How can they fix the game? Most people own a disc which can't be updated and the Mobile version isn't made by Rockstar.

 

It is unneeded, but they added rewards after 100% for all future games.

I would love for the developers to fix a few bugs with the mobile versions. But they stopped updating III,VC,and SA long ago :/ As for this disc versions obviously there isn't going to be any patches or fixes. Edited by GTA_The_Series

Your right about that. SA is the most with crappy bugs. Till this day it annoys me when the game randomly closes along with sh*ty textures with galaxy users. They should've fixed these bugs long ago but meh not much of an issue. Edited by GTA_The_Series

The sh*tty textures aren't a bug, depending on your GPU you will habe sh*tty or good textures. You propably have a Mali GPU.

 

If you have rooted your phone you can use GLTools to force the game into thinking you have a different GPU, meaning you get better textures.

I have Mali T720 MP2 ... does it mean that I should have sh*tty textures? I thought that the game chooses the textures according to the settings (low, medium, high, max).

why they still haven't fixed it for the mobile port that been release in 2011?

War Drum most likely wasn't aware.

Yes. Believe me, when you would use Adreno or even Tegra graphics you would get 10 FPS.

i dont see why tommy vercetti needs 200% of health and armor when vice city isn't dangerous place then liberty city.

I will have to agree that purple nines glitch should have been fixed at least on mobile and the fact that it is very difficult to survive in GTA 3 compared to GTA Vice City. Here are some comparisons between GTA 3 and GTA VC:

 

Maximum Health and Armor (without having sex with a hooker)

GTA 3: 100 Health and 100 Armor

GTA VC: 200 Health and 200 Armor

 

Damage dealt by punches

GTA 3: A lot and in quick succession. Peds are extremely aggressive.

GTA VC: Not much. Peds aren't too aggressive.

 

Weapons carried by peds after using a cheat

GTA 3: All weapons

GTA VC: Golf Club, Nightstick, Pistol, Tec-9

 

Weapons carried by army at 6 stars

GTA 3: M16

GTA VC: MP5 (the army at the military base carries M4, which deals a high amount of damage but nothing compared to instant death of M16)

 

Weapons carried by gangs

GTA 3: Fists, Bats, Pistols, Uzis, Shotguns, AK-47.

GTA VC: Fists, Pistols, Uzis (only carried by Vercetti Gang after Keep Your Friends Close).

 

I don't think I need to explain anything more than that.

I thought that maximum health in vice city is 150, not 200. When you complete the pizza delivery missions you health becomes 150.

Lol...And when you reach 100%, you get 200 Health and 200 Armor...Infinite Ammo, DD for all Vehicles Tommy drives, and available Body Guards from Vercetti Estate.

 

Does anybody go for 100%? Does anybody know the GTA Series inside and out? Everyone should know this stuff by now...

Yeah, and said people call themselves Fans of the Series...

 

Ones that never even played or finished half the GTA's in the Series...

 

These are basic facts. Even without playing, it's easy to know about the games just by researching...

 

Plus, I think that guy participates in the Vice City Chain Game Rounds...If so, not sure why he wouldn't know about VC and the facts of 200 Health/Armor upon 100%...

There are 15 GTA Titles, i doubt anyone here finished them all. Especially since 1 of those is a **** Sony exclusive.

Nobody said about all 15, we are talking VC, one of the most known GTA's in the Series. You can make excuses for anyone you want, but at the end of the day, it still doesn't make sense how someone wouldn't know this stuff.

 

Just like the OP and about GTA III. His logic is flawed and nothing he says makes sense in the slightest besides the Purple Nines Glitch, which we already know is easily avoidable. Not my fault people are stubborn to the FACTS and don't understand basic logic of:

 

If you do this Mission first, you lock said next Mission off. Humans have brains...Use it. If it blocks a Mission, then don't do the Mission in which blocks another Mission off. Logic, Brains, use it...

I have gta 3 and VC at 100% For SA i'm currently at 85% :whuh: Tbh i'm to lazy to do the other things in SA. It's a quite a huge map. Just missing a couple of horse shoes and oysters and some other things. Don't get me started about IV...stupid pigeons are a pain. Edited by GTA_The_Series

MrAlexVercetti

i cant say its a bad game but yes, its outdated. u cant fly the dodo which is the only air vehicle lol. u cant have a normal safehouse. 3 safehouses which r lame. no water vehicles such as at least predator if there is tell me where. i started to play this again recently to know what is where. regarding hateful gangs i have my method. i want to get to that lighthouse but how..NO MAP? wtf? unless my gta is not the real one. i have to use my ipad to look into the map to see where i am.. wtf..thats really annoying..the map itself is big. i can barely find myself there after vc lol. my beautiful VC!! anyways. im going to continue to roam around to explore the cities more..its not worse its just not well maintained..tho if they could make 3 cities that have 2 big bridges, tunnels and whats there else..oh well..

I finished III, VC, SA, LCS, VCS, IV, TLaD, TBoGT, CW, and V all to 100%, Minimum Stats, and all Special Vehicles a number of times. It's actually not a "task" anymore. 100% is just "what I do," but it's not a huge achievement to me as it was when I was like 13 years old. Back then, GTA felt a lot harder and a lot longer. Now it's so easy, hence why not only do I go for 100% these days, but also the Minimum Stats and Special Vehicle Playthroughs. Basic 100% is boring to me these days as I don't find it a challenge anymore like I did in my early teen years.

 

I have FULL Starter Saves for III, VC, SA, LCS, and VCS, so all those Collectibles like the 100 Hidden Packages in III, 100 Hidden Packages in VC, 250 Collectibles in SA, 100 Hidden Packages in LCS (actually, 97/100), and 99 Red Balloons in VCS are already done. Every time I want to do a Save for III, I start at 53% and right after Luigi's Girls without any other Story Missions complete. For VC, I start at 44% before the first Story Mission in the game, An Old Friend. For SA, I start at 13.90% and right after Big Smoke without any other Story Missions complete. For LCS, I start at 48% right after Home Sweet Home before any other Story Missions and for VCS, I start at 49.20% right after Soldier before any other Story Missions.

 

All the tedious, boring, mundane, run-of-the-mill bullsh*t tasks are already completed anytime I want to do a Playthrough. I never start at 0% anymore and have to do Collectibles, Rampages, Stunt Jumps, Side Missions, R3 Missions, etc, etc, etc, as all of that is done in the beginning of the game...

I believe OP started playing III way after VC, SA, IV or even worse, V.

 

The games have been evolving during the years. It's quite logic that the first attempts of anything aren't going to be perfect. That's how developers get experience. However, that doesn't take away the game's merit of being revolutionary for its time. I still play it from time to time and still find it fun. Harder than newer titles at certain parts, but still fun.

And no one sings me lullabies, and no one makes me close my eyes.

Damn lol isn't that amazing? I can even bother with IV just because those birds (including in the episodes) I lost track where was my last bird lmao. But really how do you have time for this? Or is it years if playing on the same save or something? Idk :/ I mean the only gta's i have on 100% is III,VC, and LCS. I'm so close to getting 100% on SA but lost track on what the f*ck i was doing on my last save lol. Edited by GTA_The_Series

I've started doing all this stuff in 2014. It's been a couple years since I started, but since 2014, I did many Saves for each GTA. Each GTA other than SA and VCS in the 3D Era takes less than a week to finish. SA and VCS take about 2 (VCS) to 3 (SA) weeks to finish. IV takes about 3-4 weeks for me, TLaD takes about 3-4 days, TBoGT takes about 4-5 days, CW takes about 2 weeks, and V takes about 3 weeks. So as you can see, they range from 3 days to 3-4 weeks to complete. In the 2+ years I've been playing and doing this stuff, I've gotten a lot better and perfected my Saves and been re-doing them ever since to have the best around, which I pretty much have succeeded at this point. I can't do much better than what I have currently...

Here we go again, you can fly the Dodo, there are 3 different boats, the safehouses in GTA3 are more detailed than most Vice City ones so that makes up for the fact that there are only three.

The menu map is valid criticism, I'll give you that. The lack of a menu map is a sign of age.

Not having a Map makes III that much better. Why? Cuz you once again need to actually use your brain, more so, memory, and learn the map that way.........................Or play LCS and LCS has a Map and LCS is practically identical to III....

 

Starting with III in 2001 and doing Taxi Fares and sh*t like that, how can you NOT learn the Map? Fast forward 15 years and I provably did 1,000 Taxi Fares in the same damn City. How can I NOT know it by now?

 

The people complaining just haven't given it time. They can't fathom something 15 years old and then playing it. These people will continue to say the game sucks, etc...

Just by playing the game a couple of days or so you can master the map. I mean III's map is a little small compared to VC's. Even so III's map always feels bigger to me than VC's. I don't get why OP ever needed a map just to get around in LC. Back in the day i always used my memorie like you mentioned. No map no help nothing. Just an easy map to memorize.

Short answer to your question: no.

 

Send me your save and I'll fix the Purple Nines glitch for you if it's that big of an issue.

Hmm. I knew it did. Never got why R* said the map was a little bigger compared to III way back when it first released.
