Awesome patch, I'm going to try it out as soon as I can. And by the way, glows under pickups were featured in Xbox mod since update 2 which was released more than a year ago ;)

Came here to say this. :santa:

Is it possible that the shadows are affected by a high aspect ratio like 16:9?

Oh, I didn't know that.

Actually I have made sure my mod DOES work with widescreen fix provided the fix affects some text draws. Therefore I can blame widescreen fix for not fixing enough stuff :p

Nope. For now not enough stuff I could fix.

You could look into what was in the PS2 version that didn't make it to PC, like the color correction, sun rays, ps2 car reflections, missing lamps in LV, ps2 helicopter rotors, There's enough. :)

I'm pretty sure all of that was cut from the PC version. It's not like those things can be restored just through a plugin altering some flags.

About SA color correction - On the mobile versions there is a file called colorcycle.dat. I believe that this file is responsible for cc. What had to be done: Understand how the colorcycle.dat file are read by the game engine on mobile, and if possible bring this mechanism to PC. Once on PC, we can edit colorcycle.dat to match the PS2 originals.

 

Easy to be done? Probably not.

It's possible at all? Probably yes.

It would be nice if you could fix stuff referred in this wiki article

RenderWare in SA has a weird bug that causes PS2-style rotors not to render properly, so R* disabled them.

Would it be possible to toggle this back?

Or it is hardcoded and/or requires reverse engineering?

It clearly 'requires reverse engineering'; and would require some deep excursion of the RenderWare code comparing with PIX (a Direct3D 'debugger', pretty much, with a number of glitches and oddities making its use terrible for most purposes).

i love this mod to bits, but it doesn't seem to play nice with mvl :(

 

would you be able to make use of the errorlog or would it fit better in the mvl thread? also separate question, any chance of compatibility fixes with newer versions of windows being worked on?

What sort of issues are they?

 

Also, no clue what I'd have to fix. Playing on Vista myself and I never face any issues.

yep, it's pretty strange. removing the asi stops the crashes completely, so i'd have to say that's what's doing it.

Great work, but can you do this digits smaller?

(maybe it's because I use widescreen fix remake in 1920*1200)

Again, I FIXED them, scaling is the same R* intended it to be. Widescreen fix didn't take it into consideration and that's why it looks that way. So the fix is up to widescreen fix.

I think SA needs such a fix for fade out freezing as well since I get it there too (could be a side effect of setting frame delay to 0, I dunno).

 

That would be one thing to do if you ever decide to make a SA version.

I think you and ThirteenAG should update widescreen fix (stretched radar icons, wrong texts sizes) and merge them into one awesome must-freaking-have patch.

I have some ideas regarding widescreen fixes update, but i'll start to do that a bit later.

Silent,

 

If you were able to fix the shadows,then why not move the shadows a little bit up,to create a effect of SA/IV/V like font borders!

Don't know why I didn't recognize it earlier.

I wanted to play some Vice City today, pressed accidentally "start a new game" and after I entered the car "Laura Branigan - Self Control" started to play.

For me that was a little bit strange because I expected "Michael Jackson - Billie Jean". So i removed the SilentPatch and started again a new game.

This time Billy Jean was the first song. So, is this supposed to be like this or is this a bug?

Weirdly starts in the same area as VC 10th Anniversary to, that's like an accident fix to fall in line. :p

Would it be possible to add a fix for the Havana outfit glitch in VC in a future update?

That's fixed by editing the main.scm. The pickup gets relocated to wrong coordinates after finishing certain missions, all you have to do is replace those coordinates for the correct ones.

 

Or you can download someone else's fix, an edited colision file that allows you to access it in the relocated position.

You should add your trails addon to the VC version of SilentPatch, because it's pretty much fix. There was no reason to remove it when III has it.

Using this patch for GTA III Steam version 1.1 here and its great love it thank-you.

 

Having a problem though, whenever I die the game freezes. Car explosion, drowning, beating, and gunshot all cause game to freeze at moment of death.

 

Running Ginput and some textures, but even with them disabled I still can't die with SilentPatchIII.asi or it freezes. Music keeps playing, no steam overlay or buton inputs work except esc key. Hitting ESC closes game and states "A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Please close the program" no real error code.

 

Other than that it seems to work great as long as I'm alive :) Any ideas what could be wrong here?

 

Edit: As a test deleted whole GTA 3 folder reinstalled off steam. Deleted settings and save files. Installed only SilentPatchIII. Started a new game and crashed car till on fire, explosion = lockup

win 7 64

Steam 1.1 version

no other mods or textures
