@Duhillestpunk Sometimes an error occurs when the game does not detect a virtual image, 

"Please insert your GTA Vice City CD, or press ESC to cancel" Fix

 

It doesn’t do that to me tho. It just plays out as usual without the new menu/ opening. Maybe I did something wrong. But I know my version is 1.0... I mean 1.1 doesn’t have Billie Jean right?

To install the game correctly just do the following (1) Install the base game of GTA Vice City (Without Mods of any kind) (2) Install SOV.exe where GTA Vice City was installed. Then everything will be replaced (3) Run gta -vc.exe (4) You can copy the Content from the Crack folder if it is not in the GTA Installation folder Vice City download on the internet GTA Vice City Crack.

1.0 has Billie Jean. 1.1 doesn't iirc.

 

I would try changing compatiblity modes. Maybe to Windows 7.

I’ll just delete it and restart the process. Take it step by step. I’m just off the edge to play it. Like this mod looks so dope and watching Willyz play it just wants me to play it more.

LOL If GTA-VC.exe does not have Billie Jean Surely it is because it has no Copyright 😉 XD

Is the EXE corrupt or sth?

 

It's odd too, it's only an EXE and it was never complied into a 7 Zip archive.

 

I would say don't use 7 Zip to extract and use your mouse to copy and paste the file.

Alright I’ll try it @El Penguin Bobo so I tried using winrar and it still won’t work. It’s starting to piss me off. I did everything right and it still doesn’t want to work.

The game still looks the same. I guess I need an actual retail copy of 1.0. I’m miffed but hey at least I can still see the updates on this dope mod on here

Well, you're gonna learn from the master. :) 

 

Go to GTA VC.EXE, right click, press properties, go to compatibility, and you'll see a menu saying "Run this program in compatiblity mode for". Click it, try changing it to Windows 7, and see if it works.

It's supposed to start with a static camera advertising the group who made the mod and then it's supposed to show a different Rockstar intro/logo and the menu will start off with "Grand Theft Auto: Shine O Vice: DEMO".

 

But, if you're talking about the compatibility thingy.

Yeah I got the windows 7 part. So here’s what happens

1. I downloaded Shine O’Vice

2. I dragged it into Vice Cities file folder

3. It didn’t work so I was getting pissed off by the second.

4. I deleted it then downloaded it for like the 4th time

5. Deleted 7 zip and used WinRar and tried to extract it.

6. Still nothing. I don’t know what I did wrong.

Huh, that's very strange. The only possible reason as to why it won't is because you didn't extract the mod contents to your actual game directory.

 

unknown.png

 

Once you install the mod, there should be a folder called, "GTA Vice City" and it should have those files. You have to select each file, and extract it to your GTA VC directory.

 

If it's not working then, it's probably because Steam version won't work with the mod as it's been reported that it won't work sometimes. You could try cracking the game online if you could.

I’ll try it again. But be more slow with it.

1. I’m downloading SOV.exe

2. I’m installing it.

3. It’s just not working. F***sake. I give up

What the hell are you guys doing to cause this many problems? You just extract the damn thing to an EMPTY FOLDER, then copy over the "audio" folder from an original Vice City, that's it. You DON'T install it to a Vice City install, you don't need to run Compatibility Mode, etc.

Pls cut me some slack I’m new to downloading mods and stuff. I don’t know why my things acting up but I can’t seem to get it working. I’ll give it ONE last go with what your saying.

But how do you play it? Don’t you need to start the original VC to play?
