Remember to delete the .set file in the User Files Folder in My Documents.
Also, I don't know about XP, but on Vista, after you select the 98 compatibilty mode, the User Files Folder might move to the Public folder.?

|I reinstalled the game and the problem continues.|
Here comes the question - Is your game legal?

|twannie1997 but my problem isn't with the save files. My problem with Windows 98 Compatibility mode is that it doesn't recognize the cd!!|
I had that happen with SA and VC on my old Vista Basic PC I used to have-in 98 comptibilty mode, it would not recognoze the disc-but it did recoginze the disc in XP compatibilty mode and w/out compatibilty mode.(But one won't really help since you're on XP).
However, are you using any "No-CD cracks? Also, Have you tried updating the drivers for your Video Card, Sound card, and DX? Have you tried updating to DX 12?-that one tends to work great on Windows 7, so it might work on XP.? Have you tried the V1.1 Patch?-That might help, since you have an older OS(XP), instead of the later OS's Vista or 7.Just a heads up.

|I'm not using a no-cd crack, and I don't have mods (I have a translator, though). How do I update the Video Card, Sound card, and DX?|
Ok, how about if you put in the complete system specs of your computer. So we can verify if you actually do have to update and when was the last time you updated anything on your computer? Sorry for the 3 day wait reply.

|Before you post a topic, please read the pinned bug lists/fixes. It is likely that you're not the first person to encounter a problem, and we may have found a solution already. In addition to these pinned topics, please utilize the forum search engine. adamcs has produced an extremely helpful guide which explains the finer points of successful searching, accessible here. |
If all of the above is no help, you'll need to post a new topic. Please provide useful topic titles. "Help" or "problem" give us no insight into the problem - every topic in the Troubleshooting forum will no doubt entail a problem seeking help!
To get the most amount of help for your problem, we need as many details as we can get about your system's specs. Therefore it is highly suggested (read: demanded) that you provide:
• What platform: PC, PS2, or X-Box
• What CPU and its speed
• How much RAM, also what kind (DDR, SDRAM) and speed
• What video card
• Which version of Windows (and any service packs)
• Which DirectX version
• What sound card
• History: Is this your first install? Did it work once before? Anything that is relevant.
• Screenshots, if applicable. This is especially necessary with display issues which can be explained far easier by use of visual aids.
• Above all else, a detailed description of your problem. Give as much information as possible! Keep it relevant, though. We don't need a fifty-page printout from some diagnosis program. Usually the above prompts will suffice.
Also, have you tried deleting the .set file in the User Files folder in Documents(Vista and 7)/My Documents(XP) after the driver updates? Also, try getting rid of the Translator and play the game normally as it was intended, and see if that helps. The above quote will help determine the problem(s).

What platform: PC, PS2, or X-Box PC
What CPU and its speed: Intel Core2Quad 2.33 GHz
How much RAM, also what kind (DDR, SDRAM) and speed: 4 GB RAM (but only 3 GB USABLE)
What video card: GeForce 9400
Which version of Windows (and any service packs): Windows XP PROFESSIONAL SERVICE PACK 3
Which DirectX version: 9
What sound card: Realtek HD Audio output
History: I never had problems with GTA III. It was the ONLY game I NEVER HAD PROBLEMS WITH!!! Since I told it to my son, THE GAME GAVE THIS PROBLEM! I formatted my computer and the game is giving this problem.
Screenshots, if applicable. This is especially necessary with display issues which can be explained far easier by use of visual aids: I don't know how a screenshot can explain the problem
I deleted the SET file and I don't know how to update my drives I deleted the translator reinstalled the game and the problem persists. I guess I'm unlucky
