  1. Bug List with Solutions - PC Version This post contains problems that several GTAForums users have had with Grand Theft Auto Vice City on PC along with various solutions that have fixed their problems. For details on problems related to PS2 see the post below written by @Spuds725. Here's the deal. You post a bug you've encountered in the Help & Support section and we try to find a solution to it. Once we get an answer, this topic will be updated with the bug and the solution for public viewing. If you see a bug in this topic and you have an alternate solution to it, don't hesitate to post. Remember, this topic is for genuine glitches or bugs with legal versions of Vice City. As always, no warez. We don't want to become a breeding ground for people to cheat our friends at Rockstar out of their hard-earned income. If you have an illegal copy, keep it to yourself. Frankly, you deserve any problems you encounter. This topic, and indeed the entire Vice City Forum, is for unmodded versions of Vice City. If you've got a problem and you're using mods, the problem is most likely the mods - no questions. If you've got a problem and you 'know' it's not the mods, uninstall the mods and ask for help then, and only then. Don't waste our time by posting issues with modded games! All modding discussions should be directed at the Modding Forum! First things first. Ensure your system meets or exceeds the minimum (or ideally, the recommended) system requirements as released by Rockstar: GTA Vice City PC Specifications. Before posting a question, please make sure to visit Rockstar Support. You should also make sure you have the most update drivers for your video and sound cards. Visit your video/sound card manufacturer's website to download the latest drivers. Always try deleting the gta_vc.set file (Documents\GTA Vice City User Files\gta_vc.set) and re-install Vice City before posting a new topic. Re-installing can perform miracles! Once you have checked out Rockstar Support, be sure to read the Troubleshooting Posting Requirements which can also be found pinned in the Help & Support section. Be sure to read this thoroughly before posting a topic detailing your problem. It is also suggested to use the search function for the forums before asking a question, as, although we try, it is both possible and indeed likely that this topic does not list every problem/solution discussed on these boards over the years. And, if after all other avenues have been exhausted, you find yourself with a problem that we just can't find an answer to, you can email Rockstar Games directly for technical support at [email protected] Be sure to report back to us with any valuable working solutions or information Rockstar can provide. Problem 1: Textures take too long to load in the mission The Driver - Hillary may even fall through the bridge; or when loading a saved game or starting a new one, the 'loading' screen (pink text) remains on screen for far too long. Solution: Toggle the Frame Limiter (if it's off, turn it on - if it's on, turn it off). This is achieved by navigating to the Pause Menu > Display Setup > Frame Limiter. Adjusting the Draw Distance settings may also be of help. Alternatively: Set the Compatibility Mode of the GTA Vice City Executable File to 'Windows 98'. To do this, find 'gta-vc.exe' in your games folder (Program Files\Rockstar Games\Grand Theft Auto Vice City\gta-vc.exe). Right click the file, select 'Properties', click the 'Compatibility' tab and select 'Run this program in compatibility mode for:' choosing 'Windows 98' from the available options. Apply the changes, and then click OK. Alternatively: If your computer is using a weak graphics card, you should lower the resolution of the game to 640x480 or 800x600 (1024x768 or above is not recommended. For users with more powerful cards, make sure that anti-aliasing and anisotrpic filtering for either ATi's Catalyst/nVidia's ForceWare are set to "Application Preference" and that Mip-mapping and Texturing are set to "High Performance" - you should also do that to every other setting. Note that resetting these display properties to the factory defaults is another way to do this. Alternatively: Go into ATi's Catalyst Control Center, and enable something in the DirectX 3D settings called "Enable geometry instancing". While this rarely helps, it may give a boost in games that uses a lot of geometry such as GTA. It is unknown if an equivalent setting exists in nVIDIA's control panel. Problem 2: Vice City crashes after a certain amount of time, with no obvious catalyst for the crash. Solution: Your computer may have overheating or RAM issues. Open Task Manager (CTRL+ALT+DEL or by right clicking the Task Bar and selecting 'Task Manager') and end all non-essential processes. Advice: Defragment your hard drive, and check for things like spyware and viruses. There are many free utilities available for this - Simply search for Spybot, Ad-aware, AVG Free, etc. on the internet. Please note that spybot and ad-aware are resource hogs in my experience and may slow down your system. For better system performance, it is a good idea to uninstall them after running them on your system. Problem 3: The game's Graphics and Textures are not displaying correctly in the game. Solution: Update your video drivers. Yes, this is stated in the above introduction, but is particularly relevant with this problem. You do not require the 1.1 patch. This has been since outdated by updated video card drivers, and installing it will achieve nothing. Problem 4: Vice City periodically locks up with the sound still playing. Solution: Disable custom MP3s or rename MP3 files that have long file names - This seems to cause problems within the game.] Alternatively: Re-install the game with the optional 'radio stations'. This means the game will run solely off the hard drive, thus giving better performance on most machines (although worse performance on older machines). Alternatively: Roll back your drivers to an older version - Newer nVIDIA drivers apparently aren't the best for use with Vice City. One of the recommended versions of nVIDIA drivers is version 61.76. Problem 5: The player continually spins and spins and will not stop. Solution: Usually, there is a rouge controller that has fallen down the side of your desk or something. Check all controllers, mice, keyboards, etc. - any input devices connected to your PC - and make sure that no keys or buttons are pressed in. Also make sure to not press any buttons while the game is loading. Alternatively: Unplug and disable (through the Gaming Options in Control Panel) any game pad devices that you aren't using for Vice City. For controllers or game pads which have a 'Z' axis (or throttle), the throttle options must all be set to 0%. Such options include dead zone, sensitivity and range. It should be noted that steering wheels and/or pedals are not supported for Vice City. Problem 6: Installation errors. A CRC or data cab error (or similar) occurs when trying to install/run the game. Solution: This is an indication of a read error. Inspect your disc and try to remove all scratches, smudges, marks etc. It may be a fault of the drive itself, in which case you'll have to replace it with a functioning one. Alternatively: This often occurs with burnt copies of the game - especially those created with Clone CD. If you have an illegal copy, see the introduction above. Don't mention it here; we don't want to hear about it. Go out and buy the game if you expect it to work for you. Alternatively: End all non-essential processes, including anti-virus and Window Blinds. Alternatively: Empty the temporary folder on your hard drive (typically Windows\Temp). Alternatively: Close any emulation-type software such as Clone CD/DVD, Nero Burning Rom or Daemon Tools. Alternatively: If you are using Windows 98 or SE, turn off Active Desktop (if it is on). Alternatively: If you have an alternative disc drive, try installing from that. Some drives have compatibility problems with newer copy protection schemes. You should also update the firmware drivers for your disc drive. Problem 7: An Unhandled Exception error occurs. Solution:This is usually due to main.scm mods. With any alteration to the mission script, you usually have to start a new game. Alternatively: Open Task Manager (CTRL+ALT+DEL or by right clicking the Task Bar and selecting 'Task Manager') and end all non-essential processes. It is reported that Window Blinds in particular causes issues with Vice City if running alongside it - you may need to end its process. Problem 8: Mouse sensitivity is all stuffed up. Solution: Go here and download the VCAMM (Vice City Analogic Mapper (Mouse)). Alternatively: Uninstall your mouse drivers and use the Windows generic default one. If you don't know how to setup your mouse correctly when using these mouse drivers (e.g. Logitech MouseWare), it may cause problems. Also, make sure you click on 'Restore Defaults' when in Controller Setup. This sets the mouse sensitivity settings back to the defaults. You should also make sure that the mouse pointer speed/precision settings are set to the middle in Control Panel. Advice: Clean your mouse. If you have a regular mouse, clean the rollers and the mouse ball. If you have an optical mouse, clean the bottom of it. Please note that if you don't achieve 20-30fps during gameplay, your mouse will also lag. Problem 9: When running the executable, the screen just flashes. gta-vc.exe appears in the task list for a moment, and then disappears. Solution: Delete the gta_vc.set file. Instructions on how to do so are in the introduction (which you should have read beforehand), above. Problem 10: When using a sniper rifle, it just goes 'bang'. The bullets don't fire. All the other weapons work correctly. Solution: Uninstall the blood patch. If you're using an external modification/application (for example, a trainer), cease to do so. Problem 11: Vice City will not run after installation - instead, when clicking the icon to start, the Play CD spins and the pointer icon turns into a spinning-CD symbol, but the game never starts (and the pointer may not go back to normal until restarting Windows). Solution: End all running non-essential processes - whether it be an anti-virus, Window Blinds, whatever. This fix has also been reported to work by closing [email protected] and a startup program called "BigFix". Alternatively: If you notice a new piece of hardware called "secdrv" attempting to install itself, Windows may be mistaking some software for hardware. Go to Device Manager and look for a big yellow question mark (indicating hardware with no driver). If one stands next to "secdrv", delete it Alternatively: Set the Compatibility Mode of the GTA Vice City Executable File to 'Windows 98'. To do this, find 'gta-vc.exe' in your games folder (Program Files\Rockstar Games\Grand Theft Auto Vice City\gta-vc.exe). Right click the file, select 'Properties', click the 'Compatibility' tab and select 'Run this program in compatibility mode for:' choosing 'Windows 98' from the available options. Apply the changes, and then click OK. Problem 12: When performing a Unique Jump, the camera locks in slow-motion and does not release the view - it just stays in slow-motion. Solution: This is not so much a fix but a work around. ALT+TAB out of the game. Once out, click on Vice City on your task bar. ALT+TAB back in. If this does not release you, repeating the process a second time should do the trick. Alternatively: A fix/patch was created by Demarest to fix this bug, available here. (Re-hosted by @Spuds725). Problem 13: 'Test Track' or 'Trial by Dirt' time is not displayed in the game statistics. In some games there is a glitch in these checkpoints (this glitch exists on PS2 and PC - just not every copy has it) - for whatever reason, in some people's games, one of these times will not register unless the other is done - and then the times for both will be the same. Depending on what order you do them will affect whether one or both will be in your stats. This can prevent you from getting 100%. Solution: Do 'Trial by Dirt' again, check your stats to see if you have a time for both. If not, do 'Test Track' and check your stats again. If it still doesn't have a time for both, do 'Trial by Dirt' again - you should now have a time for both and it will be the same for both checkpoints. Problem 14: After the mission Two Bit Hit for Avery, the Cuban outfit icon is visible in the little store in Little Havana, but is unreachable - there is an invisible wall blocking access to it. Further explanation of this bug from Demarest: When you pass Two Bit Hit, the outfit pickup is created in the correct place. Missions that require you to be using a specific outfit are made to destroy all clothes pickups and recreate them after the job. Both Cop Land and No Escape? recreate the Cuban pickup in the wrong place. This is known as the Cuban outfit bug. It's not a random occurrence either; it WILL happen that way. Solution: The order you do missions affects whether this clothes icon is reachable. If you finish Copland (a Vercetti mission) and No Escape? (a Malibu mission) prior to completing Two Bit Hit, it will be reachable. Alternatively: Demarest's Bugs and Fixes Page - contains a download for both a fix if you have the bug, and a preventer if you don't have it yet. Physical Solution: Get a PCJ 600 and park it in the doorway. Blow it up. Jump on top of it, face the icon, now jump toward it. It might take you a few tries - you will fall through 'grey hell' momentarily and land in front of the shop - if you hit the icon on your jump you will change clothes. Problem 15: Vice City runs way too fast. Insanely fast. Walking pedestrians seem to be running by. Solution: Set the Compatibility Mode of the GTA Vice City Executable File to 'Windows 98'. To do this, find 'gta-vc.exe' in your games folder (Program Files\Rockstar Games\Grand Theft Auto Vice City\gta-vc.exe). Right click the file, select 'Properties', click the 'Compatibility' tab and select 'Run this program in compatibility mode for:' choosing 'Windows 98' from the available options. Apply the changes, and then click OK. Credit to @fairct for the solution, which was given in this topic. Alternatively: Set the affinity of the running gta-vc.exe process to one core rather than two. This is achieved by opening Task Manager (CTRL+ALT+DEL or by right clicking the Task Bar and selecting 'Task Manager'), right-clicking the process and selecting Set Affinity... Then, ensure just a single box is ticked. Note that this must be done once Vice City is running. Alternatively: Enable the Frame Limiter and VSync. Problem 16: There are problems changing the resolution of Vice City; and/or the game crashes upon 'ALT+TAB'ing out back to the desktop. Solution: It should be noted that the resolution can only be changed upon initially running the game (i.e. not after a gameplay has begun). Therefore, quit Vice City. Load it up again, and before anything else is done, simply head to display options and change the resolution. You must select the desired resolution with the directional keys and hit Enter to confirm. Alternatively Set the Compatibility Mode of the GTA Vice City Executable File to 'Windows 98'. To do this, find 'gta-vc.exe' in your games folder (Program Files\Rockstar Games\Grand Theft Auto Vice City\gta-vc.exe). Right click the file, select 'Properties', click the 'Compatibility' tab and select 'Run this program in compatibility mode for:' choosing 'Windows 98' from the available options. Apply the changes, and then click OK. Alternatively Uninstall any additional media codecs you may have installed previously. Alternatively Delete the gta_vc.set file. Instructions on how to do so are in the introduction (which you should have read beforehand), above. Alternatively Download and run 3D Analyze. Use this program to force Vice City to run in windowed mode. Resolution should now be able to be changed without problems. Change it as desired - this new resolution will function when the game is next run normally (i.e. without 3D Analyze). This process may have to be repeated for every resolution change desired. Source. Alternatively Uninstall Real Player if you have it installed. Problem 17: Sounds echo when playing Vice City. This often occurs with all sounds except for the radio. Solution: Update your sound drivers! Yes, this is stated in the above introduction, but is particularly relevant with this problem. Alternatively: Set the Compatibility Mode of the GTA Vice City Executable File to 'Windows 98'. To do this, find 'gta-vc.exe' in your games folder (Program Files\Rockstar Games\Grand Theft Auto Vice City\gta-vc.exe). Right click the file, select 'Properties', click the 'Compatibility' tab and select 'Run this program in compatibility mode for:' choosing 'Windows 98' from the available options. Apply the changes, and then click OK. Alternatively: Change your hardware sound acceleration to a different setting. This is achieved through: Start -> Run -> dxdiag, clicking the Sound tab and moving the Hardware Sound Acceleration Level slider to a different position; or by going to Advanced Speaker Settings through Control Panel -> Sounds and Audio Devices. Alternatively: Through Control Panel, disable any volumetric or advanced audio effects that may be enabled in your sound configuration (e.g. environmental audio). Alternatively: For onboard soundcards: Change the speaker configuration in Sound Manager from "Living Room" to "None" (or equivalent); or for Realtek cards, go Control Panel -> Sound Effect Manager -> 3D Audio Demo, and change the Sound from "Loopy Music" to "Buzzing Bee". See this thread for more information regarding onboard and Realtek sound cards. Problem 18: The mouse doesn't work during VC gameplay, but works flawlessly elsewhere (e.g. the desktop). The pointer may move while browsing the game menus, but cannot click, and scrolling doesn't work. Solution: ALT+TAB out of the game, and then return to it. Alternatively: Watch the first intro movie to the end. Alternatively: Uninstall, re-name My Documents\GTA Vice City User Files, and re-install. Problem 19: Vice City crashes right after the intro movie, offering the ever-helpful "gta-vc.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close". Solution: Set the Compatibility Mode of the GTA Vice City Executable File to 'Windows 98'. To do this, find 'gta-vc.exe' in your games folder (Program Files\Rockstar Games\Grand Theft Auto Vice City\gta-vc.exe). Right click the file, select 'Properties', click the 'Compatibility' tab and select 'Run this program in compatibility mode for:' choosing 'Windows 98' from the available options. Apply the changes, and then click OK. Problem 20: After changing the compatibility mode of gta-vc.exe, it is impossible to sprint, blow the horn, or skip cutsceses via the Shift key. Solution: Click on "Restore Defaults" when in the Controller Setup menu to refresh the SET file. Problem 21: During gameplay, the sky constantly flickers and the menu appears messy with horizontal and vertical lines as well as annoying character maps. Solution: Update your video drivers. Yes, this is stated in the above introduction, but is particularly relevant with this problem. You do not require the 1.1 patch. This has been since outdated by updated video card drivers, and installing it will achieve nothing. Alternatively: Toggle the Frame Limiter (if it's off, turn it on - if it's on, turn it off). This is achieved by navigating to the Pause Menu > Display Setup > Frame Limiter. Adjusting the Draw Distance settings may also be of help. Alternatively: Experiment with different resolutions in display setup, and a different colour quality (16/32 bit) Alternatively: Set the Compatibility Mode of the GTA Vice City Executable File to 'Windows 98'. To do this, find 'gta-vc.exe' in your games folder (Program Files\Rockstar Games\Grand Theft Auto Vice City\gta-vc.exe). Right click the file, select 'Properties', click the 'Compatibility' tab and select 'Run this program in compatibility mode for:' choosing 'Windows 98' from the available options. Apply the changes, and then click OK. Alternatively: For nVIDIA cards, go into the Forceware Control Panel and set every DirectX/3D settings to be "Application" as well as "High Performance". For ATi cards, go into the Catalyst Control Centre and set every DirectX/3D settings to be "Application Preference" as well as "High Performance". You might want to play around with the VSync and the Refresh Rate as well, in addition to things like Double/Triple Buffering and Bilinear/Trilinear Filtering. Note: If your graphics card driver doesn't come with a display companion, check these settings in 'dxdiag.exe' (Display tab) or 'Display Properties' in the Control Panel. Also, some of the newer Radeon HD cards and the GeForce 8 series such as the infamous GeForce 8800GTS normally have advanced settings which affects older games. You should keep in mind that you might need to disable those features. Advice: Uninstall older drivers before installing newer ones. It just might cause conflict with the older driver and then the graphics hardware renders horrendous graphics referred to as "sky flickering". So for example if you had a Radeon and you upgraded it to a GeForce 8 card, uninstall the driver for the Radeon before installing the newest drivers for the GeForce 8. Naturally, in such a scenario, the SET file should also be deleted. Problem 22: Bugs occur when accelerating a vehicle - the car scrapes on the ground and is not steady. The problem may only arise periodically. Solution: Exit Vice City fully, and load up your game again. Alternatively: Direct Tommy to an area not nearby any cars or traffic. Now press the Windows key and resume gameplay. Once you enter a vehicle, the bug shouldn't appear. Save your game after doing this. Alternatively: Load up a save file that doesn't have this bug or simply start a new game, and then load up the one that has it. If still no luck, keep exiting and loading your save file until the acceleration bug goes away. Remember to save when this bug is cured. Alternatively: In an instance where the problem doesn't occur (e.g. after a fresh install at the beginning of the game), exit the game once you've confirmed the problem does not exist. Then browse to the data folder of your install directory (Program Files\Rockstar Games\Grand Theft Auto Vice City\data), and set handling.cfg and default.ide to "read only" in their file attributes (via right-click -> Properties). This seems to be a viable solution as it appears, for whatever reason, the game is writing funky values to the handling files - which holds with the theories behind the alternative solutions. Problem 23: Pressing the F1 key crashes Vice City. Solution: This is a known bug. The F1-Replay effect is buggy and in certain situations where textures are loaded, pressing the F1 key right in the middle of this event crashes the game. Don't press on the F1 key when cheat codes are already used. There are times when the ESC key does this ridiculous behaviour too. You'll regret having to start over from the beginning; use the F1 key at your own risks! Problem 24: Triggering a garage door freezes/crashes the game. Solution: Download a garage editor (VC Admin Console or LithJoe's Ultimate Trainer as listed in the Downloads Database are recommended) and remove all vehicles from the garage at fault. Problem 25: A "not enough video memory" occurs. Solution: Reinstall your video drivers. Also make sure that in 'Display Properties', your hardware acceleration level is set to 'Full'. Confirm that all DirectX/3D features are enabled in 'dxdiag' as well. Solution: Make sure you have at least 32+MB of VRAM. Problem 26: After applying the 1.1 patch, how would one go about 'down-grading' to the original version 1.0? Solution: Reinstall Vice City. Alternatively: Insert the Install disc and copy the gta-vc.exe file from this disc and paste it into your install directory (overwrite the 1.1 EXE when prompted). Problem 27: Vice City will not work on Windows Vista or XP. Solution: Update your video and audio drivers. Yes, this is stated in the above introduction, but is particularly relevant with this problem, as most issues arise from not having Vista-compatible drivers that function with the game. Alternatively: Set the Compatibility Mode of the GTA Vice City Executable File to 'Windows 98'. To do this, find 'gta-vc.exe' in your games folder (Program Files\Rockstar Games\Grand Theft Auto Vice City\gta-vc.exe). Right click the file, select 'Properties', click the 'Compatibility' tab and select 'Run this program in compatibility mode for:' choosing 'Windows 98' from the available options. Apply the changes, and then click OK. Problem 28: Sirens on applicable vehicles do not work. Solution: Tap the horn key. Tap it. As quickly as possible. This is a serial problem across all consoles, and can always be attributed to the unsuspecting gamer simply not tapping the horn key fast enough. Problem 29: Saved games are not located in the typical My Documents\GTA Vice City User Files directory (often when running Windows Vista). Solution: Users\Public (or equivalent, depending on your install location). Alternatively: Program Files\Rockstar Games\Grand Theft Auto Vice City\data\ (or equivalent, depending on your install location). Alternatively: Set the Compatibility Mode of the GTA Vice City Executable File to 'Windows 98'. To do this, find 'gta-vc.exe' in your games folder (Program Files\Rockstar Games\Grand Theft Auto Vice City\gta-vc.exe). Right click the file, select 'Properties', click the 'Compatibility' tab and select 'Run this program in compatibility mode for:' choosing 'Windows 98' from the available options. Apply the changes, and then click OK. Problem 30: Game displays a black screen when loading a saved game or starting a mission-- this problem may be specific to Windows 7 OS and/or a particular video card. Solution: Turn the frame limiter ON in your settings-- you can turn if back off during missions after the cut scene but if you have this problem try this solution. Source. Solution 2: It has been reported that turning on the frame limiter can cause other issues affecting game performance-- an alternate solution for this (and possibly any other issue with a "Frame Limiter" solution is to go into your video card's settings and "Force ON" Vsync (aka Vertical Sync)-- and apparently this will allow you to play with the frame limiter off. For specific instructions on how to do this on your card-- either search on google for: force on vsync [Enter your card maker brand-- ie ATI, Nvidea, etc and/or your card model]--- or can also search youtube this way-- a quick search yielded me several videos that will walk you through how to enable that setting. Problem 31: Vice City is unable to start up due to your video card not supporting lower resolutions-- specifically it does not support 640x480 resolution- this is VC's "native" resolution (i.e. the resolution the game starts in if you have never played it before)-- if your card does not support this resolution (and many newer PCs cards don't) the game will hang up upon start up. Solution: Try one or both of the following settings files that @Spuds725 has rehosted... one is at 800x600 and the other is at 1280x720 800 x 600 Resolution. 1280 x 720 Resolution. (You will need to rename this gta_vc.set for the game to recognize it). Put the above file in the appropriate file created by the game upon install... on XP is should be under your profile inside of my documents.... for example on my machine it is located C:\Documents and Settings\Bill\My Documents\GTA Vice City User Files\ After you have adjusted your resolution "in game" your settings are stored in the gta_vc.set file-- once you get the game functioning it would probably be a good idea to back up your gta_vc.set file in another location. Please note that you can only adjust your video settings at game start (before loading or starting a new game)-- you cannot pause and adjust them. NOTE: the above gta_vc.set files were made on my PC-- they have worked for a few other people with this problem, but there is no promises that they will work on your machine. Problem 32: When doing missions involving water the vehicle is unable to gain enough speed (ie Dildo Dodo-- plane can't take off or on boat missions, the boats don't go fast enough to pass missions) Solution: Toggle the frame limiter--- if it is off turn it on or if it is on turn it off. It has been reported that doing either of these (usually the problem is with the frame limiter being off) will allow the vehicle to go faster on water. The cause of this is unknown but the solution has been reported to work.... this has specifically be reported to fix the problem in the Sea Plane in "Dildo Dodo" and in the boat in "Stunt Boat Challenge". Source thread for "Stunt Boat Challenge" problem is here. This has also been reported as a fix for the mission "Checkpoint Charlie" if the boat cannot go full speed. Problem 33: While playing game on a newer PC the game works fine other then with Tommy in a vehicle in which case the car will NOT go in reverse. The white reverse lights on the car light up but the car does not move. Solution: Turn Frame Limiter ON-- Apparently newer PCs don't play well with VC's game engine Source thread for "Cannot Drive in Reverse- Solution" problem is here. Problem 34: The Mouse does not work in game. Solution 1: Set the Compatibility Mode of the GTA Vice City Executable File to 'Windows 98'. To do this, find 'gta-vc.exe' in your games folder (Program Files\Rockstar Games\Grand Theft Auto Vice City\gta-vc.exe). Right click the file, select 'Properties', click the 'Compatibility' tab and select 'Run this program in compatibility mode for:' choosing 'Windows 98' from the available options. Apply the changes, and then click OK. Solution 2: If the above does not work or is already selected. On the same Compatibility tab as before-- Tick the Check box next to "Disable Visual Themes" and then click apply.

In this topic you'll find save game files that are available to you, that have completed up to a certain point/task in the game. Which will prove very beneficial for those of you who wish to play a certain mission far into the game that you haven't yet accessed, and don't have the time to access. This will also be useful if you are struggling to complete a mission/task, and want to go straight into the game having already completed the mission/task you are having problems with. This topic is also complete with an array of Code Tools, all of which are guaranteed to substantially help you get past tricky situations the game throws at you. Saved Games Download & Installation Instructions: All saves and code tools are hosted unzipped. For saves hosted via Samutz's Save N Play site, just click the link... a window will open and it will show 8 save files-- don't worry each is the same. Click whichever one you want to use- and save it to your game save directory-- usually 'My Documents\GTA Vice City User Files\'. If you already have a file with that name - you will be notified by a warning if you do - you can do one of two things. You can delete the old file if you don't want your old saved game any more, or you can rename the downloaded file. Simply change the 'X' in the file name 'GTAVCsfX.b' to a different numeral between 1 and 8. This corresponds to each game slot. Once you've placed the downloaded file correctly into your saved game folder, you're ready. Fire up Vice City, and choose the game from the 'load game' menu. If, for example, the game you downloaded was 'GTAVCsf7.b', it would be in the 7th slot.If you want to look for a specific save file or Code Tool, and you are finding this table a little complicated/tedious to locate it, simply press Ctrl and F together, and type in the name of the save file/code tool you are looking for. [table] Description Author Download Link Additional Information 44% completed game (everything that can be completed at the beginning of the game, without any missions completed)@(Del)HereFull Details Here (List of everything completed)Same as above but for the STEAM version of the game (not the CD version)@radiomanHereNote - the link is for slot one on your game. To put this save in another slot rename it so the number near the end of the file name corresponds to the slot you want to put it in. Example - to put the save in slot 8 rename GTAVCsf1.b you just downloaded to GTAVCsf8.b before putting this file in your save game folder100% Completed [email protected] encountered Trial by Dirt Glitch, both Test Track and Trial by Dirt times show the same in stats, which is incorrect.

Simply play your original game until you can't go any further, load up Time Vault, use it to pass the ones you can't, go back to the original game and play on. No more searching for host or waiting for your game back. Notes: Once you purchase Pole Position, simply sitting down and getting back up will complete that asset for you. Please also note that if you complete both the Boatyard & Printworks protection ring assets, the daily revenue for both will not appear & be available to you.HereClick HereUniquecallDemarest (re-hosted by @Spuds725)One-stop deluxe Code Tool for all things Unique Jump.

Obviously it will have no effect if you've already passed Shakedown in the save you use it on.

Now swap your files back and load the game you just saved to continue playing, but with vehicles unlocked.HereClick HereAncestral RecallDemarest (re-hosted by @Spuds725)This tool will tell you everything you have left to do to get 100%. Backup your /TEXT/american.gxt file and put this one in its place. This american.gxt is the original plus what's needed, so you can continue using this even for the normal game. Backup your main.scm file and rename ancestral.scm to main.scm. Load up your game. Text will go across the screen displaying all that is left to be done. When the list is finished (or you die or get arrested), it will begin again. Once finished, swap your SCM files back to their original names (you do not need to swap back the american.gxt files), load up your save, and continue playing. Special Thanks to @GTArv for creating a new american.gxt file to work with Ancestral Recall. **Special Note for Ancestral recall - For some reason certain saves have made ancestral recall not start scrolling what is left (not sure what is causing this), Spuds has discovered a work around when this happens. Simply put your original main.scm back in place, start any task (example paramedic), immediately quit it and then save your game. Put the ancestral.scm back in the main.scm's place again (like you did above), reload the new save and it should work**HereAncestral.SCM American.GXTOriflammeDemarest (re-hosted by @Spuds725)This tool will unlock all shop weapons for you and give you $200g to spend on them.

Well worth a look.GTAForums TopicGTAGarage[/table]__________________________________________________________________________ Note: All saves done by Spuds725 (side missions and collectables) were done utilizing Demarests' Code tools - Timevault (for side missions), Shatterstorm (to collect packages), & Wanderlust (to complete jumps). I have verified that these will NOT interfere with your ability to get 100%. I completed a save to 100% utilizing timevault for everything that it let me pass, I used Wanderlust to complete the jumps, and shatterstorm to collect hidden packages. The only things I had to do were the Sunshine autos list and robbing all stores and I was still able to get 100% in my save. Note that some things will not be in your stats and if Timevault is used to complete the final mission of printworks and checkpoint charlie for the boat yard that it will not create a money pickup icon, however you are still credited with their completion and you can still get 100% on that save. Note to Demarest from Spuds725 - If you ever wish me to remove the hosting of your code tools/mods, please let me know and I will do so immediately. You should still have my email but if not, it is not hard to find. I have rehosted these based on the following you posted on your site and in your words... https://web.archive.org/web/20070810081624/http://www.tfads.com/gta3code/ (Bottom of the Page)
