ReDragon28

GTA Vice City won't start... Help, please

Recommended Posts

ReDragon28

My Gta Vice city runs only when Im connected to the internet. Whenever I try to run Vice City on my laptop when Im disconnected from the internet - the game is present in task manager, but it does not run. But then if I connect my internet - it starts the MOMENT it connects... The only fix I can do is change compatibility to Win 98, but it has problems with audio and stuff... When the internet is on there are no problems and I dont need to do anything in compatibility.. Weird.. Any help? P.S. - this also happens with San Andreas and GTA III.

It's not my pc specs problem, cuz I can run all three games fine. And yeah, it's not multiplayer. Like, if I'm offline - I need to change compatibility to Win 98 (which causes problems in gameplay but at least runs) or win 2000 (which makes them run fine). So I changed it to all 3 to windows 2000 and they run online and offline. But I still don't get why I need to do this..

I suppose you don't have a multicore optimizer.

No. What is that?

A tool to avoid having some games work too fast because of a multicore CPU.

That sounds similar to the problem I was having a long time ago. Windows Games Explorer feature is trying to retrieve information about the games online. Without an Internet connection, it prevents the games from launching properly. The solution for me was here.
