You aren't holding a directional key while the game loads, are you? Often if you do this, the game considers the current position of the directional key to be 'zero' and thus when the key is released, Tommy will be moving in the opposite direction.

 

If not, just update your video drivers and reinstall the game. Also have a look at Take2 Games.com. They have a good tech help section.

@jehde: You have a controller plugged in and it has fallen behind your desk or something and a stick/key is being held down. Free it up or unplug it and you're good to go.

I can explain. Rushed advice. I'm on sh*tty 28k internet for the weekend, and I recalled some advice on Take2's website in the case of Tommy spinning in circles. I think it had something to do with video drivers...

 

Anyway, I apologise, jehde, for hijacking your thread.

Did you check to see if you had a controller pad with a directional key stuck down? That's the most obvious and common reason for this problem.

 

Now I've had the chance to look over Take2's help again, I have a few more alternate solutions. tounge.gif

 

1.) Kill all unneccessary processes.

 

2.) Unplug and disable all controllers/joysticks you aren't using.

 

3.) If you are using Windows XP & a Gravis game pad or a USB Logitech wingman of any kind there are problems with using those game pads with GTA Vice City at this time. The only workaround is to not use those controllers. Using these in XP will cause your player to go in circles to the left.

 

5.) If you have any devices plugged into your serial port besides just your mouse will cause circle movements to the left. (Handheld Palm's, 3d tablets or serial cameras)

 

6.) Any USB 'non-mouse' devices connected will cause this as well. Remove them all and the game should play fine. (Scanners, Printers, Handheld Palm’s, Digital Cameras)

 

7.) If you are using a joystick or game pad that has a Z axis (Throttle), make sure that the throttle is set to zero (Middle). If it is not you will experience camera rotation moving completely to the left or right depending on where the throttle is set.

 

8.) Please note: That the use of any cheat codes, 3rd party mods, editors, no-cd patches or trainers are not supported by tech support and can effect the way the game plays normally. You should uninstall any of these 3rd party programs and reinstall the game. If you saved a game with any of these mods installed they will need to be deleted as well.

 

Pretty much quoted directly from Take2 Games.
