I installed GTA Vice City and because I get the error "Cannot find 640x480 video mode" I installed the ddraw.dll to the game's directory. Allegedly the ddraw.dll should fix this error but the error still occurs. So I think the game doesn't recognize the ddraw.dll file. Even with installation of the SilentPatch additionally the error still exists.
 
If I copy a settings file from a savegame to the user files directory the game starts, but then the SilentPatch (and also the ddraw.dll) doesn't work (the mouse doesn't work, which should be fixed with SilentPatch). 
 
What should I do? I just want to make the ddraw.dll (and the SilentPatch too, of course) work without using a cr*ck.
 
Thanks in advance. :)
 
PS: I have the german version and the game is already patched to 1.1.
 
EDIT: Just saw there's already a thread for those problems. :O

Why dont you like using nocd? Not only mods mostly support nocd exes, the nocd exes has also the old drm removed, so it actually increases compatiblity with newer systems. (since MS broke the compatiblity with these old DRMs, because of security flaws [and also some of those DRMs actually acting as a malware])

Thanks for your reply! 

 

If I use a no CD the game will crash at some points, for example buying weapons at ammu nation or starting fire truck missions. :( Of course I used various nocd's.

Oh, turns out you need to *downgrade* the SCM too. But changing the scm would make the game not load your saves :/

What does "SCM" mean?

main.scm - it contains all the coding of missions in game.
