Well at first to be honost vice city was not running ok. The graphics were like flashing and stuff. So I downloaded a windows update and after that everything was running very smooth. I however have it to 640x480 resolution so its for medium graphics cards. I also set how much graphics it will load up at a time. I forgot what the setting was called, but I remember it was at the top of the graphics option screen and I set it all the way to 1. After I did that i t was going 60 frames per second. :)

This is my problem..
The intro kicks in...
Then the graphics and sound play ok for a few seconds...
Then they freeze up...
Sound keeps playing. :)
Windows up date? did you get the service pack?

What is your card GC?
I am reading a lot of things on this game...
It looks like i may have to wait for a patch or even

DUN DUN DAAAAAA!!!!!


An anser from customer support :cry: :lol: :D :cry: :cry:


Frame limiter on/off...
Its best to have it on unless your card is a speed of light beast thing...

I will try lowering my resoloutin as well, but i dont think it will help :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:

I have actually a preety cheap graphics card. Its a SIS 32MB graphics card. It kind of sucks since I can't play splinter cell with it, but otherwise its good. I'd recommend trying the patches and stuff. Look for windows updates for your graphics card drivers.. not the micrsoft service packs. :)

Ive never had a problem running any of the GTAs however the intro movies only ever play properly after ive upgraded my machine so I think they only really work on cutting edge jobs.

Im running 1700xp 256mb GeForce 3 Ti 200 128 mb

My problem even happens with people who have a radion 98000 cards!!!!!!!

But they got a patch for it.
I think mine will need a patch too.

My car should run it ffs :cry:

I would not have purchased the game if i thoght my card could not run it...
The problem is at there end.
i can run every game i have tried apart from splinter cell.
Oh and this... but technicaly it has run it...
When ya think about it.
Prais the day i get a new card :)

Ya man

If i whack it all the way up it runs great but cars will apear then when i turn and look again they will dissapear.

If its set to low [frame limiter] the cars dont dissapear...

I also have the dam "opticol mouse fault" were tommy move in circiles every now and then, thats a really bad bug...

The fix rockstar say to use is...

Use anornal mouse :)
