GTAIII set file issue

Question

rjnagy

I had the opposite issue with Vice City then most. I had to set compatibility mode, proc affinity and use spud's vice city set file as with the steam version it was not creating one. I believe it is the same issue with GTA III. I was hoping someone here knew if there was a gta3.set file link on here like there is under the Vice City forums.

Thanks...the first link I think isn't the issue...I think the issue is that the gta3.set file is not being created for some reason. Not sure if it's windows 7, steam, etc. The second link that the link to the gta3 zip file....the zip isn't at the link anymore so I will keep searching but I do appreciate the effort. I've actually seen this issue with other games where it's like windows does not know how to create a settings file or a ini for some games.

I was just asked if posting a .set was ok (or considered warez)... This is perfectly fine...

 

Just realize that someone elses settings file may or may not allow the game to work on your machine depending on the person providing it's hardware configuration... The simpler the configuration and in most cases the lower visual and sound settings (draw distance, resolution, etc) the better.

You need to use an Administrator account and run GTA III inorder to have the save file automatically created.

 

If you're already on an Administrator account:

 

1. Right click on gta3.exe and run as an Administrator.

2. Set compatibility mode to Windows XP Service Pack 2 or 3.

 

That should work.
