dude were my vc

FOR the last 2 days i have trying to get Vice city to work on my computer, it does not load at all, it does nothing only a little spinning disk appears next to the mouse for about a second thats it, i have updated all my drivers and reinstalled vice city twice, also heard people talking about deleting gta_vc.set but i dont have that file is something wrong with my gta disks. I have not got the game to work once. Any help would be greatfull. and i even tryed to update my gtavc.exe with that patch but it did not work becuase its said its a wrong version, and before you accuse me NO its not a warez version, i got from a game shop and it was algit purchase. Also i have tryed everything on the rockstar page, but still nothing but the installation works fine. gta 3 worked fine on my system. Any help would be greatfull. And also please dont ban me for this but i even tryed a no cd patch JUST TO SEE IF IT WAS MY CD DRIVE, i it still did not work just a black screen for about a second and back to the desktop.

there is no error messages at all nothing with or with out the no cd patch, any suggestions would be great.

p3 800mhz

128 ram

geforce 2 fx 400

sound balster pci 128

Here's the fix! biggrin.gif


Had the same problem b4. Only thing U have to do is go 2 the My Documens folder and open the GTA Vice City User Files. In there U must del the corrupted "gta_vc.set" and everything will be allright.

Isomeone already told me to this but i dont have the "gta_vc.set" anywhere, my gta vc user files folder is empty and i think this is becuase i have not yet got it to start yet. thanks for the advice is most welcome, but does anyone else have a solution that i could try. confused.gif

I have the same problem and so does my mate, we both have Win98SE and the game won't start. Tried the fixes and reinstalls, I have GTA3 installed and it runs fine.

Most annoying problem:(
