Best way to install Vice City mods


Recommended Posts

Which is the best? VCMM, mod installer or manuall installation? I'm asking this because I'm having troubles with some mods, mostly cars. After some time playing with them I get the Unhandled Exception error, even though I tested each one of them when I installed them.

Manual install is the best. With auto-installers, if you're blessed they'll just crash your game. If you're lucky they'll wipe out your install. And under normal circumstances they'll infect your computer. Install one at a time and test. That includes not just spawning/finding the car and cruising it, but also ripping every removable piece off, flipping it, and blowing it up. I downloaded a Walton mod once, whenever a fender came off the game crashed. And sometimes wily modders hide some, err, "exotic" content on the bottom of their cars. Happened with a tow truck once. Luckily, I always look through my .txd before I install it to catch this stuff. Yet another reason you should install manually and check your files. Also, only use trusted modding sites. GTAPLACE is cool, but about 35% of the content I've downloaded there contained an infostealer or worse. That's why you should keep a good security program like Norton loaded at all times.


Hope this helped!
