Help - the 'fastest' boat is really slow!

Recommended Posts

Hi, I don't know if anyone can help but I've got a really frustrating problem. I've been having a blast playing Vice City, but I'm stuck on a mission for Diaz. The boat which is supposed to be really fast is actually really, really slow. After reloading a thousand times I managed to escape the police in 'the fastest boat' but in the next mission where I need to outrun some other boats it is absolutely impossible because the boat is so slow! Any ideas what I can do about it?

Is it really slow or are you just not catching up to the other boats because of turns/crashes and what not??? It is difficult if you follow the other boats path.

 

I've never heard of this is why I ask-- I don't believe there are different throttle settings for boats-- either full throttle or nothing...

 

Can I assume you are on PC?? Any issues with other vehicles...

 

If you think it might be your route.... ignore the other boats and try this route....

if you just want to be past this mission, then I'd just submit it to save n play (if you are on PC version)....

 

Let us know if you are on the steam version-- which saves are not compatible with the regular PC version.

Unfortunately it's the speed of the boat, not the route I'm taking, I think. I watched a youtube of the mission and on the video the boat was about twice as fast as mine. It is the PC version, not steam - does that mean I can upload my save and get someone to help out? How would I do that?

 

Many thanks.

yes... its called Save N Play.... instructions on how it works are in the first post, as well as free save (easy to use) hosting site run by one of our members...

Just upload, copy the link they give you, post a new message in the thread-- with the mission you want done and a link to the save.

Proper ettiquette is to save your game near the mission start point-- with full armor and health and an appropriate weapon load out if necessary....

 

Obviously try the fix above first-- you will get more satisfaction out of the game by completing it yourself.

Try toggling the Frame Limiter from Display options. This could be a result of lag. In that case, lower your settings.

Can you post your system specifications?

Athlon X2 6000, 2GB RAM, Radeon 3870 - I don't think it's lag as it generally runs very smoothly. I'll have a go at toggling the frame limiter, if not the save option sounds like a good idea. Thanks to both of you!

i know this thread is pretty old now, but i am having the exact same problem. i finally got past "the fastest boat" and am now stuck at the boat yard mission. impossible with this slow as a turtle speed boat.

 

richdebc, maybe this will notify your e-mail or something and you'll see my question. did you find a solution?

You are also on PC????

 

Did you try the "frame limiter" suggestion above??

 

I would also try some other vid stuff-- reduce draw distance, maybe even reduce the video resolution when you try this mission-- really just to see if that is the problem... perhaps your machine is having problems rendering the water and it slowing the boat down??

 

There is always the save N play option if that is the problem...

 

Good luck..

 

PS if you do find a solution, please post back... it might help another if they have the same problem...

 

And thanks for using the search feature... for troubleshooting problems, it generally is easier to post to your own thread (when you get to posting system specs and stuff-- keeps the helpers from confusing one PC with another..)..
