GTA2 Windows 10 "Fix"

Recommended Posts

Molotok

What I found is the best gaming experience on Win10 is just using the regular version with nGlide. Note the game in general always crashes after too many restarts (on any version), but else it should run stable with the intended 30fps when you are in the level. What you have to do:

  • download nGlide and gfxswitch (tool to make the game work with nGlide, so that it runs with 32bit colors which fixes some of the graphical bugs and texts), you can get it here
  • assuming you have the game, start gfxswitch and set it to "3DFX Glide thru OpeGL emulator" and press "Apply"
  • in nGlide it is highly recommended to set screen resolution by app and aspect correction probably too, unless you like stretched and pixelated graphics
  • in GTA2 Manager set "Frame Rate Limiter" to ON and start the game (you might close the manager and start with normal gta2.exe if it doesn't with the GTA2Manager

Small tip: You can switch between day/night with "Noon" or "Dusk" options in the GTA2 Manager (Residential in dusk looks pretty nice).

When you say the regular version, do you mean the original CD release or the freeware release? Good guide btw, I'd def add it to the opening post if I still could (I'm the OP).

After reading a comment from the site that he linked, it seems like it requires the original one, not the one from Rockstar Classics. Anybody have an idea where to find it?

It works with the retail or the Rockstar free version, doesn't matter. The 11.44 version didn't work with gfxswitch for me.

How would you know that it is working? Will you be able to set nglide in gta manager? Because it does not appear. and I can only select direct3d.

It doesn't appear there, but here are some differences. You can see font is clearer and those transparency bugs are not present (only the upper right corner hud looks better in non-glide mode imo). Also I don't have any lag during the game.
