Excerpt from the GTA2 Site on Rockstargames.com

 

 

# You will NEED to run "AutoDetect" from the Program Menu BEFORE running the game for the first time.

 

# In AutoDetect you can choose your Rendering Engine (Method of Graphics Display). If your Graphics card supports 3D acceleration then please choose "Direct3D"; otherwise please choose "DirectDraw" or whatever other option appears in the drop-down menu. If you are unsure please choose "Direct3D" (you can always change it back later).

 

# Once you are done with the AutoDetect, choose "Save" to save your settings. You can now run GTA2!

Just click on "START > PROGRAMS > Rockstar Games > GTA2 > GTA2" to start.

I went looking on the internet for you:

 

 

# GTA2 will then be installed and a program group created for you in "START > PROGRAMS > Rockstar Games > GTA2".

 

# You will NEED to run "AutoDetect" from the Program Menu BEFORE running the game for the first time.

 

 

I read that, its just that I don't know where to find AutoDetect...Ah, maybe I have to go mycomputer -> c:/ -> rockstar ->Autodetect

 

On the computer I was installing it on, I didn't have administrator access so I couldn't find program files in the c:/, that must be the problem.

I'm out of ideas sad.gif

 

Apparently, the Auto Detect ain't coming with the downloaded GTA2 Installer so you have to aquire it somewhere else. Dunno where though.
