Yes the game is not a copy. I already have the latest drivers as I said. But whenever there is a loading screen (blue guys) it freezes. There is no error box or anything.

I've solved the problem. It's kinda funny but, when I switch the frame sync off, I get all these problems. Now I keep it on and the game works perfectly. Thanks stef_92.

  I'm using Win XP SP2 but GTA 3 still has no text in menus. I can't install these patches because my dll versions are higher and these only apply to a no service pack windows. Do you have any suggestions?

 

Gigabyte DS3

e4300 1.8 GHz

8600GT Sonic+

2x1 GB 800 Mhz

 

Edit: I updated my VGA drivers and the game won't open at all now.

 

Edit 2: Deleted the set file, the game works now, but the text in menus appear late and the game freezer whilst the first mission is loading.

 

I have the same problem confused.gif But what set file i must delete? Theres no file like that in GTA3 User Files folder.

It should be called gta_3.set. It can be found in your GTA 3 User Files, which are located in My Documents.

You got no text or you have white boxes instead of text? If you got no text I have this problem too. Actually there is text in the menus but it appears too slow. This happens on some faster machines. I had this problem on WINXP SP 3 and now on Windows 7 too. This patch here is for different thing.

I have no text. I had Windows Vista on my computer and i didn't got that problem. But i installed Windows XP and now im trying to find hot to get rid off that problem.

 

//Edited:

 

Ok, i got a solution to get rid of that problem smile.gif So, there is text in menu but it loads very slowny, we just must wait. Then go to display options and set screen resolution to 1280x1024 and thats it. Now text will load correctly. That worked for me biggrin.gif
