I have installed GTA Vice City and I was first wondering, why it always crashed after skipping intro movies.
I tried different things, but finally tracked the problem down to K-Lite Codec Pack.
I have made sure that I use "Microsoft"-codec for MPEG-PS, the format used by GTA Vice City intro movies. Using "LAV" will also crash. Using "Haali" won't crash, but videos become invisible.
Has anyone found a solution to prevent GTA Vice City crashes when using K-Lite Codec Pack? (It's the newest version v13.7.5 (Mega).) Without codec pack, GTA VC works fine.
My temporary solution is to move both movies away from .\movies -folder. Hitting ENTER twice will start the game.
This problem is not a big one, but I'm curious. One possibility is to install all the needed codecs separately, but of course it will take more work.
