How to fix Vice City Android low textures


Equinoxe1

Recommended Posts

Is there anyone that knows how to properly fix the low textures in Vice City android? 

 

I managed to fix the same issue in San Andreas by the help of GTAForums. 

 

I tried to apply the same fix for Vice City but it won't work for me, i'm just messing up the textures of the whole game. 

 

I found another fix https://gamebanana.com/gamefiles/5636 But the instructions with the APK editor are giving me a hard time. 

 

I'm using a Note 9 (mali)

The mod that you have linked is still working but you need to "change" it a bit. Its easy. So:

1) Install the mod from https://gamebanana.com/gamefiles/5636

2) extract the "files" folder into Android/data/com.rockstargames.gtavc 

3) go into the following folder (Android/data/com.rockstargames.gtavc/files/textdb) and delete the following files: gta3img.etc.dat, gta3img.etc.tmb and gta3img.etc.toc

4) ATTENTION: DO NOT DELETE gta3img.txt

 

The files you have deleted were the files that made the game looking very weird, now the game looks fine and it's fixed. You are welcome.

Hey buddy I use this patch also, everything is fine if you strictly follow the steps showed in the video below. Now my mali GPU cellphone can correctly display high quality textures as Areno GPU does. However, I found the patch has a small bug which the author may not notice during the development: In North Point Mall there are several stores with transparent glass walls, which can be broken by bullets, and players can look through the glass texture from the outside of the stores. But when I apply this texture patch, these glass walls in NPM are seemingly not transparent anymore. I guess the patch developer may mistakenly code the type of glass wall texture, and I have comment this bug at the author's site. Is the glass texture fine in your device after using the patch?
