sh*t bug with side axis right and left (up and down too) while you try config your joystick for gta from dosbox... this makes the character spining all time. I believe its because usb compatibillity...
