Vice City Crashes When I load a save that is 18:00

Question

Thugsworth

I have a problem trying to play Vice City. It crashes whenever I load a save game that is around after 18:00! This is a fresh install from Steam, not even modded. Now here's the stuff that I had tried.

 

1. Deleting the .set file.

 

2. Reinstalling the game.

 

3. added an exception to the DEP.

 

4. installed ddraw.dll

 

5. Turned Compatibility mode on to Windows XP service pack 3.

 

None of these worked. I'm also using Windows 10. Please help.

I've reinstalled the game and deleted all my saves to see if that's somehow the reason why.

It's fixed. I saved at around 15:30 and ended up at 23:33 without a crash. I've even restarted the game and it still worked.

Can you upload the save game on http://gtasnp.com so I can check on my game/comp if it works ? I have steam and retail.

Uploaded. Look for the save "Jury Fury" with 2.6% progress.

The time on the save is 22:42 and it also crashes on my Steam VC. I lowered the clock to 11:00. It crashes at 19:59 precisely. I guess the timers inside the save are screwed up, weird since you only have 32 minutes played. In order to fix the save, I guess resetting the timers could do the trick but I assume it would be longer that just restarting the game. Be sure to reinstall properly the game via Steam just in case that save corruption happened because of some weird crap in the game files.

Does this bug happen to other save games too ?

I had an older save that had succumbed to this time bug. I started a new game to see if the bug only affected that save. But I accidentally replaced that with another save. The one you got was saved on slot 2 from the newer save.

The address where it crashed is related to a parked car generator. Parked cars are part of your save file so trying anything that doesn't involve starting a new game or editing your save file would not solve the issue.
