Bug List with Solutions

Recommended Posts

Hey, I've got a really annoying problem.

After playing the "Martha's mug shot" mission at the Film Studio, a police helicopter is CONSTANTLY chasing me even if my wanted level is 0.

OS: Win XP 32bit

GFX: Asus HD Radeon 5450

RAM: 4gb DDR3

CPU: Intel Celleron G530 dual core @ 2.66 ghz

--

Direct x 9.0c

Thanks in advance!

I've been playing VC for years and never had this problem, I haven't used the "Leavemealone" cheat while in the mission. Almost done finishing the game without using any cheats. As I said, I've played VC for years, even with the cheats it never happened but this time, it happens. I always save game after each mission and I did the same before playing Martha's mug shot mission. I've tried it today with the wanted level cheat (since you get 5 stars after you take 3 pictures), but it still chases me. I might try to destroy the helicopter while in the mission.

It's really annoying sad.gif

Everyone--

 

This thread is NOT for posting your problems... if you have a problem, post it in a NEW thread.

 

This thread is for posting solutions to known specific bugs-- or for clarifying or adding new solutions for already posted bugs...

 

That being said... I will be splitting the recent user posts into their own threads--- if you don't see your recent posts here-- that is why.... look in the recent threads to find your posts.... I will try and name the thread's appropriately.

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: http://web.archive.org/web/20070219182439r...com/gta3/fixes/ Demarest's bug/fixes page - contains a download for both a fix if you have the bug, and a preventer if you don't have it yet.

 

The fix by Demarest is not available on archive.org anymore. Someone should reupload it...

Not sure why that snapshot didn't work... I just randomly picked a snapshot page of his site and the file was there.... try this one.... I just downloaded it....

 

http://web.archive.org/web/20070613105717/...com/gta3/fixes/

 

or direct link to file... http://web.archive.org/web/20070613105717/...itglitchfix.zip

 

If either of those don't work--- post back here and PM me--- If the file is invalid or whatnot, I am positive I have a working copy of this somewhere (on a PC that is gathering dust in the corner of my bedroom)...

 

Spuds...

 

//edit//

 

FYI-- thought there was a readme with it--- the instructions for using are on his archived page--- quoted from there....

 

 

VC Cuban Outfit bug fixer/preventer (467 KB) - The original game was programmed in a way that sometimes, the Cuban outfit isn't readily available without dramatic acrobatics. This changes that. If you have not yet experienced the bug and would like to prevent it, use preventcubanoutfitglitch.scm in place of your main.scm, load your game, and the bug will never effect your game. If you've already been afflicted with the bug, use fixcubanoutfitglitch.scm in place of your main.scm to fix it. You will immediately be prompted to save. Save and then switch your main.scm back to the original OR use preventcubanoutfitglitch.scm as above to prevent it from coming back which IS possible.

 

This may or may not work with the Steam version of VC.

 

 

I went ahead and updated the link on the first page of this thread (Problem #14)-- I copied the above link to it and it appears to be a valid link (works for me).....

at problem 14, the physical solution does not work on pc. and at deamarests solution, i dont understand the instructions. "If you've already been afflicted with the bug, use fixcubanoutfitglitch.scm in place of your main.scm to fix it. You will immediately be prompted to save. Save and then switch your main.scm back to the original OR use preventcubanoutfitglitch.scm as above to prevent it from coming back which IS possible." do i have to delete main.scm and replace it with fixcubanoutfitglitch.scm?

What's not to understand? You just re-name you Original Main.scm file to something like MainORIGINAL.scm and rename the code tools' .scm to main.scm...as Demarest explained...This way you have a back-up of the Original in case something messes up, you do not have to re-install the game to get the original back..

 

 

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

 

How does that not work on PC? All it says is to make sure you do the missions "copland" and "No Escape"(the Vercetti Estate mission AND the First mission for the Malibu club) BEFORE you do the final mission for Avery, which is "Two Bit Hit"-and you will NOT get the glitch...How can you not not understand that?-lol tounge2.giflol.gif

Use the fix if you have it..... This will move the clothes pickup icon to the correct place

 

After this just put the prevent one in its place and leave it there.... It will work with your game and prevent it from occurring again (ever).

 

Think of the prevent one as being a game patch.

On PC problem #32, it may be caused by rain and the increased wave size. If you're using the seaplane, attempting to take off perpendicular to the wave direction usually helps there (it did with me).

 

PC problems #18 and #34 are repeated, as far as I see, and when, in the pause menu or (equally likely, but obviously rarer) the main menu screen, clicking the mouse doesn't work (happened with me a few times), either use the keyboard or (if you're in the pause menu) unpause and pause again, and do the same if you can't move the camera when in-game. If the in-game problem persists, try toggling the invert mouse Y-axis setting, though it doesn't always work, in which case you must restart the game (loading saves doesn't work). It seems to happen at random.

 

As mentioned in the ReadMe.txt along with the rest of the installation, if you experience slowdowns or 3-second freezes while entering/exiting/driving a vehicle, defrag your hard drive now and regularly to fix and prevent the issue from reappearing. It's worth the 2 or 3 hours it took me.

 

On PC problem #14, according to the wikia, the mission "The Job" will also misplace the cuban outfit.

I realize that this is an old thread and all, but I just got the game today on Steam and I'm having this strange issue where it'll black screen at random after exiting the pause menu. I also changed the compatibilty mode to Windows 98/ME because my mouse wasn't working at all, so that solved that issue. But now there's this issue! >.< I should also mention that I had the same problem with San Andreas; I mean the exact same! Is there any way at all to fix this annoying problem?

I am playing on PS4 and I've got the bug where the Top Fun van for the RC track on the beach just doesn't spawn. I've seen the solution. Just reporting that it happens on PS4 too.

Hi

 

I have been playing GTA Vice City for years now,but now since i got my new PC i have come across this new problem.I didn't have this problem on any of my other OS's,my last OS was Windows 7.

 

Problem #3 PC. The game's Textures are not displaying correctly in the game,especially when going over the southern most bridge.There seems to be a grey/beige large textures(where the road should be),but if you go to Umberto Robina cafe area you can go under the grey/beige large textures and you can see the road again!!.

 

And i can't see any loading screens when going over bridges.I don't have any mods installled to my game.
