Multiple problems merged and LOCKED

Recommended Posts

//EDIT BY SPUDS//

 

Obviously ryubond007 has some system problems but his posts are kind of all over the place and I don't know what problems he is still having.

 

I PMed him and asked him to start over with his problems including posting all his system specs.

 

I merged all his real problem threads into this one and am just locking this (he had about 9 or 10 threads and some duplicates)-- since this is a multiple thread merging the order of posts will not make any sense.

 

Please don't flame ryubond007 for starting another thread.

TRY RE-INSTALLING THE GAME. REMOVE ANY MODS OR FILES WHICH DIFFER FROM THE ORIGINAL FILES. UPDATE ALL YOUR SOUND CARD AND VIDEO CARD DRIVERS!!!

 

Try to find a working Caps Lock key too.

Did you re-install the game like I said?

 

Anyway, it sounds like the game is having a hard time accessing the audio from your CD drive. I'd re-install, but this time taking care to also install the optional 'Radio Stations'. This will allow all audio files to be read off the hard-drive, thus removing the need for access to the disc drive. Of course, this will only be a viable option to you if you have some spare hard-drive space.

Whenever i try to make a complete install with all the audio files while it is installing from the second cd after some time it stops doing things and then after a long time gives an error of a file ....... however whenever i used this play cd in my game it worked perfectly!!! .....

 

So My Question:

is this ok if i install the game and copy the audio files in the game installation dir later? .......

Your play disc is the disc that contains the audio, and it is scratched, and the EMOTION file is corrupt, so the disc is broken.

Because when in-game, the CD is used for accessing specific audio files only. Perhaps the corrupt ones on your disc are rare or unused audio files. Or perhaps the installation of audio files is different to the reading of them. I'm not sure, but there's a few possibilities for you.

 

 

and my second question was if i use this cd for the audio files then this will harm my cute cd?  sad.gif

I'm not exactly sure what you mean by that. But using the Audio CD to play the audio files - rather than installing the optional 'Radio Stations' installation package, which installs all audio files onto the hard-drive - will not affect your CD. The only thing it will change is the speed of the game. That is, accessing files off the local hard-drive is generally quicker than accessing them off a disc.

 

 

AND ONE MORE THING i have a 4gb disk ( not kidding ) 256mb ram and 64mb video card ........... copying the cd audio to my disk is recommended for me??

4GB is more than enough to hold the audio files. However, if you have a lot of other stuff installed on your PC, it may not be a good idea. The game will run quicker if the files are on the hard-drive, but if you don't have much space left on your hard-drive, I wouldn't do it.

Could you try putting the audio files on your hard-drive? At least try. It won't hurt, and it could well fix the problem.

 

After all the topics you've made in this forum, I suggest returning your copy of Vice City, and getting another. Your game has a lot of problems. Far more than should occur to any one person.

i was just checking the files in the audio folder of my hard disk .... ... i found that there were many files like BUST_01 TO BUST_28 which were supposed to play each time i get busted ...... i don't remember last time when i was busted and then in the next screen i was standing near a police station and this thing played in the background "TOMMY VERCETTI IS AN INNOCENT MAN" dozingoff.gif

From the sounds of it, you can hear the busted audio.

 

You've never heard the 'Tommy Vercetti is an innocent man' phrase before? I suggest you play the game through, instead of worrying about imaginary problems.

Ok i have a real problem this time .... devil.gif

 

i'am using windows xp and whenever i change the compability to Windows 98 and play the game , textures load perfectly but there is a problem in cutscenes ...... sometimes funky voices come out of it and sometimes lips and voices don't match and cutscenes ends before the dialogs.....i copied all the files from Audio folder of my cd to the Audio folder of my disk ..... still no change...

 

And if i select xp then beside textures loading problems there are some object loading problems as well .... like in 98 whenever i go to take that sparrow and other helicopters they are always there but when i try to take them in xp most of the time when the textures around them are not loaded they don't appear....

I can recall you asking this exact problem a few times now... confused.gif

 

Try using Windows XP mode, but with the version 1.1 patch. Update your sound card and video card drivers. Re-install the game. Read all the pinned topics in the Vice City forums. Check out Take2 Games.com. Everything I've told you time and time before. You're not going to get any new or different answers.
