Vice City crashing while playing!!! PC Version 1.0 retail

Recommended Posts

I do not know why this is happening and how and it has happened for a while now starting when I played juju scramble when usally sometime after getting the second case the game would crash. I was able to complete the mission but then I realized that the game would crash at random times after it crashed when I was driving to start the mission Death Row, I then decided to delete my same game and replace it with another from the internet that was around the missions I was doing on my old save game. On the new save, the game would not crash and everything was going fine until after killing Diaz and during the next mission, the game would start crash again during that shooting up the mall mission, I already realized that the same problem was happening again. I don't know what bug this crash thing or if it has to do with save files but please help!!!  If you are wondering how it crashes, it just crashes and freezes and then when I press any key, it will just get out of the game with it closing and I don't know why the hell this is happening!

If you didn't use any mods that replace files (could cause issues with game and could crash). Then that save file is not compatible with your version most likely from what I know.

Sorry that I haven't replied for so long but my save file is compatible but I tried to do this without mods but it still crashed. I still had to use ddraw when I play it without mods because when I played it without ddraw it just crashed, did not even launch, it got that one error, hopefully it has something to do with that.

Alright but I'm just gonna tell this this now, this happened with two save file and I got my current one off the web because my older one also won't stop crashing, must be something wrong with my game files.

Now do this without widescreen because even though this save file might still crash with widescreen, most if not all of the crashing happened without the widescreen fix.

At least we know that it's a game related issue so you are going to remove your mods (watch out for the leftover files) one by one and see if it solve your problem..

 

Well i'm asking you this question.. Do you have some specific mission to be completed? If yes please tell me so i can complete and send it back to you 😉

Well I tried this without mods my mods are stuff that fixes stuff like silentpatch, ddraw(need that otherwise the game won't start at all), cleo, modloader, asiloader, 60vcframelimiter, ect. I tried this without mods but it still crashed but I still needed ddraw because again then the game would not launch at all, I will just get an error.

I have a small suggestion.. Uninstall the game completely and make sure you don't have any leftover file.. after that install your game to "C://Games", do not install any mods and load one of my save file that i sent back to you..

 

Before uninstallation i'm gonna repeat my question.. Do you have some specific mission to be completed? 🙂

I am reinstalling Vice city and I am gonna say this now, I can download it but the past few times I downloaded the game, I got this error, CRC error, the file does not match the cab file, the medium from which you are running the setup may be corrupted. I don't know if this has anything to do with my problem but I'm just gonna note this down.

I'm also gonna note this but when I tried launching Vice city (I don't have ddraw nor do I have ANY MODS) I got "Unhandled Exception", again not sure if it has anything to do with the problem.

"Unhandled Exception" always comes with an error code.. google this error code and find a solution..

 

You should also make a control of your installation files and make sure you are selecting the "full installation".. Your CD maybe damaged if you are installing from it.. If i remember correctly the "audio files" are problematic for the full installation and you can download these files from the internet.. After installation make sure you are using the correct No-CD Crack.. Crack is also a problematic case when it comes to playing 🙂

Btw if you're wondering about my new post, basically I think the reason why the save file is crashing is because of the mods so I reinstalled the game without the mods, I thought you mean't mods as in, "cleo", "asiloader", "ddraw", ect.
