Visual glitches?

Recommended Posts

DarkBaron    0

Hey guys,

I recently "persuaded" my friend to buy me this amazing game on Steam, by offering to pay him back. But when I tried to play, I got video glitches through cutscenes and gameplay. I've got some screenshots and as you can see, they change whenever I alt tabbed, but never went away, I tried reinstalling but to no avail. Anyone got any fixes?

I'm thinking that it is a hardware (graphics card) or software (video driver/operating system) problem. Posting your system specs may get you more help from those with more insight about a problem such as this. EDIT: I have no experience with downloaded copies of games, i.e. Steam, but from what I have observed during my time at TGTAP they are susceptible to problems such as this as opposed to purchasing the game on disk. Good luck.

Have you tried setting your game video settings back to the defaults? For example: usually something like turning the frame limiter off can cause problems, no matter how close to top-of-the-line your system is.

It DOES cause problems on high-end PC's, GTA 3 and VC weren't made to run at high frame rate. GTA SA seems to run well on high-end PC's except for the occasional mouse freeze.

ATI raedon has problems running GTA3 on Xp. I had this prob on my laptop. Go to your GTA3 MENU> OPTIONS>DISPLAY SETTINGS> TRAILS>OFF. Then to the GTA 3 User Files directory from my documents and delete the gta3.set file. Then open your game directory>models>and delete the txd.img and txd.dir.

Run the game and it should work fine.

i wish it could be run under opengl, i never have issues with those games, which means, of course, im NOT a fan of unrealbased games, they all have these fgraphical gltiches n thelikes, and far cry look shite and runs choppy n laggy with the default direct3d, but that game CAN be run under opengl fortunately =)
