I need help trying to figure out how to get GTA 3 and Vice City to work on my Windows 8 PC. I'm running Windows 8 Pro with MC, legit. Both game versions are from Steam. Both games worked perfectly fine on Windows 7. I'm running an Intel Core i5 750 and GTX 470, 4GB RAM. My problem: Since both games are internally similar in architecture, the same problems occur for both games so I'm assuming the same fixes should work for both games. The games start up perfectly fine, until it comes to starting a game. Whether I start a new game or load one of my 100% save files, the game loads the save file but once the loading bar has passed, the screen just stays black and doesn't render any visible gameplay. The game isn't frozen as I can easily multitask out of it. I know Windows 8 is a new system and many people wouldn't have used it yet, but it is very similar to Windows 7 in terms of compatibility, why do these games not work. I've tried Windows 98/ME mode, in GTA 3 it doesn't work and on VC it asks to insert a game disk on start-up. I am not going to downgrade to Windows 7 because I'm perfectly happy with Windows 8. SA, IV and EFLC work perfectly fine, even PCSX2 emulator for LCS and VCS works fine. I'd really like to fix this problem.
