Grand Theft Auto III
(hx) 02:33 PM CEST - Jun,11 2002

I doubt there are many gamers out there that have not heard about Grand Theft Auto III (GTA3), the Game of the Year for 2001 for Playstation 2, released last October. Now, publisher Rockstar Games has finally released a version for the PC. Although the PC version doesn't offer any significant new content, GTA III PC still remains a great game even six months after its initial PS2 debut. I still remember the original Grand Theft Auto (1997), with simple graphic, a few weapons and top-down view only, but the game was fun! The sequel, Grand Theft Auto 2 (1999) looked like a clone of the original GTA with tons of new weapons, updated engine a few added features. So what you can expect from GTA3? The concept in GTA3 is pretty much the same, but the game sports a fully 3D engine, new 3rd person mode. Once again you must make money on the streets of Liberty City (based on New York City) in any way possible. If you never played any GTA game, It's not easy to exactly describe the gameplay. Basically, you make contacts with gang wars and corrupt police in the criminal underworld of Liberty City and these bad guys giving you various jobs such as stealing cars to order, planting car bombs, etc...The story line develops through these "crime" missions and take place both in vehicle and on foot, the missions themselves being well varied and quite a lot of fun. Well, most tasks are essentially the same, but if don't feel like playing missions at all, you can just drive around the city or just go insane and start massacre people until the cops will kill you :P   Also the story line is pretty basic, but it fits pretty well into the game. GTA3 features 73 non-linear missions (over 40 hours of game play), various weapons at your disposal (including baseball bats, M16, AK47, Uzi, flame-thrower), 20 mass-destruction challenges, 100 hidden secret packages to find, approximately 50 different vehicles from sports cars to ice cream trucks,  20 cinematic superjumps hidden throughout the city, sub-missions for "special vehicles" (for ambulance, fire truck, police car and tax), import/export garage (find 16 models of cars and get free cars for the rest of the game). The game also includes over 10 different stations to listen (3 hours of music) and ability to listen to your mp3's while you drive.

What is different between PS2 and PC version of GTA3?  Well, the PC version has absolutely nothing new in terms of gameplay. Also the graphic aren't much different from the PS2 except for the higher resolution, but the graphics are still pretty good. The PC version allows you to play the game in resolutions as high as 1600x1200, also textures have been reworked and are now much sharper. The PC version also adds ability to play your mp3's while you drive, mouse/keyboard controls (improved aiming system), and new replay option.  Sadly one of the biggest negatives is the steep system requirements. With recommended minimum - 700Mhz CPU with 128MB of RAM and a 32MB graphics card is game very hardly playable - requires to turn every detail to its lowest setting.  I played the game on my highly tweaked Athlon 900Mhz/512MB, GeForce 2 MX/32MB at 800x600 with most of the options turned down to keep things running smooth.

Is GTA3 worth your hard earned money? The answer is surprisingly simple, if you have never played the PS2 version, definitely yes, because gameplay is superb and the game has really incredible replay value  If you like games of this type and you don't have PS2, then you should get this game. I gave the game 91% - it loses a few points for high system requirements, a few texturing issues, and also because there's no multiplayer. if you want more information (especially about game tweaking), don't forget to visit GTA3 forums. You can also try semi-nude prostitutes nudepatch (I tested it - see shots) and mp3 randomizer for your mp3 files. Playable demo is not available yet.


snd: 5/5 - stunning, superb voice acting (professional actors), three non-stop hours of radio stations (Hip-Hop, Techno, Talk Show...), nice effects (people screaming at you in traffic, police sirens, choppers...), you can listen to your mp3's while you drive, the weapons are a bit weak
gfx: 5/5 - incredible, cars are very well modeled, amazing damage models on each vehicle, well done weather effects, well done textures (especially gore textures), resolution up to 1600x1200/32bit, three camera modes - distant, top-down look(classic), over-the-shoulder view, replay system, steep system requirements
playability: 5/5 - excellent, great atmosphere, 73 non-linear missions (over 40 hours of fun),   incredible replay value,  mouse/keyboard controls (better aiming system), very stable, no multiplayer, carbon copy of the PS2 version in terms of gameplay, minor AI glitches
genre: action/criminal simulation
platform: PC, PS2
release: May 2002
developer: Rockstar Games
publisher: Take 2
Excellent
Overall: 91%

The publisher of the pics has the nude-hookers patch applied. Hehe :) See Pic #33 Damn straight you need a hi spec to play the game at a decent resolution. Plus I find that it slows down after playing for a short time. Shame :(

This would be fantastic on the Xbox and in 5.1 Dolby Digital Could also carry over your own mp3 music feature Lets just hope it comes eventually.

This game is the best i've ever played. It rocks. But the german verson is really bad, the cut everything what had made fun. But the blood patch is avaible on www.megagames.com Now you can cut off legs, arms and heads and you can also hurt sb. who is lying on the ground. i hope, that i could help you The Peacemaker

Marcoposted - Jun, 11 2002 - 19:22
Had the same problem with the menu text, read the help me file, and now its probebly the least buggy game on the pc there is. with this game coming on the PS2 first the designers couldn't use patches and so they had to actually finnsih the game befroe they sold it, on the PC however games designers can just use the excuess of patches to bring games out early and with loads of bugs.

Erkatenaposted - Jun, 11 2002 - 21:00

I have to agree this game is bugged up...Its ok although AI for the people is not that good, bring on Republic..and honestly Morrowind is a better long term game... Patch for Myth Rip and Deviance ISO are at gamecopyworld.com for the person who asked for saved game fix.

Peteposted - Jun, 12 2002 - 02:56
yep i had problems with the text. my p is a 500mhz, 256 ram, geforce 2 32 meg. I play the game at 800*600 resolution at 16 bit, any higher than this i encountered problems with the text. for those with the same problem try knocking down the resolution and set it to 16 bit quality to find out a reasonable setting.

Agustinusposted - Jun, 12 2002 - 06:05
this game is awesome! but previously i've a lot of problem but since that i used patch from cheffz and winxp patch, never show up anymore. great game never dies!

Ghetto Starposted - Jun, 12 2002 - 15:51
This game is GREAT but at the same time is FUKKING SHIT.. so much bugs.. so much freezing.. even on low setting, there is so much freezing.. Game has been rushed by R*, hope they get some patching done soon.. loosing patience in playing.. got a P3 900Mhz 512Mb Mem and a Voodoo 5 5500 64Mb. Not a bad system but a badly programmed game.

Brenposted - Jun, 12 2002 - 15:52
That crack ahs now been fixed. Check out Gamecopyworld and it's there. btw, good game......worth the money if u buy it :)

Nunya D. Bidnissposted - Jun, 12 2002 - 16:46
I have not seen one issue that made this game bad in any way. Granted, I just got a new high end system with a GForce 4 Ti4600 card with the Detonator Drivers, I run everything cranked up at a 1600x1200 res and it rocks. I have not had any problems loading saved games either. This game ROCKS. Get it if do not have it.

KvLposted - Jun, 12 2002 - 17:37
It has too many probs, but it's 2k2 TOP GAME... It supports other languages (like italian, the one I use) but I have a VERY BIG problem with my mouse... IT KEEPS TURNING AROUND ON THE RIGHT!!!! HEEEEEELP!!!! Any Ideas?

bugs ? what bugs game froze one or 2 times max ! on my comp at least !

Jayposted - Jun, 12 2002 - 22:51
I didn't see any bugs.. Seems to be a direct port of the PS2 title with the exceptions of updated textures and the way you shoot your gun. I rate this game a A+. Just have one complaint. Why did it take so long to release this fine title? Game was used on a AMD XP 1600 (1.4GHz),Geforce4, 512MB ran smooth if not faster than the ps2 version.

DeAdEyEposted - Jun, 13 2002 - 05:38
yes there are bug .. like a cop car half way through the wall everthing else is good i wish it had Mp then it would be better GTA 4 LIFE

*drool* this game is so awesome. I've been playing way too much but who cares? I don't see any bugs but I get some slowdown after I play for a while or after I shut the program down and start it up later without restarting. But yeah, this game is great, definatly one of my favorites. Not for the kiddys though...

mbricoutposted - Jun, 13 2002 - 12:55
Excellent concept, great gameplay, but completely bugged (replay feature, crashes, major slowdowns). Game barely playable on the RECOMMENDED configuration, let alone the MINIMUM... I am waiting for a fix.

Lard Assposted - Jun, 13 2002 - 13:44
ROCK STAR we're waiting for a PATCH ! release the BEAST !!

Altecmakposted - Jun, 13 2002 - 16:18
why cant i change my resolution to a higher setting. everytime i try to it automatically changes it back to the original settings. whats wrong?!?!?!

Ghetto Star*posted - Jun, 13 2002 - 17:28
Regarding Atecmak, when you launch the game at first, that's the only time you can change the Res.. but once you start to play the game and try to change the Res.. it doesn't work... so you have to shut the game down but that means that you have to re-boot the PC, because if you relaunch the game it's X-tra FCUKING slow... BITCH KUNT R* prouction... I want a patch too....

Rodolpho Baggioposted - Jun, 13 2002 - 18:32
I've got a problem here man! My PC requirements arent so good as they ask but the first week i installed the game i played it normal(slow). After 1 week the game asked 12Mb more video memory.

Lard Ass, I don't see a point in purchasing a PS2, my mate has got it and also the GTA3 and I have a PC and the GTA3.. but I personally love the PC version better. I played on the PS2, and the optomisation is still bad... R* has done a real shitty job with this great game.. I hope R* doesn't produce any of the future GTA games... I would much rather pay my money and get an X-Box than a PS2

I run WinXP, Asus A7V, AMD T-Bird 750, 256MB PC133 SDRAM and a GeForce 4 Ti 4400. Thats not much above the recommended requirements - and this game runs flawlessly. No freezes, no slowdown, no clipping - nothing. This game is my best purchase since Half-Life, back in '98. This game belongs in your library. True, it could be a LOT better with some AI adjustments etc, but this is still a damn fun game.

People with weak computers STOP COMPLAINING. If you are too cheap to buy a console then at least invest the money u dont use for the console and put more in your computer if you want to play games. Otherwise stick to DOOM95 or wordprocessing and stop the bitchin! AthlonXP1500, FIC AD-11 mainboard, WinXP, 512MB DDR, GF2 32MB (plannin to upgrade). $160 for the proc and m/b. GF2s are cheap now. $100 for 512MB DDR! all @ tigerdirect.com. You paid more for the PS2 when it first came out! Upgrade your hardware and STOP BITCHIN! No tweaking of anything as yet; game runs SMOOTH on highest settings.

Dude...listen to me. DON'T GET THIS GAME!!! It sucks big freaking time. You need a f*cking nasa computer to run it with decent graphics and at a nice resolution. It's got bugs and the physics model is mediocre. A few words: STAY AWAY FROM THIS RIDICULOUS GAME!!!!!

GhettoSoupa*posted - Jun, 26 2002 - 16:21
I have just got rid of my old Base System and splashed out on a new system.. with... Athlon 1600 256 Mb DDRAM and a 64Mb graphics card Make? Model? But this purchase better be worth it.. I am gonna get it next week and I will tell you all if there is no improvements in the game.. Also I had a Voodoo card before, I hear that no one in the gaming industry in supporting voodoo cards.. But anyway, I reply you all soon...

This is a F*cking great game, but if you want to have it, don't buy it before you have tested that it works on your computer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

GhettoSoupa*posted - Jun, 28 2002 - 15:37
And I suppose you Mr Dre would have known a way to test it before purchasing it.. would you like to enlighten us?

For those of you that thinks the game has ridiculous requirements and runs too slow etc, I have an Intel 400mhz CPU, less than 1/3 what most of you have from AMD speedwise, and it runs great. I recently tried with AMD 800mhz, same RAM, same video card (Creative 3D Blaster) and it's so slow it's unplayable entirely.

try setting your game resolution to its lowest 800x600x16 i think.... not sure. and turn off the trails and all that and set the rendiong distance to its lowest. if that doesnt help...then well..... you got bad luck or get a video card. honestly that is my professional opion im not trying to sound like some of the dudes that have posted before me though.

Quazar™posted - Aug, 10 2002 - 02:38
nope 640x480x16 set it to that and hardware does always help :)

If you get that stupid message"(You need 12mb of video memory)"when you start the game. Well then you need to upgrade your videocard.

Grand theft auto-edposted - Aug, 13 2002 - 01:21
Quazar, u seem to be the tech of this site, so my above question is now directed at you. If the cracked version of GTA3 is very laggy and shitty now, will the real game with the patch run better on my system (AMD 550 with TNT2 nvidia card)?

Quazar™posted - Aug, 13 2002 - 04:09
Mmmm........... well thats kinda a hard question. i have a craked version and it works fine, or well almost fine but thats not the point. your system might be a little inadaquate for the game (no offense) but if you set all the settings on low you might get a good gameplay experience. my suggestion is to save your money and instead use it to get a better video card...possibly a Nvidia Geforce 3 ti 200 64mb or well you might want the 128 version. i think it cost under $100 now and its a great purchase, well the 128 version might be a little more 130$ max id say. not to sound like a hardware freak. so....save your money on the game because there is no noticable change in the cracked and athentic versions that i can find. in summary no differnce. and thanks fer spelling my name right. and hardware does help.

Grand Theft Auto-edposted - Aug, 13 2002 - 04:34
ok thx for the input quazar, but the thing is, I think it WILL work better because the patch is actually able to be installed with the real game, and you never no, maybe the ripped version of my game is shit. Oh well thx for replying and advice on the hardware, and by the way u don't sound like a hardware freak, its just that every 1 on else this site is comp illiterate :) thx again.

Quazar™posted - Aug, 13 2002 - 04:56

put disc 2 in your cd-rom holder thingy and then click on it after a few seconds it should wurk. if that doesnt wurk email me at battellord191@yahoo.com

It'll ask you a few gay questions like "Do you want to back up your files?", just say no and continue, after that, the rest is done on its own. It worked for me tell me if it works for you.

Quazar, sorry. The "Load Game" patch that you posted at this link "http://dl.gamecopyworld.com/dl.cgi?GTA3_SURFMAN!" downloads as a file labled with a .ace file extension. I've never seen one of those before, and don't know how to run them, or if I should change the file extension to something else to run it. I see all these replies from people saying how great the patch works, and I can't figure out how to use it. The file downloads exactly as this: "GTA3_SURFMAN.ace" Thanks.

GhettoRiceBoiposted - Aug, 19 2002 - 13:03
Hey.. (Arrr & Quazar), I thought that if it was a .dll file not found problem.. You need to install the latest Direct X that comes with the game.. In GTA3, you need to install the DirectX 8.1 try that. install it and see if the game runs.. I used to have problems with other games and I always solve it by loading the directx the game comes with.. Caio..

Quazar™posted - Aug, 19 2002 - 14:30
a .dll file is a system or program file that runs the thing. could be drivers, or anything else that you can think of. I say just download it again or try a differnet mirror. but you should also try caio's idea

Im upgrading my pc from a 1.8ghz, 256mb rdram, Gf3 ti 200 to a 2.0ghz, 1gb rdram and a Gf4 Ti 4200. but does anybody know where i can find 1gb of rd memory (pc800) fer less than 600$ or a GF4 Ti 4200 64mb (no tv-out) fer less than 150$ ?

that happens to me a lot some too but try closing all non-essential background programs to free up some memory. usualu fer me it starts to run smooth about 4 or 5 minutes into the game.

Skidpadposted - Aug, 24 2002 - 23:20
I have a Pentium 4 2.53gz 512mb Ram and geforce 4 ti4600 I used to have a Pentium 3 450mhz 128ram and a voodoo 3 and the game runs great now! For the people who are still having problems with the game speed, you have to upgrade i recomend buying a geforce3,4. You might find that you dont have an AGP slot for new cards, but you can still get a good pci card.Or if your just to lazy try closing background progarms that your not using you can do this using the Ctrl+Alt+Del Keys.You can also buy Ram and its cheap now and it'll make a big difference in the game.

Skidpadposted - Aug, 25 2002 - 00:15
GO TO WWW.EZBOARD.COM THEY A NEW FIX CALLED HIGHFPS IT CAN BOAST YOUR GAME BY 30 FPS IT TURNS OF SOME DISPLAY SETTINGS LIKE RAIN etc. NOW YOU DONT HAVE TO UPGRADE YOUR HARDWARE!!!!!!!!

yes it does run smooth after few minutes,, but i would like to know how to improves it graphical performance, cause mine still displays "stair-steps" you know it right?? i thought by upgrading my pc i could eliminate those stair-steps..

Quazar™posted - Aug, 25 2002 - 06:29

Jimposted - Aug, 26 2002 - 17:37
When running the game in W98/W98SE you will need to turn on the DMA setting on your HDD. this will then make the game much more playable (if it is currently lagging). Otherwise get a faster computer w/ at least 64Mb of video memory (not shared though).

You people are a little impatient. Take the time to research your drivers and dlls. This game runs fine with no bugs on a AMD K6-2 450, 128megs of ram and a voodoo3 card. Maybe you need to pay for PC support??

OK EVERYONE, I HAVE THE ANSWER TO THE LAG PROBLEM. I RECENTLY GOT A GeFORCE 4 and it lagged like hell. SO WHAT YOU DO IS YOU HAVE TO TURN OFF FRAMESYNC. THAT DID IT FOR ME.

Quazar™posted - Sep, 02 2002 - 05:56
PRYO!!. if you had a GF4 Ti then it would not matter if you had framesync on or not. but then you probly got the Mx version didnt you? and framesync will imporve framerates at the loss of quality. but a Gf4 ti 4200, 4400, 4600, would not slow fer that.... BUT AN MX 440 OR 460 WOULD!!!!!!!

ghettoboiposted - Sep, 04 2002 - 13:52
Skidpad, I am surprised you still use Voodoo cards. They have gone down under.. I used to have a Voodoo 5 5500AGO and I snapped it in half cos it was so good(catch my drift).. And you Asleigh Robins.. PLAYSTATION SUCKS.. Especially one.. It won't be able to handle GTA3..

GOOD GOD BONO IF THERE IS ONE THING I CANT STAND ITS STUPID PEOPLE. IF YOU HAD READ 2 MESSAGES UP FROM YOURS THEN YOU WOULD KNOW WUT I MEAN. AAAAHHHHH!!! SOME PEOPLE. and woohoo if you had read the readme in your gta3 directory thgen you would know that the fix for that is in there (or the addrress is to whre to get the fix)just to prove myslef correct againg: TROUBLESHOOTING _________________ Windows XP + nVIDIA based cards (possibly other brands): We have found a possible problem with Windows XP that manifests itself as graphical problems both in the game menu and also during game play. We have traced this problem to be a Windows XP problem. Technically this problem is solved by the use of a newer version of d3d8.dll than is shipped on CD with Windows XP. (The version on the Windows XP CD that has problems is 5.1.26000.0 – versions tested without error include 5.1.2600.15 and 5.1.2600.29) Currently the only way we know to update this dll file is to install the Windows XP Patch: “The Computer Cannot Enter Standby or Hibernate If a Direct3D-Based Screen Saver Is Running (Q306676)” downloadable from the following Web Site: http://download.microsoft.com/download/whistler/Patch/Q306676/WXP/EN- US/Q306676_WXP_SP1_x86_ENU.exe.

1. If you said buy a PS2 then get a freaken life and buy an xbox or a PC. 2. If you have problems with the 12mb memory problem ot cant be fixed. There is one way...BUY A FREAKEN GRAPHICS CARD. 3.If you cant load your games then download gta3 V1.1 patch wich can be found on most fan sites. 4.If your having probs with xp i saw an xp patch somewhere. If you cant find it then get win98. 5.If you have probs with lag then use your eyes and look on the requirments. 6.IF YOU HAVE GOT A PS2 GO AND GET AN XBOX! I agree with quazar. You lot are stupid.

if you want to start the game on a 16 meg voodoo 3 you have to set the screen res as low as you can - this frees up video mem and the game will run. Of course it won't run very well, it'll freeze real quick. I heard that there's a patch to avoid hangs on voodoo but can't fint it. If anyone does, a mail plz ? :)

Question is, how do I find out what version of the game I'm running, I need to know whether it's 1.0 or 1.1. Any help?

Two words - it sucks. It won't even work on a Voodoo 3Dfx video card. What kind of game is that? Lots of people have voodoo cards. I've played the game at a friends and its great but it royaly sucks a$$ that it won't work with a voodoo card.

Quazar™posted - Dec, 31 2002 - 19:50
dude, voodoo's suck, they are so old even if it was compatible with GTA3 you would get such choppiness and lagg that it wouldnt be playable anyway. Just save up a hundred or so dollars and buy a NVIDIA GeForce 3 Ti 500. awsome card, plus its cheap these days, or you could pay 4 times more fer an ATI Radeon 9700 Pro

I bought the original game, patched to v1.1 and yes it is truly amazing. The constant spinning of the cd drive to check the protection is annoying and the cd is very hot when you are finished playing. Seems like us poor fuckers who bought the game are suffering for those who got the warez - I'm off to find a nocd for 1.1

Hi guys, forgive me if i have missed something above... ive been reading for a while now and have a headache =)... but i didnt see anything relating to this particular problem.... The game loads & runs, but after a while (2-5mins) the pc locks up completely... i am running a p3 800 with gf3 ti200, 256mb ram, win98se the game runs smooth (v1.1) when it actually runs.... also i occasionally get graphics corruption in the menu & lag in the menu... but i wont loose too much sleep over that... i have just spent some time thrashing jk 2 just to make sure its not general system instability... but after running on high detail for 30 mins it is still going fine... the microsoft patch you mentioned... do i need it for w98? ive gotten confused... also is there anyway you know to get the ac97 sound chip to work with this game?

Quazar™posted - Jan, 12 2003 - 18:26
if you have downloaded a faulty mod or map or anything lately and is somehow not right, when its time fer your computer to render it it will crash cause it wurkin. get it? and you get glitches because your video card is overheating (i know it is because i had that same card) get a fan and put it on it or something. and no you dont need the Xp patch wor win98

jerichoposted - Jan, 12 2003 - 21:53
no mods or maps, straight after a fresh instal... and its not at any particular rendering point... somtimes it just crashes in the menu.... when you move to a different page in the menu the corruption goes away.... this geforce is made by inno 3d... it has a large heat sink assemble with a blue orb cooler on the core & ram.... the heat sink is frosty... unless the termal compound is not doing its job i dont think its a heat issue... but i will check... it runs jedi knight 2 for 45 mins at high qual 800X600 without so much as a jitter or artefact... but it crashed today on 3dmark 2000 on the first helicopter test about half way.... any idea?

Vexed by a Voodooposted - Jan, 14 2003 - 09:36
This question is for Quazar, seeing that you seem to be the most informed person on this site. I have a Pentium 3 500mhz with 640mb ram and an extremely annoying voodoo3 video card. I was looking to invest in a video card, and since I'm an amateur in the world of video cards I'd like to know what you'd recommend. Something moderately priced, yet something compatible with my computer. I've been looking online and quite frankly it's all quite perplexing. For example, I don't understand the pros and cons of a Nvidia Geforce4 Ti vs. the mx, also complaints of overheating, fans, etc. It's driving me crazy and if you could just lay out what my basic concerns should be I would really appreciate it. Again, your wisdom would be extremely helpful. Thanks.

Quazar™posted - Jan, 15 2003 - 02:14
:) , good news i can help ya. 2 questions i need to know the asnwers to first. 1.) Does your computer have a AGP slot, im not sure if the voodoo3 is PCi or AGP so thats why i ask. 2.) how much money are you willing to spend on a video card. on one end for about $400 you can get the best card on the market or on the other end about $40 for one slightly better than yours now. and MOST cards have adequate cooling so overheating is never really that big of a problem unless you plan on overclocking, but i recommend you get a card with a fan on it. and the differnce between the Gf 4 Ti and Mx could not be great. for one the Ti (titanium) is clocked higher and most of the time is more stable. the MX is considered a value or low-end graphics card, the Ti is the oppsite. What makes the Ti so much better is that it has the nfiniteX2 engine while the MX just uses the old geforce 2 engine but with a higher clock speed. Asumming you have an agp slot i would recommend the GF3 Ti 500, or the Gf4 Ti 4200. both are about $100 and perform great. If you have a PCI slot only then the Geforce 4 Mx 460 is probably the best you can do, but i would rather buy another computer than get that piece of crap. but before i can give you a definate decision or recommendation i need those 2 questions i asked earlier to be answered.

Quazar™posted - Jan, 15 2003 - 02:16
*CORRECTION* and the differnce between the Gf 4 Ti and Mx could not be greater.

Hey whats shakin' Game Guru. Well I have played Grand Theft Auto 3 on my friend's Playstation. It was so good and awesome, that I got it for my birthday. But it was for the computer. So I installed it and right when I put the play cd in, it said that it needed 12MB of video memory. Where and how can i get and install 12MB of video memory. Help me please Game Guru.

dude, you can't play radio stations without cd, you can only listen mp3 station which you have to put some mp3 on mp3 directory, ehe its pretty cool actually, cruising around while listening Tupac

Dude... The game kicks ass, though the lack of ability to save your game is terrible.Ihad got a patch for it, though it corrupted the files after a short time. How do I change this?

Thanks for all of your help Quazar. I'm running on winXP with P3 600MhZ 512MB RAM and 16MB diamond viper. Once I got the no cd patch at http://www.magenheimer.com/gta3help/download.htm everything works great including loading saved games. With graphics turned down it runs OK. I'm waiting for my new GEFORCE 4 256MB card to arrive so it won't be as chunky.
