Windowed Mode plugin (for GTA3, VC, SA)
Originally created by maxorator as part of Maxo's Vehicle Loader for Vice City, this plugin starts the game in windowed mode.

Download

Installation
1. ASI Loader is required. If you don't have it, just install Widescreen Fix, ASI Loader comes with it.
2. Unpack III.VC.SA.WindowedMode.asi and (optionally) III.VC.SA.CoordsManager.exe to scripts folder, or modloader folder.
3. Start the game.


Supported executables
gta3.exe v1.0, gta-vc.exe v1.0, gta-sa.exe v1.0


Hotkeys
* Alt-Enter: Toggle between borderless-fullscreen and windowed mode
* Ctrl-Enter/Shift-Enter: Toggle border/menu
* Ctrl-Alt: Toggle mouse cursor
* If border is activated, you can resize the window with the mouse


Known issues
* If SilentPatch is installed, you won't be able to move mouse cursor while in-game. Enter main menu before activating mouse cursor.

* In San Andreas, mouse cursor is not visible.


Credits
* maxorator

This is best windowed mod ever. It just works™ and even has teleporter! How can you say no to this?

Oh wow! I cant check it out now, but I wonder if SA intros work in borderless fullscreen with in-game AA on.

They do, you could have SA windowed borderless for quite long time with universal asi loader.

I don't know if is so much if you can do a version without the coords manager since I didn't install it and it's annoying toggle the menu to off everytime I start the game, I hope this doesn't bother you.

Actually these settings are stored in the ini, so once you pressed Shift-Enter and hid the menu, it shouldn't appear at startup next time.

Ini? It seems I don't have any ini related to this mod on my game folder (In this case GTA III), how is supposed to be the name of the ini file?

It will be created as soon as you press Shift-Enter or Ctrl-Enter. Should be created at the same folder where you placed the plugin.

Looks like noone else has problems with it.

 

Please, I still want to know your thoughts about it. If this error tells you something, can you at least point me where to look for a possible cause?

 

But... I'm getting a crash as soon as gameplay loads if skygfx is used :(

[MAIN]ShowMenu = 0

I tested it with skygfx, worked fine for me. Maybe it's a specific setting in skygfx that causes the crash? Try to figure out what it is. Edited by ThirteenAG

Found! These settings are guilty

 

colorFilter=0

doRadiosity=1

 

Should I contact The Hero?

 

Also. I forced V-sync everywhere but in borderless fullscreen I'm getting very strong tearing :( Can something be done with it?

I can confirm that changing colorFilter to either 1 or 3 works around the crash. Options 0 (PS2 colorfilter) and 2 (Mobile-attempt colorfilter) crash the game in combination with this windowed mode mod. Great mod anyways. :)

It's quite possible skygfx is making some invalid assumptions too, might not be a bug of this mod.

Vice City throws unhandled exceptions seemingly at random with this mod as demonstrated in this video (I also show the other scripts that I have installed).

 

Edit: Never mind. The wndmode.ini method works perfectly.

That plugin is incompatible with trainers: GTASA control center, GTA3 console, GTAVC console, although to use them would be more convenient it is in window mode.

Probably trainers incorrectly made :sly:
