I have a GTA Vice City backup that I made when game worked good with mods, no crash. My pc automatically upgraded from Windows 8 to 8.1 and when I downloaded GTA Vice City backup, it doesn't work more, even if it used to work. Using event viewer, crash report shows this:


Faulting application name: gta-vc.exe, version:, time stamp: 0x00000000
Faulting module name: d3d8.dll, version: 6.3.9600.18821, time stamp: 0x59ba8666
Exception code: 0xc0000142
Fault offset: 0x0009d4c2
Faulting process id: 0x1018
Faulting application start time: 0x01d34ce728d62e6f
Faulting application path: C:\Program Files (x86)\Rockstar Games\GTA Vice City\gta-vc.exe
Faulting module path: d3d8.dll
Report Id: a62a1d3e-b8da-11e7-be82-208984639d43
Faulting package full name: 
Faulting package-relative application ID:
I also tried to replace that d3d8.dll with original file, but then game starts and crashes during loadscreen. Could anyone help me?
More facts:
- I also deleted gta.set, not solved
- turned off dep, not solved
- turned on compatibility to XP, ME and 97, not solved
- launched as admin, not solved.
