III & VC Save File Glitch Detection and Repair

Recommended Posts


Hello again, people! After trying to use timer fixer on my GTA 3 save (just for some testing) i've discovered that crusher in the Harwood Junkyard won't pickup any car. I've used my save before applying the fix and everything is working just fine. Does anyone know why this glitch is appearing after fix?

III saves aren't my forte, but I used the available documentation to track down a timer associated with the crusher crane and reset it to 0 - my best guess.

0x74 dword current game time + 10000 (only updates when crane has finished lifting car)

Please provide feedback on this attempted repair and SnPs timer fix in general. This is an extremely complex fix with hidden timers in odd places. The VC tool was recently upgraded to account for shop keepers and... something with the busing mini-game. Keep an eye out for anything weird. (It might take about 6 minutes for used/dropped cargens and pickups to catch up with their respawn/unspawn timers.)

In GTA 3 after a certain playing time my game animations progressively freeze with the screen keeping shaking during minutes after an explosion or the vehicles' whells rolling while they don't move and stuff.


Does anyone have a solution?

I can't tell for sure from your description but it sounds like you might have an issue with too much game time - a common issue with all GTA III era games. Try uploading your save to GTASnP.com and apply the Reset Timers fix of the Modification tools. Download the modified save, probably to a free slot since we aren't sure of the problem, and see if the game plays better for you.

That issue with clock stopping happened to me already many times..I just hate when it happens..I basically stopped doing any long distance jumps..but even w/o it that issue still happens on daily basis..Ive lost several save games due to this error..look here..It just stops for no reason..like WTH..i lost this save almost recently..I saved after collecting my daily revenue and when reloaded it happened..Can it the reason of long time playing?

I could be a problem with too much time. Do VC stats indicate the total time played?


Try the fix available under the modifications tools of GTASnP.com. See if the problem goes away.

@OrionSR yes it does but ive already deleted that save game..But 1 happened to me last nite again..I tried to reload after a save and it stopped again at the particular hour lol. it was 03:07am in game and it stopped at that minute again after reloading..ive tried to do that trick with replay but it didnt fix. it just added some secs..and when i throw granades or shoot with any weapon the bullet way is stuck, and the granades dont explode..or worse, the rocket launcher caused an earthquake lol..and it wouldnt go away..Could u link it?
