build mode


Recommended Posts

for the love of god, could somebody tell me how to get into build mode???


" Build mode is essentially a way of running the game just to collect information (which can then be used to make server INI files).


To get into build mode, you must run gta-vc.exe with the -d parameter


Using Start, Run, this would be done by entering: C:\Program Files\Rockstar Games\Grand Theft Auto Vice City\gta-vc.exe -d and pressing OK. (Use the relevant path to your Vice City directory, this will vary based on installations). "



i do that and f*ck all happens.... any ideas?


i can go to run and put


C:\Program Files\Rockstar Games\Grand Theft Auto Vice City\gta-vc.exe


but as soon as i put a -d on the end of it, it says it can be found... help?

You have to enclose the path to gta-vc.exe in quotation marks.




"C:\Program Files\Rockstar Games\Grand Theft Auto Vice City\gta-vc.exe" -d


Put that in Start >> Run, and the game should start.


From the documentation:



When In-Game


/BUILD  Activates build mode, and takes you out of the camera mode.

/V <Vehicle ID>  Creates a vehicle with the type specified. Vehicle IDs can be seen in Vice City\data\default.ide file.

/SAVE  Writes your car's position, ID and colors to savedpositions.txt file (in your VC directory)

If used when on foot, this command will create an empty player class.
