Graphical Errors

Recommended Posts

Monki

I've had this problem since I bought the original GTA3, and now I notice it's in Vice City as well. Here are some pics... Geocities has strange problems with pictures being done on forums and crap, so I can only link you to a crappy page I put them on....

 

Pictures are HERE

 

My PC specs are as follows:

 

WindowsXP Home

AthlonXP 2000+

768 megs pc133 RAM

40 gig HD

GeForce 4 Ti4200 128MB 8xAGP

Onboard sound

 

If someone can tell me what's causing this, I'd really appreciate it..

 

BTW. I cropped these pics. Not a strange resolution

my god, stop whining. if i could have those graphic errors instead of what i have now, i would be so thankful. I have water where roads are supposed to be, and occasionally every object in the game will become wireframed. :(

Excuse me for saying this.. but where do you people get off telling me I'm a jackass in so many words. I just wanted to know if there is any way to fix this problem in this game. Kind of reminds me why I never post in forums anyway.... people are just assholes.

Monki, you're a picky little bastard.  No offense, but DAMN, I hate people like you.

 

Sorry to flame.  But you're just as bad as almost everyone I know.  Way too picky and complains about everything.

 

Some people can't even play the game, and some people with top-notch video cards get freaky graphic flashes and bad textures and you're complaining about the squares on the lights...  And, even worse, it's just part of the game.

 

:furious:

 

(Sorry about that, I know I got a little carried away...  Reading posts about "unbearable graphic mishaps" all day, and then reading this topic...)

my my my... just because this is the only game I own that has a problem i haven't fixed yet and came here to see if it was a real problem... then being told i'm too picky.... now I definatley know why I stay away from forum freaks. I never really complained. I just wanted to know if there was a solution to my problem. Someone could have just nicely said it's a part of the game, but no. Everyone has to be a prick about something, eh? Fact is, out of all these years getting  help for sh*t, this is the first time I've been flamed about it before.. lol. So... I assume it's just a game problem and nothing wrong with my system setup or tweaks or registry settings...

That would be correct. And yes, people around here have a way of blowing things way outta proportion.... and some don't realize that Life and gtaforums.com aren't the same thing....... no body here is FORCED to come into the troubleshooting topics and fix all of the problems..... really now....

After all the flaming you still don't catch that drift?   :D

 

I'd have to agree though.  Both of those little "glitches" are quite annoying.  Not necessarily the boxes around the lights, but more so the trees.  Whenever driving through a shrubby area you can never see what you're driving toward.  I ran over my patient whilst doing the Paramedic missions because of those damn trees.  All the way to Level 8 and I ran over the guy...

 

The whole engine that VC:PC uses is a big piece of crap.  Just like Mafia's.

They are both two totally different engines and I don't know how you say it is bad when I had to turn to playing Mafia as opposed to GTA3 because GTA3 was hardly playable on my old PC.

you could make sure that your draw distance is at the max, your brightness is at a comfortable level, and turn ON a lot of options if your box can handle it.

I have draw distance full, every option enabled, but it doesn't do anything. It's no big deal really. Yet.... how is it that some people who replied got the impression that I want 3D trees? When did I ever say that anywhere? I happen to like the way they did the 2D objects in the game, but not the bounding boxes and outlines on the stuff. It really doesn't take that much away from the game. Took me a few days to even notice it. Thanks for all the "help" anyway.

ya know......

 

if you feel the need to get rid of the trees entirely then just go into the txd.img and find the file for the tree (forgot what it was called) and edit it in paint to solid black. then import it back and save and what not. now you have invisible trees  :)
