GTAIII crashes after reinstall
Posted 04 July 2013 - 08:44 PM
But then I started adding on mods which I believe hindered the games to run somehow. I would have thought that deleting the game folders entirely before uninstalling the games through Steam would give a "clean slate", and it has worked times before. Now when I try running them, it changes my monitor's resolution to 640x480, but after waiting some time, nothing else happens until I press the escape button and it reverts my monitor back to its native resolution, then gives the "gta3.exe/gta-vc.exe has stopped working" error.
Here are the list of user modifications (and their respective GTAForums threads) for GTA III that I remember downloading and then removing before reinstalling:
- GTA III Xbox Version PC Conversion
- a downgrader in order to use the Widescreen Fixer Remake
- HQ Textures
- Vehicle Camera Movement
My specs are as follows:
- OS: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1
- Video: GEForce GTX 560 Ti
- Memory: 3.97 GB RAM
- Processor: Intel Core i5-2500K CPU @ 3.30GHz
I've already tried combinations of various solutions I've found online, including ones listed in the thread stickies:
- Adding 'gta3.exe' and 'gta-vc.exe' to the DEP list
- Running the games in different OS compatibility modes, without visual themes & desktop composition, and without the 'display scaling on high DPI settings' option
- Disabling Windows Aero
- Disabling SEHOP
- Deleting the .set files from the User Files folder in My Documents
I'm not sure what other options I have left, so I would really appreciate any help!
