I installed the game just fine. It loads up, plays the intro, and I start the game. About 8 seconds later, it crashes. :furious:



-Win 2000 Pro w/Service Pack 3

-Radeon 9000

-AMD Athlon 1.1 Ghz

-44x CD-Rom drive

OHH! Never mind! I fixed it! thank god... :rah:

All I did was install WinXP over Win2000 and it works fine.  Well, it's a little slow, but I don't know how to fix the frame rate problems  :/ .  Iff someone could help me with that, I'd greatly appreciate it.


BTW, what's wrong with my username??? :wtf:

Shady, man I totally am with you. The radeon 9000 mobility has problems with the frames in gta3 but in vice city it runs smooth like butter. Tell me if you find out how to fix it.

Have you turned the frame limiter on/off in the options???


Yeah, I tried it with and without.  It really doesn't make much of a difference... :/


EDIT:  I'm thinking about OCing my Radeon and Athlon, but I'm not sure I know how to do it-plus I'm a little scared of burning my stuff up! :p I have a couple of big fans in my comp, but I'm not sure if it's enough... :/

You didn't say how much ram you have, if you don't have much then getting more would help with your frame rate.

Well, I have 512 MB of RAM.  Most of my friends don't even use computers, they all have PS2, Xbox, or Gamecube... :sarcasm:
