Whenever I put a mod in it gives me the "unhandled expectation" and crashes when I try to load my game. I am using the no-cd crack. I don't have a legit CD. How can I fix this? Buy a real CD? Or do the mods just hate me.... I know the drill: Replace TSD & DFF, change handling and default.... Correct? I used VCMM and it said it installed fine, but it gave the evil unhandled expectation when I tried to load my game..... As for my system specs, lets just say I completed the game 100% and it runs fine. But I want those mods sooooo bad!

Hey, well I have that one random freeze problem. I'm just normally playing and the video will lock up completely but the audio keeps going and doesnt' crash. Sometimes it happens in 30 minutes sometimes in 3 hours, its totally random. It isn't THAT big of a problem, but I really hate games that are so unreliable like this. Of course I love the GTA series, but they really need to address all these bugs. I already tried the headphones solutions, and I also tried lowering my settings and reinstalling, and none of them worked... help!

 

My comp specs:

2.26 GHZ P4

i845 64mb video card

256 MB RAM

35GB Hard Drive (10 gbs left)

Windows XP

 

PS: I already e-mailed tech support once and they e-mailed back. Then I e-mailed them, and they haven't replied after around 2 weeks. I just e-mailed a new letter last week, and they haven't responded!!!

Problem #1:

Textures take too long to load.

 

Solution: Turn frame limiter on.

 

THANK YOU THANK YOU. I registered just to ask this. I also had another problem where I would get a pink loading box while going places. I fixed that by turning the draw distance down one notch from full. Christ you would think a 9800 XT would be able to run this, hell a PS2 does. Now it runs beautifully.

my problem is that when ever I get into a vehicle with "Wildstyle" playing my game just freezes/locks up.I know its not my computer because my computer had to be replaced(new mother board,new top of line pentium 4,etc,etc) Im running win XP but previously my PC was running 98 and still did this.Is there anyway I can just delete all traces of wildstyle or could someone make a program that identifies what radio station the vehicle is set to before you get in...I'm getting sick and tired of doing maybe 5 or so missions then grabing the first vehicle I see to get away and...

I just got GTA vice city and it worked very good for a few days (I've played about 15 hours with no problems) but recently the game started to lock up every time when trying to approach The paper works from different directions. For example the game locks every time when I drive through the middle island where my estate is located just before the bridge on the other side. When the game does this lock up, I can still heat the radio channel I was listening to...

 

My system:

 

XP pro + updates

Athlon XP 2700+

GeForce 4 Ti4200

SB Live! Value

512mb of ram

 

All drivers are up to date. Any ideas?

OK someone please help me with this!

I can not get Vice TXD Tool by Spooky to work properly. I have followed tutorials, still dont work. When replacing a picture inside a .txd, the picture doesnt appear. The picture preview screen goes all black. When i run the game, the object changed is black. It is very annoying. I have tried cancelling when the alpha screen pops up, as well as bringing in the alpha. It still goes black!

 

WTF!

Can someone please help me, i am fairly new to modding, but i have got many other mods to work.

Hello, i'm having many problems with gta:vc

 

one: I put an mp3 in my mp3 folder, and I read the mp3report.txt, and it says that there are 0 unsupported types of mp3's in the directory. also, I don't know how to run the song..

 

two: fps is very very smooth, but if I play for atleast 5 minutes, frames will drop to 1 and then I have to hit esc to make it go away (I will try and solve this by turning on frame limiter)

I have a big problem with Vice City.

I can play it perfectly until I go to the Colonels boat during the first mission, when i get close to the pink marker the game crashes and i get a blue screen.

Does anyone know what to do?

I have a Geforce FX 5600, 2.00 GHz, 512 Mb.

 

It would be great if someone could help me because its really boring not being able to even to the first mission.

First off I am having a problem with VTA:VC (suprise suprise) When I start the game it takes an abnormaly long amount of time to start (like 3-5 min) then if I go to Display Settings in VC they are at min and if I change them as soon as I move the mouse it changes back to the min. While in game at first it will play fine (for my PC) but after a very short while I notice that any collision will cause a small amount of lag for a split second of course this will get worse rather quickly (under 20 mins) I have tried everything infact many of them I haven't seen mentioned here. I will list them to the best of my ability.

 

GTAVC patch

Video card drivers update

MOBO drivers update

Sound card drivers update

Via/AGP drivers update

uninstalling GTAVC

uninstalling SmartGart (ATI Radeon POS)

Turning off AGP

removing my video drivers completly (no reinstall)

installing just the basic driver for video card

looking for driver conflicts (had one with a printer but that was not the problem)

Confirmed not a cooling issue (three case fans)

disabled any other running apps

tried everything on the take2 website

and many others just ask I will let you know what I have or haven't tried

 

1.1 AMD Athlon

700+ pc133 RAM

HDD 1: 80 GB Maxtor or equiv.

HDD 2: 120 WD caviar

Philips DVDRW228 (DVD+R/RW burner)

Mash*ta DVD-RAM drive

Connect3d Radeon 7000 (powered by product)(this is a dual monitor card and yes I know about the issues and have delt with them and yes I can get VC to run on both at same time)

SB live values (ya ya ya I know POS but hey it works)

OS 98se (was ME and yes it ran VC fine)

no firewall

no anti-virus

no internet (on that PC)

 

However on my many and almost constant contact with techs from ATI, Connect3d, MicroSoft, ect I have found many solutions for other peoples problems.

 

DDhelp

I had a night mare with this as it could possibly be a virus or spy/ad-ware problem also for many of you who don't know it could have to do with video codecs my suggestion is to uninstall all video programs (including Windows Media player, DivX, Nemo, ect) and then run anti-virus, Ad-aware, SB:S&D, and regclean. If that don't fix it then you may have a more serious problem and should consider reinstalling the OS.

 

Anyone running Windows XP should read this.

(This problem may or may not affect other OS

If your computer freezes but audio is still playing and CTRL+ALT+DEL don't work and you have a VIA chipset you need to read this.

Okay here is the solution I found (I hope) it's not so much the driver's as the order of install. This makes sense because your video driver is dependant on your VIA chipset (or equiv) that drives your AGP slot and the game is well dependant on both of them. So you should try to do this uninstall your game first then uninstall your video card drivers then install the latest VIA or equiv drivers then install the latest driver for your video card (even if it has caused problems in the past this is important because it is ment for the newer driver of the AGP slot and may have problems with it otherwise) and lastly the game remember to not to try to install everything at one time REBOOT every time you install a driver. Beyond this good luck. (didn't have these problems with ME huh wounder why)

Try adding a \w to the run line if you use a short cut or start the game from the run dialog. I don't know if this will work never tried it but works with many PC game.

Basically, they say to shut down any programs running in the background, empty the temporary files folders, check the cd for scratches, turn off active desktop, and make sure your copy isn't a burnt one.

Revert back to the original main.scm file. I can guarentee this is your problem. You've altered the mission script, which renders old saved games useless.

Pretty likely you've got an illegal copy of the game there mate. Not much you can do if that's the case. If you truly have a legal copy, try removing any smudges/scratches of the disc.

Uninstall the game. Now re-install. (This won't affect saved games). Now load up your saved game. See if it happens again. If it does, start a new game. See if it still occurs. If it doesn't, your original saved game is corrupt.

This topic needs a clean up...

 

 

I agree-- do you think we should just scrap it and start a new one??

 

I think a PC player who is knowledgeable about such things should start a new thread-- copy over the known fixes and we can go from there....

 

anybody want to volunteer--

 

I can copy over new fixes and edit stuff to the current thread, but I'm not sure which actually work. You PC players would have to direct me in this (if anyone thinks this one is saveable)

I'll make a new topic for it if you want. I've probably encountered more bugs and problems than most people who've played Vice City on PC, and if I'm stuck for a solution, I'm sure someone else will be able to help out.

 

I think a new thread would be for the best. I'll run through this one and get all the bugs and solutions, and put them in a new topic. In fact, I'm making the new topic at this very moment.

I'll pin it and unpin this one----

 

thanks for doing this-- hope my hints (for you to do this weren't too obvious...)

 

Everyone should consider this thread closed--

 

New official bug list is now located here.
