^Well done, what was the other 2%?

I missed Cone Crazy mission.

Cone crazy... One of first things i did... Real easy way to make a ton of money as the prize money doubles each time you beat your record.... Took me about 40 minutes to earn over 6 million dollars.

 

Congrats on the 100%

I'm using Ipod touch 4G. I cant get past 2ed level. It crashes just as I get to the boat every time. And before that it crashed a lot just trying to get the first mission done. it runs from 20-1 fps most of the time. Anyone know some way to fix this?

Fix this? The only "fix" for this issue is that you go out and get your broke ass an iPhone... or a decent Android device... or an iPad. Something that's better than an A4 powered device XD

Dude, chill out. Not everyone can afford to keep up with the latest in technology. There's no need to be rude. Please keep all your replies as civil as you can.

Does "XD" not mean anything anymore?

My phone (Samsung Galaxy Captivate Glide) Is not supported by vice city therefore it doesn't show up on google play for me and I cant download it, My phone was powerful enough to play GTA 3 on maximum settings without lag so Vice City should play smooth aswell, Anything I can do?

There is probably a way to root your phone and make it appear as a supported device and "trick" the play store in allowing you to purchase it..... certainly beyond the scope of this board....

 

Realize there is always the chance of "bricking" your phone by rooting it so if you do go that route, be sure you understand what you are doing and how to restore it back to normal if you do root it....

 

I am running mine on a Galaxy S3 which is still relatively high end and have had a few issues---

Only redeemable for USA customers. Where did you get this code from anyway?

 

Anyone who's after the converted PC audio files to replace the original, you'll have to PM me as I'm assuming I can't publicly post the link here.

 

Also, here's an ultimate starter savegame for you lazy people... including myself ph34r.gif

There is a way, but it involves piracy... confused.gif and it can't be discused here, so apart from that you should try what Spuds suggest, but you won't get help with this here.

- Howling Pete's biker emporium (across from the biker bar) now has opaque glass but is still breakable. Newcomers wouldn't have any clue as to the treasure within..

After the mission Hog Tied, a cutscene explicitly reveals the location of goods inside with full transparancy. The whole game has transparency issues except for plain glass (the emporium usually has a logo over the glass as to not make its contents todo obvious) so no surprise that they did this to keep it less obvious.

 

Also the following songs are completely removed from the radio:

- Michael Jackson Billy Jean (Flash FM)

- Want to be startin' somethin (Wave 103)

- Herbie Hancock Rockit (Wildstyle)

- Afrika Bambaataa and the Soulsonic Force Looking for the perfect beat (Wildstyle)

- Ozzy Osbourne Bark at the moon (V-Rock)

- Kate Bush Wow (Emotion 98.3)

I'm not sure how that code works (not in the apple cult), but I'm sure it was not intended for wide distribution--- so removed.....

 

If the OP (original poster) of this wants to explain to me how this is not illegal they can PM me....

 

Otherwise--- I'm considering this a WAREZ post and the code has been removed from the above posts.

 

Remember-- GTA forums is NOT a warez site.... we want game developers to receive the money they deserve for their copyrighted content so they can bring us bigger and better games..... if they can't make money, the games will stop coming.

 

Thanks,

It should be easily fixed, I'll show it tomorrow.

Correction: We give game developers lots of money so they can make crappy 10 year handheld ports that dont even have the right icons for the weapons.tounge.gif

 

That aside- I think you can gift people those codes ala Steam gifts and once 1 user uses them the code becomes invalid- but I could be wrong.

You must've done something wrong somewhere. At least backup your saves.

 

After this 1.1 update, they still haven't fixed the Mac10/Uzi HUD bug even though it's one of the first bugs most will encounter.

It pisses me off they even use the GTA3 icons in the first place. How lazy can you be to replace icons that were already made by reusing old ones? Its complete bull.

Near the entire game is reused from a formula originally created 10 years ago.

Anyway, what would you prefer? Those ugly color-coded ones?

This game is way too easy in comparison to the original and the movement for tommy is like a 90 years old man in half paralysed body,the texture is pixelated and they change the original icon to a more gay 21st century present day.

 

Good thing I have GTA Vice city in PC.

They look a hell of a lot better than the ones there now. If you think they're "ugly" then you miss the whole point of the style of the game, which I wouldnt put past you.

As said above, the game branches out to the casual gamer who wants to pick up the game whenever and just have fun. I'll agree the pricing of each property was a step too far but not game-breakingly so.

The movement for Tommy is the same as it has always been and the textures are generally better if anything.

 

Use a more comprehensive dig than 'more gay' and don't pull reasons to hate on this game out of your ass in future. Take those tips to heart if you want anyone to take your 'argument' seriously but don't count on it with that member title and a poor copy-paste attitude of Zee.

You lecturing anyone on tastes? That's gold.

The color is still there in pink and blue which is Vice City's mascot colors but the tacky background colors had to go. From San Andreas onwards, the colorless weapon icons return over and over even in VCS.

If I 'missed' the whole point of the game, explain why they chose to discontinue the original icons from all future releases of Vice City.

The Background Colours in the original were used to identify weapon category, which matched it's corona glow, since Vice City was the first game to use weapon categories it was done as a small extra detail to help people get used to swapping out weapons in each category so only being able to carry one shotgun, all Shotguns used Green Coronas and the Weapon icon background were Green, etc, that kind of thing which like I said, was just a small extra detail to match up with the weapons in game.

 

Then again, unlike Zee, I know why they went for the GTA3 style, the GTA3 style HUD uses less space on screen compared to the Vice City version, which moved the ammo count down and moved the Wanted Stars out to the left, seeing as screen space is important on these devices, it makes much more sense to keep the GTA3 style HUD and edit it rather than use the VC one which pushed into more screen space. It IS an interesting choice that they re-used the GTA3 ones for certain weapons (but also made new ones for the VC weapons), but what's more interesting is that they gave us higher resolution versions of these icons (128x128 as opposed to 64x64) and even then they DID include the GTA3 weapons to that VC never had, it was like an additional nod to modders, like saying here, take these.

Well,My textures for iPad 2 is awful and I swear Tommy movement is different in comparison to the original.

They did, along with many other songs:

Ozzy Osbourne "Bark At The Moon"

Kate Bush "Wow"

Herbie Hanc**k "Rock It"

Afrika Bambaataa "Looking For The Perfect Beat"

And a couple of songs from Radio Espantoso.

 

Good news is that you can easely replace the audio with the original one from the PC version. Plus it's much higher quality, than the compressed mobile audio.
